I played it.. perhaps 1/3 way though..
then I didnt play for a while, then I picked it up again and it blew me away hehe, didnt stop until I finished it..
Sitting alone in the dark playing with 5.1 headphones freaked me out pretty good.
Great game IMO, not really the same type of game as HL2 and I dont like to compare them, so I wont..

Yeah the trick is to get to the better parts. Doom 3 does get a lot better with time but you gotta stick it out.

One man's trash is another man's treasure... Having said that, I loved this game. Easily the best game of 2004...

yeh agreed - its all about taste and DOOM3 is right up my street.

HL2 to me was just ....... bleh, I have yet to finish it.

CS:S however roxors, best thing to come from Valve this time around.

Doom 3 is much better for me taken in small doses. Say 30 minutes every day or so, not only does it still scare the hell out of me (walls crumpling and going red ) but it completely removes the sometimes tedious nature of the game.

Of course it's a Far Cry from HL2 or that other fps

You weren't the only one. Only reason I have it installed now is for benchmarking.

Default Re: finally decided to play doom3

you surprise me guys - I still cant work out what some people did'nt like about it.

I think some expected some super intense "outdoor" sunny FarCry or HL2 killer - urm guys did you actually play Doom 1 & 2??.

ID re-made Doom - which by nature was a simplistic game, Doom3 is that again with a beautiful engine to show it off. How and why people ever thought they were getting something else is beyond me.

Doom 3 is one of those games that personally you dont want to sit down and play for 4 hours straight because that can get tedious. I enjoyed playing it a half an hour to an hour every day. Its all gravy Doom 3 rocks, I hear Half Life 2 is good but I don't think I'll like it.

I played for an hour per day, and it never got stale or repetitive. The trick is to keep things fresh every time you sit to play the game. Best game of 2004.

agreed - doom3 in one sitting is a silly idea - an hour or so at a time is the way forwards, I cant wait for ROE!!!

I could beat doom III in one sitting. I couldnt do that with half life cause i feel like im gonna puke after 15 minutes. Can't do it with farcry cause i get pissed when I die and start to hit stuff.
