Homage to Nine Inch Nails in Doom in 1995 was not really stupid. On the contrary, it was super cool.

4:28 i hate this part on the doom 3 bfg edition version its just so frustrating 😠
ch282 (22 days ago)
i had to replay this map because i ran out of ammo. wow, this is hard. thanks for the walkthrough.
ch282 (22 days ago)
from doom.wikia.com: "On Ultra-Violence, it is believed to be one of the hardest levels not only of the episode but also in the entire Doom series. On this difficulty, there are no medikits or stimpacks; any additional health is limited to nine health bonuses, and there is only one piece of green armor."

The original soundtrack for this level (and the last level from first episode) was really dope. Unfortunately, you had to have an old PC (used to play doom with a 1994 PB !) to enjoy it. Here, the modern soundcard can't render the soundtrack and you end having this one...
BigMacDavis (1 month ago)
Oh, man, how right you are! I still have an old Win98 machine and I sometimes whip it out and play Doom using the Doom95 launcher from the Doom Collector's Edition CD. This music is 10x creepier than these modern renditions.

Wowie, lots of comments, so... pardon if this is a repeat of information you were well aware of, but the folks at Id's love of Nine Inch Nails goes beyond this simple callout, as they then commissioned NIN front man and founder Trent Reznor (yes, the Super Mario World Mini-boss is named after him too) to do composition work for the Quake OST.

I believe Thy Flesh Consumed is set on Earth, because you see the skies with orange clouds? They look like the same clouds we see in the episode 3 ending sequence, which happens to be in the green fields of Earth as the story implies, so maybe they are the same clouds.

I disagree with "limited ammo". You get a lot of shotgun ammo due to the number of shotgun guys.

The best way to comprehend where this map takes place on is Mars. The sky looks similar to inside of Mars, and I think that UAC has required you to clean out more bases on Mars. The sky of Earth at the end of Inferno is a complete mistake. Orange sky is as hellish as Hell or hell sect of Mars.
What's good about this map is that it's relatively SHORT. Plutonia, TNT, Doom 2 levels are usually longer
ruslan smirnov (1 year ago)
I did not know that picking health bonuses triggers hell. Such videos are like full manuals included. Thank you! P.S. The opera voice playing on this level is worth a 10 thousand theatre to hear. And such level titles as this particular level, plus "Perfect Hatred", "Unruly Evil", "House of Pain" and many others are just masterpieces of genre.

Do you wanna know something else that is stupid about this map? If you lower that NIN logo, before you got the blue key. and you accidentally step on it while you are getting the key. you will be trapped in that room, and the game glitches up.
Doom Guy (2 years ago)
this level is broken for me. its immposible to get past the part where you get the blue key because as soon as I run out the baron is blocking my path
Optimus6128 (2 years ago)
This and the next map are the hardest imho. Then it gets easier. There is hardly enough spaces and too many strong enemies in tight spaces. Also the NIN looked like a trap to me, I would stop and be enclosed with monsters inside. I sometimes was out of ammo and had to dispatch 2-3 Barons if I wanted the 100% kills. So I went with punching very slowly and save-load because I died. But your suggestion is great.
htomerif (2 years ago)
I shouldn't have to say this, but I guess it was a long time ago. NIN - Nine Inch Nails, did the soundtrack to Quake, which I believe was in production at the time of the release of this doom episode (1995). Just as the (later removed) swastika in an early doom level was a hint that a new wolfenstein was being produced, so this was a hint that quake was being produced.

yoyoyoshio267 (2 years ago)
I find it very curious that id found the need to sneak in biblical references, it's still really cool and adds kinda the weird and disturbing part of religion, but it's still a little odd to put in, but then again, you literally go through hell in Doom so I guess it makes some more sense...
andre olm (2 years ago)
I hate this and the next level -.- there are many doom 2 levels easier than this just because you have the guns there!

It would've been cool if they composed original music for this episode especially since Episode 3 consisted of so many recycled tracks.

SaturnineXTS (2 years ago)
The best way to explain the setting of these levels is Earth. The sky is that of Earth, obviously. The levels take place in a hellish fortress constructed just outside the passage out of Hell to secure the invasion and make sure the Doomguy couldn't come back. It's even got a brand new Mastermind assigned to lead it. The fact that Hell has invaded Earth also explains why these levels contain many more enemies (and stronger ones too) - Hell dedicated the most resources thus far to the invasion of Earth, and this fortress had extreme strategic importance.
Aldo Cascio (2 years ago)
You hit the nail on the head about the difficulty in this map. Its all about your route and conserving your ammo. As a kid I thought "Hey cool rockets" then thought "hey not cool 5 barons".

angeldeb82 (3 years ago)
I see you have been reading these Bible parts and their meanings, for that matter.  I'm very religious, myself.  And BTW, this takes place in a hell-torn earth where you have to save what's left of humanity before you move on to Doom II.  And I can't wait for this soon!  :)
sonicdoommario (3 years ago)
I believe Ultimate Doom was released so that Doom could have a retail release. Before Ultimate Doom was released, you could only order Doom over the phone, by calling 1-800-IDGAMES. Plus, id Software made it so that you could patch up to Ultimate Doom for free if you had the original, registered Doom. Also, for the NIN secret, the easiest way to get credit for the secret is to walk across the floor before it lowers completely to the ground, revealing the NIN logo. The secret is tagged on the skulled floor around the logo.
Commander Rex328 (5 months ago)
That too...but also to run it without using commands on Win 95 without DOS...and prepare the release and speed up the hype for Doom II

