Review by Colin Phipps

"Underground" is a single level for Doom 2. It is almost all decorated in wooden textures. The main areas are not too bad, with features like stairs and decorations; however side areas were often just boring wooden walled boxes.

The level progression is unusual; basically the level is like a loop, you work through it once and get a keycard, then go around again and get another, hit a switch and reveal the exit. The secon time around lots of traps have opened to release some more monsters (though these traps show on the automap first time round too).

The actual gameplay is nothing special, generally not too hard, plenty of shells and health generally. There are some secrets, and the odd interesting fight. There is a demo included which shows some of the secrets though. Overall though, this level just doesn't make the grade.
