A truly excellent set of maps. I had a lot of fun with them, especially Map 15. x

Like CC1, its pretty hit and miss. Unlike CC1, the hits are so good, that I can generally overlook the misses.x

Mostly a mixture of average-decent maps and good-great maps. Then theres Gene Birds maps. Honestly could've been 4/5 from me if it weren't for gene bird. 3/5x

maps 15, 22, 23, 24, and 28 make this worth it.x

This was way better than the 1st CC.wad, I played this October 2014 on a Pentium 3 1ghz in ZDoom and only Death Mountain caused FPS drop. These levels were awesome except for 3 levels: map 24 Mucus Flow would have been a master piece but lack of ammunition caused combat to fall flat on its face, Map 27 Gethsemane was a slog, map 28 No Room was a total piece of shit. All the other maps were good, lots of techbase. Even the Gene Bird maps were fun. Dick tested, Cock approved!x

Damn good wad. From start to finish. Rick88x

Just like the first installment, this is a very mixed bag. Some maps are "good enough" but don't stand out, some are bad (Gene Bird's levels especially, but also "Geist Halls"); better ones include "Through the Black" and "The Marbelous Three", and maps 28-30 alone make this worth downloading. MAP24 ("The Mucus Flow") also deserves a look due to its design and atmosphere, though it's very frustrating in terms of gameplay (failing to provide adequate amounts of ammo seems to be B.P.R.D.'s thing in general.)x

Wow. Wow this is nice. I sure thought it was going to be 'better' than the first one. First 2 maps were great, it all went awesome after that. Play this wad like you mean it.x

Great megawad, enjoyed every moment. 5/5x

Greatest wad i ever played rightly named "Chest" 1,3,4 are ok but cc2 is a class apart :)x

Mixed bag. Most levels are challenging and enjoyable. Some are stupidly hard and beyond frustrating. Level 15 was very glitchy. Enemies were teleporting around randomly. I also had some weird health glitch where if I dropped below 100 health I would die. I had to IDDQD to get out of it. Overall it is worth playing through. The few bad levels don't drag it down too much. I doubt I will play through it again though. 4/5x

With improved standards than the already good CC1, it's a sure winner! The maps have surprisingly good flow with each other and there is a good balance throughout. The authors should all be commended for this great effort. 5/5. -TRRobin.x

Wow, hit scanner abuse, and God Awful traps. There's traps for everything, walk 5 feet down a corridor and get attacked by revenants that spawn in behind you, keep walking down the the corridor and get attacked by more monsters, climb a ladder and the whole room is filled with monsters! That in combination with not enough health made this a frustrating wad to play. I am willing to give it a 2/5 for the detailing on the maps, though. -LordMordecai x

I bet CC4 will be better than this! My liking order from fave to worst: 0. Community Chest 4 (since it's not yet released, I placed as 0) 1. Community Chest 2 2. Community Chest 3 3. Community Chest 1 I don't say that 1 was bad but it was the first from series and is known to be less detailed.x

The best one. Looking for CC4.x

IMO the best Community Chest from series! still looking forward for CC4! 5*x

There seems to be a bug in the second map (coolant platform). There pops up a switch but nothing happens, and there's no way to open ANY of the doors on both sides... Running in Zdaemon...x

Wonderful the guy who invented the idea of ​​joinin g several wads ... Because it makes authors that do not have much time to make a wad of 32 maps can be distinguished in a continuous game wads ... By the way, ​​wads of maps made ​​singul arly usually are worked more in their details, and a wad compilation of single wads is amazing! Sry my english!x

Quality mapping from the whole community. Gene Bird's maps should not have been included IMO, and there are a few other weak links, but it is very good overall quality.x

Sorry but this is heavily overrated. There are some great masterpieces but also many maps which are simply boring. Nevertheless it is worth the download because of the few masterpieces.x

Marred some by Gene Bird's load of maps, but still, there's some really awesome stuff in here otherwise! I think I'll forgive the Gene Bird shortcomings and give it 5/5 anyway. The other maps are (mostly) just fantastic!x

There are again lot of graet maps, but there are some worse too. Maps made by The Flange Peddler, Boris, Iori, Eric and so are just perfect. But some maps again reduce my rating down from 5 stars to still good 4 ;) 4/5 - Damnedx

