Instead of naming this current installment Doom 4, id Software decided to rebrand. The all caps'ed DOOM makes sense to me; this game is very much so the original rebuilt with modern technology. We were once given a glimpse of Hell on Mars through a view of 8-bit, now the pain and all its glory shines at 60fps. Changes have been made: the story has been spiced up, Glory kills now fly in your face, the double-jump now creates a ton more platforming, and upgrades of all kinds are everywhere! These changes put DOOM at odds with any current first person shooter out there.

The player, a gun, and things to kill. That has always has been DOOM, and id's legacy has been rekindled with DOOM (2016). You may argue that a good sequel's job is to iterate on past successes, to further develop mechanics, or to evolve a title to the next step in its life cycle. But DOOM (2016) isn't a departure or a reimagining. It's something much better, much more pure. DOOM (2016) is a homecoming. And boy, does it feel good to be home.

In conclusion, DOOM is the best game (and also best looking game) I’ve played this year so far and I think it has managed to deliver according to the high expectations about it. Despite its flaws and the -poorly explained- negative reception by some of the media, this is one of the biggest 2016 titles that will be hard to skip if your are able to see how glorious it is. Whether it’s due to the challenge of completing the campaign in every difficulty setting or the huge amount of hours multiplayer mode and snapmap delivers, DOOM keeps giving you a reason to come back.

Von uns gibt es eine klare Empfehlung sowohl an Oldschool Doom Fans als auch Neueinsteiger in die Serie. Gerade die vielen Schwierigkeitsgrade und Oldschool-Mechaniken, werden einige Shooter Fans an ihre Grenzen bringen.

Doom is a truly spectacular bit of ultraviolence, but it's deceptively smart in how it goes about it. It knows that all you want to do is blow stuff up in increasingly more brutal ways, leading to a single player that is probably the best FPS campaign since Wolfenstein: The New Order. While multiplayer is almost a damp squib, Snapmap allows for those with creative minds to unleash their creativity with an easy-to-learn map editor. To describe Doom in two words: Bloody brilliant!

As one Bethesda employee put it: "If you're not into violent, bloody games… DOOM's probably not a game for you". For everyone else, it's impossible not to recommend trying the title. The campaign is where DOOM really shines with its fast-paced, slick, brutally bloody and exhilarating action that mixes old-school gameplay with modern design. The multiplayer is solid if not spectacular, but that may change in time once the game's community begins to experiment with the creation tools in SnapMap. DOOM is back and it's hellishly good.

Overall DOOM is one half of an impeccable package. If it shipped without any of the multiplayer at all I'd still believe it worthy of the score below; the tepid multiplayer does little to sway it on either side. For fans of single-player FPS campaigns DOOM is a juggernaut, and some of the most fun I've had in gaming for years. It's never going to grab you with an engrossing plot of spectacular linear set pieces, but the flawless combat ensures DOOM just never lets up. Now it's just fingers crossed time that Quake can get the same treatment.

In it's full splendor, Doom is a complete package, and a very good one. What stands out above all is it's single player campaign, which is enjoyable from beginning to end, putting us in the least-likely-to-survive situations while queueing and outstanding music reminiscent of the 1993 classic. Multiplayer is not as good, but it's worth a try, especially worth trying out is the ingenious Snap-Map level creator.

Doom is a game that I did not ever expect to be remade, but it feels great. The combat is fierce, and the game's focus on combat is right on target. The guns feel solid, and the monsters feel vicious. The game looks great and plays smoothly with music and sound that is responsive and as intense as the action in front of you. The glory kills and arenas keep the blood pumping from beginning to end and you definitely earn those upgrade points. Although the load times can be a little annoying, the levels themselves play without any issues after the initial load. Overall, the game is an excellent package, bringing Doom back into modern gaming with the spirit of the old gameplay intact for long time fans and adding features that enhance the experience. If you have a PS4 and you have a passing interest in shooters, do not miss this excellent game.

Bethesda had the right idea in mind when it brought back Wolfenstein, and reviving Doom back after a prolonged spell in development hell is just as welcome. The game offers more than enough for fans to sink their teeth into, while it injects some purely-optional new ideas to keep in-step with modern games. All in all, Doom is a big, bloody gore-filled romp that is well worth experiencing.

Doom is a big, loud, visceral experience that not only impresses visually with a silky-smooth framerate and detailed texture work, but which reaches into your soul and jacks up your heartrate as it does so. Some would say that things are a little bland in terms of plot, but playing Doom for the story would be like watching a baseball match because you're a fan of diamonds. The multiplayer is playable but a little less so than you'd expect, but that's more than made up for by the campaign. It's fast, fun, violent, addictive, and highly recommended.

DOOM may become repetitious near the end and doesn't take needed risks with mission variety, but it boasts some of the finest shooting mechanics and thoughtful levels we've seen in a first-person shooter in years, pushing it to the very fringes of excellence. The campaign's a head-banging, heavy metal hoot with a surprisingly good backstory, striking visuals, and two decent multiplayer-minded modes to back it up. We'd dare say this could be the Dark Souls of its genre, gripping you with its nonconformity while unleashing its own kind of glorious Hell upon you. However, where this illustration falls apart is how you can raise Hell in return, going on the power trip of a lifetime to rip and tear through legions of demons.

