  1. I've only faced 2 of them and already dred fighting what I can imagine is next. I'm hoping I'll at least only see 1 at a time, but I'm doubting I'll be that lucky.
  2. I did read that before fighting him for the first time but he kicked my ass until I watched a vid and read up more on it. If you get just 1 meter too far back of him all hell breaks lose and you can quickly get overwhelmed. By fighting him the way you describe it certainly made his demise easier. I think in the difficulty level I'm playing, lowest, I need 8 SSG shots to down him. The real fun comes when there's 8-10 other AI fighting around you and the Marauder!!!

    Is anybody else seriously disappointed with Eternal?

    Good grief you guys must be really, really, really good. I met my first marauder last night playing on the lowest difficulty setting and was getting my ass kicked. I finally gave up and watched a vid and logged back on to beat it. I can't imagine what the end boss will be like. My biggest amazement is how you all can be playing at those levels and handling it with ease.
  4. I did this mission last night, what a fun, exciting and difficult mission it was. So much damn fun!!! Your playstyle is what I'm trying to get to. I keep trying to be more careful and standing in one place too long and we know what happens when we do that. Doom games are the only ones where it's ok to Rambo!!!!! Great vid!

    I think a lot of people are in the boat I am. You can both love some aspects and feel disappointed about some others in this or any other game. Either doesn't exclude one from sharing those feelings on a forum such as this. Nobody forced me to play Doom Eternal since I've played Doom all my life it was a normal thing to do. I'm pretty sure people don't buy games thinking "I'm going to hate every minute of this", if they do, then there's something else going on in their life that needs to be addressed. I play all assortment of games and rate them critically on the various forum sites. My hope is you don't think people come on here and try to "convince others to dislike things", that's not what a forum is for and I don't see that happening on any of the ones I participate in.

    Yes, and I can attest to that...

    Elimination of "Hey, Not Too Rough"

    To the point of making it so the gameplay is not fun anymore? There appears to be a fine line there and as I'm getting older I find myself wanting to have fun more than the frustration. I didn't used to be that way. I can't tell you how many games I gutted through at higher difficulties just to one-up my buddies.

    Elimination of "Hey, Not Too Rough"

    Well I'm not sure I'd be the one to relate to but I have played shooters all my life (61 now). I mainly play games like The Division, Borderlands, Destiny (used to play that one, that is), COD of course, and I had to downgrade the difficulty to "I'm too young to die" myself. I started out at "Hurt me plenty" but it was just too much. I'm having a hell of a good time as for me its just the right amount of hysteria that I can handle. There's absolutely no shame in enjoying a game, having fun with it, and if it's more frustrating than fun you won't regret downgrading the difficulty. Hope it works out for your brother. Oh, I play on Xbox as well and I really think this game is more suited to a PC as far as twitch controls are concerned. Let us know what he decides to do.

    Hahahaha, he speaks the truth and the platforming does blow IMO. I'm not sure it needs to be in a game where slaughtering is the main focus.

    I'm 5-6 hours in so far and can see where you're coming from. I was hoping I wasn't the only one thinking the platforming was way, way over the top. I can't tell you how many times I died trying to jump around the mountain with the fire lake, over and over and over again. Or the monkey bar deal where you have to hit a lever and get to the bar and to wherever you're going before it times out. I didn't think this stuff was in the 2016 version I played. Or wasting 30 minutes figuring out I didn't have to waste a burst to get to the bar because if I did I couldn't get to the target wall. Good lord that was frustrating. I loved the gunplay and the visuals and the overall environment. I can take or leave the way the story is doled out as most games seem to be going this way. I read the tiles for the first couple of hours and then decided to not waste my time anymore. One other thing. I'm 61 so I don't know if that has anything to do with it or not, but I'm playing at the lowest difficulty and some areas are seriously insanely difficult. I cannot imagine playing this at any higher level.
