DOOM II

Back when video games were first introducing the first-person shooter style, there was really only two titles to go to: Wolfenstein and DOOM. Both have seen their name carried on through the years with sequels and updates and even a movie adaptation for one of them. But it’s the original, cheesier adventures that will surely remain the favorites of that generation’s gamers.

Nowadays, these older video games are all finding their way to our next-gen systems, and you can find many of your favorite old titles in either the Xbox Live Marketplace or the PlayStation 3 Store. The latest of these titles is none other than DOOM II, which was released in 1994 and is now available to Xbox Live users everywhere via Bethesda Softworks.

The second game is known for holding nothing back when it came to the glorious pixelated blood and gore. There wasn’t a whole lot of story going on, but you got all kinds of new and powerful weapons and horrifying creatures to put down.

There’s even a lot of new additions to the game that will act as temptation devices for those thinking about purchasing the game. The Xbox Live version will come with 32 new levels and 6 new bosses (though it’s not clear if these are new over the original game or actually new to DOOM II). There’s also a never-before-seen bonus chapter, brand new achievements for you to earn, and multi-player and co-op options through Xbox Live, including the ability to have 4-person split-screen death matches. On top of all of that, you’ll be able to play in HD and with 5.1 surround sound.

DOOM II can be found in the Xbox Live Arcade, and will run you 800 Microsoft Points ($9.99).
