I dont understand whats the point of beta? single player beta??? or are they introducing MP in doom? or are they turning it into COD? I really hope it will be good but i have bad feeling about it now. Doom 3 was great. probably best in series. dark girtty atmospheric with suspense and surprises.

nah doom 3 sucked dick and balls, but with that sad it still blows me away graphically,

ima sucker for hard lighting, and usually I just pop it in to marvel at the character designs.

but if wolfenstein is good I will get it and the beta since my pc is up to snuff.

doom 3 doesnot suck. back in 2004 it was amazing and still good. it sure was not Half life 2 but was good game.

for doom 2 lot of ppls are nostalgic. it was great for it time but doom 3 done everything better.

I sincerely have no idea why do people bitch that much about Doom 3. It was a great game. A pure example of a great corridor shooter with an old-school atmosphere and gameplay mechanics.

I sure hope it's CoDified.

Also lol at needing Gold Membership, but not PS Plus.

they did everything different from doom 2, there was nothing from the preceding games that made it into doom 3.

I think ID Software took more cues from the resident evil series than it did from the doom series.

they thought the game should've been a horror, but the reason the doom 1 and 2 were scary was because the enumerable odds against you,

a sense of urgency, awareness and self preservation that was lost in 3,

but doom 3 was alright, but on its own it sucked balls and horse cock and to me,

is not a true doom game, I think quake 1 was more or less the true doom 3, it had everything that made doom 1 and 2 great.

but do u realise that doom 1/2 is now too old. and not age well while doom 3 is still good.

flashlight was great adition to series.

also u can explore more in doom 3 than doom 2 which was just action.

everything in doom 3 is just cosmetic and takes away from the gameplay,

if doom 1 & 2 was done in doom 3s engine you would feel differently,

doom 3's gameplay aged terribly compared to those 2,

it isn't even competent as a horror game if you know where every monster will be in the second playthrough.

and yes I know doom 1/2 is old, but both is still better than doom 3.

have you even played doom 1 and 2 before?

#16 Posted by SNIPER4321 (10142 posts) -

just call it "closet monster flashlight fighter"

it does not deserve the doom name,

it is nothing like doom, but if you enjoy it hey,

good for you,

but I hope that doom 4 is nothing like doom 3,

since there hasn't been games like doom2 in a long time,

and its been long overdue and will probably cause a resurgence in gameplay focused games.

it is so weird to say that but that is the state of the industry,

we need more gameplay focused games.

p.s

I still don't think you played the older doom games

#19 Posted by hehe101 (565 posts) -

I never played a doom game strangely enough, however if this is a reboot coming for next gen, i'm looking forward to it, isn't there any trailers or anything?

#20 Posted by Wasdie (49540 posts) -

Sounds like they are ditching cross-gen and just making it for the current gen consoles. Awesome.

word, it took nothing from doom 2, it wasn't even remotely hard on nightmare.

only 4 monsters at max, damn,

doom 3 broke my heart when It came out,

but it I still fun to look at, that hard lighting.

the tech made the game worthy to slog through,

and id tech 4 finally came into its own with "the dark mod"

hopefully hexen edge of darkness carries it for another 10 years.

I wasn't much a fan of Doom three because I don't really like shoorters unless they were open world, but I watched a few people play and there was one thing about it I adored.

I watched veteran shooters stare at health boxes and ammo for several seconds while they made value judgements, sometimes choosing to pass the prize right on by. I have never seen that happen in a shooter since then. One time I almost died laughing as the person I was watching decided he would outsmart the expected trap by turning around and backing into the health box, only to have an Imp rake his back for his cleverness.

I liked that. It got players spooked into thinking "This... this might be a trap..." which is more credit then I see players giving the redshirts in any first person shooter. Maybe there is a lot of things wrong with Doom 3, I mean I didn't like it. They however nailed atmosphere. One person fighting hundreds or thousands should feel incredibly vulnerable and stressed, and that is exactly how lots of Doom players felt. I don't think many players felt that way since the innovation of automatically recharging health/shields.

pc only, its a mod akin to the dark mod

just for reference,

the dark mod is a thief remake that is awesome,

not sure how it compares to thief 4, but I like it.

@SNIPER4321: I don't even know if I want this game. I'm up still on the fence. I've been hearing some good thing about it, but I'm still not sure. Doom 3 was pretty good for me. Great graphics for its time on the PC.

When he says "Yes," what he means is "Yes, but only on XBLA." ....

Will be doom in name only.

Introducing MP in doom? All 3 doom games had multiplayer, it isn't exactly a new thing to the series

maybe they will make a proper next gen doom. I wish they make it right but i won't get my hopes up.

Because 8.5/10 is a bad score, apparently.

I loved it. Played it for months. It's no Hell on Earth, but it's excellent.

#34 Edited by AcidTango (501 posts) -

Doom 1 and 2 will always be the top kings. Liked it better then Doom 3 though it was a ok game. Doom 4 I don't have any faith in it unless they are able to make it really good.

I gave it a look after your post, looks interesting.

Is the Dark Mod a mod for the old thief or is it a standalone mod on a newer engine ?

its a standalone mod,

but you have to download the missions,

2 good ones off the top of my head would be "no honor among thieves" and "gatehouse"

I think its awesome, if the combat system is a bit much just put auto-parry in the options menu,

same goes with the lock picking mechanic, it is a very flexible game.

I've seen it before. Might give it a try some day. I'm enjoying Thief right now to be honest. So I'll surely enjoy the other Thief games or the Dark Mod.

new Doom and Wolfentein battling for the title of Generic Shooter King.

#42 Edited by SummerParadise (160 posts) -

Doom 3 is still best Doom game. Its horror game, lighting is very limited, so is ammo and monsters are strong.

Doom 1 and 2 are just bad. No horror, no lighting but also gameplay is Quake. In short:

Doom 1 and 2 = Quake(run and shoot)

Doom 3 = Doom game(horror game)

i dont know why ppls are complaining about new wolfenstien. Im very critical gamer. i am the one who is barely impress by modern games but new wolfenstein looks great. its bieng made by riddick developers. and has no regen health instead health bar and lean and peak

Doom 1 and 2 were great for the time but quickly looked aged when 3 showed up. 3 was what the series needed to progress. It is time to progress again but I hope to HELL they do it right.

compare to doom 3 they sure. doom 3 was graphics king when it was release. and still looks better than most console games.

doom 3 also did GAMEPLAY better. u can explore more, finding your ways, better setting, suspense, etc etc.
