This is an entertaining techbase level with a nice clean design (it makes a change from endless dark gothic-textured maps). Apart from the chaingunners and hell knights it's almost classically Doom 1, especially because there's no super shotgun. The problem is that it's easy; not only did I finish it on my first go in UV, my health never went below 100%. You have far too many rockets and there's plenty of health.x
Good detail, but there's such little variance in the lighting that it detracts from that and makes the WAD feel like a 1996 wad for that alone. Gameplay is okay, nothing to write home about. 3/5x
An attractive map to finish the series. The gameplay lacks any real challenge or points of interest though - it's all quite routine stuff.x
Not as good as some of his regular maps, but still worth a 5 and a worthy end to the series.x
