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!!!!!

On v20b there will be a CVAR called "bd_blursphere". It can restore the invisibility power-ups (which are replaced by captured marines), or mix them, with a random chance of spawning each other.

And now, unlike in Vanilla Doom, the player is actually invisible, and you can confuse and trick enemies with it. Watch a demonstration here:

Chex Quest: Kid-friendly FPS that advertises the Chex cereal and uses the original DOOM's engine.

This game with Realism Mode in Brutal Doom version 20 = mostly one-hit deaths for you.

I am dead (no pun intended) freaking serious.

Does Brutaldoom have hud on its own, if it does, how do I activate it?
Or should I just download one of the huds that are addons to this?

The "+" and "-" keys on your keyboard are capable of changing the size and also what shows up on your HUD. I think if you press one of the keys that I mentioned a few times, you can get the original Doom HUD.

Not sure how to word this but does anyone know or remember the wad where it expands doom 1 and doom 2? like in the first level of doom 2 you start outside and the inside is also expanded with more rooms and more monsters. I use to play that using brutal doom and it was awsome.

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…
