Doom II Review

I'm showing my age by saying it, but I distinctly remember when Doom II came out in 1994. I had a few classmates in homeroom who managed to install it on one of the computer lab PCs, and we used to blast through demons while one person kept an eye out to make sure no one caught us. But I digress. Id has seen fit to rework Doom II, much like it did back in 2006 with Doom Arcade. And as Kat Bailey reports, it's still a great game -- especially with the nine new levels -- but the 15 year-old level design is showing its age.

"As I’ve already said, the shooting holds up just fine; even the inability to jump or look up and down has a certain amount of charm. But beyond mowing down hordes of demons, it’s apparent that the level design just isn’t that great, particularly compared to the original. In that regard, the original might actually be a better investment at 400 Microsoft Points. Doom II has the benefit of largely lag-free multiplayer and a new episode though, so the choice is yours." 

Feel free to share your Doom II memories below, but first, be sure to read her review!
