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.

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.

Its gameplay is refined and this port in particular cleans up its most egregious rough edge. The maps are as confusing as ever but being able to see where you're going makes it much more tolerable. If you're a classic Doom fan and have never played Doom 64, you owe it to yourself to pick it up. This just may be the best classic-style Doom.

Doom 64 invites players to revisit this overlooked gem of the series, and either alongside Doom Eternal or on its own, is well worth the price of admission.

A faithful port for an atmospheric and grim classic doom experience that contains new levels and definitely worth the 5$ price point

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.

Doom 64 is a game from 23 years ago, but even though 3D has changed a lot over the years, it's still a lot of fun and the new HD textures look gorgeous. Its format is perfect for short and intense games, especially on Nintendo Switch.

DOOM 64 deserves another bite at the apple, not least because it presents a clever and atmospheric twist on the classic DOOM formula that was previously thought lost to time. Able to stand on its own merits, DOOM 64 comes highly recommended to fans of both DOOM and retro shooters at large.

While it was already something of a relic when it launched on the N64 almost 25 years ago, Doom 64 remains a great example of just how refined a formula the series offers and just how good a job the late Midway did in the shadow of id Software. The lack of local multiplayer support still stings, even after all these years, but with support for motion controls on Switch – something Nightdive has already pulled off to a tee with its Turok ports – and the addition of a new DOOM Eternal-themed level, this is classic retro shooter that deserves a little more love.

Successful remaster of a great game: Even after 23 years, Doom 64 still plays incredibly fresh.
