Newest Review: ... when it was a mere 200 Microsoft points (which is less than £2) but it normally retails at 400. The core game stays the same but it does introduce some new elements such as split screen co-op and a few online multiplayer modes Co-op and death match. As far as the main solo missions go the game is unchanged and just as good as it used to be, the graphics are a little dated but then they were ... more

Normally when I see a game getting pumped out again and again without change over the decades it does annoy me a little, yet Doom and its predecessor Wolfenstein will always be forgiven. There is no doubt that these games are what made first person shooters what they are today. Without these there would have been no Call of Duty or Goldeneye. The game was first released in 1993 and has had a number of sequels, some good and some bad, but in my opinion this is the best, the classic. I picked this up when it was a mere 200 Microsoft points (which is less than £2) but it normally retails at 400. The core game stays the same but it does introduce some new ...

It's Doom. It may not have been the first of its kind, but it's certainly the game that single handedly propelled the first person shooter into the hearts and minds of many. For the Xbox 360 release, it hasn't changed a bit, and that is absolutely a good thing. If you've played Doom before, you know what to expect. You begin with a pistol, and your job is simply to kill or be killed. As you progress you'll meet bigger and badder enemies and find bigger and badder guns, including the much lauded (and rightly so!) BFG-9000. Gameplay is frantic and spooky at times; there's nothing worse than scouring a level for the exit, thinking you've killed every last enemy, ... Read the complete review

It misses on 5 stars... just. I love this game and I mean LOVE IT. Memories come flooding back of when me and my cousin used to play this along with 'Duke Nukem,' 'Blood' and 'Carmageddon' - all classics. But what we're doing here is not reviewing DOOM in its year of birth but for the Xbox 360 and does it translate to gamers now? Only those feeling sentimental about DOOM are shouting yes and to be honest I'd probably be one of you. For the current generation of gamers though this just doesn't appeal - again I am open to comments - please don't feel the need to punish me for my opinion! If you're coming to DOOM as a new player, with a history of ... Read the complete review

When Doom first became available on Xbox Live Arcade, I immediately downloaded it, a knee jerk purchase motivated by a warm and overwhelming sense of nostalgia for all the many, many evenings I spent blasting imps and chainsawing cacodemons as a schoolboy in the mid 90s. And then...I left it idling on my hard drive, whilst I busied myself with the array of sophisticated, deep and involving games in the Xbox 360 catalogue. I remember firing it up once out of curiosity, chuckling at the old blocky menu and that familiar MIDI music, before I moved on. Yet recently, after completing a lengthy and involved RPG, I felt like I needed something that provided a quick ... Read the complete review

Doom is a first person shooter game first released for the PC in 1993. The game was one of the first of its genre, pipped only to the post by Wolfenstien 3D in 1992. However Doom has been widely accepted by critics as the beginning of it all (sprouting many "Doom-clones" such as Duke Nukem after it's hugely successful aftermath). There are 4 different episodes featured in the Xbox Live Arcade version of the game, three of which were featured on the original version and the fourth episode "Thy Flesh Consumed" several years after the games initial release. The gameplay of the game is widely recognizable, even to a player relatively new to ... Read the complete review
