Doom II Movie 3

  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.

    It's been 14 years since Doom was first released, and I'm still playing it as obsessively as I was back in Dec '93. Fast It's been 14 years since Doom was first released, and I'm still playing it as obsessively as I was back in Dec '93. Fast action, big guns, eternal hordes of screaming monsters to mow down; It's the perfect game... Quake is released - 4 weeks later, I'm back to Doom. Half-Life is released - It takes only a few days before I put myself toe-to-hoof against a Baron Of Hell for the 1000th time. Halo is released - Doom takes instant priority, and Master Chief doesn't even get a day's look in. My addiction only grows. With an ever expanding WAD base, I'm never out of new maps to run amok in. With the source code released, enhanced source ports are everywhere, and even though the engine is updated with new features, the core gameplay remains the same - Kill stuff, Win. I don't even need to mention how unbeatable the MP modes are. The day I stop playing Doom will be the day I die. My only criticism? I'll never live long enough. Expand

    Have to admit that Doom is still a ton of fun of play, rarely there can be a game that got the gameplay right, but to be immortal like Doom -Have to admit that Doom is still a ton of fun of play, rarely there can be a game that got the gameplay right, but to be immortal like Doom - that is impressive Expand

    Doom II is a first person shooter which isn't a first person shooter, it's that plus amazing. I am 21 years late, but I just like it alright.Doom II is a first person shooter which isn't a first person shooter, it's that plus amazing. I am 21 years late, but I just like it alright. Not averagely, but I mean I like it stated. Blah blah blah, yes. This is a great game, with good story, good objectives, it's not like Call of Duty where it's just about shooting. You solve puzzles, Portal is this game except without guns and with Portals. If you ask me, it's more realistic than Grand Theft auto. You will get pushed back when attacked. Play this. Put down Call of Doodoo and Halo 3:DOOMRIPOFFodst and play this. Expand
