SummaryInnovative and original 'shoot-em-up' game in very imaginative environments
The GoodThis game may just be another 1st person action game, but it has themes and level designs that are rarely found. Heretic focuses on the destruction of D'Sparil, and the monsters that bar your way are highly original. Unlike most games, once you encounter D'Sparil, he is actually one of the smallest of the enemies, making him a hard target to kill. The most likable part of this game is the levels in which you play, which are labyrinthine and are hard to navigate as you need to complete certain tasks in a specific order to make gates open, etc. Makes for a long game play, if you are interested in finding all the secret areas.
The BadFor its time, it may have broken barriers with its graphics, but it is slightly outdated now. The pixelations may annoy you if you play this for too long. The default gamma/brightness settings may be a bit strainful for some people's eyes, but there are ways of adjusting this. One good way of over coming this is spawning the Torch for yourself: type G I M M E F 9
