There was a surprise game for download on the Xbox Live Arcade service today – Doom! Well, technically it’s Ultimate Doom, but anyway.
Downloaded it, and played through the first three levels or so. It’s just like it has always been, only in some bizarre 1:1 ratio and smoother than ever. Online, however, it isn’t great. Some of the maps just don’t work in multiplayer, as people are too high above or below you. Yeah, you can shoot them without aiming up and down, but stupidly you can’t see them and you can’t look up and down.
Now, I know the original Doom didn’t have this ability, but it breaks many of the maps here. Bah.
