About This File

Ok for Deathmatch but v e r y playable as one player, judging by the response of play-testers.

"The Cabal has started striking back at you. That last gateway should have taken you... well somewhere else. Not to an arena where thousands of humans have lost their souls to hungry demons. As you get ready for the first wave of hellspawned gladiators you swear to blast the emperor's thumbs off before he can even think about turning them down on you..."

Nonetheless this is a drop-off in quality from the earlier Cabal wads; it's based around an arena, and like Duran Duran's mid-80s live album of the same name it's frustrating and bland, despite having "Wild Boys" on the end. I didn't realise until recently how much Duran Duran owed to Roxy Music. I remember the video for "Girls on Film" being a great disappointment, because the last thing I want to look at during the throes of onanistic bliss is the chubby face of Simon Le Bon.

Ok, this is now my review for this map (instead of my erroneous first post): The 5th part of the cabal series is a fun map. It's quite small but filled with action. The fights aren't that hard but challenging enough and the secrets are put nicely into the map. The visual aspect is rather mediocre, but good enough for a 1995 wad and by no means ugly. A nice short fun, that I recommend to download. 4/5 -Milian

Sorry, I can't play this to the end. It's the 4th map of the Cabal-series and by far the weakest. Boring, misaligned textures, common layout. It's tough, but in a discouraging, not in a challenging way. I would play it, just for the sake of completeness, but it has more than 300 monsters! And the time this would take is simply not worth it. Play parts 1-3 instead. 1/5 -Milian

      When first reading this wad's description I thought this will be a 1994 style map, where someone just tried to recreate his office building to shoot up his colleages. Boy, was I wrong!   Going Down emerged as one of my favourite megawads so far, with its very clever use of small to medium map space and interesting gameplay mechanics in every single map. The first couple of maps start innocent enough, but soon you will find yourself navigating literal crawl spaces, thinking about use of space and / or slight puzzle mechanics just before being thrown into hell itself and fighting for your life. Going Down is designed as a literal descent into hell, which was the most beautifully realized aspect of it. How every map slightly changes into a more and more hellish theme is just great, great design work. Even though the later maps delve into slaughter territory I must admit that I still quite enjoyed it. Actually this was the first time I enjoyed being slaugthered and figuring out how to approach the map.   Going Down is simply an amazing piece of work, oozing quality from start to finish and rewarding the player with incredible elevator music inbetween. A must play.

      Such a wonderful creation! I really wish there were some more maps so this could make it into ZDaemon Thursday Night Survival (TNS) someday...

      This is a solid contender for being the absolute best Megawad that I've ever played.

      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.
