I'd say this is up there with the best Hell-themed maps for Doom2. You can tell a lot of play-testing went in to it, since the game play balance is perfect with just the right challenge. The general ambience and layout is very well done. The ending was not a let down, unlike most other hell-themed maps. Last but not least, the visuals are wonderful. The only aspect of the map that could have been improved was the lighting, but everything else more than makes up for this.x
excellent map desige and horrorx
very well done, especially the slaughter part at the end. 4.5/5x
A large map with interesting concept of going up vertically. It's difficult too, but not unfair. Very good visuals.x
Pretty good map, but I have to say that the ending is sad as you would still die. With my custom monsters/acs_enter items, it's perhaps even harder. In the elevator trap, I was getting swamped with losing ammo, didn't think I would survive getting pinned against hail fire @ the top. Nevertheless, most is cool map design with alot of custom monsters hell potential, lol. ~4/5x
Not bad for a first map, the combat really should be harder on UV with more monsters in some places, but I liked the way the ambiance built at the start, shows you don't need monsters all the time to set something up. The level also has a good concept, though some things can be harder to pull off in the confines of vanilla Doom compared to GZDoom. The detailing is fine. There is clear potential. I'd really say 3.5 out of 5 but I'll round it up to 4. Thanks for making it. x
