Is the new Doom too old-school?

All they had to do was take Doom and give it a serious make over in the Graphics department.

Doom is Doom and it doesn't need perks or kill streaks or levolution or blast processing or mode 7.

Doom is proper and wonderful as is as long as it has that OMG im fighting hell demons then it's a winner.

Blast processing bit made me lol.

Doom is Doom, lets see what it looks like when it finally arrives. Pure id Software stuff hasn't been a winner for some time, even if it powers the back-end of other games...

Yeh its been a long time since id has really put out something special, i think this might be it !

maybe i'm the only one but i wasn't very impressed with what they showed at e3. i don't get that sense of fear and the variations in monsters and animations looks like it will get old fast. i kept thinking of how well the last alien game was and how they managed to get such a great atmosphere going and solitude with the fear of what's around the corner. mind you this was just a demo.

True that. Will have to wait and see with the final game before a judgement can be fully made. But i am excited.

Doom was not originally a horror game. Doom 3 made it fit into that category, but here they're trying to go back to the arcadey roots.

Sorry to tell you but the real Doom was never about fear!Doom was first a tense gory mindless shooter;getting the tension from the packs or quantity of enemys that the game sends after you from everywhere.Its a game that keeps you on your toes due to the tension and intensity of the horde send after you not because of fear!

Nope it looks good and very cool. If it doesn't hold your hand then that's a good thing.

Sillicur1220d ago

Well said completely agreed

schmoe1220d ago
