Summary

Doom fans rejoice!

The Good

Classic doom game, with a couple new features such as shooting darts and artifacts than make the final level easier. Secret levels, an awesome looking chainsaw, and even an enemy unique to this game, show that the doom spirit is alive and well.

The Bad

Due to the odd shape of the N64 controller, I had a LOT of trouble learning how to properly do stuff such as strafe.

The Bottom Line

A great run-through-and-shoot-everything-that-moves game. If you're new to DOOM, I would suggest trying a different DOOM games first. However, if you're familiar with the DOOM games and wish for one that will give you a challenge even after playing many others, put in the cartridge and press "power", you'll turn it off 5 hours later and wonder where the time went.
