    Doom is excellent

    Doom is excellent. Im not gonna lie here, my initial expectations were low, I expected a slow pace modern wannabe shooter consistent with the quality of games ID put up recently. I was blown away, I am a massive fan of the series and saw that this doom was everything I wanted. It is fast-paced, gore filled fun that only doom can deliver. My original guess was that it was going to pander to console players by making it slower ( I thought this after I saw the scroll wheel that slowed down game play.) It has been a long while since I have seen a shooter with intelligent map design, design which rewards players for playing the game at a faster pace, in fact I rarely found myself stopping in between combat, if at all. There is secrets galore in this game to. Not only that but the game itself is absolutely beautiful. From the large bosses to the small imps for pistol fodder every part of the game does not lack in design, This game reinvigorated my faith in ID. The online has obviously improved since the beta (Its great, i didn't get the chance to play the beta but I heard complaints) With a larger selections of weapons. In fact I see so many modding possibilities for the multiplayer on PC. After playing leagues and leagues of modern shooters this is the most refreshing multiplayer I have played in a while and will suck in hours and hours of my time I haven't really played around with snap map yet, but Ill be looking forward to it!. Anyway this reinvigorated the franchise and will forever be known as a classic, Amazing job id, i look forward for more

    This is a fun revisit to the things that made the original Doom so much fun---action! From the moment you "wake up" you're fighting demons, and it doesn't let up until the end. You pretty much have to spend every second moving, shooting, jumping or finding health (which is fairly scarce, even on the normal setting). It doesn't get bogged down by the story--there is one, and all the clues are there if you want to know more, but it's mostly runnin' and gunnin', just like the original Doom. There are a couple of new mechanics---mostly the health off of fallen' monsters and "glory kill' mechanics--that add new a few fun new twists. If you liked that game you'll like this one, just make sure your machine can play it--it looks great and plays smooth if your machine has the specs.

    Reviving the FPS Genre

    Doom is a FPS for people tired of spending half their gameplay sitting around waiting for health to regen or being limited to two weapons at time. The main campaign is a well paced rampage through demons ramping up the challenge as well as your arsenal and abilities with each level. The story gets in the way a few points but mostly the game is aware of what you're here for and doesn't try to give you lectures on the economic impact of your mass destruction. Now things aren't entirely old school, the game does have close range execution kills but they add a good risk/reward mechanic as they provide health pickups. There's also a perk like system later on that provides some additional customization to your abilities. Multiplayer offers a lot of options from fairly standard competitive modes with loadouts to player-made co-op maps.

    Still waiting to play.

    Well, I would LOVE to write a review and tell you how awesome DOOM is and how I've been playing it, but I haven't actually been able to play it yet. I'm still download nearly 50gigs of the game that, for some unforeseeable reason, was not included with the disk I purchased. I don't usually down-rate something based on outside issues, but in this case, the fact that Bethseda didn't actually include the game ON the disks and my meager internet connection is having a conniption trying to download it, I can't recommend this to anyone that lives outside of any town. No, I'm not on dialup, but I don't have that massively fast super net that everyone else has, so I have to sit and wait until it finishes download. I do hope I don't have to reinstall it after I get it done...

    Old Made Anew Again

    Perhaps I'm beginning to sound a bit like a dinosaur, but I did actually have my taste of old-school first person shooters on PC. While I personally preferred Quake during the sudden growth of DOOM-clones, I'm glad to have gotten a taste of what happens when people want to make old anew again. This reboot is fast, gory, and unwaveringly fluid. It's how PC first person shooting is meant to be, and while its multiplayer finds some jarring imbalance, its map editor doesn't quite find prominence, and its textures are lacking, I not only recommend this purchase on PC but also to anyone who forgot or doesn't know what playing first person shooters used to be like. For reference, just imagine yourself sprinting at all times with infinite stamina and all of your guns have a "no reload" cheat active.

    great update to the Doom series, but....

    I'm an old school Doom player going back to the original. This is a refreshing update some 10 years after Doom 3. Great graphics and game play. Beware: check the minimum system requirements, you need a fire breathing video card to work with this. My beef with the game comes in at the end of level 9 where you need to take down a boss demon, virtually impossible even on easy level. I have put 4 hours into this one battle and am giving up on the game. I've read all the tips and watched the video how to do it but I don't have the fire power to beat him. This just seems like stupid product design, FYI they did the same thing in Doom 3 - impossible levels on easy play. Makes no business sense at all.

    Doom like theme but not doom

    Doom has great story, graphics, gameplay. Some areas it could improve on is the sounds and the variety of the guns. In the original Doom the sounds were so good you imagination could fill in how bad the creature was. The sound of your gun going off would make it feel powerful. The guns were also so distinct that each one felt like it was a needed tool to defeat the bad things. In this Doom the main pistol's sound is pew pew and the game could be defeated with any gun except the pistol. Overall still a great successor the Doom franchisee. I would recommend this game to anyone who likes games, shooters, or the Doom franchise.

    Hectic Campaign, Fun Multiplayer

    The campaign is an insane ride, while the multiplayer is a blast to play. I played roughly an hour of the campaign on release day, and two hours of the multiplayer PvP. I'm not one to play a game's multiplayer mode more than the campaign, but I've done just that with this title. There isn't a large selection of maps in the multiplayer, but every round you play earns you all kinds of rewards like skins, unlocked weapons and demons, etc. I'm hoping the season pass adds a bit more of what fans were initially expecting when it comes to maps and demons, but I am not complaining. The game lives up to every expectation I had.
