DOOM II is a port of id's now ancient landmark shooter. I can't really lambast the game for failing to live up to today's standards, because that would be like yelling at an old woman for not being the perfect ten she used to be. Look at the screenshots. Did you expect anything different? Maybe you did, especially if you've played other Xbox Live Arcade ports like Serious Sam HD or Duke Nukem 3D. If you're looking for an update, you're not going to find it here. You're going to find armies of clones who all die the exact same way.
Sound is tricky business when it comes to re-releases. Some of them choose to be bold and reimagine the soundtrack. Many of them are successful in this regard; Bionic Commando: Rearmed and Super Street Fighter IV certainly are. DOOM II chooses to play it safe. Everything you heard in the original game is here, from the memorable MIDI tracks to the groans of zombies to that creepy rattle sound made by demons. Nothing to complain about.
