Description: The Nadir is a short (~2 hours) Hexen adventure that aims to extend the experience once the vanilla game and expansion end. I found myself wanting to play more Hexen after completing these, so the result wasThe Nadir. This is a project I created as a personal goal and for my own enjoyment, but decided later in the creation process that I would share it with others who enjoy this game and user-created material.

Bugs: Projectiles can pass through upper part of some enemy bodies, but I think that's a Hexen issue

Slopes looked out of place here - every sloped surface could have been replaced with stairs. The only enemy I really didn't like was the Acid Golems, and the power of the Dark Gargoyle's fireball was far too great for its size. I find it is truer to the Hexen feel with its back-and-forth between levels design than many wads that have more levels than this. The new melee weapon I barely used while playing as the Mage though.x
dylux: Too short. Trying to figure out where 4 MB of this file went because it wasn't on gameplay. Must be on new monsters. Very unmemorable WAD...nothing special.x
Epic... wait... ah... well, it's not bad and have some fun on it but those new monsters are annoying(not the solider). No comment on BOSS fights and visual effects...but, I think it can be better...Hexen + GZDooM should not just like this I think. 2.5/5 -playerlinx
2/5 for effort, this needs more work still.x
While I don't care much for this Hexen wad being GZdoom specific, its not a bad short hub. 3/5x
Hexen doesn't deserve this.x
Terribly unfun. The level design is interesting at times, but hideous at others. Ugly use of slopes and particle fountains abound. The author included the most annoying monsters he could find on the Realm667 bestiary and two weapons from Heretic which are semi-broken. Proper placement of monsters is forgone in favor of using the new monsters as often as possible. Meh, 2/5 stars for effort.x
