I finished the game tonight. The campaign is staggeringly short, or at least it feels that way. I played through the game on Hard difficulty, but I should have opted for Nightmare (or whatever the hardest difficulty is called). The game is much too easy, even on Hard mode. I never had to juggle weapons or ammo at any point, since you can easily defeat everything in the game with just an assault rifle, and ammo is more than plentiful.
The combat had potential, but because there really was no reason at all to mix it up with special abilities or different weapons, it was left up to the player to decide if they wanted to go about things in a less efficient way for the sake of fun and diversity.
Anyway, I haven’t decided if I’ll try again on Nightmare difficulty, but maybe the hardest difficulty will force some thought and decision making into my approach to certain encounters, so that could actually make a redo worth it. All I know right now is Doom Eternal can’t come soon enough.
P.S. the ugly old lady that runs the Brawl TV arena things is without a doubt the most revolting character I’ve ever seen in a video game, bar none.
