Review: Doom Eternal

Warning: This review may contain spoilers.

I have a complicated relationship with Doom Eternal.

In Episode 079 of WDGRPodcast, I spoke at length about the game, and listeners may notice that I was constantly conflicted – for everything it did that I loved, it did something I hated. It’s this duality and confusion that frustrates me to this day.
