Summary: Doom 3 is a landmark phenomenon, no matter which way you look at it. In terms of sheer graphical brilliance, the game is simply unmatched, and will likely continue to be the reigning king for some time to come.
Excerpt: Date: 7/19/2005 DOOM 3: Resurrection of Evil (RoE) is the first expansion pack to last year’s DOOM 3. RoE picks up the same storyline as the original, but a year or so after the events in DOOM 3.
Excerpt: Well, it’s been some time since a superhype game came out to grace our screens, and today we celebrate that day – Doom 3 is upon us. That is, it’s been upon us since August 2nd, but that is but a minor detail.
Conclusion: Battlefield 2 is the best game of its type we've seen to date. The squad system and commander mode go a long way toward bringing some much-needed organization to the chaos of multiplayer combat.
Excerpt: I've just finished playing through Doom 3, one of the most highly anticipated PC games in the past several years. Sure, I could have ripped through it faster, but I think I enjoyed it a lot more this way.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Doom 3, on PC or Xbox, is a worthwhile experience. Paying full price for the single-player campaign alone might be a mistake; besides the graphics, there's really nothing you haven't seen before.
Excerpt: How the hell (no pun intended) did Vicarious Visions get DOOM 3 to run so well on the Xbox? When id Software released DOOM 3 to a hungry PC crowd, I had no idea I would have the horsepower to run it so smoothly. In fact, it ran even better than the overrated Half Life 2.
Conclusion: Players who are expecting a Halo killer will be disappointed as the action here is not quite so frenetic and the maps are much more claustrophobic. However, that being said, Doom3 for the Xbox should be a title that all FPS fans should add to their library.
Pros: Great graphics, Co-Op play, nifty extras if you get the collector's edition;
