The definitive gameplay enhancement mod for the GZDoom and Zandronum engines. Adds realistic gore, dismemberments, headshots, executions, lightning effects, particles, makes enemies smarter and harder, makes gun louder and beefier, and adds epic new boss battles.

The most polarizing mod in Doom history. The only mod I have played so far that somehow manages to feel more Doom than vanilla Doom. Purists love to point to the reloading weapons as a terrible attempt to modernize the game without acknowledging that it can be disabled. I actually find the reloading to be a quite enjoyable part of the balance that this mod has. Brutal Doom appeases the same power fantasy that the original Doom first did back in the 90s. Even the developer of Doom 2016 have cited Brutal Doom as an inspiration for their bringing Doom to the current generation. Sergeant MarkIV has come far in the history of this mod and v21 is the most balanced, fast paced, and enjoyable experience in Brutal Doom yet.

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…
