Has anybody read the "The making of Doom 3" book?

I just ordered a copy of amazon but it will be weeks until it gets to me. Has anybody else read this thing? And if so what did you think of it?

I've never read any of the DOOM books. It definitely wouldn't be the DOOM 3 one if I ever get around to reading one. Boring game = boring book. I do own a copy of the Knee-Deep in the Dead book which was a pretty good read. The DOOM 3 novels aren't very popular. You'll probably get more feedback on a Barnes & Noble forum.

Boring? Well your free to believe what you will.. I would however give d3 more respect than that.. From a graphical and atmospheric standpoint it is great. Gameplay could have been polished, yes.. However there were many key design elements directly placed into Doom2016 because of Doom 3's amazing tech design. A perfect Doom 3 would have been one with trent reznors sound, no disappearing bodies, and just overall way more demons -

This isn't a novel, it's a book about the making of the game. You don't even have to actually like Doom 3 for it to be an interesting book.

I did. Although I don't possess physical copy, but have found colored scans on my old hdd.

I bought it years ago. Pretty damned interesting read and plenty of nice high quality images of the various models, concept sketches and stuff.

My one major gripe with it is that the physical quality of the book is rather crappy. After a few years, the pages will start falling out.

 

Other than that, lots of nice info in it.

I also bought a physical copy years ago. The many spectacular full color images are indeed a big plus. Text wise you shouldn't expect something on the level of "Masters of Doom", but it is still interesting to read.
