Let the Obsession begin. Again. This time, the entire forces of the netherworld have overrun Earth. To save her, you must descend into the stygian depths of Hell itself!

Far from earth, the UAC recommenced their experiments on on of the moons of Jupiter. A spaceship, mistaken for a supply vexxel on radar, hovered above the base. Hideous demons poured out, blanketing the base with death. All your comrades were quickly slaughtered or zombified. This time, it's not about survival. It's about revenge.
Master Levels for DOOM II

The complete megahit game that set the world afire. Plus All-New Episode IV: Thy Flesh Consumed. The demons came and the marines died. Except one. You are the last defense against these hell-spawned hordes. Prepare for the most intense mutant-laden, blood-splattered action ever! The texture-mapped virtual world is so real, you don't just play DOOM - you live it.
A fine piece of gaming historyJokin93 | March 30, 2014 | See all Jokin93's reviews »
I must begin by saying that I have played all the DOOM games and I enjoyed ALL of them and this pack includes THE BEST of the series.
Sure, you can say that they are old, with pixelated graphics, but these games are 20 years old. They are responsible for the evolution of PC gaming and they stand as standard of evolution for the FPS genre. Had it not been for DOOM, FPS's wouldn't have been as good as they are today.
The gameplay is old-school, yet fluid and very enjoyable and the whole experience is hardcore. So if you are into those, you should definitely get this fantastic collection of classics.

Wolf 3D might have been the “first” FPS (it wasn’t, technically speaking), but Doom was the one that really kicked things off for the – at the time – budding FPS genre.
In this pack you have The Ultimate Doom, Doom II: Hell On Earth, Master Levels for Doom II, and Final Doom. This is excellent value for the price, and gives you well over a hundred well designed and challenging levels to play in with several different awesome weapons along with Bobby Prince’s iconic heavy metal-inspired soundtrack, which makes demon slaying all that much more fun.
Graphically – what do you expect – it’s 1993 here in all its glory, but the good news is there are a number of source ports out there that will make it look that much better with higher resolutions and high resolution textures too, giving you some 3D character models to look at, even. And on top of that there are literally hundreds if not thousands of fan-made mods and maps out there that will ensure endless fun for years, maybe even decades to come.
Get this if you're into old school shooters. No question about it – you'll love it.
DOOM, a reminder of simpler daysmgold07 | Dec. 1, 2013 | See all mgold07's reviews »
When DOOM was originally released the genre of FPS was still just finding its legs. Sure, there had been a number of games before DOOM was released but DOOM truly defined the genre. After DOOM's release the impact of DOOM was so great that most games we know of today would be called "DOOM clones". The gameplay is fast, and action packed; it will be challenging if you're new and cranking up the difficulty really feels rewarding once you beat the game again. DOOM pits you against hordes of demons, and you, being the badass you are must simply cut through them to save the world...of Mars. It's a simple story for a simple game; anybody who's played DOOM knows that the best strategy is "shoot it till it dies". To modern gamers, playing the original DOOM may feel strange. The game wasn't truly 3D and made use of some clever engine cleverness to make it seem 3D. This means that in order to get an optimized playing experience for most 3rd party tools are required, but these are lightweight and truly enhance your experience. In addition to the base DOOM game, DOOM also has a large amount of modded content to choose from giving you plenty bang for your buck.

If you're about 30 and haven't played this game, where have you been? Doom is a classic FPS and was a milestone in terms of technical achievement for the time. Although the game 20 years old (at the the time of writing) there are still mods being supported for it (a quick search on google brings up many (e.g. extra maps, graphical changes, changed enemies).
This pack has the best of the Doom games IMHO. Although Doom 3 is still a great game, you can't really compare the two due to the number of years between them being made.
Although the graphics (in the non-modded version at least) may look a little dated these days, it's still a lot more fun to play (gameplay wise) having a certain charm which many games since have failed to have.
Pick it up! :)

The Doom series has been around for a hell of a long time, but still has plenty of kick in it. I remember playing these games as a kid many years ago; and even to this day it brings back great memories. The music, sound fx, graphics, controls, enemies, etc... are still just as amazing! Once you play these games, you will find there is a certain love or fascination you will have with them that will never die. Hell, I still get a thrill out of finding secrets that I had not found as a kid.
If you decide to play these through Steam, it will run on a dos box, which might need configuring to get it to work. Otherwise you can install the games through Steam and get a front-end/launcher for the WADS, to add some customization to the games. Customization includes: graphical tweaks, sound configuration, and a GUI to run parameters that would otherwise need to be typed into a command line. If you are looking for a very simple launcher, without all the bells and whistles, chocolate doom is a great place to start.
Either way you roll the dice, through dos-box or launcher, the Doom games have plenty of replay value. However, say you get bored after the 5th nightmare difficulty play-through of the collection, do not fret! The Doom community has made plenty of custom WADS that correlate with Doom, Doom II, etc... Some of these will be extremely challenging, others look to replicate the original games and expand on the story/fun, and some just want to be their own story. Played through a handful of those and want something new again? Take a look at some of the front-end/launchers that have multiplayer capabilities. For your information, custom wads and multiplayer will require a front-end/launcher.
These games are definitely worth your time and money. Though they look old and dated, they have great action and replay value.
