Re: Disappointments in doom 3
You should never compare anything to an alpha that you were never supposed to see. Every game has tons of cool features pulled before release.
The flashlight is a design decision. It has nothing to do with being a "competent marine". I think it adds to the game. If you could always see bright and clear then what's the point of the lights being down in the 1st place. You choose: weapon ready or see whats coming =) I love it.
I also think HL borrowed a lot from iD's games heavily of that era. They all do it.
