I first played this game around 18 years ago when I managed to just experience the first chapter before throwing the mouse and key bored and screaming like a little kid that I was . With its hordes of invading demons & floating beast from Hell and Awasome rocking Midi tracks , hidden secrets in each level this really has stood the test of time.

Plot Summary :
The player takes the role of an unnamed space marine (“Doomguy”) who has been punitively posted to Mars after assaulting his commanding officer, who ordered his unit to fire on civilians. The Martian space marine base acts as security for the Union Aerospace Corporation, a multi-planetary conglomerate, which is performing secret experiments with teleportation by creating gateways between the two moons of Mars, Phobos and Deimos. Mars is considered by space marines to be the dullest assignment imaginable. This all changes when the UAC experiments go horribly wrong.
Computer systems on Phobos malfunction, Deimos disappears entirely, and “something fragging evil” starts pouring out of the gateway, killing or possessing all UAC personnel. Responding to a frantic distress call from the overrun scientists, the Martian marine unit is quickly sent to Phobos to investigate, where the player character is left to guard the hangar with only a pistol while the rest of the group proceeds inside. The marine hears assorted radio messages, gunfire, and screams, followed by silence: “Seems your buddies are dead.”
