Improved Graphic Version Once you get it to work Online with Steam
8 February 2013
Summary: WELL, the only 3 things I don't like about this version is you have to use it through Steam, The save Games feature of DOOM 3 is very limited, and the game for me was difficult to get it to run initially. I believe that besides having to update my video card the only thing preventing me from playing was that msi afterburner software which shows the frame rate in the game had to be uninstalled then reinstalled later after installation of Doom.
Summary: the graphics menu is now very simple (on the PC version), compared to the original. Also, SLI is not supported on this version but then again you won't need it unless your going into 1300 res or above. The other original DOOM games that come with it are freakin awesome! Classics but the music needs to go.
Summary: I would only recommend buying this game if you want to see Doom 3 in 3D, or you have no qualms about the loss of mods or the censorship. Even then, supporting a move like this is difficult to justify. How much you lose by buying this version is very noticeable versus what you could gain. I would recommend tracking down the original games instead, even if they cost more these days.
Pros: Pros - - The new high-resolution textures. Running on ID Tech 5, the RAGE engine, this game looks even more gorgeous now than it did back in 2004. - Five games in one. You get Doom 1 (Ultimate) and 2, Doom 3, Resurrection of Evil, and the Lost Missions. If TNT and Plutonia from Final Doom were in this game as well, that would've been amazing.
Cons: Cons - - Censorship. I've noticed a lot of this while playing, mostly in the original Doom games you get with this title. The red crosses on med-kits and stim-packs are now red/white pills, and the secret Wolfenstein maps have been heavily censored, removing all (censored word) references/images, soldier skins, and even the Wolfenstein-esque MIDI music. As a result, these levels feel barren and boring. - No mod support. This was the big game-breaker to me, and if you ...
Summary: I've been a fan of the original releases, I have them all somewhere, thought I'd enjoy to play through this, however, the hardware, specifically the video card required, will force me to upgrade. My fault, should have done more looking at the requirements before purchase.
Summary: The original Doom3 also supports 1080p via editing the config files. You can now use a flashlight and a weapon at the same time, making the game easier. Yay. The question remains as to why any serious player would need or want this, as having to switch to the flashlight was a way the original game introduced a degree of necessary tension into the gameplay.
Pros: There are a couple of good points--it includes the original doom games, and you don't have to spend any time configuring DOSBox to get them working. Doom3 includes an extra mission and has 1080p support from within the game. An inexpensive way to get the entire Doom series to date if you don't mind a dumbed-down Doom3 with greatly reduced audio quality.
Cons: Doom3 BFG doesn't support EAX and the sound quality and sound effects are noticeably inferior compared to the original Doom3. Graphics quality really doesn't seem improved over the original to me. This package is a triumph of quantity over quality.
I have the original with the Resurrection of evil that i got for Rs1000

Summary: Its a great game but a little overpriced at Rs.2000. Looks like the same game with small tweaks that u can get for free with mods. If u have money to spare and don't own the original it is a great game But if u have the original, buying this BFG edition is pointless.

Excerpt: Doom 3 : The BFG editie 2004 First Person Shooter gemaakt door ID software( 18+) --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Introductie ID Software heeft een revolutie kunnen maken als het gaat over schietspelletjes. Want ze waren namelijk een van de eerste die Doom hadden uitgebracht. Wolfenstein was de eerste trendsetter om een 3D omgeving te introduceren en Doom werd hierop uitgebouwd, maar met een volledig ander verhaallijn.
Pros: lange gameplay, grafisch in orde, goede muziek en leuke omgevingen
Cons: het spel is vrij heftig voor gevoelige mensen
