In Meeples & Miniatures Episode 4, Neil reviews the boardgame Doom which is based on the video game of the same name. The review is extensive and explains the background used, which you might not know if you were unfamiliar withe the computer version. The game sounds quite good, as a similar kind of game to Space Hulk with some of the 'Deathmatch' and 'Capture the Flag' type scenarios in as well. Neil goes on to make comments about the lack of support that Fantasy Flight Games gave to the game subsequently, which might put some people off.
However, the sound quality is really pretty poor for most of the review. The main review was recorded for the "It's Time for Games" podcast and Neil has recorded an introduction and conclusion to tack on (both of which sound fine). I recommend you give this a go if you are thinking of playing Doom, otherwise the poor sound quality makes this one quite missable.

Heretical Gaming is my blog about my gaming life, featuring small skirmishes and big battles from many historical periods (and some in the mythic past or the far future too). The focus is on battle reports using a wide variety of rules, with the occasional rules review, book review and odd musing about the gaming and history. Most of the battles use 6mm-sized figures and vehicles, but occasionally 15mm and 28mm figures appear too.
