Makes my Christmas better since 2009. A true happiness bringer, absolute classic never getting old.

wad is ugly, but the combat definitely gives the Hell Revealed vibe (this was before HR btw). a bit overdose on shotgun guys and revenants, and sometimes the layouts are wonky, with at least half the wad being mostly DM layouts. at the very least this is a Christmas-themed MW so that's cool.

There wasn't much new graphics, and levels were crude representations of what they were supposed to be. So aesthetics-wise, this wad is lacking and doesn't have that much of a "Christmas feel". Gameplay-wise, it overuses Revenants, has some hitscan hell parts, and there's absolutely no sense of difficulty progression with outright schizophrenic difficulty. I still had some fun though and some of the levels were neat. A decent pick if you're looking for an old school wad, but very lacking by modern standards

IMO it's done just enough Xmas spirit to not overwhelm the DOOM game (I don't want a Xmas makeover like the Simpsons one). So for that, it's brilliantly done. Does anyone know where did the "12 days of christmas" come from because this version is perhaps the BEST I've ever heard, using a key transition to keep it fun!

What the fuck is this stinking shit? Annoying sounds, missing or misaligned textures, boring and crappy map design... Mandatory 0/5.

I admit, now, it seems really cheesy. However, when I first played this, I thought it was awesome, walking in a winter wonderland with Christmas music in the background killing demons. This WAD has been a classic for me and my friends. We play Co-Op every December for the past 10 years. Still pretty fun singleplayer.

A reasonable wad, from 1995, it looks ok and plays pretty alright. It looks of course a little dated but for novelty value it's ok. The sprites (trees) look good but of course creating Christmas themed monsters and more textures would have been good. 3 stars cannonball

You'll always find this in Doom servers around the holiday season, Even if it doesn't have the best maps ever made, it's friggin' H2H Xmas. Legendary WAD.

It's technically very crude. The new graphics are very poor and the voice samples are... eccentric. There's a spiral staircase on level three that's horrible. But it's fun to play, so four stars; it's like a kind of crude punk Christmas wad.

I liked the mod (except for some maps which are God-awful), it doesn't bring Christmas feeling, however. Also, most of the custom textures look awful. (Not sprites, however)

The new graphics are ok. I didn't like most of the levels though. Some of them felt really random and didn't even match the names of the level given.

This pwad is simply awesome!!! Very challenging. The spirit of Christmas is only in the graphics, not in the gameplay (which is terribly efficient)... Anyway, it's a must for our collection, and not only because it was "Revolutionary for its time"!!! 5/5 - Jive

      It's a very impressive megawad with a nice themed ancient Egypt atmosphere, with very nice choosing of textures to contribute to that theme, very nice architecture and impressive (and very risky) twist on the story going from ancient Egypt to alien spaceships, without using hi-pitched colors like in Ancient Aliens. Also, very tough megawad, if you're masochist enough, you can play it with Complex Doom and add LCA for more doses of pain.

      It's okay. Quite easy due to the abundance of artifacts, mana, & health. The level design is fine, nothing special. The only truly bad part was the unmarked puzzle bookcases, forcing you to wallhump the entire library as a last resort. Otherwise it's pretty simple stuff, running around finding keys and smashing monsters. The texturing and lighting aren't fantastic but aren't noticeably bad either. The only glaring issue is that many windows just show a wall textured with the sky texture rather than an area with a sky ceiling. Yet there are perfectly normal outdoor areas. Perhaps the author only figured it out skies halfway through development? Anyways, this is worth your time if you want an hour or two of simple Hexen fun.

      It's a nice wad overall, nice map design, textures and monster placement, enjoyed playing on D-Touch (GZDoom1.8) with Dude4th weapon mod.  My only complain would be the secrets, they have very few to no clues about their position.  There was a problem on E3M5 on the secrets around the squared starting room with stairs, the wall closes and let me stuck inside, had to use idclip to get out from those secret rooms.

      I recently played through this continuously twice on UV. Overall I feel this is an expertly crafted WAD from start to finish. Beautiful scenery, great soundtrack, and intense gameplay. Maybe a little too intense sometimes, and with that it's probably not a WAD I'll recommend to newbies. If less experienced players absolutely have to try it, I suggest playing on the lower difficulty modes as the included readme suggests. Describing the later maps of this WAD as "brutal" on UV is an understatement to say the least.
