About This File

You've done your job -- you saved mankind for what seems like the millionth time, and for what? Sure, you get a few thousand dollars, but the thing you need right now is some good old fashioned R & R. With your money, you purchase a room at the Holiday Hotel and pay the clerk. You take your key, go to your room, and right as you're about to insert it, you're not at the hotel anymore. You've been teleported, but where?

There's no time to think about it. Cacodemons, demons, imps, and even your old friend Mancubus are all going to make you feel sorry you ever came here, even if it was against your will. You look around; a double barreled shotgun. A big grin creeps across your face. You grab it, put on the radiation suit nearby and show those imps who's boss. You turn around and walk forward, until you come to the end. You keep going, fall, run to escape the fiery coals, and find yourself looking at a giant arena surrounded by red torches where cyber demons and spider bosses fight it out to the death.

It is the year 2012, and where these guys come from, that's when their `Olympics' are held. Only these aren't the usual Olympics; this is an all-out war where the populous send out their finest warriors to battle it out in a vicious fight to the death. You've intruded on their little game, and now they're sending their body guards to make sure it doesn't happen again.

I liked it - it's playable, and the single cyber fight after the lift was kinda tricky

This comes with an enormously bloated 7,000-word (!) readme which has a long section of level design tips. It's hilarious, because the level is so awful, unbelievably awful. The author greatly overestimated his talents. It's a big mess, with loads of cyberdemons and spider masterminds set up to fight each other, loads of power-ups sitting around randomly, random textures, hand-drawn rooms. Zero stars for the level, five stars for the comedy.

      I...did not review this, okay. well, it's blue and it's pretty decent and setpiece-y. get used to ribbiks' style and this one is just like all his other maps, very well-designed and fun to play. just watch out for MAP03's final area.

      it's one of those classic 90's wads you can probably just sift through, but it's not that good. plenty of inescapable pits, some awful level progression, and some actually trollish crusher placement lie within this one.

      A few really good maps supported by a bunch of alright ones. Visuals are mostly Plutonia-inspired, with the occasional veering into Shores of Hell type mish-mash architecture. Difficulty is about on par with DOOM2.wad I think. Overall, a rather pedestrian affair, although the standout maps are certainly worth the time.

      BACK TO SATURN X E1: GET OUT OF MY STATIONS REVIEW:   The Good:   - Stunning visuals   - Great monster placement   - Lots of (clever) secrets and they are rewarding   - Enough ammo to keep you going   - The names of the Maps LOL!   - Loads of fun   - Awesome music!   The Bad:   - Not long enough. LOL! I loved it so much, I didn't want it to end!   In Short: I've actually played this fantastic WAD at least 6 or 7 times. Why? This is my second favorite WAD of all time, only bested by its successor, BTSX Episode 2: Fountain of Sparks. I remember the very first time I played it a couple of years ago like it was yesterday. How many times can you say that (in a good way) about a game?   I remember being completely blown away by the architectural designs at the time. I even remember giggling as I sunk in the ocean on the final Map, only to read something like "To Be Continued..." and thinking, "Awww....it's over." But I admit that, like everyone else, I had loads of fun with this.    There is lack of a "customary" final boss (I wasn't certain if this was a "Good" or "Bad" element of the game, hence why it's in neither category above - it really will depend on the player so I kept it neutral). But don't let that deter you! The final "stage" in the last (playable) Map is as memorable as it is wicked, and it'll keep you on your toes just like any other customary boss!   Play this WAD if it's the only WAD you ever play. Definite replay value.   Well deserved Cacoward. Thanks, Team, for making it!   5 out of 5 stars with me.  ~ dylux

      JENESIS REVIEW:   - Single Player - UV Settings - Pistol starts every Map - Third time playing in about 4-5 years span   The Good:    - Continuous Maps    - Great architecture    - Incredible Hellish themes    - Excellent monster placement    - Clever puzzles    - Loads of secrets. Most are clever as well.    - Great music    - Lots of stuff to get you alive and stocked    - Levels are just the right size. Not small nor are they huuuuuuge.    - Not a slaughterfest, but not easy either. Difficulty is perfect for single player.   The Bad:     - There's no Jenesis II.    In short:   Sometimes, finding a new DooM WAD to play is like finding a decent horror movie to watch: You're going to go through a few crappy ones before you find one that makes it all worthwhile. Jenesis is one of those WADS to play that's worth going through some crappy ones first.   If you are looking for a great balance between dog fighting and puzzle solving, then Jenesis is for you. This game was fun as hell - every level.    Anyone who plays this can easily tell that MUCH work went into this fantastic game. It's WADs like this one that keep me playing. Bravo Mr. Paddock!   You have huge shoes to fill, Jenesis - for my next WAD I play. One of my all time faves. Well deserved Cacoward. What a game! :)   5 out of 5 Stars.
