Game Review - Doom on PC

Written by Bugnotnotthegreat on June 25, 2016 @ 4:03 pm

first of let's talk about the story. The player takes the role of a marine (unnamed to further represent the person playing), "one of Earth's toughest, hardened in combat and trained for action", who has been incarcerated on Mars after assaulting a senior officer when ordered to fire upon civilians. There, he works alongside the Union Aerospace Corporation (UAC), a multi-planetary conglomerate and military contractor performing secret experiments on interdimensional travel. Recently, the teleportation has shown signs of anomalies and instability, but the research continues nonetheless.

Suddenly, something goes wrong and creatures from hell swarm out of the teleportation gates on Deimos and Phobos. A defensive response from base security fails to halt the invasion, and the bases are quickly overrun by monsters; all personnel are killed or turned into zombies

A military detachment from Mars travels to Phobos to investigate the incident. The player is tasked with securing the perimeter, as the assault team and their heavy weapons are brought inside. Radio contact soon ceases and the player realizes that he is the only survivor. Being unable to pilot the shuttle off of Phobos by himself, the only way to escape is to go inside and fight through the complexes of the moon base.
a very simple story but it works for a game where the main point is to shoot deamons with 8 (there was originally more weapons like a bfg 5200 a knife and more) and now we talk about the shooting.

Since this game was made before 99.9% of people owned a mouse so you can't shoot up or down instead the bullet will elevate autonomously depending on the position of the demon also if you want to strafe you have to hold down a key or use 2 different keys.

Now let's talk about the enemies almost all of the enemies are demons the only non-demon enemy's are the zombiefied humen. each deamon has it's own pros and cons such as the baron of hell's energy ball deals lot's of damage but are slow moving so its easy to avoid.

Also the music is amazing songs like e1m1 are so well known that a slowed down remixed version of e1m1 is used in doom 2016 and since the game has stereo sound it adds to the immersion.

The graphics are amazing for 1993 but the graphics engine wasn't updated until doom 64 and id didn't use 3d models until doom 3 was released in 2004 on pc and xbox. and finally doom has way to much cut content which can be viewed here https://goo.gl/NCxFNH so i give the game a 8/10 almost a 9 but thy flesh consumed ruined it for me.
