Those who are fans of the original Doom games will no doubt have a blast with the game, even if the shortcomings can be aggravating at times. There are flaws, but there’s no doubt this is a fun game that captures the essence of what made those early FPS games so addictively fun. Just don’t expect it to hold your hand in the way modern shooters do.
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.
I think I would have liked DOOM 64 if I’d realized what it was when I was a kid. I can imagine myself staying up late with my friends, passing a controller back and forth, each of us glued to the TV. I can’t go back and tell that kid that he should pull DOOM 64 off the wall at his local Blockbuster and give it a chance. But I can give it the attention it deserves now, because DOOM is eternal, and those demons aren’t gonna slay themselves.
