Please do not request I play your map, sorry I don't have time for this any more.
Do you prefer Quake II? or Doom, perhaps?
I've got nine screenshots of a level I'm creating of my house.
Of course, I'm not the only person on Earth wasting heaps of time reviewing maps; see the Quake Map Hotel and crash for lotsa lotsa reviews.
All are single-player Quake levels, except where noted. The Filename column refers to the name of the zip that can be downloaded from your local cdrom.com mirror.
The worst I've played so far would be slackhaus.
The best wad is hard to choose, but the most recent masterpiece I've played is Zerstörer. 9 single-player levels and 5 deathmatch levels. New weapons, monsters, powerups, sounds, textures and music. Exploding walls, rain, and cut-scenes. Everything is professionally made and put together, and there's even a storyline. :)
