I am so glad that this is getting reprinted.
I am also so glad it's not an app driven. I like the 1vMany model.

I wouldn't call it reprinted. It is completely new design, thankfully.

The description reminds me of Gears of War, which would fit FFG's trend of reprinting/re-theming every one of their big box games.

I'm so glad they didn't just take the old game and slap new components on. Can't wait for this!

The new Doom video game was incredible, hopefully this will be too. Sadly my wife and I don't really enjoy 1 vs many games, but hey maybe there will be a full coop variant or something.

I certainly hope this isn't it, since I like the GoW system, but prefer co-op.

It does look interesting, however the thing I am most exited about is with this Bethesda license we may possibly see a Fallout boardgame! Could see them using the Descent/Imperial Assault system or maybe Runebound (3rd edition)

I'm happy for those of you wanting Doom the board game.

Having the "vintage" game and expansion (and very happy with it), I think I will pass on this updated version.

Looks a bit "too Gears Of War" for me... which I also have.

I really don't need a game which mashes the two together.

It's nice having two separate games with totally different mechanics.

I have no GoW and no original Doom (apart from PC version) so I will be glad to see this rendition regardless of originality or reworking. It should be slick, hopefully its gameplay is as well.

The only hopes for that is if they make an app for it (like they did for descent)

I don't mind app driven games, and I understand the appeal.

What I don't like are app-only games like X-Com and the upcoming Mansions of Madness 2E.

I prefer the approach they took with Descent.

I'm in the same camp. I prefer options.

Personally, I'd love to see an optional app that controls invaders.

So, out of curiosity, how does this differ from the original? I see comments to it being substantially redesigned, but (as an outside) it looks pretty much the same.

Naturally my perspective is skewed due to distance, so I wanted to ask the authorities.

Looks like they simplified the weapon mechanics significantly, which is wise methinks.

On the more confusing side though... It seems they reduced the number of enemy units that come in the box. For how quickly the recent video game seems to throw wave after wave of enemy at the player, it seems strange to reduce the number of units available for this. On the flipside, the game may not SEEM like it, but it has a limit of roughly twelve enemies out at a time -so I suppose it works, if FFG has figured out how to create the rapid fire "cannon fodder" effect that seems so prevalent in the latest video game. I'd actually be totally okay with weak starter enemies that can only take a shot or two as in the latest release, and are quickly replaced about as fast as players can dispose of them. Suppose I'll have to wait to hear more as release gets close later this year. In the meantime, I'm waiting for CSI to let me pre order this beast.

To be clear, I'm a fan of the original and it's expansion, and this is clearly different -even the dice are different; but this isn't a re-release, this is a new board game based off a new video game, and should likely be seen with that chasm of separation between them.

You mean you didn't see it in the article? Because it's not in the article but it is on the product page. It's $80.

Not if you don't like co-op games.
