Doom Or Wolfenstein

Recommended Posts

There have been posts in the past where people post whether they think Doom or Wolfenstein is the more enjoyable game. These posts are often mixed into threads talking about other Jag games.

 

So lets try a dedicated thread:

 

Which Game Do You Prefer: Doom or Wolfenstein, and why?

 

For myself, I prefer Doom. Good framerate, good graphics, love the varied weapons, and the general atmosphere of the game (dark lighting and sounds) is more to my liking. All of these combined get me into the flow of the game and its seems like it really is "Me Against The World".

 

Wolfenstein is very well done and I enjoy it alot but Doom is the better choice for me.

I prefer Wolfenstein on account that I don't own a copy of Doom. :P

I played both of these to death on the PC years before I got a Jag and I preferred Doom by a wide margin.

 

But I prefer Wolf3D on the Jag because it plays closer to the original for me. Both are fun and action packed so no real complaints :)

I recall that I was shot down about a year ago in a thread in which I most emphatically claimed that "Wolfenstein" was a "better" game than "Doom", but I still stand by that. "Doom"'s a good FPS, but I like the presentation (and plotline) of "Wolfenstein" much more. :)

Doom over Wolfenstein for me. Doom has the lighting, the angles, the textures. Also the characters in JagDoom are 3 dimensional, whereas in Wolf3d they are only two dimensional. Even the PC version of Wolf3d the characters are 3-d.

 

The missing music for me is nothing since I also have the PC version and the PC in game music is nothing great or memeorable. I want music, I'll listen to the radio. :wink:

Only recently acquired Wolf 3D, but I still like Doom better. Better graphics, scarier enemies, multiplay... Plus, it's a gaming icon whereas the original Wolf3D was quickly forgotten after Doom came out.

 

I also get tired of the samey graphics of Wolf3D and I get lost too easily... :|

Seeing I don't own either on the Jaguar, but I have played both on the Jag. I would have to say DOOM is better. I just think it plays better, but I have always liked DOOM over Wolf3d. Even back on PC.

Well I would say Doom for the jaguar is great, also Wolfenstein! But the Doom graphics and the atmosphere are better! on the other hand wolfenstein has music, actualy (I think) realy cool music 8) . So i would say Doom is better to play in large doses, and wolfenstein in small doses! I guess its graphics or music! Iam going to keep it as they are both equally good games, no "better" desision for me :? (all my desisions are based off of the versions for the Jaguar only)

I've owned both Jaguar games, and I love Wolfenstein! The in game music is great, it's super fast, and the graphics are sharp. The game is very polished.

 

One of my favorite Jaguar games! :)

I like both, but then they're not really trying to be the same kind of game. To me Doom plays more like a 'suspense-em-up' whereas Wolf allows the player to go in with all guns blazing a bit more...not that this is in any way discouraged in Doom :D

 

For me though the PC version of Doom will always be better purely because I learned to play it on a keyboard (the Jagpad feels wrong, somehow) and I really loved the music - its removal was a very sore point with me and I think it took a lot away from the game dynamics that it was disabled in the Jag version. Sure, it looks nicer on the Jag, but to me the PC one is more fun to play.

 

Doom is one the only game that's been on my laptop since I got it and will never leave :D

I agree with you. While Doom is good, I prefer Wolfenstein a bit. I'd rather blow away Nazis than random monsters. Doom can also be too dark at times.

Well, I've learned something from this thread. Those who picked Wolf3d over JagDoom are all out of their minds!  :P

 

We are all out of our minds at AA....Just some more than others.......

Hate to say it, because I like Wolf 3D a lot, but really... Doom.

 

I mean, even Doom fanatics like the Jag version of Doom. That says a lot.

Lets put it this way - If you want an arcade game get Wolf3D - the speed and superior weapons make this one pretty easy.

 

If you want a 3D shooter with strategy and suspense get Doom.

 

Doom is 32x better (pun intended) than Wolf3D IMHO.

 

I think the Jag Wolf levels are a bit different than the PC ones - Its larger IIRC.
