It's essentially the same deal as the new Wolfenstein: it takes what made the original work, adds a fresh coat of paint and updates the mechanics a bit, but not at the cost of losing the spirit and feel of the original game.
You move fast, shoot demons non stop with a variety of weapons, explore a bit if you want in search of secrets, then go back to killing demons non stop.
You can upgrade your suit (meaning more ammo, damage resist and so on), and you can unlock mods for the guns that are essentially alternate fire modes, but that's it: it's all Doom, in its gory demonic carnage filled glory.
The only clusterfucks potential here are the melee kills (that you can turn off if you want, but they are fun and add a bit of a tactical aside to the killing) and the multiplayer, which is essentially doom/quake with some added powers and mechanics.
The map making tool seems to be amazing, and the potential for user created content is pretty huge.
In short, this is pretty much what Doom 3 should had been: a relentless, fun and gory FPS.
And the love/respect for the original is everywhere.
It's pretty much a huge fuck you to modern FPS, showing that classic gameplay never goes out of style.
Is it deep or complex? Nope, but it's the most fun I've had with a FPS in ages.
