This game is a blast to play. The graphics are updated to match modern games. Those complaining claiming the original Doom 3 graphics were better or almost the same must have horrible graphics cards or don't know how to use them. I replayed this recently for my Youtube channel and this was the most fun I have had in years on a game. Constant on the edge of your seat action once you get past the introduction section. Takes about 25mins then all hell breaks loose literally and it just gets faster paced as you go on. Can't wait for Doom 4 now.
Doom 3 came into some stick when it first came out, some people didn't appreciate the push toward a more horror feel in the game, others complained about the fact that you had to switch out your weapon for your flashlight to see what is creeping around in the corridor ahead, then comes BFG and tapes your flashlight to your gun and people complained that the game lost its focus, damned if you do, damned if you don't I guess, but all that aside the game is actually very enjoyable, I personally like the new direction, the oppressive atmosphere fit the subject matter, you have demons warping in from god knows what dimensions and I think the horror aspect fits with that, the gun play is quite good, a bit of a corridor slog, most of the time you are moving from a corridor to a big room to another corridor and so on, but to be honest I prefer that to being lost having to double back 50 times like in doom 2 to find the right sequence of doors to go through to advance.
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.
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!
