Wolfenstein 3D: Spear of Destiny

Wolfenstein 3D: Spear of Destiny is a first-person shooter for PC by id Software. It is the follow-up to Wolfenstein 3D but the story is actually a prequel. Basically, this time around you’re on a mission to obtain the spear the was used in the crucifixion of Christ.

Turok: Dinosaur Hunter (N64)

Doom 64 is a first person shooter developed by Id Software and distributed by Midway for the Nintendo 64. I’m going to assume you have already played Doom, seen my review of it, or know enough about it to avoid going over all of the basics. It was a largely popular game that has been ported to nearly every device imaginable. You might think that Doom 64 is just a Nintendo 64 port of Doom, much like the SNES port or the Playstation’s port The Ultimate Doom. However, this is more akin to something like the Playstation’s Final Doom in that it’s a game based on the Doom engine with all new levels. Though, unlike Final Doom, it’s considered a spinoff.
