Doom Eternal is a fast-paced first-person shooter, and only a small number of games can live up to the high expectations of diehard fans.
The single-player campaign in DOOM.Eternal is one of the best of this generation. The stunning aesthetics and fluid framerate were created to make the most of each platform.
Unlike its predecessors, Eternal does away with modern gameplay concepts such as cover shooting and stealth in favor of old school run and gun. Using the surroundings to take down foes as efficiently as possible in adrenaline-inducing gunfights is still a major focus of the game’s strategy and tactics.
Even while the single-player adventures in DOOM have to finish eventually, there are a number of excellent options for aficionados of the game.
In order to fulfill their murdering desires, Eternal.
10 Shadow Warrior 2
Cooperative and single-player modes are available in the 2016 release of Shadow Warrior 2, an old-school shooter. Players assume control of an assassin with the ability to kill and dismember his targets in this bloody, fast-paced shooter.
In the same vein as DOOM.
When it comes to combat, Shadow Warrior is all about speed and brutality. The arsenal of weapons, ranging from knives to rifles, is impressive to wield and easily rivals DOOM in terms of gore and guts.
9 Quake 4
Quake 4 was released as a launch title for the Xbox 360 and PC in 2005, using the same engine id Tech 4 as DOOM 3. A team better known for its Call of Duty titles produced the game but id Software was responsible for overseeing its development.
Fans of the DOOM series will like Quake 4, a sci-fi horror shooter that feels and plays like it was formed from the same DNA.
8 Prey (2006)
3D Realms created the first Prey in 2006, using the DOOM 3 engine. If you’re a fan of the DOOM series, you’ll enjoy this sci-fi horror shooter.
Prey is a violent, brutal, and well-designed game that features an alien invasion premise with excellent gameplay and level design. Crab-like alien organisms instead of grenades, and other organic weaponry that players can become disgustingly creative with are among the game’s unique armaments.
7 Necromunda: Hired Gun
When Necromunda.Hired Gun first came out, it was panned by critics for its numerous glitches and lackluster side quests. In the Warhammer 40K universe, which has now been patched, the game has a lot to offer.
While the stages are beautifully constructed, the gunplay is frantic and aggressive. The protagonist of the game is nimble and well-armed, with the ability to wall run, leap long distances, and use his cybernetic fighting dog. Single-player narrative gunplay is primarily inspired by Titanfall 2, while multiplayer gunplay is reminiscent of Prey from 2006.
6 Serious Sam 3
Serious Sam 3 was developed by Croteam, an independent firm, and released on PC initially, with console ports following a year later. Fast-paced 3D shooters and Cannon’s 1980s B movie action films are an homage to the style of the game.
Serious Sam’s sense of humor may not resonate with everyone, but the action is on par with the DOOM series. Id Software’s shooter fans will feel right at home defeating waves of monstrous and demonic opponents including the Beheaded Kamikaze, Scrapjak, and the Beheaded Rocketeer.
5 Syndicate 2012
Syndicate is a cyberpunk first-person shooter and a revival of the iconic real-time strategy series of the same name from the 1990s. It was released in 2012 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. There are no demons or other hellspawn to fight with in Syndicate’s gunplay, but that doesn’t detract from the game’s overall style, violence, and speed.
As in DOOM, Syndicate’s shooting is fast, impactful, and strategic, requiring players to think quickly in order to survive the level of violence. For starters, DOOM.Eternal players will be more satisfied with the game’s nasty arsenal, which can kill adversaries in a number of ways.
4 The Darkness 2
When it was released in 2012, The Darkness 2 was created by Starbreeze Studios and released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. After being developed by Digital Extremes, the sequel to The Darkness has a very different kind of gameplay from the original. As compared to Starbreeze’s efforts, The Darkness 2 is more of a pure shooting experience from beginning to end.
Players take on the role of demonically possessed mobster Jackie Estacado in this game based on the comic book series of the same name. But Jackie’s Darkness abilities steal the spotlight from the action. Fans of DOOM will love the multitude of ways he can dismember his enemies in close quarters.
3 Wolfenstein The New Order And The New Colossus
Two years apart, in 2014 and 2017, The New Order and its sequel, The New Colossus, were released. There are significant distinctions between Wolfenstein and DOOM in terms of themes. Wolfenstein has a stronger focus on character development and a level design that caters to a wider range of playing styles.
Those who are lovers of Doom and Wolfenstein will appreciate Wolfenstein’s rich history and retro aesthetic. For lovers of Doom, there are massive boss encounters, a brutally vicious combat system, and considerable replayability to be had here.
2 Killing Floor 2
A year after its first release on PC and PlayStation 4, Killing Floor 2 made its way to Xbox One. In the same vein as DOOM. When playing the retro-style shooter Eternal, players must use fast thinking and strategy to survive the hordes of undead and monsters swarming at their heels.
It’s not a bad tale, but for fans of the DOOM series, this is standard operating procedure. They’re here for the fast-paced, brutal action and the heavy metal soundtrack. With its character customization and co-op gameplay, Killing Floor 2 also has its own unique features.
1 Rage 2
Rage 2 is a post-apocalyptic shooter inspired by Mad Max and developed by DOOM creators id Software and Just Cause studios Avalanche Studios together in 2019. It’s fair to point out that Rage 2’s characters and story aren’t without flaw. Fans of the original, on the other hand, are well aware of what to expect and are drawn in by the action in any new Rage game.
It’s not just DOOM enthusiasts who will enjoy Rage 2’s savage gunplay and weapon variety.
Eternal. A savage power fantasy, Rage 2’s shooting is satisfying, straightforward, and always enjoyable.
