"I played the shareware demo and loved it, despite it giving me nightmares," wrote one user. Another user shared how terrifying the game was when they were a child.

Heretic received further praise from another user who called it a truly enjoyable game. Someone inquired about the difficulty level of Heretic compared to Hexen, and it was described as being more straightforward, similar to Doom.
