SummaryDoom + medieval scenery = Heretic
The GoodRaven introduced here some interesting gizmos to the game - you can look up and down and fly. There's also an inventory, so you can carry with you some magical items, for example:
- quartz flasks, which heal you
- tomes of power, which make weapons work in a different way
- morph ovums, which turn your enemies into chickens (and you, if you're not careful)
- and torches, rings of invulnerability, and more.
Music is brilliant (however not so brilliant as in Hexen), it's scary and gripping. My personal favourites are tracks from E1M4 and E2M4. Map design and graphics are as good as those from Doom.
The BadIt's sometimes too similar to Doom - most of weapons are just repainted Doom weapons, and gameplay is almost unchanged - you run through rooms fulfilled with monsters and from time to time you search for keys. Also, multiplayer is the same as in Doom - only cooperative and deathmatch are present here.
