Now this wad is sorta conflicting, for one if you suffer from any of the following problems: lack of ammo,regenerating health,the maps,multiple deaths. You can't play doom for shit but the i also have issues with this wad.

 

1. The doom 3 type design disgusts me, mainly because i don't like doom 3 that much

 

2. I hate the painkiller esque moments

 

3. It's unfinished and dead

 

That's all.

 

RATING:3/10

Pretty awful: uninspired, square layouts; boring, repetitive hordes; bad map design which leads to accidental telefragging by monsters; questionable sound design. Half of the time in a map is spent trying to figure out where to go in the map because the automap does not work and there is little sensible layout of the maps (plus some access points are hidden and difficult to discern). Earns 1 star just because of decent graphics, but that's about all that's decent in this wad.

Awful experience. I'm giving it two stars due to nice visuals & decent map designs but this is where the positives stop.

 

The quadruple shotgun's controls suck. Primary firing mode fires barrels separately while secondary fires all four simultaneously. If ONLY one shell is missing in the shotgun, pressing the secondary button will reload the gun instead of firing the rest three shells inside. Also, firing all four shells with a primary button won't actually reload the weapon. In fact, the game will tell you to reload, so you have to press the secondary fire button just to reload it.

 

Regular shotgun has a huge spread. Heck, no weapon is good at taking enemies down from a distance in this mod.

Pistol is absent & the weapon keys are oddly placed. '2' slot is a regular & super shotgun, '3' is quad shotgun, '4' is a chaingun & chaingun with rocket launcher mounted on it & '5' is a plasma rifle.

Most of the time, I got confused with these buttons & at the worst moments, like places with hordes of enemies, I took quite a punishment for switching weapons nonstop due to the weird design, causing large annoyance.

 

The author stated that it is basically Doom 3 with classic gameplay. Well, I assure you that the mod's amazing ambiance & atmosphere is destroyed by so much enemy spam, cheap moments & strange weapon keys, it's ridiculous. The AI's behavior is also modified. Zombies have sliding attack to surprise you & some new attacks are implemented into enemies. Not a bad thing but combined with the flaws mentioned above...yeah. Not fun.

 

Enemy spam or hordes are usually either frustrating to fight or just plain tedium & borefest. I'm not too keen about the regenerating health but since the gameplay is so poorly designed for the most part, it did help ironically. The way demons teleport is also questionable & there are lots of arena battles. Lots of them.

 

There are some pointless cutscenes & Painkiller soundtrack killed it for me. I like that soundtrack better in the Painkiller itself since the game isn't a horror game.

 

Automap is useless. Nothing is displayed except for the player indicator. The reason for such thing is unknown.

 

 

In conclusion

I don't recommended it. Doom 3 had perfect ambiance & atmosphere, so this could've been amazing fan-made thingy but instead, we got basically salt & sugar mixed together or in this case, horror/ambiance & slaughterfest. They just don't go together.

All maps have primitive layout which consist of small rooms and tiny corridors and all look almost exactly the same. Gameplay is too repetitive and tedious. I have nothing against arena shooters and some of them are my favorite, but this is a bad example of implementation of such gameplay type. Everything here is: enter in another small square room and getting swarmed by another pack of monsters and multiple times. Balance is almost nonexistent.  At some points you may completely run out of ammo. Health balance is so terrible so author added health regeneration to compensate it. The only really good thing here is music, which is mostly Painkiller's soundtrack, but it's better to listen to it separately or while playing Painkiller itself.

It's good in a lot of ways but I'm not sure I'm completely in love with the gameplay. I never liked being cornered inexplicably in a small room being attacked by large waves of monsters and I hated Doom 3 for that (though Doom 2016 does it really well). Level design makes sense to me in terms of a military complex. Generally speaking you're not going to get lots of interesting architecture, just something functional and this generally demonstrates that. Nice work.

I don't care what people think - it conveys the experience, and in this project, this is the only thing that matters. 5*

No. Levels made only of flat square rooms and hallways, with the the addition of zdoom features that don't improve anything. This looks more like Wolf3D rather than Doom. Gameplay is just uninspired shooting galleries, or arenas where you have to fight the same set-ups for 2-3 times in a row. It also fails miserably with the detail and the visuals as there isn't anything really interesting in the levels, other than a lack of character that doesn't make them distinct like this is just one big shitty level.

Great and extremely polished visuals, gameplay that swings between annoying and boring. Two stars purely for amount of work that went into visual presentation.

The flashy effects were nice and all, but it didn't cover how linear this level set it is. Every level uses the same color texture, and the same design. The hordes of monsters being thrown at me isn't fun. Especially the chaingunners that kill me in eight seconds. 2/5

Played this wad when it came out, Reloading it and playing through to the finnish this time (episode vii right now). Absolutely 5/5 on this one. The feel/sound of the minigun alone is quite addictive. Did I say *feel*?!? Yes, I did. This mod has an amazing way with weapons. The scripted events were well outside of the Doom norm but somehow Logan pulls it of. Storytelling along side horde-style combat are made to work together here.

Nice concept, poor execution. The mapping design is uninspired and every map feels and looks the same. Gameplay consists entirely of being locked in a room and killing a wave of monsters. Cutscenes and overall atmosphere don't really add anything to the experience. A Doom mod has to be more than just pretty to be entertaining.

