  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.

    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. Game Informer
    75
    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.

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! Expand

    Played this game recently. Miss all that nostalgia of my childhood days. Somehow I was much happier with everything.

    Actuallly I had played the PC version of this game. Needless to say this game is the most fun with the NoClipping cheat. Also, I used the "Doomsday" engine for playing this which allows you to use the mouse for "free look". During those old days I used to prefer the "only keyboard" controls.

    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! Expand
