Critic Reviews for DOOM Classic
intelligent and exciting, SIGIL 2 is a fantastic and wonderful continuum, dense and complex, intricate and carefree, enriched with many references as well as positive elements within it. It is designed for hardcore gamers and those who cannot help but play and play endlessly productions of this caliber, who literally have body and soul for DOOM, and sacrificed much more than some would think. To be lived intensely.

Overall the Doom Collection on Switch is a treat to own. It has literally provided several hours of entertainment. Each game offers a smooth, slick gameplay experience and offers players some serious bang for the buck. Despite the sleep mode issue, all three titles are worth picking up if you're a fan of the series and are looking to introduce some Demons to the business end of a double-barrel.
Doom's arrival on the wonderful system that is the Nintendo Switch is the perfect opportunity to be reminded of why it's such a fantastic experience despite its age. It's old-school FPS fun at its finest, and now you can carry it's dark corridors and hellish landscapes on the smallest of backpacks. Sadly, while the gameplay has been left intact, this version is far from the perfect port that it could be, due to a couple of odd omissions and changes - but at least it is super cheap (as it should).
All in all, my conclusion was pretty simple: if it’s been a few years since you played the original Doom — or perhaps you’ve never played it if you’re a young ‘un — then I highly, highly recommend you take a bit of time to enjoy it today. It’s a game that holds up extraordinarily well even after 30 years — and a first-person shooter that I’d still gladly take in favour of a significant number of today’s offerings.
