Once again, this wad is better than 90% of what's out there. The mood and the feel is, once again, creepy and amazing. I can't stress enough how glad I am that you continued the Unloved series, however, that having been said, I would like to offer my subtle criticism thus far (by thus far, I mean that I am about half way through, or a little over, if the length of the first Unloved, or the fact that I have the first 4 keys is any indication). Yes, I know I should finish the game all the way first, but I can't because I am stuck with the red skull key (shortly after you use it to raise to red skull pillars blocking a basement somewhere).
1. The level diversity doesn't seem quite as good as in the first one. Only the city level really added to the level diversity here (so far).
2. It is a little more 'switch-hunty' than before, which, to my knowledge is something no one is a fan of, but then again, I usually prefer more linear maps anyway, so take that however you want. Again, though, it's not that bad, and I don't think that 'switch-hunty' is (apart from obviously being grammatically flawed) the right expression here. I think I just get lost because a lot of the levels look alike to me.
3. I was under the impression that using music produced by bands is a bad idea, like your use of NIN's Closer in one of your tracks. The music theme from the first game was perfect, and the city level music in this one is the best I've heard so far in this game. The use of NIN here isn't like drilled over and over again or anything, but really takes from the feel of creepiness when/where it is applied.
Trust me, I am not complaining and I have enjoyed this so far. Unfortunately, I don't think I will be finishing this one (sad face), because, I just HATE being stuck, and going on a switch hunt in a 6-level hub (I'm sure that number is wrong) just makes me want to do something else instead.
If I were giving this a review, which I'm not, cause I want to wait until I beat it (or not do it at all if I never do), I would give it 5/5 for sure.
**************UPDATE & Very Slight Spoiler Alert*********************
I just remembered something that might help indicate where I am stuck (since I don't know any of the level names), just in case some good doom citizen cares to help out a fellow doomer :).
The part I am stuck at is the same area that you hear a revenant cry, then see he's not there, think "oh, like in the first game, just my imagination", then he appears behind you, and you subsequently mess your pants. Nice effect, btw :) (The Revenant, not the pants-pooping) x D
