About This File

If you where sitting at you home, and portals to hell suddenly opened up around you, what kind of weapons do you think you'd end up with? BFGs? Plasma rifles? Rocket launchers? Heck no. You'd probably be lucky if you found a good pistol. The idea of this weapons kit is to see how you'd fare if the only weapons you had are ones you'd find around your local neighbourhood.

Not the best weapons wad I've played, but not the worst, either. The BFG being replaced with a sniper rifle is a bit odd, and there's no Super Shotgun replacement at all. The rest of the weapons are decent, though I wouldn't recommend playing this on Skulltag. For some reason, the flamethrower damages you without shooting out any flames, and Imps hurt themselves when throwing fireballs (with no fireballs being launched, of course). 3/5

First off, when you say "weapons you can find in your local neighbourhood," I wonder what sort of neighborhood you live in; mine sure doesn't have guns of any kind, or dynamite, or a flamethrower. That being said, this is a well made mod. The dynamite was great, and I especially liked the rifle. However, in the future, make sure you write a better description :P. 4/5

It's uhh... set in a mining town. mining towns have dynamite. And the flame thrower is one of thoes things that firemen use to burn off scrub to stop bushfires... yeah! See! Easy. Alright. The flamethrower was originally going to be a Molotov cocktail, but throwing weapons are hard to make, and I got lazy, and making a plasmarifle into a flame thrower is so easy and... and... *sob* :C

Given that if there was a demon invasion, it is suggested in the original levels that you are somebody who stumbled upon a high tech base. This means that there should be at least a couple of higher tech weapons than there are; completely realistic weapons doesn't make for the best "realistic" weapons mod. It's like MW2, they tried to be as realistic as possible and you know how everyone feels about that game.

      Doesn't like the layout and monster replacements, I didn't found RL until got the yellow key and found a lot of rockets, the location where RL is confusing me, and it also not fun when you get kicked down from the cliffs by Revenants, Mancubus and Archviles after the way to Blue key door, the way to the teleporter just far enough to kill you if not killed by monsters which kicked you down. Final timed puzzle room just nasty as the cyberdemon and archvile fights in the same place, not sure why make the level so big but can't make the fights with them also on bigger place too?   It's not bad level but I'm sure the frustration level is sky high, and not sure the slopes from ZDooM do anything good to this level too.

      Normally, I don't like DooM (1 or UD) WADs because I tired shooting baddies with shotgun as most of them tend put a lot of shotgun guys/ammo and I have shot those full of shotty shit...well, this one can't escaped from that but I found author's tricky as I didn't found many of them(or they placed when I needed to use shotty), also the monster placements(with middle-tier ones) in this megawad helped too, even E1 doesn't suffers low-tier ammo-droping-fest unlike IWAD and most PWADs.   Level layouts and theme are interesting, some E3 levels just a little mazed but I feel okay, never get lost...many levels I feel plays like IWAD but better and larger, you'll found middle-tier monsters in E1 levels and it helps the gameplay, unlike the IWAD you'll have too much ammo in every level even pistol start, if you wasted too much and will out of ammo for sure(at least in UV).   All I can say about this megawad is...fun,  vanilla fun. Except E3M8, the yellow key area with platforming when all enemies + 4 cyberdemons are try to kill me and battles-of-deal-with-4-cyberdemons-or/and-other-powerful-monsters are nasty to me, on top of them, the final "BOSS"...I feel trolled...really? IoS-style?? IT'S ****ING DOOM, NOT DOOM 2 WHY USE IOS-STYLE AS FINAL BOSS?!  :P (At least there is no respawning monster cubes just annoying cyberdemons and barons...but they're still give me a lot of headaches as the battle area isn't very huge and a little cramped I think...)   But at least IDMUS11 helps me dealt with those problems all, for some reasons I feel the main theme of Power Ranger does fit DooM...don't know why but I keep switch to the theme with IDMUS11 cheat if I don't like the level's music, helps me blast through this megawad and the nasty E3M8. :P

      Download the REAL file here (rd1.zip is NOT correct) https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/levels/doom2/megawads/d64d2   Shocked to see so many negative reviews. I had an absolute blast with this one, and I'm not sure what Nems was talking about with the Boom stuff as this runs in Doom2.exe with no trouble. In fact, there is a TON of impressive vanilla stuff going on here. I guess it was so well done that it tricked him.   This deserves a high score. It's a lot of fun.

      It definitely makes Doom look darker, but also slightly changes colors (it reminds me PSX Doom). I prefer original Doom colors and miss how it looked on CRT (almost same colors as with modern monitors, but less brightness and maybe more contrast).

      Great spirit/item placements, and also nice trap placements. Textures are georgeous and scream "1980's sci-fi action movie".
