3HA may not be a 5-star megaWAD (especially if it never even gets on to the archive) (EDIT: and it's on as of 02/28/13!) and its authors may not be the most seasoned, but most importantly these maps are with a few exceptions playable little morsels and fairly quick from start to finish. You're risking nothing by downloading 3 Heures d'Agonie and giving it a shot and cruising through to see what you like. It'll be interesting to see where the French community goes from here.

|Starting at 1100 monsters and ending just shy of 1800, this is not a map you should try blind. It quickly escalates into a huge multi-tiered battlefield where health is at a premium, especially when all the spread-out commandos do their dirty work, and Darkwave isn't one to let all that open space go to waste once you've cleaned it out. Monsters will repopulate the level at several critical points, with the arch-viles playing the clear villain with all their medical skills. I really don't know how to otherwise describe this map. It's huge and it's got great architecture and it's way beyond my skills to really appreciate it; I almost gave up at several points. I will say that those enormous blue columns in the exit area look very sharp.|
