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.

      Download the REAL file here (rd1.zip is NOT correct) https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/levels/doom2/megawads/d64d2   Shocked to see so many negative reviews. I had an absolute blast with this one, and I'm not sure what Nems was talking about with the Boom stuff as this runs in Doom2.exe with no trouble. In fact, there is a TON of impressive vanilla stuff going on here. I guess it was so well done that it tricked him.   This deserves a high score. It's a lot of fun.

      It definitely makes Doom look darker, but also slightly changes colors (it reminds me PSX Doom). I prefer original Doom colors and miss how it looked on CRT (almost same colors as with modern monitors, but less brightness and maybe more contrast).

      Great spirit/item placements, and also nice trap placements. Textures are georgeous and scream "1980's sci-fi action movie".

      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
