Seemed lighter on the former and stuck on the latter.
The quick gore kill in 2016 was a nice bonus addition.
Somehow the design by focus group thought it was a good idea to add another 665 more bullshit stuff on top of it.
And suddenly it's a requirement to make fluffy kills rather than an occasional bonus.
And where did the humongous spaceship hub come from?
Nah this was a messy turd wrapped in doom wrapping.
Happy to forget it ever existed.
And yet it sits at a 92%/89% positive rating out of 3002/98,800 votes.
Yes it must most certainly be horrible because TorTorden and a few other gripey Bluesnewsers say it is.
Steam reviews will highly rate anything that isn't a buggy mess. Nah, the game isn't fun (for me). Once I saw the flying fireball chains from Mario I was out. The game was just barely treading water with me up to that point with all the platforming. That said, I was also a little lukewarm with Doom 2016 (which is why I bought Eternal at a steep discount) which overused (or rather abused) the monster arena trope. I'll stick with classic Doom and/or Brutal Doom.
