Final Doom (thing)
Return to Final Doom (thing)
|As the title would suggest, this package contains the final official release for the PC game [Doom]. In one sense, it's not really a new game at all; there are no new monsters or weapons added on top of those from [Doom II]. In another sense, it's two new games in one box: it has 64 levels in two distinct episodes, twice the size of [Doom 2|Doom II]. And oh what levels they are.|
None of the new levels were actually made by [id software]; they were produced by the well-known mapmaking collective [Team TNT]. These are some of the most respected mappers in the [Doom] community, and for good cause. It could be argued that their levels are better than even [id]'s.
The first episode is called [TNT:Evilution]. The difficulty in this map set is like vanilla [Doom II]'s, in that it starts out fairly easy and then ramps up later in the game. If you beat the original, you can probably handle this.
The second episode is [The Plutonia Experiment], and it is hard as hell. If you can master this bunch on [Ultra-Violence], I'd like to shake your hand; you'd almost certainly be able to qualify for a [Doom Honorific Title]. This entire 32 level act was created by two members of [Team TNT]: [Dario Casali] and [Milo Casali].
Both episodes feature new graphics and music from the [Team TNT] wizards. If you enjoyed [Doom II] (and really, if you didn't, your existence probably isn't justifiable), this package is definitely worth picking up. Very good stuff.
Oh, and have fun figuring out the pillar maze on [Evilution]'s map30. it's [color coded]...
