I remember playing Doom when the second one came out and it was scary, when you sit in a darkened room with the volume right up, not knowing what was down the corridor or round the corner. Then games went away from this type and genre of shooter to the COD's and MOH's, however F.E.A.R brought it back, which is fantastic and then Dead Space etc etc.
So an old game that has been out decades has no real chance of living up to the new games of today does it? Apparently yes it does. This game has greatly improved HD graphics and the new levels are brilliant in Doom 3, not just on or two but quite a few.
The first two games serve as a bit of fun as on highly improved machines as they become quite difficult and getting all the achivements will be no walk in the park. However Doom 3 is the most worked on and improved game out of the lot and this is seen.
Anyone who enjoys games and FPS should buy this game if they havent played it before, a harderned follower should get it to tide them over to the next title hopefully coming out. At only £13.99 (PC) and £24.99 (Console) it is well worth the money to cure those dull dark cold and wet winter nights that seem to be already upon us.
I originally played this game and it's expansions on PC and the X Box version is just as good.
For it's age the graphics and gameplay are still excellent and offers good challenges.
I know that the game is a bit linear, but this, to me makes it uncomplicated and easy to play unlike a lot of newer games.
I also like the save system as you can save whenever you want and do not have to try and reach a certain save point which can result in playing the same section over and over again. It also means that you can have a quick few minutes of play if you do not have time for an extended session.
I can not understand why all games can not adopt this system, but maybe it is a way of trying to extend a games playing time under the pretext of giving value for money, but replaying the same section over and over is not my idea of fun.
If you are a fan of FPS games give this a try, I don't think you will be disappointed and it comes with the original Doom BFG game plus the two expansion modules.
A big difference from the original is the flashlight. Before you could either wield the light or a weapon, never both at the same time. This definitely lead to some "fill yer pants up" moments. Now though you dont have to worry about that as you have a shoulder light which can be toggled on and off with your weapon drawn. Some may see this as a misdirection for the new edition but...........on hard mode of play this game can still give you a run for your money and there is a strong element of unease during some of the missions. Voices whispering, babies crying and demonic laughter.
The gun-play is smooth and the weapons handle well. This is good old classic FPS run and gun play, with elements of survival horror and supernatural scenarios.
The impressive use of lighting really does bring the darker side of Mars to life and considering the often bland environments it is a real game changer, adding a deeper tone to the phenomenon occurring in the base. Zombies randomly assault you from newly opened access panels and doors, Demons pounce at you from above and meanwhile you'll be gladly blasting into them with Shotguns, Assault rifles and hacking them up with the Chainsaw - that old chestnut.
7 years have been kind to this game and anyone who hasnt tried the Doom series, this would be a good place to start. You get Doom, Doom 2 and 3 (with the expansion packs).Read more ›
8 years ago a game by a small development team broke cover, snarling and blood-thirsty, a monster of a game. It delivered excellent graphics, terrifying and gripping gameplay, and a solid and interesting storyline. This was no ordinary first person horror shooter, this was Doom 3.
By todays standards Doom still deliveres quite a punch. Maybe the graphics are showing their age. But even then, they're not all that terrible. Doom still doesn't feel like any other game of it's type (even now), it was and still is a pace-setter for the horror FPS. If you want to make an wicked scary game, that keeps you riveted from the get go, look no further than Doom for inspiration.
So what is it about this beast that we all love so much? Like a zombie lurching from the shadows; it's all in the delivery and presentation.
Firstly the attention to detail in Doom is what really pulls you into the twisted world of Mars City where the game is set. You arrive on Mars as a Marine assigned to a security detail at a big research lab. It's all pretty standard and normal until you are tasked to find a missing scientist. This transitional period in the beginning of the game is very smooth and well written. It draws you in nicely as things go from normal, to weird, to worse. From then on you decend into a terrifying world where every movement on the game makes you nervous, and every sound in your living room makes you jump.
If there is one thing Doom excels in, it's suspense and the creation of a foreboding environment. As you play you become more and more uneasy, every new unopened door fills you with dread at what may lie behind it. The threat of every corner and every shadow being home to some grim demon waiting to jump out on you.Read more ›
