    It looks more vibrant and action-packed compared to the dark Doom 3. But it also looks more generic, while I would argue that Doom 3 had more of a distinct personality (even though it was so repetitive that it got boring after a while). That said, I do see that it's trying to get closer to the original. All in all, setting looks okay, but can't say I'm thoroughly impressed. Just another trailer that relies really heavy on fan-service.

    Also, the audience cheering for weapons is kinda dumb. It's not like you've never seen a shotgun in a game before :D

    Yes, those "Apple-like" applause was too much :)

    I like it. How faithful monster designs are to the original, how close it is to the overall feel of the original Doom...door sounds...also cool gameplay ideas...

    Well, cool gameplay ideas.. this all fairly standard, to be honest. Such special kills are not that special anymore. It all looks fairly average and not that outstanding, apart from the name.

    The mortal combat take down feature was perfect for this E3 demo - the crowd went wild over it. I have to admit I was impressed with it also. I like the wall climbing and the hands being visible when interacting with the environment and during the take downs. It was a very well done feature despite taking control over the player at times.

    The double jump feature made the game feel like street fighter/mortal combat game in another way. It seems they are trying to blend multiple elements from those street fighter games into Doom. I'm not sure why they decided to do this but it all seems to work pretty well.

    Overall I am impressed with what is shown in this E3 demo of the new Doom.

    So how much are you hyped for this?
    After seeing the devs playing it on a stream I actually got my hopes up.
    It seems like they have added lot of flags to remove all features like glory kills so you can play it like original Doom with some improvements to gameplay.,.

    I've very hyped, but I haven't played a modern game since...almost never.
    I have a new comp though...but still, I probably will never play it.

    The most important thing it needs to do is be fun. It won't reinvent the wheel or anything, but my biggest complaint about Doom 3 is that it was repetitive and just plain boring after a while. As long as it's fast-paced and a blast to play, it'll be fine.
