Single Status Update
Well I wanted to start a new thread and I just had to do it, I need to release a bit of steam. First off I'm a ravid Doom fan, proudly playing since the summer of '95, so I do love the series, but this game well...Doom 3 needs a serious ass-kicking, if it wasn't a Doom game and wasn't made by ID, this game wouldn't be as popular...
...I thought this game (Doom 3) was really good, in fact I thought it was the best FPS game ever (except there were some serious faults which I'll tackle later on in the post)...but I thought this game rocked until I got to the Hell Level. WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT? Hearing swanns voice or whoever he was saying out loud throughout the hell levels saying "your soul will be mine muahahahah" and "destroy him", that was so lame. I shrugged this off though and kept on playing. I saw the Hell Knight with Tatoo's on it and thought it was pretty cool and I was getting really into the game but then those stupid cherubs turned up, those cherubs should've been deleted from the game (same with trites). They both serve no purpose in Doom 3 other than to annoy the crap out of you, I mean the only demon that should do that is the lost souls, lol. Anyway, after getting extremely pissed of I broke my resistance and began to cheat with god mode (I'm really against cheating, but desperate times call for desperate measures). After slaying every god damn fucking cherub on the level I began to play seriously again....Then I saw the guardian, what the gay is that? It reminded me of somesort of gameboy/nintendo boss, I mean punching the ground and rockets go out in a 360 circle? WHAT A JOKE, I was laughing so hard. Plus it's invincible? Give me a good old oldschool BFG fight with a Cyberdemon/SMM anyday over this bullshit. Then I saw the talking soulcube that was just the lamest piece of crap I have ever seen in ANY FPS game ...whispering weapon, saying "save usssss...". GAY. By this point I was on holding my sides from bursting cause I was laughing so godamn hard. Please tell me this game gets better because I've honestly given up. I couldn't care less anymore. I've stopped playing. Hurry up and bring on the Doom 3: Hell On Earth mod (it is being made ;) )!
It's not all negative though, during the recycling plant when you first meet the mancubus was great. It actually felt like you were playing a doom game! Shooting rockets at him and seeing his ragdoll death was absoulutley teriffic. I had the same feeling when vs the Revenant, they left him alone and only gave him minor upgrades but it was so true to the original game it was really good. The environments were very detailed and pretty cool, but for about the first hour, after that you do honestly get sick of corridors and imps jumping out of closets at you (how many imps are there anyway??? Where are the pinkys, cacodemons? Bring them on I'm sick of imps already! I thought the flashlight and the PDA's were cool and the best thing this game has going for it is the atmosphere, it's really disturbing and reminded me of the Aliens' movies.
Back to the negative points, another thing that sucked hard about this game was that the screwed the Archville up, he used to be cool now he's plain annoying every time you see him he spawns about a thousand bloody imps. AS IF I NEED TO FIGHT MORE IMPS! I'VE ONLY ALREADY SLAYED ABOUT 54.3 MILLION OF THEM!!!
Everyone also raves about the shadows in this game but there is one huge fault. NO SHADOW IN THE WORLD CASTS A 100% BLACK SHADOW!!! I mean couldn't they just change the density to say 70% or 85%!!! When I first played this game right at the beginning the spaceship casts a shadow onto the walkway and I was like...fuck! Where's the goddamn walkway gone? It's pitch-bloody-black, even with the gamma up to 100!
Also hitting a dead zombie with a torch makes them dissolve into a skeleton which then dissolves too? Don't tell me this is a "CPU saving tactic" cause that's bullshit. Soldier Of Fortune 2 had the best effect ever, but doom's system was sooo lame if you ask me...
Just to finish off they should've put more enemies in (not variety, that's fine I mean MORE enemies in!) and weakened them up a bit. The first two dooms was all about fraggin demons and that was fun. I see all of you saying, "but this game was meant to be scary, that's why there's not as many demons"...well the scaryness factor wears of within the first half a bloody hour of the game!
The tank boss, I can't remember his name because he is so gay, WTF??? As someone here said in this very forum in the most
perfect way possible, "ID spilt some Quake in my Doom". Enough said.
Invincible Cyberdemon? Fags...what where they thinking? No megaspeheres, soulspeheres, spectres, those invisible sphere thingies...and plus they gayed up the berserker, floating helmet with red crap flying around it! QUAKE *COUGH* QUAKE!
After trying to ignore all these negative aspects of the game and pretending that the game is aweomse I've come to the conclusion that this game is pretty lame and mediocre at best. That soulgay thing just killed it. Thanks for reading and please give me a good reason to continue playing...because it's not looking good.
Edit: I've got a lot more to bitch about but I've got better things to do!
