Master Levels for Doom 2 does a good job of showing that you don't need to add any new content to make a good expansion. Either that or maybe an expansion for Doom 2 will always be good because even if it's subpar, you're still playing Doom 2. But Master Levels isn't subpar, far from it. The level design is top notch and extremely rememberable, and I was quite surprised that 3 or 4 of the levels actually had a plot! And an interesting one at that. For the majority of the levels you're just playing doomguy, but for these 3 to 4 levels, you play a cyberdemon thats actually been turned into a human! And sentenced to death, the cyberdemon fights back and ends with a finale against quite a few cyberdemons. This is easily one of the most impressive stories in a game that only uses .txt docs to explain everything! And by completing all the levels, I have been happily awarded the title of "Master of Destruction!" At least, according to the game... I highly reccomend everyone to play this and become a "Master of Destruction" too! And you should already have it, unless for some bizzare reason you don't own Doom Classic Complete. But why wouldn't you?

Awesome game, but if anyone else had texture issues with any of the doom games you just need to update the DOSbox included with the game.

I was surprised to find that these doom versions are not of a good quality. I have a GeForce gt 630 video card which should be fine. P2.13 processor. There apparently is no option to adjust the screen resolution. I do not have full mouse support the same as I did with the acual doom disks. There is no option to adjust or change how you move or fire. That is all preset as far as I can see.

This is a collection of 21 high quality custom levels for DOOM II originally released in late 1995, and I'd say it would be worth the purchase if Valve didn't remove the option of buying it individually. You must buy the classic DOOM pack to get it now. Of course, if you're going to play the Master Levels you'd do well to pick up the others as well.

The retail version of the Master Levels also contained 'Maximum Doom', about 1,830 amateur custom levels downloaded from the internet. It was iD's response to the shovelware discs containing thousands of DOOM levels of varying quality that were floating around at the time. You can read about it here and download it here if you really want to.

Doom is, hands down, one of the best first person shooter games ever made, if not THE best FPS in history. Whilst it has questionable graphics in comparrison to modern games, it was still way ahead of it's time, as was the Quake series and offers so much more than any of these crappy Call of Duty games do these days.
The entire Doom series was my childhood in a nutshell, I will never forget when my Dad first installed it and let us play when we were only little kids. We had so many hours of fun and so many different levels and difficulty settings to try and complete.

To sum it up, Doom, Doom II and Final Doom are some of the best games that were ever produced. Seriously, why WOULDN'T you want the whole Doom series?

John Anderson (Dr. Sleep)

Geryon: 6th Canto of Inferno (GERYON.WAD)
Minos' Judgement: 4th Canto of Inferno (MINOS.WAD)
Nessus: 5th Canto of Inferno (NESSUS.WAD)

Virgil's Lead: 3rd Canto of Inferno (VIRGIL.WAD)

Jim Flynn

They also contain 1830 Patch wads too.


Be prepared to visit hell!

Whether the Master Levels are worth picking up or not depends on what you want them for: If you simply want high quality Doom II levels, you should probably pass them up. While there are some good maps in here, there are also poorly designed frustraiting ones. There are countless Doom maps available for free, and many are better than these:

http://www.doomworld.com/idgames/

What's great about this set of levels, however, is the history that comes with them. These aren't called the "Master" levels for nothing. The guys who made these maps were pretty much the best-of-the-best at the time of its release. If you care about the history of Doom mapping, definitely pick these up! It's unfortunate that they can't be bought separately or with a copy of Doom II, rather than having to buy all the classic Doom games in a collection.
