What is it?
The 2016 reboot of DOOM blew all expectations away. Unwavering cruelty and constant movement are essential to surviving and progressing in the game, as the threats you face are much more agile, intelligent and adaptive than ever. Thus, the combat is always gratifying and rewarding, also thanks to the numerous weapons, upgrades, power-ups and grisly executions. The package is topped off with an action-centric Arcade mode, an expansive mapmaker and a pretty good multiplayer mode (even if it doesn’t gel with the rest of the game).
DOOM (2016) is one of the best shooters of the previous decade, and a prime example of how to successfully reboot a title without straying away from its roots.
