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.

One third is good, rest is utter shit. Worth playing: 03, 05, 07, 10, 12, 15, 19, 21 (by Cary Maucere) 23, 25, 27 (by Jeffrey Martin). m27 especially funny with fastmonsters. /hth

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.

      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
