  1. Another amazing quality of this beyond awesome game, is that the guns basically aim for themselves, so you just point and shoot.

    Go ahead and buy Doom II - if you think you can take the heat. [Dec 1994, p.134]
  3. A dark, disturbing game. And while it may not bring anything new to the genre, it can create obsession-level loyalty if you tend not to look beyond the barrel of a gun.
  4. In addition to multiple difficulty settings and configurable graphics and controls, DOOM II features online support. You can challenge opponents via modem, LAN or a supported IPX protocol to a brutal, no holds barred deathmatch competition.
  5. If you don't have DOOM II and you've got a Win95 P90Mhz or above, this is the best version to buy! For beginners, it makes loading those .WAD files as simple as pointing and clicking, and setting up a multiplayer game is just as easy.

    The new enemies are all great and the level design is better then the original. Doom II also had the Super Shotgun which kicks ass.

    Doom 2 is my personal favorite game in the Doom series. It took the original game and made it even faster, grittier, and more badass. You getDoom 2 is my personal favorite game in the Doom series. It took the original game and made it even faster, grittier, and more badass. You get the awesome super shotgun, a slew of new enemies to use it against, an awesome soundtrack, and a lot of great and awesome new levels. Some of the levels are a bit goofy, especially some of the city levels, but you get more good maps than bad ones. When this game came out I was so amazed by the size and detail of the levels and how many enemies you could rip through in a massive fight. The community is still going strong to this day with tons of custom WADs, source ports, and some people are even still playing online multiplayer. It's still the best single player FPS ever released in my opinion. Expand

    Cant believe how incredible this game is.
    Doom II + GZdoom + brutal doom + doom metalvol4 = the most fun fps around at the moment.

    maybe that will change with Destiny or the new serious sam game.

    Until then, try the combo and prepare to blow your mind!

    Doom 2 is in my opinion the most perfect Doom game of the 90s. Gameplay is addictive, sound efffects are great, It replaced the episodicDoom 2 is in my opinion the most perfect Doom game of the 90s. Gameplay is addictive, sound efffects are great, It replaced the episodic style of missions into a single row of missions and the final Boss was much better compared to the first one. My only problem is that it doesnt have a good story to combine everything together (i understand its a 90s FPS gaame but a good story is important to me). Expand

    Well it could be good and I really tried to like but I couldn't. That double barrel shotgun is nice though.
