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!!!!!

Check out this new video showcasing the latest advancements on gameplay and gore effects, and also, the return of the shotgun's wooden grip.

This video is running a modified version of FreeDoom that will be featured on the "Starter Pack" when BDv20 gets released.

I have completed almost everything required to record the official trailer and decide the release date. Expect big news soon.

BDv20 is also going to be 100% compatible with wads that uses custom graphics such as FreeDoom and Back to Saturn X.

How many new death animations are enough? I say it's not enough yet.

The highest level of difficulty should not be called "Black Metal".
You should call this "Anaal Nathrakh" which means "The breath of the dragon" and also is one of the most brutal and extreme metal bands in the world! ;D

They are pretty extreme except that Anaal Nakrakh is actually a death metal band. Black metal is an extreme sub-genre of heavy metal which often uses "blasphemous" lyrics. Death metal is another extreme sub-genre which has lyrics of usually pain and suffering. I think Death Metal would be better here if you don't count fighting demons.

I can't wait for an addition to the doom coop. I like the expanded maps, the difficulty is great.

Some personal feedback:

--Not really digging the Doom3 Imp pain sounds.
-Don't like the replacement flats for the water.
--The gold plated pistol is out of place.
-Pistol reload frames need some work.
---No way to turn off "special" attacks without editing the DECORATE?
---Footsteps! I hate footstep sounds!
-Why add barrel acid hiss for ambient noise?
--Why keep the HUD effects when blood splash, shot or severely injured? It just obscures vision, especially when performing fatalities.
-Perk's high def sounds should remain separate. I mostly prefer the originals.
--High res/real gore? Why? It looks out of place in Doom.

+Use of voxels is a nice touch.
+++I like the variation in pain noises for player and explosions.
++Grenades! Tho they really should be a darker green.
+Former human sergeants also dropping bullet ammo, that is nice.

I'm doing my best. Without cheating, this combo is platinum! By the way, never use the third weepon on slot #8. You need enormous amount of space to blow the monsters up. Fire that in a medium map and you're pretzels.

Brütal 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…

A god-awful one-shot gimmick. Overhyped and overpraised. Bother yourself with higher quality mods like DoomRLA, Russian Overkill, and more. Not worth any MOTY.
