The /newstuff Chronicles #470
Jaws In Space on Abyssal Speedmapping Session 11: Visually this is one of the most impressive ASMS I have yet played, having previously played #7-10. All of the maps have a nice bit of spooky detailing to them, with good use of lighting and a nice spooky Halloween-themed texture pack used throughout the WAD. The layouts of each map are also pretty good, but I think that Jimmy does do the best job layout wise; it's pretty nonlinear and provides good use of height to introduce challenging game play.
