About This File

An add-on sequel for Final DOOM's "The Plutonia Experiment". It emulates Plutonia's design and gameplay styles and follows from where it left off.

Very good megawad - the only problems being the music (they should've stuck with the traditional Doom/Doom II music used in The Plutonia Experiment exclusively rather than some of that awful new music) and they should've stuck with artwork included with the original Plutonia rather than the new additional artwork (menu and title graphics aside) as some of those 'UAC' doors look worse than the original to be honest. Otherwise a terrific wad.

Whoever gives this wad less than 5/5 is seriously retarded. Great wad, thanks for all the hard work! 5/5

I'm gonna be honest, I didn't really dig it. The maps were all too drab for me. It didn't really give me the Plutonia vibe when I played it, and I never found myself interested in playing for too long. Granted, some maps were interesting and overall it was very well done, but it just didn't tickle my fancy in the way the first Plutonia did. 3/5

I have no idea what anyone sees in this wad; it seems very badly designed to me. It suffers too much from forced pickups, details that only get in the way, somewhat cramped conditions, full-black textures, needless barriers, and "where the heck do I go NOW?" syndrome. Also, is there any real *need* to disable jumping and crouching? Just use barriers to prevent sequence breaking; don't arbitrarily disable new features- that's annoying.

My only complaint is the random bugs here and there. Some music is annoying too. Aside from that, some really impressive work have been put in here.

Very good, more detailed than Plutonia 1, but it has it bad parts: At times this is more influenced from hell revealed (for the ridiculous amount of monsters in certain maps) than plutonia. Also, sometimes you have no idea what a switch does. Also, some of the music was lame, Also, uhm, did I say also? oh well, this is very good, it is just not as good as plutonia 1 was. 4/5

This was better and harder than the original Loved it! Fun and challenging it's for hardcore doomers not for new comers and/or weak players My best wad so far 6/5 i hope to see something like Plutonia 3 or TNT 2

To above reviewer, full black textures? You're supposed to play in with The Plutonia Experiment, not DOOM2.WAD!

Presumably I'll step on many toes, but IHMO this is awfully overrated. Layout is too often too cramped, frequent use of black textures is an ambiance killer, monster placement is often very cheap, and the gameplay lacks besides hard at some points, almost all subtlety. Overall: I was given the sky-high ratings, very disappointed, I've played a *lot* of maps which are on many aspects much, much better than this. Small 4* for the amount of effort for a mapset I'll presumably never play again.

We live in a different era here and I feel that this is the plutonia sequel. The Casali Borthers brought in a higher level of difficulty compared to the maps at the time. The sequel in today's dooming world should offer a greater challenge as so it does. Many levels are simply excellent and few are of average quality. Has to be 5 stars, cannonball

It's a crime to give this anything less than a 5/5.

One of the best megawads, maybe it may not be as good as PRCP but still kicks ass! 3/5

An amazing extension of the first Plutonia that leaves the players satisfied with the depth, feel, and play of every map.

IMO this is the best wad with classical gameplay in mind.I especially love the open level design;in this regard the PL2 team makes commercial FPSs look like a joke.This has exceeded my expectations.Not only do the maps look great and are tremendous fun, but it is obvious they were also designed with speedruns and maxkills in mind, which will make PL2 a long-cherished marvel.My only gripe is that the creativity could have been slightly higher:PL1 had a very high number of unique ideas during its germination

The levels were well constructed adding a nice intrest to the levels, however, the biggest critiscism is the emphasis adding on difficulty which makes the levels way too difficult. There does need to be difficulty, trying to gain elements of Plutonia but this setting makes it practically impossible

      This could've been one of the first 32 level megawads that I played after completing the base games. I've played many more since then, and I can honestly say, for a megawad dating back to 1996, it still holds up brilliantly against a lot of modern wads.    Also @DoomGuy999, about that criticism about maps being coop exclusive... "Most levels were made for co-op play, all levels are playable alone as well."   Not exactly sure what you were expecting after having an explicit statement right there.

      This is a fine map with a lot of work put in it. I really liked the attention to details and the overall atmosphere of the map. The intended  path is a bit hard to decipher at times, but it ends on a high note.

      I don't hate it. It's simple and easy, but also clearly designed instead of just slapped together, even if the author is a beginner mapper from the mid-90s.

      A neat older megaWAD that was made predominately for co-op play:   From the readme:   "Most levels were made for co-op play, all levels are playable alone as well."   It clearly states this, but some people seem confused by this fact, somehow.   Plays just fine in SP, and is how I've played it the three times I've gone through it now.   Yes, it shows its age a bit in 2024, but what WAD from this era doesn't? Features a great soundtrack, too.   Easy 4/5, even in the current climate.

      I really enjoyed the adventure that The Artifact takes you on. The levels are grandiose and intricate, full of interesting set pieces and somewhat obscure secrets. On UV, the difficulty is quite high and unforgiving. The icon of sin fight is a bit too complex for my tastes. Nevertheless, it shows a splendid mastery of design and progression.
