About This File

Systems have always existed for the benefit of someone or something. And although somewhat perverted, vices also have always existed for the very same reason. The two are usually in opposition to each other. But when systems and vices are in agreement you either have total chaos or utopia. In this story it is a combination of both. On the surface and because of your upbringing it would appear that it is chaos which rules. But to inhabitants of Sverre, which is where this story takes place it is in fact the other way around. Utopia to them it would seem is to hunt and be hunted. They have no family ties and are not naturally affectionate. They derive pleasure from killing and creating confusion. I must warn you that this creation of confusion is going to be your greatest obstacle. Things are not always as they seem and it is not only your job to hunt and be hunted but also to test the waters as it were to see if you are really true to your own beliefs. In other words... Who's side are you really on?

4 stars for the new music and graphics however the levels aren't that good for example in one level I couldn't find out how to get to the yellow door so I had to clip to get out of the level I mean I had the key but the elevator button wouldn't make the lift go high enough so as a result I had to cheat. Monster placement wasn't that bad though

Nice try, but not as interesting. ~1/5

It's a sort of early mini-TC; the date is 2003 but it must be earlier than that, I guess 1995 or so. The graphics and sounds are very good for one man for 1995 (the pickup sound has been used a lot in other wads). The levels are a bit dull and there are lots of tedious switch/key hunts, and as one of the reviews says level four is where your patience will wear thin (the design is reminiscent of one of Unreal Tournament's best levels, but larger).

There's no need to guess about the date: it was April 1996 - see the wad's date-stamp. (2003 is just the year it was added to the archive.) Great and highly imaginative wad, with a lot of creative areas and features. There's a sort of plot in the background, that kind of binds things together in a weird sort of way. The new music and graphics were greatly appeciated by the Doom comminity back then; they were used by a lot of other mappers. (Better than the modern trend of just stealing resources.)

Some ok new graphics, some not so good. Some ok looking areas, but most of the levels design sucks. Take level 4 for example, the same basic square rooms are replicated about a hundred times.

Wonderful TC with very unique atmosphere, and lots of puzzles. My only regret is there are only 8 levels. *****

A most excellent experience all around. The maps are as small as the campaign, most of them with less than 100 baddies, but it wasn't too easy, just short and sweet. Level 6 was simply spectacular to play. Played using Brutal Doom, despite the mild graphical glitches it causes with TC's like this.

      If you want something quick, fun, challenging, and a little nostalgic, play this.   Good job, Jimmy.

      If you want something that looks uncomplicated but fair looking, easy but not uninvolved, non-linear but small, somewhat blocky but still good architecture and very quick to beat without ever saving throughout all 9 maps then this is your WAD. I played it, I liked it. Design themes stray towards the original E4, but are not exactly the same.

      This is the first non-Euclidean doom wad I've ever seen! And it's done right! That must've been some project. Well done.

      *** PLUTONIA 3 - GOING TO THE SURFACE Review ***   I usually start off my reviews with "The Bad," followed by "The Good." This one is going to have "The Ugly." Ready?   The Good:   - Not a thing.   The Bad:   - Everything. For a more detailed reason, see TurrboAnklet's and/or GuyNamedErick's review (both below). I agree with 110% of every word written in both.   The Ugly:   - Duke Nukem music? Really?!?!?! - BFG9000 in second level. And enough plasma cells to virtually destroy the universe including any parallel ones.   **************************************************************************   In Short: I saw the PLUTONIA name, and I got fairly excited to play it. But, that's the gimmick here, isn't it? Reel you in with the name and then you open Pandora's Box. Freeware or not.   I played a few levels from start, then I IDCLEV'ed to a couple teen-numbered levels, then to mid- to later-twenty numbered levels to see if there was hope in the future for any chance of fun. Nope. It's as much fun as eating a generic-branded box of Mac & Cheese - with the box missing the cheese.   I am required to give this WAD at least 1 star else I can't post a review. So, for that reason ONLY, this "WAD" gets a star. There is no freaking way this took 3 years to build. I would believe it more, if it were 3 minutes. This clusterf*ck not only tarnishes the great PLUTONIA name, it insults the entire DooM universe.   Soooo not recommended. 0 out 5 stars.

      Gameplay is just okay, nothing especially interesting. But the level's theme and textures are pretty damn funny. Everywhere you look there's another little joke. It's worth playing just for amusement. I don't know what the hell these commenters are talking about regarding a "creepy atmosphere", IMO you'd have to be a pretty big weenie to get scared by a Doom level full of joke textures just because its a little dark...
