A Shot In The Dark

Summary:

So, Doom. It's one of "those" games that can sit proudly in the knowledge that it's considered pretty damn important within the realms of its genre, if not gaming in general. This was a game that gave you guns, pointed to demons and said "kill". Doom 3 marks a significant update to the series as players get to gun down more demons. As fun as it can be, the more I play though, the more I feel is missing. Maybe titles like Half-Life 2 and Golden Eye have spoiled me.

Basically, you're a marine who's been transferred to a facility on Mars to replace some other poor sod and some stuff happens tha...

- PDA
- Easy Objectives
- Storyline
- Scare Tactics
- Level Design
- Multiplayer
- Game play

Summary:


I'll start by saying that D00M III on Xbox is much different to the PC version. The game is similar, although certain levels have been redesigned to eliminate tiresome backtracking. However, the key aspects of difference are the co-op which is available online and offline, and the Collector's Edition. The Collector's Edition is where the game really begins to pack some value. The additional features, for just a few dollars more are Ultimate D00M and D00M II, in all their glory, single player, co-op and death match. Furthermore, concept art and a small documentary on D00M III is also thrown ...

One of the first FPS is still one of the best

The good:

Awesome graphics, sound, and music. Fast, intense gameplay with some fresh elements. Multiplayer available via split screen and Xbox Live. Limited Collector's Edition has great extras included.

The bad:

The game is a little slow to get going at first. Some long load times, especially at startup. If you've played the PC version, not much has changed here. Does not include the Expansion Pack avilable for the PC version.

Summary:

After blowing everyone away on the PC, Doom 3 makes a virtually seamless transistion to the Xbox, and it's just as violent and scary as ever. The main plotline hasn't changed much: You're a new space marine who's been sent to a monster-infested hellhole on Mars. You have to use whatever you can get your hands on to wipe out the endless waves of evil monsters you'll face before they kill you. You'll face numerous types of enemies but can fight back with some incredible firepower like machine guns, rocket launchers, shotguns, and plasma guns for starters.
The graphics are virtually perfect-the...

needs better multiplayer

Summary:

This game is probably the scariest game I have ever played. This game is so much better than any other game I have ever played. This game will have you playing till the very end and scared the entire time. When I played this game it made me feel like I was really there. If you love FPS's and scary games buy this game. Make sure you get the limited edition because it comes with Ultimate Doom and Ultimate Doom 2 and a bunch of extra art and G4 interviews in it. Doom 3 has definitely pushed the Xbox to it's limits..

The only game better than Halo 2

The good:

The lighting realy is what makes this game scary. All of the demons are incredablly detailed. Accually every is good in this game.

The bad:

nothings bad...

Summary:

From the graphics to the sound this is a great game. Not 1 thing is wrong with this game. The graphics are the best part of this game. Nothing can compete with the graphics. From the detailed demons to the interatve inevororments every thing is great about the graphics is great. The sound is awsome too. The entire game sounds musical. With the 6 stereo surrond sound if something is sneaking up on you'll hear it or if your in a dark corridore you'll hear whispers. Also the sounds from the commandos and the marines from the radio makes the game scarier. The gameplay is great aswell. The overa...

Doom III.

The good:


-The terrifyingly brilliant graphics. It really pushes the Xbox to the extreme. I'm telling you now, watching a giant half-robotic bull empty some random guys intestines onto the floor in crystal clear graphics is a hell of an experience.

-The impressive array of weaponry is enough to make you drool, literally! I had to buy a new Xbox controller after my first play.

-The sound. Oh boy, the sound alone is enough to make you hide under your bed covers, never mind everything else!

-The enemies are a force to be reckoned with. Extreme detail has been put into designing these guys, and they pack one hell of a punch!

The bad:


-The torch. As you may have heard, or seen if you've played this game before, the torch can be a real pain in the ass. Constantly switching from torch to weapon, then weapon to torch can be tiresome. Not to mention how hard it is shooting blindly into the darkness in attempt to actually hit something.

-As i started to touch on in the above, the CONSTANT darkness drags the game down on the score charts. It isn't any fun being hit in the back of the head only to turn around and not be able to see what hit you.

-If you've played this game before you will notice that you always seem to be in some shady blood covered room or corridor. This game is very repetitive, and some rooms look almost identical, which can be confusing at times.

Summary:


I admit when i first heard about Doom 3 i didn't get my hopes up. Like many other Doom fans I've spoken to i thought that the new improved graphics, guns, enemies etc, would kill off the real feel of the previous Doom games. Although, once i really got down the playing it i discovered how well it lived up to the legendary Doom I and II. Definately worth the money. Go get it!!
