I wrote a review for The Ultimate DOOM (and DOOM II) on Steam

Recommended Posts

Hi, fellow Level 41 gamer ;P Nice and thorough review of the game.

 

Well, talking about mapping, I guess there's no reference back in the day, and people can't or shouldn't be opinionated because they have nothing/little else to compare. Sandy's mapping style has been an interesting topic for a long time. His maps either make people extremely like or hate, in my opinion. For example, I hate the crap out of E2M6, but there are players saying they absolutely love E2M6. Anyway, I really like "Doom will never die, only the players." Great punchline.

 

Now I should go and read your other reviews.

Well-written piece, which brought me plenty of nostalgia for the original game. Kudos.

 

"...  the game would've featured a much more detailed storyline, multiple player characters, a hub level system that predated Hexen, and a number of interactive features..."

 

Alas, what might have been.

Thanks ReX! Also I just finished the DOOM II review. Mind the personally expanded story section as I felt the need to pad the review out a little so it wouldn't be too short.

I read through your DooM II review, and enjoyed it almost as much as your DooM review. While you clearly put a lot of effort and imagination into the back-story of DooM II, I felt that you might have been belaboring it. Still, a good read.

Heh yeah, I enjoy writing so that doesn't surprise me. Thanks for the feedback!

A Final DOOM review will be available in the future also.

You seem to have typoed "3." at the end of your Doom 2 review.

I'm not seeing a "3". I am, however, seeing the 3.5/5 rating. Unless you were making a joke, in which case I'll shut up now.

My rating system:

5 - perfect game (recommended).
4.5 - near perfect game (recommended).
3.5 - very decent game (recommended).
3.0 - passably decent game (recommended).
2.5 - passably bad game (may or may not be recommended).
2.0 - bad game with little to offer (not recommended).
1.5 - very bad game with very little to offer (not recommended).
1.0 - abysmal game with no redeemable value whatsoever (not recommended).

Holy shiz I would never have the patience to write that long of a review unless I'm really bored. So congrats! Also it is a great review that details every aspect of the games that is needed to know if you want to make a informed decision if you want to buy it or not. I think more reviews should be like this because sometimes it is just hard to decide whether or not to buy a game because the reviews out there are just to vague or are indecisive about if they like it or not. Keep up the good work!
