An even faster and bloodier but slightly wayward follow-up to a thunderous shooter reboot.

I am late writing this review in 2021 but that's not gonna change the fact that doom eternal is insane. People dislike its parkour, the monkey bars, the platforms, and the terrain but i found this being great, allowing more creativity for bad-*** combos and to pick up the pace.
