Here it is, the source of that forest sky texture you see in 25% of 94' wads.x
Spectaculary mediocre. OK for no brain Dooming to kill some time, but not much else.x
This must have been the first WAD I ever played. I recall being fascinated with the new sky and music, after playing the shareware through to digital holes. Twenty years later it's obvious that design- and gameplay-wise this WAD was at best mediocre even for its time. Squiggly layouts, lack of any flow, amateurish texturing and overabundance of supplies. An extra star for the nostalgia factor.x
You have to admit, for around 1994-1995, this was pretty good. Love the music in this WAD too, especially the music for the E2M9. The music sounds very relaxing there.x
I remember this (or an older version) from my old "Doomania" CD, with a bunch of WADs downloaded of the internets. I never understood why it was called "Forest", typical 1994-1995 nastiness. 2/5 for the nostalgia velue alone.x
I played this wad solely because the guy who calls lots of wads "AWFUL" had called it "AWFUL". :) It's not so bad; I'd say it's somewhere between average and mediocre - OK to play if you've nothing better to do. I recognized map02 - it had been in one of the "Cobra Episode" compilation megawads. BTW, there is nothing really resembling a forest in this wad; try, e.g., Skyewood if you want trees and stuff.x
Boring, ugly, repetitive. Say it in big letters: AWFUL!!x
