A quick early opinion on the game, as my copy came last night, two days early (thanks SimplyGames!).

I've given it a quick whirl for an hour or so and... it feels like Doom. The fast pace and simple, adrenaline-pumping gameplay of the originals mixed with the aesthetic of Doom 3 (more or less).

It's straight into the action with very little in the way of story so far, but at the same time there have been a couple of hints of doing something fairly interesting that may tie the story of this game back into the earlier ones (or may not, who knows).

Oh, and the sound design is ace - a modern update of the old games, both in terms of the jagged music and the sfx (remember that feeling of dread when you suddenly hear an imp hiss out of nowhere? That's back.) In fact, there's a real sense that this has been made for Doom fans of old, above all. (Is it sad that I felt a nostalgic thrill when I realised I had to find a blue keycard?)

There have been some innovations though - there's a 'glory kill' system that lets you perform special takedowns on enemies that are close to death (in return for extra health) and there's more weapon modification than I remember in a Doom game before.

At its heart though it seems to be pretty focused on making you keep moving at all times and have to be ready for a fight at any moment. Which is as it should be.
Good price for those are eligible for this offer, remember this code is for new customers of prime now and may not work if you've already used a code before, but you can create a new account and prime trial to take advantage of the offer

thanks mine arrived today but a been a little put off by the negativity but that was for the MP and for me Doom has always been about the single player
they've also embargoed review copies not a good sign..I'd wait on this game.

everyone i know who played it says its awful BUT thats the MP who was developed by Affinity and not ID who have done the single player. so if you are a MP only person i would keep as far away as possible from it. seems people who got it early love the single player but it does look like this game will be judged on its awful multiplayer

Edited by: "voyager123" 12th May 2016
Played 3 hours of the single player last night. It's brilliant. Utterly brilliant.
Other games that have had a release day embargo:
Every Single MGS game
Every single GTA game
Infamous: Second Son
South Park RPG
Review embargos mean nothing about a game's quality.

Thanks. I knew this would go cold (like the GTA V deal - sour grapes cold votes from non-PrimeNow-eligible HUKDers), but if it means a few people are able to pick up a copy at a decent price then it was worth posting.

I think its less about sour grapes and more about the fact that almost anything/everything on amazon could become a good deal with £10 off...

Is it still an embargo as they aren't stopping reviews publishing reviews prior to the release but rather they aren't sending out review copies early.
multiplayer was awful like playing unreal tournament on the dreamcast. its 2016 for god sake

Well that says more about them considering DOOM is and always will be focused on the single player experience. Also, MP is far from a mess.
wow! why all the cold for a physical copy? Is it a crime these days not to buy from dodgy dealers that don't reveal how they obtained the cd keys?

No, this code always gets a cold voting. Search doom and there's quite a few deals voted hot for the £32 mark.

Yeah it was okay at first but soon became very very dull which is a real shame as I miss the old quake 3 /UT multiplayer.

I had mine early from Simplygames too, so far I'm loving this, it's just fun, shooters haven't been fun since the quake/unreal days in my opinion

Did you try the most recent Wolfenstein? That was pretty good if you're a fan of old-school FPSs.

Totally different games really I think. Uncharted 4 I feel like I have to really get stuck into, but Doom is something I'm going to be happy to pick up and play in shorter bursts when I want something a bit more intense.

Its like the worst of modern and old school shooters mixed together like no sprinting, no aiming down sights, loadouts and jetpack booting which is pointless as you can barely boost for more than a few inches. Also they downgraded the graphics in the beta version so the alpha version looked better. Funny thing is this game has been in development since 2008 yet plays like a really bad free to play game.

A really bad free to play game - that's an over-exaggeration if I've ever heard one. Didn't you also say Uncharted 4 is 'very disappointing' which is also laughable.

What games do you actually like?

None, just put them on ignore they are just doing it for the attention. Honestly if someone dislikes as many games as they say they do why even bother with gaming as there is virtually nothing they like

This is how shooters used to be when they were fun, there's no sprint because it already fast and aim down sights? Geeze *rolls eyes* kids these days

Sure did! I miss shooters like this!
Picking this one up. Loved the doom mp alpha/beta, probably owned a few on here that's why they hate the mp.
i really enjoyed the mp as well and am looking forward to the full game but i've got a sneaky feeling the price will drop quickly as they couldn't have picked a worse time to release this up against the mighty uncharted.
Can anyone find the regular version on prime now for PS4?
