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

      Pretty good. The combat was fun and design wasn't bad at all.

      Despite its age, nice details and well designed. Way how blue key is hidden is really clever. But map is dark and cramped. Enemies are only imps and hitscanners.

      the more I play the more I get more sad that this map pack is going to end soon its really great :)

      Pretty good map in E1 base style (except Doom2 monsters) Nice design but there some texture alignment issues.

      Despite the browns and grays that are prominent in this megaWAD, I found it to be fun. I also found it to be quite the challenge. The first map gives you a taste of what to expect in terms of enemy encounters. The author makes good use of mid-tier enemies to apply pressure on the player. Monster count for most of the maps barely breaks the 150 mark but, as said before, the use of mostly mid-tier enemies puts pressure on the player. I also like how the megaWAD handles level progression. Most of the levels you go through consist of caves, cities, islands, and tech bases in space. In fact, there's only one real Hell-like level and even it's within the confines of the moon base you fight through in maps 21 - 30.   About the only gripes I have with this megaWAD are with regards to maps 32, 29, and 30. I know the text file and map 31 give warnings about map 32 but there really should be some kind of alternate exit in map 32 instead of trapping you in place if you don't pass one of the puzzles. I wasn't a fan of how close quarters the IoS fight was in map 29, especially since it can get cramped quickly with monster spawns. Finally, the randomization of what keys spawn during your escape in map 30 isn't fun either. 10 minutes seems like plenty of time but between navigating the vent system (again) without light goggles and dealing with mid-tier enemies, that 10 minutes can get eaten up really quick.   Overall, it's still a fun megaWAD. I'd recommend at least giving it a shot.
