Mod Review on Oct 31st, 2013 - 1 person agrees 1 person doesn't

It's amusing. If you've seen "What if DOOM was made today" (also known as Call of DOOty), you know what to expect. A satire of modern game tropes and mistakes developers make to streamline games. You'll be chuckling for a few minutes, but a full playthrough with this is pointless.

Mod Review on Aug 2nd, 2013

This is a very good mod. Max's new coat and facial hair are both great, and I also like Mona's reskin. Dual wielding assault rifles is very fun, and fits well with the bullet time music and other such things, increasing the level of badassery by a ton. This is really fun, and feels great to play.

Mod Review on Mar 26th, 2013

This mod is pretty good. The new gameplay features are well done, the soundtrack and weapon sounds are both brutal and make the entire game feel more intense.

However, the mustaches bother me. Max looks more like a traditional film noire cop, to be sure. But this mod throws most film noire out the window and makes the game feel more hardcore and brutal. I couldn't see Vlad or Max with mustaches. Facial hair is normally an extension of the individual's personality. Vlad would most like have a clean shaven or small mustache in this game, as he is a suave and sleek character. Max, on the other hand, would probably sport either a clean shaven or a beard. The mustaches just do not fit their characters.

...Did I just rant about facial hair?

And for the record, I am not removing points for the facial hair. It rubs me the wrong way, but I wouldn't remove points for something you see ten times at the most. This is just the score I find reasonable.

This mod is very good. If you want nothing but graphical enhancements that are no trouble for modern day PCs, this is what you need. It does what is advertised, and there are really no downsides to this.

The mod is pretty good. The tweaks truly do make the game feel like the movie...which isn't always a good thing.

Mod Review on Sep 18th, 2012

A well made mod, for the most part. The models were well made, the story was...cliche to a fault. There were also a few glitches. One made the health bar always appear empty, so you had no idea how much health you had. Another was the walk cycle changed from unarmed to assault rifle, and the walking speed was slowed down.

A well made mod, despite those two flaws (and probably more).

A good mod. The new magic powers and swords are fun to use. The new shootdodges are very well animated. However, some may have a problem with the two handed weapon shootdodges, where you stay in position. It defeats the purpose of a shootdodge.
