An under-powered port of the PC classic, Doom for the Super NES suffers from choppy player movement, heavily pixelated graphics, grainy visuals and slow gameplay. Less egregious, but still annoying, the floor and ceiling textures are totally absent, and many of the wall textures and sound effects are missing. From a practical standpoint, the worst thing about the game is its confounding lack of battery back-up and/or password capabilities. One welcome aspect of this version is that it lets players restart the current level at any time. Other positives include music that is faithful to the original, and smooth strafing controls (thanks to the SNES controller's nifty L and R "shoulder" buttons). Super NES owners, unforunately thy Doom has come. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
