This wad had no accompanying txt
file, so I have to write this from what I learned from Colin’s mail as he
submitted the wad. As I understand it is mainly for DM, but since I don’t
exactly know for certain, I’ve chosen to review it as a singleplayer
level, since the monsters were there. So I’m excused, I hope! There's one
word that fits this level rather nicely and that’s Old School. Mostly
because O.E.O looks like something that was made 5 years ago and in a damned
hurry, that is!
It is a city-level (which there
aren’t too many off!), since it
supposedly reflects a real place in Ohio. The small
size makes it pretty easy to navigate as opposed to most city-levels!
Unfortunately there is not really much else to say. The level has a lot of
texture misalignments and too many unoriginal ideas to give the player any
challenge or experience for that matter. Monsters are just put in randomly,
and on UV there’s a Revenant and an Arch Vile stuck to each other in a
small elevator!! ..which isn’t really to good put together either! And the
thing that makes the level so utterly different from today’s standards of
editing, is the fact that it totally lacks detail! There’s not
a thing that
makes you stop for a minute to have a look. No special features and no
surprises, just a plain old fashioned and rather ugly level!
