About This File

That's what THE CRYPT is all about. A concerted attempt to create a level that's fun AND challenging. THE CRYPT is about skulking and strafing and sniping and strategy! the surroundings were designed for multiple strategic methods. Use the enemies' AI against them! Use cover to defend! Find alternate routes to circle around the enemy and lure them to where YOU have the advantage! THAT'S the Crypt. Not tedious teleporter puzzles or obnoxiously placed keys and powerups. Not swarms of enemies that can only be dispersed with the BFG. In fact there IS no BFG. No annoying, tedious Cyberdemons, either. Just cool stuff, and a kick ass, well-tuned challenge that doesn't force you to use the cheats!.

Badly made map from over 23 years ago. Made of mostly ugly angular maze. I found few HOMs serving as teleport. Gameplay is bad. A lots of backtracking, monster encounters are dull (with litteraly pair of exceptions). The only pro is chaingun replacement. But new sounds are like most of replacment of that era. PS. Don't even bother with .deh file. It changes something with pistol animation, but you rather won't use it, because chaingun is on a start. 1.75/5*

Kinda cool looking machinegun replacement (always liked it). Other than that, the author completly failed at what he set out to do. He claims in his text file that 99.9% of the levels around back then sucked. Unfortunaly this level is ONE OF THEM. It stinks monkey piss. Well, atleast this is probaly the first guy to come up with the idea of switching the pistol from left-handed to right-handed (poorly done though).

      Why the hell have I not been using this. Incredible, 5 stars.

      It was difficult for me, but I enjoyed it, a few more ammo pick ups and maybe some health too, but other than that it's a good level.

      I should've heeded the warnings from the other reviews...

      Horrible and unenjoyable, it's what I can say about this megawad.  Does it really need to be archviles and cyberdemons in every corner and tight corridors, ambushing with nowhere to go?  Yes, textures are very monotonous, and you got corridor after corridor with same floor/ceiling height.  It's extremely annoying to hunt for that switch that will let you continue, and, surprise!  They're hidden inside the walls without being secrets and no hints where to look for, even with ALLMAP cheat you get lost very easily

      Not quite as bad as some other comments said, for an old wad anyway. Playable but easy at UV. Some poor texture alignments, nearly all brightly lit, no atmosphere. New sounds are mostly cranky but I liked the machine gun. The voice sounds the same as in "Wild West Of The North" - WEST.WAD which was by Mike Lasota and which also has cranky (but different again) sounds.
