About This File

A sequel to the first Island, again, a tropical forest, but this time with a much larger indoor area. Plus it runs faster.

not really a fan of those custom monsters, but overall, the wad was alright. the outdoor areas and the cave (where that crusher segment was) are cool, the indoors parts had much more combat and felt a lot tougher. pretty fun except with the boss fights.

Quite nice work, but feels more like tech demo than serious map. Somehow I didn't like several new monsters and some fights.

Overuse of new monsters

The outdoor part is still utterly boring so n/c about it. But the base area... with the added health and ammo there's some excellent gameplay there. Really tense but not for a moment annoying. And the boss fight is perfect. 3/5 for the outdoors, 5/5 for the base. 42 minutes playtime. 4/5 - Belial

For all the reviewers who think anything new sucks. You are fucking retarded. What's overused? The same Doom 2 stock textures over and over and over and over and over again, all in the name of OMG!!! CLASSIC WAD!!!! Fucking gay, this wad rocks for its originality and aesthetics alone. Yes gameplay is important, but I don't think the gameplay is that bad here... 5/5 Jason, and good job. (Good job on that damn bridge, too! That took some fucking work!) 5/5 I, personally loved it!

It's nice, but first one was somewhat better. Maybe novelty value. Anyway, outdoor sections are a bit boring, indeed - base is cool, but boss fights suck. Flying hamster at the end had problems with leaving his swimming pool, got killed quickly. Or maybe my zdoom is b0rked. However, 4/5 coz it's still class -- Brun Ohn (poster above - it's better to paste bollocks in Hungarian, French is cliche)

I think the Doom2 monsters are overused. :/ Great atmosphere, I love rainy, natural feeling areas like that. Dark but not evil. Just gloomy. I wish the outside area was longer this time, but I liked how it was segmented into three (I think) outside areas instead of one giant one. The base was cool with all the lookouts in the hallways. Very neat feeling. Love this map. Even more than the first one.

An okay level, ignore the comments calling it overdetailed and slow. The map is actually kinda bland by modern standards. Its filled with old custom monsters designed for an older version of zdoom, and for some reason the sound desyncs badly. A good resource if you want tree and plant sprites. 2/5

(=3=) I needed the sprites. Thanks. (+1) Sprite Ripping and re-coloring are in full effect. (-1) A tad bit bland for modern standards (-1) Sound desync (-1). 1/5. ~That guy over there

Cool map, but those Monster Resource Wad monsters are really annoying and overused. 3/5

Excellent base area, outdoor areas had great atmosphere (could've use them more extensively). The "Crushing Factory"-part was awesome. More please. 5/5

Great WAD - a worthy successor to the first part!

Take away all the detail and atmosphere (which slows down many PCs), and you're left with a map with 1994-level gameplay - huge open areas, boring corridors, with overpowered DEHACKED monsters and almost no weapons or places to hide for cover.

A nice map, atmospheric, but a bit too dark for my taste, a few times really crowded with HARD demons (snakeimps, blackimps, stoneimps, warlord-whatevers, boss ...) and few health, ammo randomly spread through the jungle, and then I wonder what's so special that it wants zdoom 2.96. And some music a few times might've been a nice addidtion, too. But the base is quite decent and overall a good sequel to Island 1. A fair 3.75/5.

I agree with the second reviewer. Looks nice and all, but really nothing interesting to actually play. I'm getting annoyed with those darn overpowered Monster Resource Wad monsters too. 3/5

      Superb firework display of thousands of fireballs seeming in slow motion because of the vastness - mostly avoidable as they land where you were ages ago; but worth playing just to see it. A HUGE square surrounded by tiers with hundreds of imps and a few others, plus a blockhouse you can enter first to collect ammo.  Fighting through the hundreds of monsters when you get onto the tiers is another matter, overwhelming at UV. I cheated to finish so at least I could review.  Some HOM bugs.

      Laggy hell with 32k monsters and too much invulnerability spheres. Just... total vomit.

      Insanity, with voodoo dolls (see second screenshot).  I get the idea of a shooting gallery if that rocks your boat, but 6000 monsters behind railings- as far as the eye can see, FFS! My PC crawled when I looked towards the invuln spheres (someone said 32 k of them and you can't avoid picking up thousands at a time). In the end I cheated with god mode and no-clipping, and waded in among the chaingunners until I got bored.

      Simple, clearly a first wad.  All on the flat with big, brightly lit, and architecturally implausible rooms. The first map has two rooms, the second map one, and the third map one plus a kind of exit lobby. You can do one of two things - just run past the monsters and finish (I did it in 35 seconds), or have a bit of fun killing the monsters first. No noticable bugs. I hope the author will go on (or went on) to greater things.
