I got the original Doom for XBLA (heck, I've owned it for just about every platform available at some point) and had fun with it. I'll probably pick up Doom 2 as well as I haven't played it in years. I just wish the developers would spruce up the graphics a little bit. I don't expect a complete makeover, but as they are, while still a ton of fun, they look really mediocre on large displays.

I'll probably pick this up....many of my college tests received a low score because of this game. Would be nice if they'd spruce up the graphics...even if would just be on the creatures/enemies.


Regardless, a great game. memmmmories.

Ooooohhh thank f****ckin' gawd, yes!



About freaking time! Hehehe. I love Doom and Doom 2. This is great news. Even comes with a new epidsode. Sweet! I wonder if Final Doom will be the next to come out?


Now that I have Duke3d, Doom, Wolfenstein, and with this coming out.... they gotta release Shadow Warrior. Heretic and maybe even the 'Blood' series would be pretty sweet as well.

i tried the doom demo when it first came out and got motion sickness. tried the doom demo again about 2 weeks ago and almost spewed. i hope there's a way to adjust this when doom 2 comes out.

Something like that would be a nice upgrade and probably wouldn't tax the developers or the console too much. Probably won't happen, but it would be nice.

Try playing with the lighting in the room and sitting further back from your TV so that it doesn't cover as much of your peripheral vision. Those two remedies seem to work for some folks.


I also wouldn'd mind seeing the Hexen / Heretic games make an appearance at some point.

Real men and women play the Doom games with as close to the original look as reasonably possible!

Bah. Real men use the chainsaw to kill that guy. The rocket launcher is for wusses.

Cool. I'd also like to see Quake and Unreal (the original single player version). By the way, I know that Unreal is Epic and not Id, but I remember playing Doom, then Quake, then Unreal, and I'd like to be able to play them all on my Xbox from the comfort of my sofa.

In case anyone is not aware, Quake 4 for the 360 (which was a launch title) included a really good version of Quake 2 on a separate disk - now I'm wondering if that could be installed on the hard drive.


Seeing as that engine is out there, it probably wouldn't be too difficult to port the original Quake game to the 360.


BTW, any firm dates on when Doom II is slated to be released?

If Epic updated the original Unreal game to run on the 360 like the fan-hacked upgraded version of the game with HD resolution and textures, whooweee! That would be a no-questions buy for me.

tell me more, tell me more !!!


I installed the original Unreal on a laptop that I have, and I did put a recent patch on it (226 final patch), and it looks great, only problem is that it runs WAAAYYY to fast. I'm not sure if it's the one that you are mentioning though. Do you have a link to that version? Was it the 226 final patch? I'd much rather have the one you're talking about if I could get it to run at a normal speed. Certainly, of course, I'd much rather play it on my 360, just sitting on my sofa, but it would be fun to mess around with on the laptop.

A bit of additional info..

http://www.oxmonline.com/article/previews/a-f/doom-ii

In addition to the classic 32-level campaign, plus the expected online DeathMatch and co-op, this re-issue is packing four-player split-screen and an entirely new nine-level expansion set, designed in 2009 by Nerve Software under the direction of id. Dubbed “No Rest for the Living,” it continues on Earth after Hell’s forces have (seemingly) been vanquished. Nerve boss Brandon James tells us that the new content is designed to be played in four-player co-op on Ultra Violence difficulty, contains “a plethora of secrets to find,” and “is geared toward a more hardcore experience.” He’s not lying — the first level alone of the new episode threw Revenants, Hell Knights, Pain Elementals, an Arachnotron, and multiple Mancubuses at us. Whew! Better still is the unbelievably warm, fuzzy feeling you get when you realize that you’re playing brand-new, id-authorized Doom II content in 2009. Yes!

Man I'm looking forward to this title. I've been playing doom since '93 and owned or still own it for most platforms it came out on. I even have the crap version that came out on the SNES (couldn't save at all). But I had to get rid of the 32x version because frankly the screen was way too small to enjoy. I hope that multiplayer version is online co-op because I'll be hard pressed four people who can come to the house just to play doom.
