  1. For either a first time fragger or a battle hardened veteran, Doom is simply superb. [GamesMaster]
  2. Players who have already exhausted the experience have no reason to buy it again unless they are extremely eager to see it flourish on a handheld.
  3. Considering we’re talking about a Game Boy title here, Doom is incredible.
  4. It rocks. Grab three friends (who aren't very good at FPS games), link up, and blow them away. [Spring 2002, p.32]
  5. One of the things that made Doom so much fun back then, and still carries over today, is that feeling that danger (and madness) lay around each corner.
  6. It's just as good on the GBA as it was in the old days.

    You’ll have fun, and you’ll get a portable taste of gaming history that will remind you of why we’re doing all this fiddling around with these plastic doohickeys in the first place.

    Excellent fun that's hurt only by its unestablished multiplayer mode and its overall been-there-done-that feeling.

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!

    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 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 »
