    Well, let's face it, Doom 2016 also doesn't feel much like original Doom either. It feels more like a smaller-scale Serious Sam.

    Maybe the last time I saw a game play like old Doom was all the way back to Painkiller.

    @Malek86 Oh god no, Raven's Wolfenstein was awful. The main thing I remember about it is the head-bob (which couldn't be disabled). You'd walk forwards and one moment you'd be down at ankle-level and the next you'd be staring down on the world from the rooftops.

    The first online match I played in that was truly awful. Most of it, I was stuck under the floor.

    The game itself was ok in a 6/10 way (IMO), once it was seriously patched. I did actually finish it, but the reboot was much, much better.

    Didn't wolfenstein have a great multiplayer? I think it might have even been free?

    @AaronTurner

    The one that came with Return to Castle Wolfenstein was the tits. Think the MP became free when it was rebranded as Enemy Territory.

    Despite everything I may pick this up if it reviews well. Any shit to detract from reality is welcome at the moment surely.

    Dispatched!!!! So excited! Re eg reviews, last couple of years they've become so shit. They don't give recommended if there isn't the correct modern gender or race balance in a eastern European medieval games.

    Does seem to be an outlier looking at reviews elsewhere, can't say the negatives mentioned in the EG review bother me that much. Mine has also been dispatched so I'll have no choice but to play it and find out (hopefully before Friday...)

    Some nice review snippets...

    Doom Eternal doesn't just set the bar, it breaks it. Many of the best games of the FPS genre do what has already been done, and can do it really, really well, but Doom Eternal does what no other game has done before, crafting a fast-paced power fantasy that sets your brain cells on fire...

    Fuck GoldenEye 007, fuck Half-Life, fuck Halo: Combat Evolved. Hell, fuck DOOM. DOOM Eternal is, in my professional opinion, the new best first-person shooter of all time.

    DOOM Eternal is the most metal game in all of creation. It is rage and fire, the purity of armed combat dialed up to eleven and unleashed on hell!

    Doom is far too metal for Kerrang.

    I don't know, it's Edwin, I don't take stock of a lot of his reviews tbh. If it's not indie or Nintendo then EG aren't really fans.

    I've no idea who Edwin is or how it's reviewing in general. All I know it's it looks awesome and can't wait for my cdkeys code to show so I can get it downloaded.

    It doesn't have equal opportunities for the doom slayer innit. Plus the music is way to heavy for them.

    It reads like a Michelin reviewer visiting some fast food place. You shoot demons? How quaint.

    25 years ago, Edwin would have been the one crying "If only we could talk to the monsters".
