  1. It's business as usual as this expansion retains the essence of the original, with the addition of new weapons and redesigned levels, expect for the disappointing online play.
  2. When I finished playing Resurrection of Evil, the one question I had was why a bunch of stupid demons are able to consistently own humans on Mars when they are outwitted by a sidestep.
  3. A perfect example of style over substance. On its technical side it's a flawless example of what can be done with the right technology in the right hands. In terms of content, however, it falls flat on its face by offering an extremely linear experience with very little replay value that ends up feeling more like walking through a carnival spook house than the trip through hell that it should have been.

    More of the same, the enemies still aren't any smarter and the environments are still a little repetitive, but fans of the previous title should be well entertained with the game.
  5. This is a strange instance where an expansion is actually better suited for new players than returning vets.
  6. The best part is, unlike PC users, you don't need save data from Doom 3 in order to enjoy it, and enjoy it you probably will. I just wish there was a little more to it, especially since the last quarter of game is quite rushed.
  7. For a game that's supposed to be a horror game, the formula it relies on is so repetitive that after 20 minutes you've seen all the scares, not to mention all the environments you need to see.
  8. Just like with Doom 3, RoE works best if you're afraid of the dark, but sadly most of us have outgrown that fear long ago.
  9. The Doom experience remains streamlined and ruthlessly efficient, lacking the epic scope that we've come to associate with other first person shooters.
  10. I'm a firm believer that graphics are a very small portion of what makes a great game great. Take away the pretty graphics in Resurrection of Evil, and what do you have? An extremely repetitive first person shooter that tries to be scary and doesn't even do that all that well.

Doom 3 ROE is pretty much the same game as Doom 3, but it IS an expansion. The same demon killing, flashlight waving, PDA reading game as before. But that's not really a bad thing really. ROE also comes bundeled with the Classic Doom games, so you practically get 4 games for half the price of a regular game. It's fun, frantic and great value for money. Full Review »

    This is a jewel for anyone looking for a fast-paced, action packed suspense adventure. The enemies are ferocious. The gameplay is intense.
