Default Hands-on with the new Doom: The detail of Doom 3, the speed of Doom 2

Cyberdemons aside, the two Doom matches I tried quickly congealed into a slick six minutes of explosions and emancipated body parts. The only other negative bits were a few unfortunate solitary periods when my teammates resorted to asking, "Where is everybody?" over the headsets. I wondered the same thing as I found myself wandering for upwards of 20 whole seconds without even seeing them.

Perhaps Id Software has yet to find the proper blend of old school mechanical speed and new school engagement pacing to keep everyone bunched together. In any case, the lulls were rare and short-lived enough to not get in the way of the rest of the excitement. This is a very promising start for a very storied franchise. So far, Doom is fast, exciting, and, most importantly, fun.
