Amid Evil Preview

Two years ago, the overwhelming reaction to id Software’s amazing Doom reboot confirmed that there is a very real thirst, in this day and age, for old-school, fast-paced, no-BS shooters. No more huddling behind the nearest waist-high wall and occasionally popping my head out to fire at a distant gunner. I want to get out there, feel the wind in my face, and look my enemies in the eyes before I gib them messy. I’m still waiting for the rest of the triple-A industry to catch up in this regard – even Bethesda’s own Wolfenstein series leans a little too heavily on stealth and other such nonsense – but in the meantime, a number of indie devs have heeded the call.


DOOM VFR Review

I Am The Weapon

HIGH Watching a Mancubus’ spine flop around after leveling it with a particle beam.

LOW Trying to navigate levels with the Move controllers.

WTF Just ten original DOOM levels? Can you please sell me the rest?


Doom Review (Switch)

 Hell To Go

HIGH Doom on a handheld! And it’s okay!

LOW The font size is way too small for the Switch’s screen.

WTF I’m still distracted by the “demonic voice” sounding like Dr. Claw.
