Excellent adventure with a dark atmosphere, cool architecture, and fun gameplay. The level/puzzle design is well-done, with engaging puzzles across multiple maps and interesting spins on the traditional locales (eg. the fire level is a mountain on a sea of lava). The whole wolf theme was also unique and interesting. It was very helpful that completing everything necessary on a map resulted in the message "Map completed", preventing unnecessary backtracking. Unfortunately I didn't acquire enough aeon mana to unlock the aeon attack, but I did get enough to unlock the aeon passive (regenerating mana for the mage), and it was very useful. The new enemies & bosses look good, although they aren't perfect. There are a couple of oversights like how the wolves lack a death animation or the ettinwolves lack most noises. The best enemies were probably the statue bosses (who totally took me by surprise), as they were complete, fit best with Hexen's artstyle, and filled a unique role.

 

Unfortunately, the flame mask and ruined town puzzles do not work properly in newer versions of GZDoom, so you'll be forced to noclip to complete both of them if you start the game not in an older version. That isn't the author's fault though, so it's not a criticism.

Old -- and it shows -- but it has heart, and it shows that too.

This version doesn't work with the latest version of ZDoom (2.6.1 as of writing). Fortunately, there's a version which does http://www.prdarkfox .com/doomstuff/wolfe n.7z Also, this is a great wad. :)

Finally, something which makes the money I shelled out for Hexen all that time ago worthwhile.

With the one of the later versions of gzdoom (i'm using r404), it works perfectly up until you need the firemask. It won't be usable. You'll just have to noclip through the bars with a teleporter in the middle outside of that cave to continue. Everyting else works just great. -GuntherDW

Excellent usage of ZDoom features. Some of the sprites are a hair awkward and one of the songs is annnoying as all hell, but other than those two minor quibbles every kilobyte of this wad is pure win. 4/5 -deadnail

Great atmosphere, impressive job keeping the player from being lost. I only got lost about a quarter of the way through--after getting the Gear from the swamp area, I went to the town area, cleared out the temple, and couldn't figure out where to go next. I could tell that the alcove at the back of the temple was supposed to have a door, but I couldn't tell how to make it open.

this level set is downright amazing. the new enemies and animations blend in well which is what really sets it apart from the rest. the music is awesome and the puzzles are well done. what hits the spot are the boss fights. 5/5.

http://zdoom.org/fil es/lars/63a.cab If I remember right, Wolfen was made to run with that version of ZDooM. It works for me. Legendary wad, 5 stars -Trollmann-

New weapons, new monsters, kickass stuff. Only real complaint is the boss fight- seemed like it was just thrown in there. Otherwise 5 stars.

Very nice! Even better replay value (thanks to Aeon powers)! Probably the best user-made Hexen hub yet. The only problem was that there was no death animation for one of the new monsters (the werewolf). But that was the only problem. Everything else was awesome. 5/5

Okay, but nowhere near as good as it's made out to be. The new monsters are all either recolors or have ugly sprites, the techno music tracks aren't fitting at all, and there's far too much "what did that damn switch do"/"where is that damn key/switch/whatever " (you know you've got problems when the secret level is easier to find than the standard way to progress).

      this is a mockery of two of the best wads of all time.  on top of that gameplay sucks.  don't get it for your sake.

      Another solid mapset that captures the PSX version feel perfectly. Maps comes in all flavors, from techbases and urban areas to the menacing void and, of course, HELL and also has some unexpected secrets which you might play it to see. Of course, I absolutely love the PSX version of Doom and this one is no exception. Gameplay speaking, it's pretty balanced and thought out nicely...with ambushes, good monster placement and really nasty traps which you must avoid it at all costs. One thing that will help you a lot is the addition of a new weapon...seriously, that thing is powerful...check it out and try. Maps have a nice look that helps you to be inmersed in the atmosphere and coupled with the music, it's much better.   Great recommendation, give it a try and you'll have a fun time.

      Since I tested the map, I can say that playing it again it still surprises me the amount of effort and detail of the gameplay used, like a lot of portals, clever effects like the one used before you pick up the yellow key saying nope and many nice references including a special secret. Gameplay itself for combat is pretty straightforward with some nasty stuff for you in the Nightmare difficulty. Try that out by all means. Really solid stuff which I totally recommend you folks and play it.

      When first reading this wad's description I thought this will be a 1994 style map, where someone just tried to recreate his office building to shoot up his colleages. Boy, was I wrong!   Going Down emerged as one of my favourite megawads so far, with its very clever use of small to medium map space and interesting gameplay mechanics in every single map. The first couple of maps start innocent enough, but soon you will find yourself navigating literal crawl spaces, thinking about use of space and / or slight puzzle mechanics just before being thrown into hell itself and fighting for your life. Going Down is designed as a literal descent into hell, which was the most beautifully realized aspect of it. How every map slightly changes into a more and more hellish theme is just great, great design work. Even though the later maps delve into slaughter territory I must admit that I still quite enjoyed it. Actually this was the first time I enjoyed being slaugthered and figuring out how to approach the map.   Going Down is simply an amazing piece of work, oozing quality from start to finish and rewarding the player with incredible elevator music inbetween. A must play.
