First of all it's a quite old release back in 2004 and is part of the 20 first maps released. Taking this in account and the fact that all community grew and update a lot the way of mapping till then, this map should really be looked in a way the author has high potential of developping stuff.
The General Design of this release is certainly above average there is a good use of texturing (well mixed), squale is ok and general ambiance is not only focus in one theme but visit cotrectly the design of a complex. It's perhaps a little too dark (but it's part of the ambiance and gives more power too traps) and certainly miss some cutscenes or a more gore feeling buy travelling trough places where mess has put everything incide out.
Scripting is slightly present trough launch screen and pda use bot lack perhaps some more key hunting or activation panels.
Gameplay is well fitting the release increasing difficulty with progression and give the player some 'arena' fight that is part of doom history.
In conlusion: for a first release from the author it really got eveything to create an enjoyable release. Well worth to be tested.
