Having a PlayStation Network account gives you so much more than just access to new games. By being a member of gaming community, you have a chance to win prizes, exchange items and directly influence future games by rating them and commenting on their performance. PlayStation Network releases games every month and this month we finally have the long-awaited Doom 3 sequel. If you haven’t played previous parts of the game now is the time to start as the story is not entirely connected with previous chapters of the game.
You’ve probably seen the trailer and saw how amazing it looks, and those game footages were not cinematic, they were pure fast paces gameplay. You can get the game on PSN by paying for it, or you can use your PSN vouchers to unlock it. If you haven’t acquired your PSN codes, yet you can do it on websites like these either by completing a survey or contributing to gaming industry otherwise. The game itself looks stunning, and it works really fast. The game development company id refused to try to create something new. Instead, they decided to stick to what they do best- creating a blood and gore FPS with intense gameplay. New abilities never seen before in Doom trilogy such as Glory Kills were implemented in the gameplay. These special finishing moves are short in-game cinematics that eliminates enemies in most gruesome ways, in most cases removing their limbs and bashing their sculls with it. The best thing about it is that it doesn’t interrupt the momentum of a killing spree, as it feels natural and easy to use.
Concerning the multiplayer itself, there are a couple of modifications that are new to this kind of gaming. Players are now able to create maps in the map editor and add any mode to it including something that may resemble a Capture the Flag mode, classic Deathmatch as well as Team Deathmatch and Domination mode. There are also a couple of new things that are added to a point-reward system that enables players to earn money in order to buy guns and weapon upgrades at vending machines. The possibilities are limitless with map editor mode, and the only problem is that every map is currently limited to four players. And playing a Capture the Flag mode two-on-two doesn’t bring much excitement to the game.
The game is becoming increasingly popular as we speak, and minor flaws like the multiplayer mode and some aspect of it should be changed with upcoming updates. But Doom was never primarily a multiplayer game. The whole reason why this game became so successful in the past is that it had a quality fast-paced singleplayer that brought the gaming experience that most singleplayer games don’t have. Exploring the facilities on Mars or depth of hell, every second of this game you think about how to get more weapons and where to find better upgrades for them. Doom 2016 is definitely worth buying, and we hope to see more of it in future.
