For the love of all that’s holy, WARNING, this trailer is for mature audiences. Yes, the trailer for the video game is a horror show all by itself.
Oh look, DOOM, a game that had an awful movie inspired by several video games from many, many, many moons ago. And at least two generations of gaming ago.
And it uses Master Chief’s helmet from Halo, some parkour (and I think a jetpack) from Titanfall, a chainsaw from Gears of War, finishers from Mortal Kombat, all while you wreak carnage on demons from Hell…and, no, that’s not a video game they ripped off. At least not yet.
There was Dante’s Inferno, the video game, but that’s another story.
Can you tell I’m not impressed? This feels like they’ve taken every first person shooter released since the last Doom game and loaded them up into one great big mash-up of dubious plot. In fact, of all the words used to discribe the DOOM franchise, “plot” is not one of them.
You know what? the more I look at the trailer, the less impressed I am with it. All the levels seem monotonal
Not an enough exploration for my tastes.
Yes, shotgunning demons in the face as you escape Mars-Hell is a big part of the DOOM appeal, but my favorite part of DOOM has always been exploring the catacombs and finding a way out. The first three games were great at that.
This just looks like every other scripted shooter out there. No flavor at all.
