Despite a few maps here and there that didn't sit too well with me—the good so heavily outweighs the bad that I can't give it anything but 5 stars. Map 12 may be one of the best I've played.

I can already say this is a sequel of Evilution by finding myself getting lost in map03.

Options and things:

 

* GZDoom.

* Have played with "Complex Doom" modification.

* Difficult - "Hurt me plenty". "Ultra-Violence" is too much for that WAD / in case of combo with mod stuff.

* Didn't care about secrets much. Finished 30 levels, didn't get into 2 secret onces.

* MAP019 has first cyberdemon on it.

* Save/load. Sometimes a lot in case of settings I've chosen.
* #37 in community top.

 

Pros:

 

1. + MAP012 (Transduction), MAP013 (Hangsman's Curse), MAP014 (Abandoned Port), MAP015. (Nukage Zone), MAP017 (Spider Colony), MAP020 (Portal Facility), MAP24 (ЯƎᗡЯUM) - great design and sounding.

2. + MAP016 (Devil's Den), maze, Hexen like style, but good one. If you solve one complex puzzle - you can get the BFG.

3. + Combines fine with "Complex Doom" modification.

4. + As a good sequel to "Evilution" - enough to count such.

 

Contras:

 

- 1. Episode 2 seems to the best here, when Episode 1 is kinda mediocre one. 3 just fine, nothing special.

- 2. MAP010 as example. Has like up close to 300 monsters. You can call that I prefer more 90's like style gameplay, not today "shoot and run" between tonns of enemies, in which for many mods and maps stays today (Brutal, Guncaster, ...), still. I think it's too much. Few maps has big number of monsters too, but in case of better design it looks normal.

(?) *. Perhabs it is a matter of "Complex DOOM", still. In case med-packs thing works fine, but in case of ammunition - you never feel that there are not enough cartridges or so. I.e. difficult has no mention in that case. Monsters still kill you very fast, in case of what "Complex" represent, but it doesn't stick to things of weapons. 

(?) *. MAP015. (Nukage Zone). There is a place with teleport when you can get into the trap. You can grab the chainsaw, but there is no exit from this location in case tower with chainsaw is always going down. Unless you will get the ammo pack first using another teleport - in that case there will be teleport in the location. Perhabs I've missed that one before, when using switch, but seems to it's not working in first case.

I'm pretty thankful for the opportunity they gave me to do few maps for the wad, and I got map08 antiquated.

 

Pretty Good game, it's a good sequel for the original TNT, although there are some flaws, but rather enjoyable experience..

Very good wad! Nothing to tell about visuals and maps desings, very good quality 5/5.

Gameplay 3,5/5. Some maps were boring in terms of challenge. It never get harder, with some few exceptions of course. My favorite maps was, in order: 12: The best map of the wad! very good music, textures, and atmosphere. Map 20: The same! (love your soundtrack Eris falling) Map 29: The map with the best difficulty. Map 30: Very good IoS. Original as hell. Map28: Good one but what the hell the red and blue keys? I didn t  understand that.

I know that some autors made more than 1 map but I think that a project with many autors need more variety with the gameplay.A lot of  maps looks like was made by the same guy, i mean, very fine maps but almost the same challenge, similar atmosphere and noise midis. I tell this in a constructive criticism way. Love u guys.

Good wad, something good considering to play, especially for those who love TNT evilution. In terms of design, nothing to tell. But that's not what I care that much about usually. I simply think it's well designed all in all. Some maps are confusing, but it's normal. In terms of difficulty, I'm disappointed. I expected a curve closer to the Hell Revealed levels 13-20. Especially since it drops betwenn maps 22 and 27. At least it's not like Requiem. And again guess which map I didn't like. 24! Do I hate number 24 or number 24 hates me? 

 

The only reason I can give 4 stars is that this wad has better map design and better gameplay than the original TNT. And it shows maps can be somewhat difficult without cyberdemons at times. But after Hell Revealed my standards have risen the bar a lot. So if it wasn't for the map design, I'd have given it 3 stars.

I love this megawad, and almost everything TNT related, and this megawad aimed to make a good fusion of what made evilution soo unique and what made plutonia soo challenging.
As in every wad, there highlights and downwards but nothing to bad. The first 20 maps are something amazing, going for a more puzzle and carefully designed encounters playstyle, including the two secret levels, but in map 21 the difficult suddenly ramps up pretty high, differentiating this last 10 levels almost totally from the previous 20, turning them into something closer to plutonia maps. But this is totally forgivable because in TNT Evilution happened exactly the same except that the 10 last levels of Evilution feels like somewhat rushed and not soo well balanced as intended...

