The expansion pack continues right where the original leftFollowing 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.

    The multiplayer has improved with the introduction of this expansion pack and I am truly amazed at how fluid this game runs even with eight players on a high speed connection.

    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]

    More monsters to kill and guns to shoot them with. You were expecting, maybe, a love story? [Aug 2005, p.72]
  5. Resurrection of Evil ultimately fails on innovation but perhaps just as importantly succeeds with expansion. It’s more of the same, for better or for worse.
  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.

    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.

    Doom 3 was mediocre at best, and Resurrection of Evil can't be called "mediocre" under any circumstances. "Horrendous" will do just Doom 3 was mediocre at best, and Resurrection of Evil can't be called "mediocre" under any circumstances. "Horrendous" will do just fine. The graphics haven't changed at all, making them the best part of the game by far. The sound and level design are the same, as well. Also on the "developer too stubborn to change it" list is the inability to hold a flashlight and a gun at the same time. It makes for some extremely frustrating moments. Basically, id took a game that was slightly below average, and re-released it again, after the gamers have played superior games such as Resident Evil 4 and Half-Life 2. This just makes it too difficult, as we have to make the transition from great to horrid. Expand

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
