  1. This would have been a ho-hum port of a game that's already been ported to at least a dozen platforms over the years, but it's DOOM's online action which really makes it soar.
  2. While other faithful ports of have seen their fair share of action on Live already, Doom trumps them all with its intense action and countless secrets.
  3. Doom is the rarest of retro games, in that you can enjoy it just as much as you did when it was first released. Better still, you can appreciate it with the benefit of 20-20 hindsight, and see not only how enormously influential it is, but how perfect its design was from the very beginning.
  4. A must-have classic. If you consider yourself a shooter fan, you simply must get this game.
  5. The revolutionary shooter has been adapted to the Xbox 360 in all its archaic glory and, amazingly, is still as fun and visceral as it was all those years ago.

    Doom is still a blast, but it could have been so much more. [Holiday 2006, p.86]

    Online play -- including both co-op and the deathmatches that made Doom such a phenomenon in the first place -- can hardly even be considered "play." The lag is unbearable, the framerate excruciating. Aiming is nearly impossible.

    The ORIGINAL DOOM! Oh my good, DOOM 1! Without all of these stupid Doom 2, Doom 3, Doom 4, Doom 5, Doom 6... All I am saying is back in theThe ORIGINAL DOOM! Oh my good, DOOM 1! Without all of these stupid Doom 2, Doom 3, Doom 4, Doom 5, Doom 6... All I am saying is back in the day, Doom the original was the bomb. I still love it: I have it on my laptop. Sure the graphics suck, but it is so addicting and fun. Plus, it is probably the first FPS ever made. WITHOUT DOOM, THERE WOULD BE NO COD! NO BATTLEFIELD OR HALO, OR WHATEVER YOU LIKE THESE DAYS!!!!

Though not prettyA fun, action packed, good old 2000s Arcade game that makes you feel like your actually fighting against the forces of hell. Though not pretty looking compared to today standards, this games still has the good things of modern day horror games: different challenging difficulty, unexpected jump scares, crazy monsters, awesome weapons, crazier bosses, hidden secrets and Easter eggs, and an interesting story. So if you liked Wolfenstein play its twin brother and still have a blast! Expand

    Way better than crappy Halo. or Call of Duty. The only thing that comes close is Half-Life.

It blew everyone's minds. Granted it was running on a beefed up version of Wolfenstein's engine, but Doom made it f**king awesome!

    Even though it is graphically dated, it is still fun to play to this day. Is there anything more satisfying than ripping through an army of Imps with your shotgun and Chainsaw.

    Evil Dead: This is the video game you were supposed to make!!!!!!

    Overall:
    A legendary game that gave birth to the modern FPS genre.

    I never played doom 1 before it came with doom 3, so I never knew what all the rage is about. I didn't realize I would have so much funI never played doom 1 before it came with doom 3, so I never knew what all the rage is about. I didn't realize I would have so much fun playing it. It was more fun than a lot of the modern games out nowadays. The shooting and hit detection was spot on and the shotgun so satisfying. The game was both challenging and fun to find secrets and get to the exit. Expand