Anyway, this is a true succesesor for a great iwad, conciliating the modern standar with the inmersive storytelling of the original.
Now i will like to search for the true succesor of Eternal Doom, a wad that is slowly becoming one of my most loved of all.

Good hitscan-heavy megawad that doesn't rely on bullet sponge enemies too much. Map 12, Transduction, has awesome horror atmosphere. A well done IoS on map 30. All in all a good megawad.

While I think Revilution is a damn fine megaWAD, I don't think it's a good sequel to the original TNT: Evilution. It feels like it should have been it's own thing. The original Evilution had more of an adventurous feel to it and was more laid back to me. It oozed atmosphere. Revilution, on the other hand, oozes that same atmosphere in its level design but the gameplay is a tense fight from start to finish that left me exhausted. It felt and played more like Plutonia than Evilution. Some of the maps border on being somewhat slaughter-esque (the later maps in particular are guilty of this). The use of custom DeHacked work happening in map 30 was interesting but felt out of place. I understand wanting to not make map 30 another IoS fight but when I play a sequel to an IWAD, the last thing I want and encounter to see is any custom DeHacked stuff. This is however just a personal taste thing with me.

 

It's still a damn fine megaWAD and I would recommend everyone play it at least once. I just think that it should have been its own thing rather than a sequel to one of my favorite IWADs because, to me, it feels more akin to a Plutonia sequel.

Done with these settings:

 

- Crispy Doom 4.2

- Ultra-Violence.

- Continuous combined with a pistol start mindset.

- Saves every 10 minutes or so.

 

Now this is a damn good sequel. An incredible amount of quality in every way you look at it. First of all, the visuals. This includes a ton of different textures, lots of red, green and brown for naturalistic environments. Thematically it's after the destruction of the demon-spitter in Evilution, thus it goes through different ambients that are more hellish/fleshy than the infested techbases we were used to. I'm a fan of spookiness in Doom, so this wad gave me a lot to experience in its abandoned computer stations, corrupted by the demons as if the recurrent text "Kill us" wasn't enough for me to feel tense. However, it is not as simple as it sounds to generalize the themes in Revilution, since every map is an individual case of different colours and geometry, and that nourishes variety in my opinion. What is also worth mentioning is the amazing music selection, like valkiriforce commented in his review, there're a few astounding covers from the Evilution soundtrack, as you'll notice right in the starting map, plus a whole bunch of atmospheric midis, just excellent works to accompany the playthrough.

 

Reiterating, this was much more than I expected. Being a spiritual sequel to one of my favourite iwads, this didn't disappoint in any way. I'd think of Revilution is to Evilution what Plutonia 2 was to Plutonia Experiment. Why? Both share the atmosphere of their prequels, adapted to the current gameplay interpretations of their eras. This means that some of the most memorable concepts in Evilution are present here, in a trip to nostalgia and, most importantly, higher quality entertainment, but not exactly in an iwad fashion. So, with a lot of contributors, there's an extensive variety of scenarios to appreciate. Of the numerous remarkable experiences I had, one part is Dobu's approach to bring back the mysterious atmosphere, the silence and the surprise, and the eccentric geometry from the more natural maps like Quarry or Deepest Reaches, which Eternal took charge of making a charming remake for map 18. Back to Dobu, his map 16 is an excellent example of scavenging resources in dark caves, while you deal with exposure, claustrophobia, and clever puzzles. If you're playing with carryovers and freedom of choices, ignore them in this map, the gimmick is real fun. The tribute to Wormhole in map 12 is another standout, both the cinematic transition to an alternate dimension and what awaits you there, but also the secret hunt in the map, an exploration task I'll take any day. Phobus and Gaspe went on a similar style, the latter did a super dark corrupted underground base, with a few tight quarters that will make you sweat, while the first guy invested in a sort of abandoned facility that might not develop so much action, but you'll want to speed things up before it's too late. Another honorable mention goes to Steve D, his creations are probably going to stick in everyone's minds as purely mean-spirited maps. Maybe I wasn't expecting such demanding traps, with an emphasis on locking the player's way out with fat hitboxes, but satisfaction comes with success, guaranteed it'll take some serious effort. One prominent author is Jaws in Space, his style here is hard to describe in simple words, there's a bit of fast-paced run-and-gun, also some quick incidental combat a la old-school TNT including stronger beasts, generally short-medium sized linear maps with or without a task/gimmick, save his entry a la Dead Zone where progression might not be easy to figure for a while. Talking about tricky progression, that was the case of valkiriforce's map 31. I really liked his throwback to Pharaoh, although with many predictable circumstances if you remember the original map. What rubbed me wrong way was a hidden switch to grant access to one of the keys, which I needed a video to point me that switch. I guess that's another throwback, thankfully no missing keys. His other map somehow didn't fit with the rest of the maps, although still an enjoyable tutti frutti of themes. All of the other authors did an incredible job in their individual and/or dual contributions, that includes a love-letter to spiders courtesy of Purist, fun with elevators and height variety by Tourniquet, a quick punchy entryway by SFoZ911 that hides more than you'd expect, even a trip to Eradrop's vision of hell in a slaughter-esque fashion while you're being observed by statues of cows, and many more that you'll love to experience by yourself, because you should must. 

