I hope my criticism sounds properly and not in any aggressive way.

While I enjoyed the maps, I would say I had a feeling there's something off with the dimensions of the rooms. What I meant is that it doesn't feel Doom-y at all, but it's not a bad thing, the maps definitely have their own theme to them.

I really like the visuals and the large geometry seems interesting and unique. I enjoyed the whole experience.

The first three maps indeed feel a bit "empty" compared to the usual Doom PWAD, lots of large rooms, often monsterless. But it's not a problem IMO. Just a change of pace. Slaughtermaps enthusiasts will be disappointed, I suppose, but it's not like they're lacking in options anyway.

You know how the first map in Aliens TC just did not have any monster at all? I got about the same feeling with the three keyhunt maps. It kind of builds up tension for the last map.

That is one of the things. The maps look like they were built to look good, and then monsters/traps were added on top of the built geometry/theme.

Another thing is that I noticed that in some areas (like with Spider Mastermind) I simply don't have ammo and I have to run by a few threats before I return and finish them.
It's an interesting choice of pace and it creates a unique and tactical challenge. Most of the maps you just run and gun, so it's fun in its own way.

And of course the puzzles deserve a praise. They are simple yet somewhat unique, it was cool to work a bit more to get a key.
