But Doom 64 is Doom just as much as Doom II and Doom III.
This about the original and only the original,which I still prefer the Jaguar over anything else,other than PC.
I agree that Doom 64 is a fairly decent in its own right though.
[QUOTE=gilly]My fave is the Jaguar version. I love not having music on.
The best version is the XBLA version, which trumps even the pc one. However, most people cannot play it since it's only available if you bought it before it was pulled.
ZDoom source port on PC easily trumps the XBLA version. All you need is the .wad files you get when you buy the game (say off Steam). ZDoom allows Doom to run natively in Windows (so full speed and no screen tearing at higher resolutions). It also adds modern keyboard and mouse support as well as the ability to jump. Modern keyboard + mouse controls will always beat using a controller for a first person shooter. ZDoom supports online multiplayer as well.
The Xbox and Xbox 360 have better versions of Doom than the Jaguar.
While I agree the 360 technically is the best, it's also not available to buy anymore and they seem to be being extremely slow to bring it back to the network. I prefer the Jaguar version though because the MIDI soundtrack spoiled a lot of the horror for me, the absense of that in the Jaguar version ups the atmosphere considerably.
Except by the Playstation.
The best console port is the Playstation version without a doubt. John Romero (Creator of Doom) called it the "Best DOOM Yet" when it came out. It has a full CD quality soundtrack instead of just MIDI like the PC version. It has dynamic lighting effects, and even a few exclusive levels. Plus it has both Ultimate Doom and Doom II on one disc.
Nothing can beat the PC. Dead Simple. The controls are spot on and there is practically infinate maps due to a large modding community.
Console, I'd say Xbox. Dual Anolog All The Way for consoles. And live. At least you can play on line (If you find someone who has it before it was pulled )
I'd also say the IOS port is great to, simaly because it is on the iphone, (or ipod touch) has basically dual analog controls- if you set it that way, and it costs 1 DOLLAR! I think that port gets overlooked alot.
