Have you ever had a day where you wondered what it would be like to take an unimaginable trip to Hell? For id Software and their 2016 release of DOOM just happens to reflect that experience. Not only are each of its levels uniquely designed, each of them feels like living and breathing entities thanks to id Softwares atmospheric artists. Because of their attention to detail, each level feels like a character of its own due to how the overall story alters each one as players make their way through their through the game.

In this latest release, DOOM is an astonishing piece, one where the team’s artistic nature comes to life. Demons are disturbing as one could imagine, almost as if someone had dragged them from the very pits of Hell itself, and the terrain is brutal, even grotesque where the two worlds begin to emerge. But what’s more astonishing is the fact that everything flows together quite well. Demonic creatures feel natural even with their UAC-themed modifications such as the tall, skeletal, and technologically advanced Revenant, a creature that only seems possible in a nightmare.

Along with their designs for their creatures, every single area comes out as impressive set pieces, ones balanced between the landscapes of Hell and the technologically advanced UAC Mars Base. While many may not know this till they experience it, DOOM is by far one of the best-designed games on the market and its approach to graphics and animation are top-notch no matter the platform the game is played on.
