Doom 3 id Software / Activision 2004

This is the eagerly anticipated game from id Software, the makers of the all-time classics Doom and Quake. The glimpses fans saw of it beforehand showed it to be using cutting-edge graphics and an alpha was leaked on the net beforehand. Doom 3 is essentially a remake of the original Doom so rather than an immersive gameplay experience it still retains a simplistic shoot enemies as they pop out at you pattern. There are reimagined versions of almost every monster from both Doom and Doom II. You play a 22nd-century space marine called by the Union Aerospace Corporation to its Mars research facility that is having mysterious problems. You'll end up single-handedly fighting back legions of hellspawn using weapons like shotguns, machine guns, and rocket launchers. Most levels though are linear and there's not a really exciting or new storyline to amaze you other than the nice atmosphere and super graphics. You'll frequently find voice recordings and e-mail from various characters in order to get passcodes for locked doors and storage chests. Some things are annoying like you can't carry a flashlight and gun at the same time and due to the highly detailed graphics you'll rarely face more than a few foes at a time, and as you kill them their bodies instantly disintegrate into ash. Already users are making mods to alter these gameplay aspects. However, what is great about the game is unrelenting darkness and the disturbing and nicely animated monsters. The physics and graphics engine is very well done. As for multiplayer, the game supports only up to four players on a handful of maps and in a small number of different deathmatch-style modes.
