Doom II comes to XBLA

Today, the 3D pixelated blood and gorefest that is Doom II finally hits the XBox Live Arcade scene with more entrails and flying eyeballs than a barbecue at Hannibal Lecter’s.  An incredible sixteen years on from its initial release in 1994, Doom II is still heralded as one of the great forerunners of the modern day 3D FPS genre.  Developed by id Software and brought to you by Bethesda Softworks, the all new Doom II not only has Achievements but a co-op feature… this is 800 Microsoft points well spent!
