Dear Abandonia visitors: We are a small team that runs one of the largest DOS Games websites in the world. We have only 3 members of staff, but serve 450,000 users and have outgoing costs like any other top site for example: our servers, power, rent, programs, and staff. Abandonia is something special. It is a library of old games for you to download. It is like an old gaming arcade with all the old games in their original format. Abandonia is a place where you can find great old games and have fun four hours and years. To protect our independence, we are dependent of our friends using the site. We run on donations averaging around 6 USD (5 Euro). If everyone reading this gave the price of a cup of coffee, our fundraiser would be made easier. If Abandonia is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online for another year. Please help us forget fundraising and get back to Abandonia.
Doom 2 is definitely a classic shooter. Following on from Doom, you play the same character on his return to Earth. Of course, returning to Earth, instead of a wonderful party and maybe a medal or two for your heroic efforts you find that somehow the same aliens you fought on the Mars have now overrun Earth. Utilizing everything in your arsenal - 9mm, double-barreled shotgun, laser guns, and yes the infamous chainsaw - you must begin a new battle for Earth.
The gameplay is, again, very good for one of the first shooters. Hardcore fans of the previous games will thoroughly enjoy this one. The game also boasts dozens and dozens of levels, able to keep you occupied for hours of gory fun. The reason I gave this game a low rating is twofold. Firstly, the game just isn?t nearly up to par with current shooters or many other great shooters released during the time this game has existed. Secondly, the game has a serious lack of plot. I understand that one of the big reasons this game has such a huge following is due to that simple fact; less plot, more mindless violence. Alas, I personally need a decent plot to keep me coming back to play the game.
In closing, this game can be a lot of fun if you need to get your anger out, or just enjoy some mindless violence. But due to lack of plot, it probably won't keep your attention for too long. So grab your shotguns and chainsaws and get ready for some gore!
