Summary

Doom2!! That was cool!!

The Good

When I first saw Doom, I couldn't believe it. Great graphics, great sound. It was amazing!! I played it and I loved it. Then it came the obvious sequel. And, far beyond my expectations, it was even better than the original one. Now you don't have three episodes, you must take a long journey to save the Earth from the alien guys that you fought in the martian moons. And, this time, they are coming with a couple of new friend, like the Mancubus, or the Arch Ville. The game was great for its time, with very advanced graphics, an improved gameplay from the original Doom, and in some places, very huge levels. And the sound!! I still remember the giants footsteps of the Cyberdemon, the shots from the spiders, the bullets from a nearby room every time I managed to start a fight between the enemies. Doom 2 was one of the best games in history, absolutely.

The Bad

Not too much to say. The only bad thing it was that there was only one new weapon.

The Bottom Line

Totally surprising!!
