    I think you might be disappointed with this game then if multiplayer is anything to go by.
    No in-game weapon drops, you loadout your class before the round aka COD.
    The longer you play, the better perks you earn so you can start with more weapons and/or armour.

    This is not the doom the classic players wanted. It's tailored for the modern gamer

    **WE WANT PISTOL AND FIST TO START EVERY ROUND AND TAKE OUT THAT F***ING ROCKET LAUNCHING SKELETON!**

    I don't think you've played any of the original Doom games or the new beta judging by what you've just written.

    Sounds like fun. It's what expect from this game:

    No depth, just a mad roflstomp rush.

    That can be fun to from time to time.

    I played the beta and I can't recommend this game.

    There's no momentum, like in Quake series, where you had to consciously maintain your speed and direction. Weapon balance is meh. They may change it, but lightning gun makes other weapons look weak. 100+ lag for everybody except the host looks bad, at least for PC players. You can feel that the game has no raw mouse input. The graphics is kinda ok, but nowhere close to what we've seen on SP demos. The game itself hasn't crashed even once for me, so it's good. But having a huge "may run bad on nv cards" screen is unprofessional. On top of that, the sounds were garbled, like playing too fast. Effectively I had Doom: chipmunk edition. Perhaps it's not a terrible game, but why would you play it?

    And that's exactly my greatest problem with Doom - I can't say that the multiplayer aspect of this game is better than in Quake 3 Arena (especially with Promod), and it's nowhere close to UT 2003/2004. If you want to play such twitch games, I'd stay with the classics or try the upcoming Unreal Tournament.

    It needs more visual confirmation of whether someone is going to die or not when shooting them.

    Too often I would stop firing because I figured they would be dead and my eyes were scanning the screen for other targets.

    The reverse also happens, where I am still firing (miliseconds) and the target is dead - and I should have been scanning the screen for other targets instead of the 'double-tap rule' from Zombieland, where you should finish the job to be sure.

    So many other issues I have - like just WTF are the power-ups for? as the trailer seemed to be pretty clear and concise as to whether something was ammo or health, yet the beta appears to have objects which could very easily misinterpreted as part of the scenery or a trash can, or something.

    What are they?

    But that's not DOOM is it? Running around non-stop like a headless chicken! I can't remember DOOM gameplay being that bad?

    I think this sums it up on Steam:

    Positive (4,138) Negative (7,105)

    People are disappointed, its not a Doom we remember.

    I think all this will reflect to a singleplayer as well.

    You could be right. I was not overly impressed with this beta.

    Beta extended - Y'all can play today also!

    I personally didnt play the OBT since I've already tried the CBT. For me Doom isnt multiplayer, sure it was back in the days with Doom2 but that was very different. We didn't buy Doom 3 for MP right? Will be the same thing this time, for me at least.

    I'm sure idSoftware will do a much better job with MP when they announce Quake 5 (which they will at some point).

    I think this is a "test" by id and I think they can get away with bad MP since it's Doom and not Quake. I'm hope that they see our reactions and will go back to basics next time. Old School is what we want (worked well for Wolfenstein right?).
