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.
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.
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.
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.
Excerpt: "...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 I can actually say about Doom in itself that countless addicts have raved about before; the storyline remaining the same, the graphics and sound easily matching the original PC standard and the playability only limited by your need to run around shooting things. A possibly unexplored advantage ...
Pros: Doom can be played on the toilet, bus, walking the dog, anywhere
Summary: I'll be brief: 1. Doom is still a pretty good first person shooter, stands up well against more recent games. 2. In runs very well on the GBA, although the tiny screen can make long vistas difficult. (Is that an enemy I see before me?) 3. No mid-game saving, only saving at end of level. Grump. Otherwise, I'm loving it, and not just for the nostalgia value!
Summary: Whether you like it or hate it, theres no denying that Doom Advance is an amazing Shoot Em' Up for the GBA. The game is a re-make of the PC and Snes versions, except with a new multiplayer feature. The story is the same, you're a space marine who must fight his way through demons and monsters blah, blah, blah, enough said. You start the game off with only a pistol, but as you go further on, you can get great weapons such as a rocket launcher and plasma rifle.
Summary: I originally thought that Doom on the GBA was a foolish idea, just a cash in on a aging series, and it seems i was right. However unlike most cash-ins this one is surprisingly good. The game, basicly, is the original Doom, only on a smaller screen. to mt dismay I finished the whole game they day I got it, mostly because i could draw you a detailed map before-hand due to playing the original exessivly and burning the maps into my brain.
Summary: This game is brilliant it is as good as the PC version, so why the 4 stars? Well it is very dark and it is hard to see the screen, I think this is a massive flaw in the whole Gameboy Advance thing. If you are a fan of the PC classic then buy this it is well worth it, but bear in mind it is difficult to see, even with the plugin light you can buy for it.
Summary: Doom is one of those games that make a real impression on you. When I first played it, I fell in love with the game. It was fantastic; it was such a simple concept. Compulsive to the point when you have to tear yourself away from it to get some sleep, this game started a trend in PC games and videogames that has resulted in the likes of it's modern equivalents in the form of Unreal and Quake 3, etc.
