Default Doom 3

I just got a hold of it. I played the first level.


Here'* my review:

HOLY **** !!



And it scared the crap out of me. If you are really in to shooter games, and are a fan of the Doom series, I totally reccommend getting this game.

It wasn't made as a multiplayer game as its dominant mode. It is based off the original Doom, where is focuses more on a single player basis. Trust me, it shouldn't have been any other way. This game is amazing.

Sol, I just wanted to say that I just got done looking at the blog page in your sig, and all I have to say is this: I will always remember you for the 30+ minutes of my life that you and your site has stole away from, like a thief in the night :P Although, I do have to say, it seems like you guys have a lot of fun up there in Detroit God, I wish it snowed down here :( I hate palm trees!

I went to BestBuy as soon as it opened Tuesday to pickup my copy. I remember the original Doom game, using a SERIAL cable to "multiplay" with my friends, or two of us dialing EACHOTHER over the modem (28.8K) for co-operative play. I loved Doom because it was the best single player FPS, all other FPS since have made it a point to put emphasis on multiplayer play instead of the AI, or graphics, or sound, or PLOT etc. Doom 3 has scared the crap out of me each night I have played it, when Doom 2 came out I actually called in sick to work for three days to play it, and play it I did. From when I got up till the wee hours of the morning, it caused some minor nightmares, but after only playing Doom 3 for 45 minutes the first night I had INTENSE nightmares. Folks, if you dont have the game, GET IT, if you can't run it, UPGRADE. This one is well worth it.

You don't need a mega-machine either. All I have is a 2ghz P4, 512 RAM and a GeForce4 with 256MB memeory on it. Runs and looks great....

It looks decent on my GF4 4800. I would like to upgrade to a 5900, but I can deal with it.

I am at work right now, and I really wanna go home and play it. I am used to playing multiplayer shooters like UT2k4 and such, so this is a bit different for me. But I love it!

I played Doom 1 back when I was 9 years old. That and Wolf3d actually got me in to the shooter games 10 years ago. This is quite different from Doom 1 and 2, but the same monsters, guns, and plot still exist.

Lol, I would get it, but I'm a panzy and don't like being scared Hell, I used to get scared playing Half-Life when the head crabs would jump at you! I will sum up the courage to play Half-Life 2, however My God, so many good games are coming out in September (my b-day month, yes!) it'* not even funny :P I counted no less than 12 games I want that are coming out in the next 2-3 months, and 8 of those I have decided that I WILL NOT be able to live without! I love my PC, hehe...
