Master Levels for Doom II is actually rather a interesting game, though sadly it has no story plots as its only about maps to choose from. Anyways, your main objective is just to complete the map, whatever you choose. It is indeed challenging when playing on high difficulty, no doubt about it. Besides difficulty, theres more you can add in the additional option, such as no respawn, and others.

Buy it if you are up for a challenge, its actually worth to buy. Though if you never experience Doom games, just stick with the original and Doom II, then if you are up for it then buy this.

tl;dr a 21 map expansion for DOOM II with exclusive levels created by renowned mappers in the community, they're pretty fun and it's worth picking up.

Tired of companies releasing shovelware CDs full of random WADs straight off idgames without giving iD a share of the revenue, iD contracted some of the best and most well known mappers in the DOOM community to make maps for iD's own official map pack.
This resulted in the 1995 release Master Levels for DOOM II.

The pack contains 20 single level wads (TEETH.WAD has a secret level, bringing the map count up to 21), almost an entire campaign worth of new levels.
Master Levels comes with a text mode frontend called Doom-It for launching individual wads in the collection.

Some parts of the original release were not included with the Digital version, such as Maximum Doom, which was a collection of 3201 random amateur maps downloaded off idgames. As you might expect these generally suffered in quality and had problems like some maps being DOOM 1 maps that were hastily ported to DOOM 2, which tended to break balance and cause additional problems. Some of the maps weren't even for DOOM but rather Heretic. However some of the maps were originally intended for Master Levels but didn't make it into the collection.
Other parts that weren't included were a poster, and id STUFF, a bunch of encrypted software that could be unlocked via phone order.

My thoughts on DOOM itself and the quality of the release here are the same as my other DOOM review.

Overall the quality of the map pack is great. The extra levels are a lot of fun and freshen up the DOOM experience.

A quick note, if you plan to play these using a modern ZDoom-compatible source port, check out Master Levels Menu Interface for ZDoom by Zippy, which is a replacement for Doom-It and allows you to launch the levels directly from the game.

I didn't really enjoy the Master Levels for DOOM II. You get 20 levels, some are too complicated, some are ok, and 6 that I liked. Plus it would always change my look keys into movement keys, so I couldn't look around and would have to restart the game after every level. It also crashed on me multiple times. I would only recommend this if you don't already have DOOM, DOOM II, or Final DOOM (since the only way to get the Master Levels for DOOM II is from the DOOM Classic Complete bundle), or if you are collecting DOOM or id Software games. I didn't like the Master Levels for DOOM II. (P.S. If your game doesn't launch you may have to delete the dosbox.exe file from "Master Levels of Doom" and copy the doxbox.exe file from Doom 2 over.) 4/10

Edit: I think it actually is included with DOOM II, but I could be wrong.
