  1. This is pretty much a testing level to see what I could do with Hacx resources and I think it came out sort of funny. Be warned that this may be chock full O' misaligned textures.

  2. My first map for HacX, and the first of my 'Alternative HacX' series. On the HacX front, I am dedicated to making HacX maps as constructed from the original plan - given to me by Nostromo along with HacX v1.0 and 1.1. As this map is cyberspace, I had some trouble finding matching textures and flats - it may look ugly to you in parts, but that is not entirely my fault. Forgive me if the outer area lacks detail, but I really couldn't be bothered to make all those other buildings blink as well. :-) (After all, the Internet was not designed with aesthetics in mind.) This WAD has new music, written HacX-style by me, it is included in the WAD as a MIDI file for all you budding composers out there to goggle at and admire. :-)

      The map description states that Haruko tried to express his depressive feelings through the texturing and that came through. The dim lighting and midi went a long way in helping it to sell the depressive feeling.   The geometry was solid with some particularly nice detailing here and there but the actual layout was really good. The central hub worked well with keeping you on track.   The monster placement was on point and led to interesting fights - particularly the ones involving archviles. I really found the difficulty to be just about perfect on UV.   The crescendo at the end worked very well where it was tough but understandable and beatable. At first it's a chaotic mess of monsters, archviles and an Icon of Sin but as you work your way through the madness it starts to make sense.   It takes care and attention to try to express something as abstract as an emotion (other than rage) through Doom wads and I think Greymood did that with the gameplay to back it up. I'd be interested to hear from Haruko if any particular set-piece or element was representative of anything.

      Great re-imagination of Doom 2, the levels look and play good with each having they're own theme and / or different progression style, keeping things fresh, definitely recommended.

      This is okay.  Some unused beta content, lotta console content.  I can appreciate the increased difficulty, but some of the texture and music choices early-on kinda put me off.  Didn't much care for E5M4.   It's not terrible, but it isn't hard to see why the beta maps were scrapped from the final version of the game.  Give it a try, if you're feeling bold.

      Alright, so, what can I say about Memento Mori 2 after finishing it and the first one?   Well, first of all, the levels are more beautiful, visually it aged noticeably better than the original and uses more custom textures, some already seen in the original. The music is on par with the original.   The levels themselves are overall better designed for the most part, but here is where the problems make themselves known. MM2 is clearly designed more for co-op than single player. This starts getting very noticeable after MAP24. Whereas the original had a few maps that dragged on, particularly at the beginning of the wad, this one drags on extremely bad after MAP24. Not just that the maps are starting to become huge and with hundreds of enemies and very annoying traps, it also starts becoming more confusing and tiring, MAP27 being the worst offender. The main tower in MAP28, or rather the overall level, is unfun as well, doing a poor job at keeping you entertained for the most part, save for a few areas where you also get an Invulnerability, but not on the edge of your nerves like MAP27 does. Eh, the traps don't go crazy at least.   Post MAP24 levels simply become tiresome and no longer bring much pleasure. The war of attrition also gets real in some maps, MAP27 still being the best example, giving you lots of rockets and some health to recover from the orgy, if you manage to find the secrets, but not much else. Without locating the secrets it can be extremely infuriating and especially difficult to finish, hence me actually forcing myself to finish the wad, it was very tempting to just can the whole thing after reaching MAP24 because it ceases to be fun at that point, turning instead in a struggle for survival. Like I said, MM2 makes it very clear that it's more co-op/multiplayer oriented and not very suitable for solo, or not on UV anyway.   Unlike the first MM, I managed to locate both secret exits and I must say that for secret levels, they're pretty easy, which is very surprising. I can't compare them to the ones from the original MM because I failed to locate any of them there.   I also don't have any favorite maps to my surprise, I like most of them, and even the maps that drag on like hell are not bad themselves, just not suitable for playing solo, but can't exactly pick any, whereas City of the Unavenged from the original was easily my favorite, here? I'm not sure...   Either way, all things considered, it's a solid wad and a great sequel to the original. Worse? No, but then why the lower rating? Well, simply for not providing a solid experience in SP towards the end, so if you want to play it solo like I did, it doesn't really work anymore when you're about to finish it. It drags on and the difficulty also spikes nastily.

      Sometimes, after playing through a level set that stomps your balls in, you want to relax with something a little more laid back. This is that megawad. Highly recommended. <3
