Excellent adventure with a dark atmosphere, cool architecture, and fun gameplay. The level/puzzle design is well-done, with engaging puzzles across multiple maps and interesting spins on the traditional locales (eg. the fire level is a mountain on a sea of lava). The whole wolf theme was also unique and interesting. It was very helpful that completing everything necessary on a map resulted in the message "Map completed", preventing unnecessary backtracking. Unfortunately I didn't acquire enough aeon mana to unlock the aeon attack, but I did get enough to unlock the aeon passive (regenerating mana for the mage), and it was very useful. The new enemies & bosses look good, although they aren't perfect. There are a couple of oversights like how the wolves lack a death animation or the ettinwolves lack most noises. The best enemies were probably the statue bosses (who totally took me by surprise), as they were complete, fit best with Hexen's artstyle, and filled a unique role.
Unfortunately, the flame mask and ruined town puzzles do not work properly in newer versions of GZDoom, so you'll be forced to noclip to complete both of them if you start the game not in an older version. That isn't the author's fault though, so it's not a criticism.
Two great vanilla maps with great challenge and excellent level design. The atmosphere is solid and vanilla textures are used wonderfully here, I especially love the sky texture here. Ammo might be a bit tight on the first map if you don't manage your ammo well, but otherwise, it's a fantastic set of vanilla levels.
I actually haven't played this just yet, but I feel like I need to get something off my chest before I get to playing this wad. So read below:
Whoever is immediately downvoting my reviews as not helpful, even almost the instant I post them, get a fucking life. I want to know what I did that is making you hate everything I do. Come forward and speak, fucking coward. I try what I can to make my reviews worthy enough so that people can actually read some insight before playing a wad, and I'm as accurate as I can get. So then, whoever you are, tell me what I need to do to improve.
Still, downmarking everyone's reviews, especially the ones that just get recently updated, isn't really helping your cause. It isn't even helping any type of a cause, if you make of one. This hasn't happened to some of the more recent reviews right now, but it seems to happen more often to me than it does to others, and I bet this vote trolling isn't gonna stop soon. It should though. Either I'm doing something horribly wrong or someone just hates me or something.
