Did You Know?


The Sega 32X version contains only seventeen maps, taken from the "Knee Deep in the Dead" and "The Shores of Hell" episodes. No maps from the third episode, "Inferno", have been included. (Maps present on the 32X port: E1M1-E1M8 and E2M1-E2M7, as well as the two secret levels E1M9 and E2M9). See more »


In the game, enemies can hear fired shots, which attracts their attention. But there's a bug in the game so that enemies can hear any attack, including your character's (silent) punches. Also, the enemies cannot hear the idling chainsaw, but once you attack with it they will be alerted. See more »

Crazy Credits

After the end credits on the Sega 32X version, the game reverts to a fake DOS prompt from which the player cannot exit without shutting off the game. See more »

Alternate Versions

In version 1.4 for the PC, an alteration was present. In Episode 1, Map 4: "Command Control", a structure originally lowers to the ground to create a pattern of a swastika on the floor. This was done as a reference to "Wolfenstein 3D" however, this offended many players so it was changed to a different, yet similar structure in this version.

Doom! One of the greatest video games ever!
10 May 2004 | by Movie NuttballSee all my reviews

Doom and its sequels are some of the greatest games ever created! It has a good story, incredible action, great music, awesome enemies, very fun, really interesting levels, and more! Below is an In-depth review of the game called Doom!

The Story: The toughest marine that ever lived just arrived on the red planet Mars which is the planet that is home to the UAC (Union Aerospace Corporation). This very corporation is conducting experiments on both moons Phobos and Deimos which the most important and top secret experiment is the inter-dimentional project. By sending objects from a portal on one moon to the other it is clearly a success. The people here are mysteriously disappearing and the individuals who are still around are turning insane without any explanation. Deimos just vanished without a trace and it is impossible to contact the base on Phobos so the tough marine and his troops go there and he is ordered to check out the area while his men check the place out inside. It has been a long time with no communication and then suddenly he hears gun fire and screaming and then he hears nothing! Everything just came to a halt! He goes in with his bravery, very little fire power and now he finds an unspeakable evil that he must fight or he will be doomed!

Game Play: This game has excellent game play. Everything is nice and smooth. It is in the first person shooter genre. You really play everything through a camera view which is an excellent way of shooting enemies and monsters! The game has many stages which get more difficult as the game goes on! You can select several difficulty modes if you are an experienced player. There are a gob of monsters here which many are very tough and they all mean business! But how do you fight an army of hell's monsters with no help from other commandos? Thankfully you are armed with a pistol which you shoot off against some of the former humans and get the ammo that they had. In Doom you basically walk through level by level shooting and trying to escape each obstacle!

The weapons that you are able to obtain are the following:

1. Fist - Being a powerful guy with much courage and able to punch holes in walls why wouldn't he want start a fight with somebody even if they are legitimately from hell? This is only if he runs out of ammo and has no choice but to put the knuckles on and fight mano a mano!

2. Chainsaw - This is a great choice if the man is out of ammunition This saw is really great for those messy close encounters!

3. Pistol - A simple gun. Just pull the trigger and it gives your new buddies something to be p!$$ed off about!

4. Shotgun - This is a powerful gun which has a pumping mechanism and can bring down a former human really fast!

5. Chain Gun - This is a very affective gattling gun which takes the bullets your trusty pistol takes!

6. Rocket Launcher - This kicker fires one rocket at a time but it will weaken the bigger guys nicely!

7. Plasma Rifle - This baby is one cool thing! It emits a nice blue plasma force which is just what those devilish creatures want!

8. BFG9000 - The ultimate weapon! One blast from this and it'll fry anything in its path!

The monstrosities in the game are the following:

Former Humans: These guys were once buddies with the great marine but since they are now the living dead they despise the living and he has no other choice but to gun them down into tiny pieces!

Former Human Sergeants: They are also the living dead! You think these Sarges were bad @$$ when they were alive? Hah think again! These shotgunners are twice as tough than they were back in the Corps. and they can pack a punch like no body's business!

Imps: Mean mothers with muscular physiques, brown skin and spines on their bodies. These humanoid beasties shoot out fire balls and can be a stinkin pest especially if they are found in groups! With their razor sharp claws they can rip a person's face off like it was nothin!

Demons: Large pink colored gorilla shaped horned monsters with kissers like bulldogs that has a mouth full of teeth and a hunger attack for flesh!

Spectre: These guys are invisible demons and seem even harder to kill!

Lost Souls: Flaming screaming skulls come flying out of no where! Talk about a nuisance!

Cacodemons: Cacodemons are huge hovering spiny cyclops heads that emits powerful lightning like balls at its opponents from its chomper. They hiss with anger and are extremely tough!

Barons of Hell: Huge muscular minotaur like monsters that throws green plasma. They are as large as a tank and as tough as one. These bulls don't mess around and when they smell fresh meat it'll soon become dead!

Cyberdemon: Things from hell just don't get any bigger than this! The Cyberdemon is a real baddie! This big daddy's rocket launcher and speed is no cool surprise for the good marine so he is going to give all hes got and more if he wants to survive because this living skyscraper is nearly impossible to destroy!

The Spider Mastermind: Arguably larger than the Cyberdemon, the Spider Mastermind is as tough as him with her huge metal legs and a massive chain gun that'll make puny humans into tiny rubble!

Graphics: The graphics are spectacular in most of the versions! I prefer the ones on the Super Nintendo, the Sega Genesis 32X, and of course the PC! I just love those skies!

Difficulty: The game has many stages and episodes which get more difficult as the game goes on! You can select several difficulty modes if you are an experienced player. A clever move indeed!

Music: The music is great! Just awesome catchy tunes through out the game! In My opinion its some of the best ever in a video game!

Sound: The sound is fantastic! The noises all of the creatures make are great and are realistic! The gun firing sounds are also decent. This really is a major factor here!

Overall: I have always loved Doom! I like how the corpses just stay where they fell. I love the action, guns, the music, and the creatures! If you ask Me this game has just about everything! If you like shoot em up games then I strongly recommend you play Doom today!

To purchase this video game on many game formats check out Amazon.com!
