Nothing much has changed since 2004britishlad | May 8, 2013 | See all britishlad's reviews »
Doom 3 BFG is the same good game that it was 8 years ago -- and that's exactly the problem. At the time it represented a milestone in the FPS genre, sound design and graphics. It was one of the creepiest games I've ever played and it's still fun. However, it's exactly the same game with a few small but important alterations: the game is no longer as dark as it was, and there's a flashlight available at all times. One of the key elements that made this game so scary was the darkness plus you could only use a gun or a flashlight, but not at the same time. So there's no longer that sense of dread and doom that made me jump out of my seat 8 years ago. The game did not improve by these changes in my opinion.
More Importantly, the graphics have not improved at all and they show their age. While awesome that the time, they are now laughably primitive. The excellent level designs as well as the sound design were already great and withstood the test of time, however. To sum up, it was a good game, and one for the gaming hall of fame, but there's really nothing here for veterans of the first version. In fact, this is the inferior one of the two, and I recommend that people who have never played this game should stick with the original - it's cheaper and better. For people who already played the original, there's nothing of value here. The so called lost missions is only 2 hours long and not worth playing to be honest.
A Worthy Addition to Your Collectionvideopower77 | May 5, 2013 | See all videopower77's reviews »
For the few people that haven't played Doom 3, then now is the time to pick it up. The graphics have been tweaked a bit and there is now the heavily requested always on flashlight. For those who have played Doom 3, the new campaign gives reason to give this one another go around but it probably wouldn't be worth the full price.
Doom I and II are nice bonuses as well as Steam Cloud saves and achievements.
For best entertainment value, play the game in complete darkness with headphone volume up. Thank me (or curse me) later.
Awesome but...Lekes | March 7, 2013 | See all Lekes's reviews »
Quite honestly, I am a little bit disappointed. I simply expected more. There are completely free (!) mods by the community, that offer better graphics than this. So for your bucks, you get slightly better graphics and wide screen support + some minor game tweaks that make it a tad bit faster. I really love the whole Doom series, but this seems to me like just like an attempt to milk players for some more money. Had this been free for people who bought the original Doom 3 + RoE, it would have been really awesome. But this way, its just the old good Doom 3 with some minor graphic additions and missions, that could have been easily added via a patch and completely free of charge.

A few years ago when Doom 3 came out the press called it one of the best games of the moment. Several friends recommended it to me, telling me it was great, but for various reasons could not buy it. I took advantage of this reissue to me with it and I was not disappointed at all. The graphics are a bit limited and notice the movement of enemies somewhat crude (type doll) when compared with those of the current action games, but these little drawbacks noted quickly stop because the game sucks you in completely. The sound is perfect and excellent ambiantación making immersion in that world is absolutely overwhelming and claustrophobic. Just have to think, but you spend a lot of hours with the survival instinct and spent activated adrenaline jet. I think the key that I liked so much is that there are no elements that distract you and take you out of the story. The complex puzzles or games in which one must be constantly picking up objects or things tuneando eventually slow and amodorrarte action. Here that does not happen. Each weapon only brings a type of ammunition and can not be improved. No need to press keys to collect ammo or armor, but when passing the acquire automatically. This may seem silly, allows you to focus solely on what's important: survive hundreds of enemies that attack you. Another strength is how well they are dosed attacks enemies with other moments of exhaustion and recovery, but forcing you to always stay alert. The bosses in the classic style of action games, not disappoint. The well-balanced difficulty: difficult enough to be challenging but not enough to be impossible or lead to frustration. Therefore, at least for me, all the good reviews it received this title once were deserved.

This collection is for sure worth it. It contains Doom1,2 and 3 with all expansions. All games are compatible with a X360 controller, and Doom 3 has some improvement (like the light that can be activated without putting away your weapon)that makes it better. For this price, just try this piece of history.
