BPM - The Doom Inspired... Rhythm Game!?

I’ve seen some pretty cool genre-crossing games over the years, but when it boils down to it, the words FPS and rhythm game don’t really go together well, or so I thought. Now we have BPM: Bullets Per Minute! The developers at Awe Interactive came up with the genius idea of taking the hardcore and violent FPS style of a DOOM game and smushed them into something akin to Beat Saber or Guitar Hero. What I find even cooler though is that it appears to have worked really well.

BPM – The Doom Inspired… Rhythm Game!?

Basically, you do EVERYTHING to the beat. Hence the name BPM: Bullets Per Minute. Every shot, every reload, every move, rocket jump, hop, dash, melee, it’s all choreographed. It doesn’t appear to be on the rails either, thanks to it using a procedurally-generated dungeon system, five different characters and a good array of weapons, buffs and bonuses. So basically it’s a Rogue-like Doom-Like Rhythm game.
