Doom II Review

4 June 2010
  • Summary: The shooter the helped start it all is back one more time, this time for the Xbox 360. The level design definitely shows its age, but there's no denying the simple pleasure of blowing away a zombie soldier with a shotgun. The new episode is just the icing on the cake.
  • Pros: The core shooting holds up surprising well, New episode is a nicely designed addition, The monster design is as memorable as ever
  • Cons: Deathmatch isn't much more than a novelty these days, Level design in particular isn't great., Wandering the expansive labyrinths can get a little old

Expert Review

1 June 2010
  • Summary: The long and storied lineage of brave space marines in first-person shooters can be traced back to the hero of the Doom games; thus, the genre will always owe a debt to Doom and Doom II. But so much has changed since 1994. Although the strength of some aspects of Doom II is still apparent today, its level design and gameplay are antiquated, making it more interesting now as an important part of gaming history than it is as an actual game.
  • Pros: Terrific arsenal of powerful, fun-to-use weapons, Hideous, memorable monster designs, Supports both local and online multiplayer
  • Cons: Antiquated level design relies too much on finding keys and doors, Character movement and aiming feel dated
