    Gameplay/Interface: 9/10 - First good horror fps. Best gameplay for it's time and of this style, Wolfenstein 3D was good but, Doom was still better. Story line is there but doesn't really show itself...

    If you are a first person shooter and haven't ever played Doom, there is definitely something wrong with you!

    Rated on April 05, 2008 by Str1keR-S1R

    Perfection. That is all that can be said about this game. You won't find a game as addictive or fun as Doom. There is a nice variety of enemies, weapons, fun bosses, what more could you ask for??!! Th...

    Believe it or not, but the Saturn port's biggest flaw is it's horrible framerate. And there's no excuse for it.

    With the endless number of Doom console ports out there, some are destined to be failures. And with the hardware limitations of console ports such as the SNES and 32X versions of Doom, you can expect ...

    Definitely not as good as it could of been.

    Rated on April 10, 2005 by doom3kjc

    Doom has been one of the greatest games in history, starting in 1993. It's been very popular across the years, along with other games like Quake. Doom games eventually came to more and more systems,...

    The harsh Gamespot review is to be ignored, this was the first Doom I played and its still the best by far

    Rated on July 12, 2010 by DCUltrapro

    So here we are, a great classic shooting game that basically pioneered the idea of a First Person Shooter (if you forget Bloodshot on Mega Drive) and while it isn't exactly perfect, it is soo much fun...

    good value and plenty of levels, but choppy graphics will automatically turn off the perfectionist.

    Could have been near perfect but too bad the Saturn is a 2D power house, but not that good at 3D.

    Rated on February 04, 2011 by predalienking6

    The Saturn was advertised as a 2D power house but that means that when something trying to do 3D comes/came out it wasn't done all that well on the Saturn. Graphics: the graphics are slightly more ...

    Had Doom been built from the ground up it would be worth playing. As it happens, this is not true.

    Rated on August 03, 2011 by loopy_101

    The Playstation version of Doom was a great way to set off the Playstation back in 1995, because at the time, Doom was an absolutely outstanding game in almost every way. Midway had improved the visua...