 

Secret-wise, all my love to exploration and multiple worthy secrets in a same map, namely in Dobu's maps. The first map of the wad already anticipates what Revilution has in hands for you about secrets: hidden encounters, shortcuts to find tasty weaponry, telefrag chains that will answer all your doubts, etc. There's basically everything you don't want to miss if you're a fan of exploration. A small thing: in map 21, it is possible to nullify the secret tag that has four boxes of rockets in a red room behind bars, read this. Anyway, there aren't favourite maps this time, because I enjoyed them all a lot, some more than others though. Perhaps 12, 16, 17, I don't know, this is too hard lol. If one map needs a shoutout is 30, it's an unique piece of art, one of the best finales ever. 

 

Overall, I suggest you add it to your list, there're no reasons of why you shouldn't pick this megawad to spend a weekend or play periodically. Even if not all maps may suit your wishes, or the word "TNT" holds you back, it's not a remake, this has way more to offer than empty big rooms or ripoffs. I guess what's missing is TNT Revisited? :P. My rate is going to be 9/10.

What can I say? Two words: Simply awesome.

 

This WAD has it all - it's fun, challenging, has clever puzzles, has excellent music, great maps. Combats were sometimes a bit tight in the earlier levels but certainly nothing to lower the rating. Definite replay value. I loved Maps 3, 19, 28.

 

How this fantastic WAD only "runnered up" at the Cacowards is beyond me. After all, Cacowads were founded for WADS like TNT: Revilution! I demand a recount!

 

Bravo Team TNT. This WAD won't be forgotten anytime soon. Well worthy of 5/5 Stars. Keep 'em coming!

This is just a wonderful WAD, i enjoyed it all the way through, Ultra-violence on my first go. the music made it feel so cool, my favorite music pieces have to be Map01 TiN Toker, Map06 Contempt i hate you, Map02 Neato, Map13 ThirteenTH Hour, and the intermission and story screen music, The final map is one of the best Map30s i've ever seen.

 

This is really a true sequel to TNT, so thank you guys for making it!

 

So all in all id recommend that you play this as soon as you can!

This has become one of my favorite mapsets, the difficulty is just right and the detail is pretty good.
I liked this wad so much, that I made custom brightmaps to use them on GZDOOM.
Sadly, some of them wont work properly because of mapping reasons, Like some custom textures are a replacement for another.

It's been a long time coming but finally a sequel (of sorts) to the subjectively superior IWAD TNT has graced us. 

 

Whilst not exactly as completely true to the original TNT formula, this mapset recreates the magic and the mystery of potato kinishes the old IWAD and remains fairly close to the TNT style and I adore that.

 

My biggest complaint has to be the oddly loud midis, I had to turn it down in PrBoom.

 

 

All in all it is in my top 10, clearly.

A pretty darn good wad overall, especially the last episode. I'm not massively into the textures here or in the Original TNT, but they do the job nicely enough.
The music was a strongpoint and kept things moving along.
Recommended.

