What did you think of the DOOM multiplayer beta?

This weekend saw the DOOM beta open up to more people – and we’ve rather liked it. It’s fast, it’s fun, and it’s what would happen if Quake 3 and Unreal Tournament had a terrifying, malformed baby. I’m certainly keen for more DOOM after the little slice of its multiplayer, but many people feel quite the opposite.

DOOM1

I know our own loveable cabbages, Matthew and Alessandro, are pretty enamoured with the DOOM beta – but they seem to be in the minority. A quick look on Steam shows that the beta is sitting with mostly negative user reviews.

Much of the negative sentiment seems to come from the fact that players have to choose loadouts, instead of picking up weapons on the map, and that the game has a “perks” system.

Says one angry player:

“This isn’t Doom. This isn’t old school, and they aren’t going back to their roots (maybe they just forgot what it use to be about?), so stop saying it is. It’s another generic, modern military shooter with a hellish look. The speed of the gameplay, the weapons, the announcer, the lack of screams/grunts from Doomguy, extremely limited level editor and no mod tools…. it just screams “not Doom”. The only similarities to “Doom” is that there’s no health regeneration and it takes place in hell. The game could have been tons better had they not tried to use Doom’s name and falsely advertise it as an old school shooter going back to it’s roots.”

DOOM2

That same angry person hates the loadouts:

“How can you add perks and weapon loadouts to a “Doom” game with a straight face? As if there were dozens of weapons to choose in Doom in the first place, the starter classes spawn you with a rocket launcher and double barrel (did I mention the 2 weapon holding limit aside grenades?), so what is encouraging you to explore the map and dominate it? Nothing. It’s not Doom and it’s even worse that they’re just calling it “Doom” because now, at least for the rest of this generation, people are going to think this is the “Doom” us ol­dfa­gs have been talking about and completely forget about what an amazing game – and a social experience at times – the original Doom was.”

DOOM3

Says another disgruntled player:

“Call of duty: Monster Warfare. Go full speed ahead with the casual games bethesda how about a new doom game every 9 months from now on with the full price of 90$ and make dishonored into assassin’s creed.”

DOOM4

And another:

“It has nothing to do with the vibe of any of the previous titles, which is probably why it’s called DOOM and not DOOM 4. Because we are into re-booting now, not making sequels. Because a sequel has to acknowledge and build upon the original in some way. This does no such thing – it borrows from a bunch of other financially successful online shooters (Loadouts, unlocks, XP progression? Really? In a DOOM game?) and it does so rather poorly.”

The game sits on Steam with negative user reviews vastly outnumbering the positive ones. Did you give the beta a go? What do you think of this modern take on classic gameplay? The beta’s been extended an extra day, so you may yet still be able to give it a bash.

    Must say I really enjoyed it. No it’s not true to the original and yes there are valid complaints, but I still had a blast. Gorgeous graphics, fast game play, get killed a LOT, experimenting with the new weapons and character customization, working up to Level 15… Fun. And at the end, for me at least, it will all be about the single player experience. Can’t wait!

      Final thought, I’ve bought into Doom and still own every single release since the original Shareware version. Double dipped several times. If Doom 2016 sucks, then so be it. We can always replay that which we hold dear.

    Loadouts and weapons aside, the pace and gameplay is pretty much exactly what I’d expected. It’s Quake 3 with a Doom skin and some modern concepts thrown in. The unlocks are all cosmetic, so who cares?

    The only thing missing are the weapon pickups, but I don’t feel it needs them. This adds some strategy to your gameplay, and you can change loadouts during the match anyway. Honestly, I kind of prefer this – because now you can get the weapons you like, and not be forced to use the first thing you come across in the hopes that camper with the railgun/rocket launcher doesn’t take you out for the 47th time.

    Now you just have to deal with the fact that a shotgun is stronger than a rocket launcher. LOL.

    But yes, I’m excited. This is the multiplayer I was hoping for, it’s spot on with its pace and gameplay. At least, with my rather limited time with the game.

    Single player is now the question – CoD 3 hour campaign, or sprawling levels that you get lost in like the originals. Time will tell.

