Give it some slack, it's the first CC, it was a new community, and someone just died. Jesus, take things into consideration.x

most maps are average, but some of the larger ones really bring it down. Sphagne and Use3D make the most complex ones (MAP12-13 back to back really large maps? fuck no), and Magikal's maps have very little sense of progression. I'll say this, MAP29 IS beatable, but it'll take like a fucking hour to do it.x

Some good maps, but very amateurish overall compared to the later CCs. x

A mixed bag, but mostly made up of under-average levels. A few maps are good and memorable, but most are bland and/or terribly unfun, and make you wish there was a more rigorous screening process involved. --JudgeDeaddx

Of all the cchest wads, this one has definitely aged the poorest, shown its date the most. That said, it has the occasional select level that still remains pretty good, along with other acceptable ones. I guess I can't really recommend it over many more consistent community projects (cc3 and cc4 are best here), but I'm not going to give it less than a three either, because some of the levels are still worth seeing.x

I don't find any bad levels in this megawad , all the maps are good but not visually good so don't exept it to be detailed. MAP29 is so awesome , I don't find anything bad at , just because it's long doesn't mean it's bad.x

There's variable quality in this WAD, as might be expected, although for its time it wouldn't have been too bad. Some of the latter levels are less challenging than they are micro-managing. Ammunition is very scarce even if you're carrying over from previous levels and that is frustrating, but not in a good way.x

Sorry but I just didn't like this at all.. boring levels and quite often frustratingly design yawn levels too. Giving up after 9 or 10 maps. Can't take it anymore!!! ....gonna try CC2 now!x

Mediocre. REALLY mediocre WAD. Some good maps are mixed with other terrible maps. I waited much more from this project. Also, the difficulty is pretty times uncompensed between levels. Map number #29 is out to the place. Very complicated and too long to complete. Also, map #30 is almost impossible to beat because the Boss excessive monster spawning, it should be a bit easier. By other way, map number #2 has some nice decorating details, but even could be better built. 2 stars and no more.x

Magikal's maps really killed my overall enjoyment of this megaWAD. As it stands, I'd give this two, maybe two and a half stars. I'd rate it higher if Magikal's maps were edited, replaced, or removed. Thankfully the other CC projects after this are much better.x

Worth playing, no doubt. Ignore the dumbfuck trolls. Taking on monsters with a chainsaw is a problem for n00bs.x

THANKS GOD THE AUTHOR OF MAP06 DIED DAYS LATER OF THE LAUNCH OF THIS WAD Damn, fuck that map, the levels are bad for a 2003 wad, inclusive memento mori does it better for its era. And MAP01 is so fucking hard, MAN, its a fucking MAP01, an arachnotron and a mancubus and no other weapons than your fucking pistol or an useless chainsaw, and why so many voodoo dolls? damn,this is so overrated, I want to diex

CrapChest! Almost nothing to enjoy. :(x

This wad is what really got the online community projects going. Some levels are average, some are very high quality. The effort though must be commended throughout. Map 29 is simply insane!! 4 Stars from me.x

MAP16 has a misplaced vertice in the exterior area causing a line to cross another line where it shouldn't and creating a visual glitch while playing, but it is easily fixed. 5/5 overall.x

This megawad still has some good maps. It is 1/3 filler content (maps available elsewhere - namely Sphagne, Redux, and Blind Alley), but there are at least a reasonable number of other maps that are worth playing. Alex Parson has two nice short levels, and Use3D's Map12 is awesome. Kaiser also made 3 contributions that aren't less than you'd expect from him. TUD, Thomas, and Rex contributed good stuff here too. Not to mention play all the CC's to see how the community has progressed in 9 years!x

So far, I'm not too happy with the first 10 maps, they don't seem to flow very well. 3 Stars. -Lord Mordecaix

Maybe CC was not perfect but for sure CC2 and CC3 are better than this, especially CC2. I even like the monopoly parody screen on CC2, lol. CC1 gets 3 stars because has some good maps and some bad ones.x

Mixed bag. Some maps are excellent, some are mediocre, a few are terrible (map06, in particular). It's neither as good nor as bad as some other people would have you believe. 3 stars + 1 star for the effort and for starting the tradition continued in the much better CC2 and CC3 wads.x

While I admit some of the maps weren't that great, it's not as bad as Arctures and the other guy made it out to be. They're just being over-dramatic. It's a solid mapset overall. 4/5x

appart from map 02, all the map are pure crap, also map 29 is not cool at all. the worst of the serie. 1/5x

