  1. At its very heart, it’s Doom, and the graphics can be bad, the music can stink the place out, and the Cyber Demon can be taken out, but there’s still that sick satisfaction that comes with blowing up a ring of barrels around a group of demons and watching them explode into a pile of goo.

    Straight dumb, violent fun, regardless of how many times you've seen it before. [Jan 2002, p.233]

    The action can get fierce, the motion is fairly smooth and the four-player battle mode is an absolute blast. [Nov 2001, p.148]
  4. The 1993 PC original might look blocky by 2001 standards, but the GBA version fares worse, with intensely pixilated visuals that detract from an otherwise admirable port of the classic first-person shooter.

This game is a port of the original smash-hit PC version of DooM released about 1993. It's a fun shoot-em-up, with Hell-spawn demons to kill and maze-like levels to go through. Several aspects of the violence were cut out (why!?), but it retains the great gameplay of the predecessor. Buy this game! It's very rare now, so don't waste your chance if you ever find it!

The game Doom is the seventh best FPS for the GBA and the second released for the system. Doom was first released for the PC back in 1993. The game was awesome. Eight years later the game is now portable. And yes, it is still awesome. Everything from the original is here except for some minor elements that don't detract from anything. Doom is back, back with a vengeance! Full Review »
