About This File

Quite similar to the theme of most Ultimate DOOM E4 levels. As always loads of cool lighting, traps and state-of-the-art architecture. This is my finest piece of DOOM level art to date, without a doubt. HOWEVER, this is a linear level. Sorry all lovers of non-linear maps out there, but you might just enjoy it anyway. This is a HARD level. Hard and big. You'll probably want to save quite a lot, and this is the kind of level you only play once I think. A bit like the Eternal levels, but perhaps not quite as enormous. VERY detailed though.

Great map. Gameplay is challenging but fun (played in UV), the map has good architecture, and although texturing is bland in some places, it is varied enough to remain interesting throughout the level. There's plenty of ammo with little space to move around in. Item placement is good overall, but the last room can be a little cruel since there's no health beforehand. This is worth your time if you like good action in tight spaces. 4/5 -Reckoner

Annoying gameplay, forces you to learn where essential powerups are by trial-and-error. First big trap puts you against 2 revenants and a ton of demons/imps with nowhere to run or hide behind, you have to go straight for an invunerability sphere hidden in the corner so you don't die. Later on you have to run past a bunch of hell knights to get at a rocket launcher or you'll just run out of ammo trying to kill them all.

Indeed excellent, tremendous battles especially if storm ahead and take some risks. Putting you in battles with fairly limited in fact just enough space to fight and the rather small size of the level (still 180 or so ennemies) makes this a great concentration trip. A player's dream

Symmetry and repetition rule this map but the gameplay is pretty decent, some good traps.

Awesome map, fairly difficult and looks nice. Gameplay is really fun, lots of good mechanics. I honestly really, really enjoyed this wad, I highly recommend it. I can imagine that if you didn't find the invulnerability in the first trap for a while it'd be annoying. Overall 5/5 from me.

Awesome single level wad. The only thing that
annoyed me was that dumb jump to hit one of the
switches.

I dunno what that other guy is talking about, I can't remember how I got the rocket launcher, but I didn't feel like I HAD to grab it. Great traps, great fights, especially the bit with the teleporting chaingunners

      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.