      I enjoyed the weapon pickups of the old games. You were often forced to grab the closest weapon simply because you ran out of ammo, and that made things really exciting and unpredictable.

        But also really shit. What if you simply weren’t good with that weapon – then no matter what you were immediately disadvantaged. I think this way is better, both for balance and for overall player experience. I like it.

          But that’s exactly the point.
          I suck with all the weapons in every game, so for me it’s not that much of a difference. But I remember very well playing Unreal and Quake MP when I was younger, and those moments made for such awesomely fun moments.
          With set loadouts it’s just another modern shooter.

            But let’s be fair here, nowhere did they say they’re making another Quake 3. That’s a fan-made expectation. This IS a modern shooter based on a classic. I do want some modernisations in it. I like that it’s not just Quake 3 with DX12 support. I like the strategic choice on weapon selection. And when there are more maps – both official and fan-made – that choice may just change from map to map. I like that. I also like NOT scrambling for the railgun spawn point, hoping not to get killed right as you pick it up. I like that you can choose which weapons you prefer, and get them as you spawn. I like that a lot. I think it makes for faster gameplay with less RNG.

            It just feels generic to me, but that’s why I stand with my initial point. Don’t remove it, just make it a separate game mode.
            I won’t play either, since I won’t bother with the MP.
            Doom is SP-only for me.

          • Pariah

            April 18, 2016 at 10:42

            Lol, I want both. But I want them to feel completely different, and be completely different experiences. I don’t want either of them to be the focus, or to be diluted. I simply hope the SP has had the love and attention it deserves.

            As for the MP, I Like it. It just needs some balance with the weapons – the Shotgun cannot be the best weapon when this releases. There has to be balance, so you can choose a gun that isn’t a shotgun and still actually do damage.

            E3 2015: ‘Doom’ is a Modern Old-School Shooter

            http://gamerant.com/doom-impressions-e3-2015-113/

            Quoted from Marty Stratton E3 2015

            “That devotion to tradition isn’t just aesthetic; the id Software team really wants to make a game that feels like the original. According to Stratton, the game is hard; if it looks easy, that’s only because the developers who conducted the demos have spent a ton of time with the game. As in the original game, DOOM’s hero will carry all of his weapons with him; no need to pick and choose. In most modern shooters, health refills automatically. In DOOM, players need to collect health boosts from downed enemies, which adds an extra layer of strategy: if a player is low on health, his or her best bet is to “find the weakest guy, and take him out.”

            You were saying ?

          If you weren’t good with a weapon you adapt, and learn how to play with it… I’m questioning balance on this game when the entire team spawns with rocket launchers (which kills in 2 direct hits and have aoe) and the maps are 80% tight corridors.

            April 18, 2016 at 11:31

            I can personally say that the Rocket Launcher in DOOM is nowhere near as strong as the shotgun. One rocket does 55 damage, direct hit. That means with any armour, and any pickups during the fight, it easily takes 6 – 8 rockets to get a kill. By that time the guy with the shotgun has already raked in 2 kills, with a 3rd almost in the bag.

            Yes. That is so far my only real frustration with the game. The weapon balancing. It’s really, really bad.

            Everything else was spot on though. The gameplay, the pace etc. Everything. So with some balancing and tweaks, that’ll be fixed.

          • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

            April 18, 2016 at 11:42

            Nope, they got the pacing right, but the loadouts? They promised an old school shooter frantic twitch based gameplay, this weekend wasn’t that, maybe if there were more demons, it’d be able to make me want to play it more and forgive the nerfing and the “Oh you’re not allowed approach” but currently, it’s definitely not a day one sale…

          • Pariah

            April 18, 2016 at 11:45

            Actually, the gameplay was exactly frantic twitch-based. Changing the one mechanic to remove RNG and make the game more frantic? Good choice imho.

            Also remember, this is just MP. SP is going to be a huge factor as well.

          • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

            April 18, 2016 at 11:51

            You’re right, this is only the MP side so far, but I honestly don’t like the leveling system, it really just covers the game in the crap that has been injected into the industry the last few years, I can already see the MTs boil over like a Tsunami hitting the Easter Islands…

    I can appreciate the idea with the loadouts, but maybe just make it a separate game mode. It doesn’t have to be scrapped completely, we just want the old school vibe back. Everything feels the same these days.
    In all honesty, I actually don’t care much for the MP. This game is all about the SP. Doom always has been.

