    Resurrection of Evil even failed to match the atmosphere of the previous title and is little more than eye-candy without any flavor. Do yourself a favor and pass on this one.

Obviously, to get these experiences, you need to play at Veteran difficulty, else I reckon it'd be just a bore! So, not bad, not great, scary enough when played on the right difficulty, I just arrived at Delta labs to be teleported to hell, looking forward to the change of scenery! Full Review »

    First of all, I played this on PS3, but Metacritic doesn't allow me to leave a review for this for PS3.

    This DLC the quality and depth of many modern feature games. I was able to get more hours of playback out of this dlc than with feature games such as The Order 1886 which cost triple the price. That is something to be commended. I really loved Doom 3, it was one of the best single player FPS experiences in many years, and was sad when it was over. So when I found out about it's DLC I had high hopes. Resurrection Of Evil was very well made. It feels like a continuation, and captures the atmosphere and gerneral Doom 3 style. But it keeps things fresh and new enough to be different. Some different monsters, a less puzzle and collection style of gameplay, and more linear a-to-b-to-b style gameplay. Boss battles are vastly different, and at times the game is less forgiving at providing ammo and health. Also some weapons are different and also there is new equipment, a gravity-gun style tool, and an "artefact" which let's you do some cool things. Great stuff.

    It's not quite on par with Doom 3 though, there's less to explore. I felt a little less immersed in the world. There were far fewer jump-scares and psychedelic moments (tricking you into thinking you're about to die, Which happened often in Doom 3). However I can't really say I'm disappointed or I that expected such things in a DLC.
