None of them are well designed. I was thinking about adding Freeway, but the others on the list are better representatives.

Besides, Stadium is just a few sectors and a very low key ending to the base game. Hotel Hell doesn't look like a hotel, but a lobby with a swimming pool. It has some terrible gameplay ideas like a Battlelord in a cramped room. Rabid Transit has a lame subway design, and some parts are just weird bullshit that don't belong there.

blood had the most consistent art direction out of all the major build games. the clay models were extremely well made, and the low texture resolution felt more natural for the simple level geometry. most importantly, the action in blood had a more even flow than in the other build games, and the enemies gave better feedback when hit.

another neat thing about blood's level design was that it didn't rely on enemies spawning out of nowhere to keep you on your toes, at least not in the original episodes.

Blood's textures were actually higher res than Duke's. Play one game in DOSBox vanilla for a while then switch to the other one and you'll see Blood's textures were actually noticeably higher res (especially if you play at 800x600 native or more). It might not seem that way because Blood's colour palette is not as vibrant as Duke's but texture res is actually crisper.

I love Blood but I have to admit I don't understand Duke Nukem or Shadow Warrior. Shadow Warrior's levels, in particular, are just confusing key hunts. Duke's levels in particular are so thoroughly greymudbrown that they make Quake look like a goddamn kaleidoscope. I think Duke an Lo Wang are just unfunny, but I find Caleb kind of compelling.

Also, I'm just going to admit that I'm very, very partial to Blood's midnight movie atmosphere that switches back and forth from carnivalesque cheesy horror to genuinely spooky whenever it feels like it.

I don't understand what Spaceport is doing there at all, and Fusion Station is mostly interesting because of its environmental design.

Death Row, I dunno, I haven't replayed it yet, but for me it was always overshadowed by Toxic Dump (that is not to say that I like it, but I definitely remember more about it, than I do about Death Row).

Just compare it to Ion Maiden's brilliant metro map, it looked so real while not being clusterfucked at all.

As for Lunar Reactor, yea it's awesome at parts, but not consistent. Spaceport and Fusion Station look so formidable with their height.

Here's my ranking of BUILD engine games:

1. Duke 3D
Has the best level design and enemy design, the weapons feel satisfying, feels like a finished and extremely polished product. I can't really think of much wrong with Duke 3D that isn't just improvements added to the game to make it better, like alternate weapon fire or whatever.

2. Blood
Blood has a lot of great ideas, but not all of them seem to have been worked out. It still shines in just how much of a breath of fresh air it was, but just needed some extra work to fix up some of the levels and iron out some of the more egregious bugs and it probably would be better than Duke 3D

3. Redneck Rampage
This game is garbage, but in a fun way. It's kind of like the equivalent of a B-movie for video games, the level design I thought was surprisingly good and the expansion packs were great. It's a shame the weapons feel like trash with the projectiles pass through enemies a lot and abysmal range on most non-projectile weapons, and the alien vixens being purely unfun bullet sponge enemies that can also kill you almost instantly, but playing this with a "This game is garbage" mindset makes it pretty fun. I almost enjoy it as much as Blood.

4. Shadow Warrior
I've just never been able to get into it, and I have tried so much (and probably will try again), the weapons feel awful, the enemies are lame and every level I have played has just been a smear of brown textures. I hope I can enjoy this game some day, but it hasn't happened yet.

Extra notes:
Ion Maiden is shaping up to be a really great BUILD game, if it adds a few extra weapons, enemies and powerups while keeping the same quality of level design, this is on course to be my second favourite BUILD game.

I haven't played the other BUILD games like NAM or TekWar, so place them wherever you want.

Give Shadow Warrior another chance. It might feel a little weird at first but it's got solid level design with some of the best secrets in a build game, and, at least to me, probably the best feeling movement.

It also of course has the best (katana) and second best (fists of fury) melee weapons out of all of them.

>> No.4905662

Duke's weakest link is it's melee weapon. A mighty boot kick should be stronger than standard punches, maybe as strong as a katana strike. The steroids should work like Doom's berserk pack as well to make it even better (more power addition, no time limit).

