The Ultimate Doom Completed... Again.
Yesterday, I finished The Ultimate Doom for the millionth time. I've lost count of how many times I've played through this classic, however I've done it twice now on the Xbox, and the game never ceases to entertain after all these years.
The Ultimate Doom is truly a classic, with fast paced shooter gameplay that still gets the blood pumping. A lot of the game's levels are short by todays standards, and certainly simple to complete, but they are no less fun and easy to enjoy. With Shotgun in hand (as well as several other weapons), you simply move from room to room in an infested martian research facility crawling with demons and zombies. Your basic objective is to exit the levels, blowing the shit out of anything that gets in your way.
It truly is a testament to the game that played such a large role in shaping modern day video games that it is still a joy to play after nearly 13 years.
