Poll Time: Do you like DOOM Open Beta?

I wasn’t expecting much of this multiplayer beta. Actually I even forgot about it, launched it this morning and I was really surprised to see how much of a Call of Duty clone this is.

Stick to Unreal Tournament open alpha if you’re looking for a good, modern arena shooter.
