  • Summary: Following the events of "Doom 3" and featuring new locations, characters and weapons, including the return of the double-barreled shotgun, DOOM 3: Resurrection of Evil expands the terrifying action that fans have been raving about. The expansion pack continues right where the original left off - with a terrifying atmosphere and a new story which delivers you deeper into the heart of the UAC to uncover new secrets and technology used to destroy the demon force that's Hell-bent on destroying you. The expansion continues the frightening and gripping single player experience of the blockbuster original. The title also features even more multiplayer action with support for up to eight players in all new maps. (The expansion requires the full retail version of Doom 3.) [Activision] Expand

  1. The game we were all hoping Doom 3 was going to be in the first place. It just took a few more months and the help of Nerve Software to get there. The difficulty is much higher now, but with the added power of the double-barrel shotgun and the innovative uses of the grabber, plus the insanely cool artifact gameplay balances out nicely.
  2. It gives DOOM 3 fans more demon-killing gameplay set in a new storyline, while adding just enough new to ward off the “been there, done that” feeling. If you enjoyed DOOM 3 you’ll be very happy with Resurrection of Evil and shouldn’t hesitate to add it to your arsenal.
  3. Delivers more of the same Doom experience. Doom 3's ubiquitous darkness and monsters that spawn behind your back have not gone to hell where they belong. But would it be the same without them? [May. 05]
  4. The addition of the double-barreled shotgun, grabber, and artifact, the introduction of the ominous Hunter bosses, and the injection of a multiplayer capture-the-flag mode all significantly enhance the gameplay in this title.
  5. While the enhanced multiplayer mode and the new items such as the gravity gun add to the game nicely, RoE essentially offers the same basic gameplay seen in the original, not really expanding enough to attract new fans.
  6. If you liked Doom 3, then you’ll love the expansion pack. However, if you felt the game got a bit old and hated the flashlight/gun game play mechanism, there’s nothing new here to win you over.
  7. 45
    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.

    It was great to have some new weapons in the game in the expansion. The new monster zombies are cool looking and really alot of fun to kill. This expansion really makes you understand the story of it all more. If you loved playing DOOM 3 then you cant go wrong in buying this one too. I like it that it creates new ways of killing the enemies. It is alot of fun to play! It is a must buy for DOOM lovers! Expand

    When playing Doom 3: RoE I had a lot more fun than when playing the original game. Primarily, I found that the action during the expansion was a lot more interesting, most of the issues that I had with the original game were taken care of. The primary cannon fodder was a little more challenging, the weapons more interesting, and the expansion was 'short and sweet' as opposed to very long and drawn out. Expand

    Letdown. Simply too short for the full price, introducing us the double barreled shotgun in the third installment. Now where they aiming HL2 with the Grabber? I cant tell. But if they did, they destroyed theyr own chemistry. It felt uninspired and slapped quickly together for the bucks... Expand

    Nerve software needs to stick to console conversions. The story is weak, the modified gameplay is even weaker. The versatility of the new weapons doesn't do much to counteract the major annoyances of the original Doom 3, which were turned up to eleven in this sequel. Expand

    I liked doom 3, but I felt that it lacked something. I figured the expansion pack would take the game into a new direction. But guess what?? its the SAME thing, only WORST. I couldnt believe it! small enviroments! I mean come on! how boring is that!!!! same monsters, Everything is the SAME!!! Funny how it takes place 2 year after and everyone acts like "whats happening??" and that gravity gun is a joke!!! I cant believe they copied Half life 2 only one thing, you pickup an object and you can see anything in front of you! they copied HL2 and made it worst.! Good job! Expand

    Terrible, terrible game, cmon! try and be original! copying the half-life 2 grav gun word for word? how pathetic! halo 2 succeds where this game fails, and that is in every aspect imaginable. The final boss turns out to be a angel, and you have to kill him using the "love" of mankind. WTF! what were they smoking?! this is horrible! Wow! i still cant believe how much money i spent buying this game, they should have payed me to play it. stupid posers. Expand
