I liked it for the most part. The only things I didn't like were health bar bullshit, it's not my style, I prefer classic 100 Health system, so I had to use a custom HUD to show numerical health because for some reason Alternate HUD doesn't work. I also hated the subway fights, especially part with the 2 guys, it was too hard and had to save scum to get past them, otherwise I die and get sent to forest. I give 4*x

^What's your problem dude? If your wad was rejected, there was probably good reason for that (certainly not file size, as you can see from the amount of 50+MB zips on archives). This is one of finest Doom TCs, abusing it's review/comment section like that is extremely disrespectful and won't make anyone feel sorry for you. x

After the credits show up and you see the "Thanks for playing stuff" Don't leave! You will see a little secret which is about Action Doom 3, the author probably though nobody will see it. Anyways, great game. -Jas691x

I would pay th3ese guys money for the joy they brought in my real life, then more itf they put out a 3rd installment. The use of Sin City and Doom is exactly the afterlife I want to imagine being in. Scuba Steve Browning, as a consult please consider another game. Got stories in my head that the doom engine can bring to lifex

Best Wad Ever! 5/5x

How could this not be legendary?x

I'm all for new types of gameplay, but this melee crap is so stanked up that nobody in their right minds should tolerate it. Mostly, it just consists of running forward, hitting the fire button, running backward, and hoping that you don't get buttraped by the dude in front of you while you run forward and any dudes behind you when you run back.x

I'm a bit of a purist when it comes to Doom, but I would still suggest checking this out at least for the novelty. 4/5x

Liked the first Action Doom better. 2/5x

The storytelling was certainly very good, and the new resources are interesting as well (they made the spriters resource!). Unfortunately, it seems that most of the work was spent on the story and creating new resources so everything else has to suffer. Next time, I hope Scuba Steve pays more attention to what he left out in this; it seems that when he cut corners by putting in graphics from other games in AD1, he had more time to get the gameplay down really well. 3/5x

I thoroughly enjoyed the storytelling!x

o_O Perfect Wad!!! 5/5x

1. Run forward 2. Punch 3. Run backward 4. Repeat. What's the gameplay for the next one, a turn-based RPG? This melee crap ruined the mod, which had potential riding on its back because it's the sequel/prequel/whate ver to Action Doom. C'mon Scuba, stick to what made AD1 so great.x

Great work 5/5.x

Some people here think that this wad deserves praise only because it uses completely original resources.... Think again. This sucks, I don't give a fuck if the resources are original or not. I'd rather see a good level with duke3d enemies and textures rather than a sequel to this piece of crap. 0/5x

Slightly better than the original, but still terrible. Not nearly as fun as an actual sidescrolling beat 'em up. It's also very ugly, despite all the original and mostly decent artwork. Level progression is sometimes linear, sometimes completely random; enemies are always too easy or too hard for a well-balanced challenge; and the voice acting is horribly cheesy (which isn't necessarily a problem). Plus, the product placement was pointless and annoying. I can't bring myself to rate this higher than a 1.x

"well it IS a stand-alone game with 100% original resources" I'm sorry but this doesn't change the fact that this game is FUCKING BORING. 0/5x
Anonymous
I'm afraid that the doom engine is just not the engine for a beat-em-up at all. Just running forward, punching, and running back as fast as you can gets extremely repetetive extremely fast.x

The previous comment should be made by a bumpkin. A large TC, his only fault is not to be longer. Masterpiece. 6/5x

While this is impressive what can be achieved with Zdoom, this plays horribly. Sorry Scuba, you did a good job on this with all the work, but the game play and confusing visuals put me off on this. 0/5.x

Admittedly Urban Brawl is far superior to Action Doom 1, but nonetheless this wad is unfun in it's concentrated form.x

This is, without a doubt, the BEST TC EVER MADE! Props for scuba steve!x

Definitely legendary. It is certainly more like a completely different game than it is an add-on for Doom, even if it's way short for a standalone. Some will find the gameplay repetitive but I thought it was cute and liked the style. The cartoonish element was the best part, and what most made it look nothing like Doom at all. I found 3 of the endings, not sure I missed any, but that certainly makes it replayable. One of the most legendary TCs ever - a classic. 5/5x
Anonymous
It's alright but gets repetitive fast. The level design isn't coherent, and while the new graphics are gorgeous it's not enough to make you forget you're essentially walking through a corridor the whole time. On the other hand, all the new resources are top notch, the music is fantastic, the cutscenes atmospheric, it all has a very polished look to it. Shame the gameplay didn't get the same attention. 4/5x
Anonymous
I really don't like the gameplay style in this. However, the cartoon-style graphics are excellent, the cutscenes are cool and the scripting is clever. I'll give it 4/5 because it's well-made and I'm sure anybody who likes the 3D beat-em-up style will love it.x

definitely overpraised.x

This wad has my 5 star vote! Nothing like having a combination of cell shaded levels, a story to fit, and plenty of brawling to go around! Kick ass!!!x

One Word : Legendary. 5/5 *Waits for Action DooM 3*x

Simply Legendary, who cares how much you like Action Doom 1? Why does every sequel have to be the same as the first but added some new things? This is different, and good. I gave Action Doom 1 5/5 for bring what it is, and Action Doom 2 will also get 5/5 for being the same legendary wad, with a new idea.x

Good portfolio piece if you're looking to break into the gaming industry....but this map (doom was originally made for a 486?)froze my machine(Pentium 4)one too many times...so I gave up. Gameplay was repetitive and annoying at times. It's definitely not Doom. 2/5x

This is THE best wad in existance EVER. Nothing else to say. Download it now!!!x

Suffers from the same problems as the first installment: too short, too random, too many paths and not enough incentive (or backwards playability) to explore them all save for multiple playthroughs... why bother when you could be enjoying a newer game? What if I never played or enjoyed those old-school fighting games? Lose this dinosaur, guys. 1 star -wavelengthx

This is unbelievable. Since this does not use Doom 2, you guys should try to sell it on xbox live. Microsoft will have a new feature where the community can submit their work for download. I don't know the precise info, but it might be worth considering. Really fun to play, easy to pick up, fantastic visuals... wowawow. By the way, how many endings are there? I get the feeling that there are more than 2. Anyone know? x

Really good work, but in comparison to Action Doom 1 I think it is a pitty that you decided to choose this cartoon style. Action Doom 1 is better, because of the gameplay (firing projectiles and beeing not cartoon like). All in all this would be 5/5, but because it is "Action Doom 2": only 4/5. I like the first work more :-P !x

the dude going on about AD2's resources not being ripped from anywhere is pretty much the anthropomorphic personification of zdoom.org. apparently you need to rip resources to make a project now. oh, yeah, and this is one of the very few things on /idgames truly deserving of the 5/5. so with that in mind...x

^^well, it IS a stand-alone game with 100% original resources...excellen t use of branching paths and level design. Sure, it could've been a bit longer but that probably would've taken at least another year. I wish there were subtitles because sometimes it is hard to hear what the protagonist is saying. It also would've been nice if, instead of a single punch, more of a combo-structured combat could've been made. For this, 4.5/5 (5)x

5 stars is a given for this wad, but it's not perfect, gameplay was fun for the first hour or so, but the scarcity of guns makes the mostly melee combat a tad repetitive, even with the plethora of melee weapons at my disposal. The graphics is beautiful, there's no way around this, there's just so much well-done artwork and level design is great. The branching storyline is well told, innovative and shows great depth. - Doom Marinex

Simply awesome prequel to Action Doom. The multiple paths, range of endings, great artistic style and overall professionalism make this a 5*, and probably one of the best of this years productionsx