Awful level design. Linear rectangle halls and square rooms. The cutscenes are abraisive and get in the way rather than adding anything. Poor ammo/health balancing (regenerating health..), waves of enemies are forced on you, slowing things down. This is Doom Call of Dutified. 2/5 Marc's music is great as usual, however.

Um, I can't find GZDoom r(635) anywhere cause it doesn't run with the recent version...as for running it on Skulltag, I can't read the tips or anything else because of major pixelation. If any of you guys know how to fix it, should tell me. :P Other than that, this TC's excellent for game play.

Pretty badass. Credit Doom64 though, considering how many of their sprites you rip off. Doom 3 too. And Slayer, since you have one of their songs on your title screen. Actually, how the hell did you get this hosted here, there are rules against including commercial music or music that wasn't specifically made for your project (all of it). Maps were bland, too much health as it recharges. Ruining the automap and not marking the exits was lame. PK3 file is a total mess. Quad shotgun was fly though. 3.5/5

Don't have anything to add. I think it was all very well said above. This is easily one of the best wads made in years. 5/5 -BeTaNoL

This is a masterpiece! Completely different chalenging gameplay with unpredictable traps, interesting storyline with a dark atmosphere. Also, the soundtrack is amazing! We can see the amount of work, considering the new graphics from scratch. This is a definitive contribution to the Doom experience and the community, hope to see more in the future! Don't care about bad criticism, just keep on your talent! ***** - Daniel

This wad DEFINITELY deserves a cacoward. Logan, you worked 3 years on it hard, pretty much alone. So you deserves those 5 stars :) - Alter.

      Before Plutonia's Go 2 It, there was Dario Casali's take on expanding Doom 2's MAP01 into a difficult and action packed level. Punisher can be seen as sort of a prototype for Go 2 It in that it was released a year before Final Doom and the map is rough around the edges to play. There are far more many monsters in Punisher than there are in Go 2 It, starting off with about 600 enemies, which is three times more than Go 2 It's initial start of about 200 enemies. It sounds like Punisher is more difficult than Go 2 It for having more enemies and a rougher layout, right? Well, actually no, Punisher is easier than Go 2 It though at the same time, Punisher has its difficulty issues that can make it annoying to play.   In Punisher, a variety of enemies are placed together far more frequently, meaning infighting happens immediately in the areas they are in. There are some rooms where only a single enemy type is in to prevent easy infighting, but even still, you can take advantage of monster infighting far more than you would in Go 2 It. Another thing, you don't always get up close to tough monsters like the Cyberdemon so you can pretty much skip them at times, which is unlike Go 2 It as that map has you getting up close to them or at times killing them to progress.   Despite Punisher encouraging something of a aggressive and fast playstyle like you Go 2 It and other Plutonia maps encourage, it doesn't exactly feel like you can do it as freely here. There's a ton of open space so trying to draw attention of monsters to cause some infighting yourself can be annoying to do, an Arch-Vile can hit you out in the open and Pain Elementals can be very problematic, so you might find yourself peeking in and out of cover often instead of blasting monsters away with rockets and a BFG. That's not to say you can't blast through the level if you played it multiple times much like Go 2 It, but even so, the pacing and fights here feel a bit messy.   Punisher is not bad to play and I found it fun to play despite its gameplay problems. I found it interesting to compare this map with Go 2 It to see the differences and how much more refined an expanded Doom 2 MAP01 turned out in the end. If you're into maps with tons of monsters to kill and don't mind some odd pacing, Punisher is good to play, though it definitely shows its age.

      This is a great megawad! Most of maps are well designed, balanced and pretty fun to play. The first hard part of megawad is MAP 15, the final fight (2 parts). After that, MAP 17 is other major spike in difficulty. Then, MAP 28 and 30 are very hard, with 30 being the hardest of the set. Anyway, favorite maps = 18, 20, 25, 28 and 30 (half of it really). The only bad map I've found is MAP 31. Overall it's a megawad I recommend but be warned MAP 30 is very though in UV, I had to play this in HMP instead. I will certainly replay this one eventually!

      With only 7 maps, this WAD delivers excellent quality and at least 1 hour of top notch quality in terms of gameplay, design and presentation. Intense, fast and fun. The challenge it presents is complicated enough to spice it up without being extremely tedious/difficult. It's not easy, but it's not extreme either, and in that balance you find quite a lot of fun. Considering that the WAD is themed on Mars, this is probably one of the best I've seen in terms of adhering to its theme. Great and fantastic. I would like to thank the Cacoawards for introducing me to this beautiful collection of maps that are on my roster of exciting and fantastic WADs.

      It's an enjoyable and decent megawad, nice texture placement, nice level design overall.  My only complain would be a little couple of secrets doesn't have clear hints to find them

      Levels 1 to 4 were great: beautiful, somewhat open maps with lots of exploration, challenge, and smart monster placement which renders a lot of replayability. 9/10 As for levels 5 to 7, their gameplay can be described with 'bite-sized arena fights' as the main loop, and 'mazey nonlinearity' for the layout design, and for me, that's boring. 6/10
