It does look great, very old-school and stripped back gameplay-wise but looks like it does the thing you want a DOOM game to do and does it well (shooting demons in the face). Wolfenstein showed you can update a classic shooter in a cool way, so very hopeful for DOOM.

Been playing the Beta on PS4. Very reminiscent of old-style shooters such as Timesplitters or the Left 4 Dead series. Absolute carnage! Stunning graphics as well, could be a day one purchase.

Cheers

Funnily enough I was super hyped for this until I played the Beta. Not impressed as the controls seem very loose and I'm not convinced about game balance when you can level up your character for add ons.

Will keep an eye out for reviews but I think this'll be mainly for the story mode.
Hmm, just pretend I wrote something witty eh?

My Son has this.
Whilst I appreciate the graphics the game play is rather shite imo.

Stunning game! I would advise playing the Ultraviolence (Hard) setting on the first play through. It's insanely good!

Cheers

It looks good, except for the apparent emphasis on canned melee attack animations - the sort of thing that really bugs me about modern games.

My boy beat this, on the hardest level, inside a week. He has now abandoned it for...Doom 2.

So tempted to get this... but I will wait until the New Year to keep my resolution to buy no new games in 2016.

There was an update the other day. Two new game modes and weapon fixes for Multiplayer, and a load of new stuff for the snap map editor!

Stunning game, can't recommend it enough!

Cheers
