Prepare to see the most disturbing, sadistic and morbid manifestation of violence that you ever seen in your life. This is the definitive gameplay enhancement mod for the GZDoom and Zandronum engines. Warning: After you see it, it cannot be unseen!
Look, this mod was clearly a double agent against the cheeks. It was proven that Mark is a mysoginist, a racist, and overall, a brainwashing clone who will do anything that it takes to get the ratings as high as possible. Even the Cacoward was fraudulent, as the Doomworld staff were brainwashed to think that Brutal Doom is OMG DA BEST MOD EVAR and UACMN being OMG DA WERST MOD EVAR. It's just pathetic. Now onto the review of the actual "mod".
So, this is just an overgory immature mess, with particles that can really slow down on some systems, and this is the Doom Engine that we're talking about. With such cliche quotes as "**** YOURSELF!" and "GO **** YOURSELF!" when you taunt (and you also flip the bird), and don't forget the "UH" sound effect when you jump. Oh yeah and godawful metal music that doesn't fit in with the levels you are playing.
More importantly, the weapons are overpowered as ****, with a bunch of boss fights being shortened to 10 seconds. And even worse, there is forced no autoaim, and tedious reloading. And why not make it even worse by adding yet another element "borrowed" from CoD (which in itself is awful), the ironsights, for when you can't shoot at a nearly stationary target.
It's a shame that this site only allows me to vote a 1/10. I would have voted 0/10, but I can't for some stupid reason. In fact, the Terry WAD community finds Brutal Doom so awful, that in one of the latest Terry WADs, there was Brutal Doom protection in the ACS to prevent people from playing the mod with Brutal Doom.
The reviewer below me, has severe mental problems, and must have been severely brainwashed.
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 **** bro?), the screaming blasts over every other sound going off, it is pure ear hell!
The balancing of the mod is absolutely shagged: More than 10 imps and your *** is on Ebay, Cyberdemons are pussies that can be absolutely crushed in ten seconds (They are literally giant glass windows), if you bump into a baron of hell in a corridor you are brown bread, if you see an arachnotron you will be loading game soon (Dead simple is near impossible on UV), mancubus shots annihilate everything, all you will ever need is the shotgun, the chaingun is wank (And doesn't even penetrate 1 imp making it useless) and the list goes on.
Gameplay: It is basically CoD: Hell Warfare with added gore porn and sadism in the mix, it ruins megawads and cripples original Doom gameplay.
Graphics: the enemy sprites look absolutely hideous, seriously you can see color changes and cut edges of the things (you know, like an unfinished product?)
And then we have the author and his fantards (Not all Brutal Doom fans mind you, just rabid SGT Mark loverboys):
The author is, and always was, a complete and utter egotistical little self obsessed, misogynistic, rascist, suicide endorsing ******* (and that is hardly scratching the surface), he takes negative opinions as "Jealousy", how comical.
Then you have his hardcore fanboys who defend his ******* actions to the grave, attacking (via messages and such, not physically) anybody with a different opinion and accusing them (like Mark himself) of being "Jealous", how comical.
I used to be a fan, but then it hit me: The mod is wank, the authors a **** and so are the fanboys, avoid this ****.
