Doom reboots the gory franchise from id Software, the legendary studio that revolutionized the FPS genre with games like Wolfenstein 3D and the original Doom in the early ‘90s.
Take the role of the iconic Doom Marine and show no mercy to demons and hell spawns in this modern iteration of the FPS classic.
You return to Mars and fight against the vilest creatures in ever-so brutal fashion as you run and gun through tight corridors, as well as open arenas with fast-paced controls. Take the role of the iconic Doom Marine and show no mercy to demons and hell spawns in this modern iteration of the FPS classic.
Both veterans and newcomers to the series will find challenging game modes to test their skills. You’ll be decimating hordes of demons in the story campaign, or challenging others in many multiplayer types.
The campaign’s first few missions deliver exactly what you want from a modern Doom game, absolute carnage. You’ll have a wide array of guns at your disposal, both classic and new ones. Each weapon has its specific strengths and weaknesses against different enemies in all sorts of situations.
Execute your enemies in the most brutal and gory fashion with Glory Kills. Whenever you weaken the opponent and get close to him, you’ll have the chance to finish him off with a devastating finishing move, rewarding you with an extra loadout of ammo and health packs.
Create your own stages with SnapMap, Doom’s inbuilt powerful, but user-friendly level editor. Here you build a custom map, place items, and even customize game logic and AI, providing you with endless replay value you can share with friends or the whole world.
Where can you run this program?
You can run it on any computer with Windows 7 and higher. The game is also available on consoles like PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Is there a better alternative?
No. Doom is the perfect blend of classic deathmatch FPS gameplay with modern graphics. After you’ve finished the game you’ll want to check out Wolfenstein New Order, Serious Sam 3, and Bulletstorm.
This reboot delivers on all fronts. It brings back everything you’d want from a classic Doom game while keeping it up to date with current video game trends.
Should you download it?
Yes. Doom is an action-packed thrill ride with incredible visuals and a heavy metal soundtrack so good you want to listen to it outside the game too.
