Nothing amazing or surprising but it does what 95% of maps here fail to do - be entertaining and enjoyable to play. In that regard it is a superb 5.

Pretty good, just a tad easy, though this means that they can be more fun at difficulties higher than UV. 4/5

This episode had a lot of potential, but falls short because of imbalanced game play and bugs. With proper playtesting, this pack could have been far better. Ammo is sparse in some places, while other parts have stockpiles that are not needed. As others have mentioned, monsters are placed kind of sporadically. The architecture is good in some of the large areas, but the hallways look very plain. 3/5

A good little eight-map episode. The maps could perhaps so with a few more monsters and a bit less ammo, but it's fun to play. I found one place in E4M7 where it seems possible to get stuck.

It's shorter to repeat the first comment than it is to type "The first comment sums it up perfectly"!

Some very good maps (E4M2, E4M5) but also some pretty meh ones (E4M3). On the whole I found it good shtick though. **** -sargebaldy

      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
