Summary: I like to have games I can co-op with a friend. This game says it offers co-op on the back panel, but there is a caveat. It only offers co-op on Doom and Doom 2, NOT on Doom 3! Also, if you install the game to the Xbox 360 hard drive you'll find that it will not allow you to play Doom or Doom 2 unless you uninstall it. What a huge pain in the butt! I'm barely past the first stage and I already want to trade this in. At best this is a $20 game, definitely not worth $40.
Summary: The inability to play Doom and Doom II from HDD is completely baffling and unacceptable, considering that both games are also available on Xbox Live Arcade and can clearly be run from the HDD. This should definitely have been worked out before release. It is absolutely unreasonable to expect customers to uninstall a game to play two major parts of its content, when the other main part can be played from the HDD just fine. It makes no sense whatsoever.
Pros: *Doom, Doom II, and Doom 3 w/expansion and new content on one low priced disc. *HD reskin, while not up to today's standards, still an improvement over previous console version of Doom 3. *Doom 3 is still a fun and reasonably startling experience. *Additional content, despite reusing some level elements from the core game, is fun and extends the experience. Some of it has never been released previously. *Autosaves save a lot of frustration and tedium.
Cons: *Flashlight no longer casts dynamic shadows, despite other light sources in the game doing so (including NPC lights, such as that of the scientist who guides you through one area and the robot sentries.) Detrimentally impacts the "haunted house" look and feel of the original version, making it slightly less of a scary experience. *Flashlight being equip-able along with weapons cuts down on the tension and fear considerably. No option to play without this change. *I've...
Summary: DOOM 3 LOOKED AMAZING but sadly isn't the graphics were amazing for 2004 and now row run at a steady 60fps which is smooth enough now it also gives a great deal of content. But the content is bad the reason why I was expecting more also the biggest point of annoyance is that it doesn't tell me what to do so I get lost eventually I gave up on the game which is a shame.
Summary: I played all the content on the disc. The original Doom and Doom 2 also have the original graphics so aren't going to be of much interest to most. Which is a shame because gaphics aside they bear comparison. The modern Doom 3 is slick and well laid out but overall the game lacks imagination and depth. Pitching it as a homage to the original is frankly a cop out. Better acting would help as would more varied level design.
Summary: If like me you played the original I think you'll be disappointed! Graphically tweeked to the max yes, but it's glitchy and the AI is at times amazingly dumb but a lot of the time so switched on your every move is pre-empted and you'll be damaged no matter what you do! In fairness I can't give a full review because after 3 chapters this disc was forever consigned to the never to be played again pile!
Summary: i bought this game mainly because i wanted the expansion packs as i already own doom on the original xbox, so i thought i may as well buy the complete package. Doom 3 has been completely redone there are sections been removed or reversed and new levels added in, also the controls have changed, you can no longer strafe around enemies, which made the original a whole lot easier.
