    Feels more like an "extension" rather than an "expansion". the game introduces the cool points (such as the Artifact and the Grabber) way too fast, then settles back into a routine pattern that follows perhaps too closely to Doom 3 (it should have branched out a little more than "oh my god, its happening again"). but, its still hella fun, and the new enemies are pretty cool. the DoubleFeels more like an "extension" rather than an "expansion". the game introduces the cool points (such as the Artifact and the Grabber) way too fast, then settles back into a routine pattern that follows perhaps too closely to Doom 3 (it should have branched out a little more than "oh my god, its happening again"). but, its still hella fun, and the new enemies are pretty cool. the Double Barrel Shotgun makes a nice return as well.

    I have recently beaten Halo 2, Doom 3 ROE, Far Cry and Brother In Arms. Doom 3 brings the best visual, the enviroment and graphic elements seem very real, awesome job. However... I expected far more from it. The single player experience was too s-h-o-r-t. Moreover, I think that the development team have wasted their enormous talent with a bad story line... flying skulls, monsters, demons I have recently beaten Halo 2, Doom 3 ROE, Far Cry and Brother In Arms.

This sounds more like a bad heavy metal lyrics. Shooting the double barrel shotgun was fun though. Expand

    It really seems like "okay weve got the new double barreled shotgun, the grabber tool and the heart of hell artifact...now we need an excuse to se them". From the very beginning this continuation played like ID is trying to milk every last drop out tof the biggest success theyve had in years. I can see them years from now making Doom 4 acting like the events of Doom 3 ROE never It really seems like "okay weve got the new double barreled shotgun, the grabber tool and the heart of hell artifact...now we need an excuse to se them". From the very beginning this continuation played like ID is trying to milk every last drop out tof the biggest success theyve had in years. I can see them years from now making Doom 4 acting like the events of Doom 3 ROE never happened...just like they did with 2 in making 3 in the first place. And the sloppy Bink video playback ingame makes no concessions to the fact that the XBOX has three different known DVD drive brands (Thompson at worst, Samsung at best and Phillips in between)...so the stuttering video disks were scarier than the actual monsters.

    I really liked doom 3 and was quite excited for an expansion though It did get a bit boring after a while of playing it. I guess the new stuff they added was quite fun and interesting but it still felt like a drag on from doom 3

  1. Nerve has stuck enough diverse tweaks into the format to make for a thrilling, admittedly more terrifying experience. Resurrection of Evil is a much better game than "Doom III." Trust me.
  2. The inclusion of the early Doom games with multiplayer is a great perk which really increases the longevity of this package, which is pretty important because this game is pretty short.
  3. 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.
