What the hell is this? Phil Collins ain't all that bad, but his music isn't meant for Doom at all... And this was made in 1998, it has no excuse!

I'm more of a Huey Lewis and the News fan myself. Their early work was a little too new wave for my tastes, but when "Sports" came out in 83, I think they really came into their own, commercial and artistically. Phil Collins' solo career seems to be more commercial and therefore more satisfying, in a narrower way, but I think he works best within the confines of a group, rather than as a solo artist, and I stress the word artist.

The people who vote negatively on this wad simply have no taste in music and probably have never gotten a table at Dorsia. Although, the Genesis albums before "Duke" seemed too artsy, too intellectual. It was on "Duke" where Phil Collins' presence became more apparent, but it's "Invisible Touch" that is the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility, at the same time it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums.

It is hard to express how awesome this is. Map25 really comes alive with "Sussudio" playing in the background. The arrangement haunts me. Map30, the final confrontation with hell, is nothing without "You Can't Hurry Love". The fact that "One More Night" is obviously broken, a tuneless awful mess, just makes the whole project seem complete.

"Phil Collins" and "Doom" should never be in the same sentence, let alone web site.

      Another abomination in doom mapping. It's crap even in crap category.

      Sound replacement is terrible. Sounds are very annoying. Level also is ugly. Only thing I like is sprites replacement. Kicking nazi asses is same as good like demons ones ;)

      Dear Doomkid,

      I was involved in the design and play-test of each of these levels. Please know these were created from *scratch* and we spent our time making sure the levels were as playable as possible. We were not terribly focused on texturing, other than to give players positional awareness in different parts of each arena.

      Map 6 -- Offices of Death -- Was intentionally designed to be as accurate a representation of the office we worked in as possible. Admittedly, playability was taken as a second priority. We did manage to create working "elevators" and "stairs" to give the illusion you were going up and down floors. I was pretty happy with how we did.

      Considering it was 1996, and no way to simply "Google" different ideas. Your best bet at the time was to jump onto the Usenet and hope you could find a decent board with active members. Other than that, it was pretty much all self-taught.

      I'm glad you enjoyed the other levels. Yes, they are old-school, big arena, style. We spent a LOT of time trying to make sure they were as balanced as possible, with escape routes, and required risks for rewards.

      Excellent stuff for the mid-1990s. Lots of action, good layouts, pretty challenging on UV.    9/10