Fucking terrible abomination having it's roots in the stagnant cesspool of drugery and decay, terribly mediocre and inconsistent themes and designs, it plays very woefully and get's my medal for being one of the few wads which actually turned me off Doom for a while, that and it's hilarious overhyped and circle jerked to by the biased DW themselves. -2/5 - Arcturesx

Just finished it, and I must say it was quite enjoyable. Some maps were awesome (MAP02), others fuckin annoying (MAP06). -FDx

Very good megawad, but I almost gave it just 4 stars. There are far too many maps (like 10 or so, about a third), just thrown in from other sources (Blind Alley, Sphagne's maps, and Redux). It would really have been better if they had proposed a rule that ALL levels must be exclusive to the release (like was the case in CC3). That being said, the maps that are new are mostly good to even excellent.x

LEVEL 1 - should've been called SawPistol It was a clusterphobic remix of some of Doom II's early game maps. Taking out a Mancubus and other big enemies with a pistol was interesting. 5 of 5 for tricks 4 of 5 for fear 3 of 5 stars as a level LEVEL 2 POLICE STATION Great level! Loved the details like overturned tables and blown up walls. It was a lot of fun and the shooting range was a memorable moment. 5 of 5 as a level 3 of 5 for length 5 of 5 for fun! x

Horrible wad all around. I'm just not having much fun at all. The few good maps are not even worth the pain. x

^I agree, the maps seem too much like early 90's maps, and not even the good ones, like Icarus! The maps are a little too intimidating with the key door and switch hunts.x

It feels like this wad comes from the early 1990s. Most maps are... well, crap with poor design and no details at all, but there are some really good maps (especially 24-26) that are similar to Memento Mori's style and difficulty, so it's not all that bad. I'd give it 3/5. - Demonologistx

Honestly, you didn't like it because it contains random maps? Its a community project! Regardless, a good classic megawad, a few stale maps here and there but overall great.x

Random maps, nothing more and nothing else. Avoid unless you're a mindless player.x

ushily when i find a good megawad, i can come back to it after a few months and its fun eagean, but with cc1 after i have already beaten a level its like, "ben thair, done that" like it would be just as fun to just replay all the original doom2 maps but thats probibly just me, its still a solid megawad for the mostpart and worth atleast won play, 4/5 x

Some maps here are true art, but unfortunatly there are lot of avarage or poor maps. I really like maps made by Ravage, Bad Bob, Kaiser, Rex Claussen, or Thomas v d Velden, ... But other reduce my rating to 3.5/5 - Damnedx
Anonymous
most of maps here is between poor and average quality, and few maps (01, 06, 20, 25, 29) really bad. overall 2/5x

To be perfectly blunt, I didn't like this, I tried all ccs and all of them seem to suffer from a "pass-that-map-what -you've-got?-it's- in" syndrome. The ammount of good maps is surprisingly low (considering that community chest is highly hyped and even won cacowards), and many maps are horrible. From what I see, this is prolly the worst of the 3, so I'll see maybe I'll like the others better (atleast cc3 has map made by tormentor667, so it cannot be bad). Sorry...x

This megawad was really fun until MAP06 - Going Down, when I became hopelessly stuck. Definitely worth checking out.x

I know that it takes tons of work to make even a simple map but damn. Some of these maps I find impossible. I will never play these maps again. Not one outstaning map in the entire fucking thing. I will give credit for time, energy, and the creditiblity for the credit of time and energy. I'm sorry to say that the bad outweighs the good. Emagin a single map, so large that it blows the mind of the ZDoom engin. So large that it takes up as much space as this entire megawad!!! 6/20/07x

Did nobody playtest Map01? Or how do you explain the Voodoo Dolls in that map? (Extra Player 1 starts)x

Looked fun at first, but the supposed "megawad" dead ends at map 09 just past the red door. Am I supposed to IDCLEV to 10 or what?x

Nice and sweet, though CC2 is just the slightest sbit even better IMO, but I still feel nice enough to award this a 5/5. Though Gene Bird really needs to learn how to make better maps or stop participating so highly in these community wad projects (CC2 has this same issue also).x

Excellent wad. Does have some shortfall maps, but expected with that many authors. Most maps are quality and enough worthwhile in this wad for 5 stars. I might shave it to 4.5 if I could do half points just to cover the few levels that fall short, but enough good stuff to roung it up to a 5 (instead of down to a 4). BTW, all of the above applies for the sequel, CC2, as well.x

a few levels were horible but thair were uthers that were awsome it's good fun if you dont have it get it 5/5 -tyrianx

I have mixed feelings on this wad. Altough some are pure quality some are sadly rather below average, but nonetheless deserves 5 starz for the effort of these several people. Great Job. -NMNx
