96%

Wonder how much they paid for that score :p

They gave Doom 3 a 94% and you guys all hated it.

Problem with doom was that on the surface its great, and it's not a horrible game. But once you sink your teeth into it, play it through once... it's done. Yet another dust magnet.

i sure hope the 94% isnt how doom 3 was. i would like a game that really is a 96%.

Oh I'm not here to argue Doom 3's merits. PC Gamer is notorious for writing gushing reviews, especially for big titles like this. Then again, I usually agree with them, but in my experience with most people there's quite a lot of room for debate (Warcraft III for example, which I love, but almost all my friends hate - mostly because they suck at it).

The question in my mind isn't if it'll be worth the $50 - it will almost certainly be worth that. Doom 3 was worth the money, IMO, and the mods that will eventually happen for it will also be worth it. The question is whether or not Half-Life 2 is going to be the second coming of Half-Life, which is arguably one of the games that I have spent the most time playing over the years.

HL2 will be boring too once you beat it.

They gave Quake 3 a 75% when it came out. I think their opinions are still valid.

Eh, maybe. Did you think Half-Life was boring once you beat it?

I think for big games like D3/HL the base score is 9 and the real score is the ones digit :) (a user on B3D said that...and I liked it)
