|Spudgun||Really lovely. As a lot of people have said here it feels like playing Doom for the first time, the difficulty being similar - just substituting the awkward old tank controls back then with the ninja WSAD abilities we have in modern times.
My only complaint would be that the secrets are a bit obnoxious to find but this could be a nod to the original Doom so I'm willing to let this go. And the clumsy textures on E1M1 almost put me off but I'm sure glad I persevered.||x|
|Anonymous||Wunnerful, wunnerful. No joke, really enjoyed this.||x|
|Anonymous||Absolutely awesome, better than I imagined.||x|
|Anonymous||Brilliant! Just like the original, but different. This takes me back to the 1990s all over again; I'm discovering DooM just like it was new, yet with a strange feeling of nostalgia. Cheers!||x|
|cortlong50||i played this on a one off like "meh lets give it a download".
this map pack is a braeth of fresh bad ass. i had a blast blasting through it.
so download it. just do it. theres nothing to say other than "this looks familiar...this feels way different"
everyone compares to dtwid. guess what...wasnt impressed. this is a fresh remix that was actually fin to blast through.||x|
|Anonymous||There's a weird texture in E1M2 near the end, but other than that it's absolutely top-notch.||x|
|Anonymous||These are some very nice remixes of the DOOM 1 maps. They all stay true to the original designs, which is good if you loved the originals (E1, in my case), and not so good if you think they didn't age so well (E2-E4). 4.5/5 for a doing the job you wanted to do, and doing it well. - ZZ||x|
|Anonymous||An interesting take on the original doom levels.
Definitely captures the feeling of classic Id levels.||x|
|Anonymous||Pretty different from DTWID, to be honest. This wad has a clear attempt to recreate the original Doom levels but with a few modifications and twists. DTWID is simply a clone in terms of style; the levels themselves are entirely new. If you want to play Doom again but a bit different, play this. If you want to play levels that could have been in Doom but weren't, play DTWID. Nonetheless clearly these are not the same goals.||x|
|Glaice||Very similar to original Doom but has its own twist. PS author: E1M5's starting sector hurts the player.||x|
|Anonymous||This is great fun, but some levels were so similar that it raises questions about whether you really built from scratch.
Nonetheless I suppose that was the point of this wad. It does succeed at putting you back into the original doom experience.
It gets a 4 from me, but with some hesitation.||x|
|Anonymous||it is amazing how a little bit of differance can change the gameplay experience, yet still has that classic and nostalig feel. Im not kidding!! When i launched this, it awakened in me that same feeling which ive had years ago, when i first launched the original Doom.||x|
|Anonymous||DTWID is nice and all but the older wd12.wad is from 2008 and that wasn't even the first version. the WD is disorienting sometimes, but that's part of the charm, it's like you're in a parallel universe or something. anyway it's a lot better than a bunch of shitty broken zdoom "vanilla" wads being released these days.||x|
|Anonymous||This is clearly a rip-off of Ultimate Doom, the levels IMO look too similar to originals, the difficulty is slightly harder than originals and this tried to copy DTWID. There is no reason to give more than 3 stars for effort, the maps are well done but they are too similar to originals so try better next time. 3/5 -Doomer95||x|
|Anonymous||So cool! 5/5||x|
|Anonymous||You either hate this for being too close to the original, or you love it for staying true to the classic gameplay and bring welcomed variations to the levels we all know so well by now. I think everyone should play this. It replaces all levels from all four Doom episodes, and they are well (re)made. This is version 1.3 which is the final update for the WAD, bringing some fixes for several maps and changing some architecture a bit more. I can only recommend it. 5/5 - NightFright||x|
|Anonymous||Wonderful stuff. 5/5 dwrTag||x|
