    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.

    Thanks to an overwhelming campaign, long and with an excellent level design, the Doom Slayer shows the exaggerated ultraviolence we were expecting. The best production from id Software so far.

    DOOM Eternal will sit on the throne of the best FPS game for years to come. The hellish soundtrack and unforgiving fast-paced encounters will keep your adrenaline pumping and your senses sharp.

    DOOM Eternal proves now more than ever that the grandaddy of the first-person shooter genre is once again the king of them all -- and it doesn't look to be ceding the throne any time soon.

    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.

    Doom Eternal: this is a big "yes", a destructive trance to which we get attached very quickly, which offers us a biblical story revisited very interesting and gameplay of incredible nervousness. A true ode to fast-FPS, immersive, which offers, over a more than honest lifespan, smart, intense battles and a memorable and varied hell dive. An apnea from which you only come out to rest your eyes, your heart, your mind ... and catch your breath!

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

    I have gotten all the achievements but the battlemode achievements for this game and have played through multiple times now and as someone whoI have gotten all the achievements but the battlemode achievements for this game and have played through multiple times now and as someone who dose not like arcade shooters it was pretty good, not great but good it’s a hell of a lot more fun once you beat the game and unlock cheats. The game would be a 8 but I encountered a lot of bugs in my time playing nothing super game breaking but still annoying and every play session it seemed like I was encountering new bugs wether it be demons falling through floors or doom guy being pushed through walls even a hard crash, so I had to take points off for that but once those bugs are resolved it’s a 8. shoved through a wall and even a hard crash Expand

I uninstalled after I died for the 20th time trying to jump from platform to platform. Absolutely the stupidest thing I’ve ever seen. Who thought we wanted that sort of garbage?! Amateurish at best.
