- "Classic" (by The Lightning Stalker, 6 May 2004) [9/10]
These sequences actally surpass the original Doom music in some respects. They are in many cases much longer and incorporate more insturments with more complex melodies. While not as grim as the original Doom sequances, they capture more of the fast-paced nature of first-person-shooter (FPS) gameplay. Enjoy these sequences from the originators of the FPS genre. As far as MIDI music goes, it doesn't get much better than this!
- "Pretty creepy" (by quackbal, 16 May 2004) [8/10]
Doom 2 wasn't such as big hit as Doom 1, as Doom 3 won't be such a big hit as Doom 2. However, the music is EXCELLENT, and probably ranks higher in Doom 2 than the original Doom. It is more sinister; and contains more variety.
- "Doom 2 music" (by kmk, 29 May 2004) [10/10]
the music of doom 2 today is not as good as the original version from when it was made. the enhanced one today is to modern and takes away the feeling of it.
- "good music" (by tyron, 24 Oct 2004) [8/10]
i reckon the music is sweet and really suites the game
- "Refueling base! Cool!" (by McDuck, 21 May 2005) [8/10]
Refueling base was nice.

- "Call me crazy, but..." (by Pathogen, 15 Nov 2005) [6/10]
Frankly, I didn't enjoy Doom II's music as much as I did its' prequel. Bobby Prince's strange yet palpable music for Doom was worth listening to outside of the game, but Doom II?
In most of the midis, you get about ten bars or so that get repeated endlessly throughout the track, with a few variations in pitch/sound in an attempt to add variety. Some of the tunes are catchy, but there's so little repetition it quickly becomes irritating listening to the same stuff over and over again. It's like "The Song that Never Ends" that kids used to sing at my primary school.
Another problem is that most of the midis are quiet and underspoken, which might be appropriate in a horror-based survival game just doesn't cut it with Doom II's demon-blasting gut-wrenching non-stop action. There are some decent midis in the game, but this definitely isn't music that belongs in a game like Doom II.
- "Good but..." (by Tepe, 19 May 2007) [5/10]
Only with the playing game. Without playing that tunes sounds little bit like old sierras adventure games but much speedy. Points what i give are without playing doom 2
- "Hell on earth" (by Warcow, 16 Nov 2011) [9/10]
Just as good as the first game's soundtrack with songs that makes it a pleasure to play the game. A funny thing is that Bobby have used some parts from some metalsongs (Pantera, Alice in chains and Slayer for example) but have turned them around and made his own trademark on those parts and made new cool songs out of them. The songs I'm referring to are Dead simple, Courtyard and Barrels o fun. The slightly re-made Wolfenstein songs in the hidden maps are also cool.
- "One of the best gaming soundtracks ever!" (by GoldenEagle1476, 31 Jan 2012) [10/10]
Definitely one of the best gaming soundtracks I've ever heard, it completely sums up what Doom is about and sets the pace for the whole game. It's equal parts creepy and relaxing, and it and the game both hold up today.

Info from crumby2:
I have renamed every track (with the official titles) and put them in
order of appearance. I think it is prettier like this.. and more
pleasing when listening.
