  • Summary: Reload your weapons for the first expansion pack to Doom 3. In Resurrection of Evil, you'll return to the abandoned facilities of Mars to investigate a mysterious beacon buried deep in the ruins of an ancient civilization. This time, you can wield new weapons, such as the double-barreled shotgun, and control time and gravity to defeat your enemies, which include six new demons. The expansion also adds all-new eight-player arenas for capture-the-flag matches. Expand

  1. A great game, just as scary as its predecessor. It is lengthy enough to count as a full game, and with the extra content and new levels, this game delivers on all gaming fronts.
  2. Unfortunately the game can be beat in a mere six to eight hours, which just feels too short even when taking into consideration its mission pack status.
  3. The framerate is smooth, the controls are mostly standard for the genre and the game does not require you to think too much – but you had better react quickly.
  4. The expansion doesn't stray too far from the action of the original, but the new levels, new weapons, and increased focus on action make "more of the same" a fun little adventure.
  5. It's an artfully executed add-on pack that doesn't sacrifice any of the things that made Doom 3 great. But it doesn't do anything but tighten up the experience a little.
  6. 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.
  7. A true expansion in every sense of the word.

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

    Ummm...It is an expansion. So um yeah...its basically the same game. And If I recall back to several months ago, a really good game at that. Buy it if you liked the first, don't if you didn't. Make sense doesn't it. Expand

    One of the games that I still play on my XBox. 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. Expand

    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 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 and zombies that pop out from nowhere? 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 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.
