Sacrifice in Blood

 

 

 

 

DIFFICULTY RATING

Much like Sacrifice in Blood you will have to be on your toes and be prepared to be defending your ass off right from the get go. As you begin you have a Hellknight and two former humans standing in front of you facing away. I don't recommend disturbing them right away. the Hellknight will smoke you and you'll have to start over. Start by opening the door to the right of you after you collect some ammo. There are about 8 gazillion Imps and Cacodemons in there but believe me, you'd rather be facing them at the beginning than trying to mess with that Hellknight in closed quarters. There is tons of ammo but Health is at a premium after you've been toasted by Hells minions about a thousand times in the first 2 minutes of play so conserve it as best as possible (and your ammo too cuz you ARE going to need it).

 

Playability

This wad is definitely a fighting mans dream. If you're looking for bad guys to toast - this is your level. There are more bad guys in here than you can possibly even imagine I think. You WILL need Zdoom for this level because as the author so succinctly states - It will crash vanilla Doom2 like a cheap car. There is just WAY too much going on in this level for Doom2 to deal with on its own so you will need a port be it Zdoom, Legacy or whatever.
 

 

Level Design

Jon builds lots of detail into his levels as well as putting plenty of badasses in. You WILL be impressed with the amount of detail that went into this design. You just can't help it. He doesn't use alot of tricks like some authors (3d floors, etc..), just good solid design elements and plenty of detail

 

You SHOULD get to know this guys work.
