About This File

Ever wonder where all of those soldiers you :have to kill come from? Well, your curiosity :got the best of you, and you decided to find out.

:Bad idea.

:On a visit to the Aubrey Penhew Military Academy, :you were horrified to learn that the entire campus -- faculty, staff, and students -- have been :taken over by those Nefarious Demons From Beyond :Space and Time. You were stripped of your gear, :smacked around, and made to watch twelve straight :hours of "Fantasy Island" re-runs.

:Bummer.

:After enduring a half day of your one-time comrades :kneeling on their knees making "'da plane! 'da plane!" :jokes, you were ready saw off your ears with a butter :knife. Just as you were eyeying your plastic utensils, :the Sgt.-in-charge dashed in and announced that :the parade-in-review was about to start.

:You were unceremoniously thrown into a basement storage :room, your only company in the sudden solitude being :the pounding of your heart and the remembered sound of :Ricardo Montobaln spewing platitudes to the half-crazed :Tatoo.

:Around you, the once-dapper cadets could be heard :readying their soiled uniforms for a twisted :version of the weekly pass-in-review. You were about :to turn inward to try to decide if Tatoo and Mr. Rourke's :relationship was a mere working one or somehow something :more, when you realized that the griping of the cadets around :you had a decidedly dark tone to it. That alone was of little :surprise -- after all, they were possessed and all -- but :you'd been in the marines long enough to hear the truth behind :the growling, screeching, pea-soup-spitting words.

:The academy had a serious morale problem.

:Hope jolted your heart. You could use this knowledge. If only...

:That was when your hand touched the smooth barrel of the shotgun.

:You grinned evily. Now it was time to pay those bastards back. :You decided as you strode towards the door that, if there were :enough left alive, you'd make them watch "Starsky and Hutch"... :in German.

:With thoughts of Phillip Michael Glasier spouting :"Du! Kommen Sie hier!", you pressed the door and watched as it :started sliding upwards...

It works, and it's a little boring. I spiced it up with Vanilla Brutal Doom and it's much morf fun with that. This wad comes with a sweet sound pack too! With killer clips from Beavis and Butthead to make sure your ears bleed within a couple minutes!

Ever wondered what the "venetian blind crash" looks like in vanilla Doom? Here's your example WAD! The large outdoor area with the truckloads of pistol zombies can produce the effect fairly regularly. Ignoring that, it's basically just a lot of dull zombie spam that you mow down with ease. 1/5 -VV

I thought this wad was pretty good for an oldschool Ultimate DooM map. It was easy to play with plenty of Shotgunners and Zombiemen to frag. You are faced with two Barons Of Hell when you get the Yellow Key. Overall, its not too bad. 4/5.-Candle M

      Legendary. Once saw someone say that the maps were "ugly". They can have the opinion they want, but man, is this wad out of this world in terms of looks, gameplay and variety. A must-play.

      This had lots of fun exploratory elements and fancy visuals, but I wasn't so keen on the abundance of dark caves crammed with the larger Doom 2 beastiary. At first it started to feel like a commitment playing this wad with the first few maps leaving much to be desired, but I started having more fun when I reached maps that had more breathing room for running and gunning. The lesser maps really feel like they were early efforts, with some consisting almost entirely of cave crawls - made worse by the fact that many of them have hidden lines on the automap. Another thing to note: Ritenour seems to like putting things very close to the edge like a key or a switch, so make sure you check every corner carefully, as some solutions were very close to a cliff edge. Falling off could spell your Doom, as often the lower cliff ledges damage the player with no escape. There were also very thin ledges which could be climbed, so that was another easy to miss solution. Despite the low points dragging the experience a bit I greatly enjoyed the visual work of crashing waves, a clever skybox and nice island locales with mountainous structures and buildings. It was worth a visit in Doom's earthen vanilla equivalent - and it's quite the achievement for something this old, I just wish I could see where I was going in those darn caves...

      here for the seventeenth installment of dwspd, the theme is to build a canyon. like the previous installment, this is a relatively common theme for mapping, therefore the maps are expected to be pretty decent, and well they mostly deliver. once again Fredrik's map is the first one, and it blows everything else out of the water. kind of a bad thing to make it the first map to be honest though, because it could make some players believe that the other maps after it would be just as good, but that won't be the case when you play the rest, as they don't really have as much bite as that one does. to further exemplify that, once again the MAP02 slot is disappointing in comparison, while MAP06 and MAP07 are both unfinished (nothing but layout in MAP06, while it's pretty much impossible to get the red key in MAP07. not the worst to offer, and Fredrik's map serves as an insane opening challenge.

      dwspd's sweet sixteenth installment focuses on the theme of abandoned mines. now that's a good map to make a theme on, MAP26 is a personal favorite of mine for Doom 2, and these maps as a whole do pretty well to capture that theme. of course there's a few weak ones like MAP02, but at least they adhere to the theme. many of the maps have low monster counts and low challenge overall. the exception is naturally Fredrik's map, one of his most unforgiving. pretty ballsy to actually make that the first map to play here (you don't need the blue key by the way). not much else to say overall, other than thematically speaking this did pretty great.
