Default Doom 3 re-visited

Hot damn is this a fun game! I was one of the many who played through the first hour and dumped it ....shame on me. (But give me credit for admitting my mistake) The first hour still sucks...but after that, it's all non-stop action. This game gets really good. Man...i'm so glad I re-installed it last night and gave it a shot. Funny thing is I re-installed it to use the benchmark and ended up giving it a go. Of course there are weak spots...not much of a story and lows res walls....but for what it is...a shoot-em up, kill the baddies, it's fun. And half the time your not even paying attention to the environments ...your too bust killing the monsters and worrying about what lurks around the next corner. Glad I gave it another chance. And tbh....graphically, it's still alot more impressive than 90% of what's out there.

I've already completed it twice and re-visit different level every couple of nights just to remind myself how damn good this game looks.

I'm really looking forward to the sdk being released, as a programmer I'm wanting to start seeing what else the engine etc can do.
The promised map with vechicle support is going to be really cool.

I was wondering if anyone else noticed the ID logo near the end of the game? Before you fight the final boss!

I noticed it. It's right before you break out into the open area where the boss is at I think.

Yeah, I was going GA-GA over Doom 3 when it first came out. I beat less than a week and MP wasn't all that fun after a while. I recently picked back up and started a new game with a harder difficulty. Pretty fun stuff. Can't wait for a little HL2 though.
