  • Walk. Run. Fly. Look all around you, even up and down.
  • Choose from among 7 weapons (from the simple staff to the awesome Phoenix Rod).
  • Use arcane artifacts to unleash unearthly power on unsuspecting foes.

Very fun game and can be kinda of a challenge at some parts. I'd recomend that if you play this game that you get the doomsday source port since it allows you to take advantage of your current hardware and also you get to use your native resolution. I think what makes this game so great is the amazing level design that is accompanied with great enemy design will always be a great combo. Although I did not grow up playing this game and I was born after the game came out I did play hexen on the n64 growing up so I kinda knew what I was getting into and the graphics are just fine in my eyes I dont really see the need to install those stupid 3d model packs they kinda look like they ruin the the feeling of the game. If you are looking for a great classic fps this is the game to go to 10/10 would play more than a thousand hours.

I only got around to playing Heretic recently, and I was genuinely surprised at how well it held up. The game is fun, challenging, and good throughout. Some of the controls are a little obtuse at first glance until you get used to them (and button placement is not optimal), so you might want to try to get some configuration.

Some of the bosses can be a little difficult, but it's not that bad. Now the EXPANSION - that one seemed to crank the difficulty up to extremely high levels, so that might give you some trouble. However, it's only two of the five chapters included in the game, and it's all one package, so it's not a big deal.

A lot of fun, and it's held up a lot better than Doom itself has.

Great game First Fps i ever played as a young kid and its still great. If u liked DOOM DOOM 2 and Plutonia Experiment(3rd DOOM) youll love this. same gameplay as doom games but heres the FPS Revolution that this game introduced first game u can look up and down save items in an inventory for later use and FLY! The game made steps toward the advancement of FPS games and one other big difference betwen this and DOOM: U CAN EXPLORE ALL AREAS AND KILL ALL MONSTERS WITH LIMITED THREAT OF RUNNING OUT OF AMMO!!!!! (even when played on the hardest difficulty.) in DOOM if u kill every monster on every level and find evey item ur out of ammo by level 15 i like not having to run away when demons deserve to die!

Classic Doom engine FPS with a dark and mythical setting. Action-heavy and challenging. This was one of the best Doom engine shooters back in the day and improved on the original formula on almost every front.

Prepare to quick-save with each room you enter and pray the game doesn't unload a pack of monsters in your face. Recommended as much as I would recommend Doom for FPS fans.

This is an old game. Do not expect it to be on par to current fps standards. It has weird controls, and it's pretty hard.
But that's ok. This is a gem, one of the greatest FPS ever made with the technology the devs had at the time.

It's fun and a piece of gaming history.

Still here? Go on a search for gzdoom or Doomsday. These are supporting software that will give you better control, mouse support, better audio and refined visuals. Given the current native resolution of monitors, the refined visuals are specially important.
