About This File

These are a set of reviews for single play of all the new levels for Doom 1 on ftp.cdrom.com beginning with the numbers 0-9 or with the letters A-B.

I am aiming to review all the levels on ftp.cdrom.com. I have released those that I have done so far mainly so people can comment, and perhaps reveal any problems with the reviews.

The reviews are all in HTML. I am no expert, but most of the stuff should work with any browser. I know it works with Internet Explorer 3.0.

The reviews come are in two ZIP files, which should hopefully be somewhere near this TXT file. These are:

D1REV0B.ZIP - The reviews themselves. This is all you need to see the reviews. Approx 131Kb.

D1REV0BG.ZIP - Some screenshots of some of the better levels. If you download these, they appear beside the reviews, to give a real feel to some of the levels. You don't need these. Approx 615Kb. You have to download a copy of D1REV0B.ZIP to get the reviews themselves.

      Pretty good. The combat was fun and design wasn't bad at all.

      Despite its age, nice details and well designed. Way how blue key is hidden is really clever. But map is dark and cramped. Enemies are only imps and hitscanners.

      Pretty good map in E1 base style (except Doom2 monsters) Nice design but there some texture alignment issues.

      Despite the browns and grays that are prominent in this megaWAD, I found it to be fun. I also found it to be quite the challenge. The first map gives you a taste of what to expect in terms of enemy encounters. The author makes good use of mid-tier enemies to apply pressure on the player. Monster count for most of the maps barely breaks the 150 mark but, as said before, the use of mostly mid-tier enemies puts pressure on the player. I also like how the megaWAD handles level progression. Most of the levels you go through consist of caves, cities, islands, and tech bases in space. In fact, there's only one real Hell-like level and even it's within the confines of the moon base you fight through in maps 21 - 30.   About the only gripes I have with this megaWAD are with regards to maps 32, 29, and 30. I know the text file and map 31 give warnings about map 32 but there really should be some kind of alternate exit in map 32 instead of trapping you in place if you don't pass one of the puzzles. I wasn't a fan of how close quarters the IoS fight was in map 29, especially since it can get cramped quickly with monster spawns. Finally, the randomization of what keys spawn during your escape in map 30 isn't fun either. 10 minutes seems like plenty of time but between navigating the vent system (again) without light goggles and dealing with mid-tier enemies, that 10 minutes can get eaten up really quick.   Overall, it's still a fun megaWAD. I'd recommend at least giving it a shot.