Good megawad. Loses 1 mark for having a big mix of good and bad levels, instead of having mainly good levels. Loses another half a mark for being a plain community pack rather than a story/theme based megawad. True rating 3.5/5 x
Anonymous
Whoever did map24 should be prized as an insane genius! Map 23 was interesting and unique! Map 20 was good. The rest? Unlike the dissapointing and largely uninteresting cc1, this one has some stuff that make it worth a play, unfortunately the quality rampages from bad to good in and out with crazy speed, and like all joint projects where too many people are involved it ends up feeling like an incoherent mass of maps thrown together randomly without a consistent theme. Overrated... a 3!x

An excellent collection of levels. Like any community project, there are a few duds in here (mainly Gene Bird's levels, which need a LOT more work on architecture), but besides these, almost every other level is excellent. There are some innovative maps as well. Difinitely a must-play.x

Some very good maps here. My favourite 2 were Map20 and 27. A few ordinary maps. But overall a good megawad. -PC 4/5x

Lots of superb maps bristling with interesting challenges, and a few nice puzzles. However, the level "Mucus Flow", despite the hyperdetailing, is RUINED by an impossible-to-find switch that is required to progress through the rest of the level. No, I couldn't find it, and no-one was prepared to help me at the time. So it might be a creative community, but it doesn't have infallible quality control. (B.P.R.D. deserves a slap for that damned switch) 4/5x

The Gene Bird maps were added at the end when people dropped out to fill empty slots.x

Awesome! Certainly right up there with CC1 and the NDCP, with lots of great levels and only occasional short falls (though the Gene Bird maps leave something to be desired IMO). Still, I'd feel bad only giving it a 4/5 given the amount of quality work in here, and since 4.5 is impossible, I'll give it 5/5. I can't wait for CC3 and/or NDCP II!!!!!x

"Community Chest 2" wasn't based around any theme; the only requirements were "make a boom compatible map that doesn't suck too much", and the authors had varying editing experience and style, so of course the end result is a very varied set of maps... Still, most of these maps are excellent. I very much enjoyed playing them through. Now that I think about it, there's not a single map I hate here (which is rare). Even the filler maps have great gameplay. --4/5x

This was much better than the first CC, but still, there were no truly great levels and too many previously released and/or crappy maps. The best ones are maps 27 and 24.x

I don't see in the world why this can't get 5 stars. Although not every level is worth 5 stars, the flow of the levels and the entertainment factor is one the isn't often seen in community project megawads. And some levels are simply unbelievably good.x

Great map-pack. But Gene Bird (maker of levels 4, 8, 12, 16 and 25) really needs to improve his skills at architecture because they look rather bland. 4/5x

This set is pretty good, with a few absolute gems (map07 and map20 especially), many good or great levels, and a couple of turds here and there (map08 and map09 fail it big time). --Woolie Woolx

I played the first level 'cuz I didn't have too much time to play ZDooM this week but even from the first few glipses I'd say it's very good stuff. Yes indeedy. I'd also say that it could've been better, and could have had more detail. But then again I'd even say that about KDIZD. So bleh.... -GeeDougg x

Awesome! I liked levels 15, 32, 23, 24, and 27 the most, but I thought levels 4, 9, 12, 16, and 25 weren't really that good, because they were rather plain-looking. Level 24 was really challenging and beautiful. Level 23 was pretty great too (the music is actually from Mega Man X3). Level 32 was also great and beautiful; nice temple and badlands. I give this a 4/5, because there were some maps that weren't that good, but I do urge you to download this WAD now!x

Some great maps and a few duds, as was to be expected. Some delightfully surreal themes hidden in there. Rest assured, the good far outways the not-so-good in this pack. Better than its predecessor, methinks. --TDotWx

Very nice levels. It was a shame to see that this wad had a large amount of problems during coop play. Otherwise I would give it 5 stars. Pretty Damn Good 4/5 -julz_dx

I'm giging it 4 stars because there's several maps that are utter shit in it. It looks so gross next to the really beautiful and detailed ones. Whoever let those guys participate? But overall, it's really good. - Curunirx

Good, fun and detailed level set, too bad that one author decided to make many poor undetailed maps instead of one good. But all in all good action and most levels are visually great. 4/5.x

It's good to see it was cleaned up from that last upload a few weeks back. I still feel it's too uneven and unless changed, it still has the worst Map 30 I've ever played. Those caveats aside, awesome. A solid 4/5.x

Excellent. Quality, challenge and complexity vary considerably from map to map, but they're all at least good, and some are extraordinary works of art. Overall, this is certainly one of the very top wads of the year.x
