Overall - SCORE: 10

You are NOT going to find any better design or play in any map anywhere. Just get it!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

DIFFICULTY RATING  - rating: 10

    I think maybe a month or so ago I would have probably found this map impossible but I've been developing my strafing skills and believe me - I needed them here. There are several things that make this map VERY difficult. First is the map itself - It's huge. I really should have taken it in a couple of different sessions but I played straight through cuz I just couldn't stop. Second is the design of the map - Cory designed it so that the player would get trapped in situations that required coming back from a save game to retry that area again. I came to expect the unexpected and even with that I still got caught (alot). Third is the monsters. There are thousands of them. My weapons were hot and smoking throughout! If you are a doom god then perhaps you will find this a little less challenging than I did. If you are not so skilled - find a different difficulty level other than Ultra Violence because you are going to get your ass kicked, and, while I don't know what he did to make the other difficulties easier - I'm sure you are still going to get your ass kicked. I suggest planning on spending some quality time with this map.
 

 

Playability -  rating: 10  

    I guess that depends on what you like. This map is HUGE with a capital H. There are tons of secrets, switches, lifts and surprises in this one. Expect the unexpected. Expect to spend some time trying to find out what a switch opened - or closed or lowered or raised or whatever. If you don't like maps like that then you aren't going to like this one. If you like a map that challenges you as much as the monsters do then you will LOVE this one. I absolutely went nuts for it - 2 hours on this map alone.

 

Level Design -  rating: 10

     Also a strong area of this map, you won't find the kind of detail that will make you go - WOW! What you will find is a solid design with enough detail to keep it interesting and a genius for puzzle making. None of the puzzles are so tough that you just give up but they are interesting and well designed. Honestly, you're not going to have much time for sightseeing anyway. I can't help but give this map a 10 for design as well even tho many people will probably disagree because it doesn't have that WOW factor but I guarantee a good time to be had by all who play this map
