Simple, unsophisticated but hardcore shooter
If you've exhausted the over-the-top charms of Doom and Castle Wolfenstein, then Necrodome will be right up your alley. A blood-soaked mod based on the Doom engine, this basically takes everything that was great about the classic sci-fi/horror shooter and dials it up to the max. Weapons, enemies, levels, you name it, everything here is more hardcore, more extreme and ultimately more fun than ever before. Those looking for complex storylines and in-depth characters are advised to steer clear of this, but if you are looking for is serious shooting mayhem, then this is the place to find it. The action is fast and frenetic, the weapons are loud, dirty and unbelievably insane, while the gore is intense even compared to Doom or Duke Nukem. The graphics share those games' old fashioned charms, with chunky sprites that just beg you to blow them away with extreme prejudice and full-on sound effects that really bring the nightmare world of horror and violence to terrifying life. This is not a game of subtlety or sophistication and shooters like this are rare in this day and age. However, if you want to see how it was done in the old-school days, then this must be played.
