Doom. Everyone remembers their first time playing it. Me? It was late at night, I was home alone. The house was dark. I was holding my breath with every corridor I passed, panicking at the sound of piggish grunts that I couldn't find the source to. Straining my eyes at an attempt to see a little further beyond the limited, dark field of view. My palms sweated as I steered the lone Marine toward certain death when I faced off against my first Cyber Demon. My heart raced as I was unforgivably massacred. Doom. It's a landmark game that needs absolutely no introduction, praise be to id Software for its revolutionary release; both with at-the-time technology, and a never before seen idea.

You are the last Marine. You were stationed at the Union Aerospace Corporation (UAC) on Mars, which recently began testing portals between the planet and its two moons, Phobos and Deimos. It soon grew clear that the teleport systems were growing ever unstable, and the volunteers sent in either came back half-zombified, or didn't come back at all. An all alert message goes out, seems some demons started pouring out of the portals. You were ordered to secure the perimeter of the base while the rest of the team went inside. Several hours later and your radio, which was broadcasting gun fire, screams, and cracking bones, has gone silent. You are the last Marine. Alone. On Mars. With teeth-gnashing demons.

It's a scary set-up story wise, but what's offered in the game manual pales in comparison to the rich novels that spawned afterwards; immensely prescribed reading material if you can find them, by the way. Often when I find Doom losing its horror touch I think back to the books, and not long after I find that familiar chill creeping up my spine. In-game, the dim lighting, limited view distance, and deluge of demonic entities with their creepy sounds are enough to frighten anyone at least a handful of times the first time one plays Doom; in this modern age, anyway. Back in the day, this game was one of the most frightening. Over the years, much of the horror factor has been lost, and a lot of that is due to the fact that Doom really does need a face lift.

It's cool that we got Doom 2016 and all, but the original title could use a texture makeover. Much like being in a relationship for a long time, sometimes you need to add some oomph to spice things up. If Doom did its hair and put on some makeup, it'd be greatly welcomed, because quite frankly its age is showing visually. The monsters seem overly pixelated no matter if they're far away or close up; weirdly enough a medium distance seems to smooth them out a little better. The landscapes have held up much better than the demon sprites, but they too could use a trim and shave. Do not be fooled by the screenshots on the store page, I'm not sure what they're from... but definitely not the unaltered, unmodded Doom that you get right out of the download box.

Even though the last 20 years have not been kind to Doom visually, the soundtrack is still just as badass as ever. You could not forget these tunes if you tried. Each level features a different track, all being outstanding rock-inspired midi songs. Throughout its many reincarnations over the years, depending on which version of Doom you've played, you've heard a different soundtrack; Sega Genesis being the absolute worst. Ultimate Doom features the original soundtrack, the way it was meant to be heard. However, if you've grown tired of the same old songs (how could you?) and want to beef up the horror vibe, the PlayStation Doom OST is gravely recommended.

Ultimate Doom gives us the original three chapters, each with multiple (5-7) levels a piece, and also the fourth chapter which was an expansion pack upon initial release, Thy Flesh Consumed. While the game starts out simple enough, it morphs into a series of labyrinthine style maps that take concentration and memory skills to navigate; although there is an in-game map, it can be a little complicated to use at times. Conclusively, you must find the required colored keycards (red, blue, yellow) and open the color coded doors. While that sounds simple, often there are switches that you must find and activate in order to reach the exit of a level. Some switches merely open up hidden chambers of demons, sent to rip you to shreds on your mission. There are also health, ammo, and armor pick-ups, as well as special items such as berserk rampage, invulnerability, and semi-invisibility; all which last for a temporary period of time.

Ultimate Doom is the iconic godfather of the shooter genre. Over 20 years have passed since its initial release, and it still commands high respect, which it truly deserves. It's a title that's easy for beginners to pick up and beat, but hard for veterans to master on the highest difficulty setting. The game has been duplicated a hundred times over, but never fully replicated in all of its gory violence and superb atmosphere. There are ways to apply mods to this version of Doom, you can check the community hub for guides, but it's quite a pain since the game natively runs on DOSBox. If you've never played Doom, stop robbing yourself of one of the greatest FPS experiences of all time. If you're a fan, there's no reason not to pick it up in this format.

Rating: 5.0/5.0 - An astonishing achievement, this game must be played.

Best anger management therapy that you will find.

10/10 Will play forever.

All right, since some people found this review helpful I'll try to make a decent review:

Doom is, as you may already know, a very fast-paced FPS with not much story to tell, but with a lot of other things that can, and will appeal people looking for simple but by no means easy gameplay. I recomend this game to any person who likes FPS games. I'll try to cover some points of interest:

Graphics: Of course, being this game 22 years old (as of this review) the graphics are really dated for a PC game; having a resolution of 320x200 (IIRC), and 256 colors, you can clearly see 'big' pixels. Even then, the game keeps a good atmosphere for the most part. So if you're picky about graphics, maybe the atmosphere created by the game will keep you sane while playing.

Sound: The same as the last point; it's old. Even then, the sounds fit, so enemies growls and scratches evoke a sense of danger around the corner. And the music... oh man, the music fits so well in the game. Fast action along with metal (for the most part) music is a good combination!

