doom 3: resurrection of evil

Summary: This game expands on doom 3 with a couple of new games and a pistol with a flash light. i just recently got a regular xbox for a gift and i was looking for old reto games to buy for it. i loved the first doom and couldnt wait for the 4th one to come out so i bought this to hold me over. the game is an alright deal for the money i spent but i beat it in less then 5 hours. its definitely an expansion and not a full fledged game.
Summary: Just so that you know, Doom 3 is better, this add-on does not really add anything new besides the super shotgun and the new demon artifact. The biggest gameplay difference between Doom 3 and ROE is the the new demon artifact give you new powers that you can use after each new boss enemy has been slain, those powers include FEAR style slow motion mode, not being able to lose health, and inflicting super high amount of damage.
Summary: This is the expansion from Doom 3, so naturally it's not going to be the same length. Granted the price tag of thirty-five dollars for an expansion pack is extreme in itself. Honestly, it's ridiculous and should be longer than the average expansion. Unfortunately, after playing this, I don't think the story line should have been shorter. Maybe the production costs exceeded what the developers planned, or someone wants to cash in somewhere.
Review for the X Box version of Doom 3:Resurrection of Evil

Summary: If you enjoyed Doom 3, then you should enjoy this game. Both of the Doom 3 games are all about heaping on the tension; combining a creepy atmosphere with enemies that like to attack out of dark corners or from behind. It's definitely a different feel from FPS like, say, HALO, and maybe it's not for everyone. But I dug it. That being said, I do have some complaints about Resurrection of Evil...
Summary: The positive: Scary! It starts out fast, and gets you pumped up with fright right away. Plenty of gr-oss stuff to freak you out, MAN! The negative: I can't seem to figure out how to hold a weapon and a light at the same time. What the humphrey bogart is that on the end of my finger!?! How is it that a guy can't hold his pistol and his flashlight at the same time? With all the cool tech available to the guy in the game, why can't he equip his shotgun with his flashlight.
Summary: This is not a review of the RoE bit but the extras,Doom 1 works fine,Doom 2 always crashes/freezes on the last level and The Master levels are all messed up,not in the order that the PC is in and when I get to Virgil's Lead upon completion it skips to the beginning of the first level,likewise all the level names are messed up and the 'par' time for every level is 30 seconds!,anyone else had this problem?
Summary: d00m 3 on Xbox is awesome, especially the co-op mode that makes it helluva fun! Now Rusurrection of Evil (RoE) is on the Xbox. There is nothing much about this game, still like the d00m 3. With the scaryness, however this is just a additional game. The storyline doesn't last as long as d00m 3, infact this last tooo early! Graphics are the same, noting els! There is more to the gameplay, you can get a weapon that works like Half Life 2's gravity gun.
Summary: I have always loved first person shooters and I have both Halo games and pretty much all of the Quake and Doom games. If you look on the back of the game case for this game it looks really good. Unfortunately when you get into the game you have to fight monsters when you can't even see them cus the corridors are too dark!! Major down side and it got my goat pretty much all the way through the game. Other than that its pretty good.
Summary: The game looks good, but it is "polluted" by slowdowns in certain areas. The video discs you collect during game play can not be played either. Every 5 seconds or so it jumps. It is not by far as scary as the original. It seems rather short as well, and there are very few pda's with voice messages. And if you find any, the only message will be "Oh! I'm so scared..." and then you can hear the person getting killed.
Summary: essentially, this is an expansion pack. a new singleplayer campaign and also slight variations to existing multiplayer games plus new maps. tragically; the online coop mode has been removed. this was one of the main reasons i even considered getting the first game. coop online was enormously enjoyable when playing through with a friend; and i cant quite think of a reason why they devs decided to remove it from this sequel. this game is worth nothing more than 3 stars.
