All I can say is, I hope I am pleasantly surprised by DOOM 3. Judging (for myself) based on the media we have seen of both games, DOOM 3 just doesn't look as "alive" as HL2. Some people won't care about that. I do. I've been looking for a game that brings the world more to life instead of just making it look prettier.
RagDoll physics may seem like a big deal to some, but I never even really noticed them in the few games it's in today. I cracked up laughing the other day when I watched that ragdoll movie of Tribes Vengence. After about 2 deaths I was like, big deal. I never paid any attention to ragdoll in the unreal games. It's just not that noticeable in a game that moves so fast.
Rag Doll, flying boxes and barrels, bodies that move when you shoot them (rag doll)...... not enough.
I'm sure Carmack and the gang have a few tricks up their sleaves. They always do. It's a good thing though the two games aren't competing this xmas, cause if I only had money on one of them, I would spend it on HL2.This comment was edited on Aug 14, 16:48.
He cut the possum's face off then cut around the eye socket. In the center of the belt buckle, where the possum's eye would be, he has placed a small piece of wood from his old '52 Ford's home made railroad tie bumper. Damn, he misses that truck.
