About This File

Herian2 is fully compatible with only ZDoom version 1.17 or later.

Herian2 has a simple story line. The setting, time-wise, is prior to the fearsome adventures that were seen in Doom and Doom2 the likes of which has never been see again. Many tales have been told since but, with few exceptions, most although.... perhaps interesting, do not have you quaking with fear like the originals.

Before the days of Doom many of the characters that we came to know in these tales and those of Heretic and Hexen were closely associated with each other. Things were different then. During those days the family of Cyberdemons, for example, were closer to their original form before they were modified (not for the first time), due to necessity, for the injuries they endured. The Imps too were a little different.

Your player character is returning from war with a view to settling down to a quieter way of life. Little did he know that what he had already experienced was only the beginning. In this tale he is about to encounter for the first time the Boss of all Bosses, the most fearsome creature ever created.

Well, history did go onto show that he did defeat him only for him to rise again, although a little betrayal might just have helped in the end.... but how did he do it.......?

32 NEW levels, NEW textures, NEW sounds & NEW monsters

All levels were made for single play. Deathmatch and co-operative play is possible, but then forget about the story and just have some fun. Many of the levels are too large for deathmatch.

Pretty good tho not among my favorites. For others who dislike ZDoom, all but a couple of the last maps will work with BOOM-compatible ports.

The attention to detail is unmatched. I look at the level designs for all these levels and think to myself, "why in the world isn't Ian working for a software gaming company?" Superlative 5/5

A few of the levels are confusing, but this is a very good mod. Would have been much better with silent teleports.

Good Doom/Medieval game combo. Map design is nothing extrodinary however certainly sufficient.

Looks good but OMG, the switch hunts and backtracking! It has all the action of a game of Zork. Here's every level: find at LEAST 6 switches, but the next switch only shows up after you find the previous one and could be anywhere else inside of a huge level. Oh, and they're fking camouflaged and nearly invisible! Worse yet, some of them ARE invisible linedefs you walk over not knowing that you even triggered anything! It's a first person where's waldo.

Wonderful use of Hexen and Heretic resources, zdoom scripts and other goodies, surreal environments. Good stuff.

Excellent overall level designs, unfortunately there are a few levels that tend to drag on a bit. It's still pretty cool though. I hated the stealth monsters though.

Yay so cool! Awesome textures and sounds, but I f**king bored finding the hidden switches. There are clever sulotions for getting trough buildings (i mean the teleports) thats why i didnt understand why can i get the top of tower when i jump into a lake. Its absolute unlogical... I missed the music. But cool 5/4

This is not a top 100 wad. This is a top 10 wad. That's how much I love this wad. In fact, I play this wad as a resource wad in every wad I play. I love this wad so much. It gets as many stars as it can possibly have. That is how much I love this wad.

Very creative ideas but the level design is kinda lacking. Rooms look boring with jagged edges in the outdoor areas. Appears to have been made somewhat quickly. 7/10/07

      JENESIS REVIEW:   - Single Player - UV Settings - Pistol starts every Map - Third time playing in about 4-5 years span   The Good:    - Continuous Maps    - Great architecture    - Incredible Hellish themes    - Excellent monster placement    - Clever puzzles    - Loads of secrets. Most are clever as well.    - Great music    - Lots of stuff to get you alive and stocked    - Levels are just the right size. Not small nor are they huuuuuuge.    - Not a slaughterfest, but not easy either. Difficulty is perfect for single player.   The Bad:     - There's no Jenesis II.    In short:   Sometimes, finding a new DooM WAD to play is like finding a decent horror movie to watch: You're going to go through a few crappy ones before you find one that makes it all worthwhile. Jenesis is one of those WADS to play that's worth going through some crappy ones first.   If you are looking for a great balance between dog fighting and puzzle solving, then Jenesis is for you. This game was fun as hell - every level.    Anyone who plays this can easily tell that MUCH work went into this fantastic game. It's WADs like this one that keep me playing. Bravo Mr. Paddock!   You have huge shoes to fill, Jenesis - for my next WAD I play. One of my all time faves. Well deserved Cacoward. What a game! :)   5 out of 5 Stars.

      The best thing to come out of 90s mapping by a long shot, in fact Memento Mori II is probably among the top 10 megawads ever even now, and certainly the only release from the pre-Alien Vendetta era about which I would dare to make such a claim.   The level design here is far tighter and far more professional than that of the first Memento Mori, the only potential exception to this rule being the somewhat strange "Base Exposure". You can trust that there are no baffling offerings in the vein of "Kinetics" or "Cesspool" to be found here. Superior level design aside, visual and thematic progression throughout the Megawad is also far better organized.   As a matter of fact, aside from the comparatively lower difficulty and pervasive presence of puzzle-like level progression, Memento Mori II often feels just as well-conceived and dynamic as a modern PWAD would, making it far, far ahead of its time is that sense.   It is quite unfortunate then, that among the three Megawads released by the Memento Mori crew, those being Memento Mori, Memento Mori II and Requiem, this second installment is by far the least frequently praised and certainly the least frequently played. As it turns out, it is by far the most challenging, but also, more importantly, the most consistently GOOD of the three.

      wow this was...mostly annoying, utilizing such tropes such as low ammo, lots of running around just trying to find the best weapon to choose, and mancubus snipers. I felt trolled. at least Jimmy is a good mapper though. MAP30 was the best map overall.

      IMPORTANT: DO NOT launch the file "AVMOVFIX.WAD" when playing Alien Vendetta. All it does is remove one of best portions of MAP20. That file was conceived as a fix for demo recording back in a day when processors where much less powerful, and despite being included in the download serves no purpose whatsoever in this day and age.   -----------------------------------   An epic experience in the most genuine sense of the word, Alien Vendetta's long-standing reputation as the most legendary Megawad of all is entirely deserved, although it isn't quite my number one choice. Variety, quality, creativity and spectacle abound in just about every moment of this very lengthy, challenging adventure.   Indeed, it should be clear that even now, in 2018 as of me writing this review, Alien Vendetta still belongs to the realm of the fairly difficult by today's overall PWAD standards. However, this absolutely shouldn't stop any curious players from trying it out, because the content offered is absolutely, positively worth it. In fact, although Alien Vendetta as aged a little, it holds up much better than most of its contemporaries and many of the old classics so lauded by the community.   As a negative, I will say that I don't think I approve of that final boss map, which calls upon skills that are never necessary in the rest of the Megawad and generally not a priority of classic Doom gameplay, all the while demanding a very exacting display of said skills from the player. Also, if I really have to nitpick, then I will concede that a couple maps contain very clumsy moments ("Nukefall"...).   I will give away no more and let the rare few Doom 2 players who have not yet experienced this masterpiece discover it for themselves. Highly recommended.

      Well-crafted atmospheric levels, as is par for the course for Eternal's better releases. Unfortunately, MAP02 suffers from the same main issue as MAP02 of Epic, which is to say an overabundance of empty space which the player has to constantly backtrack through while figuring out the map.   The map design here is not on par with Eternal's highest quality releases such as Frozen Time or Hell Ground, be it in terms of visual spectacle or player progression. Neither is the challenge, by which I mean that this is a fair bit easier than the two WADs mentioned above.   Still, although these two maps are definitely no Award-level material, they are satisfying overall and worth playing through at least once.
