    Doom Review

    Hello everyone. I just wanted to talk about my experience with this game, Doom. It was given a lot of hate and flak because of it's beta for many reasons. We will be discussing the entire game and what are some pros and cons it has. Campaign (No Spoilers) - (Story) The campaign feels great and has a very nice story that isn't too indepth but it is still really nice to follow, listen and play. Doom was also never about the campaign (story wise) and more about being a unstoppable marine that destroy all the Demons to save Earth and Mars. And just like the older games, it is centered on a silent protagonist that's main objective is to stop Demons from taking over by obliterating everything in his path. (Gameplay) To perfectly describe this game would be to call it a run and gun type of game because you never stop moving. The action is so fast paced that if you don't move at all, you are more than likely dead. The Demons all have different ways of defeating them and you have to use that to your advantage especially if you are doing one of the harder difficulties. (Difficulty) The difficult is fairly descent when you get to around 25% of the way through the game. In the beginning, it is beyond easy because you are fighting low level Demons and some of them can be one shot. Unless you are standing still in the beginning of the game, it shouldn't be hard and it will be very hard for the Demons to kill you or even scratch you. The difficulty also scales pretty well. On my first time through the campaign, I played on the hardest difficulty that I could and had a blast but when I got to certain parts of the game like a boss, I had a little bit of difficulty until I figured out their movesets. Multiplayer (Gameplay) It is pretty good besides for the phantom hitboxes of the melee that happen a lot. Other than that though, it is a good addition to the game and is more of just the topping and not anything major unlike the campaign or snapmap (which we will talk about a little bit later). (Connection) I cannot judge on this very well because my internet just loves to cut in and out every so often but personally, it is either that it is lagging or stable. Multiplayer is still just the topping for this game though. The two major things are campaign and snapmap as I said before. Snapmap (Gameplay) I don't even know where to begin. Someone literally made a farming game in this. A farming game in a FPS. I actually played it because I thought the person that made it was just naming it, "Farming Simulator" and it wasn't going to be (I wasted 30 minutes doing it and I still can't believe that it is real). Also, someone else made an entire RPG game inside of it with leveling, a good size map and money system that was a blast to play. So overall, I don't think there is anything that you cannot build if you wanted to in this. (Building) It is basically Halo's forge but ten times better to use. Personally, I find it harder to use but that is my own opinion so please use your own opinion on this part. Overall if you enjoy building maps for other people to play and even for yourself to play, you will definitely enjoy this. (Compatibility) I just have to add that both PC and console players will be able to play on all created maps that either of them have made. (Customization) The armor customization is very well done. You can customize everything from your helmet to what your armor looks like underneath, base armor. You get armor just by playing the game and there is a wide varieties of armor from regular soldier (UAC) armor to demonic armor to angelic (Templar) armor. I hope you found this review useful and hope I will find you on Doom. Vesius

    All doom and gloom for a new generation.

    I wasn't really sure about this game at first. It was a good departure from the action-survival-horror setting of Doom 3, which I felt was pretty darn close to being a first-person version of Dead Space. I could definitely see some of the influences it had on the DS development team. It is worth noting that Dead Space is my favorite game of all time, or at least for now. So, back to this new Doom, when I get it up and going it feels good, looks okay, but something is off - the entire drive of the game seemed to be focused more towards speed and momentum of murder, rather than the atmosphere and scares that wait around the corner. Where Doom 3 had me planning my next move and eagerly waiting for a demon pop out and scare the heavens out of me, this new doom has me stomping mud-holes in butts and stalking down demons like a hound on the hunt. This restructuring of the pacing threw me off, but I stuck with it and odin-almighty am I glad I did. This game is just pure fun, and overly addicting at times. Each level is a descent closer to hades and the further you get, the more mud-holes you'll be stomping - that's assuming you have the grit and strategy it takes to keep going. The game really doesn't like it when you are just standing around in battle and you will die for it. Fortunately, the levels provide you with some pretty good battle grounds, allowing you to move around and keep the kills rolling in without much issue (provided you have your game on.) I highly recommend this to fans of the old and new - this game is just pure fun.

