Summary

Doomed...

The Good

Doom (1994) is a very good adaption of the uber violent, first person perspective science fiction, survival horror computer game released in 1993. It is probably the first and only cartridge based adaption of the popular franchise. The graphics and music are above average and it is a fun, even scary, game to play. The game's map really helps out as does using a six button controller.

The Bad

Development of Doom 32X was rushed in an effort to release the game alongside the ill fated, if not equally rushed, Sega 32X add-on device. The game has fewer levels then the PC version, the action takes placed in a smaller viewing window and if you cannot beat the game with any of the cheat codes.

The Bottom Line

Doom (1994) is a decent adaption of the computer game that suffers from the hardware limitations of the Sega 32X and a desire to release the game alongside the ill-fated system.
