Love it or hate it, you have to admit that this mod has easily one of the best atmospheres ever made for a Doom mod. The idea for your home being a hub where you can access levels is really cool! When you open new areas and collect keys it gives a great feeling of progression.
Even though I gave it 5/5 stars doesn't mean it doesn't have flaws. The problems I had were getting a little lost while trying to memorize the doors and areas that require specific keys to unlock. Also later the game becomes a little bit slaughtery with the absurd amount of enemies that you have to fight against. Fighting against tons of enemies in tight corridors and small rooms were not really fun at all and the final boss was kind of lame.
Lastly, a really solid, fun and creepy mod to play. I played this mod on October and it boosted the atmosphere by a ton. It was also cool to see new monsters that have been also seen in some of Tormentor667's levels.
Overall, one of the best compilation of the wadpak series. Episode 1 is really solid and the best of the series, episode 2 starts with a ugly looking dm arena (that is on HEROES.WAD iirc at the same spot) but from E2M3 starts to become good, with the expection of E2M7 that isn't a real good map imo and Episode 3 been the worst of the pack, with a pair of good maps (E3M4 and E3M9), that crazy map that is E3M6 (no really, is the weirdest map i've seen so long!) kinda followed by E3M3, that Mt. Erebus / MyHouse.wad strange mixture that is E3M7 and overall pretty mediocre / bland maps. Also you start with all the guns right at E3M1, ok.
Yet another newbie stuff from Jeremy Wagner. This is however superior to its predecessor, but still not great. We now know that the getting-stuck situations are deliberate. Here's a hint: whenever you see a room with two switches, save. One of them is bad and will shut your progress.
I must commend the author for adding HHE and custom sprites though. The HHE is interesting because it replaces the Ethereal Crossbow with an Ice Crossbow, which in good Raven tradition fires fragmentation shard projectiles (the ones fired by the Iron Lich), and they work perfectly with the player. It also makes the Crossbow really powerful on its own. The only port I know which can load HHE is Chocolate-Heretic. Use
-file incubus.wad -merge sprites.wad -deh hack.hhe -hhever 1.2
to run it.
Unfortunately the mod is really not stable and is prone to crashing Chocolate-Heretic, so it only gets 1 star. Sorry. Without the crashes it would have got 2 stars for the modding effort, because the level design is still bad.
