I plan on picking this up at some point, maybe next paycheck. First impressions of people have me hopeful, even if it isn't perfect.
 

Plus I need a current-gen game hardcore on my PC. Got such a fancy rig and I never use it :(

I think you'll both enjoy it. The only reason I could think it's getting hate is because it introduced the double-jump, it's not like the older games (who knows...I just don't get that), and people bitch in about the beta. Multiplayer is great. The beta showed 2 maps, 1 demon, 2 game modes, and not all the equipment (grenades/guns, other unlockables). But the beta was enough to make me wanna get the game. It's not really CoD like except for the loadouts, level-up system (debateable) and the run-and-gun gameplay. I would argue that the gameplay is different though. To me, it reminds me or Halo 3. I like that there's no sprinting--only going. There's no radar or map, so you've gotta check corners. There are guns and power-ups to go for, as well as multiple levels & corridors to run through.

I can't speak for the Snap map thing, as I haven't tried it yet. I also haven't played any more of the story. I saw something online earlier that Newegg is selling it for 45 bucks FYI.

Honestly, while I don't care much for this new one, all the talk is kinda making me wanna replay the originals. I think I still have a copy of both the SNES and N64 ports lying around somewhere that I can dust off.

PC Master Race. Thinking of picking this up sometime. I have and love the originals and heard this recent one is very similar. Never played Doom 3 but I heard it more of a horror game than a action game like the originals. Looking to see how this one is.

That's super awesome you still have a copy of it.

I'm still in big debate if I'm going to buy this newest Doom game or not. Looks really cool.

GBA??
Okay, NOW you're fucking with me, right?
I mean, I could just google this, but...

 

 

 

>>Edit:

 

So IGN has a Review... IN PROGRESS. I don't know what's up with that fuckin' site and only having "reviews in progress" at the time of a game's launch. I looked around on youtube for reviews from other outlets (including the despised Gamespot), but couldn't find any reviews.

(>>Edit: I see they actually gave it a non-final numerical score, which is a first. 7.1?! Get the fuck out!!!)

 

Luckily, this dude has a review that seems pretty fair. In defense of other outlets, this guy seems to have written this review before completing the campaign. I've never heard of the dude, and he's got no cred as far as I'm concerned, but he states his claims and backs them up with video evidence. The only thing that seemed out of place was in the ending summary: he cites "painful load times" as one of the "The Bads," despite failing to mention anything about them during throughout the review. I wonder how bad they actually are.

 

Anyway, here's the review.

 

 

He gives it a 9/10, btw.
