    Cool game. Unlimited agility. Tone is perfect. Monsters, I think they could be a bit more interesting, graphically and mechanically.

    Checkpoint mechanic is stupid, one of the stupidest I ever seen. But the game is balanced around restarting the level, which is what I'm doing for the second playthrough and having lots of fun. Still it would be nice to have a checkpoint system in ultra hard for a first playthrough that resets the state from that checkpoint onwards. I really don't understand what they were thinking with this.

    Chaingun is stupid. It's fun to use but on ultra hard is useless. It deals, all thing considered, way less damage than the shredders and it has very low accuracy and it slows you down. I think the weapon should be reworked.

    Overall I prefer a game like doom eternal because of the more elaborate combat mechanics and much more interesting variety in environment but this is a polished throwback with unlimited speed, less on rails level design, and a more consistent tone than eternal. Music is awesome

    Does this game have the horrible, completely obtuse "puzzles" that plagued Raven Soft games? Hexen II and Jedi Outcast in particular.

    The only puzzles in the game are related to secrets, and even then they are nowhere near some of the more tardo ones of Jedi Outcast. When it comes to regular progress through the levels "puzzles" don't get more elaborate than shooting big shiny buttons somewhere on the walls.

    only played through the 3rd place winner so far but it's pretty good.. the level editor in this game is fantastic and the amount of maps already available is good.. custom maps alone is worth buying the game in early access imo.. nice way to enjoy the game while still waiting for full release to play the campaign

    This game has all the good stuff on paper but when you sit down to play it, it's so dull, soulless and just BLAND and unfun, it's crazy.

    The puzzles were great. Be gone scrub.

    (obviously no modern game would dare have anything like that, retro or not).

    custom maps are always better than the main game
    they need to figure out how to get more enemy variety tho, i think the game only has like 3 or 4 enemies total

    Diablo1_reborn why do you not want them to actually add promised content to the game and finish it? the game has coasted on community mappers since its launch in EA. NOTHING SUBSTANTIAL HAS BEEN ADDED.

    I don't think that coop is waste of dev time. I always wanted to coop this game with a buddy of mine, so this is a nice feature to have.

    I wouldn't dismiss coop right yet. It's true that it will take dev time away from other hypothetical features, but the more interesting way to look at it is that it'll attract more players into the game. More players = more community made maps, and that's going to be the real meat and potatoes for the game. Also this is going to open up a whole new pandora's box of maps designed for coop in mind.

    I, and many others, don't give a shit about co-op. It should have been something they added at launch when they finished up their content. If they are going to create maps designed for co-op from now on then the game is absolutely decline.

    Yeah. I like Wolf 09 and consider it the only worthwhile/playable singleplayer FPS from like 2007-16 (or something like that), but I am under no illusion it is great. It is no classic.
