    Doom Eternal has a lot in common with Doom 2. Both could never dream of matching the surprise or legacy of their immediate predecessor, but they each confidently expand on the historic foundations those games set. Using fast-paced first-person shooting as the framework, each sequel has wildly improved level design, a wider selection of demons to massacre, and a larger arsenal that come together to refine its core identity in the smartest, most respectful ways possible. However, Eternal is more ambitious than its 1994 counterpart, pushing even further and creating one of the best first-person shooters ever made in the process. The Doom Slayer has faced many nightmarish opponents and toppled them all, yet his greatest victory might be slaying the impossibly high expectations set by his genre-defining precursors.

    Doom Eternal is not only a superb shooter, but carries the DNA of some of the best works by Id Software, and takes the studio back to the good old days of the 90s.

    DOOM Eternal is an example of how to make a great sequel. Doesn't break with the 2016 game and allows us to embody a character that is a demon killer. It makes us feel powerful and is one of the most brutal games we've enjoyed in a long time.

    DOOM Eternal is simply the best game of the IP as it shows an unmatched mastery of the Fast-FPS genre from id Software. The pure uncut cocaine of shooters.

    A fantastic game, taking all of the elements which made DOOM 2016 such a surprisingly enjoyable reboot of the franchise and implementing dozens of new concepts in a way which makes the entire experience feel fresh all over again. There is more of everything in DOOM Eternal than players could have asked for, but the lack of a classic deathmatch and Snap Map functionality, something which was such an integral and entertaining part of DOOM 2016's community, makes it impossible to give the game a perfect score.

    DOOM Eternal exceeded expectations, both where difficulty and enjoyment are concerned, and while not without its faults, it feels like a must-play game for FPS players. It knows exactly how hard it is but doesn’t shame players for choosing whatever difficulty they want, and with how many collectibles there are to amass, it offers a surprising degree of replayability.

    There’s something primal and thrilling to id Software’s further embrace of video-gamey conventions.

    Holy ****ING **** this game is metal. Sorry I don't review much but when I do I try to come off professional or proper but my god this game isHoly ****ING **** this game is metal. Sorry I don't review much but when I do I try to come off professional or proper but my god this game is so metal I don't even care. I like to break down my review or point out major aspects of the game into sections to make it flow but not for this. Why? Because Doom Eternal don't need to be broken down. This is Doom (2016) turned up to 11. The graphics are amazing and more like a metal acid trip than the total recall mars aesthetic we had before. The guns feel more punchy and so do the demons. The sections between fights are more refined and feel like it flows better and quicker than just jumping on boxes. And the glory kills are more brutal. And dear baby satan the music. Dear sweet baby satan that g*****m music is so good. The only reason this isn't a 10 are minor but fair nitpicks. The purple goop is annoying. F*** THE MARAUDER. A tad too much platforming in the later half (it still isn't TOO much but it felt kinda tedious at least to me) and that's about it.

    Everything else from the murder spree you go on to all the fun collectables and cheats you get. Yes cheats that you collect as well as cosmetics. For FREE. Take note EA and Ubisoft. And the multiplayer is fun but not the star. Look Bethesda may have published this but it feels more ID than Bethesda here and if you have second thoughts because of Bethesda don't worry as even without DLC this is a complete package and I felt like money well spent.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. When you have to look up on Youtube how to get around clunky game mechanics, your game is functionally broken. Is the game good? Hell yeah! But it does have it's share of mechanics that are just frustratingly broken that prevent you from progressing. After the first one, it was no big deal. But now that I am running into number two, this is a problem. This should not be in a game like this. The first one was the mechanic referred to by some as "monkey bars". You had to jump up two of them in a row on the outside of a building and then boost across to the other side, grab a wall and then boost back. I spent dozens of times trying to just go around the corner because I just didn't see the wall where you can cling on the other side. Ok, I thought. No big deal. Annoying, but OK I didn't see it. Now the second one happened. It was in the Taras Nabad pool where you can't melee to break the wall, but you have to underwater dash or something. I tried it a few dozen times to look it up on Youtube and was once again very frustrated and annoyed that my progression was being held back because the game designers made some stupid decisions. Yes, Bethesda, there were some stupid decisions made here. And it annoyed me so bad that I shut the game off and I'm not playing it.

    Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad game. Just be prepared to get frustrated and annoyed at some moments with clunky game mechanics that will prevent progressing in the game. Why, Bethesda, why?

    Honestly, this game is not as good as Doom 2016: a statement which is surprising to myself as well!
    There is something wrong with the sound!

    There is something wrong with the sound! The story is just boring! And the gameplay is not as fast pace as that of Doom 2016.

    Aside from the graphics from 10 years ago the kernel based anti cheat that basically now allows them to take over and track everything you doAside from the graphics from 10 years ago the kernel based anti cheat that basically now allows them to take over and track everything you do on your pc is such a invasion of privacy. Bethesda has to be the worst company when it comes to making sound decisions. Expand
