Doom advance? It's doom portable!

Tom, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: This rendition of the classic and original doom is just brilliant. aside from the mono sound, with no sense of sound depth awareness and green blood. It is just plain awesome. Thats the only reason why I gave it 4 not 5 out of 5 because aside from that it is just plain awesome. It mimmicks the original doom in every other way, and you get used to the minor limitations quite quickly anyway.

Back to the Hell that spawned you...

  • Summary: DooM is reason enough to buy a GBA. It is a phenomenal game, one that (in the opinion of a console gun-bunny) demands the D-pad. I know plenty of old-schoolers will say the Mouse is better, but I know what I like. This game has it all... well, almost. It's not so much the original DooM as a modified Playstation version.

the classic 1st person shooter...on the go!!!

  • Summary: i don't like portable consoles...especialy the game boy (advance, sp, micro ect) they were boring...untill they finaly released some decent, 3-d game, which is actuallty 3-d which is rare in any game boy console, and they chose the right game to rerelease. Doom has returned...after years of being one of the best first person shooters in the world...it is brought to a portable console.

A classic, but not all that playable

  • Summary: Doom is a classic. No doubt about it. Still playable nowadays. Superb level design, tight action, all the right things you want in an all-out action FPS. But it needs a bigger screen. I can't play it on my SP since I can't see what's going on. A good try, but I'll stick with FFA Tactics and Mario Kart.

  • Excerpt: Doom was my first FPS and it was the best, I was 12, me, a girl...He made me loving the blood....And since then, I'm always fighting bad guys.... Don't try to find a real story: you're just a soldier and in front of you, human and aliens. Guess what? You must kill them. That's the only thing you can do: kill and kill and kill. No reflexion, just firing to survive. It's only instinct.
  • Pros: old  DOOM on GBA
  • Cons: Graphics, few weapons

  • Excerpt: Doom, the game that blew open a new genre in the gaming world. The hero (being a 1st person shooter) – you, have to try and escape from this Hell on mars. That means fighting your way through hoards of beasties. But while these enemies chuck fireballs and bullets your ways the HUGE arsenal of weapons you fall over as you blunder through maze upon maze of Boiling Acid, Lava and Traps.
  • Pros: Playstation classic and Genre Legend PORTABLE !
  • Cons: Low resolution and lack of buttons

doomed

  • Summary: Its wonderfull really how something i played on when our family first got a PC is now on a little black cartridge. This game is great purley becuase it is Doom on a handheld. All the weapons and enemys are there along with 21 levels of 3D shooter action. I think this should be in any ones collection who owns a GBA. The only down point is that Doom is a classic game and was released in 93/94 so to some it may seem a bit too old.

Doom in the palm of your hand.

Vectrex, Ciao

  • Excerpt: Back in 1993 Doom was a revolution & is still one of my favourite games to date. Firstly what it is all about : Your a marine stranded in a moonbase surrounded by hell spawn, the only way out is blasting your way to freedom. Featuring a semi-3D engine Doom is one of the most advanced games to run on the GBA with dynamic lighting, excellent sound quality & loads of levels. Its great running around blasting bad guys with a pump action shotgun where every you are.
  • Pros: Solid conversion, great sound, many levels .
  • Cons: Green blood? No ultraviolence mode !  No big baddies .

Totally Doom tastic

  • Excerpt: If you are reading this review wondering what this game is about, then "Welcome", as you have either accidentally clicked on a link that has inadvertently brought you here or you are very new to the gaming experience. I say this because no matter what console you have owned (from about the Super Nintendo upwards) there has been a version of Doom (if not Doom II) released to wet the appetites of the hordes of fans that must complete it again and again… There is not a lot...
  • Pros: Doom can be played on the toilet, bus, walking the dog, anywhere
  • Cons: Gameboy screen lighting .

DOOMS DAY

Rickoss, Ciao
10 January 2003
  • Excerpt: Doom is, well, a very old game. There's no doubting that, but has it still got all the action, adventure and machine gun blasting moments as it did all those years ago? In short the answer is yes! It may be old, but it's just as competitive an FPS as it's close rival, Ecks vs Sever. One thing you do need to know before I start is it's no different to all the other Doom games, so if you don't like the other Doom games, or you've completed them so much, don't get it!
  • Pros: Scene - Setting Action
  • Cons: No Change From The PC Version
