Summary

A rare moment in the gaming history when a sequel could even be called better than the original

The Good

Everything which was good about Doom 1, was the same good and some stuff even better in Doom 2. Enough said about Doom 1's decent graphics and lovely sound effects, lets talk what was even better in Doom 2! The new monsters where very kick-ass, the new weapon, though the only in the game, became the favourite of fans instantly, also must be noted the improvement in level design, which was even less linear than in Doom 1, and larger environment's. Also the soundtrack kept being kick-ass just like in the original.

The Bad

What can be bad about Doom 2? Only the fact that you may get tired after playing through it a couple of hours, but whats so special in that? :)

The Bottom Line

If u find this game in any place available, no matter where, the internet, or a shop, this is a must play game forever, and if you haven't played Doom 1, its not worse to start with this game, like i did in my time. :)
