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

A significant improvement on the reboot and while there are still a few flaws the core combat is some of the best in any first person shooter this generation.

I really want to like Doom Eternal more than I actually do. It's mostly because the team at id Software have sprinkled a menagerie of new mechanics on top of the already hectic combat from Doom 2016, resulting in a game can feel very overwhelming at times. I'm definitely not saying the game isn't fun to play—in fact, when every mechanic is clicking and your demoing hordes of
DOOM: Eternal expands upon the already exceedingly satisfactory DOOM 2016 with new environments painted with a more varied palette, more abilities and ways to maneuver the environment as well as enemies that demand you make use of them where-as the previous title could be coasted through almost entirely with the Super Shotgun once you'd found it even on Nightmare difficulty.
DOOM is indeed ETERNAL, wow what a game! Doom Eternal see's you the 'Demonslayer' defending Earth from the onslaught of demonic creatures, and by defend I mean to literally rip to shreds as your wide arsenal of destructive weapons make for some of the most fun you'll have playing a shooter. The gunplay has been perfected thanks to the wide variety of enemies that each require
Great game so far. I'm liking it. Was a bit frustrating at first there is a bit of a difference from the first game. One of the few sequels, especially from Bethesda, that is fun to play and meets or exceeds the original. For every bit of wolfenstein 2 sucking, Doom 2 doesn't. I don't know if they moved one team to another or what, but they did something right here. I am playing
