Summary

An 'expansion pack' that does the original justice.

The Good

Quite frankly, everything. The quality is superb, the gameplay, divine. Final Doom is actually two games, TNT Evilution and The Plutonia Experiment. TNT was designed by a group of dedicated Doom fans, known as TeamTNT. The Plutonia Experiment was designed by the very talented Dario and Milo Casali, also (at the time) avid Doom mappers. And judging by the professionalism that went into making these, you could swear these maps were made in-house. John Romeo and co. would've been left red-faced when they saw these two beauties.

The Bad

To be honest, nothing, except for maybe a bug involving the yellow key card on MAP31, but hey, that's nothing that IDCLIP or IDKFA can't fix. Enough said.

The Bottom Line

Frankly, it's better than both the original Doom and Doom 2, in my opinion. Especially in terms of graphics and music. Heck, even Doom 3 doesn't quite stack up in some ways! And given the fact that this was made by Doom fans, and not id Software themselves, this should rightfully make this little gem a true classic. So, if you love Doom, and you haven't bought this yet, go and get it. That's an order.
