That's about as bad as it gets. Although you could try The Sky May Be, which many people think falls into the "so bad it's good" category.

Tried, quit 3 seconds after I started. It's still on my hard drive.

EDIT: Also, I remember there was some sort of bad wad contest on the ZDoom forums. Any links?

EDIT 2: Typo on seconds.

I don't know anything about that. I don't post over there that often.

I've just spent the whole day trying to get over playing that .wad.
I only got to map03 before going blind and passing out in my own vomit.

Things I liked: The idea behind map01.





Thats it.

The horror :(

And that awful MIDI of Chop Suey...

I put Action Doom in that category.

I don't think D:RE is actually a terrible mod... just painfully mediocre. However, so many things compounded to make it terrible... largely the author's ranting. But having to use an old exe, failed skyboxes, boring enemies, repetitive game play, dull architecture... all combined in one. There is nothing inherently "worst wad ever" about any of it... but somehow... it all fits together to push everyones buttons just right and be really bad.

I just tried that and...well, read my review's comment. However, it still amazes me how PWADs can turn Doom into something even better than Doom initially was, or into a grotesque visual, aural and mental cacophony, something taken out of a sick mind's dream, that really feels like a grotesque tumor growing on Doom's body. It's amazing in a sick, perverted way.

If you mean Doom Rampage Edition, it's (semi) understandable. If you meant Sadhusct, please remove your brain, put it in the wash, squirt febreeze on it, put it in a nuclear reactor for 10 seconds, and then put it back into your head. That should solve the problem.

Ummmm...
Explain the role of FeBreeze(tm) in this procedure.

Isn't that what qualifies something 'really bad'? Sure there's some garbage out there that's technically worse but let's be honest: If you see a Sadhusct.wad you have a good laugh, shrug it off and life continues. DRE is something totally different...

Equinox anyone!?

Wow.wad. The most infamous bad wad EVER. No effort, no gameplay, no fun, but still famous. That, plus the whole "Illuso-pit" is actually a good idea. Make it really deep, and hope the demons fall into it!

especially the cacodemons...

If you mean Equinox was a bad wad, then i also must have bad taste because i love it! Anyway about sadhusct. Is it torture to play it? because im downloading it right now......

Sadhusct? It made me laugh out of the sheer way it totally distorted and nullified Doom and all that it used to stand for. Definitively worth a look, if you can take it with philosophy.

Speaking of Sadhusct, I never did like the fact that the dehacked patch made the player unable to move.

About Doom: Rampage Edition, let's just say I thought it was like the Daikatana of doom projects.

That would be because the patch made the player several million units tall. Nothing too out of the ordinary.





for sadhusct, that is...

Anybody know of the joke wad of DRE. It was 1 level for EDGE, and The author said something like "he could pull a better mod out of his ass... so he went ahead and did it"

I thought it was good. Anybody else know it?

Indeed it was.

The idea of playing as a Baron of Hell, it looks and sounds like a good idea. But seems to be done wrongly.... Very Wrongly, =S

Is anything about this 're-release' actually changed from the original?

Share this post


Link to post

Nope, but the package contains more text files than the one that is (still) being given out by a certain doom-related site. Those who know, don't tell. Those who don't, don't ask.
