Doom or Doom2 Levels?

Recommended Posts

Depends. I prefer to talk about individual levels. There's excellent, good and not so good maps in both...

The Ultimate Doom definitely. Personal taste suggests E1 ranks highest, followed by E4, then 2 & 3 respectively. I didn't favor any of the Doom2 maps. Just me I guess.

I like DooM 2. There's just something about it, some higher level of ambience or something...

Definitely Doom. The majority of Doom2's level look like they were done in just under a day, while, IMO, Doom's look like they took far more time to complete.

Funny: Romero recently stated that E4M2 took him just six hours to make.

EDIT: I was trying to find a link to that comment, but couldn't. I have a very clear recollection of reading it somewhere though.

Diddn't notice. I wasn't paying attention. I'm too tired for a party now. :(

Doom 2 has some good ones, but I think Doom 1 had better levels overall. As for gameplay though, I like doom 2, mainly because it's more diverse. The new enemies and the double shotty added alot to it. I think my favorite episode though is probably E2 or E3 of doom 1. I'm really not that big of a fan of E1...in fact I like E4 more than it as well. Oh well.

Haha in your face, big disgrace :P ...ahem...

I find both Doom and DoomII to be great to me, I don't actually have a favourite.

I will love E1 and E2 'till the day they pry my Ultimate Doom CD from my cold, dead fingers.

....It can be arranged. >:D

Doom 1 is the greatest! :() and for those who want to make TCs its best to start with doom1 especially if you plan on replacing sprites.

Like I've said before, I prefer Doom1 levels. Especially E1 is exellent, though too easy obviously. I would like it more if there was less healt: there's practically a healt box in every corner :) I didn' like the rest episodes that much, but there were some nice levels in the E3 and E4. I think E2 was the worst.

The only good levels in Doom 2 are those between maps 1-8. Most of the maps after that are awful. I liked the monster condo though.

Doom1's maps are generally better although a lot of 2's maps have a certain surrealism, which is really good inspite of their 'rushed' appearance. I prefer the gameplay of Doom2 though, more exciting, challenging and varied.

Doom 1 (meaning that E4 isn't included). The level design rocks and I even think the gameplay is better in the first game because of the atmosphere and because there isn't too many enemies like in Doom 2.

Killing stuff in D2 gets repetitive really quick - my guess is that it's because it becomes more obvious in Doom 2 that the monsters are easy to kill. I prefer the sneakier gameplay in Doom 1 to Doom 2's "aim-into-crowd-and-press-fire" gameplay.

And the level design in Doom 2 is horrible imho - the overuse of brown textures sure as Hell doesn't make it better (Quake 1 anyone?).

I like both DooM 1 and DooM 2 designs, as they're both meant to be something different, and they both succeed at doing what they're meant to do.

Gameplay is better in DooM 2 though, as it's much faster and harder, with more than 2 types of monster that need more than 3 shells to kill.

Doom1's maps are brilliant, but I play Doom2 far, FAR more, as I have more mods and stuff for it.


Actually, there's many WADs for DOOM. There might be more for DOOM II, but not by that much. As for mods... I hardly touch those. So I play both games (this includes the PWADs) more or less equally.

For Death Match, I found I liked Doom 2 stages better. For single player, nothing tops Doom 64 on my list. Dark Citadel was one of the best Doom levels ever made.
