To answer our initial question, then: yes, BUTCHER is a great game to play if you have that DOOM itch, as well as being a great game in its own right. It feels fantastic to play; your movement and shooting feel wonderfully responsive and every trigger press is immensely satisfying.
Butcher is violent, fun, frantic, crazy…etc. It’s short, but a good play for the value. There are a good amount of options available, and it’s definitely got heart (granted, it’s dripping in blood). If you’re into the Doom series, or you’ve played other games like Quake, this game is definitively in that vein.
Even as a nice homage (visually and audibly) to DOOM and other games of its era, Butcher certainly has its moments in gory, exploitative fashion. However, its high difficulty, low replayabilty, and mechanics make it feel limited and shallow.
