About This File

Before you even start the game, look at the text file MISSION.TXT. That will give you your mission objectives. I suggest you PRINT that text file. That file is very important in the episode I made you, it can also make sure you know what to look for. It is not a cheat map or something like cheating, it was made for a sort of briefing. No mistake, its still going to be your Doom!!!

My favorites list: 10, 11, 12 and 23. Lots of city maps (I don't like them), or inspired by renowned ones.

This megawad has a good gameplay flow, made of many small levels, but like most single-person megawads, suffers from repetition. From halfway onwards, the levels start to look like homages to commercially-made maps. And later on, a few maps are based on missions from Star Wars: Dark Forces, and possibly from other games. The gameplay retains author's style. Overall it leans on the easy side, with too many bonuses making the job easy.

 

Some warnings:

  1. MAP05 seems broken. At some point you can't operate a lift to get back. The only escape is idclip (sorry if you're playing on nightmare).
  2. Couldn't harm the final boss.

Nice megawad, didn't notice it was from 1996, looks nice tho, nice map design, architecture and textures.  The only thing that really annoyed me was the switches puzzles on map30 and I couldn't finish that map, I shot everything I had to the "Reactor" (nice way to replace the Icon of Sin), but nothing happened (I played this megawad with Æons of Death 6.66)  it looked like the "Icon of Sin" Reactor was closed/blocked by a wall, I had to use noclip to defeat the Icon of Sin

If you don't like nostalgia, forget about it. Otherwise - quite funny and quite detailed for its time...

Pretty avarage for a 90's megawad, lots of lengthy backtracking and the switch puzzles in MAP30 were absolutely horrible.

an alright megawad. don't expect anything amazing, but if you want old skool fun, play it. a few technical mishaps like getting stuck in MAP05 plus a few HOMs and a monster outside the playing area.

For a Wad dated from 96 this is actually pretty good for its time, none linear lvls with a good attempt of detailing, and challenging gameplay in the later maps, it has a few oversights like getting stuck in some parts where you have to noclip, or a big HOM in map26, the only thing i didn't like imo is that the lvl's are way too overstocked in ammo and health, so its a 4/5 from me. -Archy-

Excellent stuff. Classic maps that wouldn't feel out of place alongside the originals.

fun megawad, except buggy map05 and 22 and a couple other bugs (you have to noclip), but nice fun

Certainly one of the "forgotten" new wads; I agree that it is not "epic", but it is well worth a try and the quality starts off acceptable and gets pretty good by the end.

This is from August '96. It dates from a time when you could fit a Megawad on a single floppy. I admit I've only played the first dozen levels, but it's actually good fun; you can run through it blasting everything with the double shotgun, and although the design is simple it's not offensive. It's easy to get stuck in Map05 if you activate the soul sphere secret, though. Gets harder from about Map09 onwards. Map08 is tedious, but the rest is fast-moving.

another doom2, some of the maps were pretty cool. nothing new in terms of textures, music and sounds, some nice ideas here and there (map23 was really good looking besides of that fucking red sky), but overall this is nothing epic. 3/5 give it a try

      It took me several tries to unwrap the map but I really enjoyed it. J Flynn still amazes me. A tricky great map.

      This map is beautiful to look at and amazing to play. It reminds me of a something I'd see from a map in the late 90s and I love it.

      I'm breaking up with Valiant to start my new love with Hellbound. Best DOOM mapset that has been made. I have replayed it more than once with Brutal DOOM Platinum and Final Doomer(Hellboundguy class) and I still can't get tired of it. Cities, hellish maps, tech bases, I just love it. I also really like the combination of E2M1, E2M2 and E2M3 in Map19. Amazing stuff right there, I strongly recommend this

      I forgot to review it when I first finished it, but I played it again with final doomer so I think it's time.   Ancient aliens is beautiful, and it plays as well as it looks.  SkillSaw gives some of his best maps in his career, only matched by his heartland performance.  But the heavy lifting is really done by the presentation, stewboys midis always fit, and the fact the soundtrack is bespoke is incredible.  I personally enjoy all of the maps, only the secret maps have any issues fitting in, and secret maps are allowed to not be great.  My only issue with the wad are the inconsistent 3rd episode, and ironically it's skillsaw's work in that episode that is probably the worst (So good, but not as good as the earlier work in the wad) as the rest of the team turns in great work.

      Valiant was hyped up in my mind as a future favorite megawad, Often proclaimed as the best megawad by many.   But it is imperfect. 1. The Super chaingun is lame, not a fan, it want's to be the ultimate weapon, but it is never set up to be powerful, most enemies are too tough too be taken down by it without justifying use of a better weapon, and moments where cannonfodder are plentiful enough to justify it are too rare.  Most importantly chaingun sniping is limited, I almost wish for a regular chaingun because its ability to pick off enemies from a distance was that valuable for me.  The pistol isn't a good replacement for it, so a gap is left to pursue an overlap in the arsenal.  The custom enemies are fun all of them are great.    2. The maps are divided into episodes Ep1 - Earth tech base that is fun Ep2 - Waste episode that is ok I think for 2 or 3 maps but starts to suck later Ep3 - The Darkwave episode Ep4 - Hell that is hell to play Ep5 - Lunatic reloaded (I liked lunatic so it's fun)   The aggressive red and orange maps just unfortunately suck sometimes.  The maps aren't bad but annoying and it feels like they suck out the fun.  The other 3 episodes are fun most of the time but are imperfect.  I love custom monsters and weapons so I had that to look forward too every map, but the wad just isn't fun sometimes.   3.  Maps are detailed, but I personally enjoy vanilla maps so it doesn't appeal to me in that regard.  But In theory you wouldn't notice it because of the speed of play, the best valiant maps would be hard to recreate from memory because they would force the player to go fast.  But that also clashes with Skillsaws love of map 24 the Chasm, I wanted to idclip so many times because I fell off a thin ledge or didn't do the platforming section as well, I didn't but the restraint required was immeasurable.   4.  The aracnorb, cool in theory but combined with high ceilings made me want to hang myself, thankfully Skillsaw made the ceiling so high I can't hang myself from it because there isn't a ladder long enough.   5. I don't have a 5th point but I like the number 5 so I felt disgusting not having a 5th point.   To conclude, Valiant is fine and most of the enemies are cool but it has issues, play at your own risk.
