    Easy, relaxing megawad with very small, but well-designed maps. I played it with Project Brutality to add some extra difficulty and it worked perfectly.

    The Final Gathering

    Rather dated miniwad. Most maps are not balanced well, with either too much or too little enemies and/or ammo. Map04 is overly complicated with confusing maze of corridors and unintuitive usage of switches and trigger lines.

    Hell Revealed

    Pretty good megawad with a slaughter-ish second half. It has balanced difficulty, with most encounters being fair and playable. Very few ambushes! Also, it's surprisingly good with Project Brutality, for its powerful weapons and enhanced enemies. Only the two secret levels were too difficult to play with PB and in two more levels I had to iddqd through the beginning to get the monster count down and the framerate up to two digits. The rest was fine and entertaining because the gameplay was much faster than in vanilla.

    Slaughtermap for beginners. Simple but effective level design, impressive architecture, great lighting. Arch-viles are a bit overused. Played with Meatgrinder mod.

    Pros: Straightforward, lot of action, no button madness. Plays smooth. Classic Doom feeling. Cons: Lots of invisible lines blocking monsters. Lots of hitscanners and not enough health packs.

    Eternal Doom

    Yes, this is a legendary megawad. Yes, there is a lot of positives to say about it. But I can't ignore the button madness present in many levels. In the second half of the game this gets utterly insane - you WILL spend most of the time bashing and shooting every inch of every wall to find yet another hidden switch to be able to progress. Many switches open hidden doors in an unrelated location on the other side of the level without even telling you. Some levels have switches completely invisible and one of them even hides switches in random decoration sprites like trees. I'm sorry but this was no fun and in the end it ruined the entire megawad for me.

    Doom 2 the Way id Did

    It misses that "something extra" that id maps had. Something that you remember those maps for. But maybe it's not fair to compare because the original always has the advantage of nostalgia.

    Return to Phobos

    Crude, simple, yet surprisingly inventive for 1994. There's a lot of switches and the layout is very non-linear and sometimes quite confusing. In one level I had to idclip to the exit because I had no idea how to get there otherwise. Overall, this was a nice nostalgic experience. Difficulty: easy. Mods: Project Brutality 3, UDV.
