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

      Pretty good. The combat was fun and design wasn't bad at all.

      Despite its age, nice details and well designed. Way how blue key is hidden is really clever. But map is dark and cramped. Enemies are only imps and hitscanners.

      Pretty good map in E1 base style (except Doom2 monsters) Nice design but there some texture alignment issues.

      Despite the browns and grays that are prominent in this megaWAD, I found it to be fun. I also found it to be quite the challenge. The first map gives you a taste of what to expect in terms of enemy encounters. The author makes good use of mid-tier enemies to apply pressure on the player. Monster count for most of the maps barely breaks the 150 mark but, as said before, the use of mostly mid-tier enemies puts pressure on the player. I also like how the megaWAD handles level progression. Most of the levels you go through consist of caves, cities, islands, and tech bases in space. In fact, there's only one real Hell-like level and even it's within the confines of the moon base you fight through in maps 21 - 30.   About the only gripes I have with this megaWAD are with regards to maps 32, 29, and 30. I know the text file and map 31 give warnings about map 32 but there really should be some kind of alternate exit in map 32 instead of trapping you in place if you don't pass one of the puzzles. I wasn't a fan of how close quarters the IoS fight was in map 29, especially since it can get cramped quickly with monster spawns. Finally, the randomization of what keys spawn during your escape in map 30 isn't fun either. 10 minutes seems like plenty of time but between navigating the vent system (again) without light goggles and dealing with mid-tier enemies, that 10 minutes can get eaten up really quick.   Overall, it's still a fun megaWAD. I'd recommend at least giving it a shot.
