About This File

I decided to make this after seeing Nitroactive's take and being disappointed by the fact that Crash didn't animate. I also went a little overboard along the way so there's a Crash variation to replace every monster.

Surprisingly well made. Some enemies used fireballs to attack, but i'm not sure if there was a way to tell if it was a variant or not, but I didn't really pay attention so I can't say much.

I set aside my dislike of this meme and actually take a look at how the game plays with every enemy replaced with Crash Bandicoot in one way or another, all in his infamous woah meme. Unlike Nitroactivie's original version of the mod, where every game is the exact same unanimated Crash doing his woah phase, this mod actually has all the original Doom enemies replaced with a variety of Crash Bandicoots, such as the ones replacing the possessed leaping at you (aside of the Chaingunner variant, which actually shoots bullets), Imp replacements throwing fireballs, and from then on all enemies act just like their original counterpart, only Crash Bandicoot and they all leap at you at random.

 

The leaping around is a bit of a gameplay changer since even the larger Crash Bandicoots can still leap some distances to get closer to you, and if anything you don't want to be close to a Cyberdemon Crash Bandicoot as they also can still shoot rockets at you. On the original Doom IWAD maps, the enemies sure go all over the place and often drop themselves into open wide pits of lava or acid so you won't exactly kill them in the same vein as you do with the original Doom enemies. Aside of leaping, the Crash Bandicoot enemies don't really have massive changes to note really, and while yes Lost Souls die in 1-2 bullets and understanding how Revenants attack in this mod still somehow frustrates me, it's pretty much Doom with a whole lot more annoyance, and it can get to your ears real quick on hearing the same loud woahs the entire game (that is if you go out of your way to do so).

 

There really isn't much to check out with this mod aside of a 5 minute chuckle about killing the Crash meme only for that to get annoying real quick. Yes the enemies are well animated and no the mod isn't exactly bad, it's playable and it does try to make up what would be some bad difficulty spikes by dropping health bonuses and occasionally weapons (regardless of enemy type from what I've experienced) as a source of ammo. However, there really isn't much worth checking out other than playing for the sake of internet memes. I would say it might be worth a shot, but if you want to play more than a couple maps I hope you don't mind hearing Crash saying woah hundreds of times as that might drive your patience low real quickly.

      Only first map is good, where you must run away from cacos. but when you get ssg everything becomes bad. Visualy this wad is below average (from 1995) missaligned textures, very big square rooms. At least no maze included. Maps 01-03 have a lot of backtracking, and switch hunting, but they are easy to find. Map 04 has INSANELY high lift. One way lasts so long, that you can go make dinner, clean your room, drink some beer, and still wait for it.  Overall waste of time, but not terrible. Just below average of 95 wads.

      Pretty decent WAD by UltimateLorenzo. Overall I really dig the use of custom monsters and the addition of the Plasma Shotgun and Nailgun - they fit in quite nicely.   As for the maps themselves, I love the detailing put in each level. A lot of hard work has been put in to make these levels pop. The first five maps were excellent, the next three were tedious in that you pretty much have to shotgun everything pretty much (if done on Pistol-Start), and the final five was also quiet good, taking on a more 'Quake' style in appearance.   What's the deal with MAP13 though? No weapons to take on 250+ monsters? Obviously not meant to be Pistol Started. Good if this was made into a full-fledged megawad, but this is still certainly worthy of a playthrough.

      Not recommend, this map is made of 2 rectangular mazes and few bigger rooms. Mazes are confusing even with automap. Only one area is intresting, but overall meh. Progression is also confusing. I didn't make through this without help of map editor. 1.5/5*

      Note: I had to reupload to fix a minor but immersion breaking bug in MAP25. Make sure to redownload the WAD!   Also every map in this is great, this was prob the first project I have worked on\tested where I would describe the experience as heartwarming. Some people may disagree about some of the more difficult maps I guess, but even if they are too hard for you there's something in this WAD you're bound to enjoy.   [obligatory my map sucks comment to close the review]
