When a few levels of DEMO PLACES are cool, and this is supposed to be a TC with everything being new, you know you have to come back. @Mordeth I pray you will one day finish off this project and your Eternity Engine projects to the best of your ability.

I actually used this files MORDETHfb97-dsf but its the same wad with lumps properly organized. 

 

Simply... WOW!!!

 

Love it from start!

I really like exploratory maps with clever puzzles and secrets and pretty good encounters.

The maps are neat, detailed, have a really good atmosphere and great architecture. The resources are used in a way that one can't ignore; its just really organic and nothing standouts as unfitting. Perfect texture work, indeed. (Don't know why, but while playing it, Suspended in Dusk by Espi comes to my mind... maybe some of the texture usage remind me of that amazing work).
The dehacked monsters are good and interesting alternatives.
I love the fog effect and how it dissapeard when you are near and then appeard again when you look at it from afar.

If this was the demo, and after seeing some juicy screenshots, i just can drool dreaming about this long awaited mapset finally being released.



Thanks MORDETH for this demo, its something really inspiring.
I doesn't care to wait another twenty years to finally play the complete version ;)

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.

      Quite a fun set of maps, that has some small problems...   You often get caught on geometry as things are a little bit too detailed.   I still had fun, though.   3/5

      Each of the levels look good but this comes to the detriment of gameplay. Over detailing in Doom tends to cause minor pieces of geometry the player can get stuck in which I would consider to be a critical flaw in any deathmatch wad. Detailing aside layouts are too symmetrical while oddly suffering being both too claustrophobic and too open. This wad is a good example for deathmatch mappers of why detailing needs to be sparse.

      Neither bad nor amazing. Giving it 4 stars because I actually enjoyed it

      Cute, awesome and quite solid! Little map with a lot to pack. Would love to see a megawad or episode mapset in this style
