Some pretty ok maps blended with some of the most annoying maps I have ever played, so score dropped to 3, despite e3m7 being worthy of a 5. Why do people do this? K(eep) I(t) S(imple) S(tupid).

Not too bad for 1996 map set. Worth the play.

Very very very good, but not legendary.

There's a map in here which has blocking torches placed on UV. I don't get why you'd want to punish players(seriously what) for playing on UV. The maps are decent for the most part, although it does start out pretty rough. 3/5

^ Torches are there to make the map more difficult on UV (you have to go back to start and fight cacodemons). Makes sense to me, UV should be harder than other difficulty levels... Anyway, this is a great great episode in my opinion, the design and gameplay are good and very varied, there are many interesting experiments/ideas and overall Back To Hell presents a good challenge even by modern standards. I love it.

An awesome 90's Hell episode like few I've ever played. These maps aren't pretty, but they have really original ideas and traps, as well as a lot of secrets. I feel like this PWAD really captured the Petersen essence without being too ugly or derivative. 3.5/5

This is one of the best wads ever made because of the possibility of getting 112% secrets.

Actually quite good. The first two levels are ' lamish '95-levels but E3M3 and after that are better and have quite innovative design solutions. Try E3M4 for cacodemons.

This episode deserves a lot more attention. I found myself thoroughly enjoying it. It's rare that anyone sticks with the hell theme like this pack. The game play presents a few challenges, and the ammo placement is good for a 90s WAD. The Cacochase map is one of my new favorites. This is definitely a change from all the boring base levels out there. 4/5

      Superb firework display of thousands of fireballs seeming in slow motion because of the vastness - mostly avoidable as they land where you were ages ago; but worth playing just to see it. A HUGE square surrounded by tiers with hundreds of imps and a few others, plus a blockhouse you can enter first to collect ammo.  Fighting through the hundreds of monsters when you get onto the tiers is another matter, overwhelming at UV. I cheated to finish so at least I could review.  Some HOM bugs.

      Laggy hell with 32k monsters and too much invulnerability spheres. Just... total vomit.

      Insanity, with voodoo dolls (see second screenshot).  I get the idea of a shooting gallery if that rocks your boat, but 6000 monsters behind railings- as far as the eye can see, FFS! My PC crawled when I looked towards the invuln spheres (someone said 32 k of them and you can't avoid picking up thousands at a time). In the end I cheated with god mode and no-clipping, and waded in among the chaingunners until I got bored.

      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.
