This was one of those games I backed on Kickstarter a long time ago that had some serious promise to tell a good horror story and introduce some interesting mechanics to a new game series. It’s a sidescroller that tells a fun detective story. Overall a simple to play game not requiring much in the way of fast pace button mashing. A chill and thoughtful game that puts you into a Future filled with interesting characters and a story that makes you think about the world it’s introducing to you.

The bases of the game is to search for clues to progress the story. Action and horror wise it holds a silent creepy something is around the corner stalking you vibe to it. Personally I LOVE that feel. It’s very puzzle heavy in that you will be put into places that require you to remember places for items you check thru out the game. Take notes! Read logs and really it homes in on your ability to be a true detective.

Some of the puzzles are rather hard and a couple of em I found myself saying “DUH! Why didn’t I think of that!!”..which is exactly what you want out of game like this. It’s fun!

In terms of content I am pleased with it. It turned the gears in my head I wanted it too and really I hope we get more of this series in the future as it has a cool world to explore and a very interesting story to tell!

More Doom Eternal CONTENT!! What could possibly go wrong!!

So to begin with the DLC is in two parts which is fine but .. costly..20$ a pop.. Now the content for DLC 1 is pretty long and worth the money. You learn more about the lore, find some interesting puzzles and even deal with some new monsters. Which is fun and difficult as it’s adding to the story of Doom Eternal. So don’t expect an easy ride! If you didn’t finish Doom Eternal don’t play the DLC thinking it’s going to give you a learning curve… IT WON’T!

Much of what you learned from the base game is important to keep in mind for the DLC. You must be comfortable with using bombs, the chainsaw, understanding the weapon timing, and so on. The lore takes us into a interesting part of the lore and while I don’t want to spoil anything I WILL say it’s FILLED!! with content about the slayers past and the demons. Fun little details that I think make it worth the price point.

Part two introduces some new weapon mechanics, some newish..monsters?…kind of… puzzles and of course continues directly after DLC 1. It’s shorter in terms of content but brutally harder than DLC 1. You deal with a great deal coming at you and at times it can be frustrating but once you figure out patterns and again learn more about how everything works.. it’s fairly easy to progress.

Lots of crazy stuff happens in the lore with this DLC and it’s supppppper cool to see it all go down the way it does! However again it’s short and sweet. Personally I don’t know why they cut it up into two parts. It feels like 1 arch for the story but maybe cause of development…who knows? Do I think we will see a part 3….MAYBE!! but only time will tell…meh
