The N64's first taste of DOOM

sghosh, Ciao
15 July 2006
  • Excerpt: "...back of the success of DOOM and DOOM II, id software brought DOOM to N64 gamers in the form of DOOM 64. It did however have to contend with the likes of Goldeneye, Turok, Quake, and Duke Nukem 64. And it never would, for differing reasons. DOOM 64 plays and looks very much like the PC versions, a pseudo 3D FPS with animated sprites as enemies. The graphics were good in its own right, with some nice textures, and the game generally had a very ...
  • Pros: Its Doom
  • Cons: No multiplayer, Still using 2D sprites

Classic Doom-, Or Doom on drugs-

Kevin_Pri..., Ciao
13 June 2001
  • Excerpt: "...the classic FPS, Doom, and Doom 64 brings back some of those memories but can not compete with its PC counterpart. Graphics - When you first turn on this game and begin to play you will notice this game is extremely dark! This is where alot of people turn it off and call it crap but you can simply ajust brightness so don't let that discourage you. The enemies are unrecognizable compared to there PC counterparts. Some have simply had a slight make ...
  • Pros: Improved graphics, smooth gameplay
  • Cons: Not on par with PC Doom games, horrible background music

Doomed Doom

andrewpat..., Ciao
19 March 2001
  • Excerpt: "...time that I plyed on Doom was on a PC on Doom 1. I was amazed. This was one of the most exciting and frantic games which I had ever set my eyes upon. The graphics, the gameplay, the violence. This was just what every kid needed to unleash their anger and stress upon. Blowing monsters and zombies heads off, making them cry out and then blasting them into a messy corpse on the floor. I awaited the release of all the other Dooms and played on these ...
  • Pros: Keeps you entertained for 5 minutes

Doom is Dead

cacou, Ciao
31 August 2000
  • Excerpt: "Doom 64 is inspired from the game serie Doom and Doom II that was created for the computer in the past. They now have brought a classic back but there is only one problem. It sucks. The grapichs are good but I had to put the brightness of my TV to the maximum to see something in the darkness of the game. The control was the same has the computer but even better since you have the controller from the nintendo 64. The monster are well presented but ...

A Doom conversion?

BonzoBana..., Ciao
21 August 2000
  • Excerpt: "...one or two exceptions. N64 Doom isn't really a conversion as I see it. The graphics are different, the levels are different even the mood of the game is different. Its lost almost all its playability. I held back getting it when it was full price and waited. I ended up paying £9.99 and for the amount of times I've played it that is too much. Although as a screen grab it looks nice, animation is quite frankly rubbish. It makes no real use of the console ...
  • Pros: Looks nice as a screen grab
  • Cons: uninspired dull conversion

Not the best Doom!

mattpeak, Ciao
26 July 2000
  • Excerpt: "...just isn't as good as Doom on the other platforms. All the levels are new, and the characters are good, however the weapons are still the same. However the big question about this game has to be, 'where is the multiplayer option??????'. Doom is known to have started the online gaming fasination, yet they don't put multiplayer on the N64, which is arguably the best multiplayer format around???? Come on Id Software! Wake up!!! ...

Just too easy

philsammi..., Ciao
19 July 2000
  • Excerpt: "...who is used to playing Doom on another platform will be disappointed by the N64 version. On the plus side, the levels are completely new and exclusive to the N64, and the graphics are smooth and attractive. But the problem is that all the challenge has been taken out of the game. All the monsters move a great deal slower than on other consoles, and it is no problem at all to just dodge the imp's fireballs and fire at your leisure. I was brought up ...

  • Excerpt: "...great to have a new DooM game to play and all, but there's no ending. That's right! No bloody sodding ending! I played thru because hey, it's Doom, it's a great shooter, with fun to use weapons and hordes of enemies to blow away. But no freaking ending. All the enemeis are back as 2d sprites. That's right they arent 3d, they're still 2d, but the sprites have been redone and look fabulous. The weapons also got a facelift and are better than ever, ...
  • Pros: It's great fun to blow away DooM baddies just like the old days
  • Cons: NO FREAKING ENDING
