In development since 2010, the 18th Cacoward winner and Moddb 2012 MOTY Editors Choice of Creativity Award Brütal Doom takes Doom into a whole new level. It makes the game much more violent than before. There's much more blood, plus it adds unique gibs, death animations, dismemberments, headshots, executions, fire and explosion particles, flares, shadows over all objects, and much more.
The whole world becomes more real and interactive.You can kick severed limbs and heads (and sometimes, use it to activate some traps in the map earlier, or even kick them against enemies to do some damage), you can shoot enemies' heads to deal more damage (and cause more gruesome deaths) you can destroy most things in the the scenario (trees, lamps, hanging bodies, etc), you can paint the floor, the walls, and even the ceiling with blood, you can push the explosive barrels to make traps, or grab them and use like an explosive weapon, you can silently take down enemies from behind and perform stealth kills, the chainsaw actually cuts the enemies in two. When you find the berserk pack and get super strength, you can perform cinematic executions and RIP AND TEAR your foes with your bare hands. Some enemies will scream in anguish and try to crawl away when near death, and they can be used as human shields, and much, much more

Everything in Brutal Doom is extremely intense. Everything sounds louder, looks bigger, moves faster, and hits harder. You can even fell the impact of explosions. Enemies are harder and smarter, and weapons and explosions are loud as fuck. Your weapons have been upgraded to a deadly arsenal, completely throwing the vanilla Doom's "progressive weapon system" through the window. Every weapon is powerful and have it's pros and cons, and a weapon will never be outclassed when you find a new weapon.You have new abilities too. With any weapon selected, you can press Q (default bind) to kick enemies at close range and send them away. Press F (default bind) to taunt enemy players, and Z or X (default binds) to wave to other players in cooperative modes.
Brütal Doom will make the good an old Doom have a new and fresh look. It will give you a reason to play all the Ultimate Doom, Doom 2, and Final Doom levels again. This mod also works with almost every megawad and map pack around. Take a breath, and prepare to RIP AND TEAR HUGE GUTS!!!!!

My first (and probably last) music addon for Ultimate Doom and Doom II. Basically it's a compilation of my fav remixes of classic Doom songs.

The iron sight in for the new assault rifle in the test versions is god awful. It's like a cartoon, you might wanna change that.

Brutal Doom v20 Johnny has a MUCH better iron sight for the assault rifle. Download it and try out the iron sight and you'll see exactly what I mean.

You also have to keep in mind that BDJ's iron sight is way off center and the it doesn't actually line up with where you're shooting.

Well, I tried out the latest v20 test version (or what I think is, anyway; it's the latest version I could sniff out a link to, in any case). It's pretty amazing. Haven't found any major bugs or minor bugs that stood out, and as always it's really fun to play. I dig the (I think, anyway) slightly larger variety of difficulties. Haven't tried the realistic difficulty yet, since the even harder Black Metal difficulty is already kicking my ***.

I just hope that when you finish v20 you resurrect Ultimate Brutal Arsenal, because so far that was the most fun I've had with Brutal Doom add-ons because of the much larger enemy and equipment variety.

Will brutal doom at some point be playable with mobile versions of doom?

Yep, look up D-Touch on the Google Play store if you have an Android. It has a few engines to choose from, including GZDoom, and supports mods too. Brutal Doom runs beautifully on my S5 and Nvidia Shield tablet.

Considering that Brutal doom relies on fluid free aim for best results. I'm doubtful it will happen.

If Zandronum or G/ZDoom ever get a mobile device port, which I don't think is going to happen, sadly.

BrĂ¼tal Doom clearly deserves a 10, for several reasons: First, it has been developed almost single handedly by a goodwill individual, who clearly has shown the outmost dedication and perseverance through 2 years of continued development, besides from being always open-minded and patient, hearing suggestions and criticism and enduring ludicrous amounts of flame-wars on some of the forums where the project was being discussed. Such professionalism must be taken in note. Second: the level of compromise…

Brutal Doom is an over the top (and OVERRATED) mod for the classic DOS Doom games. The weapon sprites look nice and smooth... That is where the positives end I am afraid. The sounds within this mod are terrible (excluding voice acting), the weapons sound like water guns compared to the sounds of the enemies screams of pain (Seriously are you into sadism and shit bro?), the screaming blasts over every other sound going off, it is pure ear hell! The balancing of the mod is absolutely shagged: More…
