    There were no doubts that Doom would play fast, look stunning, or be gory; the surprise is that Doom is as relevant, smart and self-aware as it is; merging old ideas with new ones; injecting its near-flawless shooter mechanics into a campaign that’s impeccably refined, hilariously dumb and fiendishly moreish.

    Doom is the best possible way to play, in 2016, something that was great in 1993. Unmissable.

    DOOM is hands-down one of the best reimagined and exciting FPS games this generation.

    The multiplayer aside, the true appeal to the game remains in the single-player campaign, which is how it was and should be with a DOOM title.

    Look past the lop-sided multiplayer, and Doom is still one helluva reboot. It’s a must for any modern FPS fan looking to taste the ultra-violence of yesteryear. Your Nana will hate it. [August 2016, p71]

    Combat may become a little tedious after long stretches of play, the load times are a little lengthy, multiplayer is a smudge unbalanced, and SnapMap is a so-so addition, but the adrenaline-fueled gameplay and the ample replayability featured within the campaign makes this a standout entry in the FPS genre – let alone a worthwhile resurrection of DOOM.

    People will be talking about the first two Doom games for decades more – those two games may well be remembered as true classics of the gaming medium a century down the track. This Doom won’t. This new Doom is terrible...Like the greedy organisation that unleashes hell on Mars, this is the product of exploitation; the developers at ID Software and Bethesda are playing with fire in treating a property as valuable as Doom this way.

But for me Doom did same thing to PFS as Dark Souls did to action RPGs. (In a possitive way). It is not afraid to be very challenging. At the same time is fair all the time and gives you oportunity to avoid every enemy attack.it gives you very well ballanced tools that you need to use wiselly (chainsaw, bfg, powerups, glory kills). Every death (even on harder difficulties is you mistake). And the thrill and feeling when you finish difficult fight is same as when you beat DS Boss. Expand

The game is flat out awesome. Playing on MAX setting at 1440p (ultrawide) on PC...oh man, wouldn't want it any other way. Fast, gory, and in your face action is what we have needed for DECADES! My game of the year! Expand

    I`ve just completed the single player and i`m going straight back through it to get all the collectibles and go for the hardest settingI`ve just completed the single player and i`m going straight back through it to get all the collectibles and go for the hardest setting something i reserve only for the best of the best games.

    This is a fast paced gore fest that gets you pumped as you dart about blowing the crap out of everything dodging and switching weapons using finishers to heal the game forces you to get stuck in and fight for your life. That way the game forces you to get stuck in makes it feel so fresh and the graphics and sound are top class. This is a true triple A game. The weapons and upgrade system is really well implemented and gives you so much choice and the weapons all fell really meaty.

    I recommend you play at the hardest setting that`s where it really shines go for the 100% gamer score on this one its well worth it in my opinion what a game thanks ID Software 10/10

    Я всё думал сможет ли id Software создать, что нибудь интересное после ухода Джона Кармака, своего главного генератора идей и программныхЯ всё думал сможет ли id Software создать, что нибудь интересное после ухода Джона Кармака, своего главного генератора идей и программных кодов?
    Но вот вышел DooM 2016 и я, пройдя его, понял: пусть Кармак занимается виртуальной реальностью, а кому делать игры в id Software есть и без него!
    Не скрою, что любимой игрой серии для меня был Doom 3. Атмосфера густая, гнетущая, при том это одна из немногих игр которая смогла меня, в своё время, напугать! Так, что от нового DooM много не ожидал. Но приятно ошибся!
    Игра просто ураган. Сюжета как такового в принципе нет, жаль конечно, но игра без него много не потеряла!
    Вся атмосфера игры заключалась именно в сногсшибательном геймплее, что крайне редко встречается. Просто нет времени обращать внимание на сюжет, персонажей, окружение, есть цель и ты идёшь к ней по трупам врагов разрывая их на части, вырывая глаза, наматывая кишки на автомат и т. д.
    Да, это чудо не может продолжаться долго, по этому игра не длинная. При том разработчики постоянно подкидывают новые стволы, которые можно модернизировать, и как не странно почти все они нужны и используются до конца игры. В игре очень мало патронов и бегать с одним стволом пол игры не получится. Ты 5 секунд мочишь из автомата! Всё! Пусто! Переходишь на дробаш, 3 секунды и патронташ на нуле, берёшь ракетомёт стреляешь по слабым зомбям, а по тому, что больше не из чего и тут напарываешься на автоматную обойму и.......заново! При том при всём, в игре очень клёвые добивания раненых врагов (не такие корявые как, скажем, в Gears of War), анимаций невероятное колличество. Ну штук по пять на каждого монстра!
    Темп в игре просто запредельный!
    После зачистки локации можно полазить по уровню (все уровни в игре многоэтажные, так сказать), поискать секретики.
    Теперь о врагах. Их какое то запредельное количество! Я насчитал всех монстров из 1, 2 и 3 части! Все они великолепно анимированны, выглядят просто снос башки!
    Конечно есть и боссы. Но вот здесь как то двояко. Мне не очень понравился бой с кибердемоном, тебя зажимают в какую то узкую линию, где невозможно передвигаться и маневрировать. Вправо, влево, стреляй. Так себе.
    Да, графон. Ну, id Tech 6 во всей красе!
    Я не знаю, что нужно сделать разработчикам в Doom Eternal, что бы игра была хотя бы не хуже оригинала 2016 года.
    Тех же щей погуще влей, на мой взгляд здесь будет уже маловато. Так как игра однообразна, как не крути и безсюжетна, кто бы, что не говорил. Бегать по схожим дикорациям, занимаясь тем же, чем в первой части будет уже скучновато!

    As strictly a console gamer, I've never had the option to experience Doom like many people, my dad included. Playing this game really makes meAs strictly a console gamer, I've never had the option to experience Doom like many people, my dad included. Playing this game really makes me feel as though I've missed out on years of maximum fulfillment because words really can't express just how relentlessly badass this game is. This is the apex no-holds-barred slaughter-fest, and while it seemed like a little much at first, I soon fell in love with everything about this game and couldn't put the controller down. What Bethesda has done with this re-imagining is nothing short of breathtaking. If you're looking for a heart-wrenching story, look elsewhere. If you're looking for anything anywhere between fun and amazing, look no further. Doom is just damn amazing. Expand

The graphics, sound and music areA great classic throwback to simpler times, Doom brings the fast paced adrenaline rush and never lets up. The graphics, sound and music are all top notch. Everything feels satisfying and visceral. I only had two complaints with this game, my first is that if you've played Doom in the past there aren't many new monsters on display here. My other is that the dialogue is really cheesy. That being said a lot of the enemies behave differently than before keeping the game good and challenging. I felt the difficulty and pacing were just right, and that they added a perfect amount of gameplay tweaks to make it feel fresh. As well as the right amount of upgrades and customization to keep the game interesting throughout its duration. Expand
