  • This game was too hectic for me. Extremely competently made, but too stressful and, dare I admit it: too fast for me. My pulse raised to extreme heights, and I found myself thinking of Doom Eternal more as hard work than fun. Also, the jumping-sections were idiotic and cumbersome. Also, I don't agree with the more cartoony graphics either, with neon, brightly coloured drops and giant rotating question-marks to indicate a secret. Doom 2016 was more fitting for my taste.

  • I am an old Doom fan and I liked the look of this trailer more than the previous Doom but... I just want to creepy creep around. I don't want colourful shit. I don't want a UI. I don't want upgrades. I don't want to jumpy jump.

  • I'm debating buying this. EVERYONE says this is an awesome game. i only give myself a one game every few months budget and im stuck between a few different titles.. Will this run at 4k 120fps with a msi gaming x trio 2080ti, 32gb 3200mhz ddr4, and water-cooled 9900k? For a 6 thousand dollar pc youd be surprised how many games i can barely hit 70-80fps on my 4k 120hz hdr monitor. 4k is a nightmare to run! my rx580 ran all my games on 1080p 60 no problem. even on maxed out graphix quality and 100% rendering. I figured a pc of this caliber would be able to run everything 4k 120 the way my last pc ran 1080p 60.. nope. which makes sense i guess when you break down the numbers, but its still disappointing. But how optimized is this game to run on high end hardware? When something as simple as minecraft can barely stay at 60fps on this pc you come to realize that some games are just terribly optimized for certain hardware. So hopefully ID software is a little better at what they do. I imagine they are. You dont have an iconic game like doom without picking up a few skills along the road of your 30 year old world famous franchise.

    • If you've yet to reach a conclusion, I find this game is well-optimized and I have no problems running it at 60+FPS on a rig with a 1080TI and a decent processor. Your PC should run it easily.

  • Huge DooM fan. But after DooM 3 I kinda forgot about it. I played a few minutes of DooM 2016 and it didn't grab me instantly so I moved on. I'm falling behind now, I'm going to have to go back and beat that and DooM Eternal now!

    • Yeh I was surprised by this review. Doom Eternal feels like the anti-Doom. Mario style platforming, constant pop ups for unlockables and RPG-lite elements. After a few hours I quit when I couldn’t get passed a platforming section.

  • Just want to say: DAT Ducky mouse! I'd so love to love it as an idea: A PBT mouse. The thing is, the modern gaming mice trend is to go down in weight and that thing is rather heavy. Here's hoping Ducky will release a lightweight, ambidextrous shape. And if they're listening to the market, they will. I'd buy one in a heartbeat.

  • I played this game honestly this game should be a nominee for game of the year I honestly have no complaints with it 2016 felt a bit slow for a doom game but eternal Just hoards after hordes of demons in a doom way and it's more difficult I like it Plus I love the mixing of 2016 and Doom 2 together bringing back new and old enemies just makes the game feel more complete and more like a doom game

  • I hated the forced complexity of this game. I just wanna kill demons damnit. To the game's credit I was able to simply wing it for quite a while but it became clear at a certain point that I was just missing some tools that I needed. After that the game turned into fucking Simon. Like, literally that color and sound matching game. Because you walk into a room and you need the monsters to either barf out yellow, blue or, green stuff when they die. On top of that I had serious issues telling some of the bipedal demons apart except by the sounds they made. So yeah, I put it down. At some point I'll lower the difficulty and finish it but right now I feel like Brutal Doom is still better.

  • My PC isn't quite up to par to run this thing at the "required" minimum 60 fps so I picked it up for PS4, and while I'm terrible at first-person shooters with a controller(I can never figure out how people are able to aim so well so fucking quickly with a damn controller), fortunately you can use a keyboard and mouse no problem on this console. Great review as always!

  • This game really paid homage to the original Doom series, I'm only halfway through the game and I'm noticing a lot of similarities that are great. Not to mention the replayability is there with those cheat codes because you can revisit your previously played maps with those cheat codes enabled, and have a blast, literally. And that's another great thing, maps, each map has his own feel, it's not just one run on long game like Doom 2016 was.

  • The only real problem I have with this game is some of the platforming. Sometimes it's simply not fun and just tedious. Trying to look around a level to see where there's a monkey bar or where there's a sticky wall to find out where to go next isn't my favorite. That's a minor complaint though. The game is phenomenal.

  • Doom Eternal is certainly a very addictive and exciting game, but ... after a few hours of the game, I REALLY got tired! Since you need to concentrate very much on the battle and respond quickly. Nevertheless, it was an interesting experience in recent years! Doom Eternal just took all sorts of fashion shooters by the collar, like Far Cry with their shelters and health syringes, and as if said "вот как надо весело играть в стрелялки!!!" =D . I’m used to slow shooters in recent years, and Doom Eternal is really like a very invigorating breath of fresh air! I strongly support the saying "guys - how do you play at higher levels of difficulty ?! Every second is important ..." = D Thanks so much for the video!

  • I almost kinda miss the pistol. I had no need for it before since you never ran out of ammo in 2016, even on the harder difficulties, but enemies are now bullet sponges and the game doesn't give you a whole lot with the chainsaw. A small but infinite-ammo sidearm for when your main armaments are out and your chainsaw blip is refueling would not have been a bad idea, in my opinion.

  • I was really hoping this game wouldn't be a continuous gladiator ring simulator. Maybe I didn't get far enough in the game, but for the 4 hours I played, it felt incredibly bogged down by the constantly going in a room, having the doors lock behind me, endless waves of stuff spawning and repeat. I love the combat, I love the atmosphere, I love the music and I love the level design, but for how fast paced and intense this game should feel, it just doesn't. The original Doom games felt more like a 100 yard dash whereas this feels like a marathon. The game would be near flawless for me if I had the option to sprint my way through instead of waiting for the doors to open after every room.

  • Great review. This game looks very good, and pretty well-polished, but the gratuitous glowy-stuff-flying-everywhere console-style graphics during combat kinda kill the immersiveness for me that made the originals so moody and gloomy for me. It's also strange to see modern PC hardware on your desk, so used to seeing retro gear everywhere.

  • It may be too relentless to actually be any lasting fun though. More than one play-through. Why return to execute one single blistering kill sequence until your rage veins explode on your forehead, over and over? We are not all tweaking on Adderall ID. I'm still a little iffy. Let the fanboy wear off a bit. I don't think we are getting ANY honest reviews. We are getting the industry brown-nose. Doom 2016 is cool. But this is the best game EVER? Okay guys.

  • Your mouse argument is dated. Even the military uses Xbox controllers. The mouse keyboard combination does nothing for acuity. Except make aiming easier for the right handed. It is terrible for building both hands. Your left hand ends up severely deficient. Making it less difficult for PC/Mac users, but less skill building in the long run. You are not using both halves of your brain the same way unless you are using a current generation controller. You become more and more accurate over time, with both hands.

  • in my experience, the weapon sandbox isn't that different from 2016. when you get the ssg and the ballista upgraded, you don't need any other weapons. i actually got a bit lost every time my ammo for both depleted and i couldn't find a piñata to saw in half. what do i use? i actually get lost for a few moments. thankfully the chaingun is pretty good, but if it wasn't for it i'd be fucked. i don't think it's a bad thing though. it just means those two weapons are that satisfying to use. i have to say though that i use both at the same time. i switch between them for each shot, because its faster to fire each weapon once than just staying on one, thanks to the awesome speed of weapon switching in this game.
