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:

Oh, boohoo. You guys are so hypocrites! I mentioned why Brutal Doom v20 is sinking to the worst, but you're still giving me thumbs-down! I was only telling the truth! So, it's okay for Brutal Doom to be "******", but with other games, you complain on how ****** they are, from graphics to "plot" of the story! Well, can you also say that Daikatana is playable, despite the glitches and poor controls? Can you also say that TNT Evilution is Citizen Kane of Doom series, despite their low quality, abomination maps?

You fanboys make me sick. At least in Youtube, majority of them agree with me, unlike this community. Please stop sugar-coating and grow up. Being a fanboy blinds you from the truth. #getalife #hypocrites

You morons still don't get it, do you? I am being honest here, yet you're being defensive yourselves because "you are a fan of Doom"? I have proven my point again. Denial is very evident in this forum...

GawainOfDeath/GaySteamBath: Go back to reddit, continue acting like an eight-year-old hipster, and go make a total idiot of yourself there.

Darknessknight9: "Doom is our favourite blah blah blah"... So your point is...? People like you are the main reason why stupidity exists in the Internet.

Calvinic: So if I hate something you like, that makes me a troll? That is the most illogical comment I have ever read. What do you want, a medal?

FYI, it's not a flame war, it's my opinion... There's a difference between those two.

So if I "critique" something in a forum like this, it's automatically a "flame war"... Keep it up, buddy. Continue being an idiot.

Chunky_Deathpot Sep 20 2015 replied:

Well, you say that it's your opinion /now/ when you know that you just attacked a big fanbase.

And another thing, you should have said that in the first place and not made it out to be that you are ultimate authority. Before you ask for evidence, "I am being honest here".

Although, it also looks like you really don't like Brutal Doom, and that's okay. It's obvious that that is your opinion, but that's all it is. Don't try and force it down people throats.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

So what if I attacked an "entire fanbase"? Do you think their idiocy makes me scared? No! Do you think I care about them getting mad at me? No!

So, you're implying that if I critique Brutal Doom, I'm forcing it "down to your throats", but if I critique other ****** video games, you're then gonna regard me as a prophet...

Sorry, bud. Welcome of the Internet. That's not how it works. Better get used to it.

Oh, before I forget, you're welcome.

Jesus Christ dude, how many times are you going to spew your ******** on this forum? No one gives a **** what you think at this point, so you might as well spew it somewhere else. And how can you accuse the people here of being no-lifes when you've posted a response to every reply you've gotten? Get lost.

I agree 100% with you when you. This community is the worst one of all, ranking next to My Little Pony and Five Nights at Freddie's. So, you criticized the game, but still burried your comment. Plus, they called you a troll for doing so. What a bunch of illogical species this people are.

Criticism is always welcome, if its explained and it makes sense. But just saying that the mod sucks because you feel like it...I would not take that kindly, specially if somebody were to came to shove their opinion down my throat. By the way, before you dismiss me as a Brutal Doom fanboy, I love to play Stronghold: on the Edge of Chaos, and Legacy of Suffering, two of the best developed WADS for the Doom game =P.

Highest Rated (145 agree) 10/10

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…

Lowest Rated (8 agree) 1/10

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…