An quality fan-made continuation of TNT.WAD. Completed it for 12 hours totally.
MAP15 and MAP28 along the favorites.
Final bosses is interesting, though it can be rushy sometimes. I played with PSX sounds wad and did not noticed boss death sound, cause it shared same sound with PSX arachnotron.
The level is of detailing is very high. Sometimes even can not believable, what this can be done with vanilla limitations.
Skyboxes are one of the best what I saw in other wads.
What I don't like is some maps is just out of place, like MAP27. One more disappointment about they pulled out Europa/Lithosphere from MAP32 slot. Hope we can see them in another related projects.
Also you can see the real name of cyberdemon at the cast screen :)

4 stars because I'm a fucking idiot overwritten my saves with another wad. I gave up on finish it because I was on map 28 when I lost my save files.

 

I admire such gameplay flow, architecture, and stuff. Man, how did you guys do it?

Not a fan of map24 though. With all those switch hunting and stuff. I spent like 1 hour plus on map24 alone, please prepare salt if you starting this map. I cheated my way out of the map and I got "SUCKS" remark on the intermission screen haha.

 

final score 5/5

a mapset like this was certainly a long time coming. excellent quality control and plenty of fun maps. also lots of custom music that manages to be fun to listen to as well. I remember almost every map from the beta releases, excepting MAP26 and 27 which were new. didn't really like 26 though. from valk's gargantuan exploration maps to eradrop's mini-slaughter scenarios to jaws' quickies, this mapset has a load of fun. one thing to note: MAP30's work on the dehacked enemies may crash if you are playing with mods that modify monsters (at least i think the turret is actually an SS replacement). worth the download for sure.

Finally, a proper sequel to the other half of Final Doom - TNT: Evilution. Much like Plutonia 2 was to the original, this feels like a well-detailed modern equivalent to TNT with old-school vanilla flair. This time however there are plenty of all-new textures to add to the experience of a new flavor of TNT.

 

First off, I want to say the soundtrack is AMAZING. I listened to the intermission track almost every time I completed a map in its entirety. There's so much character put into the soundtrack I would almost suggest giving it a listen before playing the WAD, but really it can be appreciated in either respect. I was glad to see (or hear) many talented musicians involved with this project I was not previously aware of - with the likes of Eris Falling, Viscra Maelstrom, Bucket, Eradrop, and one returning composer which I do remember from the 90's - Jeremy Doyle. Some of the tracks include remixes of days long past - with a cover of TNT's, "Into The Beast's Belly" and "Blood Jungle" in the form of TiN Toker and Reaching Deeper. Also featuring a couple tracks that echo Memento Mori and Requiem with, "Sea Bats" and "Your Last Resort". Anyone who remembers their playthrough of these WADs will be pleased to pick up on some familiar notes. Also worthy of note is Jeremy Doyle's involvement including some old tracks that date back as far as Requiem's development now making headline 20 years later with this past Summer release of Revilution. The tracks, "Neato" and "REQ-JD10" do remind me of an older time in Doom's WAD release history, but there's so much old-and-new content to be found in this WAD it's difficult to narrow down all the highlight moments.

 

In my playthrough, I went for 100% kills/secrets on every level, and was only bested by purist's map in that regard with 1 secret that was difficult to notice. I also found out the hard way that MAP21 has a secret that can lose its effect when going for the yellow key, since it lowers the sector and erases the secret "effect" entirely. Otherwise, the only other odd instance was missing a few monsters on map 15 when I didn't properly set off a linedef-trigger to release their teleportation. A mishap on my part when I failed to thoroughly explore one of the outlying towers in a sea of toxic waste.

 

I recall someone likening some of the new textures to that of Quake II's offerings, and I agree somewhat. They have a strong, gritty outlook in a sort of deep metallic-brown with plenty of TNT-isms to be found in silver-sheen borders and computerized-hellish environments. It has that contradictory nature of the original TNT, but fleshed out tastefully in an imaginative way. The only way I can think to fault this WAD is also somewhat similar to what could be said of Plutonia 2's offering compared to the original - in that TNT: Revilution doesn't delve deeply into the same level of absurdness that TNT sometimes had with some of its old-90's design tropes - although I'd argue that it seems to work well enough in favor of what's usually passed for quality. In other words - if you were looking to experience oddities like Administration Center or Mount Pain again, I'd suggest waiting for the eventual release of Final Doom The Way Id Did.

