    Doom Eternal on Xbox One manages to be bigger, bloodier and somehow better than its predecessor. iD have built on their successful comeback from 2016, retaining what makes Doom great, whilst also subtly adding to it. Simply put, It’s the first must buy Xbox One game of 2020.

    To call DOOM Eternal anything other than phenomenal would be blasphemous. It makes DOOM 2016 feel like a trial run – a warm up to the main event, and that's what a sequel should do.

    DOOM is back, and it’s just as good as we’d all hoped. The action is fast, brutal and unforgiving. The soundtrack and pacing are perfect. You know when that music starts, it’s time to lock and load and get ready to fight. The campaign is long and always keeps you on your toes. It’s one of the most satisfying first person shooters I have played in quite some time. There is so much more to say about DOOM Eternal, but I’d rather save it and let you enjoy the blood and gore.

    I can’t emphasize how much fun Doom Eternal is to play and that's what really counts.

    DOOM Eternal takes the hugely solid foundations laid down in 2016's excellent franchise reboot and adds more of absolutely everything. This is a bigger, faster, funnier, more relentless and endlessly replayable game than its predecessor and it's one that gives you a ton more variety in how you go about dishing out death to the hordes of hell that await you across its meaty single player campaign. It looks stunning, plays beautifully and is quite simply one of the most strategic, intense and hugely satisfying first-person shooters we've ever played.

    A great, if disjointed, continuation of the demon killing franchise. Visually stunning, tight controls and satisfying combat make for an exciting and enjoyable experience.

    Doom Eternal is a smart iteration of what came before it that occasionally stumbles under its own desire to evolve.

Any frustration this game can sometimes provide is simply a product of the player not understanding the game's mechanics and trying to go in guns blazing without thinking. Expand

    The gameplay is solid, the lore is pretty deep for a doom game, the bosses are fun, but some later game combat arenas came feel very unfair.

    Tiens, c’est cool, Doom Eternal est tombé dans le Game Pass… mais en l’occurrence, c’est ici un peu mal fait puisque par défaut, on téléchargeTiens, c’est cool, Doom Eternal est tombé dans le Game Pass… mais en l’occurrence, c’est ici un peu mal fait puisque par défaut, on télécharge le « Battle Mode » à savoir la foire au multi à kévins dont on a rien à carrer… il faut ajouter la campagne solo mais heureusement, ça ne fait que… 10 mo ! après les 54 Go, une paille !

    Mais bon, juste après les logos et avertissement syndicaux inzappables (que c’est chiant) voilà-t-y pas qu’au lieu du menu du jeu, on a devant soi une saloperie d’écran qui demande de se connecter à ou de créer un compte Bethesda ! impossible de le zapper, il veut que tu t’attaches à un compte Bethesda ! tu le crois, ça ?… mais j’ai trouvé la parade (je suis pas un con) il suffit de couper Internet et… ça marche normalement. Putain. Ensuite, on peut se reconnecter au XBL, une fois dans le jeu bien sûr.

    Et une fois le jeu commencé (la campagne) on se rend vite compte à quel point cette suite du Doom rebooté de 2016, c’est toujours de la merde. Une merde éternelle ! c’est même pire qu’avant puisque c’est encore un peu plus une saloperie de jeu de plateformes ! il faut sauter, double-sauter comme dans dans un Mariol de chez Nintendaube, tu le crois, ça ?

    Et pour le reste, bah c’est la même merde que Doom 2016 évidemment : c’est rapide, trop rapide, peu maniable à la manette et très confus : toujours un bordel extrême lors des affrontements, tout pour s’afficher, se pavaner avec ses effets ultra-gores qui n’amuseront que les adolescents un peu justes ou les adulescents à tendance Rain Man. La jouabilité est répétitive et oblige au corps-à-corps sans arrêt, car on manque de munitions… sans arrêt. Où est l’amusement là-dedans ?

    Par ailleurs, comme précédemment, on cherche son chemin, où sauter et double-sauter (saute Mariodoom, saute !) dans ce qui n’est qu’un jeu de pistes où l’on doit encore trouver les clés jaunes et rouges. Et ainsi de suite. Qu’est-ce qu’on se fait chier là-dedans, c’est incroyable ! c’est vraiment à chier par terre, ce Doom ! va voir dans le broyeur si j’y suis, Doom Eternal de mes deux !
