Hi there! Since this is a moviemaking site, I thought I'd post a topic about the game, DOOM 3.

Doom 3, the sequel to Doom 2, is the most aniticipated video game in the entire history of anticipated video games. It is also incredibly awesome...

What follows is my account of the first level of DOOM3, read in the persona of My Thoughts.

"I hope this is going to run. This computer might not be good enough. Oh.. I guess it's running pretty goo-- Holy God, that's cool. That model looks really realistic... Oh awesome.. I can talk to everyone? Awesome...Oh yes! The pistol. Just like in the original! YES! THAT IS SO COOL! Why do the bodies go away like that? Actually that's pretty awesome.... Just like the original! OH MY GOD THAT'S AMAZING!!

*drool, choke, die, post*

Let me put it simple for you... If you have the means, and the equipment to run it, you simply MUST play Doom3. The best graphics I've seen (FarCry was hard to beat, graphics wise.), awesome physics, really really cool sound... etc etc.

Great game, I give it two thumbs up. So far...

Now, to you people who are going to say "Great game? Quake 1 was a great game. You want story? Kings Quest one through four. You want action? Extreme Llama riding.", don't bash it til you've tried it, nawmean?

If I get hold of a demo, I'll definately play it. Allthough I doubt I'll buy the game, as I really really dislike having to shoot at Monsters and Zombies.

Yeah, I'll definitely check out a demo just to have a peek at the tech. But I can't see me buying it, because a) it looks far too unrelentlessly scary and b) I'm not too keen on shooting monsters and zombies myself.

Can't wait to see what other developers do with the engine, though.

We know you prefer shooting at Nuns and puppies, Puppy Death Match and Nun Hunter 4 should hit the shelves soon though....

The trailers for D3 looked really good, so I will prolly give it a whizz, as long as it doesn't suffer from the run, shoot, run, shoot setup of some previous games.

I have to admit by the time Rocket Nun Barrage came out the idea was getting a little tired. You were tempted by the rough wool special edition case made from a genuine Nuns Habit.....


Anywho, what kind of beast will this run on, I don't want to look at the published stats cos they are usually rubbish...

Monster and zombies like being shot, hence why they needlessly run at your BFG all the time.

I'm a big ID fan but I dont think ill be playing Doom3 any time soon. Firstly I dont think it'll be anymore than a pretty slideshow on my 1Ghz gf2 setup. But mainly there doesnt seem to be anything new in the gameplay that interests me. Its all the same weapons and map layouts. It looks like a rock solid game but basically its just a pretty version of Doom2. I think the mods that people make for this game will be where it really becomes interesting.

Yeah theres some real talent out there in modding world, so it will be interesting to see where it goes.

If Doom 3 manages to combine the techno and hellish aspect well and create a good atmosphere then the game should be good, I think FPS generally work better when the environment and setting is convincing.

I still enjoy Half Life because it really feels like you are exploring a place, each level flows well into the next, I hardly play Quake 2 anymore becasue you are just running from one random brown structure to the next.

I'm getting fed up with this, 'lets release it in the US a year before,' attitude. I think Far Cry was one of the only games to come out in both countries at the same time? *edited for content, Tarn*

It does look extremely promising. I only hope my PC can take full advantage of it.

Unfortunately Doom 3 doesn't appeal to me in the slightest.

Last year I managed to get hold of "that leaked e3 demo", which i duly installed, hoping to get wowed....

...instead my experience was pure terror, punctuated by the occasional pause in my death to go "oooh check that, the light swings and the shadows get cast different", followed rapidly by my death.

Nothing appeals to me less than gallons of concentrated terror, diluted with one or two teaspoons of fleeting fascination.

Of course this is exactly what D1 and D2 were all about - mindlessly repetitive violence, gore, terror and monsters - which was fine for 1993, as it was largely all that was possible at the time; but now its 2004 and your average gamer expects more variety.

Physics and dynamic lighting simply isn't variety - its just bells and whistles, so fails to disguise the fact that the monsters are always the same, the AI will be predictable, the levels are the samey and in one colour and the plot will be vapid enough to not get in the way of the mindless killing.

The sound is one area where D3 is meant to be excellent, it has to be said, so i might download a demo to sample it, but over all I like my games to be a whole body experience, not just a remake of a 90s classic.

D3 doesn't strike me as an "intelligent" game (rather telling that its going to be released on console, i might add), nor one with any longevity, i predict; and as such won't be on my wish list.

I'd concur with the modding posts tho...what people can do with the engine will be more interesting by far.

Quake sucks balls, on many levels.

Doom III however is prooving to be very cool indeed. So far they've spaced the encounters out just enough to remain cool or frightening. I'm gonna play some more and see how it goes. The action may get tiresome.

