We had Doom 3 here at work on our games network a few weeks ago. It's an alright game as far as shooters go, but it's a bit on the dark side, which IS the effect they are aiming for.. so I guess they succeeded.
It's just another shooter with new weapons and textures as far as I'm concerned.
Wolfenstein is a great game. It is a fun game that has a good story. The graphics are pretty good. I think it is good that developers started make some revamped games from the past like doom and wolfenstein.
About it being dark i hated having to scroll to my flashlight but then i downloaded a mod so now i have flashlight built into all my guns. I like it it does get a little boring after playing it a while. I think half-life2 will be better story wise, but judgng from the counter strike source graphics and half-life2 screeshots doom3 has better graphics(the shading and lighting in that game are so great).
A lot of the new games though are just a bunch of fluff, with no good story line and just a bunch of good graphics that slows done your computer. Thats why I feel these new editions to the series are good.
I m not happy with Doom 3, it didnt offer anything new or exciting, only exception is the graphics. It's like unreal tournament 2003-- both disappointed me. However, Unreal Tournament 2004 rocks. I think Half-life 2 and Unreal Tournament 2004 will rule the next generation of FPS. As for Doom 3 -- I think they should try to give the gamers a better gameplay along with the State-of-the-art Graphics Engine. We gamers die for gameplay not for the Graphics. When I think of my favourite FPSs I find Unreal Tournament, Unreal Tournament 2004, Halo, Serious Sam, Return to castle wolfenstein but unfortunately Doom 3 doesnt fall into that category.

the engine does make the game.. ..i was looking forward to the console release
of DOOM 3..
i played doom 3 too dark you have to put down the flashlight to use the gun which annoyes me and the story is lame i used to think that half life was going to be great but now after playing doom 3....who knows maybe the game will rock the world tough i heard that valve was in court again who knows???
if you download the mod for the game then the flashlight is built into the gun they have a billion of them at gamershell. The story is kind of lame but they tried to keep it true to the original storyline. Just be glad your not playing wolf3d.
Well I saw the trailer for HL2 and I am convinced that it will be better than Doom 3. It will be better because the game play will be good and the game engine is probably revolutionary. Also I think they added a lot of cool features into it. The only thing I don't see yet is the relation from the first one because some how it continues, hope they explein that.
Doom 3 rocks, Scary as hell, and even harder. So far i just sent out the transmission (not sure what would have happend if i cancled the transmission but o well. just gives replay value to the game) I honestly think its the best First person shooter that i have played so far this year, based on graphics, and mood. Though when it comes to the plot its a little lacking.
I run the game on lowest res with all the settings for graphics turned on accept AA. Runs good on my machine.
I can run the game on medium settings without it affecting my pc and like i posted before the story line could use some work but the graphics are sick. It is a little boring after a while of walking through dark room after dark room.
I'm surprised I was able to stop playing long enough to comment, but so far I think it's a good game. Most people's comments are spot-on: it's just an updated version of the original. I originally didn't like the idea of switching back and forth between the flashlight and the weapons, but I've stuck with it for the fear factor.
I think Half-Life 2 is going to be awesome. If you've seen the 30-minute video on it, there is a lot to look forward to. Hopefully the November '04 release date is for real!
Graphic-wise, I am running the game at 1024x768 w/ shadows turned off and I get about 38 FPS. Not great, but playable. Maybe in a few years we'll have computers that can actually play this game with all of the bells & whistles turned on! Most of the comments have been about the graphics...I think they look cool, but has anybody played FarCry? It looks just as good and runs a lot smoother, even in the huge outdoor environments. However, DOOM 3 does an excellent job with the audio. I only have a 4.1 surround system and am considering upgrading to 5.1 to see if that makes it even better.
Well, that's enough chit chat, I got me some demons to frag!
no last month was the pre-loading of HL2, now you are able to pre-order(see the difference). When you pre-order it you can automatically play counter-strike:source. They have three packages to choose from when you pre-order on Steam. One with HL2, CS:S, DOD:S, HL1:S, all of the previous half-life based games, posters, a hat, a postcard, and some other stuff for 89.99. The other packs are 59.99 and 49.99. It should be coming out soon. I predict sometime in early November, if not earlier.
