I can’t believe what I’m about to write, but I don’t enjoy Doom Eternal. In fact, it has been the low point of my week-end.
The game is visually stunning, the music is cool and I really enjoy the character customisation. As in the previous Doom, my favourite part is to discover the hidden secrets.
However, the action scenes are pretty frustrating due to the lack of ammunitions. I usually don’t mind searching for ammo crates and I even enjoy replaying a scene once or twice just to make sure I collected everything, but having to switch the chainsaw in order to get restocked disrupts the action and works on my nerves.
Maybe, I’m getting to old to change habits that were built throughout decades of gaming. But, reading the comments on forums, it doesn’t seem like I’m the only one frustrated by this.
Why not giving us a fun shooter where you decimate the legions of hell in a non-stop action spree? After all isn’t it what Doom is all about?
I’ll probably give it another try when the bitter taste of this launch week-end has faded…
