You should definitely play Hexen. It's a very different animal than Doom but still enjoyable in it's own rite. Keep in mind it is filled with many convoluted and perplexing puzzles and there is a lot of back tracking through the hub maps to figure out some of the puzzles.
have fun clearing the very first hub of the game. :D
it took ages before i finally finished Hexen and the expansion, Deathkings. Hexen has some neat things going for it, but man oh man, is it easy to get stuck. and it isn't so much as the puzzles are puzzling, that it is a convoluted switch and key-hunt. find a key to open a door, to press a switch to "solve part of the puzzle", find more switches, find more keys, oh and kill some guys on the way. eventually you'll reach the end and have to kill a boss typically.
i do appreciate it more now though since i did finish it, but i still have a bit of a love/hate relationship with it. i definitely recommend using GZDoom so you can more easily spot triggable lines to alleviate some of the headache with the game.
