Pretty high quality stuff. The colored lighting really makes it pop, cool textures and good atmosphere all around.

A little messy, a little cluttered, strangely Doom-like overdetailing. So I guess this one is closer to the author's Doom works than the previous one. I got lost somehow, even though it's very small.

Custom music is always appreciated.

I like color lighting, but here it is acid lighting, my eyes are broken!

Very good looking map. Cool music too. Quite the challenge as well. Can't wait to see the rest when they are done. I'll wait to rate until it is a complete set.

This map is beautiful. On hard setting gets your blood pumping, could only find 1 of the 2 secrets. Well done on this map.5/5

Really dug this map. Very atmospheric with some beautiful details, Gameplay was almost perfectly balanced for me. I felt like I was always on the cusp of death but always just made it through. The coloured lighting is a little bit strong in some spots, but in most areas it looks fantastic. Also, the custom music adds so much to it. Fantastic work!

Basically I agree with everything everyone has said above: this is a really nice map with plenty to look at and very well-balanced gameplay that left me often short on health but never feeling things were impossible.

I've only given four stars, partly for the difficulty in finding secrets when things are this visually elaborate, but mostly just because the most awesome modern maps are so much bigger. I really hope that the other four episodes are along soon, and I can rate the whole thing — almost certainly at five stars if the other three maps are as good as the first.

I liked the idea of giving a pumped axe at the start and later on the author still plays with some zombie knights. I liked the this idea, although I hate axing enemies. Maybe give a widowmaker with fewer shells for the player to choose when to spend ammo.

Agree with what everyone said above. Zero secrets for me, although the yellow armor was clearly a secret, I couldn't spend time searching for details in an already detailed map.

Lots of fun with this one!

Some clashing colors in a few spots yeah, but I enjoyed seeing someone have a more "saturated" and kind of old-Doom-like approach to the color palette. Between the colors and the new music it did a good job keeping my interest.

The path crossing back over and through some of the areas was handled really well too, I always enjoy that sort of thing.

I think my only real gripe was that some spots were too dark, playing on a default-gamma setting with a monitor that I think is pretty well calibrated. For example the doors to the Hall of Pain and the Hall of Not-Quite-So-Much-Pain (or something like that) were invisible to me, I just found them by wallhumping.

Looking forward to seeing this pack/series continued.
