Doomed

Update: Review of the Doomsday Engine version of the classic game Doom

Well, the next game I got around to writing about wasn't Loom, but Doom. Well, close enough. Every true gamer should be familiar with Doom, but not everyone might know about the modern 'source ports' which have not only brought the game to modern platforms, but also greatly improved the graphics and controls. The Doomsday Engine is one of the most advanced of these ports. It's true to the original game, and can be configured to look and play very close to it, but also supports much prettier polygon graphics, improved textures, lighting and mouse control similar to more modern FPS games. Good old Doom with nicer graphics and more precise control, what could be cooler? It's the only FPS game I've ever really loved, and will probably always be.
