GSY Video PS4 Xbox One PC

The embargo on DOOM Eternal's reviews is now lifted, but because we were only sent our Xbox One copy of the game yesterday, we didn't have time to write anything. As a compensation, we've prepared 2 videos showing bits of the first 2 missions on Xbox One X. Right from the start, this sequel is pretty challenging so you are likely to die a bunch of times in the sequences which have you face several waves of enemies for a given time. If you want to survive the game, you'll have to use the new mechanics wisely, as using the chainsaw will grant you ammo whereas shooting down demons or punching them to death will allow you to refill your life gauge. As for armor, a new tool makes it possible for you to burn down enemies which then drop armor (and even more if you keep firing at them). The only problem we had was when we found ourselves without ammo while the last remaining monster could not be attacked with the chainsaw, which was a bit tricky as the game never thought it would be wise to spawn trash mobs to avoid such a situation...
Update: Second video added.

I think the gamma is set just a touch too high.

I was skeptical of the new armor's coloring but it reacts nicely to the lighting

I enjoyed Doom 2016, but I am not sure I really care to play more.

Watched the videos and I see what you mean, it's like an effect is missing. I don't remember the game looking like that in the recent preview videos, maybe there's a graphical bug somewhere ?

Didn't mean to say it was anything else. But it's possible on some displays, the default looks a big high? I can say that on an OLED, it seems to be for me.

Possibly, I don't know really. Now the game also supports HDR so if your TV is compatible maybe it'll look better for you.
