At the begining of the level i realy thought: this must be a deathmach map but after i open the door the level begin to get interesting the level design is very nice and very creative. but it like you want to visit the good guys from hel (the monsters)to go to they home and kick thar asses For me this is a nice level!! 4 stars!!!

Pretty good for the time period in which it was released. The lighting is pretty well done and doesn't feel overly "noobish" when compared to today's standards. 4/5

Canyon with nice looking bloodfalls. The sewers with the atmospheric lighting look awesome! If this map was bigger, had more detail and challenge, it'd be a sure five stars. -- 4/5

I like the canyon, pretty cool, but the rest lacks a little. The ending is neat though.

Not bad, although a bit of a period piece. Like a lot of these early large-scale levels it's very barren - the canyon is a disappointment - although the sewers are quite nice and the lighting is subtle but decent. It's definitely on the evolutionary path towards the detailed, atmospheric levels of today. There were plenty of better maps from before mid-1996 though and 3/5 is generous.

Simple, almost bare design. Almost, because ascetic design is balanced with cool fake lightsourcing and nice choice of textures. Apart of underdetailing, map is pretty diverse, has some canyon, nice bloodfalls, castle part and sewers. It's too easy, though - monsters are few and they friendly wave to you (almost) -- Brun Ohn

What the hell? I didn't need the red key or have to explore at all, it was just a straight shot and I'm done. Boring.

Atmospheric, but felt very linear. Brought back some good old doom memories though.

      When first reading this wad's description I thought this will be a 1994 style map, where someone just tried to recreate his office building to shoot up his colleages. Boy, was I wrong!   Going Down emerged as one of my favourite megawads so far, with its very clever use of small to medium map space and interesting gameplay mechanics in every single map. The first couple of maps start innocent enough, but soon you will find yourself navigating literal crawl spaces, thinking about use of space and / or slight puzzle mechanics just before being thrown into hell itself and fighting for your life. Going Down is designed as a literal descent into hell, which was the most beautifully realized aspect of it. How every map slightly changes into a more and more hellish theme is just great, great design work. Even though the later maps delve into slaughter territory I must admit that I still quite enjoyed it. Actually this was the first time I enjoyed being slaugthered and figuring out how to approach the map.   Going Down is simply an amazing piece of work, oozing quality from start to finish and rewarding the player with incredible elevator music inbetween. A must play.

      Such a wonderful creation! I really wish there were some more maps so this could make it into ZDaemon Thursday Night Survival (TNS) someday...

      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.
