About This File

Area 51, The militarys not so top secret base in Nevada, rumored to be the high tech research center and holding area for aliens, has cut off communications with unnamed high ranking officials in Washington DC.
We are sending you in alone to investigate armed with latest technology. You will have a security pass bio-chip inserted under your skin so you can enter all tightly controlled ultra secure areas. The bio-chip will allow you to get through the bio- scanners without tripping the alarm. However, If it is damaged or exposed to high levels of radiation it may not work. Also, It is untested on the gene scanner under construction there. Try to aviod this area if possible. If you trip an alarm try and find an escape route pronto. It is possible the compound houses a UFO. This may be your only means of escape once you enter AREA 51!

A great and classic WAD from '97, I love that It takes place on a Science Fiction like enviorment. Though, the difficulty Is pretty rough around the edges, but other then that, It's a spot on WAD that You'll have fun with. 5/5.

Legendary WAD, one of my favorites as a child. I think this was the first time I had seen custom grahpics in Doom and I was blown away. It's still great fun today.

Outstanding. Good work on the graphics, unique atmosphere/appearance, and the gameplay bounces along nicely. Not at all easy (on UV) but it's quite feasible to play all the way through without using saves. The ammo supply is quite generous, but not absurdly so.

A pretty cool classic mod. This was one I played years ago... never could quite finish it because I wasn't great playing and it is slightly difficult... well not that difficult by modern level standards. I still recommend it. It's a good play. Seems like there could be more added to it. 4/5.

Icarus-style, but only two maps, quite big. Notable for cacodemon sprite replacement (also WolfSS sprite replacement, but this one sucks). Cool layout, pretty good effort overall. 4/5 stars, vdgg

A 90s science fiction wad made with love and care. Secret military bases, aliens, explosions, Billy Idol... And it's from the guys that were a part of the Squadron 417 team. 18 stars.

      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.

      If it were renamed "Garbage Dump," I would have given it a better rating.

      A large, but not very prolong map, which is interesting to explore. I liked the author's strategy to place strong weapons in well-protected places. To get them the player need to pass a kind of test. The difficulty depends on the player's luck. It is important not to miss the shotgun at the very beginning, otherwise entangled corridors can lead the player to a situation in which he will be easy prey, left without ammo. Visually, the map looks neat, another good example of using standard textures.
