Summary: For DOOM to work you need a Steam acount, During the registration proces the game dosn't always register corectly and when you try to play it gives you an eror that the video drivers for the game failed to load.
Summary: Major functionality in DOOM/DOOM II is disabled. Cannot even expand to full screen. This may be due to the Steam environment--dunno. Anyway, it stinks. I have a big monitor and a great video card, both of which are wasted here. DOOM III is fine, although different than the original in small ways that I found more annoying than worthwhile. I was looking forward to playing old school DOOM, but the disabled features completely ruined it for me.
Summary: Introduction: Doom 3 is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated PC games of all time, and it's no surprise that it is. Afterall, the original Doom started a whole new revolution in computer gaming that set a precedent for all future 3D first-person shooters to follow, even to the current day. There is no question the influence the Doom franchise has had on the industry and the reputation it has built up among the gaming community.
Summary: What can be said its a simplified corridor shooter that tries to use shadows,darkness and unimaginatively bland level designs to thrill the average gamer who thinks 5 hour long corridor shooters are the best games ever.... Necrovision and Daikatana are better than this film thats trying to be a game....
Summary: Pros: This game is scary. - graphics and sounds work very well together for horror themed game. - smooth physics & gameplay. - good for those who like scary stuff. - many elements added into the level design to intensify the scary mood (e.g. red fog usually represents dangers ahead; falling objects, subtle sound effects...
Summary: DOOM 3 is unfortunately a victim of its own hype. A Long dev time plus an Army of screaming fans that remember the FUN they had WAAAAAAY back when PC games were PONG and pacman and DOOM hit the screen with is 3D and multiplayer. But here in 2004, 3D is the Norm and anything that doesn't contain online multiplayer option with the ability to create mods, is frowned upon as " a bad show" What dose DOOM 3 do really well?? The graphics. Ill give them that.
Impressive lighting fails to brighten an otherwise dull game

Summary: Doom3 looks great. Read any review and somewhere in there it will state that fact. The graphics will leave you open-mouthed, slack-jawed, agog even. And rightly so. But good looks alone are not enough to save this game from the bargain-bin of mediocrity - or perhaps worse. The trouble is that although the graphics are good, they're probably too good; too over the top for a game of this style and this pace. Take the lighting effects for example - they are spectacular!
