Terrible design, mindless layouts, a lot of monsters which is fun for 5 minutes I'll admit that, but the overwhelming items make it way too easy. There's literally a Soulsphere around every corner. It's not an annoying map, it's just stupid.

Abysmal map that comes in three yet more or less the same versions of said map. The map includes many things wrong with 1994 WADs, including an excessive amount items all over the map, secret doors that require Keycards that are rather annoying to find, and overall confusing level design where you struggle to find the map exit, although quitting the game is perhaps preferable.

 

Much like many other WADs of its time, there is an emphasis on deathmatch but who would honestly want to frag their friends playing this? The map is bad regardless if you're playing alone or not.

      And thus, oh you know what I'm going to say already, Doom 64 for Doom II has been finished, played through GlBoom+ 2.5.1.5 on UV.   So for an introduction, as the name implies D64D2 is a recreation of the classic Doom 64 originally released as a console exclusive for the N64. It aims to recreate the levels along with their gameplay using mostly vanilla Doom II resources. It features a new menu background, ENDOOM screen, new music, a few new enemies, namely the Nightmare Imp and Cacodemon as well as the final boss the Mother Demon, a few new textures, new intermission messages, a new end level screen, but no custom sounds or weapons, meaning that the unique and iconic Unmaker was not recreated in any way.   For a recreation, I must say that the levels and their gameplay come quite close to the original Doom 64, nonetheless various liberties have been taken in different forms, ranging from new takes on various puzzles to completely new levels, as well as the usage of the enemies who were absent from the original due to memory limitations. The usage of enemies who were absent from the original game comes with mixed results as it doesn't always work, probably one of the most obvious flaws in the game. This is most noticeable primarily in the levels that came closest to their D64 counterpart as the environment was clearly not designed with them in mind. For instance, you'll encounter Revenants on narrow corridors quite often, and sometimes even Arch-Viles. This isn't a problem in larger areas where it's usually quite fun to fight them, but not in those particular areas. Chaingunners do seem to work quite well however since they can easily blend with the rest of the hitscanners.   Compared to the original D64, a major difference could be the tone and atmosphere of the game. D64 was slower paced and more atmospheric, whereas D64D2 is faster paced with less emphasis of that element, supported by the amazing but more action/fun oriented soundtrack. Perhaps the darker, much more hellish levels such as Unholy Temple are the most atmospheric levels in the entire game, and also the best looking. Unholy Temple is definitely my favorite level here.   While on the subject of changes, some of them are very interesting. In the Void is probably the most surprising for me. The original featured a light blue sky and a rather foggy atmosphere while the level itself was pretty bright, how does this map look like in D64D2? Well, it seems to literally take place in a void now. Indeed, the sky is now completely black, but luckily poor visibility was avoided, at least for the most part, so there's no difficulty in seeing the enemies and where they are. It's a change that works well, unlike others. The most drastic changes were probably done to The Absolution, where you can now find 3 keys, but you need to complete various puzzles to reach them, and not the exciting or fun type. The room with the yellow skull was probably the only fun one, the others? Well, for the red key you have to go through an awkward platforming section where everything, including the enemies are obviously, cloaked in darkness, while the blue key has a puzzle comparable to the room with the red key (Demon key on the original D64) on Outpost Omega, except that it's more tedious. Not exactly changes done for the better. I don't know how exactly they impact the level though, but in my playthrough I didn't even fight the Mother Demon, I just heard her screaming once while I was fighting the teleporting enemies thinking that she finally showed up, only for the end level screen to appear, so I assume she died somehow.   D64D2 also comes with some exclusive levels that were not part of the original D64, and I personally think they're little more than filler maps. They're not terrible, but not great either, and I can't find any reason for why they exist. Well, at least they're very short and straightforward, so you don't waste much time with them. And while being on the subject, some of the secret levels from the original have been turned into regular maps, meaning that you don't have to search for secret exits to reach them. One such example is Outpost Omega.   All things considered, D64D2 manages to capture the spirit of D64 while also making plenty of changes, yet generally remaining faithful to the original. Some changes might have been for the worse, but there's plenty done for the better as well. It's pretty short and easy, just like the original, so it can be finished in a day, you can't go wrong with it. A collective effort for an ambitious project that should be well worth your time if you like Doom 64 and want to see a different take on it.

      This one took me by surprise. Absolutely wonderful use of stock Doom 2 resources, great atmosphere / world building, and doesn't overstay its welcome. 5/5.

      Pretty cool couple of maps! Nice use of stock Doom 2 resources.

      Two pretty good maps from 1994 that have some interesting ideas in them that show the author wasn't afraid to experiment. With some minor changes these two levels could go from decent to good.
