DOOM: A Brilliant Throwback to Classic Shooters


DOOM has gotten a lot of flak since beta about their multiplayer, but the single player and SnapMap features are where the game shines. I’ll admit, even I was not too excited about the new DOOM coming out when I played beta and found that the campaign was not co-op.

Let me tell you, forget all you’ve heard and go play this game. Now. It is so much better than I could have imagined. If you’re someone who misses old, fast-paced shooters, you are in for a treat.

What Gave Me Joy

A Modern take on Classic Shooters

The best part about DOOM by far is the gameplay. It is so fast and intense and fun that you could just play through the campaign multiple times for no other reason than to experience the combat. It has been a long time since I played a shooter with so much excitement and energy in their combat.

Every fight feels like it is do or die and you need to be quick to take some of the enemies down. They do a good job at making sure you get the rush of playing a classic shooter like DOOM.
