So, who here has played this through recently? It came with the id super pack, and I'd been planning on playing it for a while but didn't get around to it until just now. Beat the game a few hours ago, and I have to say that it's definitely worth checking out if you're a fan of old-school DOOM game play but with some significant twists and modifications.

I really loved that game back in the day. I would love to play it again with updated graphics and AI.

I only ever played the shareware version. Might be worth giving it another go. Does the ID pack give you better graphical options like higher res/wide screen support?

Yep Great. But somehow I preref Hexen..,
But finished both. Great games.
And becouse there is no way to up the resolution in DosBox, there is plenty of modern ports. Just quite hard to find one .wad doom engine port that plays everything in vanilla way and only allow to up the res. There is mostly 10000 of not needed options which ruin my vanilla experience

That's what I use when I want to revive old memories, it even has a 3D renderer (although I don't like it... I like it the way it was when I played it in my first PC, a 486 DX50 with a Cirrus Logic and 4MB of RAM, ah... glorious old times haha) and you can have widescreen and tons of other things, plus it's compatible with Doom, Doom 2, the Ultimate version, some WADs, Heretic and even Hexen so... give it a try :p

Hexen, its sequel, is a much better game IMO. Had a ton of atmosphere and really clever level design/puzzles.

Have you ever played Strife? That was a sweet game that should get more recognition, great FPS-RPG. I would like a sequel or remake to that and Heretic or Hexen as well.

I remember this one. Great game. Confusing sequels though.

Heretic
Hexen
Hexen II
Heretic II (which is a 3rd person game and not much to do with the first 3 games?)

Hexen II was a graphics powerhouse back in the day... I remember looking at the pics thinking I wont get much better than that! ::p:

GZDOOM is what you want! OpenGL baby!

I play in 4:3 mode on my 16:10 monitor because I hate messing with aspect ratios and I love seeing the HUD (which doesn't scale completely to 16:10)

Heretic, man that brings back memories. I played that game on the first PC I built myself in 6th grade. AMD K6 processor for the win! Anyone remember, Witchhaven (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Witchaven)?

I LOVED Rise of the Triad. So much that I bought it again on GOG, even though I have the CD version that my dad bought back in the day (the Site License CD, for $80!)
