Best "licensed" mods to play?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I rather strangely never played the original Doom, though I did sink serious hours into Star Wars Dark Forces when I was a kid. Anyway, I'm working on a writing project that chronicles the evolution of licensed games, especially tv, movies, and comics.

Whilst speaking to a friend about playing such abominations as The Sopranos and The Shield videogames, he recommended the Batman Doom TC. Some digging around online through the googles also points to an Aliens TC, Goldeneye Doom, and a Star Wars mod that looks a lot like Dark Forces.

What other un"licensed" mods would you recommend? I'm not really interested in just reskins of existing levels - though if any are especially awesome that'd be great too.

Apologies if there's some super obvious weblink that lists everything i'm looking for, I'm quite new to this!

Good lord, there's so many! I've got a preliminary list of over twenty mods to play, can't wait to dig in after I polish off Doom 2.

I know its a bit odd to ask just for levels based on pre-existing properties, but are there any other ones you could recommend my way? You know, star trek, movies, tv shows, etc.?

Also, are there any really humorous mods you guys would say are must-play? Not so much a joke wad like ones that make fun of poor design, but farcical levels with plenty of odd sound clips and sprites - Sky Must Be, and the Turbo Charged Arcade are already on the list!

Again guys, thanks so much for keeping the community going - its pretty damn awesome that there's still so much stuff available.

Cool, I'll add it to the list.

Unfortunately, I've hit a bit of a snag trying to get the goldeneye TC to function. I'm running windows 7 and downloaded near every version on ModDB and paired them with ZDoom and ChocolateDoom, along with the stand alone edge version. No matter what I do, I'm always missing some textures. The New Game and Quit game on the title screen are just blank squares, and I can't pull up any objectives or have them appear on screen (like in youtube videos I've seen). For example, the truck from the first level is missing, etc.

I managed to get the Batman TC working just fine - and its fantastic! Would love to know whats causing the goldeneye mod to act up though, or if I'm just out of luck.

I tried the standalone Edge with freedoom and it plays perfectly... if it had sound.

Hey Steve,

You were right, that hall is for deathmatch! Turns out i was missing some well concealed smoke bombs. I'm already missing another secret in chinatown, probably something to do with a switch bordered with red lining that won't respond to anything - including cheating to hold a red key. Only finished with 20% of the secrets!

What a fantastic atmosphere though, this is some seriously impressive work. Especially love the idea of returning to the Bat Cave after each boss, fan service at its finest. :)
