2016 was an otherwise average year for Gaming, but this game elevated that year and gave me something fun to play on my own, rather than booting up my 360 and playing Arkham City for the 100th time. Shooting is as addicting as it is fun, play this if you want that classic 90s feel, or if you're bored

Been a bit since i finished this so it's not super fresh in my mind but this was pretty great. A shooter that's actually challenging on normal difficulty. This has been said a million times already but the soundtrack SLAPPPS. Also zero bugs (was playing ps4 version on ps5), flawless in that regard. The story and lore are solid. The real world tie-ins with energy crises and issues of humanity's expansion are very relevant. The satire is great too. Level design is really fine-tuned. Linear game but with plenty of secrets to find if you're paying attention. Highly recommend. More thoughts + comparisons to follow in Doom Eternal review

The absolute best game for someone that doesn't play many first-person shooters. The combat is wonderful for all skill levels and playstyles. A campy story that fits the world very well, and truly unique weapon and enemy variety. A true treat for any player, highly accessible for beginners. Do yourself a favor and up the difficulty halfway through the game if you started in the easiest difficulty, it makes you feel as if you as a player are progressing with the game and with your ever increasing arsenal. Play with a controller for a solid, punchy arcade-style feeling, play mouse and keyboard if you're in higher difficulty and the precision requires it. Only two downsides for this game: backtracking through some levels can hinder the experience and bog down the gameplay; early maps do a subpar job of differentiating their color schemes and layouts, leading the player to get lost at the beginning stages. Overall, a solid 4/5 I plan to come back and master further.
