Doom Reborn is a mod that aims to recreate the original Doom and Doom 2 in the far more technologically advanced Doom 3. Six years ago (wow), we selected it as a Mod of the Week, although we noted that it was still in a very pre-release state at the time, with wonky (sometimes nearly absent) AI and only a few levels complete. It’s come a long way since then, and while it’s still not finished, it looks really good—and even better, you no longer need Doom 3 to run it.

The mod still makes use of the id Tech 4 engine, according to the ModDB description, but instead of having to set it up as a Doom 3 mod, you can simply download it, then extract and run it. It’s a fairly big download as a result, about 1.3GB in total, but it looks and sounds like the real deal: I played a few of the opening levels from Doom 1 and 2, and making allowances for the differences and quirks in the engine (a cursor appears when you stand in front of a secret door, for instance), they all matched up just about perfectly with how I remember them.
