"An awesome sequel to the legendary FPS game"
After the moon base invasion from Doom, now here is Hell on Earth. Planet Earth has now been conquered by the demons we slayed in the original Doom. Once again, you are the only marine left, as at the beginning, all your buddies were dead. Good luck saving your home!
Awesome graphics. The same old enemies are well designed, and the weapons are still the same. Items are easy to see too, as long as you are in a right place. Everything is still the same. Watch out if you are in a dark area though: it may be so dark, enemies could get cheap hits on you, possibly killing you.
You blast your way through 32 levels getting keys and solving puzzles, picking up weapons at your disposal. A new weapon has been added: the Super Shotgun. More powerful than the shotgun, but it fires 2 bullets at a time, and takes longer to reload. New enemies have been added too: Hell Knight, Revenant, Arch-Vile, Arachnotron, Mancubus, Heavy Weapon Dude, and Pain Elemental. You also solve puzzles, grab keys, and much more through the levels. Before you start your game, you pick your skill level: I'm Too Young To Die, Hey, Not Too Rough, Hurt Me Plenty, Ultra Violence, or Nightmare. The harder your skill level is, the more enemies appear, and they can cause more damage towards you.
Sound Effects: 10/10
If you have played the original Doom, you'll hear the same old sound effects here. Gun firing, enemies being killed, and much more. Pain Elementals make a strange noise when you hit them, and a Heavy Weapon Dude's Chaingun doesn't sound like ours when he fires.
New music for each level has been added, and it is good. Even in the early music, it still sounds good, and the Doom series has the best music ever, even better than my other favorite games.
Come on, even if you beat this game for the first time, don't think of not playing it again! You can try a harder skill level, go explore some more stuff, and if you cheated in the previous file, go through the game without cheating.
Rent or Buy?
I am telling you, anybody should buy this game, it's one of the best on the PC! Or, if you have the money, you can go and get the Doom Collector's Edition, which has Ultimate Doom, Doom II, and Final, for only $20. Or the Depths of Doom Trilogy, which has Ultimate Doom, Doom II, and the Master Levels for Doom II.
10/10 in every category: graphics, sound effects, music, gameplay, and replayabilty.
