Does It Launch

  • Alt+Tab, I dare ya.
  • I double dare ya.
  • I’ve had two spite crashes in six hours of play and they were, abrupt.

Performance @ 1080

  • If you told me the target for 1080 High was 130 I would believe it.
  • Out of morbid curiosity is does a whopping 45 @ 2160 on High.


  • Not a single glitch wich is impressive considering the DXVK moon magic taking place under the hood.


  • Tight and responsive WASD.
  • Gets extra praise since WINE games always feel a bit… off.


Does It Launch

  • The alt tab thing is real
  • Also after about an hour the game just ate shit and froze. Hasn’t happened since

Performance @ 1080

  • I switched it to Vulkan right away and I maintained a solid 105@UHD for the entire ttime.
  • That vulkan performance
  • I don’t want to play this at not UHD


  • It’s doom


  • I wasd. Doomguy moves
  • I mouse, doomguy looks
  • I click, doomguy shoots


Does It Launch

  • On first launch it said it couldn’t find default.cfg
  • After reading the forums, you need to use the Steam Runtime for it to work.
  • Enabled the Runtime, FATAL ERROR: Loading unverified resource
  • Verify the game files, another 7.9GB download on top of the 59.5GB it took originally.
  • Then Steam kept failing to apply the changes, so I had to uninstall the game and let it redownload overnight.
  • For a supposedly whitelisted game, this is a shitshow.

Performance @ 1080

  • With everything on Ultra, minus motion blur because fuck motion blur, it holds 120-200 FerPS
  • At 4k with the same settings it seems to hover between 90 and 130.


  • I’ve seen some god awful motion blur but never one which has two different levels for Low, Medium and High in two separate parts of the menu.
  • It’s also so bad it was making my eyes hurt.
  • Off is where it is and where it should be.


  • Yeah, no. This was fine

QA Score



  • Venn:
    • FSM damn this game is addictive.
    • Six hours of squeeeeee for $9.
    • Press F to pay respects.
    • I even like the minigames.
    • It’s DOOM, not some flashlight booga booga jump-scare bullsh*t but DOOM.
    • Only turned to 14.
    • It’s got enough story to keep me interested and the glory kills are a nice touch.
    • It does take a moment to recalibrate when you are getting swarmed.
    • I had to switch my brain meats into Q3 Arena mode for that business.
    • It has a basic skill-tree and weapons upgrade system and speaking of weapons.
    • Yeah, all your old favourites are back and the game does a nice job of doling them out.
    • Getting the BFG took a minute because I am not a clever man.
    • The chainsaw has been reduced to a FK IT button that turns baddies into a weapon and ammo pinata.
    • Music is a modern take on the classic riffs and kicks in at the appropriate time.
    • At the end of the day (take that shot) DOOM 2016 is one thing, a FKN blast.
    • P.S. Shield guys can eat a bag of dicks, twice.
  • Jordan
    • I always joke about needing more shooters on linux. But if we can get some like this natively, please bring them on
    • Let’s be real here, everyone already sucked this game’s dick last year, and it’s well deserved
    • Proton aside, the performance using Vulkan is terrific
    • The game is just fun. It’s an exceptionally well done and polished shooter
    • Murdering stuff is fun, beating shit to death with your bare mits is fun and even doing a fred durst impression with the chain saw is fun
  • Pedro
    • After the shitshow which was getting it to run and the absolutely horrendous shitstain that was motion blur, I was about ready to give this game several new assholes for me to proceed to have sex with.
    • But after 30 minutes of uninterrupted shooting and maiming, I found myself sitting on the edge of my chair, face glued to the screen and grinning like a lunatic.
    • Wasn’t a big fan of the downtime between the high paced shooty bits, but then again pacing is important.
    • Those bits of downtime are there to help you enjoy the shooty bits even more.
    • Though, the shooting itself feels kinda pointless when your mighty fist of spine bendiness seems to be the most effective weapon at your disposal.
    • It reminded me a little of how effective the kick was in the original release of Dead Island and in Dark Messiah of Might and Magic.
    • But goddamn it’s fun!
