Excerpt: Doom 3 BFG edition is the HD upgrade to the successful game that released on the original Xbox, and the PC. The game is coming at you with quite a bit of extra content. In addition to the remake of Doom 3, we are also being given Doom and Doom 2 on the disc, as well as Doom 3 The Lost Mission, and The Resurrection of Evil Expansion. Resurrection of Evil is like an additional 8 level mini campaign.
Conclusion: The map is big and multi tiered and it looks beautiful up close but outside of boosting you will get zero out of it.

The disc contains Doom and Doom II, along with the original Doom 3, the Resurrection of Evil expansion pack, and seven new levels called the Lost Mission.
Conclusion: Doom 3: BFG Edition is still an enjoyable romp through armies of hellspawn, and if you've yet to play the Doom series, there's a lot to like here. Just be prepared for plenty of repetitive strafing and hours of fragging ugly demon ass. This is quite clearly the devil's work.
Excerpt: Doom 3 was a cutting-edge first-person shooter in 2004, but the intervening years have dulled its blade somewhat. The monsters and their movements now feel more hokey than horrifying, especially if you’ve faced the twisted nightmares that infest the Dead Space series. You’ll jump out of your skin a few times if you turn out the lights, but you’ll also wonder how anyone ever thought collecting locker and security-clearance codes provided sufficient excitement for the bulk...
Pros: + New, + Improved lighting; no more switching between gun and flashlight; three complete games and three add-ons.