In the end, Doom is a worthy successor to the original and although there was mixed reviews of Doom 3 way back in 2004, id Software should be praised on not only paying homage to the original but successfully rebooting the franchise on high-end consoles and of course the PC. Sure, it's a little old school at times but that was also the beauty of the original and if you're looking for a fast paced first person shooter than Doom is the game for you. Even though the game is quite linear, there's plenty of secrets to be found which definitely gives you incentive to either explore all the levels totally or play the game again, so Knights of Hell beware!

Both the single-player and multiplayer modes are basically throwbacks to simpler times, but are wrapped up with contemporary trimmings to create a package that fans of the original Doom games should really enjoy.

I honestly think we're looking at a spring blockbuster and a truly worthy reboot of a timeless classic. DOOM isn't for everyone. The blinding speed of play, demonic symbolism, demanding controls, and hyper-violence may discourage some from jumping in. If you can handle it, though, it really is a thrill ride. It's a brass-knuckle punch in the mouth. It's a 2-ounce shot of hard scotch from a skull chalice. It's a shot of adrenaline straight into your eyeball. It's DOOM.

Doom struggles somewhat to finish what it starts, and for a franchise that practically created what we understand as shooter multiplayer 22 years ago, its largely flavorless multiplayer is surprising. But on the whole, as a new interpretation of one of gaming's most formative, difficult to pin down cyphers, id has done a pretty great job in making something that feels familiar and fresh, and, most importantly, pretty damned fun.

The multiplayer and SnapMap portions will likely improve over time, especially with the Season Pass content, as no one will want to purchase extra content until the multiplayer smooths out. 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.

The Singleplayer is definitely the highlight. With tons of gibs, gore and shotguns to pass around, I was head over heels in love with the campaign.

Your enjoyment of Doom is going to depend greatly on the mode you're playing and your acceptance of the tweaks to the classic formula. In multiplayer, you'll have fun as long as you keep in mind that this is a blend of every other multiplayer first-person shooter instead of simply being Doom with prettier graphics. If you're playing the campaign, it feels like a welcome evolution of the series, since the classic elements meld rather well with the modern touches. If your attention is on Snapmap, then you'll find that the game has some long legs thanks to an easy-to-learn system that has already produced loads of content for solo and multiplayer situations. Either way, you're getting a complete package that celebrates the pure adrenaline-pumping action that brought so many to the genre in the first place. Doom is absolutely a worthy entry to any genre fan's library.

DOOM is a fun, fast-paced arcadey shooter. As long as you’re not looking for a deep, serious story that reflects upon the nature of humanity and hubris, and you love fast paced games with engaging gameplay, you will really enjoy DOOM’s single player campaign. Multiplayer can hold it back depending on your orientation. Great graphics and audio really make the game shine.

Doom (2016) is a great addition to an oversaturated genre thanks to an excellent campaign, a polished old-school shooting experience and a creative SnapMap mode. Admittedly, the multiplayer, while competent, pales in comparison to the single-player experience. For Doom fans and newcomers looking for a different experience from today's typical shooters, however, this game's back-to-the-basics approach is devilishly fun.

It's hard going back to the real world after a few hours with Doom. It will feel slow and mundane when compared to the experience of being an over the top, badass action hero, who destroys Hell one demon at a time; half the time with his cool arsenal of weapons, the other half with his hands! Sure, it won't create a revolution like the 1993 original, and some of its aspects (like the multiplayer) are flawed, but id Software's newest creation deserves carrying its heavy name, and is one of the few triple-A titles worthy of a full price-tag.

Doom is a fantastic single-player experience bundled with a weak multiplayer component. If you're looking for a fast, intense and fun shooter, you'll have a hard time finding anything better on the market than Doom. If you're hoping for something that carries that same intensity over to multiplayer, you'll be disappointed. Snap Map adds some extra value to the package, but at the end of the day, the real fun is slaughtering the forces of Hell with your super shotgun. It's not quite a return to the days of old, but it's still one of the best shooters on the market.

It may not be as influential or creative as either the original Doom or Doom 3—which, although it hasn't aged well, ushered in a dozen monster-closet copycats. Still, Doom in 2016 is successful because it knows it's dumb and leans into the fact. There are no pretensions towards artistry here, no delusions of grandeur. It's a popcorn flick where the main character can only speak in gunshots.

Doom is a game that focuses on having a kickass campaign and tries to have a fun multiplayer but doesn't. The game also gives us a nice feature known as SnapMap that I didn't expect to be so good. Doom isn't perfect but it surely isn't a bad game. If you are looking for a different type of shooter or just a new game to add to the shelf, then Doom is an excellent choice. If you are looking for a multiplayer experience that will blow you away, then Doom probably isn't a good choice.

DOOM 2016, whether you call it an expansion of existing lore or a rebooting of the story for a modern audience, is a good game. It's not great though, as the run-and-gun pace and gore can only sustain gameplay for so long in a limited setting. It makes up for some of the repetitiveness, however, by providing fast and often tense battles that, even on the PS4, maintain a mostly high framerate.
