Description

Developed by id software, the studio that pioneered the first-person shooter genre and created multiplayer Deathmatch, DOOM returns as a brutally fun and challenging modern-day shooter experience. Relentless demons, impossibly destructive guns, and fast, fluid movement provide the foundation for intense, first-person combat - whether you're obliterating demon hordes through the depths of Hell in the single-player campaign, or competing against your friends in numerous multiplayer modes. Expand your gameplay experience using DOOM SnapMap game editor to easily create, play, and share your content with the world.

You've come here for a reason. The Union Aerospace Corporation's massive research facility on Mars is overwhelmed by fierce and powerful demons, and only one person stands between their world and ours. As the lone DOOM Marine, you've been activated to do one thing - kill them all.

Features:

  • A Relentless Campaign: There is no taking cover or stopping to regenerate health as you beat back Hell's raging demon hordes. Combine your arsenal of futuristic and iconic guns, upgrades, movement and an advanced melee system to knock-down, slash, stomp, crush, and blow apart demons in creative and violent ways.
  • Return of id Multiplayer: Dominate your opponents in DOOM's signature, fast-paced arena-style combat. In both classic and all-new game modes, annihilate your enemies utilizing your personal blend of skill, powerful weapons, vertical movement, and unique power-ups that allow you to play as a demon.
  • Endless Possibilities: DOOM SnapMap - a powerful, but easy-to-use game and level editor - allows for limitless gameplay experiences on every platform. Without any previous experience or special expertise, any player can quickly and easily snap together and visually customize maps, add pre-defined or completely custom gameplay, and even edit game logic to create new modes. Instantly play your creation, share it with a friend, or make it available to players around the world - all in-game with the push of a button.

The best game of 2016

Reviewed by on

This was the best game of 2016 that I'm still playing a year later. Some of the most fun you can have with a game and there's a lot of replayability with the arcade mode.

As others have said: this disc only contains a tiny amount amount of the actual data of the game. At the time of writing this review, the game takes up a whopping 67 GB, and the disc only holds around 6.7 GB if I remember correctly.

HELL YEAH!!

Action from the word go, and the action only intensifies to the end. Dispatching the hordes of hell in a glorious gory rampage has never been more satisfying. The weaponry is quite reminiscent of the classic Doom, but only better thanks to the awesome upgrades. Everything from the cluster grenade launcher on the pump action shotgun, to the siege beam on the Gauss cannon. . .and should one of these demons manage to survive a blast from one of your weapons of choice, you are treated to an opportunity to perform one of the many "Glory Kills". Nothing quite like ripping the horn from a gigantic demon's skull, flipping it around, and then jamming it back into it's grotesque face. Then there is the music. . .aptly eerie and atmospheric while moving around from one objective to the next, and when confronted by the minions of satan, the music switches over to an adrenaline-fueled brutal beat, which only makes the carnage so much more amazing!

I personally cant say much about the multiplayer aspect of the game as I haven't experienced much of it until recently, but what I can tell you, is that it's a refreshing nostalgia trip to the multiplayer games of old such as Quake and Unreal.

On a side note, I suggest you play the "Nightmare" difficulty when playing the campaign. . .being kept on your toes all the way to the end, makes the finishing off the final boss insanely gratifying .

Easily one of the best games I have played to date.
10/10 - Would go on a rampage into Hell, and foil satan's plans to invade the mortal realm again.

BFG DIVISION

DOOM (2016) is not only the Best Shooter Since Wolfenstein: The New Order, It is the Best Optimized Shooter on PC in years. The Engine Works Wonders and Scales beautifully. Always pump 60 frames of Gore and Metal into your face per second.

This is Pure Shooter.

You Want Cover? **** you says Doom, You Will Run and Jump
Reloading? **** you says Doom, that's precious time that can be used for Demon Killing.
You want an Orchestral Score? **** you in the Ear says Doom and Blasts you with Mick Gordon's Amazing Industrial/Metal Soundtrack.

10/10

Would Recommend to everyone Old enough to have played OG Doom and recommend to the yung'uns who like their Military Shooter. Because they need to learn when their Elders speak.

Amazing!

Rip and Tear!

You might have read these words and probably not really understood the meaning unless you had played the original Doom games and even if you had (I did and still had not no idea about what Rip and Tear meant) you might still not quite understand. Let me just tell you that the adrenaline rush I got from playing this by ripping tearing through demon guts (and arms and almost pretty much all of them) was enough to get me hooked. So if you enjoy a fast and thrilling first-person shooter without too much of a story then you'll absolutely love the new Doom.

Quick and dirty summary:
Pros:
- Single player is friekin' awesome.
- Maps get larger and more vertical as you progress and I can't explain how much I love this aspect!
- Weapons get MUCH better later on especially with the upgrade system and variety.
- Secrets are fun to hunt down if you're looking for something extra to do between demon "parties".
- It has (or at least had, was said to be only available for a limited time) a demo. More publishers/devs should do this.
- Snap map (the map creation utility included) looks to have a lot of potential.
- Did I mention how flipping fantastic the single player campaign is to play through?

Cons:
- The control schemes seem to not be in sync with single player and snap map (seems to load a different executable when you switch between the modes) but it's easily forgotten after you've faffed around initially to get them in line. Let me just also add that toggled crouch has always sucked - why not add toggled aim for zoom then?
- No SLI support currently and if you have it enabled you might encounter some performance degradation or graphical issues such as texture/shadow flickering. It might still come though (together with Vulkan support) but don't count on it just yet.
- It's a large download and if you're like me with a crappy barely 4 meg internet connection it'll take around three days to download.

Niggles:
- While it has a demo this hardly does the job to grip you in the same way the full version of the game does. Things start heating up at around the third level really IMO where as the demo only includes the fairly brief and boring first level.
- Can't really comment on multiplayer as it's never been my thing but be warned that from what I've read is that it's currently pretty awful but hopefully will get better.
- Map has 3D and 2D view mode but sadly you have to toggle these every time you open it up. Also no way-point system but this is just a very minor issue that others might state would "dumb" down things.

Conclusion:
The newest incarnation of Doom has a fantastic single-player experience and a fairly entertaining map creation portion that I'm still learning about (already consumed a few hours just playing other peoples creations). The campaign is fast, furious and frantic and it has enough of those extra bells and whistles to make you want to keep playing (when that music kicks in and you're getting your aim aligned perfectly you'll not want the action to stop as you crank up the volume to just Rip and Tear!).

Not a review, just a heads up. Initial installation is 43.8Gb. The game ship with a single DVD that gives you 6.7Gb of that. The rest is a download from Steam.
