Summary: All the doom without the gloom Mention DOOM 3 to most fans, and the common (disparaging) response will be, "Monster Closets." Earning criticism for its jump scares, lack of charisma, and stylistic departure from previous DOOM titles, DOOM 3 has not aged well in the eyes of most fans.
Excerpt: Let’s get this out of the way: I was a big fan of the original 2004 release of DOOM 3. I was a big apologist, too. I’ve mellowed out about how much vim and vigour I put into my ‘DOOM Defence’ and I’ve come to accept that, perhaps, it wasn’t
Excerpt: was one of my favorite games when I first played it almost eight years ago. It was freaky, challenging, filled with thrills and chills, and was essentially a combination of first-person shooter and survival/horror themes and mechanics.
Excerpt: I loved this game when it first came out, and was thrilled to see it released for the PS3. id software and Bethesda pulled out all the stops on this revamp, putting out a title packed with extras which looks great and still manages to scare the #$@* out of me!
Summary: Another High Definition remake has hit our shelves in the form of Doom 3 BFG, featuring Doom and Doom II as bonuses. Cav shoulders his own BFG and heads down to face the minions of Hell and Nostalgia.
Pros: Three games in one means good value for money. New content included for Doom 3. 3D option for those who can do it.
Cons: Unpolished remake doesn't improve enough. Terrible loading and autosave intrudes on gameplay. Transition between titles is awkward and poorly thought out.
Conclusion: Doom 3 was a strange experience, even back when it was first released. It was graphically revolutionary for its time, especially in how it handled lighting, and it had some of the most realistic shadows ever seen. From a gameplay perspective it had little in common with its predecessors.
Pros: + Package is rich on content. + Parts of the visuals still hold up. + Doom and Doom II are timeless classics.
Cons: - The gameplay in Doom 3 quickly grows repetitive. - The audio side is weak. - Comes across as unnecessary.
Summary: Doom 3: BFG edition is dus niet alleen de ultieme verzameling voor elke fan, maar ook de kans voor elke leek om deze geweldige serie te ontdekken. De game voelt wat oud aan, maar de geweldig enge omgeving en het iconische karakter van deze game compenseren dit ruimschoots.
Pros: Sfeerscheppende omgeving, Erg goed verhaal, Constant spannend, Bevat alle Doom games
Cons: Voelt wat oud aan, The Lost Missions zijn niet erg spectaculair
