Ratings and Reviews
One of my friends think Doom is cr@p and Black Ops 2 is superior. He's dead wrong. This is the godfather of FPS games. Insulting this game is an extremely foolish thing to do. It's like insulting your parents because without them, you wouldn't be here; like if Doom wasn't here, we wouldn't have Call of Duty, Battlefield, Halo, etc. Anyways, few flaws which are very minor is the movement feels a bit sluggish. There are also some graphical bugs like enemies overlapping barrels when they're supposed to be behind them or whatever. Also, please change the music back to its original form. My favorite track, The Imp's Song, doesn't sound as good as the original. Still, fantastic game overall. If you love FPS games, definitely get this. Also, please, please, PLEASE port Doom 2. I don't want the cr@ppy RPG, I want the real classic Doom 2 on iOS. That would complete me. PLEASE MAKE IT!!!
Why take away multiplayer?
When this first came out it had multiplayer support. Then an update just took it away. All the Doom clones still have multiplayer. Why take away such an awesome feature? My sons and I used to love playing multiplayer on our iPads together, and now we don't play Doom at all because we can't play together, thank you for breaking what I paid for! Now can I buy any more apps from ID? No, because I don't know when they're just going to break things and take away features. You can't take away features after something is bought, unless you fix them and put them back, that's called stealing. It would be like if Ford came to your house and yanked the stereo out of your car while you were sleeping under the guise of saying they were improving your car, but then never gave your stereo back. In the real world that's called theft, and it's a dishonest way to do business, and customers that get burned aren't repeat customers.
Get it!!!!!!!!!! Edit: update this.
Edit: I’m writing this about 10 years after I wrote this review, I’m addressing this to id software(or Bethesda?). I would like you to update this to be compatible for iOS 12. I’d like to play doom again. I don’t think you will anytime soon, but I paid for this game so many years ago, one of the first games I bought from the App Store with my own money, and I cannot even play it as of right now on my iPhone or iPad. My rating will go down for right now. If sega can keep updating their retro games, why can’t you? It seems like you haven’t updated this game for a long, long time. Now, enjoy my review(which isn’t even a review) of this game when I was about 14 years old:
I remember playing this wen I was I lil kid and I loved it the only thing is where are all of the cheats??? Actually there r.... Put four fingers on screen and keyboard pops up and type in "god" 4 god mode...and "give" for ammo...enjoy and it does work I just did it
