But the re-imagining of this classic shooter from id Software doesn’t aim to simply be a rehash of what we’ve played before. Instead, it’s a slick-looking next generation game that stays true to its old school roots.
On the heels of Microsoft lowering the cost of the Xbox One by $100, video game hardware sales in June more than doubled the totals of the prior year, coming in at $292.7 million last month, according to the NPD Group.
Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage’s “so bad, it’s campy” reading of the already-dumb line “That wizard came from the moon” was a standout part of the game’s early trial.

Noriega, in a lawsuit filed Tuesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court, alleged the game made him out to be “a kidnapper, murderer and enemy of the state” – and he wants a cut of the game’s profits as compensation.
