Hell on Earth... and I couldn't be happier 0

As a lifelong Doom fan, I was extremely skeptical when I heard that the granddaddy of all first person shooters would be making its way to Xbox Live a few years ago. In the day of modern, twin stick controlled shooters, how on earth could Doom possibly hold a candle? Well, it ends up that good monsters, sweet weapons, and frequent white-knuckle situations still cut it. Doom managed to transfer very well to the Xbox Live Arcade.
