Playability notes: Requires ZDoom-based ports to function. All maps are technically made for pistol start, but continuous is recommended.

 

The Community is Falling 2 is a sequel to the first installment and, while the story is more dramatic and refined, the gameplay takes an entirely different approach that at least entertains those with an open mind. As something of a jokewad the idea plays out similarly, with the player needing to cleanup the mess of what can only be described as "forum drama", and after a brief introduction is thrust into no more than three encounters across three maps. Also similar are the return of the "newb" enemy, basically a Demon with sometimes more speed.

 

Overall, these maps should be considered gameplay puzzles. The first is a matter of finding where to go with the least necessary movement; the second is a matter of understanding available space and being able to quickly analyze your surroundings; the third is an extreme test against enemy AI. All of them are simplistic in their approach and none of them are easy, so they very quickly turn into a practice-until-perfect scenario and generally lack replay value.

 

Least interesting is the first fight, which distills into getting in the correct position and holding down the fire button. Most interesting is the second fight, as it plays out uniquely in the form of BFG-spam that must be tightly controlled to stay alive. The most frustrating by far is the third fight (if you don't have a megasphere's worth of health left over) and is basically the previous final boss but with a single pillar for cover: one's personal enjoyment may vary here, as this is an incredibly precise dance with little room for error.

 

Ultimately, because the fights don't align with vanilla gameplay but are oddly fine-tuned regardless, I can't recommend this to most. Try it out if you're interested in a change-up, but don't feel obligated to see it through to the end.

I don't see how this is possible without cheats. Especially on my old ass computer where it runs at roughly 4fps during the big battles. Still, the second map (Planetdoom) is really nice and it's funny overall. Poor Half-Life2 fans.

I love those humorous shit even if I am not informed about the inside jokes. We have BFG 9000 which can beat your gravity gun =)

What a letdown. The levels are short, the boss battles are either unexciting (MAP05) or way too freaking hard (MAP04), and it is nowhere near as fun as its predecessor. I was going to give it 3 stars but in fact i can't see myself giving this above 2/5. The end screen was funny though. MEH

I don't know how anyone could possibly give this wad anything lower then a 4. This isn't just some crappy jokewad. This is an epic masterpiece that pushes the limits of Zdoom so well that it almost puts RTC-3057 to shame. You've done good Kaiser... You've done good...

Heh. What a nice one. Well, I'm also still "stuck" with DooM, and no HL2 could change that. I don't even bother playing a game that has such a lot of copy crap and stuff on it. Well, Microsoft-Fanboys they are at Valve.

      Some very cool techbases with a nice texture set and pallette.  The music is pretty epic.  And it all runs in vanilla! (Or so it is said, I played it in GZDoom)

      I honestly can't believe that this whole megawad is 100% vanilla compatible and its only the first of THREE episodic megawads! Esselfortium and her team of creative energetic mappers has done an amazing job from the unique texture set, the music, the maps & even the tweaked color palette that fits the mood of the whole thing.    100% highly recommended! 5/5

      A pretty straightforward map to run through, packing in tons of enemies in rooms both big and small. Most of the monsters you'll be killing are E1 monsters such as Zombiemen and Imps, so while there isn't much in monster variety, there are plenty of ways to get them to fight each other which I like. It might be better to try and get as many monsters to start attacking at the same time since once you get the Chaingun, not even the groups of Spectres are much of a threat. Overall though, the map is still fun to blast through if you just want to kill tons of monsters in packs.

      this is a strange wad, with assets similar to Darkest Hour and other Star Wars-themed wads, many of the maps focus on small killings, as most of the maps are actually small. Pinchy's finale sure makes this worth it. oh yeah, quite a few custom stuff was done. the flamethrower marines were quite annoying, while other monsters gained multiple attacks, new ones, it's all so zany. the maps are pretty well done overall and this is worth a try.

      Okay, I get it, it's a megawad mainly for speedrunners who are intricately familiar with the mechanics of the game down to the nitty-gritty. A series of challenges/obstacles that, for the most part, seem to be possible but are generally ludicrous (and sometimes outright laughable, in a good way).   This was is not a "pile of junk" as a few have said however it's really, really lacking in a lot of ways. I get that the wad is meant to have a fun-and-not-serious tone despite it's overall extreme difficulty but the texturing looks like the insides of a toilet bowl after a Taco Bell buffet. Seriously, these maps are jealous of how beautiful and futuristic maps like UAC_DEAD look. The DWANGO series looks like fucking Ancient Aliens compared to this.   The MIDIs are lighthearted, silly and fun, which adds a layer of appeal for me personally. I loved seeing Patrick Stewart at the intermission too, rofl   I had some fun with this IDCLEVing through the whole wad and giving each map a try or 2 before moving on to the next but I seriously doubt I'll ever be back. The same idea with better texturing and overall taking itself just a tiny bit more seriously would warrant a higher rating. Ass-ugly texturing, silly MIDIs and a silly titlepic/interpic are fun in their own right so don't take me the wrong way but a lot of it crossed into "looks like the authors gave 0 fucks" category and I just have to take points away for that.   Also,   lol wtf is this bullshit is this a terrywad or somethin i mean jeeeezus   Overall, this is worth a peek just for some fun but unless you're a highly skilled speedrunner that also doesn't mind looking into a crapchute map after map, this probably doesn't really have much for you.
