I wanted to like this since it purports to be Doom 64-inspired (a game I love), but unfortunately it doesn't hit the mark at all. Very few stock Doom 2 textures have been replaced. The monster sprites are all D64 rips, but only some of the sounds have been changed. The weapon sprites are rips too, but their animations are pretty poor. And overall it fails to capture the atmosphere of D64, having a rock & roll MIDI soundtrack and almost all bright lighting. Beyond the failure to emulate D64, the level design is simply not fun. There are way too many doors, half of which require a switch yet have zero distinguishing features - meaning you'll constantly be stopping to open doors, half of the time not even being able to progress. And the switches to open those doors are in completely random locations, meaning you never know exactly where to go next - just that you have to backtrack somewhere. Overall not at all an enjoyable experience.

I hate Doom 64, so I don't like this one... You have to be a real Doom 64 freak to find this interesting. 2/5, because the level alone looks good.

It has good action and funny doom64 gfx but it had me running around because a button opened some random door that is not connected for the 20th time. Ugh! Or is it trying to mock the Doom64 gameplay (I haven't played it but one level and I remember something similar :P) 3/5 - Optimus

It was okay for a DooM 64 based map, couldn't really get into it much. 3/5.-Candle M

This map is broken... It seems you start at the exit, and taking 2 steps forward ends the level.

Open the zip, extract the pk3 file, rename pk3 to *.zip, open said zip and extract Crimson.wad. Now edit Crimson.wad in your favourite editor and move the player1 start to where the player 2, 3 & 4 are... it's actually a pretty good map without all the other *.wad's added (in my opinion). This is a 4 maybe a 5 star wad, but only 3 due to cataclysmic error. 3/5

      Classic funny little skin, still used in servers to this day so I think it deserves some love.   I like that the voice clip says “WHERE ARE A MY PANTS?”

      More an exercise in 3-d artwork than a game. Just someone's bedroom with a HK in a tiny lobby outside the door, and a Caco in a tiny yard outside the window. A BFG and Invisibilty Sphere are also in the yard but you can't get out there. I think the name is a clue - maybe this was the start of a bigger level, then abandoned. He ought to have allowed it as a base for development.

      Starts with all monsters with their backs to you, and you might as well leave it that way and just listen to the music. One big rectangular room with no finish switch. They couldn't even make the rectangle properly - freehand I guess. Kill the monsters if you want, it's easy.

      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.
