I can t respond to certain youtube comments by authors who are not using google apparently it states linked comment so the system is fucked and i ll just have to respond in the hopes this is read. I hereby publicly announce that cryptic passage is my most hated episode, while it can apparently fool most people with it s impressive use of original architecture the gameplay is imbalanced and boring as shit that it drives me to tears. Your given far too much ammunition, the levels are big and empty with too much mundane exploration and backtracking, completely devoid of the essential ingredient missing from the original episodes which was a subtle yet powerful combination of non linear and interconnected level design making it extremely replayable and flawless. This allowed the player to choose what area they could explore first to their heart s content resulting in greater freedom of moment, but most importantly the interconnected aspect derives from the fact their was consistently more then one way to approach a room or objective. A classic example being the front entrance to morningside cemetary on the first level where you could storm through the front door or take a more subtle and tactical approach through the windows resulting in a far more easier yet slower method of execution via several defense points for cover. I have only played cryptic passage times in my life which gives a favourable impression of my lack of appeal for the episode. Any argument questioning it s value with regards to being canon is nullified because it was by a rd party sunstorm interactive not monolith, and if one pays attention the level episode is cp cp it is not episode which is in fact the bloodbath or deathmatch levels in the original game. So in short cryptic passage sucks, i think plasma pak is a far superior product because the gameplay and difficulty is ramped up to hardcore, it s my favorite nd episode.

Hello there! Excellent blood devoted videos pack. Why don t you play cryptic passage in deathmask style? It has the best level design imo. And what do you think about playing every blood level from pistol start similar to doom is it enjoyable? I see not so good weapon placement and lack of ammunition at all for this.
