The game scared the rap out of me when I rented the game back at blockbuster when the game first come out. Man did it look awesome, the sprites were much scarier and the games music was frightening, and the weapons were really cool to look at and powerful, especially the iconic super shotgun.

I wish people would appreciate retro games for what they are and capable of.

What if I bought it in 97 and didn't like it much back then either? :) I did like the new aesthetic and the new effects but man Doom was tired by that time. Especially single player Doom...

I think Doom64 was Midway testing the waters and not taking many risks. It is only on a 8MB cart and they cut stuff to do this. They didn't even try for multiplayer, even when N64 was the hot new 4 player machine. That right there says cheap development investment to me. Gamespot gave it a 50% score. All for the low $60 price lol.
The game was great. I don't care what anyone says. Super shotgun, to the bfg, all the guns feel so much better than doom 1 and 2. You also can tell the games engine was a yes to see if the n64 could handle it for future games such as quake 1 and 2. Oh jeeze.