 

All this aside, I was greatly surprised by what the mappers on board had to offer; collaborative efforts like, "Transduction" and Phobus with "Portal Facility" have a haunting atmosphere perfectly captured in the ghostly tracks that occupy them. The kickstarter map, "Uprising" with its guitar-driven soundtrack really excites me with the impression that TNT has finally returned these 20 years later - at the very least as a spiritual successor as driven by the community (that is - apart from not including the original members of TeamTNT). Eternal's sole offering, "Hell's Signs" probably feels the most like an offspring of the original TNT, as it nicely captures that otherworldly sprawl into a suspended hellish-cave in space. Purist's, "Spider Colony" to me almost felt like a John Romero take on TNT, which was an incredible delight. I'm also appreciative of Steve D's murderous affairs, "Blood Factory" and "Abandoned Port" which were some of the more troubling encounters save for gaspe's entry, "The Crash Site" and the joint Tarnsman/Alfonzo effort, "The Visage of Time." I won't spoil the new offerings of the last level, "Malignata" but I will say it makes very good use of DeHackEd and it's probably one of the most memorable last levels I've ever played in any megawad setting - I was happy to play it more than once if even just to find 1 of 2 secrets that were still missing. Really there's much to be said of what TNT: Revilution has to offer on board, but without sounding too long-winded I'd say it's better to experience the WAD and decide for yourself what map encounters stood out the most.

 

Most of all I can appreciate that this WAD was setting out to do something new with each map - there were a few callback moments in my experience, but not enough to warrant the, "remake" label. As a sequel I felt it was right were it needed to be - a 21st-century transliteration of what made the original TNT especially unique, capitalized by no shortness of modern talents like Dobu Gabu Maru, Eradrop, Pinchy, Steve D, gaspe, and a great handful of others.

 

I would gladly give this a 5/5 - I'd only apologize that I also have a couple of entries (maps 24 and 31) occupying the WAD without knowing what I was contributing to. That's still 30 maps worth of long hours of effort I was otherwise not involved with, and I'm surprised to find myself enjoying this megawad so much. Well done on the part of all the mappers and musicians involved including former project leaders Kyka and Eris Falling, and a big thank-you to Jaws In Space for seeing this project through to completion.

Excellent, hands down. There is certain ammo tightness, especially in the earlier maps, but I think it makes this WAD even greater. A must-play.

      Great '94 map. Don't be discouraged by the seemingly impossible scenario the map starts your w/! There is a secret area that will allow you to activate a crusher that'll kill the cacos in the first room.   Once you get past that first tense section, the map really opens up. There are some toughish fights in this map, but nothing too frightening - due to the lack of Doom 2 monsters.   The gameplay in this one is superb, check it out! Really surprising how well put together it is, seeing as this one came out before Doom 2 did!

      Good tunes, cool visuals, fun gameplay.

      A very detailed (but nearly microscopic) techbase map.   The detailing is quite good - truly feels like a real place.   Gameplay wise, the map is too small to offer much of a challenge. It took me under 3 minutes to UVMAX. I enjoyed what was here, but really wanted to see more.   3/5
    • By Arrowhead · Posted
      Decent map w/ a lot of symmetry - but that's to be expected from a WAD based on a real place.   I took it upon myself to look the library up on Google Maps, and you can definitely see what the author was going for architecturally - the library in this map is pretty close visually to the one in real life! It even has the little cube sculpture out front!   Doom isn't the best medium to recreate real places, but it does an adequate job here. In terms of gameplay, the map is very easy! One should have no problem beating this map on UV. The most difficult part of this map is its navigation. It is a little bit of a switch-hunt.   Monster placement is surprisingly good for a map of this type.   Check the map out, and then look it up on Google Maps! You'll definitely see the resemblance! :)

      A bit of a cramped map, but there are many fun fights to see here. This is one of those maps w/ very little room to run around. You better be able to dodge revenant fireballs in close quarters if you are to have success here. This map isn't too difficult, but it is a fair challenge. I'd say it'd be a 6/10 on the difficulty scale today.   There is some mean archvile placement in this map, too. A lot of fights involve hit and run tactics, as there isn't nearly enough room to circle-strafe in this map. Because one can't circle-strafe, the map is far more difficult.   There is one absolutely great trap involving a dark corridor near the end of the map. I don't want to spoil it, as its quite a 'scary' section of the map.   I recommend you play w/ a port that supports MAPINFO, as there is a message at the end of the WAD when you win.   Great map from the early 2000s. Check it out!
