First off, the graphics. There has been much hype about this aspect of the game and its fair to say they are very good for the Xbox, much better than Halo 1 or 2. Having played the PC version of Doom 3 I'd say the Xbox really doesn't do the graphics thing in the same way, then again it is really a 3yr old PC in a black box. The bump mapping is a similar quality to the textures seen in Halo and Riddick, but unlike those games is on absolutely everything. Whilst this looks very good objects and walls only emulate the solidity of the PC version and therefore if you've seen both will not give you the same sense of reality. However, if you're a console kid you'll be blown away as graphics wise Doom 3 absolutely destroys anything on the PS2 for example. The much hyped lighting effects are impressive but having played the likes of Splinter Cell and The Chronicles of Riddick since this Doom 3 was first announced they are no longer mind blowing. Although the game has been critised on the PC for being too dark the Xbox version seems a bit brighter which to be honest detracts slightly from the scary atmosphere of the PC version. At least it makes it easier to see where you are going though. The animation is top notch and is easily the best on any console game. The close up facial animations in particular remind me of the groundbreaking Half Life 2 on the PC, a mean feat for a console.Read more ›
For those that never played Doom, this is where the first person shooter kicked off 12 years ago. Make no mistake, this is Doom. You point and shoot. No advanced puzzles. Nothing but pure violence, blood and gore. The collectors edition includes the classic Doom games from the last decade.
Many complaint about the darkness of Doom3. That you can't use a flashlight and a rifle at the same time. I have even heard someone complaint in a public review that it is too bloody and messy. All of theese has not got the point in Doom3. It's supposed to scare you shitless. Nothing is as nervewracking as walking in to a really, really dark room with nothing but a flashlight in you hands. Then you have to ditch the light and grab the pump action shotgun when the deamons come leapin at you. When I think about it I don't think I would be able to fire a shotgun and use a flashlight at the same time, so why should this guy be able to do it? And complainting about blood and violence in Doom is somewhat a contradiction. However, this game is not suitable for children under 18, as stated on the cover.Read more ›
Doom 3 has received many criticisms, but people are comparing it to all the wrong things. Doom 3 is a simple and basic game, for a very good reason; the experience. ID have done they're very best to convince us that we, the player are trapped in this ultra realistic alive environment and it uses many tricks from the ambiguous marine you control to sound and images, from eerie radio chatter to the head shaking you receive when belted by an enemy, these all create suffocating and intoxicating scenes.
Where for example the excellent Halo 2 made you feel like you are controlling characters in a blockbuster movie, Doom 3 gives you no such safety. It gives you the impression of being trapped in complete anarchy, stretching your nerves and causing claustrophobia.
You will use complete trepidation from room to room in the vain hope of finding some safety, but knowing it will not come.
Doom 3 is a game that forces the player to try and escape the horrors it contains and is also the best example of an escape from reality.
Buy it, play it, breath it, experience it.
Unlike some reviews have mentioned, note that this is a SINGLE disc special edition, with all the game and extras on the 1 disc (unlike Halo 2 for example which had a full bonus disc of extras, but it's similarly packaged in an embossed tin box and plastic sleeve over the case).
About the game: ID Software have come on a long way from Doom I days, and have obviously put a lot of painstaking effort into making this the most immersive and scary single-player on the market. I only bought it a week ago but am hooked. You constantly find yourself looking over your shoulder and treading carefully as you don't know what horrors might lie around the next corner! It's quite simplistic and straightforward gameplay (a cross between Half Life and Halo - shoot the zombies - with Riddick graphics and sound thrown in for good measure) but has plenty to differentitate it from your average shooter.Read more ›