    Doom is a fresh breath of demon scented air

    Doom isn't a game that was on my radar at all. My multi-player time was filled with hours of destiny and overwatch was around the corner. Then I heard how fun the campaign was and why. I enjoy tactical combat and strategic use of cover, etc, but it's plenty well represented in the medium. Doom isn't about that. The system actually rewards you for throwing caution to the wind and getting personal with enemies as quickly as possible. Most of the weapons seem to be geared towards short to medium range combat as well. It makes combat genuinely satisfying instead of a chore, and you are usually glad to encounter a fresh pack of enemies. It isn't a breeze though. If you aren't a little methodical in your violence or if you get too confident, you aren't tanky enough to just take anything to the face. You will die, and fast. The level design and platforming is generally solid, providing plenty of exploration, but not so much as to hurt the flow of action. Finding the secrets can be a chore at times, pretty satisfying at others. They are definitely well hidden. The in game map is reminiscent of metroid. I don't use it very well, but I think that is just my issue. I spent no more than 45 minutes with the multiplayer. It seemed serviceable, but it wasn't the sort of feel and control that I prefer. I didn't purchase the game for this feature at all though, so I wasn't disappointed. Others may get tons of enjoyment out of it. Buy doom. Put on good headphones. Level up your shotgun.

    Classic gameplay updated to current standards

    Doom successfully merges the classic run and gun gameplay with current styles of FPS standards. It's slightly retro in the Doom feel of the game but stays so current with it's gore and weapons. It's a breath of fresh air in the scope of FPS and actually is one of the best FPS currently on the market. The gameplay can be somewhat mindless at times but conserving ammo and knowing when to perform close gore kills as opposed to killing foes with your weapon comes with playing the game for hours and learning to strategize. The game throws tons of foes mixed in with more powerful foes at you which produces an amazing feeling of speed. As you go further in the game you can upgrade not only your weapons but your abilities leading to you becoming more agile, which is great considering that there is platforming in this game as well. The music is pulsating and the graphics showcase that this generation has not capped out and still can create spectacle. The detail is rich , which shows Mars as being chaotic as well as a beauty to behold in a gory universe. The game also features many secrets and rooms created using classic Doom elements merged with current enemies in certain areas. As far as gameplay goes this is the most complete Doom game in years. For anyone that is a fan of the series or newcomers alike, this game has to be in your collection.

    It's DOOM baby!

    I've played DOOM since the very first release and have loved it each time minus the last release. I was mildly disappointed with DOOM 3 as it felt more like a tech demo visual showcase on rails. I need the 'feeling' of freedom even when I don't actually have it in a linear game. DOOM 4 gives me that freedom, with large open spaces for battles the hordes of (BB censored this word?) army. You can explore to find all the secrets. The guns all have unique challenges to level them up. There are mini kill'em all games with rewards too. I absolutely love the amazing character designs. It's so 2099 and yet still looks faithful to the original in a perfect blend of compromise. The Cyberdemon is my favorite model of the year, hands down. Come out with a huge statue or toy and I'm buying it day one. Everything about this game feels fresh and yet stays true to the series. It's casual yet can be difficult too. It's a sleeper hit of the year and I think you should play it and be as surprised as I was. Now if you figure out how to beat the last boss, let me know, because I surely haven't been able to even after lowering the difficulty.

    I picked up this game without having played any of the other DOOM games, yet knowing more or less what I was getting into. The campaign was nice and lengthy (at least 12 hours), with enough challenge to keep me interested, yet not so challenging that I wanted to throw my controller against the wall. It was incredibly violent, fast paced, and set to metal music. And that was exactly what I was in the mood for. Though I will admit there is a little too much dependency put on the theatrical kills in order to get ammo/health, I didn't mind too much. The real fault of this game is the multiplayer. It was a poor attempt at Unreal Tournament's multiplayer. After about a dozen matches, I gave up and continued on the campaign. So if you're in the mood for a great multiplayer game, try Overwatch, Destiny, or something along those lines. But if you're in the mood for a single player, high octane, gory thrill ride, this is the game for you.

    This game will have you begging for more right from the first level. Your job is to seek and destroy, that is the long and short of it. You will want to explore bits of the levels once you get through wasting the demons, monsters, and "Oh dear God what is that thing with 9 eyes and a pitch fork for a hand". But really, this game has awesome gameplay and beautiful graphics. Oh...and keep an eye out for secret locales where you play through old Doom levels. A serious amount of bang for your buck! Even has a really fun multiplayer platform. For old Doom veterans and newcomers, You will have a blast.

    Reviews that complain about lack of depth or no story crack me up. Demons. On. Mars. It shouldn't be made into something else -buy another game if you want "depth". I played original Doom once it was ported to Mac back in '94 and I have Doom3 for windows. This copy is the first time I have played Doom on a console. I die a lot, but I still have fun. My 13 year old son is much better at FPS games and plays quite a few different titles on our PS4. He was surprised by how much fun he has playing Doom. He wasn't expecting the graphics to be as good as they are and he likes the pace of the action. I'm glad I waited and bought the title on sale.

