DOOM 3 is the most polarizing game in the DOOM series to date or taking a survival horror approach over the fast paced guns blazing action that defined the first two groundbreaking masterpieces. However, with an open mind and the knowledge that you're in for a different kind of game than before, DOOM 3 is surprisingly fun and tense. It's true that you quickly get used to the scares because the game really only scares you one way the entire through, but the foreboding atmosphere which includes demonic voices in the background, tight, dark corridors and a gloomy soundtrack makes it worth experiencing. The modern re-visioning of the enemies are nicely done and the pinkies in particular are frightening to look at. Unfortunately, you'll fight less than a handful throughout the entire game. The action more than makes up for it though. Enemies will constantly ambush you from multiple directions, even sneaking up behind you, ensuring that you'll always have to be on your toes to succeed, especially on higher difficulties. And after awhile, the game finds a nice, comfortable groove between action and all-out horror that is still effective if played in a dark room with headphones on. It may not quite be the sequel all of us wanted, but DOOM 3 is a gorgeous and interesting take on the series that is a nice fit in modern times.

This game is awesome, and the best out of the 3 on BFG edition. The style of gameplay kept to the classic game style, the noises, sound effects and lightening gives a great atmosphere in every level. The best and worst about it is the difficulty, it can get frustrating at times on hard difficulty, as one or two shots kills you. But that makes it a proper survival horror. This game is defiantly worth it for the fun dialogue, really enjoyable gameplay and one of few decent survival horror games
I was scared playing DOOM?wany1981 | July 11, 2015 | See all wany1981's reviews »
As a 35 years old I grow up with doom. When i am in high school i played so much that i can finish nightware difficulty for the first 5 levels of doom. It's was both fun and funny to shoot at Alien that suppose to be big and scray because of the lack of graphics and detail. This game completly changed that. It use a huge step up in graphics from the old doom and made this game into a very scrary game. It's even worse the dead space I. The story is so-so and even though the graphics change it can still be improved. Music is much well done compare to the other doom game. Enough talking i am going to play it again!
A Great Horror Game but...TheForgery | June 18, 2015 | See all TheForgery's reviews »
Doom 3 is a first person shooter game that despite being the third sequel, it has almost nothing in common and does not continue from Doom 2. Rather, it is a reboot in which the game has been converted into "something different". The graphics are spectacular and are comparable to today's games. The lighting is also on par and works well to entice fear at certain points in the game. Each level is fairly well made and literally made me feel like I was on a doomed research facility on a dead planet some considerable distance away from earth. Doom 3 maintains its entertainment value by boasting many weapons to rip apart or disintegrate the diverse population of invading demons. Use a shotgun to blast the face off from an Imp or use the ever-so-famous BFG and literally launch the power of a nuclear explosion on a Hellknight to show who's boss! The major downside of the game is it adopted a slow-paced horror theme, rather than the famous run-and-gun theme that the other DOOM games are renowned for. While the atmosphere is suitable, it is a major disappointment for hardcore fans. Moreover, the constant jumpscares, such as enemies popping out of darkened areas or from behind walls become cliche'd fast. Most of the game takes place in enclosed (and possibly claustrophobic) areas that seem smaller than their older predecessors. You barely have the chance to explore the surface of Mars Another infamous fact is to illuminate dark sections, a flashlight must be used and another weapon cannot be used at the same time. Although I did enjoy how Doom 3 took a different approach, it's hardly a lovable DOOM game. There's no fast paced action and the horror can become boring and repetitive. This game gets a B- from me.

I've played Doom games since I was a kid. Doom 3 is definitely my favorite of the series. It's the only one that stands up to modern games in controls and graphics. It has amazing atmosphere, the dark corridors are there to build tension, and not just to be "dark" like many modern horror games. It has more of a story than the previous Doom games as well. The opening and closing levels are also among the best in any FPS. Easily worth the $10
