Comment: Doom 3 is excellent. It isn’t revolutionary, but it does bring a simple and exciting gaming experience with near-flawless precision.

Comment: There are two kinds of people in this world: people who loved Doom 3, and people who…well, you know how that goes. Let it suffice that eight years after release, Doom 3 remains a divisive game. Whether you found the juggling of weapons and flashlight to be a taut tension-builder or a tedious chore, thought the monster closets were chilling or just cheesy, odds are Doom 3 left a deep impression on you. Me, I’m a staunch member of the pro-Doom 3 brigade, and while I haven’t thought much about the game since I got done with its only expansion pack ages ago, I realized recently that I’ve been plenty ready for a good excuse to run back through those dimly lit Martian corridors again with all the hindsight the last several years have provided. Sadly, even the two original games don’t arrive intact in BFG, and it’s here where I find the changes made to this collection so perplexing and unfortunate. Like it or hate it, your inability to use a flashlight and weapon at the same time was the defining factor in Doom 3’s gameplay cycle and it’s largely what created the game’s thick sense of tension. Sweeping a darkened room with your light would give you a basic sense of its layout, but if you wanted to defend yourself, you had to rely on your memory, the ambient glow of the facility’s remaining computers and machinery, and the muzzle flash of your weapons to make out the shapes of the enemies and put your shots on target. BFG Edition throws all that right out the window, making the flashlight a simple toggle that you turn on and off instantly regardless of what weapon you’re holding. The flashlight also bafflingly doesn’t cast any shadows off the environment, enemies, or anything else, which may sound like an obscure technical thing but was also instrumental in establishing the visual mood of Doom 3. These changes don’t destroy the tension–I still let out a couple of involuntary yelps here and there when a maggot snuck up behind me–but why there’s not at least a menu option for classic flashlight mode, I have no idea. There are hardly options for anything, even basic functionality like subtitles, and on the PC, where you expect a healthy set of graphics options but will find none, that’s especially damning. You can add the first two Doom games to the list of BFG’s features, but these aren’t especially well implemented either. On the 360, you’re just launching the Xbox Live Arcade releases from a menu, so if you already bought those, you’re getting literally nothing new. (The inability to play these releases from the game’s custom menu when the disc is installed is just inexcusable, especially when you can still circumvent the issue by playing them from the dashboard’s games library.) Things are a bit rosier on the PS3, which has never seen either of these classics released on PSN, but the ports themselves aren’t nearly as snappy as the ones on the Xbox, with slow, clunky menus and a lengthy save process every time you change a menu option. So what are the BFG Edition’s pros? Stereoscopic 3D support across the board is the one that’s likely to be useful to the most people. Obviously, that largely comes down to your interest in playing games in 3D in the first place, but the 3D separation worked more or less fine on both consoles for me. I occasionally ran into enough crosstalk to make it hard to aim at enemies, but that may have been due to my TV setup and not the game. You can definitely lay the 3D frame rate issues at the game’s feet though. Both versions run at a rock-solid 60 frames per second in normal mode, but the frame rate drops substantially in 3D (and noticeably worse so on the Xbox), enough that I preferred just playing it in 2D for a smoother experience. The PC version offers support for the forthcoming Oculus Rift VR headset, which is conceptually a great feature to have, but since even the developer-oriented version of that thing isn’t shipping yet, it’s not very helpful in practice right now. And the presence of a cool feature you can’t actually use yet is especially depressing in light of the poor implementation of some of this collection’s more basic features.
The environments in Doom 3 are exceptional. The lighting and lack thereof is so well composed that, given the appropriate system, you will bleed into that reality. It does not look like a game.

Comment: The gameplay connected with fighting is repetitive, especially after a while. Taking into consideration those linear AI, you just shoot at them, trying to avoid them, or, the fun part, trying to avoid their flying projectiles. Other than that, no strategy, no paths of actions. In short, the computer will bore you after time. The game is quite long. It has good pacing. Okay, maybe a bit too long. There may be a moment when you will say to yourself: when will this damn thing end!? That reason for this is probably the lack of story, I mean the game is stretched unproportionally relative to the story, if you know what I mean; the story may stagnate. So obviously it is not a good thing.

Comment: Played the entire game, very awsome. It shows a very twisted version of a hellish world that you are forced to navigate through and try to survive.

Many people call this game horrifying and the worst I could probably see if probably a lack of light in the air, though when the demon portals open up you could guess where your enemies are so it isn’t like you are forced to ‘spray and pray’ like Gunz gamers call it. Even if you use the flashlight, incase you are forced to fight something, your character will strike them with the handle of the light in self defence.

The weapons remind me of the good old days of the older Doom games, though I wish there was an easier way to scroll between weapons so I’m not spending a good 20 seconds dodging fireballs while I try to pull out my shotgun to save the rest of my ammo with.

The monsters were horrifyingly grewsome, loved them, each of them.

Though I wish they left out the super cube thing, that kind of killed it for me

  1. For me this is awesome shooting, on begining accident happen and turn ppl in labs into monsters, ur goal is to escape, u have large choice of weapons that will help u. U need a bit to explore to finish objective, and that can be a bit boring. Best thing about this game is “horror” factor, even if u dont play game for 1st time, u will be still scared when enemies suddenly pop up from dark. 5 of 5

  2. Classic game and its worth its price. The atmosphere of the game has a creepy feeling, theres varied enemies and a lot of good levels. If you played Half Life you’ve probably played this one as well

  3. Doom 3 is a really nice survival horror first-person shooter. It’s a huge improvement from the earlier Doom games with a more modern game feel to it, and it’s full of entertaining violence as the player attacks the creatures in the game. Also, the game really does well with capturing some frightening graphics. Overall, I would rate this game a 4.5/5.

  4. One of the earliest FPS franchise Doom really holds up and Doom3 being a huge improvement from the earlier doom games. Who doesnt wanna play as doomguy wreckin havoc on hell.