This is pure speculation. Neither Valve nor Vivendi have confirmed a date. This is born out by the fact that no two sites seem to have the *same* release date razz

graphics: very nice and probably even awesome with a $400 video card but it really doesn't matter since it's so dark. then again it wouldn't be very scary if it wasn't dark i guess.

audio: voice acting is very good. and for the most part the voices match the charaters. the atmospheric music and sounds do a great job of keeping you on the edge of your seat as well.

enemy AI: what enemy AI.

game play: will you be scared? yes you will. at least for the first few minutes after all hell breaks loose. after that you will still get a few jolts when monster sneak up behind you but for the most part you will be expecting the spawns before they even happen. if you play FPS then there is nothing new here.

concluding thoughts: this engine will probably power some pretty awesome games in the near future and doom 3 is a good way to showcase the engine. nothing new as far as gameplay for FPS, been there done that. hopefully the MOD community takes this thing and runs with it. i'm waiting for the co-op mod myself. if your a big Doom fan then it's worth getting. at least it will give you something to do until half-life 2 comes out. smile

I agree with the people waiting for HL2. You may recall in a previous thread I said I didn't think I'd like Doom3, so I was waiting for Half Life 2. Well, I was bored, and I was pleasantly surprised.

It's not as scary as your giant sig pic. But at part's it is still disturbing. I suspect you are barely past the zombies. Tell me you didnt feel uncomfy after you have passed through the spider caverns.

Yeah, I'm still in Alpha Labs Sector 1. I can only take it doses at a time. It's pretty rad.

I accidentally backtracked through the whole level, then when I figured it out and went back, the staircase was destroyed and I couldn't get back up. So I had to restart. Laaaame.

EDIT: Okay, since the majority of multiplayer servers really suck, we need an official FXHome one. Who's interested? If necessary, I can start a game and leave it going at all times. But we need at least three people to make it semi enjoyable, I think. Waser and I are in, who else?

Yowzers! Sometimes I'm like "this isn't really that scary anymore..." then 5 seconds later, I turn a corner and I jump because a monster pops out.

Victory is mine!

And, having completed the game, I can give my full opinion of it. I'll try not to spoil anything.

GRAPHICS: Pretty. Very Pretty. I don't think anything else needs to be said.

SOUND: Very nice, and very eerie at times. Makes the environment seem very alive and realistic.

GAMEPLAY: Run, shoot, get key, shoot, open door/lift, shoot, run, repeat. The first hour or so of the game is very, very awesome, and quite scary. After that, you've seen the majority of the monsters you'll be fighting, so there aren't really many surprises. I jumped a few times toward the middle, but after that, it got very repetitive, and the monsters were more of an annoyance than a challenge. I also thought the environment should be more interactive. Sometimes, things that should fall over, or fly across the room, or break when shot with a bullet... just sat there. For instance, locker doors. I came across an open locker door with nothing hindering it's movement, but it wouldn't budge when I shot it. But if you walk into a barrel, it falls over and rolls. Oh well.

OVERALL: Doom3 won't change the face of computer games, but it is a very solid action shooter. The repetition really hurt it in my opinion, but it's definitely worth playing, as it has some of the best graphics and audio I've ever seen/heard in a game.

I give it 4/5

Also, I stick by the thought that Half Life 2 will be better. But yes, play it if you can/want, because it's worth it. It's quite fun.

I think they did a great job with DOOM 3. I have been playing it for 2 days now, for a total of about 1hr and a half. I get too scared to play it at night alone o_O. But I feel they did an awesome job with this game, it really is just like the original Doom, but with everything stepped up 900 notches. It really got me going just as the originals, they did an overall amazing job with this game, no complaints.

Go buy it!

Well I am still waiting to get it but from what I have seen so far I agree with whats been said previously in this thread. Its a bit pretty and scary but at the end of the day the gameplay is the same old doom/quake which people have moved on from.

Even with UT which is a similar game they have realised they need to add more with the whole multiplayer node things and assaults and basketball. The graphics are the first of the next generation, beating hl2 which they promised ages ago but had no chance of coming out back then. I wouldn't really compare it to farcry (of course doom looks better) because farcry cheated on the graphics a lot and their engine only looks good with the bright paradise island setting and wouldn't work with regular levels. On the other hand doom is a little drab. Not only does it have quakes 65 bjillion shades of brown it has shades of red as well. razz

At the end of the day, I'll try it out but I prefer sneaky snipe em ups like rogue spear/ghost recon or things with a good story and puzzles like half life, hl2, kingpin, star trek elite force and so on.

It's amazing that so many people have already made mods... I'm definitely going to have to grab some of those. I didn't like the bodies going away like that.

Yes. FXHome server. I'll get on that.

Alright! FXhome server active.

For some reason, the deathmatch will only allow 4 players at a time. Kinda lame. I can change it around if anyone wants to play something other than standard DM.

I finished the game a few days back, Really satisfied with everything except the bosses which look awesome but are PAINFULLY easy to kill. unsure

Yeah, you aren't directly forced to face the cyberdemon which is a big shame, you just run in circles wiping out enemies before they can fire anything off at you and then launch off the soulcube every now and then. sad

Anyone else find the id block and click on it? Last level, last room before the final boss cut scene, in the area to the left. Crouch and click the block and it will open a secret room. In the room you will find a PDA with a bunch of thank you emails from the id team.

How did the game look on all your computers and what kind of hard ware were you running?
