DOOM 3 in spite of its years, the title is good and is not without a reason being mentioned, alongside Half-Life2 and Far Cry, as the best FPS of their time. A Huge plus for the stages in hell, very climatic, well designed. It's dark, but it's a great climate and it creates a huge field for the so-called jump scares and that works out great. Solid title.
Ten long years after Doom II: Hell on Earth, we finally got long awaited and highly anticipated sequel to one of the best FPS franchises of all time. It was simply called Doom 3. It was supposed to be scarier, have plot, satanic shenanigans, pretty much "modern" take on Doom. Something went horribly wrong, though, because while the graphics are nice, music other than intro is pretty non-existent, id decided that it was good idea to make the game so dark, to use flashlight as different weapon instead of ducttape to the firearm, so it was more of a game of swapping between source of light and then shoot kinda blindly at enemies. Plot is laughably bad and gets in the way of gameplay, incredibly slowing the pace. As for the horror and scares, most of them are cheap and unscary "jump scares". Because of that swapping thing, shooting turns into a chore and game half way through gets boring. Many didn't even make it to hell, because claustrophobic corridors all look the same and are boring. Doom 3 BFG edition thankfully fixed many of the problems with this game, like finally getting rid of flashlight, which makes this game much better. If you want to experience first version of this game, go for it, you might enjoy it. However, if you want to save time and don't want to experience all the chore, go for BFG edition.
I don't know which bothers me more. When they remeke a game, and slap on it the same title as the original, or when they remake a game, and give it a title that suggests that it's a sequel. Then again, maybe i'm overthinking this... So, doom 3 is a game, that looks extremely pretty, even to this day, and works great, plays great, and even has a story that's while not the greatest ever, really works well with the horror game setting. The notes and audio logs just make the whole thing alive, and even more creepy. And, let's be honest, it's great to see the horrors of our childhood all grown up, remade in more detail. My only beef with the game is the damn flashlight. Sure, it makes it scarier, but damn....why don't he just tapes the thing to his helmet or something???
Even though most "scary" games don't really do much for me, there were more than a few occasions where the "scare factor" of this game actually made me jump. A lot of this game takes place in very dark areas, and those are normally the spots where you will turn around suddenly and see this freaky looking demon staring you right in the eyes - and you jump in surprise. Besides from the scare factor, this game also offers lots of exciting, very challenging moments. The story keeps you going right till the very end. The graphics are very good. The ambient music and noises help add to the over-all feel of the game. Basically, this is a really good game, that not only is fun to play, but has a great replay-ability factor. Give this game a try, you won't be disappointed!
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.
