the real horror meets FPS game

this game literally made me not want to play this game. at time is can scare the crap out of you, but at others, it can be an intense fps that can overwhelm even the best of players. the story is so-so, and the graphics aren't the greatest, but its still an older game and can be forgiven with is finely tuned gameplay and atmosphere.

works great on laptops and should really be played with a mouse and keyboard.

Worth it

The Doom franchise is very well known for its essential role in the history and evolution of the FPS genre.

Well, DOOM 3, despite being considered by many to be the weakest link in the franchise, is a great game(although a bit old), and it does its predecessors proud, by keeping on the right track.

It might be true that it is quite short and it doesn't bring many improvements over DOOM 2, but it is nevertheless and great classic shooter that should be present in any gamer's library.

What Doom was meant to be like, but it came up a little short

There are two camps when it comes to this game. There are those who love it, and those who hate it. It's almost every bit as controversial as the original, but for almost entirely different reasons.

The graphics were supposedly top of the range for its time, but it just doesn’t look very pretty to be honest. The character models don't look so hot, and the animation on the whole, particularly with more friendly human characters, could be a lot better. The game is also unjustifiably dark – which is meant to induce fear in to players, but in the end it just leads to much frustration instead. This and having to constantly switch between a flashlight and a weapon is extremely annoying.

Get those issues out of the way, and you still have an enjoyable shooter on your hands. There are plenty of weapons that pay homage to the originals, and this time around you also have a PDA which can play audio logs, read emails, and play demonstration videos found throughout the game – no doubt a gameplay mechanic taken from System Shock 2.

The pace in Doom 3 is much slower than the originals, and the game is darker in theme with even more hellish imagery and sounds, which I admit are used to rather good effect. Overall, even though it is like comparing apples to oranges due to the largely different technologies available, the game world looks and feels the part. But those corridors are even more claustrophobia-inducing than I remember.

While it attempts to be scary though, it’s very much a game that will make you jump, but won’t really terrify you out of your wits. It tries too hard. There’s still action to be had, but it’s very stop and start compared to the originals, and it is missing that iconic adrenaline pumping soundtrack as well. It’s more horror than action horror. So it just about does its job as a revamped Doom, at least as far as looks go, although it could have been better as I said before. There are enough high resolution mods out there though to make up for its looks, and they also tweak numerous other things like weapon damage, sound and the like.

If you are a fan of the series and don’t have this yet, then give Doom 3 a try. It's a good game, but several minor issues let it down from being the best it could have been.

Doom, one of the most famous series in game industry. When you say FPS you Doom is you first candidate.

Doom 3, date of release 2007, graphic in 2013... excellent. Game has a great atmosphere and in combination with sound effect you will get thrills down to your spine. Maps have a very good designs, and a lot of dark corners.

Don't play this game at the late hours it will not be good for you. If you don't have in your collection, that is a big mistake, and you have now opportunity to correct a mistake.

Great FPS

Doom 3 exemplifies the simplistic nature of true gaming. It has the ability to draw a gamer into a fictional world while leaving the gamer feeling a part of it. This is a rare accomplishment in the gaming industry. Kudos to all involved with the design and implementation of Doom 3. Thanks for the experience.
