DOOM [2016]

This game is incredibly fun. The graphics are superb and the story flow is well crafted and humorous. Just what you need heading back to hell.
Replaying the game was a joy and loved clocking all the challenges and mastering the weapons / runes.

Glory killing just never got old.

Even attempting the story mode on Ultra-NIghtmare but hitting a few snags with it.

Arcade mode is too addictive as well… The respawn time combined with the urge to get the Slayer medal on Ultra-Nightmare makes for constant play, even forgot to blink at parts trying to focus on getting max score.

Really could keep playing and aim for 100% but want to move on to other things.
Definitely going back to it though sometime.

Multiplayer seemed pretty solid, I just didn’t play that much more of it as not a big player of that kind of online play. The unlockables are tempting; I’m a sucker for collecting but o

The SnapMap editor was very intuitive and deep too, played some great featured maps.
It adds so much more to the already big game. These 4 modes are definitely worth a purchase.

Minor Spoilers:

The game feels more suited for the close range / glory killer. Hard to get some good sniping areas and when you do, especially on the harder difficulties, it’s easier just to keep moving and shooting close. There’s only 1 sniping gun anyway so isn’t too much of a loss.
[Edit]It’s a DOOM game anyway – don’t need snipers. The fact you don’t reload and there’s no cover gameplay makes it so much faster. Probably why I didn’t blink sometimes.[/Edit]

When the close play style is combined with the Armored Offensive rune and the Rich Get Richer you’ll be destroying everything as the infinite ammo perk will be held active longer. Best to throw points into upgrading the armor maximum obviously and maxing out that rune to lower the minimum required for that perk to 75.

Also, watch out if constantly firing the explosives when infinite… I blew myself up a few too many times spamming the world with rockets and forgetting to take care. The Environmental Resistance upgrades are worth getting…

Ammo Boost is useful early on and / or Equipment Power, if you’re a demolitions kind of player. As you won’t have the previous runes unlocked anyway to really make use of the infinite ammo.

Don’t think there was many negative points with this game. The story isn’t anything to write home about but the whole experience makes it a great recommendation.
