Still as good as I remember. Very creative layouts, particularly toward the end. And David Shaw music is always welcome of course.

This is a good wad. It's a shame that some people put such idiotic comments in the review window.

Many levels have a lot of predictable symmetry, they tend to play rather blandly except for some traps that can be nasty (like being teleported between two chaingun guys you can't see, one to each side right next to you), so the "flow" is not balanced properly. Their authors may be involved, but it's beneath Requiem and the MMs in quality. [3/5] ~Chain Mail (08/2011)

Insertion is like a forgotten follow-up to Requiem and Memento Mori 2. While it doesn't have the textures and effects, it still has the amazing gameplay that made those wads great. This should've been in the Top 100 list, maybe in place of Earth (which was from '97 anyway) 4.5/5

^Agree, it's a top ten 1998 release for sure. Much better than Earth for gameplay/design purposes. The name here is wrong though...because the text file's in slightly the wrong format. But it doesn't hurt the actual wad.

Created by mappers/musicians involved in MM2/Requiem. Take Requiem, forget about Adel and Iikka maps, you'll get Insertion - a solid WAD with medium difficulty, old school feel (those rising sectors, slow lifts, ledges, medium-to-low detail etc.) Highly recommended for maps 5-7 alone (by Thomas Evans). 4/5 stars, vdgg

      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.
