    It's not enhanced yet, but is due an update "soon", which hopefully means it'll actually be soon.
    The fact that it’s actually listed as ‘Enhanced’ on the store must mean that “soon” is......”now”?

    Shirley?

    Bought this the other day. Really is quite good! Old fashioned run and gun, well up my street! Still trying to find first old school level!

    I got started on it over the weekend, with the 4K update it seemed a good time to finally dig it out of the backlog.

    Loving it so far, not played too much yet (have just completed Foundry) but it feels superb to play. I've been taking the time to find every secret along the way, the old school sections are cool but it's the upgrades that need to be found, it seems like you could easily miss out on loads of them.

    @Switch024 yeah keep searching each level for all the upgrades. Makes you bad ass by the end. What difficultly ? If normal put it on hard, make it way more fun later.

    I've been really enjoying this but the way fights all play out is a little disappointing.

    Get to an open looking room, active portal thingy in the middle, deal with waves of enemies, repeat.

    @Bichii Yeah playing on Ultra Violence, doesn't seem too bad at the minute but expect it will ramp up the challenge a bit later on.

    I like the gameplay cycle! It's a palette cleanser to have access to many different weapons after Halo and CoD has made every FPS limit you to two weapons at a time.

    Rail sniping a baddy, then switching to shotgun for the daemon on your ass, then to rockets for the blob of enemies, then to plasma etc... Sweet!

    Just about to finish up the first Hell level, it's taking me ages as I'm only getting on for half an hour here and there but having a great time for the most part.

    One thing I'm not a fan of are the Rune Trials, I feel like they interrupt the flow a bit too much with the loading screens often taking longer to get through than the actual trial. It probably seems worse as I am only getting on for short periods at a time.

    Finally started this. Enjoying it so far (end of level one).

    Is there any point in me trying multiplayer at all, or is it totally dead now?

    No matter if it's dead or not, I think it's shit. For multiplayer, get Quake Champions which is free to play and much better than Doom MP.

    edit: duh, not free to play. It's €5 for the starter pack. It was free to play on a weekend and players could keep it if they made a few little achievements, which is how I got it. Still greatly recommended for that price.

    It looked pretty empty when i tried, i was just wondering about hoovering some easy mp achievements if possible.

    Anyone got any suggestions for better suit & weapon upgrades? I'm sitting on the suit one for now, until i see how things go, but went charged shot for the shotty.

    Thinking more resistance from 'splosions & own weapon damage to start with. Or is going down the ammo & map discovery route better to start with?

    @DrStrangelove how is Quake Champions? I was huge on Quake 3 and miss the general carnage and simplicity it had in modern multiplayer

    Very similar to Q3A. There are a few differences, like different "champions" have different special abilities and slightly different stats. Also, weapons respawn more quickly, and there's a nailgun. Not sure about all the changes, I think some are for the better and some for the worse. They say balancing issues were addressed so it's harder for one player to utterly pwn another.

    Minor differences aside, it's good old Q3A. Just the good old rocket jump/railgun mayhem you're used to. If you're nostalgic about Q3A, get it. If you're looking for that oldschool FFA carnage, look no further. Greatly recommended for its low entry price of €5.

    I've not really got the time or patience to make anything good myself but I'd be interested in good community creations since there isn't any official single player DLC

    The trailer had an Archvile in it so that could be a real bastard with Summoners involved too

    Ooooh. I'm looking forward to more Doom. It was fantastic. I'll keep an eye out for gameplay footage surfacing.