Gameplay: Now this is the core of this game. This is the reason why I keep coming back to it. Just like the basics of any FPS game, you get a set of weapons, a bunch of enemies and then you empty your shells, cells, batteries, etc. upon them. Doom is just this. There's only you and demons. You have 8 (9 in Doom II) weapons to kill them, and the action is faster than most FPS out there. Walk, strafe, fire, dodge. Of course it's not only a corridor or halls full of enemies you have to dispatch, there are puzzles, with keys (or skulls) and switches or trap floors. It's not only just killing, mind you!

Story: The only story you get is the one that came in the manual, but you can find it easily online. But in short; you're a (unnamed) marine, working at the Union Aerospace Corporation in mars, when portals bring out demons from hell and the rest of the people get slaughtered, so it's up to you to stop the demon invasion. How the story is coming along is told in short 'intermision' screens at the end of every chapter.

Replay Value: Yes. Just yes. Why else would I keep on coming back to doom if this game didn't have any sort of replay value? And if the game bores you, you have the mods. You won't have enough time in your life to play all the community content that has been created for this game. So look for them! There are a lot of websites with links to these mods!

Controls: Now, the native controls of Doom will probably feel uncomfortable for most people nowadays. You can only walk, turn, strafe, use and shoot (and of course run). Strafe is kind of tricky the first time, and you can even move with the mouse (not turn). You can only look to the sides, and shooting an enemy above you is done by autoaim.

Try this game with another sourceport that is not Dosbox if you want full support for mods and/or want to change many more options for graphics, sound, and controls (most sourceports makes doom controls more akin to today FPS). There are many different ones for each taste, too.

TLDR: Game is astounding, simple gameplay, enough challenge, and you have countless of mods to keep on playing forever, like I do.

+ Runs smooth as lubed-up butter
+It's DOOM
+Promotes old-school exploration without a tutorial holding your hand
+ It's DOOM
+ FPS in it's most basic form: "Here's a gun, here's a level full of demons and more guns, have fun!"
+ You can punch demons so hard they explode
+It's freakin' DOOM

> Everytime you move your mouse forward or backwards, you move in the respective direction. (This pretty much lets you play the whole game using just your mouse)
> Comes with an alternate launch option that disables newer control scheme, letting you use the original controls instead

- Doomguy's got the turning circle of a bus
- Steam Overlay doesn't work while playing, meaning you have to quit the whole game to talk to friends (Alt-tabbing doesn't work, as it crashes the game)

Final Verdict
All in all, I'd recommend it, the cons are easy to counteract, and the pros more than make up for them.

Would punch demons so hard they explode again

Summary - You are a space marine and you kill demons; that is all you need to know.

Overall - Doom is an amazing game that is still very fun to play, despite being 20+ years old.

Score - By retro standards, DOOM is a full 10/10.

I don't really suggest buying this version of the game, but I'm still leaving a thumbs up because it's DOOM and it's cheap, but it's hard to say which version to suggest because they mostly all have something annoying about them.

For new players I suggest buying the Doom 3 BFG Edition which includes Ultimate Doom and Doom II running in something of a wrapped, enhanced port with higher resolution, better speed and controls, and sadly some gutted features as well. It is much easier to get running properly.

This version runs in DOSBox and while there's nothing wrong with that, the config file is missing from the Steam version of this release, and they've never fixed this, and they really should, so I can change my options. The GOG version doesn't have this problem. It's hard not to recommend a version of DOOM, but I would say buy this on GOG instead of steam if you want to emulate DOS properly, or buy BFG if you want to get into the game quickly and just play. It's worth noting that the BFG versions have Achievements, while that's more or less not even possible on the DOSBox versions. This version would be a better value if it came wrapped in its own port as well, with the option to run it in emulated DOS if so desired.

Whichever version you do get is no big deal because the real fun starts once you're running DOOM in the source port of your choice such as GZDoom if you like pretty lights, or Chocolate Doom if you wanna stay purist. All you need is the WAD file from any version of the game.

If you really want this version of the game to be completionist or whatever then you're probably shopping for a boxed copy of Ultimate Doom anyway, but if you're not, go ahead and pick this up if you really need to run it in emulated DOS. I don't know if you can even install this on a real DOS system.

I first played DOOM in the mid 90s and it's still, for my money, the greatest shooter ever made. Let's get the obvious out of the way: no, you can't look up or down. Also, yes, the graphics are kind of dated. But the sheer sense of speed, relentless action, claustrophobia and sheer creepiness is still just as powerful as it ever was. The momentum is incredible, you never stop moving and killing and the action just keeps getting more and more intense, with a challenging but perfectly drip-fed difficulty curve.

There's not much story to speak of (there are demons. Kill them.) but the game packs in interactive and visual narrative cues through it's PERFECT level design. Seriously, the level design of this game has yet to be bettered. You barrel through these tightly-wound mazes like vengence made flesh, hunting for hidden resources to keep up the relentless murder. As the game progresses, the corridors of the military base become more warped and demonic, rooms taking the shape of Satanic stars and the like. It's not got narrative depth, but the way the levels become more claustrophobic and twisted really sells the hellish atmosphere.

Really, there's not really much to say that hasn't been said already. DOOM is the grand-daddy of FPS. Not the first, but easily the best. A pure rush of heavy metal, demons and violence. Pick this up, install the Brutal DOOM mod, crank up the blood FX and RIP AND TEAR.

Great game. It's a great port, but It can glitch up your computer after a little while.

The GBA Version of Doom is great as well.
