About This File

The experience of playing through Knee-Deep in the Dead is one that many gamers will never forget, but through the years the episode has become too easy for many to play through and enjoy the way they did the first time.

Knee-Deep in ZDoom is an interpretation of Id Software's original groundbreaking production, Knee-Deep in the Dead. The team has focused on expanding the original episode by utilizing the power of Randy Heit's ZDoom port; adding new areas, features, and gameplay devices not possible under the original Doom engine. Knee-Deep in ZDoom is a new experience, but holds strong to the atmosphere of the original. Relive the fear. Relive the nightmare. Relive Phobos.

Highly ambitious E1 remake with a very high level of detail and plenty of original content. The maps are massive and really test your navigational skills. 4/5

A monumentally impressive mod on both a technical level aswell as a map design level. Beautiful if a bit too dark at times giving it a real horror mood. The grenade launcher is a terrible gun though, I must say, it hits you more than it hits enemies, and it does double the damage of a rocket both ways.

Combat that John Romero could NEVER have imagined! Experience Lion-O blocking your attacks with a trash can lid, the Dover Demon firing lasers and shitting on the ground at the same time, satyrs doing more damage lightly pawing at you than specters do taking giant bites, and killing yourself with rubber grenades over and over! TWICE as many keys as before! FOUR times the stat screens! Can you handle this much X-TREEM? (The levels are truly impressive expansions of the originals, however).

Switchhunt City. Convoluted bullshit where you run around the map for half an hour checking everything once more, trying to figure out what the fuck you're supposed to do. If that sounds good to you though and your only problem with the original Doom was that progress was too obvious even in the later levels, then this is the mod for you. The new weapons and monsters are so interesting, too. There's clearly been a lot of effort put into it, it's just a shame that the pacing has been murdered and immolated.

I liked KDIZD a lot, with the exception of Z1M8, which annoyed me in quite a few ways. But still, it's a great wad.

Giving this a passing 3, 'cause effort. I didn't enjoy it personally, but I can see the love that was put into this mapset. It's a shame it wasn't better.

Kinda good but kinda not. Too many weapons. Does Doom really need an SSG or a grenade launcher for that matter? Giving this a final mark has stumped me because there's a lot of good in here and there are plenty of fun bits but there's other bits that make those less enjoyable. So I can't be totally positive. I think the length might have something to do with it.

Despite being frustrating at times, as people have said, it wasn't so much confusion (with the exception of Z1M3) as it was difficulty. Overall challenging and addicting. I kept quitting when I would die, but coming back ten minutes later to play again. The ending was glorious. 5/5

I think they did a superb job I love the new weapons and monsters I love the new sound effects and the maps while haveing new places to explore have some familarality to the original Kneed Deep in The Dead. The detail is Legendary I haven't seen this level of detail in any wad. All these factors make up a very very good wad. 5/5

Easily one of the most interesting projects ever made, it shared a nice balance of old and new concepts that put life (back) into E1's original theme. Further, it actually felt like a complete experience from start to finish - nothing seemed slapped together, from level structure to the new monsters to item placement that forces you to think as you fight. Very rare for a levelset to actually draw you in like this one did so easily. Thanks for releasing a project with character and a pulse!

Excellent. The tie in to the original levels is well done. Over-all amazing.

Hated it the first time I played it, hated it again. I lost interest at Z1M4, and just cheated through the rest. The maps are too big for their own good, and the gameplay gets boring as a result. The detailing is just plain ugly, and overdone, like the designers didn't want to leave a single bare wall. I probably would've passed on this regardless, but I think tying it to the original E1 maps was a bad idea.

Fantastic! An incredible modern interpretation of the original Romero DOOM episode! 5/5.

While the detail somewhat slaughtered this, it is playable by every means. The 'three new' weapons arn't needed, the plasma rifle and BFG would of go well, but whatever.. 4/5 for effort and long time to make.

I like this wad for the same reasons than people who dislike it : huge levels, puzzles, new monsters and weapons, hellish secrets... The same facts that makes me love Daedalus, Eternal Doom or even NeoDoom. Obviously a 5/5 from me. ~Naan

Kicks ass! Some levels scared the hell out of me. Defiantly gave me one hell of a rush. 5 stars. These guys better make the Shores Of ZDoom (or whatever the hell they're gonna call it).

This is an amazing wad, those who claim this as garbage are jelious little kids who can't do any better them selves. There was alot of consideration to the monster placement wasn't the best, but it was still very enjoyable. 5/5!!! Good job guys!

      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.
