Primitive and bare like the rest of this author's output. The interactive elements are limited almost entirely to doors and a few switches. The only noteworthy map is E1M2, a large mazy complex with a couple of interesting bits. If you decide to try it you'll need to play E1M1 first for the weapons and ammo, otherwise E1M2 would be too tedious. The last map is a tiny afterthought with neither weapons nor exit.

At first, I thought it was pretty bad, but it sort of grew on me as I played through. It's got that '94 flavour, to be sure, with rather bland, although fairly competent structure, and the item placement is a bit weird (first level gives you massive amounts of ammo & supplies, then you don't get very much later on.) This relates to the story but for gameplay it feels odd. You'll be wanting that ammo later on. The only map which relates to the title is the "bonus" E1M4.

Elton John. The four wads are packed separately; there's also a sound replacement wad. Level four is shaped like a sperm. Level one is blah; level two resembles a "workplace" level, with lots of small rooms and corridors with regularly-spaced doors; it's the most fully-developed map. Level three is a repeat of level one, but you start at the end. There are different monsters and no weapons. This is below-par even for 1994.

      Why the hell have I not been using this. Incredible, 5 stars.

      It was difficult for me, but I enjoyed it, a few more ammo pick ups and maybe some health too, but other than that it's a good level.

      I should've heeded the warnings from the other reviews...

      Horrible and unenjoyable, it's what I can say about this megawad.  Does it really need to be archviles and cyberdemons in every corner and tight corridors, ambushing with nowhere to go?  Yes, textures are very monotonous, and you got corridor after corridor with same floor/ceiling height.  It's extremely annoying to hunt for that switch that will let you continue, and, surprise!  They're hidden inside the walls without being secrets and no hints where to look for, even with ALLMAP cheat you get lost very easily

      Not quite as bad as some other comments said, for an old wad anyway. Playable but easy at UV. Some poor texture alignments, nearly all brightly lit, no atmosphere. New sounds are mostly cranky but I liked the machine gun. The voice sounds the same as in "Wild West Of The North" - WEST.WAD which was by Mike Lasota and which also has cranky (but different again) sounds.
