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.

      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.
