About This File

This is a large open area map. If you have an older comp., it may get jerky. It will speed up after you kill off the first wave, at least it did on my 486. I will NOT make a WAD with open areas like this one again....Too BIG! BUT, it's worth a look at.

Nice map, but not very good.

Lots of work, but simple architecture and hopelessly primitive and boring gameplay. Overall despite a few technical skills shown, clearly below the average 1998 map, so 2*. BTW 5* legendary? C'mon, please be realistic, it hasn't much value compared with Eternall DooM or alike 1998 real toppers...

This starts off with a mass of health and ammo, which is normally a bad sign, but in this case it's not. There are only 169 monsters, but they're mostly toughies. The map is a large canyon with some castles in it; the design is simple but feels solid, and the monsters come at you in a big mass. Against it, the "moat" is irritating and you have a huge amount of rockets - you can solve most of the level by just lobbing rockets all over the place.

A huge outdoorsy map with a big castle and some water (that doesn't really work). It's sprawling and I'm a little awestruck that it was made with a 486. Generally there's no problem working out where to go, although I ended up running out of shotgun shells at one point, and blasted an onrushing lost soul with a rocket launcher, which was a bad mistake. Very, very good map.

      This is the first non-Euclidean doom wad I've ever seen! And it's done right! That must've been some project. Well done.

      *** PLUTONIA 3 - GOING TO THE SURFACE Review ***   I usually start off my reviews with "The Bad," followed by "The Good." This one is going to have "The Ugly." Ready?   The Good:   - Not a thing.   The Bad:   - Everything. For a more detailed reason, see TurrboAnklet's and/or GuyNamedErick's review (both below). I agree with 110% of every word written in both.   The Ugly:   - Duke Nukem music? Really?!?!?! - BFG9000 in second level. And enough plasma cells to virtually destroy the universe including any parallel ones.   **************************************************************************   In Short: I saw the PLUTONIA name, and I got fairly excited to play it. But, that's the gimmick here, isn't it? Reel you in with the name and then you open Pandora's Box. Freeware or not.   I played a few levels from start, then I IDCLEV'ed to a couple teen-numbered levels, then to mid- to later-twenty numbered levels to see if there was hope in the future for any chance of fun. Nope. It's as much fun as eating a generic-branded box of Mac & Cheese - with the box missing the cheese.   I am required to give this WAD at least 1 star else I can't post a review. So, for that reason ONLY, this "WAD" gets a star. There is no freaking way this took 3 years to build. I would believe it more, if it were 3 minutes. This clusterf*ck not only tarnishes the great PLUTONIA name, it insults the entire DooM universe.   Soooo not recommended. 0 out 5 stars.

      Gameplay is just okay, nothing especially interesting. But the level's theme and textures are pretty damn funny. Everywhere you look there's another little joke. It's worth playing just for amusement. I don't know what the hell these commenters are talking about regarding a "creepy atmosphere", IMO you'd have to be a pretty big weenie to get scared by a Doom level full of joke textures just because its a little dark...

      Very cool level. The way you have to use your fist & pistol in the beginning enhances the feeling of being trapped & powerless and having to escape. The visuals are very nicely-done, with lots of little details & cool ideas. The atmosphere is quite spooky, reminding me of the dungeon segments of the later Unloved. It is indeed linear, but it's still an interesting journey and the gameplay is fair & fun.

      Nice layout. There are actually some challenging moments with monsters attacking from every direction, especially if you try to rush it. The visuals are basic but stylish and might remind you of early Grain of Salt levels (see Green Goddess).
