DOOM Beta Thoughts

Real Talk By: KJ

Both maps in the beta were small, but perfect for combat.  I played primarily with a Lighting Rifle and Rocket Launcher combination.  This was perfect for me, but many played with shotguns.  I felt that all the available weapons in this build were all-powerful in their own right.  Players during deathmatch compete, grabbing power weapons, and even control of a demon.  This big powerful creature can move fast around the level with punishing rockets.  Still it is possible to ambush the demon.  The rival team has a fighting chance.

This game never feels too complex.  Still, The important factor is that it’s just plain fun.  The classic gameplay of old was captured with a fresh coat of paint.  It feels like an Unreal Tournament title also.  Super fast-paced arena combat.  With this form of multiplayer, and a traditional campaign as well, Doom could surprise in 2016.  Were you able to play the open beta?

  1. I wasn’t interested in this beta at all. When I think of Doom I think of a fun, fast paced, single player campaign that I can sink some hours into.

    I was also slightly disappointed that they didn’t take the New Order’s route and go with old school with a mix of new school. I don’t think I’ll enjoy this game as much as I did the Wolfenstein reboot, but I’m still sort of excited to get a chance to play Doom.

    I’ll probably never touch the multiplayer.

  2. My thoughts are this. I think they are trying to go in a good direction, however, I also think the loadouts and starting with more than one gun takes away from that old school hardcore flavor. I mean starting with a rocket launcher? I am holding reservations until I play the campaign portion of the game.

    The action of the multiplayer is cool and I think customizing your weapons is cool but I don’t like loadouts in my Doom/Quake Games. I would like to see an Old School option for multiplayer so that both hardcore old school players and newer players have options.
