Nightdive knocked it out of the park once again with yet another remaster that is so well-crafted that makes the original game look unplayable in comparison.

GREAT - Doom 64 is as fun to play today as it was back on the Nintendo 64, while looking better than ever. If you’re looking for a mindlessly entertaining way to pass the time until you can play Doom Eternal on the Switch this might be the best remedy for you.

Doom 64 is a great remaster of the somewhat forgotten Doom episode from Nintendo 64. It still offers unique visual style, great level design and fun gameplay. If you're a fan of retro shooters, you can't afford to miss it.

Doom 64 was, and still is, a great Doom. With this remastering we will be able to experience with our own hands this link that had been lost with the old Nintendo console. A Doom that preserves intact the benefits of the originals, offering a darker and more terrifying adventure, but without forgetting to whom it owes its name.

It's easy to take one look at Doom 64 and dismiss it as obsolete; but when you actually play through the first few hours of the game, you'll realize that not only Doom 64 is still a great first person shooter, but also that it proves why Doom is one of the greatest franchises ever made in the history of games.

A little piece of video game history that comes back to life after several years of exclusivity, perhaps more than necessary. This new release also features exclusive content and visual enhancements that offer a pretty decent result by today's standards. It would be a real sin to ignore DOOM 64.

It's classic Doom at its best, but also something else --an old school shooter that also tries to do new stuff.

DOOM 64 on Switch is a great package. It’s a very fun romp through a unique 32-level campaign that many fans will not have experienced before, and it comes bundled with six bonus levels intended to fill in the backstory between DOOM 64 and 2016’s DOOM (yes, you read that correctly). The game looks gorgeous, it plays wonderfully, there’s loads of content included, and you can play it where ever you like. Plus, with a price tag of $4.99 it’s well worth the cost of entry even just as a curiosity, but I suspect that once you step inside you’ll be hooked.

DOOM 64 is considered a cult classic, meaning that the people who love it, really love it. The one writing this doesn't though. It is way too slow, tries to have a horror atmosphere (and almost succeeds), although it is in no way a horror game, and, most importantly, the level design is mediocre at best, as its more about flipping switches than killing demons. Those who loved the original will be glad to know that this a very good port, with FHD resolution and an improved frame-rate - just don't expect any new content.

Doom 64 is an impressive port of the forgotten son of the series.
