In this Doom 2016 review, you will learn the game has been released three days ago and is available for $60 on Amazon and it is an ultra-gory demon killing shooter. That’s it; it’s no more “epic” than it sounds.
The game takes you to Mars, makes you kill, kill and then kill some more and basically that’s it. No fancy story, no horror, just non-stop shooting and a few cult jokes, and there you have it – Doom 2016 reviewed.
It’s not a story-driven game or the 2004 successful and acclaimed survival horror game one might anticipate.
It has those big arenas that take you to the corridor and then back to another arena in an endless loop of arena-corridor pulsing rhythm. Your character has the usual laser pistol, the shotgun and heavy assault rifle, the rocket launcher, the all so known BFG and off you go to the “killing spree.”
Doom 2016 is not violent; it’s the next thing after that. You rip hearts out and push them down the throats of demons to make them explode, you rip a minotaur’s horn and impale it with it, not to mention all the disembowelment and blood splatters from the shooting itself. It’s pretty violent.
But in all fairness, it has enough parts from the classic cult game mixed with next-generation visuals and game experience that will turn you into a fan.
The story will start suddenly. In a Martian experiment lab where our Doom 2016 Marine character will first kill a possessed scientist, you will soon find out the majority of the 60,000 inhabitants of the research facility are possessed. What do you have to do? Kill or be killed.
This Doom 2016 is a basket of gory finishing moves, unique “glory kills”, enhanced armor and weapons, different levels of aggression, and everybody’s favorite: doors to the original Doom.
Doom 2016 is the same giant maze with locked doors and color-coded keys to unlock them; 3D maps at the call of a button and lots of demon combat. You will find yourself wanting to explore the place more than continue with the endless combat.
Also, the PC experience is much nicer than the PlayStation 4 one, but overall it’s a fun game you’ll love.
