  1. For either a first time fragger or a battle hardened veteran, Doom is simply superb. [GamesMaster]
  2. 90
    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.
  3. It rocks. Grab three friends (who aren't very good at FPS games), link up, and blow them away. [Spring 2002, p.32]
  4. 80
    Though switching weapons with the directional pad and both shoulder buttons takes a little time to get the hang of, the control scheme is tight and simple.
  5. All in all Doom is a fantastic port to the GBA, some things are missing, some things are toned down, but that same raw gameplay that changed the way we thought eight years ago has come across wonderfully.
  6. Even with a handful of miniscule changes, Doom remains immensely entertaining. [Dec 2001, p.118]
  7. 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.

    A Very Good port of the game of my childhood. (Except with the blood being green goo... -1 point for that) If you want to blast to demons back to hell on the go. Go buy this port today. Expand
