SummaryA decent and fun game.
The GoodHeretic is indeed a good game. Based on id Software's famous Doom engine, Heretic is built on a similar kind of gameplay but in a completely different setting: a fantasy world, as opposed to a futuristic horror/sci-fi universe.
To put it simply, Heretic features:
- Decent graphics. Although I fail to see how the guys at Raven so-called improved the Doom engine (as quite frankly Heretic doesn't look nearly as good as the Doom series).
- Great controls and reasonable inventory management.
- Good level design; the game does not get tedious.
- Reasonable music. 'nuff said.
The BadAgain, it doesn't look nearly as good as Doom does; also, the variety (or lack thereof) of weapons is quite possibly the game's least positive aspect.
