About This File

This WAD is my best one to date. Shadow/lighting effects, difficulty level support - the works. It makes a killer deathmatch wad and will work just fine for co-op and single play also. My goal was to defy the common opinion that you can't have a great deathmatch WAD and have it be fun to play co-op or solo also. Well, try this one! :) Comments, good and bad, are greatly appreciated.

WARNING: Ultra Violent is REALLY REALLY hard. If you can get through it without dying send me a LMP of it! I'd love to see you do it. It is NOT impossible, just very hard.

I dunno, the music and the sounds kinda blow (ride of the valkyries was cool in apocaclypse now, but in a doom level?), and it was more chaotic, throw-the-kitchen-si nk-at-you than inspired. III out of V - GreazyShorts

This is dated February 1995. For the period it's excellent; a non-linear planetary techbase that leaves you free to wander around. It's badly marred by the fact the mandatory blue key is inside an unmarked secret inside a large dark maze; you'd never find it without IDBEHOLDA. Nonetheless it's great fun on UV, very knockabout, loads of monsters and infighting. The new door sounded reminded me of a revenant, which made me jumpy.

Outstanding map, with excellent action from start to finish. The map is highly non-linear, and the player will be under fire from all sides for most of the time. Good thinking and use of the resources is needed. Until you know the layout, UV is tough even for experienced players, so consider starting out with skill 2 or 3. This map encapsulates exactly what makes Doom great.

Not that bad, considering its age. It's also quite a challenge on UV. The only flaws are the wierd secrets and the sometimes confusing level progression (which is because this map was intended as a good DM map also). Scott went on to make two maps for "Memento Mori" after this... --3/5

      Umm... this isnt Doom 64? Or even remotely related to it?   In addition, its a shitty wad. You are expected to fight 2 arch-viles with a pistol, and then a cyberdemon witha  chaingun in an enclosed space.

      Should have been called "Doom 64 for Boom".   I really wanted to like this more. I mean, I do like it but I feel like the gripes I have regarding it just bring my overall rating for it down too much.   It was interesting to see how, at first, the authors recreated the Doom 64 levels in Doom 2 with just vanilla assets. You can still see some of that in the Boom levels like how revenants and arch-viles are used in place of where traps where. That was an interesting touch and I liked that.   As I got further into it though and more of the Boom tricks were used my thoughts wandered from "hey this is a nice vanilla interpretation" to "man I could be playing Doom 64 EX or Doom 64 Retribution". I really wish they would have stuck with vanilla constraints for this reinterpretation. I would have liked to see how they would have handed nightmare monster placement (would a nightmare imp be worth two imps or three, for example). I feel like using Boom and DeHacked cheapened the experience, like they were trying to replicate Doom 64 as close as possible rather than doing a vanilla Doom (2) interpretation.   Additionally, map 30 can fuck right the hell off with that puzzle bullshit.   Anyway, if you don't mind any of the complaints I made, you'll likely have fun with this. I got some fun out of this as well but to me it feels like it's trying to be exactly like Doom 64 rather than simply a vanilla Doom 2 interpretation of Doom 64. In trying to be exactly like Doom 64, it just makes me want to play that more than this.

      Pretty good. The combat was fun and design wasn't bad at all.

      Despite its age, nice details and well designed. Way how blue key is hidden is really clever. But map is dark and cramped. Enemies are only imps and hitscanners.
