About This File

A total conversion set in the mid-50's on a weapons research base deep in the heart of Greenland. You thought this would be a nice boring way to finish your career as a Marine.

You thought wrong. (see cah_manual.pdf for the full story)

"I could never find the code for the door blocking the flamethrower. Is that area a trick, or something?" My automatic interpretation of "find another way to open it" was "shoot the lock". It worked.

Atmospheric as hell and terrific game feel. Worst part about it is going back and forth across huge maps looking for items and trying to remember where they are used.

I really enjoyed the visual design and the plot (and all the little details). Unfortunately, this mod is still buggy for me -- it always locks up when I reach the radio in the abandoned base. I get the text screen, but it doesn't return me back to normal play. I stay frozen in that little side room and I've tried everything including noclip, etc. So it looks like I'll never get to see the end of this mod, which is a big disappointment given how much I enjoyed it up to that point.

Without a single goddamn doubt this wad will remain legendary. I love the mod to this day and can't stop thinking of how cool it'd look as a movie. It has all the plot elements for a perfect shoot.

Sometimes it really scared the shit outta me. Great TC with few minor bugs (some dialogues go away too quick, some battles are rather hard, some rare reloading/shooting mess). Very atmospheric and freezing cold. Absolutely recommended. 4,5/5 Cacodemon

Well, let's get the bad out of the way first. 1) Occasional pitch black areas, 3 or 4 of them a necessary visit 2) Slow framerate with snow enabled 3) Around one to three seconds of gameplay lost upon loading some savegames. Aside from that, this is a wonderful TC, still worth a rounded 5 stars. Of course, I still wonder, I could never find the code for the door blocking the flamethrower. Is that area a trick, or something?

Dang, Son....this was an epic, epic story. I mean, I was on the edge of my seat pratically from the start! Thrilling, sometimes eerie, music makes everything work perfectly for the frozen, desolate base. And the gameplay is erratic, but still fun and engaging. There's a lot to do, but that's the beauty of it--it's heavily involved, not just "kill the monsters, get keys, find the exit, repeat." And the ending (after the final battle), is so chilling. Very well done! Do you plan on making a sequel? ;)

Very great TC. I felt like I was playing a doom version of The Thing. Very engaging story.

Probably the most professional project to date, and very damn good too. Easily comparable to Void and other unique great wads. I will concede that it is very difficult though 5* -Phobus

Really mmersive plot implementation: notes and recordings draw you in, voice acting is actually good! Custom weapons suited the wad very well, though custom monsters were merely small variations on the originals & not much variety really. Thought gameplay was balanced enough but sometimes marred by item hunting, though objectives are a VERY nice change from flat-out keyhunts. Does realistic mapping really well, but arguably some areas are left looking a bit bland. Even has two small vehicle sequences! 4/5

Very, very good TC. It has an intriguing story to tell and the gameplay is great aside from some item-hunting. Has support for ZDoom and GZDoom, and includes a software-renderer version.

This would have been so much better if it was possible to disable the dialogue boxes that almost totally block your view for a couple of seconds each time anything happens...

Cold as Hell is a fantastic Doom conversion. It has plenty of new artwork to feel "new", and the hub maps create a sense of non linearity... even though you have pretty defined goals. The worst part is the difficulty, this mod is VERY hard even on the easiest setting. I'm VERY glad the SE version was released, now it's possible to play this mod in its entirety.

Wonderful, wonderful game in itself, really. It's a lot different from Doom, as the enemies are much more able to hurt you badly, and your weapons, while more effective, require more skill to use properly. The balance is great, and the atmosphere, storyline, and background are fantastic. 5/5

      Doesn't like the layout and monster replacements, I didn't found RL until got the yellow key and found a lot of rockets, the location where RL is confusing me, and it also not fun when you get kicked down from the cliffs by Revenants, Mancubus and Archviles after the way to Blue key door, the way to the teleporter just far enough to kill you if not killed by monsters which kicked you down. Final timed puzzle room just nasty as the cyberdemon and archvile fights in the same place, not sure why make the level so big but can't make the fights with them also on bigger place too?   It's not bad level but I'm sure the frustration level is sky high, and not sure the slopes from ZDooM do anything good to this level too.

      Normally, I don't like DooM (1 or UD) WADs because I tired shooting baddies with shotgun as most of them tend put a lot of shotgun guys/ammo and I have shot those full of shotty shit...well, this one can't escaped from that but I found author's tricky as I didn't found many of them(or they placed when I needed to use shotty), also the monster placements(with middle-tier ones) in this megawad helped too, even E1 doesn't suffers low-tier ammo-droping-fest unlike IWAD and most PWADs.   Level layouts and theme are interesting, some E3 levels just a little mazed but I feel okay, never get lost...many levels I feel plays like IWAD but better and larger, you'll found middle-tier monsters in E1 levels and it helps the gameplay, unlike the IWAD you'll have too much ammo in every level even pistol start, if you wasted too much and will out of ammo for sure(at least in UV).   All I can say about this megawad is...fun,  vanilla fun. Except E3M8, the yellow key area with platforming when all enemies + 4 cyberdemons are try to kill me and battles-of-deal-with-4-cyberdemons-or/and-other-powerful-monsters are nasty to me, on top of them, the final "BOSS"...I feel trolled...really? IoS-style?? IT'S ****ING DOOM, NOT DOOM 2 WHY USE IOS-STYLE AS FINAL BOSS?!  :P (At least there is no respawning monster cubes just annoying cyberdemons and barons...but they're still give me a lot of headaches as the battle area isn't very huge and a little cramped I think...)   But at least IDMUS11 helps me dealt with those problems all, for some reasons I feel the main theme of Power Ranger does fit DooM...don't know why but I keep switch to the theme with IDMUS11 cheat if I don't like the level's music, helps me blast through this megawad and the nasty E3M8. :P

      Download the REAL file here (rd1.zip is NOT correct) https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/levels/doom2/megawads/d64d2   Shocked to see so many negative reviews. I had an absolute blast with this one, and I'm not sure what Nems was talking about with the Boom stuff as this runs in Doom2.exe with no trouble. In fact, there is a TON of impressive vanilla stuff going on here. I guess it was so well done that it tricked him.   This deserves a high score. It's a lot of fun.

      It definitely makes Doom look darker, but also slightly changes colors (it reminds me PSX Doom). I prefer original Doom colors and miss how it looked on CRT (almost same colors as with modern monitors, but less brightness and maybe more contrast).

      Great spirit/item placements, and also nice trap placements. Textures are georgeous and scream "1980's sci-fi action movie".
