What do you think about Doom 3?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Although I don't like Doom 3 much, It's combat mechanics are still miles better than System Shock 2. Bioshock games definitely improved on this aspect.

It's a fuckin shit game not only is it's weapon roster horribly weak, the sound design is terrible the pistol and chaingun/plasma gun are the worst offenders to me.

Overly dark areas to make it DaRk AnD SpOoKy even though the idea of being a lone survivor of a hell invasion is creepy enough, the theme is generic and un-remarkable it's already enough that the game has no actual soundtrack and just has "scary ambience" when in reality the ambient tracks suck.

 

The "bosses" are basically the spider mastermind but with "some challenge added" and by that i mean extremely shitty lighting mixed with rather weak "arenas", the "plot" is nearly nonexistent throughout the game until the end but by then you don't give a shit anymore.

 

It's slow,linear,tedious&draining why id thought this game would be liked by anyone with a single set of braincells but considering that games like cod still get played even till this day i'm not surprised.

 

TL;DR Doom 3 sucks or atleast that's my OPINION and you shouldn't feel bad for liking doom 3 nor should you parrot what i say to other doom fans especially newer ones.

 

Why do you feel the need to unnecessarily and harshly bash a game when you never gave it a chance in the first place? No-one I've ever heard about Doom 3 has been this harsh about it. You must've been very disappointed. What were you expecting?

 

Sound design is OK to me, but then Trent Reznor left, I think, because he couldn't handle the heat of development so he stayed out of the kitchen. The weapon roster is Doom, what are you expecting? The soundtrack is perfectly fine and atmospheric, it's like Quake, it's not meant to be musical.

 

The plot is strong with Doom 3.

 

Slow, linear, tedious and draining??? But IT'S BY ID THEMSELVES, so you better have more respect for them.

 

Opinion? Your opinion? Then it needs adjustment.

I have played doom 3 back when came out and currently for lulz but i guess you didn't read that line in my "review". also i shouldn't mindlessly worship whatever id puts out, doom (2016) and eternal are amazing do i "harshly bash them" no because they're great games and my opinion needs "adjusting" sounds like you want me to change it rather then actually have one, like a sheep have the same one as everyone else.

 

Either you have some strong ass nostalgia glasses or you just briefly scanned over my post and just typed whatever was on your mind because you really like the game, opinions are subjective you have your's and i have mine i won't try to force mine's on you.

 

Also have you read the rest of the tl;dr part or just the beginning and stopped there?.

You didn't like any of it, and that made me angry. Maybe that's why I may have skipped some of your stuff.

 

I was still praising id Tech 4 (still do, in fact) some ten YEARS after it came out, it was so great.

Pretty thin skinned, listen i may have ticked you off but at the end of the day it's just a opinion: it doesn't matter who's wrong or right.

Personally i think everything in doom 3 looks like its either wrapped in transparent wrap or made of plastic/clay, it's not id tech 4's fault just id's i guess.

I hated the cyberdemon boss fight. He was too underpowered as a boss. Using soul cube-only on him was a bad idea. Maybe make him very strong and he does take considerable damage from shots but Soul Cube kills him faster.

 

Shotgun was terrible. A nightmare (pun intended)

I wasn't a fan of reloading, especially those long shotgun reloads.

 

It still cannot beat any of the Doom games (except TNT) and the lack of proper secret placement (lockers with codes that give you ammo/health/armor) was really a turn off since you had to listen to audios to find the codes or google them.

 

But other than that, I liked it as a horror game.

 

I think though that Doom was never that much about horror and Doom 3 felt out of place for a Doom game, but that's my opinion.

Maybe because you used some crappy "Next Gen Better Shaders" mod? Because normally in Doom 3 only shiny metal surfaces look shiny.

Nope, just the trent reznor sound pack.

I personally love it. I never had any nostalgic ties to the DOOM series. I'm only 23 but I still love these games,even if I never grew up with them. DOOM 3 is no exception. It DOES have problems, though.

But I liked what DOOM 3 was going for. Sure, it's the black sheep of the series now after DOOM(2016) and DOOM Eternal, but I thought DOOM 3 was a whale of a time.

 

I like it when games try to do something a tad different with the formula while still maintaining what made the series so good. It's tricky to pull off, but I think DOOM 3 pulled it off alright. It's a great game, just not a great DOOM game if that makes sense. I liked it for what it was trying to do and I understand if some DOOM fans didn't like it all that much and/or deride the game for reasons.

I thoroughly enjoy Doom 3. The atmosphere, the level design, the campy story and characters. I don't play it all the time but when I'm in the mood I'll play through the whole thing vanilla, then go back and put in the alpha shotgun and a few other meshes and textures, tweak the movement, animations, add in sound effects from the Killing Floor sdk, and play through the whole thing again while slowly tweaking things here and there just for fun.

 

I was a senior in high school a year before it came out, and I remember being really excited with the screenshots and concept art. I wouldn't actually play it until a year or so after it came out because I didn't have a computer or an xbox and was always busy with college, my local music scene and working and all. But for whatever reasons it exceeded all my expectations when I finally played it and I didn't even consider comparing it with the first two games. I didn't learn about any of the controversy until I came here, and while I see most of the criticism as valid, it was a new Doom game, and I was too busy taking in the experience to be critical.

 

Those who argue that it's not Doom are right, because it's not Doom, it's Doom 3. Had I never played the Silent Hill games, maybe I would have a different take on the whole vibe of the game, but either way I always enjoy going back to it. But nothing is for everyone and I completely understand why some don't enjoy it or are disappointed. There are a great many popular games that I don't enjoy as well.
