    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

    I've never really been a massive fan of the Doom games; In fact, this is the first one I've ever played. And if the other games are anythingI've never really been a massive fan of the Doom games; In fact, this is the first one I've ever played. And if the other games are anything like this one, I'm upset that I didn't pick them up before today.

    Doom is fun. Simply put. At it's core is fast paced combat, strong game play mechanics, and the simple goal of murdering demons before they murder you. The story really falls by the wayside, but that doesn't matter, as it's the shooting and the bloody, visceral combat that's the main draw here. You kill your demonic foes in numerous ways, from close range shot gun blasts, to chainsawing them in half and getting rewarded with more ammo for your many, many guns. There's no reloading, as well - which aids in the flow of combat, allowing you to keep a fast pace as you zip around the large, open arenas, occasionally preforming a glory kill on a hapless hell spawn in order to get your health back up. Coupled with this, there's a large amount of upgrades to help bolster you on your mission; from weapon upgrades, to upgrades for your suit (some, such as the one making you immune to explosive barrels, are somewhat more useful than others), to runes gained from completing challenge arenas. All of it serves to make the game more fun, and a worthwhile venture at any rate.

    Can't recommend highly enough.

    The secrets are neat, like original doom secrets. The multiplayer is expansive, and snapmap is one of the best level editors for console.

    The game is damn fun. And immersive. Doom (2016) makes doom 3 look really quite poor.

    *engage epic rock music* This game is awesome. I have never been a big fan of the original Doom games, but this knocks it out of the park. I*engage epic rock music* This game is awesome. I have never been a big fan of the original Doom games, but this knocks it out of the park. I don't have much to say about it, so I'll just sum up all of what makes this game awesome. Story: DOOM DOESN'T NEED ONE!!!!! Graphics: Pretty much just orange and grey, but WHO CARES?! And Gameplay: You can literally rip demons in half with your bare hands. I have nothing else to say. 9/10. Expand

    This is one of the most brutal games I have ever played, and I freaking adored it.
    Doom is one of the most satisfying campaigns I have ever experienced,
    the story is actually good with some comedic moments where there is an interesting lore, but doom doesn't care, he just want to kill demons which makes some funny moments.
    The gameplay is pure perfection for what it is, the weapons are all usefull, the bosses are some of the best I experienced last year and the executions are bloody perfect.

    I have only two problems with this game, the multiplayer sucks and sometimes the level can feel the same but other than that, this is a must have.
