I think that we've all played doom before, but now id releases Final Doom, two 32 level campaigns that will run as PWADS for Doom 2, or on their own in Windows 95. If you have Doom II, and/or Doom, you can run them in Windows 95 if you have Final Doom. All you have to do is copy or move the doom2.wad or doom.wad file to the Final Doom directory, something that really came in handy for me. This is a great conclusion to Doom, however, even in the easiest mode of play, I still found it very challenging. I don't mind the challenge, but I would 've liked it more if it was easier. It has the traditional Doom II weapons, ranging from the Fist/Chain saw to the BFG 9000. There are no characters added either. Final Doom is just like any Doom II add on level, except its a lot larger, and it has 32 levels in each file. I recommend buying it if you really like Doom, but if you don't like Doom, you'll hate Final Doom. (Doom/Doom 2 not required)
