It is a code, it worked.

  • Summary: This is DOOM on your Xbox360. Everything works great and it actually feels good to play it this way. Of course this is a 15 year old FPS, so you should not expect awesomness compared to the newer games, however it is everything you remember from your previous plays. I found the multiplayer to be a little sparse as there are few players still playing it, and I found the multiplayer to not be fun for this reason. However someone else may like it.

Fantastic game... lackluster port

  • Summary: I'm not going to bore you with a summary of the game, suffice to say that as the first real premier FPS, this baby sports a very simplified control scheme with no ability to jump or even peer mindlessly at the ceilings or floors or at the fireball-spouting imp standing above you. And if you're still okay with that concept, then do read-on.

Doom Reader Review - 8.5

  • Conclusion: Can a game suck if it has bad graphics? Yes, but in this case no. The game is Doom. The graphics may not be up to date for todays games, but this was how the game was made. Doom is an old game from a long time ago. I don't remember the original one that much because I was poor and never had a good enough computer to play it. In all the lvls you will be fighting monster, collecting power ups, and finding keys to open different doors. All of this is in 1st person.

Doom: A Classic XBLA Release

  • Excerpt: "Doom is ID's legendary first person shooter, based on a simple premise. You're a lone space marine on a military base on one of the moons of Mars. Everything else wants you dead. Go kill them. And it's this simple premise that gives rise to Doom's greatest asset: It's gameplay. Doom was never a complex shooter and its gameplay never goes beyond the 'find key and kill everything' mindset. This means that Doom is a great game to just pick up and play ...
  • Pros: Its Doom, playable as a port using the 360 controls
  • Cons: Abit expensive, Basic port of Doom, no custom controls

Basic but well implemented classic

  • Excerpt: "Doom was the first person shooter that defined the genre, and blew people away in 1993. Playing as a non-descript marine, you shoot your way through legions of demons, utilising shotguns, plasma rifles, and the infamous B.F.G 9000. There was a story behind all the shooting, but I don't think anybody remembers or cares about it, some tripe about hell and moon bases or something. People bought and played the game for the explosions, the gore, and the ...
  • Pros: Online play, responsive controls
