About This File

Scene The site of A fusion reactor. Situation: CRITIAL; An infultration team entered the reactor a day ago to check on reports of missing personel and strange happenings with the equipment. A half-hour ago, all the power went out in the nearby colony. You've just been ordered to go in, along with your partner, and investigate.

Upon entering, you and your partner immediately find yourselves under a rain of heavy gunfire. You managed to dive outta the way, unfortunately you can't say the same for your partner, you look up just in time to see him look at you for help, hand reached out toward you. *KA-BOOM* Your partner's body falls to the ground lifelessly.

Rage fills every part of your being as you look up at the enemy, and then total horror hits you. Your partner was just gunned down by one of the members of the infultration team! NO TIME TO THINK!! *KA-BOOM* The shot rips through your shoulder.... You unload three shots into the person standing before you.

As you examine the body of the man you just killed, you are horrified when you notice the condition of the body. "Three bullets couldn't have done this much damage?!" Well, no matter, you know what you were sent to do, and you know you can't trust anyone else you meet here.....

This is an updated version of id=887. The disclaimer in the TXT is ironic if you consider how much better Scott F. Crank's REACTOR2 is (currently only the D2 conversion is in the archive as id=2659). Unlike that WAD, this is just a small cramped mess of misaligned STARTAN3, with a few lifts, unmarked critical doors and a deathtrap pit. Good thing the author didn't forget the exit.

      This is the first non-Euclidean doom wad I've ever seen! And it's done right! That must've been some project. Well done.

      *** PLUTONIA 3 - GOING TO THE SURFACE Review ***   I usually start off my reviews with "The Bad," followed by "The Good." This one is going to have "The Ugly." Ready?   The Good:   - Not a thing.   The Bad:   - Everything. For a more detailed reason, see TurrboAnklet's and/or GuyNamedErick's review (both below). I agree with 110% of every word written in both.   The Ugly:   - Duke Nukem music? Really?!?!?! - BFG9000 in second level. And enough plasma cells to virtually destroy the universe including any parallel ones.   **************************************************************************   In Short: I saw the PLUTONIA name, and I got fairly excited to play it. But, that's the gimmick here, isn't it? Reel you in with the name and then you open Pandora's Box. Freeware or not.   I played a few levels from start, then I IDCLEV'ed to a couple teen-numbered levels, then to mid- to later-twenty numbered levels to see if there was hope in the future for any chance of fun. Nope. It's as much fun as eating a generic-branded box of Mac & Cheese - with the box missing the cheese.   I am required to give this WAD at least 1 star else I can't post a review. So, for that reason ONLY, this "WAD" gets a star. There is no freaking way this took 3 years to build. I would believe it more, if it were 3 minutes. This clusterf*ck not only tarnishes the great PLUTONIA name, it insults the entire DooM universe.   Soooo not recommended. 0 out 5 stars.

      Gameplay is just okay, nothing especially interesting. But the level's theme and textures are pretty damn funny. Everywhere you look there's another little joke. It's worth playing just for amusement. I don't know what the hell these commenters are talking about regarding a "creepy atmosphere", IMO you'd have to be a pretty big weenie to get scared by a Doom level full of joke textures just because its a little dark...

      Very cool level. The way you have to use your fist & pistol in the beginning enhances the feeling of being trapped & powerless and having to escape. The visuals are very nicely-done, with lots of little details & cool ideas. The atmosphere is quite spooky, reminding me of the dungeon segments of the later Unloved. It is indeed linear, but it's still an interesting journey and the gameplay is fair & fun.

      Nice layout. There are actually some challenging moments with monsters attacking from every direction, especially if you try to rush it. The visuals are basic but stylish and might remind you of early Grain of Salt levels (see Green Goddess).
