Doom has always been my jam. Funny enough, while I played it in its original form it wasn’t until the 32x version (coincidentally, the only game on the system worth a damn) and then the PlayStation remake that I really got into it.
But get into it I did playing it so much that I could eventually go through the entire game in one go. It still is one of the finest shooters ever made, and I feel like many developers have lost the art of what makes a fun single-player campaign in lieu of big scripted moments and companion characters that hold your hand the whole way. That said I’m even a big supporter of Doom 3, particularly the later BFG Edition. It’s a legitimately great game, even though I understand people not being happy with it just because it didn’t really feel anything like Doom.
They’ll have no such issues with this new Doom. This is the old brought back to life and perfectly melded to some new mechanics. This is the way you update a classic game, and I’d say it’s just as good a job as id Software did with the incredible Wolfenstein (2014).
So yeah, I love this game and am probably going to go back and play through the campaign on the hardest difficulty mode because I can’t get enough of it.
