Review by DrCrypt

Too hard for me. I understand Mike Watson, due to too many complaints about the ease of runaway, decided, with sado-masochistic glee to make a sequel that would challenge even DOOM gods. Well, I'm no god, and I'm a keyboarder, and I got my ass beat down -hard-. It took me like an hour to beat this level on Hurt Me Plenty, and I'm still going to give it a "5" for difficulty.

Honestly, I think its too hard, too hard to the frustration level. The last portion of the level is you jumping around a small ring with a cyberdemon, desperately trying to hit three switches in correct order so you can telefrag the mofo. Did I mention you have almost no health and that the room is so small that splash damage almost always nails you? Lots of revenants, barons, hell knights, and cacos to test your fist power on. I got creamed.

Maybe its just because I can't quite deal with the fact that this level proves me a wuss, but I don't think its as good as the first one. Insanely hard... so hard it isn't really fun.
