Developed by id software, the studio that pioneered the first-person shooter genre and created multiplayer Deathmatch, DOOM returns as a brutally fun and challenging modern-day shooter experience. Relentless demons, impossibly destructive guns, and fast, fluid movement provide the foundation for intense, first-person combat – whether you’re obliterating demon hordes through the depths of Hell in the single-player campaign, or competing against your friends in numerous multiplayer modes. Expand your gameplay experience using DOOM SnapMap game editor to easily create, play, and share your content with the world.
You’ve come here for a reason. The Union Aerospace Corporation’s massive research facility on Mars is overwhelmed by fierce and powerful demons, and only one person stands between their world and ours. As the lone DOOM Marine, you’ve been activated to do one thing – kill them all.
A Relentless Campaign
There is no taking cover or stopping to regenerate health as you beat back Hell’s raging demon hordes. Combine your arsenal of futuristic and iconic guns, upgrades, movement and an advanced melee system to knock-down, slash, stomp, crush, and blow apart demons in creative and violent ways.
Return of id Multiplayer
Dominate your opponents in DOOM’s signature, fast-paced arena-style combat. In both classic and all-new game modes, annihilate your enemies utilizing your personal blend of skill, powerful weapons, vertical movement, and unique power-ups that allow you to play as a demon.

Without any previous experience or special expertise, any player can quickly and easily snap together and visually customize maps, add pre-defined or completely custom gameplay, and even edit game logic to create new modes. Instantly play your creation, share it with a friend, or make it available to players around the world – all in-game with the push of a button.
I had the beta on Steam but really didn't crank it up but one time and when I saw "multiplayer" I closed it out as I'm not really much on multiplayer games. I wasn't going to get the game, but something told me to take a chance and see. So I ordered it. It's a Steam game so if you have Steam you can activate it with the numbers in the game box and it starts downloading. It takes awhile if you brought the DVD version as it comes with one DLC pack which adds to the size to download. (Mine showed something like 40-50 gigs with the pack but I understand if you just have the game, it's around 38 gigs.) Since I have cable broadband this didn't brother me to much but if your running something else then it might be a hassle. Anyway, after getting it down and finished installing, I cranked it up. Like most games today, it take a bit to load as you go thru two menus but what I liked right off the bat is the number of items you can tweak if you want. I also noted that all I had to really change was the brightest and that was it. I launched the game and realized right away that I'm going to have to get used to this! Since I use a Xbox 360 pad, I was pleased to note I had no problems getting into the action at all. The game plays very well on my system and the biggest problem I had was learning how to stay alive at first. I'm working on the single player game, and I must admit, I've really liked what I've seen so far. This isn't your old Doom or even your old Doom 3 but a sort updated Doom. The idea of gaining health by ripping demons apart I found a bit interesting.reply