If you like it more than me, that's great, I just haven't enjoyed much of what I have played over the many times I have tried to get into it. To me, everything about SW sounds great on paper but when it gets around to playing it I get bored pretty quickly.

I probably will try playing it again sometime soon, and again, I hope I can just get to enjoy the game.

I actually did play the remake and I hated that too, I really dislike the whole "series of arenas" style of level design where you get locked into an area to fight a few waves of enemies.

It's not a BUILD game, but Outlaws is a great BUILD-contemporary FPS game that I'd really recommend to anyone who hasn't played it already.

>Playing the remake of Shadow Warrior, and absolutely loving it, I feel I should give the original another chance
When you say remake, do you mean the reboot/prequel from 2013?

>> No.4907858

Yeah. I really liked the swordplay a lot.
On easy mode, enemies are slow reacting enough that you can seriously wade into combat with just button mash with the sword, and this works an a lot of the enemies, keep moving and mashing and you can beat down even the enemies with shields.
It feels kind of powerful, if cheap.
On higher difficulties this stops working though, and you would have to adapt more and fight smarter. Hard mode is intense and fun, IMO.

The game features a lot of "here's an arena setup, fight these enemies until you can move on" (sometimes by locking you in, or making you break seals, sometimes enemies are just in your way and killing them all is the pragmatic thing to do).
If you liked Doom 4's combat a lot, you'll probably like Shadow Warrior 2013 a lot, if you only tolerated Doom 4's fixation on locked in arenas but saw that as a flaw, you might still like Shadow Warrior 13, but look at that as the same kind of flaw.
But if you absolutely *hated* the way Doom 4 locks you into arenas for combat, you will probably not like Shadow Warrior 2013 at all.

Meanwhile, if you actually liked Shadow Warrior 2013, there's quite a lot of things to really hate about its sequel, where it basically turns into Borderlands, except with the same 7 maps endlessly recycled for the entire fucking game, and whereas the previous game had a varied monster roster where each kind filled a different role rather neatly (a little like classic Doom 1 & 2, or Duke Nukem 3D, actually), the sequel has a roster which looks more diverse superficially, but in reality, it's extremely dumbed down and a lot of the enemies are just cheap reskins with mindless behaviors.
Not an atrocious game, but a very big downgrade. For every step forward they took (weapons, graphics, etc), they took two, sometimes three steps backwards.

There's things for some people to like, but I can see totally why some would not find SW13 (and especially its sequel), particularly appealing.

I would love to see some Blood/SW maps by Allen Blum. The leveldesign in these games are really inferior to Duke leveldesign.

>> No.4908267

I will never understand the hype around the duke level design. ep 2 and 3 had some pretty cool maps, but ep 1 consisted mainly of ultra-linear corridor maps, and ep 1 and 3 were thematically inconsistent.

Play Ep4 and Caribbean.

>saying ep. 1 is worse than ep. 2. or 3

Lack of standards.

>> No.4908532

ep 2 was pretty much flawless. it captured the space aesthetic perfectly, and it was consistently open-ended. I loved being able to look out of the windows and see other explorable parts of the map.

So can somebody said up a /vr/ BloodGDX multiplayer server? I'd do it but I don't know how to. Let's fucking play some Blood.

He’s referring to Devolver’s Megaton Edition, which included the three licensed third party expansions. They hadn’t been available for more than a decade at the time due to the company that made them dissolving- turns out that the rights for those expansions hadn’t been recovered. So their inclusion is “illegal”.

It was pretty cool getting ahold of them through that, but yeah on the whole Megaton was a shitty port. Unbearable mouse acceleration killed it for me. You could just take the group files from megaton and play it through eDuke, but that hardly makes up for the shortcomings of the release.

>> No.4912104

I have one up right now. It's only waiting for a second player but I can change the number if more people want to play Bloodbath. Just played for a couple hours with anons from /doom/, fun stuff.

>> No.4912272

Megaton was ok as a console port, IMO, and Duke Caribbean was great, but as a whole it does have some shortcomings.

20th Anniversary is a bit better of a port, and though it doesn't have Caribbean, the Alien World Order episode is pretty good.
