SummaryOne of the few good games for Jaguar
The GoodGreat graphics and the sounds are cool. I can set it to the slightly rude "I'm a wimp" difficulty setting and have a blast without worrying about completely dying on the first level. I'm not a huge fan of first person shooters but Doom is such a classic that it's hard to resist.
The BadThe controls leave something to be desired, like a 360 degree control stick, but that's the fault of the Jaguar controller, not the game itself. The eight direction control pad makes for jumpy controls and having to use the number pad to change weapons is a bit annoying, but actually it's more direct than having to cycle through weapons with a single button.
The Bottom LineAll the action is here that you'd expect in Doom. A broad range of difficulty settings allow anyone from an inexperienced novice to a experienced hardcore gamer to play this game and actually pass levels and not feel that it's too easy or too hard. Graphics and sound aren't bad. All in all, a nice port of the game.