Whats that other switch for in the imp room? I press it and nothing happpens.
Optimus6128 (2 years ago)
+dangerdavefreestyle I also wondered about that even if I always pressed it once when I play this level. I opened the level in doom builder to investigate. It has an interesting function. There is the room where you stop over NIN and a square wall rises. Now,. there is a chance if you step over NIN and runs very fast to the exit to get above this wall outside. Now you have that room blocked from the inside. That switch will lower this wall again, if you somehow managed to run out and there were still items/enemies inside you forgot. Maybe that's one way to trap these barons too. And then more carefully prepare your weapons, lower the wall and go get them. Another interesting aspect, a place where I lost, if you raise that floor and stay on top of it it will crush you slowly. I lost accidentally like this once running away from the barons but stuck in a corner while this was raising. I though at first it was only crushers from above that kill you. But this function says "floor raises to 8 below lowest ceiling (crushes)". Is it a Ultimate Doom function? Or maybe it's used in other places in Doom 1/2?

Trent Reznor from Nine Inch Nails composed the music for Quake, another iD game, hence the connection.

+Thagomizer Yep, E4M4 is one of my favorite smaller maps of episode 4.
Alex (3 years ago)
This level is insanely hard, even on "I'm too young to die." I don't remember well the other levels, but I think I could say this one beats the other E4 levels in difficulty.

Couple things....first, in the back of the acid pit (in the beginning) where the Imps are. there are two shields which are BOTH switches. The one on the right if fine, but what does the other one do?? Next, when you go into the room behind the blue door, if you aren't fast enough when you collect the blue key, you will actually get STUCK up there and will have NO way out!! It really sucks, because in any other rising platform or elevator in DOOM there's a switch that will lower allowing you to escape --- NOT so here!  lol Oh, and in the beginning you say you don't know where this level takes place. We DO know...don't we? At the end of DIS it talks about what was going on back on the surface (Earth?) while 'you' were battling the demons in Hell. Or am I mistaken??
Mossy500A (7 days ago)
The second switch lowers the skull walls with the NIN secret, should you escape the room before the walls close up on you. If you get trapped, there is a switch by the entrance, you can reach it, if you are not killed while stuck. Also, Episode 4 takes place on Earth, so it's like a prequal to Doom 2. This is your first encounter with demons on Earth, since it's revealed in Doom 2 that they found a way to Earth before you got back.
josef733 (4 years ago)
I'm currently playing on "Hurt Me Plenty" and my god was this mission hard since there are SOOO many things to kill and you usually run out of ammo. Then the baron shows and you better make sure you have enough ammo.

Raziya the Ravager (4 years ago)
Hell yeah NIИ! I knew about that secret already, but it's good to see it get some publicity XD I think you're right about the difficulty of this level. Not looking forward to doing it with respawns and kamikazes... but I didn't know about that secret exit to the red key room, so hopefully that'll save my life. Thanks for that, Mac!
Raziya the Ravager (4 years ago)
Yeah dude, Nine Inch Nails XD Why do I see you everywhere I post? Not that I mind, it's just funny XD Ya stalker lol

By the way, I do everything like you and I get 50% secrets in this level ;/ I thought that I was doing something wrong, but I tried planty of times. Maybe it's something wrong with Steam version? I should buy DVD. In Steam version there is no even announcement when you found secret.

You didn't push a face-switch near red door (3:57). I wonder it only calls enemies or does something else?

this level is harder than E4M2. I prefer more monsters but at least have ammo. Here I run out of ammo and I have to kill 3 barons and spectors with my hand, which is impossible
nikolapekovicar (1 year ago)
Regarding Doom Wiki saying E4M2 being the hardest official Doom series level, I'd say that excludes Plutonia. I'm _pretty_ sure MAP32 of Plutonia is quite a bit harder than E4M2
Iiii i i i (1 year ago)
Actually Doom Wiki said E4M2 is harder than this level, which is absolutely correct. I agree with the wiki too. What you said with "Take your time" doesn't make ANY sense because that's waiting for more monsters to kill you. Next level is harder than this level due to the fact that there are 12 Barons of Hell, you get enough medikits but somehow you may actually get attacked even after you grab all medikits. Here, at least, are no Cacodemons or Cyberdemons. Also the only damaging is nukage, which if you have no radiation suit, let alone armor, you will take 5% damage. The only trouble in this map is that you must kill 5 Barons of Hell with no medikits and only shotgun, chaingun, and rocket launcher, while the next map does way, way, WAY more trouble than this one has. By the way, who the hell cares about that there is limited space in a map? No one! So you must have made up "E4M1 is harder than E4M2" in your own imaginary Doom world! But at first, I heard that you did think E4M2 was harder than this!
