Dude. It's Hell. You don't exactly meet a lot of resistance when everybody there is a disembodied soul that you can affect but it can't affect you. And then how would they kill the soldiers? Uh... because they're demons, and I don't think that the USMC includes demonic phenomena in Basic Training?

I cant wait for it! I'm a bit of a eye-candy *****. Not only are the graphics gonna be amazing, but the sound and music by the fantastic Mr Reznor are also gonna be stunning!

The atmosphere just in the leaked alpha was great. I love mindless fp's. This is gonna be the best yet!

that doesn't explain how you the player, just a normal grunt, would then be able to wipe out all of Hell's forces then, would it

serious mode on: one of the great things about Half-Life were the battles between aliens and marines. no more deserted "million of them vs you" bull****. it added a lot of atmosphere to the game IMO. /serious mode off.

It also kills all replay value the game might offer. Knowing where the scripted enemy points are is extremely annoying the 2nd time through a game. At least when 40 enemies warp in at one time, you will always be at the disadvantage.

the zombies get back up because they're undead.......you can't kill what's not dead or alive...only injure it. Kinda like the Nazgul in the Lord of the Rings.

Then how come the zombies don't get back up after a few kills?

Doom3 will look great that is for sure, but Im not sure about the story, as always its pretty thin, heck even old resident evil have more story Im sure.

What Im really looking forward to is games based on the D3 engine. Games based on an already made engine usually turnout better then the original game, perhaps cos the programmer get more time to spend on just story and such and not having to build a game engine from scratch.

We will just have to wait and see

Wouldnt count on it, as it's heavily based around Quake3 engine and that was already pretty much streched to it's possibilities in Quake III

Unless there's a game that could actualy take advantage of small/dark levels

my mistake.....I'm still on the Two Towers. By the way, in the Doom III alpha, some of the zombies die from head wounds...others get right back up. Guess we won't know anything until the game ships.
