About This File

This is a Complete Episode replacing "Knee Deep in the Dead".

This is a 'NO CHEATS NEEDED' WAD with alot of work put into the way it looks (and of course plays). There are many lighting effects, staircases, ledges, lifts, etc. There are no Cyberdemons, or Masterminds, so just have fun. It still is by no means the easiest thing in the world, but there are selectable skill levels (I SUGGEST 'HURT ME PLENTY' for most of you).

There is new music for two of the levels (E1M1 and E1M8), a secret level, new menu and tally screen graphics, a COMPLETELY NEW CLOUDY SKY, one new wall texture (a railing), and a few textures brought in from Doom2.

Superb stuff, but not for beginners - not because of difficult opposition, but fairly complex layouts and problem solving. But fantastic wad overall.

Not bad at all.

I was actually quite surprised by the detail in this episode. I'd say this author is the master at creating good looking stairs. However, as others have said, this episode is let down by the lack of good action. I also have to mention that the secrets are too hard to find. The author put secret doors on random walls that don't stand out, so you would never know they were there unless you click on everything in sight. Secrets always need some kind of hint!

Nice '96 episode. It's very easy, but worth playing. The level designs feel like a cross between TEUTIC.WAD and Dr. Sleep's style. It could've used more texture variation, though. 4/5

An excellent epsiode replacement. Great layouts, though a bit too brown, and some great fights.

Nothing really wrong with it but nothing great either. None of the fights makes me feel like a superstar. Some stuff is well thought out. I propose that this wad have more action! 2 Stars. --- Starburst.

      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.

      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
