Doom 3: BFG Edition is a slightly updated version of Doom 3 that tries to look and play better, but actually comes across as potentially worse than the original version due to the changes.
Doom 3 is pretty much every Doom game ever: Hell has invaded, so go kill some demons. Except this time you start on Mars and the demons are a terrifying amalgamation of flesh and metal. You still can carry enough guns to weigh down an elephant and rely on armor and health packs instead of regenerating health, but in Doom 3 you were given a flashlight to light up dark corridors and help make the atmosphere all the more terrifying since you couldn’t use the flashlight and a weapon at the same time. In Doom 3: BFG Edition you have a flashlight on your armor that allows you to use a weapon while lighting up a dark corridor, which some will find helpful and others find counterproductive to the atmosphere. Likewise, ammo more plentiful in the BFG edition than in regular Doom 3, which can either make the game easier for novices or more frustrating for people who want a more survival horror feel that the original game tried to do.
However, the biggest problem is what was added to Doom 3: BFG Edition. There is almost no difference between the graphics in the BFG version and in the original version. The textures are slightly better, but not by much, and the models still look dated. The “lost levels” dull, especially if you have already played through the base game, and the additions of Doom 1 and 2 to the game is almost insulting given that this is supposed to be the “Doom 3: BFG Edition”, not the “Doom Bundle”.
Doom 3: BFG Edition tries valiantly to be a remastering of the original game, but the changes are extremely subjective and the additions are almost downright laughable. If you don’t mind spending a little extra money for the first two Doom games, buy the BFG Edition. If not, buy the vanilla version and it’s expansion.
Not the DOOM 3 we expectedKingTed | Feb. 20, 2015 | See all KingTed's reviews »
As a classic, the DOOM franchise has a huge fan-base therefore when DOOM 3 was announced, hype took over the fans. The final product received mix reactions from the fans because DOOM 3 is not the game that we expected. DOOM 3 is much more focused on offering a horror experience than recreating DOOM 2 in a new engine. The level design is composed by dark corridors where more "realistic" demons will appear and attack the player. And that's where the flashlight enters the scene. It is impossible to shoot your gun and use the flashlight at the same time. That's how the game tries to scare the player. When you're pointing your precious shotgun in front of you, you can't see what's after you.
However DOOM 3 is a solid shooter packed with eerie atmosphere and dreadful monsters to kill. The action doesn't get the scale of DOOM 2 but it's still epic. Furthermore, this game is lot more interesting to play than most of today's shooter.
This BFG Edition offers the original game, his add-on Resurrection of Evil and eight new levels.
DOOM 3 is a must have.

Finished this game, but I have to admit that I'm disappointed, when Doom 3 first came out I thought it's going to be like Ultimate Doom/Doom 2 but with better graphics, new monsters and new guns along with maps but looks like I was wrong. But hey it's still a fun game but I wouldn't recommend it at a full price ( I mean on the BFG Edition). Thanks for reading!
Not bad, probably not worth it if you already own DOOM 3InsaneHien | April 19, 2014 | See all InsaneHien's reviews »
I can say that DOOM 3 was a success. Some scenes gave me the chills. I liked the atmosphere of the game. Good graphics and gameplay when it first released. Unfortunately, I haven't finished the game at all so I can't say much about it.
This remastered version is basically updated with improved graphics along with the inclusion of DOOM, DOOM 2 and its expansion Resurrection of Evil. This package would be a good starting point for those who've never played the series. I don't recommend buying it if you already own the original game.

Nearly a decade after Doom 3 came out, and I can only imagine Bethesda, the new publisher of id Software’s games, must have pushed for this re-release. But I don’t really see the point. It includes Doom 3, as well as the Lost Missions, which is a bunch of cut missions from Doom 3, and it has the rather lacklustre expansion, Resurrection of Evil.
In addition to this it has The Ultimate Doom and Doom II: Hell On Earth packaged in there too.
The problem here is that some mods for Doom 3 don’t work with this version, and many people, including me and people I personally know, have had issues with getting it to even work. That makes it hard to recommend this pack. I would much rather suggest that you purchase Doom 3 and perhaps the expansion separately, and then get a hold of Doom Classic Complete on GMG, which has Doom, Doom II, as well as the Master Levels for Doom II and Final Doom.
This re-release is really set to appeal to the console audience, but for PC gamers, you can do a lot better. It doesn't look or play much better than the original release of Doom 3, and there are mods out there that do a much better job of making the game prettier. It just ended up as a wasted opportunity.
