Spoiler Waring: Unless you have beaten E3 of Doom, you may not want to read this, as I am about describe the last parts of the game.
I finally got myself to beat Doom, a game I've been playing off and on for quite a while!
So to start off, when I last played I was at e6, looking for the secret level. I found it in about 15 or so minutes.
I notice right away that the bonus level looked like a modified version of E3M1, only it ended up leading me to yet another cyberdemon, and the way this little "arena" was set up, it was a lot harder to take cover. I probably kept getting killed for over a half hour before noticing the green ball, making me temporarily invulnerable, which made the boss considerably easier, even though it wore off a minute or so before I killed him, and I was left with way more rocket boxes than I needed, which was pretty cool!
Anyways, the next to last level was easily the hardest of all of E3. Thankfully, I found the blue +100 health ball, and he vlue armor, and decided to save them till I found the exit, which took me a while since I couldn't find the switch that created the bridge to the exit.
So yeah, fully armed with all ammo save for the chaingun, and with full health and max armor I headed into the last level.
I went out of my way to concentrate on the final level music for bit. It...wasn't bad, but it certainly wasn't anything special, especially compared E1M1.
I looked for any final secrets in the hallway at the beginning, but I didn't find anything, not that I really needed them at this point, and I pulled out my BFG, a weapon I had specifically been saving for the area. Without thinking, I ended up using about 3 shots of the weapon on a few cacodemons, and then found the last boss, which turned out to be a...giant robot spider?!!! Anyways, he turned out be the easiest boss in the game, as all I had to do was charge and shoot him with the BFG about 8 or so times. I think I still had about enough ammo to shoot the gun at least 6 more times when I killed him, and my thought were "That's it? Seriously?!!!!"
The ending of course left on a cliffhanger, which, correct me if I'm wrong, basically points out that you stopped demons from attack the planet earth...or did you! The beat the game music pretty disappointing too,
Anyways, other than the last 15 minutes or so of the game, I had a lot of fun with Doom, so I have to say that I highly recommend this game to anyone who's into first person shooters.
Oh, and technically, since I'm playing ULTIMATE Doom, I still have one more episode left to go, but until I do that, I'd like to try out a few user generated maps for the original Doom, preferably ones that are short, easy, and have little to no puzzle solving. But I think I'll ask for that in another topic.
Oh, and if you want my thought on E1 and 2, check them out here:
I leave this intro post reminding you guys of two things:
For those who would ask the question "Are you for real?" I don't know what to say other than that yes, this post is 100% genuine. I've liked this game for a while, but I go back and forth between this and different games.
Oh, and yes, other then the recent BFG Edition, as far as I know I have access to every single Doom game.
