Some notalgia strucken retro-sickness patients appraise and exalt this game to the plane of the Holy. Yes i agree with them. This game is "Holy Crap".

Note : I checked a few times the release dates of Quake(1996) and Heretic(1994). That two year gap means centruies in technical and gameplay sense between these two games.

I first encountered Heretic: Shadow of the Serpent Riders as a shareware game, when we bought a new computer featuring Windows 3.11. Although Shareware (the first level, The Docks, was all that you could play) it was one of the games I enjoyed playing, although it regularly gave me frights, with monsters popping out from behind pillars, and only the unidirectional roars to tell me that they "might" be lurking around a corner.

I played it enough to warrant a full purchase via an unlock code, and the game proved to have a great deal of longevity. The stats at the end of each level, gave you feedback on no. of monsters killed, secrets discovered and items found. This lead to a great deal of replaying and backtracking to try and find each little hiding place.

I never really read the manual, and the plot is really inconsequential anyway, this is by no means a narrative driven game, suffice to say your elven race was slaughtered as they refused to believe in the deity of the "Serpent Riders" and were slaughtered as Heretics. You, the sole elven survivor are out to seek revenge.

Today it's legacy is questionable. The genre of Fantasy FPS, is non-existent, instead we have a modern warfare or sci-fi bias that the greater legacy games, Doom, and Quake popularized. Heretic is of course from the same period. (It uses the Doom Engine). Yet has had far less overall impact on the trend of FPS fantasy, which is rather something of a pity, as in an oversaturated market, this genre has potential. The only games that might have built from this core concept is of course Dark Messiah of Might and Magic (includes more brawling combat) and the recent Lichdom.

It has not aged well, the lack of resolution (it runs out of DosBox), poor textures and flickering lights may lead to eye strain, but the overall feel of the game is still enjoyable. It has none of the complexity and strategic gaming that later titles show, but it does sport excellent level design and exploration/puzzle mechanics, that aren't so common in modern FPS, as well as gothic interiors, and smooth gameplay.
(Definitely a game to settle down to with some Death Metal on the side!)

That skull is still scaring me s***less!

This game and Doom 2 were one of my absolute favorites during my childhood and I must say that they have aged well. Whether it's for nostalgia or you're looking for an epic-beyond-any-means fps, this game is a solid A+ choice.

Only thing left to say is that you HAVE to buy it.

10/10 experience. :)

Heretic: Shadow Of The Serpent Riders *8/10

Developed by Raven Software using and improving id's DooM engine. So this essentially is another FPS with significant new elements, compared to DooM standards.
This title puts us in the role of Corvus ( posthumous name given in the sequel), one of the last elves hunted by monsters from other dimensions, headed by D'Sparil, one of the Serpent Riders. Ok, like any other FPS of those times the story is completely useless, but in this case it's a very useful excuse to give the game a strong fantasy atmosphere. So there won't be zombies or devils, but Gargoyles, mummies, mages and minotaurs. There won't be guns but ther will be wands, ethereal crossbows and other magic weapons. There are more news compared to DooM: items. They're not just health powerups but they're proper items you may carry and use at your own discretion. These are the likes of health, damage powerup, teleportation in disguise of quartz flasks, Tomes of power, Chaos device... And many other items with different use. This kind of system seriously improves the gampeplay from DooM's standard, adding that creative spice to the classic "shooteverythingthatmovesandfindthekeyfortheexitdoor".
As in DooM, Heretic has three episodes made of 9 levels each. I was quite surprised to see that this release includes the other 2 expansion episodes from Shadow of the Serpent Riders edition which is a free upgrade I never heard about until now O.o (my bad).
As usual this game is released with DosBox to launch with. Fortunately they didn't even try to clumsily implement any mouse configuration as done in the horrible DooM releases.

+++PROs+++
  • FANTASY. Clearly the prettiest innovation of the game is the fantasy atmosphere giving a creative new look to FPS. You explore buildings, which are not stations but castles or fortress with mosaic glass, while outside you find water and terrain. The settings obviously force the use of new type of weapons: magic weapons (my favourite are the necromancer gauntlets of course, the chainsaw equivalent... XD). And of course the implementation of new and innovative items.
  • GAMEPLAY. Besides the ability to look up and down, there are other innovations and most of them can be grouped inside the new inventory system. Now you can pick up items to be used in other moments at will, and they range from simple health replenisher, damage bonus and other disguised as perfect fantasy items. One of the most useful and innovative are the "wings of wrath" a big name for a flying device, a new and important powerup considering you can't jump in this game. Another interesting is the Hourglass, which is just a powerful proximity mine. More possibilities means more fun.
  • MUSIC. I have to point it: it's not as bad@$$ as in the DooM games, but it's very nice, and suits the atmosphere. I've made covers of some of these tunes too in Youtube... B-)
  • MODS & COMMUNITY. You can find mods, levels and so on. But most importantly custom ports with graphical and gameplay improvement or guides, both in steam and in other sites, with tricks and advices on replacing DosBox with better ports and implementing the Steam Overlay.
---CONs---
  • STEAM OVERLAY. As usual, like on every other old steam release running on DosBox, there's no Steam Overlay.
