Doom 3 has aged remarkably well. Even today, it retains a relatively pleasing visual appeal. Its ambient sounds and atmosphere are truly exceptional. Despite having completed it numerous times over the years since its release, I still find myself startled and experiencing unsettling sensations at night while wearing headphones. (Something that modern horror games struggle to achieve.) The level design was crafted by a genius; believable maps like these are a rarity even in the present day. One genuinely feels as though they are navigating through a functional facility. If hell truly exists, then within it, Dr. Betruger will be haunting you with his eerie laughter.
One fantastic thing about Doom 3 is that the game gets better the more you play it, and the further you get, the better the weapons, the bigger the monsters, the more diverse the environments, and the greater the thrills.
While the visual depiction of the demons is easily Doom 3's strong point, the A.I. driving them is perhaps its weakest -- and the one thing that keeps the game from becoming a true masterpiece. In short, these guys are dumb.
El alma de los Doom anteriores pero en una carcasa diferente. A diferencia de la mayoría de personas DOOM 3 se me hizo muy divertido y disfrutable a lo largo de toda su campaña. La ambientación mas sombría y oscura es un buen cambio para la saga y funciona perfectamente, su mayor problema creo que es el diseño de niveles, muy diferentes a lo que se conocía en anteriores entregas, el 80% del juego son pasillos muy pequeños y sin luz.
The great return of a terrific incomplete saga. I see that many people enjoyed it. Unfortunately it is not my case. Obviously it was a big leap for id Software to leave this old-school range to propose a brand new content to players around the world.
Graphics are bad to me. Not terrible but wow bad : poor textures, no colours, terrible effects, and everything is dark. Like boys, it's too much. We can't see a thing from beginning to end here ! Cinematics are a nightmare. Sound design and effects are okay. Weapons are unimpressive and particularly uneffective even against basic opponents. Interacting with codes and PDAs is really intuitive and well thought out. In general, the gameplay is really boring. You only have to follow long and empty halls and corridors. Progressing through levels is a pain in the neck, especially for the five first hours. Five hours : do you realize how long it is ? Enemies sometimes pop here and there but we are miles away from the intensity I knew for DOOM the 1st and II. Multiplayer is a big mess. AI is awful. The story is dull.
Nothing to dream about for sure. Don't waste your time here.
What? This? You call this game comparable to Half life 2? No, it's not, its just "that" game in great game series which is weird and doesn't feet. Actually when this game arrived, there was not so many good games in that time, that's why it got this score but no no no, it didn't aged well at all, unlike half life 1 and 2, gameplay is boring and linear, story is non existing, guns are all the same. I didn't enjoy it when it came out, and i know that no one said that this is the best game ever, and now i see that fake reviews existed long time ago. I didn't remember anything epic from this game. This game aged like dead body - its skeleton now.
Summaryid Software's terrifying battle with the forces of Hell. A massive demonic invasion has overwhelmed the Union Aerospace Corporations’ (UAC) Mars Research Facility leaving only chaos and horror in its wake. As one of only a few survivors, you struggle with shock and fear as you fight your way to Hell and back, in an epic clash again...
