Salt-Man Z
One of my all-time favorite megawads. There are a couple of stinkers in here, to be sure, but they're easily balanced out by a number of absolute classics.x

I just played this and it was pretty good. especially in the last maps. x

Funny how map design often reveals mappers' individual gaming strengths and weaknesses, in this case overwhelmingly the second. Gameplay is mostly easy, repetitive and predictable, with annoying design habits (pop up monsters, for one) and some, but few, good moments. Map 23 (a 500 monster long, drawn out switch hunt where you end up running thru the same empty places a million times over) made the game crash on my comp, that's when i quit. No recommend...x

Mixed quality, it's kind of like the earlier CChest wads (better than CC1 though). Could have used more new music. There are some cool levels though, and the majority of them are serviceable. (I hate Map15 though!) As a whole, enough to warrant a look.x

really fun community mapset and it's better than its terrible sequel, despite a few annoying puzzles in some maps. also MAP23 owns.x

Played mostly great in GZDoom with Brutal Doom mod... until arriving that FUCKING-CRAP map 23. This aberration badly-built level completely ruined my experience with this megawad, thanks to a really extreme lag in several situations and even a system crash 'cause the excessive complexity of such map. What a fucking CPU/GPU eater, my god. Totally impossible to complete.x

Great work guys.x

This is a nice mapset, but most of the maps were pretty long and it was hard to see what to do next. While most of the maps were pretty easy (despite being really long and confusing), others were fucking hard (4, 9, 31 and 27, seriously fuck these maps because I died a lot in them). There are also some HOMs (most noticeable in MAP30). I give this 3 stars, I would have given more if were addressed the issues above. I played with AEOD 6.02 -Doomer95x

really? nd is the worst doom community, there are lots of HOMS and other glitches, IT's not worth to download, read reviews! ok, there was some effort but you can't seriously compare this to other megawads, seriously, this one doesn't even deserves 4 stars, it deserves 3. seriously. ok, i give this 2* for effort. no more, no less.x

Played perfectly till MAP30 where two huge HOMs broke the Icon of Sin. No stars for that.x

A megawad right in the spirit of CC, etc. Highly recommended. The second one has better-looking maps but this has better gameplay and more testing.x

if I wanted to run around & solve puzzles I'd play Myst. x

To the above reviewer... that is quite a statement. However, it is a good wad though some levels are a little boring. 4/5x

What we have here is a really famous wad by the newdoom community, and it is a pretty nice job. Even though some of the maps are pretty annoying, overall this is something worth-getting. 3/5x

Yeah, a mixed bag that felt uneven. Still, some quality maps in there. My personal fave maps are 9,19,23,24,27,28,29, 31 and 32.x

I'm giving it a 4. It's not quite the requiem, alien vendetta, eternall doom or scythe 2, the maps are uneven. I loved map 06, maps 05, 17 were memorable aswell, and many others were good quality (I can't remember all) but the quality varied a bit too much throughout, it could've used some spicing up and detailing as too many levels were boring and a bit underdetailed, giving it a feel as if it's older than it really is. I hated maps 15,32,18,09,07 and 23. Still, recommended. -TeH NeXuSx

Very good megawad. Play! 4 stars. Why? Well it's a little uneven, that's why. It's like, I admire a beauty of a map 1 and it's impressive gothic architecture, but then get greeted with a sight of a giant, ugly baronhead pillar on a map 23 (whoever did that map needs to rethink about his past actions), or, map 27-AWESOME, 28-PUAH some maps where excellent (kudos to whoever did 27,17,10,6,14 awesome stuff), and all round, this is great. A nice fat 4, and a kiss in the forehead to the guys!!!x

Well this took forever to finish and this is what I think. Maps 1,4,5,8,11,12,14,20, 21,26,27 are very nice quality levels. Maps 3, and 31 are awsome, map 31 probley being my favorite. Maps 2,6,9,10,17,19,22,23 ,25 are good maps but too damn confusing. They take some time to complete. I didn't like map 7. I couldn't finish map 13 because of a door. Maps 32,18,24,28 were just ok maps to me. So yea thats what I think if anyone cares. Good job on all the levels, it was fun.x

Pretty good stuff, well done community. I know this isn't the final release, but may as well point out a few bugs just in case. Map09 you can get stuck in places and activate the central switches by walking along the rails thus you don't need the keys! I think I'll email the others I seen. This shows why releasing things early without the team's agreement is not a wise thing to do. I look forward to the offical release. - pritchx

Not bad, yet nothing too special or new. There are some especially nicely made maps. 4/5 -Nautilusx

About as good as the two Community Chest megawads. From what I've played the maps are expectedly a bit hit and miss, but there are definitely some good levels in there. 4/5 FPx

It was uploaded by me because I hate it when the archives don't host new wads. I'll make sure any re-releases are re-uploaded.x

Note: As of 09-Jan-06 this is not the current version of ndcp, and it contains several known bugs. It was not uploaded with the agreement of the NDCP team. Wait for an official release, or at least get the current "in-progress" version. http://forums.newdoo m.com/forumdisplay.p hp?f=67x

A descent set of maps. Much like the Community Chest, there are some really excellent maps with the occasional poopy one. However, the mapset is a winner and deserves a couple play-throughs. 4/5x
