DOOM 3 Gives It, and I just keep taking it...
Wow, what a game. I'm amazed. The detail is astounding, the intensity and terrifying moments are awesome, and the story is compelling. I won't comment on plot elements or anything, but the whole story background blends very well with the action. I haven't had this much fun since playing System Shock way back in about 1994.

The previous installments of Doom weren't really all that scary to me. With really only Alone In The Dark actually being scary. And although the Thief games had some intense, "scary" moments, DOOM 3 takes 'scary' to a whole new level. This game is definitely not for kids because of the extreme violence and gore, and the visuals and sounds are unnerving to say the least. But it's fun for us die-hard violent type gamers.

It does run a little slow and "chunky" in some places on my system though, even with ALL the graphics settings turned all the way down: P4 1.5GHz, 256Mb Ram, ATI Radeon 9700 Pro 128Mb. Especially when a dozen enemies jump me at once and I'm flailing away with the machine gun, but at least the game is still playable and gorgeous.

Just a note on the details in this game: everything looks fantastic. Railings, piping, jagged pieces of metal flooring, everything looks so realistic. Even the flashlight effect is creepy as hell as you make your way through a dark room or passageway and something jumps out at you. The light casts extremely realistic shadows as it passes over objects like railings and terrain, and I keep jumping at shadows constantly. DOOM 3 reminds me of Half-Life, only a lot more detailed and 10 times more frightening. I have to take a break occasionally after particularly intense moments in the game just to get settled in again. The sounds and the intense combat in this game give me the shivers.

I don't consider myself a very good FPS player, but it's playable even for me on the easiest (Recruit) setting and it didn't take long for me to get the hang of the weapons system and combat. Finally, a FPS I can play right out of the box!

What fun!!
