Second part of Wolfenstein Total Conversion for DooM... This
add-on presents all levels in Wolfenstein episode 3. They are
all created very faitfully... In fact so fatefully that they
are mostly just as flat as originals...
Now I don't mean that they are not good, but I think that they
should take better use of DooM's more advanced 3d-possibilitys...
After all, in DooM you are not tied in one floor/ceiling height.
You could have stairs, lifts, complicated structures... But in
"Die Führer, Die" you only have the basic Wolfenstein levels.
Of course there are some changes to the levels... Some little use
of DooM's advanced features, and excellent stuff like ambience sounds...
Better than Wolfenstein
This is still far better than original Wolfenstein. It's mainly because
Wolfenstein had really lousy controls... You couldn't play seriously
with mouse, and the keyboard controls weren't that great either.
In WolfenDooM you can have any controls that you can have in DooM...
You can flip yourself around with mouse in a flash, or you can circle
around your enemies. That add's a lot in gameplay.
Ok, it's fun and all, but it lacks of challenge. In Wolfenstein you had to be
really careful with any enemy. In WolfenDooM the enemies don't damage you as
badly, and the Hitler in the end is far too easy!
Those sounds that work are just fine in WolfenDooM, but at least
in PC version some sounds have got really screwed up. In DooM
this doesn't matter so much, because DooM just ignores these invalid
sounds, but if you play with BooM, then you either have to delete
all invalid sounds with some editor (like WinTex or NWT) or just
listen those horrofying moans that don't work...
Ambience sounds were a thing that I really liked in WolfenDooM!
It really gives a boost to the WAD if you can hear a waterfall,
thunderstorm or birds singing outside the building! This
was a great thing!
It wasn't really a piece of masterwork, but neither was
it a bad WAD. I really liked this. It was nostalgic and
all, so I decided to give this four stars.
