Even better than Doom 1 and Doom 2.

Yeah, I said it.

The gameplay is perfect, the environments are perfect (steel corridors create a sense of desperation and loneliness) and I love the flashlight mechanic (duct tape is for wussies). There is so much detail and I love the pacing. And it's long too!

I just finished this game for the Nth time. I have a copy for PC, one for the original Xbox and I'll buy the BFG edition for the Xbox 360.

This is my favorite game engine too! Yeah, there are better engines in the technical sector, but I love the look! No bloom, or blurriness, or nothing!

There are awesome mods, too!

And so much more!

I thought it sucked. The metal corridors were boring as ****, the flashlight mechanic was a stupid idea too. Thank god for Duct Tape Mod. I wouldn't have even touched this turd without that mod. The whole game is just slow and tedious and beyond repetitive.

I like the horror atmosphere and constant shooting action. The level design stays consistent and without boring vehicle segments like in HL2. The designer however are such cheap bastards for spawning monsters behind your back everytime you pick up a medkit and letting you fight in pitch black lol. I actually like the flash light mechanic it ads a little more tension to the game. Definatly one of my favorite singleplayer shooters.

Don't blame the game, it seems you just like fast paced shooters. This is another kind.

The game has many flaws. However, I admit I come back to it all the time. Maybe not as frequently as the originals, but this game has some things about it.

This game isn't that great, but to compare it to that turd Diablo 3 isn't right.

Doom 3 was a real disappointment for me. Not a bad game but just had higher expectations

The Duct Tape mod, is there an in-game toggle to turn the light on or off? This would be the only reason for me to get this.