    Bethesda makes great shooters. *see Wolfenstein I don't know why it took me so long to pick up this game, but I am really glad I did. It is such a competent game, from level design with hidden areas and locked doors, to the varied enemy types and strategies with weapon combinations and abilities to level up... There is just so much to ramble on about. The controls just feel so good. And the mechanics for healing involve CQC, and you can get more ammo by chainsawing enemies in half! I don't know how it works, but I like it. :)

    Literally the best campaign in a FPS I've seen in years. Combat is fast-paced and exhilarating in the best way possible. Don't get too distracted looking at the amazing graphics or hunting down secret rooms because if you're standing still in this game you're demon fodder. Multiplayer is here too, but it's the only part of the package that disappoints as it feels generic next to the amazing single player offerings. Bottom line, if you're a fan of classic Doom and are tired of the same ol' COD-style shooters these days give this game a look.

    The 2016 revival of DOOM was a pleasant surprise for gamers across the world who had a craving for intergalactic demon slaying. The game is fast-paced, chaotic and unrelenting. You move from one arena to the next, clearing room after room of evildoers while gaining upgrades and perks along the way. Ditched are the common new-era FPS mechanics such as primary/secondary weapons, reloading and automatically regenerating health.This game is all about double jumps, weapon wheels and of course, the BFG.

    It doesn't matter if your a classic gamer who wants to see Doom brought to the new consoles or someone new to it all together, this game is awesome. Don't be skeptical about my 4 star rating, I took a star away from the launch because it had some issues. Don't worry yourself because they have been patched and you should be read to go. This game is a cross between Halo (the good ones) and Borderlands 2. If your into that, this is the game for you. It still has some cool features and worth at least checking it out.

    Finally a Doom game worth playing again and again. If you grew up playing the adware versions of Doom and grew to love the gore and action that it brought then you will love this version of Doom. Not only is the game upgraded to today's standards but they also included original levels in all of their glory, hidden secrets within each story level and fun to play once opened. At times it can become repetitive but the game itself is worth owning and playing over and over again.

    Okay, I am not good at FPS games. The game is fast paced compared to the doom I remember on my 32x and PC in the 90's. I have not gotten too far, even on the normal setting I die and get my shield drained a lot. I think it will get better once I upgrade some stuff more. I didn't know what to expect with Bethesda as the producer of it. I enjoyed Skyrim and Fallout series a lot. Doom is nothing like those 2.

    I've never played any of the previous Doom games, but this one definitely caught my interest. It's a great game. The controls feel very polished. Every level is filled with collectibles and hidden upgrades for your character. Every gun is unique and has different modifications that change how the gun works. The games main focus is its single player, but it does have standard multiplayer pvp. However I found the pvp to not be very interesting. In the end I found it to be a great fps and a fun game.

    The single player mode offers nostalgic gameplay mixed with modern enhancement bringing Doom up to date in ways that satisfy my current taste in games, yet hint at the games of my youth. The multiplayer feels like a Halo clone, which isn't bad, but isn't groundbreaking. The Snapmap mode is a lot of fun, creating your own content for others to enjoy, or enjoying that which was created by others adds a lot of replay value to the game. Overall the game is worth the investment of money and time.

    If you love COD and those types of first person shooters this might not be the game for you. This is very much a run-and-gun type game that forces you to run around the shoot at the same time. You're gonna miss, you're gonna die, but its awesome nontheless. The music is great, the story is thin but who cares when you get to use a chainsaw to wreck some havoc. It's a great time, and has loads of features to keep you busy.

    There's something to be said about sitting down for a mindless shooter and not having to wait in a lobby for 5-11 more people to join. The Doom reboot does that well. No reloading, and an upgrade system that you can take or leave - just grab a gun and start running or blasting. This isn't the game for someone that's used to massive tinkering, lots of strategy, or yelling over a headset. But if you have a spare 20 minutes and feel like zoning out, this is a great game to pick up.

    If you just want to run from one monster closet to the next this is the game for you. Especially if you don't mind fighting the same monsters over and over again. Its mindless fun. The gunplay feels high budget. There is a nice mixture of guns. The leve design is ok. You basically go into big area, monsters pop out, you are locked in, you kill monsters, locks open and you go to next big monster area. Its not rocket science, but is is fun.

    I played the original DOOM years ago on PC, hadn't played any of the other releases since. Found this game on sale for a good price so took a chance and bought it. Glad I did. High energy, action packed, gory, mindless killing monsters. Love the new graphics. The kills where you grab a monster by the mouth and rip their head in two straight off its body...AWESOME!! It's great to throw this in for some mindless, don't have to think, just kill anything that moves fun.
