Don`t play with HELL - Black Edition (official abbreviation: DPWH-BE) is a single-player story-based FPS game in the DOOM universe of ID Software. Creating DPWH-BE, the author wanted to demonstrate to the world DOOM community a new quality of gameplay and visuals that became possible due to the latest updates of GZDoom 3+.
I think that the current complaints about the mod are somewhat uncalled-for. I can understand that people don't like Black Edition but to give a straight 1/10 for that one reason without considering what other things it has to offer is just childish. Anyway, let's get to the review...
It's quite awesome to see the quality that community-driven work can have, if there is something that I found outstanding in this mod is the level design, there are sections which could be described as "Doom 3-ish", such as part where you have to traverse the surface of Mars while maintaining an eye on your oxygen reserves. You will also encounter certain bits of "lore" of the station though holographic signs scattered throughout the levels which explain backstory of the events of the game. The hell and cave sections of the mod I found to be wonderfully designed, if this was a horror game I could have even get spooked with the ambience; specially when the Revenants are introduced (I actually was spooked when this happened, but mostly because I ONLY had a couple of shotgun shells and less than 10 HP lol) and this leads to a point which is also worth mentioning, in certain aspects the mod is somewhat survival horror oriented, ammo is scarce, enemies hit hard and can take large large fractions of your magazine to kill. All these elements also have an impact on the pacing which the mod has, certainly you're not supposed to play this like you would play vanilla Doom, it's good to stop and look around, read the holograms, investigate and search for stuff, time your attacks and aim precisely. I put a 9 and not a 10 mostly because of small flaws and bugs I found through the mod, for example the screen gets permanently stuck at a certain angle after being tackled by a Pinky, forcing you reload a save or die to get back to normal.
It's quite a shame that this mod has only a prologue so far, I hope the mod creator doesn't give up and continue to work and completes it, there's TONS of potential for it.
Only for monsters and weapons of the internal mod: Brutal DooM black edition. Hugh......
It's pretty awesome to me to be honest. No idea why all the bad reviews are for. It is really odd because none of them explain anything as to why other than "that it sucks" soooooo. From watching videos and thinking it was cool and then downloading it. It really is awesome and the bad reviews are retarded I think. It's a Doom we needed something with a story line and new level design and all that.
Great graphics and nice atmosphere. Though I got stuck quite soon. Could not open the air locks.
The thing it's tied to a specific gameplay mod is ridiculous.
I completely agree with Cyborg_Putin's review. I couldn't have said it better. I think bifurcator_x did an outstanding job at the visuals, map design and the environment's ominous feel. A mix of classic doom with environments from doom 3 and of course the bloodshed from brutal doom. Music's great especially when you trigger a location where you battle spawned enemies. I really would like to see more from this than just the prologue because you sir have the talent. I did notice he created Quake roots which is another single-player campaign with a descent number of maps that I have yet to try.
The only reason why I give this mod a 9/10 is because like Cyborg_Putin had mentioned, Pinkys have a very fast charge attacks and if you get hit by one, your POV or screen tilts to one side (a crooked view) and there seems to be no way of getting out of it. It doesn't reset over time, doesn't correct itself after healing to full health, tried numerous key binds to get out of it, and even tried checking the advanced configurations of enemies to see if it could be disabled somehow in the options; it appears to be a bug. And the only way to get your screen back to normal is to restart from a save point or die.
Good work again bifurcator_x
this is fantastic
Yes,game,not mod : that is,a whole new f*cking game.
Props to the cyka blyat people for this high quality TC.
