Big boring maze without map. Maybe it was worth a try on 1997 but not today. If you still want to go for it, there's a repackaged version to avoid the tedious installation: https://www.doomworl d.com/idgames/levels /doom/p-r/quest12

A terrible early TC, even if you do get it working. The custom installer works only with Doom v1.666, while using the WAD files directly with modern source ports will bork them, as they are heavily malformed. I will soon release a cleaned and up-to-date, v1.9 compatible version. Consider it an early jokewad, if anything. 1/5 -Maes

If you can't get it working, then you can't see whether it's good or bad. You'll need to convert the binary dehacked patch into a plain-text one if you wish to play it using a port.

Every map is an exercise in how to make something even more annoying than the last. Fortunately, though, the second map pretty much takes the cake in that regard, so it doesn't take long to get an idea how bad this is: it's a gargantuan maze with literally no distinguishing features to aid navigation, with the entire thing hidden from the automap. Oh, right, there's also unmarked secrets, mandatory pitch-black segments, fake walls, and invisible blocking walls. Whoever made this wad is a total dick.

      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.

      A few really good maps supported by a bunch of alright ones. Visuals are mostly Plutonia-inspired, with the occasional veering into Shores of Hell type mish-mash architecture. Difficulty is about on par with DOOM2.wad I think. Overall, a rather pedestrian affair, although the standout maps are certainly worth the time.

      BACK TO SATURN X E1: GET OUT OF MY STATIONS REVIEW:   The Good:   - Stunning visuals   - Great monster placement   - Lots of (clever) secrets and they are rewarding   - Enough ammo to keep you going   - The names of the Maps LOL!   - Loads of fun   - Awesome music!   The Bad:   - Not long enough. LOL! I loved it so much, I didn't want it to end!   In Short: I've actually played this fantastic WAD at least 6 or 7 times. Why? This is my second favorite WAD of all time, only bested by its successor, BTSX Episode 2: Fountain of Sparks. I remember the very first time I played it a couple of years ago like it was yesterday. How many times can you say that (in a good way) about a game?   I remember being completely blown away by the architectural designs at the time. I even remember giggling as I sunk in the ocean on the final Map, only to read something like "To Be Continued..." and thinking, "Awww....it's over." But I admit that, like everyone else, I had loads of fun with this.    There is lack of a "customary" final boss (I wasn't certain if this was a "Good" or "Bad" element of the game, hence why it's in neither category above - it really will depend on the player so I kept it neutral). But don't let that deter you! The final "stage" in the last (playable) Map is as memorable as it is wicked, and it'll keep you on your toes just like any other customary boss!   Play this WAD if it's the only WAD you ever play. Definite replay value.   Well deserved Cacoward. Thanks, Team, for making it!   5 out of 5 stars with me.  ~ dylux
