I'm now officially pissed off! :mad:

My 360 is out for repairs, I have 5 games sitting here I haven't gotten a chance to play yet, and now Doom gets released in the arcade and I can't play it yet! :mad:

WTF? 800 points? I could go buy Ultimate Doom collection in a jewel case for $4.99. I'm not paying $10 for that.

i might get the demo or soemthin, never really was a big doom fan i think its highly overrated.
nonetheless i have doom for snes,ps1, and xbox:p.
side note~ this is a classic game, a 'coin-op classic'...why doesnt it have the same price as all of the others???

probably because its not quite as classic as joust, scramble, or frogger... its the generation AFTER such i guess....

plus it has split screen co-op, online co-op with up to 4 people, online deathmatch... the game is significantly longer than most classics... that would be my guess

This was the most random thing I've seen on XBLA.. I dont think anyone even heard this was in development for the Arcade. Good job Microsoft, you guys should do this more often, nice element of surprise.. Will definitely be getting this! Sure $10 seems steep, but I gotta get it to keep my collection strong!

Bought it, played it, glad I did.

I'll be straight up; I was born after the Doom phenomenon hit it's peak, so I was never too into it. Buying it tonight (This morning? I'm in the UK) was pretty fun, and I completed Episode 1. Also got Nightmare after a few tries.

Plus it's quite unique for Xbox Live.

Well, its obvious that you didn't play it for the PC. It's the same damn game, what was you expecting when you paid your $10? doom one with new graphics? That is why it is in the Arcade section, it brings back to life the older games... doesnt make them better..

Anyways i love this game, i have always been a fan of DOOM they did a really great job with surprising everyone. The Co-op is awesome, deathmatch kicks ass, and the game play still awesome. Thats why i paid $10 with out any question.

It would be so awesome if they made "Duke Nukem" that was a big PC game that i played and loved..

Amen to that!

Duke Nukem FTW! :D

Dudes, i played doom when it was first released on my old 386 and it was so slow i had to turn the graphics down to look like wolfenstein, and even now playing it on my pad ion front of the telly, i remember how i felt the first time i played it..... it was fab then and its fab now, its great to see that uncle gates is thinking of us ;) - anyway this opens the door for loads more great classics to come onto Arcade... and im imopressed as hell with how they kets it quiet.... thanks bill! - we love it! - its well worth the $10 or whatever it was because its a classic and its one of the most important games in FPS history, also, its simple fun for people who love gameplay not graphics, its not all about the bling lads, its about having a good time, and for me doom does that, better than most!

boooooooooi you crazy!:Bounce:

It's a classic. If the graphics were upgraded to something like cloning clyde or outpost graphics then it would totally be not worth it, but old doom is AWESOME

On another note, does anyone know if Doom II is gonna come out?

I don't know, but I'm certainly holding out hope. Double-barrel shotty for the win!

I wasted so much of my life with Doom and it's offspring. Love to get the chance to play it again. And with voice chat over XBox Live, it's like everything you wished Doom could be back in the day. Finally, someone brings something back from my youth and makes it better instead of making it suck. Thanks Live Arcade guys!

Not to mention the fact that co-op play is awesome. Gotta spread the co-op love.

I remember hooking up our two PCs over the old modem to play these. The only difference now is that you can chat while you play! What a nostalgia trip, I love this game. Best XBox Live Arcade title so far imo.

Here's hoping for Wolf3d or Doom2 to follow. Though I'd really like to see Monkey Island or some such LucasFilm/LucasArts title appear, surely that won't ever happen.

Saying it's the best arcade game is a little overexaggerated....

Marble Blast Is, and always will be...

No way, Marble Blast is good but Geometry Wars has got to be the best xbla game. I bought Doom and am looking forward to playing multiplayer, but not had time yet.
