Vrack 2

About This File

This is a giant space station in the gray and tech theme. It is crumbling with hellspawn and filled with deadly traps.
This is a little more like I wanted to have the original Vrack. More detail, more metal, more big enemies, less linear. I have spent a LOT of time with this level, so I hope it gets better than its precursor.
But it was a very hard mission. Vrack was believed by many to be one of the best levels ever created. In most aspects, I think Vrack 2 improves over Vrack. But there are some things, such as the caco intro in Vrack, that in my opinion were perfect - and really hard to substitute :| ...
Still, I hope you will find this level enjoyable!

A map I discovered ages ago and still play quite often. This is one of my favourite maps. I love the aesthetics of it - tech/space station. It is much bigger than the first vrack but basically the same, but better. It's fairly old school in style (no slaughtery bits) but can get quite hectic. There is quite a bit of searching and backtracking when looking for keys or switches, but that is no issue usually - especially as the level design and architecture are superb...

 

A definite one to play.

Very nice map, only the end-battle could have been bigger, and there are some mean ambushes. Apart from that it looks and plays great, and you gotta love the cacos owning the cybers :) 5/5

FFS, there's a whole bunch of links near the top of this page. And 5 stars, of course.

Good map layout, texture use, decoration & ambiance. Great gameplay @ UV is challenging with plenty of smart traps (f.e. yellow key vrs 24 revenants: looks impossible, but is quite easy); however, due to the map size the fights gets a bit repeatable, not the least because of the time it takes for causing infights again and again. Cacos versus cybies fights are fun, spiders vrs arachnotrons a bit dull. Overall: solid 4/5.

Almost as good as the first. Or in other words, another excellent level that follows on quite well. It's tougher than the first Vrack, and a little bigger too. Plasma is hidden well on here, so look out for it. Still worthy of a 5 because the fun factor is in spades. -TRRobin.

This map was ok but not that good. It's overhyped
and not as detailed or well designed as people say
but maybe enjoyable to play through if you're bored.

Much better than the first Vrack. Excellent clear design, no monotonous sections, coherent theme, monsters everywhere, couldn't be better.

      Pretty long maps and there are some real stinkers in there like map 19. But overall, its fun even though it can get frustrating at times.

      A fun, non-linear base level somewhat on the easy side but still worth playing and has good replayability.

      The only thing good about this set of maps are the encounters which are balanced. All the rest are horrible, noob designing with invisible pillars in all the maps, unavoidable damage without radsuits, keys required to progress in secret places, hidden teleport required to progress, everything bad in designing you can find in those maps. Be sure to avoid this, certainly one of worst set of maps I've ever played.

      How could i miss this gem for all this time... This is going to inspire me so much, level design is fantastic, top level creativity and a nice challenge. Texture usage is perfect and new sprites and monsters fit in perfectly.   1000/5, easily one of the best megawads ever made! Thank you Skillsaw!!

      I'd have to say this is a pretty creative one for Doom 2, its hard with lots of enemies, kind of plays like a direct sequel to Doom 2 in a lot of ways. One thing I will say is that the puzzles are hard to figure out, and might take you awhile to solve (use your map). The music is fantastic though, you don't really miss the classic music, and it's engaging to gameplay.   I will say though, like Doom 2 or Plutonia, ultraviolence is pretty brutal and isn't for everyone. You will get swarmed by absurd amounts of monsters at times, and they'll give you a beating, but it's doable. I'd say the puzzles will snag you more than the monsters, level 2 is a real humdinger, lol.   But, it's a big improvement over wads like Perdition's Gate, the mapping style is pretty creative. I give it 5/5, just so people will try it out.
