Chris Berrow - It doesn't get much more classic than do the original first person shooter which has been rereleased this month on mobile devices.

I had actually played the original Doom from 1993. This is what I would describe as a faithful pointless remake, so they remade it exactly the same.

Okay, but I don't know why. Because the controls are awkward. Do you really want to go back and play Doom now. I mean if you want the nostalgia trip. Okay get this game it's really really cheap, like 5 pounds 99.

Does it look any better? No, it's exactly the same game. Those controls are fiddly; it feels like you're running on ice... but that was kind of like what the original was like.

It's just a pure nostalgia trip. But I don't know why you would buy this one, and I think also because it's such a such an old game... six pounds is actually quite expensive. Anyway it is out now. If you really want to play it again it's available on IOS and Android now.
