An exceptional follow up to a great wad. Like the first one, this has tons of details and you can see how influential it has been. Is it as good as the first one? I believe so yes. 5 stars. -TRRobin.

This megawad raised the bar on all projects in development. The levels are covered with architecture so incredible, you won't believe it's doom. You'll be drooling for more after playing through this.

Much bigger and more complicated maps than the first Darkening, not to mention a new texture scheme, but all the base qualities of its predecessor remain.

This awesome map pack is a more than worthy follow up to E1. With much bigger levels (many are huge), almost all new textures (FAR more than E1 had), and good, challenging gameplay, along with some good DM levels after the SP episode, this wad has just about everything going for it and is not one to miss!

I just love this levelset. The textures are
amazing as is the music, in the first released
version, second released fucked that up a bit
with replacing cool music with not so cool.
Levels are big and detailed with great gameplay
and... stuff.

A vastly superior sequel to The Darkening, which was already a fantastic wad. So you know you are in for something really spectacular with this one - I will stop right here so I don't spoil the fun!

WOW, DOOM 2 beats Quake 2 at its own game! Very balanced gameplay that just doesn't feel as repetitive as it seems. Some musics are great (eg MAP07 or MAP11), while, as others have said, a few others aren't so good (esp. MAP05 meltdown) But this wad still is Legendary for its immersive gameplay.

Oops i just planted a review intended for this wad on the Darken1 page... anyway, overly complex maps that tend to get you lost a lot, and without nearly enough monsters to make the journey even halfways interesting... ends up being a confusing, frustrating snoozefest. (played with brutal doom on Brutal difficulty). also didn't like the textures. Becomes very monotonous after a while... D1 was less polished but far more entertaining!

Darkening 2 is basically a set of base maps that served as a prototype for all the boring generic as fuck horse shit modern tech bases we see nowadays. Still though, it's not Ola or team's fault that the doom community is monkey see monkey do, so this still gets a 4, as it is fun in it's own right.

Ridiculously good. One of the best mapsets ever, hands down. Forget the new stuff, this holds up as well now as it ever did. Brilliant.

ellmo: DE2 is a damn masterpiece. An inspiration and example for all mappers, who are willing to build some tech-type *.wads. A must-have with more than 600 new textures/flats, all new music for 12 levels, plus 12 amazingly good DM maps. Challenging but not impossible. My "numero uno" among Doom2 add-ons. 11/10 !

It's difficult to find a pwad that I enjoy. The Darkening 2 get this by far. 5/5

Fine level designs with decent flow (the only flaw being that the action can be a bit slow or sparse occasionally), with an innovative texture set (the only flaw may be the dithered effect used to create unusual color tones, which looks better at medium or long distance). Wlies did the best combination of level flow/texturing. The music is also innovative but mostly doestn't fit the game or environment. [4/5] ~Chain Mail

Even more theme rigid than Darkening I. The design is good, the music is funny. There's tons of action. Try it now. 4/5. IC

One of the best wads of all time. No comment required. A MUST have for every Doomer. ********** - Daniel

Absolutely fantastic maps, with high degree of visual polish. Gameplay offers that kind of pacing and -reasonable- challenge that is sadly rarely encountered in modern, increasingly slaughter-oriented megawads.

      Despite a few maps here and there that didn't sit too well with me—the good so heavily outweighs the bad that I can't give it anything but 5 stars. Map 12 may be one of the best I've played.

      Kinda surprised there are no reviews for this yet. So I guess i'll be the first to review it. So this is apparently based on The Tick character (mainly the cartoon version) and uses sounds and graphics taken from the cartoon show. I played this a lot as a kid not really knowing too much about the Tick except for the live action show on Fox with Patrick Warburton. The wad itself is fine. Nothing too special. It's really just another Simpsons Doom/South park doom graphics and sounds replacement. It's not terrible just kinda hard to recommend. I'm only giving this 4 stars cause this brings back childhood memories of me playing this wad and having fun with it.

      This is my first review on this website. I know this is a very old WAD for Doom 2, but the fact that someone actually took the time to make a Partial Conversion of Doctor Who for Doom 2 is pretty impressive in my opinion. It also helps that this Doom wad took inspiration from the 4th Doctor Tom Baker who is one of my favorite Doctors (my main favorite being the 9th Christopher Eccleston. I always found it odd that the pistol replacement was the Sonic Screwdriver cause I've never seen it used as a weapon, but more as a tool, but I guess it works for this. I also loved hearing a rendition of the Doctor Who theme in the first level. I wish I knew who's theme it was supposed to be because it sounds really good. The enemy replacements are really creative too. Daleks replacing the Imps was brilliant. The only thing I kinda wished about this was that there were new levels. Again it's not a huge issue considering that probably around the time this came out it would have taken some time for new levels.   I really don't think this wad gets the attention it deserves and is very overlooked. If you are a Doctor Who fan you should check it out. 10/10 from me.

      Part of the second and third episode are quite a lot of fun and very competently made! Unfortunately, the first 15 maps or so are really bland and easy.
