hell yea, cool fun QUAKEx
I gave this wad 5 stars because it was a long time ago I last played Quake, and no matter how short this map is, the feeling is there. 5/5x
This map is a favorite of mine, even if it is short, simple, and a Quake recreation. The above reviewer is incorrect--all Knights are replaced with Demons, and all Fiends (except one which is missing) are replaced with Revenants. I was disappointed that the Shambler the accompanied the Fiends was not present in some form--an Archvile could have stood in for it nicely. Or I think there was a Shambler in the original map, it's been a while... 5/5 --Wooliex
It's a clever and more-or-less faithful recreation of one of Quake's early levels, complete with some Quake sounds. If anything the colours are more vibrant and it's slightly more fun to play. There aren't any nail-shooting traps, and it's odd that the knights aren't replaced by the revenants (it's a bit inconsistent - some of the knights are demons, some of the jumpy things are also demons). And of course Quake was no fun to play, so this gets stars for cleverness.x
I love it too and agree with the score and review above, except that to me it feels better without the added sounds, which can easily be removed with something like XWE or WinTex.x
Now here's a treat! A faithful recreation of Quake's E1M2: "Castle Of The Damned". For those who gave up Quake years ago this will be a nostalgia trip. New sounds add to the effect. The most amazing thing is how the author manages to give the map a definite "Quake" feel without using any custom textures! The only downsides are that it's much too easy (then again, so is the original!), and some monster conversions QuakeDoom seem odd. Overall, a thoroughly enjoyable 5 minutes. --4/5x
