Game Review

Doom is the legendary first-person shooter created by Id Software and released for DOS in 1993.

It was Id Software’s follow-up to their genre-defining Wolfenstein 3D. This was the first game to popularize multiplayer for this genre.

The Union Aerospace Corporation has been experimenting with teleportation on the moons of mars, when something goes wrong. Play from the perspective of a space marine sent to clean up the corporation’s mess. You watch as your friends are quickly slaughtered and you wonder how they made it out of boot camp. That aside, you soon find that the UAC has managed to open up a portal to hell and you’re about to need a lot of bullets. Don’t worry, as there is a large arsenal to choose from. With more advanced engine technology than Wolfenstein 3D, Doom’s levels are more varied and complex. The engine can simulate different heights and lighting conditions (hope you’re not afraid of the dark). With a myriad of booby traps set in indoor and outdoor environments, you better watch your step. Press switches and find key cards to advance through the episodes, all while fighting off the spawn of hell. Good luck.

Doom was voted one of the Ten Most Influential PC Games and stands as the milestone for the change from 2D graphics to 3D. Since its release, the licensing for 3D engines has become an important business branch of the PC industry. Winning more than 17 gaming awards, it has truly earned its spot on the Best Games of All Time list (7 times, in fact). It is also featured in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die. I still personally own and play this one to this day. Trust me when I say you will love this game.

    Doom is another fun game that will never die..... The full version of this game is awesome and i spent so many hours playing through it..... all 4 episodes of the game were enough to make me want to keep playing it..... New doom was okay but this doom is though a whole lot better and does not get boring at all.... the music also conveys and displays a creepy feeling as well in it...... if you love this game..... then you will dig Doom 2 as well..... Best game i ever played through as a demo version? Then got the full version of it from the web..... this game will keep you on your toes in the dark as it does not mess around..... take care and god bless....)
