My Review:


This map is ridiculous with the action.  There were so many baddies chucked into this map that the map crashes when used by ZDoom, Legacy, JDoom, Boom.... I went down the distinguished list of Doom engines until I found one (Risen 3D) that worked.  There were some texture misalignments around the doors in certain sectors and some boredom in finding all of the FRIGGIN' switches this guys hid in the map. In fact, I got stumped in one area and decided to just jump over some walls to get to the next thing...though I don't think that was what the mapper intended (whoops..).  There are LOTS of bad guys, LOTS of bosses to fight, LOTS of battles that cannot be avoided for they bar the way out....  But,  if you live long enough, you get GOBS of ammo and Soul Spheres to boot, so things balance out fairly well.  

Overall Composite Score:  8.5
