Good deal have some heat
Didn't really enjoy the multiplayer beta, it just felt off. I get the feeling this will be sub £25 within a month or so, think I'll wait. But heat regardless
Il buy it, thrash the SP then sell a few days later, don't care about MP

I'm buying it for the single-player campaign, and everything I've seen from that feels good so far. We'll see I guess. Having this and Uncharted 4 hit in the same week is going to be a killer!
Do rakuten/SimplyGames take payment on order or dispatch?
so many games in such a short space a time coming out....

I have uncharted 4 preorder from a Tesco doubling up deal thing and have a stock pile of recent purchases but I do love a bit of doom.

Money is not the issue... hours in the day is!

I think with it going through Rakuten it will be on order.
Just tried to order using code but the order won't go through. I used the code yesterday for Uncharted 4 but thought you could use the code more than once

A weird hybrid shooter that feels more like Quake or Unreal than Doom but hey, its made clearly for console fans more used to COD.

​I got the feel of Quake and Doom but without the decent jumping and the fact there is loadouts makes it more like COD and BF

Having loadouts means that none of the weapons seem to be that powerful, rocket launcher in your loadout? its just wrong and totally not Doom. I understand they want to reward casual players with the chance to get some kills but doom is about getting good, not a randomly placed super gun that happens to spawn right next to you
I thought they had changed the crappy box art?
I'm waiting for the reviews.... 2nd choice after Uncharted 4
Good price now, but I expect it will be less than £30 soon after launch

That's quite a lot to shell out for a digital copy with no resale value. Based on comments about the game that I've seen so far, I think a physical copy is probably a safer bet.

under £16 each when taking gamesharing into account
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.
