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.
