Beautiful Doom is the grandfather of most enhancement mods, including the well-known Brutal Doom. First released back in 2008 this mod aims to improve each and every single object in Doom, making them smoother, more impressive visually and having better sounds while retaining VANILLA gameplay. Keeping original vanilla gameplay is the core of Beautiful Doom. You will see smoke, casings, debris, hugely enhanced gibbing system, smooth weapon animations, but it will all play the same as vanilla Doom plays with (G)ZDoom. However, for those, who don't like fully vanilla things, there are two player classes: the 'Vanilla Guns' class will give you guns that only look better but act the same as original Doom guns. The 'Enhanced Guns' class introduced as number of changes: for example fist and pistol are slightly more effective, and many weapons have alternative attacks which, while not really more powerful, provide certain tactical variety. Choose whichever you want!

I would strongly urge anyone who is just starting to mod DOOM should start out with this! Beautiful Doom feels extremely polished when it comes to gameplay and visuals. I can't recommend this enough!

I come back here right now after playing this mod with a huge smile on my face. Is simply fantastic and very well done mod, the sounds are done in a very good quality and the sprites of the weapons and the pickup items too. Monsters random deaths are another cool addition and bullet casings flying around makes the game more atmospheric. Absolutely very enjoyable gameplay experience, recommended if you like classic game style with a touch of fresh air.

Beautiful Doom is a very good visual mod that allows you to retain vanilla gameplay.

If you are playing classic Doom for the first time, you should play it using the GZDoom source port, and this mod!

A blast to the past... with the new.

Very well done. Many improvements while respecting the original Doom gameplay mechanics (unlike other mods, i.e. Brutal Doom).

This mods just improves and adds quality to so many aspects of Doom - graphics, sounds, weapons... At the same time carefully preserving all the core game mechanics that we know and love.

It's self-explanatory, the visuals of Doom has been enhanced but there is much more to the mod than just that. There's a second player class to choose, where you wield enhanced weapons with secondary fires to assist you as you slaughter demons. Examples of these are duel-wielding pistols and railgun secondary fire for the Plasma Rifle. It's much if you find out for yourself, you won't regret playing this mod.
