About This File

This is the sequel to my old megawad "Scythe". Expect better looking and bigger levels. unfortunately, the last 3 levels are missing, because I am so lazy and I haven't been satisfied with my attempts at making map28. I _might_ release the last 3 maps some time in the future, but do not count on it. (Update: the last 3 maps are now completed!)

Good megawad: I like the progression between the different themes. Started out a bit easy. The middle bits are the best. The later sections (some of the green vine stuff) isn't much fun: invuln + archie battles are boring imho. Well done Eric!

Another awesome wad, even though it is missing 3 maps. Gnerally more medium-large levels than the original Scythe but still some small ones. Like the original, all maps look and play great (and as mentioned the average map size is bigger) even though the last couple maps are REALLY hard. There are also far more custom textures in this wad than in Scythe I, and each episode (5 maps, except the final episode which is Map26-27) has a unique and well done theme. The secret levels are cool too. 5/5

I like it a bit better than Scythe 1, but...it's still not that great. I mean, it gets better towards the end, but, overall, there's something about the gameplay or design or whatever that doesn't grab my attention. It feels...very stale almost all the time, and I've played a lot of WADs. 3/5

Alright, this is seriously on the number one spot of best WADs ever for me. The gameplay is crazy and gradually gets harder and harder. The amount of detail and layout is insane and I so wish I had this super creativity with mapping like this author has. My most favorite maps are 8, 12, 14, 17, 25, 27 and map16 scared the living shit out of me. But then again, there was not one map I didn't like. I also loved that modified Afrit which adds even more to the difficulty. Just...pure awesomeness.

Started out as a very excellent Megawad, after about map07, it was all downhill... gameplay wise. These levels get so ridiculously stupid; expect to have cyberdemons teleporting behind you at a seemingly empty exit, or immediately killing you from behind when you start a new level. Map28 had the best gameplay of all the levels in this series. 3/5 for effort, and purdy looking graphics. Gameplay way harder than AV, near impossible in some spots.

Some absolutely stunning maps in here. This is just as good as Scythe, but for different reasons. The difficulty is reasonable up until MAP23, when it suddenly shoots up to near ridiculousness. MAP27 is maybe my favorite map ever. 5/5

To the person who had trouble exiting level 25: you are supposed to do a suicide exit by aiming your rocket launcher at a close-up wall and shooting at it while you are about to backpedal, killing yourself and eventually sliding into the exit. Anyways, awesome wad.

A stylish, violent sequel to one of the best WADs of all time, Scythe 2 explores six different themes, neatly organized in 5-map episodes. The maps are generally bigger and far more difficult than in Scythe, which effects a different playing experience than its predecessor did (UV is not for casual players, beware!). Even so, the gameplay is highly addictive and everything looks gorgeous. Though I could've done without the new monsters this is nothing short of legendary. Highly recommended. --5/5

I found it boring. Sure the architecture is pretty striking, but there are better. I found the levels to be repetitive in both gameplay and visuals, and the last levels were insane. I really never liked playing a level during more than battling 1000+ enemies with all I've got just to find out the next level is just the same. It's just tiring, not entertaining.

The text file says that nightmare skill is only for the pros. There is no FUCKING way that anyone could play this on nightmare skill level. These are some of the hardest levels I have ever played. Everything looks nice and detailed and if you play on AV you will die. 7/28/07

^ Be challenging does not make it boring. Just the opposite, easy maps do Doom boring. Do you know that there are skill levels? When someone cant't finish a wad on UV say that the wad is insane, or boring. Skill levels are designed for every kind of people, but people dont want to say they cant finish a map in UV. 6/5 for the best balanced megawad all times.

Excellent megawad. The detail and challenge was superb. The two new monsters were extremely deadly (ESPECIALLY the first one you run into; they are FAST). I really liked it. The only shortfall is that megawad is not finished; levels 28. 29 and 30 are not completed yet. I sure hope Erik completes the rest of those levels. Other than that, it was completely worth it to play. I recommend you download it.

Oh yeah I hated it after it was released :) no kidding I just didn't like the miniepisode idea, nowadays I just don't like some maps. (about 10 of them) I am not talking about little mistakes such as text. alignments (who cares?) or something but about the maps and layouts in general, some of them simply should be better.But, damn, kick me for my opinions :) scythe2 is an excellent work overall with some excellent and some worse maps, and I am calling it: legendary, so it truly deserves 5/5.

      Lots of traps and monster closets. Some switches are activated by shooting but there's nothing to really tell you about this because they look the same as other switches.   Texturing is good and enemy placement proved rather difficult at times. There aren't may health pickups on UV so it was a fight to get through.

      It's pretty good for 1994. If you don't mind having no health items at all (except in a few maps) and the outrageous amounts of cyberdemons per map, you should give it a try. It's pretty challenging and I like it. E2M3 is a bit 'eh...' though.

      What the actual f*ck is this map. I love having 4 rockets, a shit ton of bullets and like 10 shotgun shells to take out a revenant, and whatever was in that cage. Doesn't look too bad, maybe this negativity is cus im no expert, also rather unskilled at the game?

      thank god Underhalls was the map that followed this mod as that level was able to remind me what actually competent level design looks like.

      Not that bad, even kind of interesting find the secrets in the map! But yeah, that switches jungle is a awful choice really.
