DoomYou know it, you love it
Developer: GT Interactive
Genre: First-Person Shooter
You know it, you love it. Itís everybodyís favorite first-person shooter, and the godfather of way too many bad games (although thatís not really the titleís fault). Itís Doom, and itís the best conversion yet. The high frame rate, impressive light-sourcing effects, and responsive controls make this second to none.
The game supports the underused PlayStation Link Cable, so two players with two copies of the game, two systems, and two PlayStations can go head-to-head, just like all those PC gamers. The disc includes not only a complete port of Doom II, but a new version of the original Doom, Ultimate Doom. Chain Gunners, Revenants, and other enemies from the sequel have been thrown in spice up to the game, which feels more like one long game than two distinctly separate ones.
While there are a few problems with control, most noticeably in turning corners, the game looks great. Letís face it, though, Doom is starting to get a little old. But if you want a faithful conversion of it, this is the one.
