Default Re: What would you rate Doom 3 on a scale of 1-10?

Just beat it about an hour ago ...

I've gave it a 7 because of mainly what Ed and Sazar said -- it's a gorgeous looking game but it's lacking in the substance department (repetitive and predictable gameplay, no replay value, garbage multiplayer). I'll also add that it might have been a tad too long for my tastes (I thought visiting Hell was the final level of the game ... but it kept going!) In a nutshell, Doom 3 is basically a demo of Carmack's latest brainchild when it comes to engines but with a slightly above average game tacked on -- and that's a compliment since most of Id Software's previous releases over the past 4-5 years have been sub-par to mediocre single player games tacked onto excellent engines.

Will "Soldier Of Fortune 3" use the Doom 3 or Quake 4 engine is the question on my mind right now.
