decent '95 set with no major setbacks. look out for the teleport traps though, there are a lot of unfair ones.

Played on UV, ZDoom.

 

A pretty decent 7 level early Doom 2 wad. Not spectacular, but well put together and quite tough in places. I only came across two green armours in the first four levels, and ammo could get tight as well - I found myself having to use the chainsaw a fair bit, including on Cacodemons and Pain Elementals at times. I did accumulate 500 plasma cells before finding anything to fire them with though, this being the BFG near the end of level 5 (maybe missed finding the regular plasma rifle earlier on). The wad's creator also opted to end with an Icon Of Sin, which is often a dubious choice, but is well done here, with a simple but clever and  effective take on the concept.

 

Three stars is maybe a bit harsh, 3.5+ probably nearer the mark.

A nice mishmash of doom-esque levels. Some are like E1 & E2 or E3 and some like E4. All in all nothing spectacular but nothing wrong either. 3/5 for its time 2/5 for 2012 -Ofisil

A great episode by 1995 standards. The maps aren't pretty, but they're loaded with challenging battles and interesting traps. The only flaw is that the first two maps are boring. 4/5

A levelset from 1995, coincidentally the same year as Van Halen's "Balance". This set of levels is really good. It gets off to a dull start - Map01 is a bit E3-esque, Map02 has a pleasing E2 style, but they aren't anything special. It picks up greatly with Map03, which is excellent, a tough E4-style map. Map04 is pretty good as well. Map05 is a bit ropey (a techbase) but Map06 and 07 are solid although they don't hit me. Worth it for Map03 alone.

      Simple, clearly a first wad.  All on the flat with big, brightly lit, and architecturally implausible rooms. The first map has two rooms, the second map one, and the third map one plus a kind of exit lobby. You can do one of two things - just run past the monsters and finish (I did it in 35 seconds), or have a bit of fun killing the monsters first. No noticable bugs. I hope the author will go on (or went on) to greater things.

      Absolutely ludicrous, Now I need a new keyboard. Technically as bad as a wad can be, surely deliberate. I like to check out low-rated wads, so it's a pity that some clowns gave this  (and other bad ones) 5 stars, because averaged with correct low scores they end up with a middling rating and can be missed.

      Would not play with PRBoom, with errors about missing files : FluidR3_GM.sf2 and STARTAN2.  These were not provided in the zip file.
