If you didn't play it when it first came out, you probably won't be impressed now

Summary: I'm generally a fan of Id games but the appeal has always been more about graphics than gameplay. As the games get older and the graphics get less cutting-edge, their appeal is more about nostalgia. However, I didn't play Doom 3 back in the day, so without the nostalgia, it just seems like a subpar shooter. I played for a few hours and put the game away.
Summary: So, I got Doom 3 the day it came out. I was thinking to myself, "oh this looks cool." Big mistake. I bought it and when I got back to college I played it for about an hour. IT'S SO BORING! You just run around in circles killing "demons" (not scary at all). There is no variety of enemies. Most of the time you have no clue where you are going and there is no way to find out unless you just really really like it and bear with it.
Summary: A o.k. Game what more can I say other than there are far more better first person perspective games out there. On the plus side as a sheer adrenaline rush nothing really beats it the strong feeling of anxiety playing this game at night with the lights off and the sound pumped up high as you play through a level and being jumped by a horde of hellish creatures and or solders with chain guns and shot guns as you battle to stay alive under overwhelming odds trying to battle...
Summary: Not as good as i remember it, even though the older cames graphic's where not the state of the art they are to day, i just remember the older versions been good fun, fast and full on action, the new Doom3 is slow and not the best playable game around, there are far better game of this platform out there, the only good thing is u do get the two earlier versions on this dics, which is a bonus, even though they are dated games now, there still more fun than the new version.
Summary: The question is weather you should buy it or not? so all I can give you is a quick summary. The graphics were fine though it does spend a long time loading. Great monsters, gore, zombies and even spiders. Weapons OK but could be better and with a bit more humph. Good environments, I particularly enjoyed Hell but then that's just me.
3D a disappointment, but it's worth it for the originals.

Summary: Doom 3 was hotly anticipated among my crowd, but ultimately disappointed as it was not the same KIND of game as the originals. We missed the massive amounts of enemies, the open spaces and the fast-paced insanity. Technologically speaking, there are still things happening in Doom 3 I'm impressed by, but as a GAME, it was... Okay. EDIT: Actually, it's better than I remembered. It starts off slow, but once you get used to the way it plays, it's actually quite a bit of fun.
Summary: I chose to buy Doom 3 because I heard so much about this game for the PS3 by my friends that it was so good to play. Also I have seen my friends play Doom which I liked and made me want to this game.
Summary: Well, nostalgia ain't what it used to be. I remember playing these games (1 and 2 anyway) in the mid-90s and loving them. However, they look and play extremely dated now. Was really dissapionted. I suppose you forget how far graphics have travelled in the intervening years. Doom 3 DOES play well though and the graphics are excellent, so, if you're making the purchase for this, then go ahead and buy.
Great to finally have PS3 version, but no centre channel sound!

Summary: This is a generally great port of Doom 3 for the PS3, except for one glaring omission. The sound! Weapons are muffled and distant, and there is a good (or bad) reason why - there is no centre channel sound via a PS3 connected with hdmi to a surround sound amplifier. The only way to get centre channel sound is to go into the PS3 audio settings and manually select linear pcm 2 channel (as opposed to 'auto' which has worked fine with every other game I've ever played) then...
