Well lots have had a chance to play it now what do you think
IMO 9.5
So far only half way thru but its very exciting the game really takes hold of you (more if your using 5.1 speakers and sound) and the graphics are great, even thought I have it on a lower setting due to my system
Sound is out of the world
Dislike the darkness and not able to use flashlight with weapon, and the multiplayer is limited
But all in all well worth the wait
:lol:
:evil:
ps dont play if you have a weak heart
:twisted:

Looks pretty, runs well, but the marines standing, ducking and shooting in the same spot.

Doom 3 - 7 / 10
(9 / 10 MaxPC scale... yeah I'm tough on games, SWG - 4/10 and I played for 4 months, CoH - 5/10 just enough to keep me occupied, Puzzle Pirates - 2/10)

Good:
* almost everything
* fun
* sets the bar for new graphics
* reasonably good interactivity

Bad:
* Incorrect savegame placement (they should go somewhere in %USERHOME%)
* Good skeletal movement, but no skeletal damage (same ol' "shoot head whole body explodes")
* Limited character movement breaks the illusion. (no grabing ledges etc)
* Can I have an offhand kick/punch/rifle but? I am a marine (right? this also breaks the illusion)
* Could use a 'look up' mouse offset or 3rd person for some of the puzzles (look up at the area while you press buttons)

Nittpicks:
* Duct Tape
* Mirror image out-of-synch
* From what I hear, sucky DM maps. Some good remakes would be nice!
* I want the sdk... NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE!!!!

I'd say with a few tweaks this game and its mods will completely kill HALO 2.

7.0, Monsters,just don't get it for me anymore.It's an overworked theme,I'm really not impressed with this game at all.I think the graphics in Far Cry are supperior to the grahics in doom3, and the game requires an awful lot of power if you want to run it with all the eye candy turned on. The game does have a very user friendly interface, beyond that however all I can say is yawn.

8/10- Like I said, gfx would be more impressive about a year ago, and thats where most of the hype was, in the gfx.

The game does in fact look great but there are a few problems I have with it. 1) The surround sound problem with the Audigy a lot of people have, yet there seems to be no problems with the Audigy 2...Makes ya wonder!! 2) The insane amount of monsters that come from behind to pin you in somewhere and can attack way quicker than you can. 3) Good Hell the NEVERENDING RELOADS!!!!

All in all the game plays great I'm actually able to play with High Quality settings 4x antialiasing and 8x anistropic filtering. From what I've read it shouldn't be playable at those settings on my system. Though it will get kinda choppy now and then. And of course if yer wonderin!

Asus P4C800 Deluxe
P4 2.6 400mhz o/c to 3.07
1gb Geil Ultra Platinum DDR PC3200
ATI Radeon 9600XT 128mb

Appears like some have a problem with the original audigy and some don't. I've been around to other forums and keep reading the same kind of thing. Though i don't think it matters for me too much since I have my Audigy hooked up to a Kenwood reciever in 6 channel. Either way i get surround sound. I'm just bummed i cant get SURROUND SOUND! hehehehe

I would give the graphics a 9 and the game itslef around a 6. It is too old school. Nothing has really changed much for them in the last 5 years or so in the gameplay depth. Maybe Farcry ruined it for me.

Now that I have gotten to play the game and finish it I would give it a 9.5 out of 10 also. I do agree it was repetitive and I thought anyways, that I was never going to get to the end of the game. I really enjoyed the game though. The little added features looking into the mirror and stuff that happened was a nice touch.

My wife is playing it now and I would give it an 15 out of 10 for how much it scares my wife playing this game. Soooo funny. :lol: Things jumping out after her and my wife jumps outta her chair and freaks. Watching my wife play is a lot more fun than playing the game for me now.

IMHO between the Doom 3 and Half-Life 2 showdown that will happen when HL2 is released. Half-Life 2 has Doom 3 beat hands down. This is based on me reading tons of information on Half-Life 2 (and Doom 3, plus playing Doom 3) and seeing all the videos and such. I think HL2 is going to be much better than D3 ever was. Both games are top notch in my book though. HL2 is going to win the "Game of the Year"! :)

Yes, it will be no contest with HL2. Like I say, Far Cry is probably my favorite right now. And I think it's because of being outside, but I like the graphics in Far Cry as much or more than D3.
