DOOM - Initial Impressions
Welp, the new Doom game is out. I had high hopes because this is by Bethesda, and, at least in the first half hour, I am not disappointed. That being said, the game can be quite...jarring. The original Doom was super violent and gory for its time, though now seems pretty pale in comparison.
But the new Doom? It's fast. Maybe lower case doesn't convey the meaning enough. It's F.A.S.T. Your health gets zapped fast, but that's okay, you get healing items fast. You run fast, jump really far (and fast), and squish demons fast. Even the assassination animations are fast.
This is a game best taken in small doses. Fun, but overwhelming.
