I guess you haven't tried Spear Resurrection and End Of Destiny yet. There's teleporters and puzzles galore in those add-ons to spice up the gameplay. Along with new weapons which are less cartoony and more serious-looking.


I think he was referring to the original and unadultered Wolf3D, not advanced source ports with extra bells and whistles.

Really, Wolf3D felt more like a showcase of a 3D engine with the gameplay thrown in as an afterthought. I wondered how I actually played through it in two weeks back in 1994...something I wouldn't repeat again. I think the only reason I did play it was because I had FIRST played Doom and only AFTER that I learned of the relationship between the two...Doom's ancestor...it HAD to be cool, right? I tried to find that "cool" for two weeks and....well...other than my OCD of trying to collect every item and find every secret room, I couldn't really justify the effort.

Sounds like we should be comparing it to DOOM3 then. :/ And I still say Wolf3D is better than that excuse of a sequel which wasn't even a sequel at all.

I can't even agree to disagree on that one, seeing as I loved Doom 3. Although I certainly won't deny that it was very tech-demo-y.

WOLF3D is fun, but hitting every wall for secrets does get old after a while.

Wolf3d is a product of it's time much more so than Doom but still enjoyable for what it is. Complaining about what it isn't is kind of missing the point.
