Summary: 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. This particular fan, however, disagrees with consensus.
Excerpt: Doom ‘s legacy as one of the pillars of the first-person shooter genre is unquestionably secured as it approaches its twentieth anniversary. Few games can claim to be so influential, and it comes as no surprise in the HD era there’s a new retail release commemorating the occasion. Doom 3 is an entirely different story.
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

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.
