What pissed me off was that you couldn't even use the stupid thing as a melee weapon. Instead, you have your fists, which can't do shit.

A few other posters here that didn't like the game said it eventually grew on them as well, but they still didn't sound too positive about it. I admit, it does seem to "improve" a bit around the time you make it to the UAC complex, but that's pretty close to halfway through the game. It shouldn't take that long for someone to like a game. My beef with it is the over reliance on using sub-weapons and glory kills to refill health/armor/ammo and arena battles where they throw a bunch of heavy demons at you. Honestly, this game feels like it was made by a completely different group than who made Doom 2016. The levels all kinda look the same (city ruins/medieval-looking castle/caves), the enemies look too cartoony (some of them I can't even tell what they are), the weird platforming stuff, the weapon/suit upgrades. All in all, to me it doesn't feel like Doom, it feels like someone put a Doom skin over a generic shooter. Still, I'm going to attempt to finish it.

I will heartily agree that Doom 2016 was a much better game.

That being said, this one does improve when you're loaded with all the weapons and can pretty easily get ammo and armour. I've enjoyed replaying the levels much more than the original playthrough.

In related news, they've released a patch for the Super Gore Nest master level. There were a shitload of progression bugs. I played it twice and got stuck after the first section, due to one of the bugs. They claim that it's fixed, now, so I'll give it another shot.

You should put this in it's own post, instead of here. More eyes are likely to see it.

I actually sent the Forum Moderator a message yesterday about doing a 'Sticky" on say....Upcoming Releases....that way put stuff in and come around release then start a thread on it. We have Game Deals, What You're Playing in the Month, console Stuff...but nothing really on Announce and Upcoming Games.....I'll wait and see what he has to say but threw this in here for now since it's close to that...Doom Style....Thanks...

Looks pretty good!

Anyone know who's narrating the trailer? He sounds very familiar.

^ is this like a full game? It’s only $34 for XBX. Do you have to have any knowledge whatsoever of Warhammer, which I think is an big online game?
