If you're looking for varied visuals, this isn't for you, but it's pretty great if you're in the mood for some exploration and key hunts. Some levels could use a better song than the stock iwad tunes. Minor touches, like new monsters or fog that moves around, are cool.

Pretty good for it's time, despite being unfinished. Still worth playing for the gameplay which is good. Make sure you load both wads and the deh.

Yeah...it's never really going to be finished, despite whatever jokes are circulating, sad. :( But that doesn't mean you should deprive yourself of one of the most impressive episodes of the era. Six well designed levels, each has plenty of thought put into it, they're all fun to play, and they all stick to that cohesive brown medieval theme. So just load just all the wad files and the deh with a modern source port, and have some fun with what actually was done!

I will tell you a secret. There is no such project as Mordeth anymore. It's a running joke. Yes, there was a plan to make a sequel but it's long-forgotten now.

I refuse to play this anymore since the author is taking FAR too long to finish his stuff.

Very good WAD. Finally played it in 2015. Still no sequel. Bummer.

Those complaining about "hanging corpses" should perhaps consider to actually install this add-on properly. The original WAD is not compatible with source ports. Either read the installation notes, or download the alternative archive (mfb97dsf.zip, available from Mordeth TC site) which can be played with a source port.

I can't wait for the full version. With all I've read on the site, like It will have many authors, this 1st episode (which already kicks major ass) will be greatly revised, it will have extreme detail, architecture, massive levels, theming, is intended to give a whole set of WORLDS to explore, some maps in hubs, moving vehicled, kickass GP, and tons of other port enhancements, it sure sounds to may like it may be the ALL TIME BEST WAD, and maybe that BY FAR aswell!!!

This is a pretty fun wad with good design. To anyone who has trouble with getting the wad with special effects just download the 97 version.

An excellent project. Absolutely NO reason not to play unless you believe that Mordeth will actually be finished. I don't. And even if it does someday get released, you might as well play this anyway, because you'll probably remember next to nothing about these maps by the time it does - even if you have a good memory. Time will tell. 5/5 -Brandon D. Lade

It's good, but is someone willing to explain me why is this considered to be a TOTAL CONVERSION?! I mean total conversions are wads like hell to play... not this one.

Barely above average wad. Hanging corpses impede movement and are annoying with enemies present. Level design is good, with interesting atmosphere and gameplay. Short, so try if you only want to commit a little time. Sunglasses on Sarge look cheesy. 3/5

Pretty darn good set of levels in medieval city style, with lots to explore. Superb dehacked work. m01 is a bit bland and boring. m07 sucks.

      Some very cool techbases with a nice texture set and pallette.  The music is pretty epic.  And it all runs in vanilla! (Or so it is said, I played it in GZDoom)

      I honestly can't believe that this whole megawad is 100% vanilla compatible and its only the first of THREE episodic megawads! Esselfortium and her team of creative energetic mappers has done an amazing job from the unique texture set, the music, the maps & even the tweaked color palette that fits the mood of the whole thing.    100% highly recommended! 5/5

      A pretty straightforward map to run through, packing in tons of enemies in rooms both big and small. Most of the monsters you'll be killing are E1 monsters such as Zombiemen and Imps, so while there isn't much in monster variety, there are plenty of ways to get them to fight each other which I like. It might be better to try and get as many monsters to start attacking at the same time since once you get the Chaingun, not even the groups of Spectres are much of a threat. Overall though, the map is still fun to blast through if you just want to kill tons of monsters in packs.

      this is a strange wad, with assets similar to Darkest Hour and other Star Wars-themed wads, many of the maps focus on small killings, as most of the maps are actually small. Pinchy's finale sure makes this worth it. oh yeah, quite a few custom stuff was done. the flamethrower marines were quite annoying, while other monsters gained multiple attacks, new ones, it's all so zany. the maps are pretty well done overall and this is worth a try.

      Okay, I get it, it's a megawad mainly for speedrunners who are intricately familiar with the mechanics of the game down to the nitty-gritty. A series of challenges/obstacles that, for the most part, seem to be possible but are generally ludicrous (and sometimes outright laughable, in a good way).   This was is not a "pile of junk" as a few have said however it's really, really lacking in a lot of ways. I get that the wad is meant to have a fun-and-not-serious tone despite it's overall extreme difficulty but the texturing looks like the insides of a toilet bowl after a Taco Bell buffet. Seriously, these maps are jealous of how beautiful and futuristic maps like UAC_DEAD look. The DWANGO series looks like fucking Ancient Aliens compared to this.   The MIDIs are lighthearted, silly and fun, which adds a layer of appeal for me personally. I loved seeing Patrick Stewart at the intermission too, rofl   I had some fun with this IDCLEVing through the whole wad and giving each map a try or 2 before moving on to the next but I seriously doubt I'll ever be back. The same idea with better texturing and overall taking itself just a tiny bit more seriously would warrant a higher rating. Ass-ugly texturing, silly MIDIs and a silly titlepic/interpic are fun in their own right so don't take me the wrong way but a lot of it crossed into "looks like the authors gave 0 fucks" category and I just have to take points away for that.   Also,   lol wtf is this bullshit is this a terrywad or somethin i mean jeeeezus   Overall, this is worth a peek just for some fun but unless you're a highly skilled speedrunner that also doesn't mind looking into a crapchute map after map, this probably doesn't really have much for you.
