Conclusion: or not, this extension is a worthwhile endeavor all its own. The single player experience may prove to be a little too linear at times, but the inclusion of some nifty weapons helps things along.

Excerpt: Doom 3, both on PC and Xbox fared well in sales and oddly in critical acclaim. Of course, we gave it its due justice. Resurrection of Evil, the standalone expansion for the PC, was developed by Nerve who proved they could make a more interesting version of id's own game.
Conclusion: For 15 quid or thereabouts this is of course by no means a bad game, and Doom 3 RoE never failed to entertain and scare me right until the end, but whilst playing it through I found that after a couple of hours play I’d had enough and had to go play something else.
Pros: Scary as hell., The graphics (when you can see them) are gorgeous., Possibly the best use of sound yet makes the game incredibly atmospheric.
Cons: Too dark – it’s just overdone., Where’s the co-op mode gone?, It’s a bit short., Two “borrowed” features from other famous games smack of desperation., Disappointing deathmatch options and no split screen., It’s still just not Doomy enough – too much of a departure from the original formula.
