The levels in the middle of the game are truly awesome. I like to replay them from time to time. Looking forward to 2.0.x

Boring play, good looks.x

Originally a commercial addon, this was leater rereleased as freeware. Unfortunately it's lacking the final levels as it was never really finished. Aged extremely well and comes with all changed graphics and sounds, making for a game feeling very different from Doom (except the shooting itself, of course). Can be played as a standalone IWAD, so why are you still reading this?x

An add-on. Now an IWAD. It is that good. While the levels are EXTREMELY complex, even for MAP01, just makes the whole thing more unique. The ugly pistol weilding thugs, the robotic shotgun, the fat rocket launcher AND chaingunner and so on. The challenge is pretty sweet. 5/5x

There are balance issues, and there are vast areas without health then lots with loads of health. From a gameplay perspective it isn't fantastic.x

This is a great game, haven't finished it yet, but it has some very meaty maps and satisfying guns. Plus it is historically important, it was a commercially released game after all.x

Thumbs up all the way! I really like the weapons, but not the amount of ammo that you have. It would be nice if you made a HACX Weapons WAD. But for right now, 5/5 for you.x

Obviously a LOT of effort went into this and it shows, if this was released 10 years ago you'd be picked up by a professional publisher in no time but even then it's a great effort. I got stuck in a room, don't know if this was intended or a bug I also dislike the Ghetto handling of the Uzi LOL. Well done overall! I'll definitely give it another shot.x

An excellent (now-free) 'independent' game from the late 1990s. HACX2 is shaping to be an even better experience.x

Awesome mod! And this version can even be used directly as an IWAD with Chocolate Doom. Doesn't get any better than this. 5/5x

For 1997, it's a decent TC, but still, it wasn't that great. I can forgive the switchhunts etc., but what really got me was the graphics quality; sprites, textures etc. just weren't suited for a 256 color palette, and it showed. This is something that's true for many older TCs, of course, but DOOM itself got it right. Play so you can say "I played it", but beyond that, there's (much) better material out there now.x

I guess it starts okay, but the levels get boring and redundant, and the enemies aren't really all that hard and/or interesting. Feels like the designer got bored halfway through and started recycling the levels with minor changes. It shows effort, but feels incomplete and unsubstantial.x

you worked hard but it is unfamiliar..x

Basically, this is a Zdoom version. Use Hacx 1.1 with anything else. Why delete the REJECT lumps? Why rename all the MUSIC lumps and then rely on dehacked to match them up? Not every port supports that, and it means there is an error if you warp to a non-Hacx level. I could go on, because there are other things too (e.g. maxhealth), but you get the picture. The whole idea of an "iwad version" is a cheap trick. You just need to rip a few lumps from the Doom2 iwad & slap them in. Legitimate? Not really.x

HELL YEAH! HACX WORKS WITH ZDOOM NOW! 5/5 just for that. ~Joe Andersonx

Can't wait for 2.0.x

Hacx is an *okay* game, it's good AND bad. Sprites and weapon concepts are nice but the enemies are annoying and the level layout is boring. -Mikkx
