Doom (2016)(Xbox One) Review

 So recently I decided on trading in my 3ds and all the games I had for it because I hadn’t used it for months and didn’t plan on buying anything for it any time soon. So with the money I got for trading that I had more than enough for an Xbox one and a few games. One of the games I decided to buy was Doom. This is a game I have wanted to play for some time now so after first getting home and starting the game it is the next day now and I have managed to finish the game and it is time for my review of the game.


 The story behind this is game is you are on mars where the facility you are based has been invaded from the forces of hell. The way that they have managed to get onto mars and into your facility is because someone has been helping them get here. So it is up to you to find a way to kill anything that comes from hell and find a way to make sure that they won’t be coming back anytime soon. I know that this is not the best sounding story in the world and while playing through the game you actually don’t care about the story you just want to find where the last enemy is so you can shoot it in the face with the rocket launcher.

 The way this game plays is fantastic and is probably one of my all-time favourite games I have played on a consoles. I didn’t notice anything wrong with the way doom guy was controlled he jumped when I pressed the A button, he would shoot when I pressed the triggers and everything the character was meant to do he did when the command was made. Every time you died on this game is wasn’t because the character did jump high enough or because the gun didn’t fire fast enough I was because you didn’t make the command at the right time and it was great knowing this as it meant if you wanted to improve at the game is meant you had to get better.

 If I was playing this game on a PC then I would most likely be saying how amazing the graphics are and when I went to play on my Xbox One I noticed it instantly how much of a step down it was but that doesn’t mean that this game doesn’t look great on a console, it does everything from the way that the level has been designed to the monster themselves everything looks great and makes the game that much more inviting.

 My overall opinion of this game is that it is fantastic and is actually made me want to go and play the first three doom game which I have never played before. I have said many times that my favourite part of any game is the story and if the game doesn’t have a good story then I am very unlikely going to like the game very much. However, this game is one of the expectations, I loved just about everything about this game expect the story and that is mainly because I didn’t pay any attention to what was happening as I was far too focused onto getting to the next checkpoint and wondering where that last fucking Imp is that is stopping me from getting it.

There is one thing I would change about this game and that is to put a radar that you can use to find out where all the enemies are at, of course this won’t be that useful when they are coming at you at every direction possible but it is when your down to the last two enemies one being basically Satan himself and an Imp you won’t be missing Satan due to him being 12 feet tall but going around the whole map finding the Imp did take away some of the fast paced action that was making the game so great.

Overall I think that you should buy this game if you have the chance too, as I don’t see how you can hate it unless you’re not a fan of FPS. But saying that FPS aren’t my favourite genre in game but this game is something different. From the difficulty level which makes you become a better gamer to be able to finish the game to being able to choose which gun gets an upgrade everything just seems to work perfectly together.
