Summary

Stupid, boring game without any value

The Good

I'll just leave it blank...

The Bad

They didn't create the FPS genre: Wolfenstein 3D was older. It's full of blood and killing, and nothing more; it just has a bad influence on you. This game teaches children to be violent and doesn't teach anything else.

Okay, graphics were good for the time, but that time there were hardly any FPS games, so it wasn't difficult to top them. "Doom" and its sequels are very similar to other FPSs, they don't have any innovation, so why did they become famous? Only because they had pretty good graphics. They were graphical showcases, not real games.

The gameplay in "Doom" was so boring! Just run and hit, run and hit again. Nothing new. All you do is just kill your enemies. No change at all compared to old arcade games! Almost everyone who plays "Doom" don't pay any attention to its story - that's because there is no story. All you should care about is killing the enemy more efficiently.

There is no spirit in this game, no soul. Nothing deep, if you scratch the surface, you find more surface.

The Bottom Line

If you want just to kill, kill, and kill, then you can play it... if you care for anything else, just forget it.
