What a shame. The atmosphere and visuals of this wad are very well-done and are perfect for me, a big fan of the game Blood. But unfortunately the actual gameplay is a huge letdown. It's just not fun. You're given so little ammo that even if you begin with perfect aim, you'll undoubtedly run out and be faced with hitscan cultists and zero ammo. So you need to use the pitchfork on the poisonous enemies in the beginning (unfun) to have a chance against the cultists later on. This sums up the entirety of the mod's progression. You need to take EXACTLY the right path and make EXACTLY the right moves or you will be fucked. Which is really stupid since the city is so non-linear. It's punishing players for exploring. Just started exploring the city and feel like checking out this warehouse? Nope, here's two mini-bosses you couldn't possibly defeat at this point! How fun. And also due to this non-linearity, one is liable to get lost, trying to find the way to progress or remember exactly where to backtrack to.

 

Some would say "it's supposed to be ammo-starved & punishing like Blood". Well really only the first few levels of Blood are ammo-starved, for most of the game you are given a reasonable amount of ammunition. Which is good, because running past enemies like a headless chicken or making painstaking effort to melee them is not fun.

This was really, really good. My only complaint was that there wasn't more! I honestly think a lot of people who downrate this are simply too stupid to appreciate it, which is a shame. The level progression was never cryptic in any way for me and I never got stuck wondering where to go next because it was pretty obvious. Great job Tormentor667. 5/5 Legendary.

@^: being offensive is childish. Besides that, calling a map good because of a lack of weaponry, is silly. On-topic: yet another form-over-content map with 4.5* for the excellent ambiance and 1.5* for the gameplay which mostly consists of endless walking around not knowing where to go and what to do, making 3* overall. IOW: brave attempt, but failed. Because U know, DooM is all about gameplay, for ambiance alone I'll go to a museum or so.

Someone said you needed cheats to beat this, and that there wasn't enough ammo. That's the point, you idiot. There's not supposed to be a plethora of ammo. You're a damn moron

A great horror WAD, also look like a custom tribute to Monolith's game, Blood. Those black dogs SCARED ME!!! Although after the first half of the map I lost, this is a very good WAD! The usual Tormentor667 quality. 5/5 - Katamori

Brillant Alone in the dark atmosphere and Blood appearance in a Doom engine. Great Work. Only bad fps in the fog. 4.9/5. More like this

Very good atmosphere, and very hard gameplay, especially until you manage to find and grab the shotgun and armor. There is some initial pointless wandering until you set the right scripts off, but gets better afterwards. There must be a bug with the railroad station puzzle though, as I killed the monsters before entering it and now nothing happens, so I'm stuck before getting the eye key. Well duh, I'll have to replay I guess. 5/5 -Maes.

Great stuff. Especially the 2009 ME edition. Be sure to keep looking around though - even in places you think you've already cleared out - as helpful or even necessary items can suddenly appear in them.

While it looks good, it turns boring really fast.

I do like that it has real suspense. What I don't like is that damn siren. Oh wow, I'm a hundred miles away from a moon room trying to actually make progress in this level, and the siren goes off. The siren detracts from the flow of gameplay.

One of Tormentor's best wads. You can really see him growing as an author, and I think this had really good gameplay to date. Though Tormentor does like to raise the stakes when it comes to gameplay so it's not so surprising that some (lazier) doomers find the challenges a bit much. But this is hell after all, isn't it? A very impressive piece.

All of those annoyed by the tight ammo balance and the differing gameplay: This is not supposed to be Doom, it's supposed to be different so do not play this in Doom style, spare your ammo, move slowly and be on your toes, just like in Resident Evil! I loved it, 5/5!

IMO this one map is far better Blood tribute TC than all of ZBlood. Nuff said.

Damn good. A little irritating with the whole siren thing, and the pistol was WAY too weak, but good nontheless. 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".
