Doom 3 = Daikatana I hope not!

Recommended Posts

Daikatana was so hotly ancipated and while it is a good game it is not what people expected it to be!
I just hope Doom 3 won't turn out to be another Daikatana!
With John Carmack controlling it it is highly unlikely!

I wasn't anticipating Daikatana. I did the same trick I did with Half-Life. I read about Half-Life while it was still under development, so I refused to read anything on it until I bought it and played through it. EVERYTHING was a great surprise, right up to the final duel in Xen.

So I played Daikatana with an unbaised slate.

I can firmly state that the game sucks, I hate it, and that Romero should be duct taped to the floor in a daycare center.

The levels aren't as good as HL, scratch that, the levels are designed like they're for Doom 2.

The enemies have poor ai.

The graphics were a small disappointment. They just didn't look right on a Voodoo 3, I'll bet the game looks a lot better running through a GeForce. The hand-drawn art that was on the menu screens was great, though, I must admit.

The thing that set my hate for the game in stone was your 'partner' ai. They were just so stupid they either suicided into a dangerous area or ran in front of you while you were shooting.

Four years and that's the best they could do?

It's sad.

4 years with 3 lame teams. Who could work under those conditions? Daikatana was supposed to be released in 8 months. But they waited a little more to use Q2 engine. Then things get rough for Romero. There´s an article on Gamespot about ION biography buried somewhere. I don´t know if it survived the 2 upgrades of the site.

About D3. The only good way to escape from the hype-effect is making a press blackout (but then we will suffer). The game´s never going to be technollogicaly and artisticly old, neither the AI. The content and gameplay itself are the main problems for iD. Let´s hope things go right from the beggining.

I doubt Carmack will let Doom 3 become a bad game, and I never had any interest in Daikatana anyway, I was looking more forward to Unreal Tournament and Quake 3 when I first heard of it, and also Duke Forever which still isnt out. Face it, even if its a poor game with not so good graphics (highly unlikely) you'll all still buy it :)

No way! I'm going to be highly critical of it. If it isn't up to my standard in gameplay, judging by reviews, then no way! If there's too much super-realistic violence, I won't buy it! Don't think for a second I'm being sarcastic!
