5.0 out of 5 stars Still Doom, Just Slightly Different 14 Aug 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've always loved Doom. It was my first FPS, and it blew me away. Constant, fast-paced action. Who cares it has a wafer thin plot? It's got brilliant, thrilling level design and monsters who come at you from every nook and cranny. It's got surprises but doesn't need a deep plot for this. It just needs for you to pick up a blue key and the walls to suddenly raise, an array of wonderfully, creepily snarling demons to attack and adrenaline and sometimes fear to overtake you. The thumping, ever-changing, mood-setting soundtrack adds to the game. You may be in a dark tunnel with heartbeat like music pushing you along, or in a full-on bloodbath with roaring rock music.

Then arrives Doom on Playstation. Same gameplay. Slightly different level design. However it technically equals the game in that department, although I'm still fonder of the original. It's only pitfall is the music. It's slightly techno and can be good when it gets going but can be too quiet to provide atmosphere. Sound is quite creepy, however, and equals that of the original PC edition. It also beats it in value - 2 games in one! Ha!

Overall, Doom is a masterpiece, whichever platform you play it on (Doom 64, totally different game though, that story may be told another day....)

5.0 out of 5 stars The genesis of modern first person shooters 29 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase
Doom is a pivotal moment in gaming history. Wolfenstein showed promise but Doom on the PC nailed the format and it's legacy endures to this day. Anyone who enjoys first-person shooters owes a debt of gratitude to the makers of Doom. This is where it all started.

This PS1 adaptation is not much different from the original PC version. By today's standards, the graphics may lack smoothness but the gameplay still holds-up. If anything the ugliness and simplicity of Doom make it more enjoyable. Movement is simple - Forward, Backwards, Left, Right, Shoot - There is no intricate ballet when hopping from platform to platform. Just run in a straight line. The rocket launcher still feels heavy on impact with it's weighty thuds and chunky explosions. There is no messing about with plot development. Just kill anything that moves and find the exit. The baddies are in plentiful supply and it's fun dispatching them. It is still satisfying to hear the familiar splattering noise when they implode. A good remedy for a bad day at the office.

Doom is from a time when developers had to be inventive with limitations in graphics and sound. In this respect Doom is a real triumph and retains it's place as a revered classic. Great stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fine quality game 27 May 2014
Verified Purchase
There are people in the World that do not take care off their games. The owner that was before me is not that kind of person.
It fellt like Doom-Platinum had never been played before. A fun (PS) game to play over again.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
While there are many great games to play both past and present, only a handful of them have ever possessed the ability to change the landscape of the video games world. Super Mario Bros. helped rebuild the industry after the 1983 video game crash with its simple but amazing platform gameplay; Street Fighter 2 made beat-'em-ups hip and cool like a typical clothing fashion craze; while Gran Turismo set the racing game bar really high with its realistic handling and large selection of cars, making it really difficult for other racers to clear that bar. Another thing you can add to that small list is Doom...no, I'm not saying we're all doomed! I'm talking about the shooter!

Back in 1993 id Software developed and published Doom for the PC, and it became the biggest thing to happen to the video games world since CITV's Bad Influence. There were two main reasons for its success. 1) It was a first person shooter...and it was in 3D. There is some debate as to whether or not this was the first ever 3D FPS, but it's a general consensus among gamers that it was the first one to achieve high critical and commercial success. 2) It contained a lot of horror, violence and gore which did upset bible-reading, church-going pretty boys. But regardless of its morale rights and wrongs Doom certainly gave PC owners something different to do. Something a lot different to creating pink coloured cats on their cheap paint programmes.

So fast forward to 1995. Williams Entertainment were given the all clear to publish a PSone version of Doom. This version of Doom actually contains two different games: Ultimate Doom which was the first game with a few bells and whistles attached to it; and Doom 2 which was originally released on the PC in 1994.