      Can’t help but feel those negative reviews make a good point.
      Except for the mod thing.

            I just have a real appreciation for cars, engines and fun 😀
            But seriously, I can spend a lot of time on a racing game. But proper racing games are the best.

            Cars are like horse carriages. There to make sure you’re not wet when you arrive at your destination. Bikes, now they’re the horses. That’s where the fun is.

            Saying that, why in the actual hell would I play a racing/riding game, when I can just open my garage and get the real thing? 😀

            Oh, I do enjoy motorcycles myself. Had a few growing up. And I cannot disagree there one bit. Never enjoyed motorcycle games much though.

            But I enjoy racing games for the tracks and the cars you don’t get to use in real life and competing with friends just as poor as you in F1 cars that you’ll never get to drive 😀 My wife and I are big lovers of F1 though, she’s been lucky enough to have watched a few growing up. Silverstone, Monaco, Monza. I’m really good at hiding my jealousy. :/

            Damn man. I meant gun loadouts!

            Well, you joke, but this is pretty much what the last Most Wanted NFS was all about. Drive around and find cars randomly just standing around for you to take.
            Thanks for confirming just how stupid that game was 😀

      • GooseZA

        April 18, 2016 at 11:00

        That is so stupid. The whole point of an old school arena shooter was learning the maps, learning where the power ups, armour and weapons were and how often they spawned etc. Sure, sometimes you get unlucky and spawn near a gun you suck with but so what. Life is hard and then you get railgunned.

        This is really surprising and disappointing, especially after all the talk about going back to old school bla bla bla.

          But that’s exactly my point as well, you spawn near a weapon you suck and you learn to be better with it, with this loadout k#k you go into this weapon bubble where you always play with the one weapon because it’s either OP or OP. Every body case and points at CoD with good reason.

    I tried it. It was fun, but I have to agree it’s not Doom. When I think Doom, Quake, Unreal etc (all the old school shooters) it wasn’t about persk and loadouts. It was about rushing around, picking up weapons and using them when you find them.

    This isn’t old school. This is a modern day Doom. As a game it’s good. As a call back to the old days. Well it fails miserably.

    Perhaps there will be other more regular modes once out. But I don’t like the concept that someone who has more time than me will yet again have better perks to use simply because they have more time while I sit back and watch people be far superior in every way with no way of leveling the play field.

    At least with oldschool everyone had the same everything. It was just skill and it was a type of gampeplay that lends itself to more casual and kick back and relax play. This new way of doing things with RPG elements built in just means that it’s not in any form for the kick back player. It’s for the competitive player only. That’s unfortunately where games are now adays.

      Also performance is shite.

      I couldn’t run it in SLI at all. It simply wouldn’t load. Single card performance was low 20s for most parts with dips as low as 1 -2 FPS on a 560Ti.

      I know my card is old, but the game didn’t look that amazing and that complex with details. My setup can run Witcher 3 on high. So hopefully at launch the performance issues are resolved.

    Say what you want, i enjoyed the beta. I got my pre-order started on Saturday. While it may not be going all the way back to doom’s roots. It is still a breathe of fresh air to me, considering the fact we have had too much COD. I had a blast this weekend with the beta. I love the feel, the look, the gameplay and the maps. I’m looking forward to the release.

    ” so what encourages you to explore the map and dominate it? Nothing.” I’m sorry but I thought you had to pick up health ammo and armor to survive, as well as running for the demon rune and power weapons. That reviewers sounds as ignorant as you can get. In the time I’ve played, I know where every power up is, where demon runes spawn, and where and how to travel the map to not get killed. Want to know how I know? I had to traverse the map to SURVIVE.

      Cool story bro you are a young padawan it seems. Having 2 guns and a special must seem normal to you.

      Yup the COD generation wont understand but dont worry the rest of us that remember what Doom really was agrees with all the bad reviews.

      What was that about being ignorant ???
