A huge single-level WAD with a canyon, an underground complex and some sewers. Lots of spectacular scenery and intricate lighting...

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.

      Wow, this is a stellar example of what a Doom wad should be.   I'll start out by saying it's not easy in any sense of the word- I recommend hurt me plenty, and I never do that, lol. Ultraviolence is almost too hard in my opinion, and I'm like a blood-drinking Doom veteran, so you might want to take my word for it. It's the kind of maps where anytime you find a major switch, all hell breaks loose all around you. Lots of cacodemons, lots of spectres, and big groups of imps. There's also a lot of nukage, but don't be too intimidated, a lot of it is just short lengths you can run.   The map design, the music choices, the gameplay? Fantastic. Very well balanced items, and not too easy either. We're talking pretty much Doom 2 amounts of monsters if not more, but in Ultimate Doom, which is also a cool aspect. There aren't very many Ultimate Doom wads these days, and I appreciate the enemies of the first game a bit more than I do Doom 2.   In the end? Very tasteful. This is one of my favorite wads, I think.

      Really good Episode for Ultimate Doom.   The maps are puzzle-ish and maze-ish and cramped, also sometimes tight on ammo. But the layouts are really fun and entertaining. Maybe adjusting sector light could have been better, but anyway, this is a good mapset with neat details and a good story, too. I played this episode along this dehacked patch, that comes really handy to know what is happening at the end.   I hope Cleimos 2, the conclusion to this story, follows the same entertaining approach like this one. Thanks Rand & Steven Phares for this complete episode for U.Doom

      Morbus seems to be the best planet to go on vacation... Well, at least if you like living a nightmare!   Fun little atmospheric mapset, really dark and with interesting gameplay choices, like extremely tall elevators, big dark open areas, switch hunting and more. Just my cup of tea!   And even if planet morbus is silly, it is a hell of fun!
      One of the first wads i ever played, no clue i still love it... even with all the let downs!

      Pretty long maps and there are some real stinkers in there like map 19. But overall, its fun even though it can get frustrating at times.

      A fun, non-linear base level somewhat on the easy side but still worth playing and has good replayability.
