    It ticks off every item on a list of things a modern Doom should have, including several items you didn't even know were on the list in the first place. They may not make shooters like this anymore, but the runaway success of this game serves as long overdue proof that they really should.

    For fans of single-player FPS campaigns DOOM is a juggernaut, and some of the most fun I’ve had in gaming for years. It’s never going to grab you with an engrossing plot of spectacular linear set pieces, but the flawless combat ensures DOOM just never lets up.

    Doom proves that id can still surprise, and even better, can make good games. Excellent single player gets a tad repetitive towards the end, but it really does not matter. Multiplayer is boring as Hell. [June/July 2016]

    The first half of the game takes place in believable, but not exemplary colonial buildings on Mars. Only when Marine gets to Hell does the game really get into gear: the number and strength of opponents begins to match Marine’s phenomenal murdering skills, and Doom finally transforms into a fierce, high-speed shooter that’s all about holding your own in the middle of a demon’s horde and making sudden comebacks when all seems lost. And yet, even in Hell the game manages to give you breathers to explore and look for secrets. [Issue#209, p.52]

    Doom manages to challenge the conventions of the first-person shooter genre by going back to its roots. It will have you breathing heavily, cursing in frustration, and screaming in triumph. The multiplayer is a bit of a letdown, but the campaign is absolutely glorious.

    A tribute to Doom that leaps to great heights, but fails to fully stick the landing. [Issue#252, p.60]

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 Expand

I enjoy it on my 32" inch monitor 1440p and it is beautifull. Very good sequel to the DOOM series. I was trying to play it 2 years ago on a 19"in monitor and 560ti graphic card, and I did not enojoy it at all, I was disapointed. But now, on a 32" inch and 1070 graphics card, this game really show its strengts, it is really beautifull fluent high resolution engine. It is one of the very rare kind of games, that gets better with age. One advice : set your FOV (field of view) to some higher value, I play it on 120, by default it is 90. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This looks and feels like a real successor to the 23-year-old Doom. Forget Doom 3 and its rewriting the rule book, this game goes back to basics and does it in style.

    The core gameplay is exactly the same as it was in the original - large, rambling maps chopped up into different areas, with coloured keycards and switches (along with "rip the arm off some guy" type updates - essentially, following the Doom Bible from 1992!)

    All the weapons you'd expect are there and although there are all sorts of extra customisation options you don't have to use them; you can use number buttons to select the weapons (5 is still the rocket launcher, just as it was in the original) and unlike the multiplayer mode you can carry several at once.

    The action is fast, it's furious and as gory as ever (gibbing enemies never looked so good). There have been some mechanic changes (as in the chainsaw uses fuel and grants ammo when you chainsaw a monster to death), but the overall look and feel is unmistakeably Doom.

    As someone who played the original and Doom 2 to death as a teenager, words can't explain how delighted I am to see the game brought bang up-to-date. As an added bonus, after pulling a certain lever I found a direct passageway back to a (somewhat clunky) chunk of the original Doom... complete with bitmap pickup icons and the original soundtrack, as played on a decent MIDI card. Yes, the textures were wonky, there were no lighting effects (it's darned hard to do with modern engines, the Doom engine was much simpler) but wow, it was nice to see. It also carries on the tradition from Doom 2, which had a Wolfenstein 3D level in it...

    The deathmatch side of things is expanded greatly from the beta and the matchmaking system is fair - if you get pummelled and everyone's up for another match, it'll swap players around to make things more equal. It feels quite cut-down compared to the single-player mode, what with the loadouts and all, but it's not a bad game - feels more like Quake 3 than the original Doom, however.

    I'd say this is a really, really good single-player shooter - it's a true sequel to one of the best-loved PC games of all time. The deathmatch side of things isn't quite as good, IMO, but I bought this game for the single-player game. Several hours in, I'm not disappointed.

Не знаю, что бы я говорил, поиграв я в Uncharted 4, но учитывая, что этого я не делал, игрой года для меня станет именно DOOM! Здесь вам и толпы врагов, и море безумия, и много забаввных шуточек на протяжении сюжета, и собирательство, и хороший мультиплеер, и куча экшена, и литры крови, и еще много всего, всего, всего, чего сейчас не хватает ни одному шутеру. Даже при учете, что игра, по большей степени, является "коридорной", это не мешает ей затянуть вас на еще парочку часов геймплея. Разработчики, вы просто молодцы! Я получил от игры столько, сколько и хотел получить и даже больше!
    Отличная графика и музыкальное сопровождение будут вас сопровождать на протяжении всего геймплея и это действительно круто! Отдельное спасибо разработчикам за полную локализацию игры в России, и что вы не просто отделались субтитрами, а добавили полноценную озвучку, что позволило мне не чувствовать себя в роли гражданина страны третьего мира. Что удивительно, сюжет в игре тоже есть (почему-то у меня DOOM никак не ассоциируется с сюжетом) и он вполне неплохо заходит. Собирательство тоже на неплохом уровне, порадовали куклы, которые очень напомнили пипбоев из FallOut, мне даже кажется, что это как-то связано! Финальные боссы просто шикарны, все трое! В общем, DOOM зарядил меня нереальной энергией и подарил мне очень много эмоций и впечатлений. Как по мне, так это лучший шутер последнего десятилетия, очень удачный, очень красивый и очень очень! Обязательно буду продолжать в него играть и рекомендую это сделать всем любителям шутеров, вы ни коим образом не пожалеете!

    Моя оценка игре: 9,5/10, дополнительные пол балла приберегу на вторую часть игры! Наслаждайтесь, господа! Кстати, не удивлюсь, если DOOM станет шутером года, рядом с ним, по личным ощущениям, только Gears of War 4.

    The gunplay is excellent and the gameplay in general is very funny, but the plataformeo does not work and the game can be quite repetitive.
    Executions ... More animations are needed. They become very repetitive.

I don't like it. It doesn't have the spirit of Doom. Even Doom 3 is better than this kind of bloody **** Music is a reskin of Doom one.

    Eh, eh, I'm a Doom Slayer in a suit and don't have to use berserk packs to dumbly tear stupid demons.
    Eh, eh, lets do some double jumping...
    I don't want to play by a powerful cool guy, I just want to be human. Like Doom Guy, like Ash Jay Williams. I want a new Hell on Earth that it was meant to be. Not the **** UAC bases.
