While there are a couple decent maps, its generally pretty mediocre. You wouldn't be missing out on anything by skipping it.

You can get stuck on some maps, and there are some missing textures... Even for 1997 this is kinda bad. Playable somewhat, but overall not worth it.

mediocre but I found it to be a lot of fun. BPSND seems to crash GZDoom though, so I played without it.

Level one is a bare symmetrical thing with misaligned teleport pad textures (in 1997!). Level two is more of the same, bare rooms joined with L-shaped corridors. Level fifteen is "Demon's Feast" (id=14173) which is decent. Levels 30, 31, and 32 are unexciting. Level 20 is just a big racetrack that I ran through in about a minute; level 21 is better. The best levels from this megawad would have made a tolerable Doom episode circa early 1995, but in 2006 it's deadly dull.

I agree with the reviews above. Very plain and boring maps. I just checked them all out. I didn't have nerves to play through after a few maps so I deleted it. The authors should have spent more time with the maps themselves than trying to make up to 32 maps as quickly as possible. I'd rather play 5 good maps than 32 of such mediocre quallity. 2 stars from me, sorry!

I recall playing this wad many years ago and I thought it was pretty average in all ways, a few good levels but many average ones. 2 Stars -PC

Has great atmosphere when used with OpenGL lighting and brightmaps that probably didn't exist when it was made. Squarish and symmetrical maps overall, but trolls should try to keep in mind the year that this was made. Maps would be good for introducing new players to the game. Good for a WAD dated 1997.

Plenty of good maps once you get into it.

The pir team released 3 megawads, the last one in 2006 (Parker is the only author of that) but it's not available here. According to the textfile of pir2 he's going to make a 4th one. I idcleved through the whole set and I had the impression that the levels start getting acceptable from level 14. coldfusio default rating cause I didn't play it and from the looks I think there's much better to play.

Well this wad was made in 1997, so it was probably considered good for its time. 3 stars

Oh the boredom. I don't think I throughly enjoyed
a single one of these levels.

      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

      A pretty straightforward map to run through, packing in tons of enemies in rooms both big and small. Most of the monsters you'll be killing are E1 monsters such as Zombiemen and Imps, so while there isn't much in monster variety, there are plenty of ways to get them to fight each other which I like. It might be better to try and get as many monsters to start attacking at the same time since once you get the Chaingun, not even the groups of Spectres are much of a threat. Overall though, the map is still fun to blast through if you just want to kill tons of monsters in packs.

      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.
