Conclusion: Very entertaining and one of the few true co-op games out there, I think Doom 3 got the right hype but for the wrong reasons. A solid FPS horror shooter in a genre of generic and simple-minded competitors.
Excerpt: Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is considered by many to be the pinnacle of PlayStation 2 gaming. It was the third GTA game on the console and delivered a gaming experience far larger and more diverse than any other game on that console - perhaps on any platform.
Summary: Doom 3 is a scary romp into the dark trenches of the mind that is ironically using a formula used for games of the same name for the past fifteen years. Add in fantastic visuals, glorious sound, and a little bit of multiplayer and you have a pretty scary and solid experience that everyone should at...
Excerpt: With its 1993 debut, iD Software's Doom quickly became a classic - a legend, even. And though relatively straightforward in comparison to what is on offer today, Doom's simple puzzles and first-person action were second to none, and the same is true of Doom II, Final Doom and any other family...
Conclusion: Doom 3, on PC or Xbox, is a worthwhile experience. Paying full price for the single-player campaign alone might be a mistake; besides the graphics, there's really nothing you haven't seen before.
Excerpt: “I’m a space marine. I’m the best of the soldiers out there. Yet I literally just shat my pants when a demon jumped in front of me!” This, my friends, is just one of the thoughts that will probably cross your mind while playing through Id's new xbox game Doom 3 , and there is plenty more where that...
Pros: Graphics, Sound, Atmosphere, Scare Factor
Cons: Game play grows tiresome, Battle modes could have more, No offline split screen battle mode
Conclusion: The Xbox port is quite remarkable in that they we able to port it to the existing Xbox hardware. Just think about the fact that you can play this game on a $150 Xbox and have the same graphical experience as a $3000 tricked out PC.
Excerpt: Doom 3, love it or hate it, brought with it a new dimension to the series and a new benchmark in graphics. The PC version was a straight up, linear, slaughter-fest. The XBox version is boasting co-op multiplayer over LIVE, so how does this Doom stack up? Laurie has the scoop.
Conclusion: As long as you can live with the lower-than-normal-Xbox-quality graphics (you will, as long as you understand why they are what they are), Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is a must experience, must buy title for the Xbox.
