    Disclaimer: I have not played the game
    After reading what most of the folks are saying here as well as many user reviews on steam, it seems this new Doom is going in a very different direction than the core Doom tried-and-trusted gameplay: people play Doom to kill everything that moves without a care in the world. It's a pure adrenaline rush and letting off steam. They don't want to be told how to play it, don't require a complex backstory, intricate puzzles, platforming, elaborate dialogue/cutscenes, etc
    I believe one user summed it up:
    As Minos said, I'll wait until a steam sale with considerable price reduction before buying it.

    Doom 2016 the moment there was dialogue/cutscene within the first 2 minutes Doom Guy punched it away. Hell yeah.
    In Doom Eternal, it feels like there's a cutscene every 2 minutes. What really confused me was when Doom guy walked into a room with those 3 priest guys or whatever the fuck they are and just stood there looking at them. Why am I stood there, just fucking kill them? Oh they're gone now, time for more talking. Hell no.
    Ok there's this dude in a cave with big guns. Who the fuck is this guy? What the fuck is going on? Stop talking! I don't care! Why am I not killing?
    How did I get in this giant pussy patrol fortress? No I'm not about to read 10 encyclopedia entries on this badly designed and presented menu system to find out.
    Why is this a hub game now? What was wrong with kicking in a door and screaming RIP AND TEAR TIME TIMMY
    What's that buddy? You were starting to enjoy the combat a bit more? Yeah nah sorry guy. Here, swing off this bright yellow pole instead onto this floating climable concrete coffin that falls out of the sky. Oh also no you can't jump over there even though it totally looks like you can. Lol sorry, try again.
    No you can't fight that way, you have to do it this way and only this way or you will die a lot.
     
    I'm trying so hard to like the game but it just keeps fighting me all the way.

    What I don't understand is they stripped all of this excess and unnecessary weight out of doom 2016 then added it all back in for eternal

    It doesn't suck but it's a big disappointment for me personally.

    Yeah, it definitely doesn't suck. Let's say it's a bit of a different take similar to how Doom 3 was.

    I think it’s an OK game at best. 5/10.
    Level design is quite boring, especially the non-combat traversal. Exploration/secrets are predictable.  Enemies are tankier than what I’d like for them to be. Glory kills and chainsaw kills are tedius while at the same time absolutely necessary due to running out of ammo constantly.
    The perhaps biggest design flaw is introducing a boss and then taking you out of the action so the game can explain how to beat it..
    I don’t see myself continue playing, not having fun with it.

    This is a really disappointing sequel to 2016. It feels like they added in ALL of the stuff Doom 2016 did away with, for some reason? Because 'sequel'? I really loved Doom 2016 but this one is just a mess, in my opinion.

    I do love the combat and glory kill stuff, but the sheer amount of upgrades, weapon mods, buttons to learn (I remap my keys in every game to use arrow keys.. Don't ask), things to juggle.. Plus they show every damn encounter on the map, so all sense of suspense is lost, and you know exactly when an arena battle is coming up. It's really weird. I think games are great when they try to mask the gaminess of what you're playing, but this one feels like a designer just splurged all over it and didn't tidy it up afterwards. Like, the bar in the top right. I think that shows you how many encounters you've done? Jesus, talk about removing any sense of suspense. Am I near the end of the level? Oh I'll just check my magic meter in the top right. Maybe I'm wrong there? Seems weird.

    Also, the story, holy shit. Who gives a fuck? It's Doom. I know I'm gonna absolutely kick ass and destory everything I come across, so why are these demon masterminds acting like they've got the one up on me? They should be absolutely shit scared of me, not making speeches like they have the upper hand. Also, the cutscenes suck. Doomguy looks about 3 foot tall, he looks like an action figure lol. Put all the cutscenes completely in first person - put me in the action at all times. 
    I think I just beat the 4th level, the snowy one? But I'm putting the game down now, I have no interest in continuing. I played Doom 2016 continuously and beat it in like 2 days. So I'm not just shitting on the series - something just isn't quite right with this sequel.

    I just can't get into it. I'm not enjoying all the super mario platforming, the story I've got no idea what's going on and who people are and why there are so many cutscenes. I just quit out of frustration through running out of ammo. "uPgRadE yOuR sTuFf" Ok, but I wanna shoot dudes, not play an RPG - there's so much stuff to upgrade. Dooms about the killing and im not having fun. I'll keep going but I'm a bit disappointed, it all looked so cool in the trailers  Cool if other's are having a blast glad they like it, it's very well put together but I'm just nah atm.

    Man what a confusing shit show that was. I, like everyone else was sat there refreshing the page waiting for it to go on sale. The moment it did I slammed that order button faster than an angry blizzard fan review bombing warcraft 3 refunded. A load of errors came up and that was that. Huh? Did it work? Did I order one? No checkout, no nothing. Panic at the disco! Go back to the page and it just says "ordered" Aight? Check my emails, got an email saying I have ordered an index. Sweet! How do I pay for it, what's going on? Can steam work? No? What the fuck is happening? Ok! Look at purchase history and the index is sat at the top saying " order in-process" or whatever. So turns out you don't pay right away (???) but valve sends you an email a week before it's dispatched or whatever saying "Ok we now deem it suitable for you to pay us, peasant." Yes my lords, right away my lords, whatever you say. Just gimme that sweet sweet half life vr.
    My estimate is: ships in 2-4 weeks.
