Blood CM is NOT 100% accurate. I think the people who say that have never played the original game. It is the best attempt I have ever seen and for the most part it does look like Blood, but to a true Bloodite there is flaws. The physics suck, throwing TNT at a monster is disappointing, not like it was in the original where they'd rocket up into the air or their guts would fly around in such a cartoony manor. You can also hit Zombies while they are laying down. The burning animation is all wrong, there isn't even the sound when they first burst into flames (which I believe Monolith used the Duke 'thud/footstep' sound for that). Also the Fanatics tommy gun makes the same noise as the player's, but it was different in the original. Ok that is a little minor, but the physics are the main thing they need to sort out, if it is even possible, even kicking a zombie head isn't as fun. I am sad if people will be playing CM as a replacement for the original, they will be missing out on one of the funnest elements. The physics are the same as Dooms as of now.

True and the animations too.

But the guy who made bloodcm is making a java port for BLOOD, he reversed the engine but he is using the sourcecode of the alpha of blood if i remember, not sure.
You can see the progress here:

With more options and stuff, like a port, not just a mod ;) (who will need the original game to work).

So, Lucious had some troubles to finish XL engine with dark forces and the others games ?.... too bad... ):
It could be cool to have something for Dark Forces, at least.... MP with DF1 could be really fun ^^
