    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.
  7. 50
    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.

DOOM is probably the best FPS I have played since the 90s. It looks and runs great, the gameplay is fast and brutal, and the value here is huge! It took me 12 hours to beat the campaign, but the game also has a very fun multiplayer mode and a UGC tool called SnapMap, which makes DOOM's replay value literally infinite! Go get it you fools! I wil see you in Hell :) Expand

    I've been anticipating this game for years, since I'm a huge Doom fan. The results were not disappointing. Could it have been better and haveI've been anticipating this game for years, since I'm a huge Doom fan. The results were not disappointing. Could it have been better and have the potential to be the perfect Doom game? Perhaps...

    The multiplayer was great, but the loadouts limited itself from becoming an incredible arena multiplayer game, (since everyone is now sick of CoD). I love the fact that you can use the demons in multiplayer. It makes the multiplayer a lot more intense and unique, but just like everyone else who complained about the beta, the demons are overpowered. Here is an example: The Revenant is actually fair to fight if your out in an open area, but if your running through a hallway and it pops out of nowhere and takes one shot at you.. you're dead. How is that even remotely fair? But as I said before, for the long run, multiplayer great. It still feels like a classic arena shooter with new perks added. It's brutal, fast, and fun!

    The campaign was beyond amazing! The game play honestly exceeded my expectations, it's so much fun! Now Doom (for the most part) is all about metal music and fast pace action with blood and gore flying in the air. The game does an amazing job delivering that, but it's also about being terrifying, and the game doesn't deliver that. The original game was fast pace and intense, but was also terrifying and disturbing. The new Doom isn't scary at all, but I'd rather have all out intense action over survival horror (we're looking at you Doom 3). That's honestly my only complaint with the campaign, I'm extremely satisfied with it. It feels like the original Doom, and yet feels like a FPS that no one has ever played before.

    Snap map is a great perk added to the game, but it wasn't as good as Id software said it was. It's very easy to use and you can customize the logic of the game, which I absolutely love about it! Only real complaint is that all the map structures are only UAC based, not hell and mars based. Wish you would've been able to create geographical features for the mars surface and would have hell themed structures. (It's kind of unfair that I'm criticizing this, since I've only created one map and there are like only two games that actually have this feature. But I felt like I had to throw in my two cents into this.)

    Here's the summery of the review

    Pros +
    Fast-pace and brutal game play
    Glory kills are the cherry on top of the fantastic game play
    Enemies look awesome and fight brutally
    Boss fights are surprisingly great
    No cut scene bull crap, and yet tells a really neat story
    Mission secrets
    Beautiful graphics
    UAC and Hell textures look classic and goregeous
    Multiplayer game play is an arena shooter throw back
    Multiplayer modes are fun and unique
    Multiplayer Demons are fun to play as
    Awesome slection of weapons for campaign and multiplayer
    Snapmap is very easy to use
    Change logics in Snapmap
    Huge catalog of options in Snapmap

    Cons -
    Multiplayer loadouts
    Demons are overpowered in multiplayer
    Not as scary as previous Doom games
    Soundtrack sounds more electronic than metal
    No geometric editing in Snapmap
    No hell themed structures in Snapmap

    I know it sounds like I'm hating on a lot of things in this game, but I'm not at all, I'm just picking out every single flaw I found in the game to show you guys what you possibly wouldn't like about the game. The game is absolutely amazing! It's the game I've always wanted, the Doom I've always wanted! If you're a Doom fan, this is a must-buy. If you want to try out a new, and very different kind of game, highly recommend this. If you're sick of all the CoD games, please get this!

    It has one of the best story modes that I have ever playd. The multiplayer is pretty good, but the matching system isn't the best.

    que en resumen la inteligencia de los demonios y su poco versatilidad para moverse los hace faciles de matar, por ese detalle se pierde la inmersion bastante, en un momento parece que estuviera en el infierno y en el otro en kindergarden.

    If you're on the fence about this game, don't be! I'd never played a Doom game before and am officially a fan!

    I was originally hesitant because there didn't appear to be any story and I'm typically of the camp that if the game doesn't have a story then it's not worth my time & gameplay looked repetitive in the sense "go to this area, clear out enemies....now do the same over here"

    Doom focuses so much on gameplay, level design & atmosphere that you almost don't notice that the story is minimal and you are just going from area to area introducing demons to your shotgun. They do this with fast, frenzied gunplay & challenging the way you approach combat. Each section of the game gives you "challenges" which task you to take out enemies a certain way or explore your surroundings in order to gain points for upgrading your armor & guns.

    This game is a breath of fresh air! Regenerating health? Nope. Reloading...yeah no! But finding yourself in pinch with little to no ammo as a Hell Knight bears down on you only to be cut down by your chainsaw so that he spills ammo to keep you in the fight just that much longer....oh hell yes!
