Summary: I had originally downloaded a free version of DOOM from CNET, and I also had to use DOSBOX for it to work. The thing is, the graphics weren't too good. On this version, the graphics are much better. I've played DOOM and DOOM 2 from this Steam version, but DOOM 3 seems too slow to start up, and it's difficult to determine where to walk in the game. I just want to start the game and start shooting monsters, not go through 20 steps in order to play.
Summary: love the doom series and this is an excellent nostalgic feel from playing the original port from 2004. the only thing I did not like about this is the fact that the ultra video settings (graphics settings) have been removed so you can not run this game any better then in High settings (without modding) so it falls a little short compared to the original 2004 release , which gives you a feeling of playing it on xbox360 or playstation3 (which I own).
Summary: I'm a Doom3 fan. When it first came out way back when on Xbox, I bought it and was scared out of my mind. It's a very dark and creepy game set on Mars. I only wish they made it so that you have to swap between the flashlight and a weapon like in the original version. Having access to the light while shooting takes away from the idea of being in the black and having a monster run at you. Remember- this is an old game.
Good but not playavle on the laptop I played DOOM 3 classic on.

Summary: BFG Edition unexpectedly had higher video card requirements. There were unresolvable issues over OGL versions and drivers. The game is awesome for its original content, but not forgiving of backward compatibility.

Summary: Game does not work on all Windows 7 desktops. Kept failing on one computer saying windows failure will notify when fix is available?? Since product has been out on the market for this long that should have been corrected by now with a fix already in place!!
Summary: This is one of those games that you end up needing to utilize the Steam software to run (my Call of Duty was the same way). only with this game I kept gettting error messages and interrupts just as the game began to initiate. I uninstalled and reinstalled several times and tried using the Steam "tech support" (worthless) and finally contacted Bethesda tech support directly and they had me do a couple of things and then gave me exact instructions on how to get the game to...
