  1. This Xbox 360 version of the game stays mostly faithful to the original, and it holds up well after all these years.
  2. 70
    The controls are intuitive and simplistic with those small details, such as the marine looking around or grinning gleefully when you pick up a new weapon, present and correct. Doom is good value at 800 points and well worth the purchase.
  3. With the exception of an added online multiplayer component, there really isn’t that much of an incentive for those who have played this game at all and aren’t waxing nostalgic.
  4. Doom plays quite well in single player on the 360 thanks to tight controls, crisp (but definitely dated) graphics, and a smooth frame rate. Split screen is also flawless and it’s a blast to play with four people in the same room.

    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!!!!

    I had never played a doom game before I downloaded this on xbox live and I was really surprised by how good it was. Even though the graphicsI had never played a doom game before I downloaded this on xbox live and I was really surprised by how good it was. Even though the graphics are dated, the game play is actually a lot more fun than most modern fps games. The game is kind of short (about 30 levels), but it has lots of replay value from the different difficulty settings and multiplayer. Lets hope doom 2 will be on xbox soon! Full Review »

    I use Z Doom that allows you to run the old WAD file games on a modern PC and O/S and even in 2014 I still play using Z Doom The UltimateI use Z Doom that allows you to run the old WAD file games on a modern PC and O/S and even in 2014 I still play using Z Doom The Ultimate Doom, Doom 2: Hell on Earth, Final Doom: Plutonia Experiment & Final Doom: TNT - Evilution. I do play Doom 3 but for me Doom 1 and the other games in the series that I have mentioned in this post are the best, so I would recommend Doom 1 on the XBox 360 for anyone who likes these type of games and maybe you will see why even today I still play the Doom games via Z Doom.
