Ships Ahoy - DOOM 3: BFG Edition

The Bethesda Blog announces today is the North American release day for the DOOM 3: BFG Edition, an enhanced edition of id Software's first-person shooter series. Here's the Launch Trailer, and here's word:

Relive your favorite moments of DOOM with the newly-released DOOM 3 BFG Edition — available now in North America and this Friday in Europe on Xbox 360, PC, and PlayStation 3!

BFG Edition includes the original versions DOOM and DOOM II, as well as re-mastered versions of DOOM 3 and its Resurrection of Evil add-on pack. And for the first time ever, play eight never-before-seen DOOM 3 levels in ‘The Lost Mission’.

Later today, PS3 players will be able to download the game directly on PSN. And if you already own DOOM 3 on Steam, between now and November 13th you can save $10 on your purchase.

The biggest thing I think was that it was pretty jarring for Doom fans that the series went from visceral run and gun to survival horror.
Doom 3's gameplay was a victim of the PC technology of the time. Recreating the Doom/Doom II experience with all of those enemies and items on the screen at once simply wasn't possible with the hardware available at the time of Doom 3's development since Carmack was pushing the game to have leading edge visuals. Sure, he could have made the game less demanding like Serious Sam and recreated the original experience, but that is not what he and id wanted. It also wouldn't have sold a lot of hardware upgrades like Doom 3 did which is what hardware vendors wanted.

However this is now 2012, and one big reason this re-release of the game is such a letdown is that Bethesda/id didn't use the opportunity to make the new "lost" missions in the game take advantage of the prevalent graphics hardware of the past eight years since Doom 3's release to recreate the original Doom gameplay experience in the Doom 3 engine.
