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!)

Excellent megawad! Beautiful, fun to play, original, vanilla doom compatibility. This is the perfect mapset 5/5 - Sniper 109

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.

      Good maps, most of them ended up in Skulltag later on (as in, 2004-2005 lol). A solid wad that frankly deserves more play time, even in the year 2021.

      Sounds a lot better

      this really deserves much more attention than it gets! it definitely has its fair share of negatives like cryptic progression, symmetry, etc, but for the time it's actually very good. the visuals are very nice with interesting architecture and good lighting, and despite not being balanced for pistol start very well the combat is great fun nonetheless.

      it's like if the casali brothers got their hands on skillsaw's kamikaze soldiers   srsly tho, for 1995 this wad is pretty vicious. the moeller brothers love to throw some real nasty shit at you on the regular, but despite that it still remains very fun (albeit somewhat frustrating at times). the levels all look decent for 1995, and the spritework for the new enemies and textures is quite good as well. aside from a few specific things (the beginning of map06 for example) there's not really any genuinely bad things about the megawad. if you're a fan of older stuff then i highly recommend this mapset - it's not as refined as later stuff the moellers worked on like memento mori, but it's still great fun.

      a very fun mapset that, unfortunately, is plagued by a few bugs. it's mostly fine if you get the fix, but if you're unaware of it then it's gonna prevent you from progressing   it's a shame, because this really is a great mapset. it starts off somewhat standard but quickly becomes quite reminiscent of av's later levels. i highly recommend it if you're into that
