Well, i've been playing doom3 a few hours now, what can i say? This is 100% the most scarey experiance i have EVER had in a computer game.
I understand what people are complaining about, there is NOTHING that is inovative in this game, gameplay wise.. nothing at all, but on a personal level i did not want there to be. I didn't like alot of the "inovative" games, i dont like games with 2 much choice, or more to the point, i dont like shooters that are 2 complicated. i like them to be simple run and gun affairs. One reason i loved serious sam...
the best thing so far about doom3 for me is the atmosphere, ive screamed so many times, ive jumped so many times. ive held my breath, at a door, took a deep gulp of air and dissapeared in to a room, fearing what i will find there.
I really do feel a bit like leutenant hicks in aliens, i am scared, i dont like this, but i am gonna have to get through it. the games like a drug, it keeps calling me back.
But i do understand the people that want more than run and gun, and why they are dissapointed, its nothing new, but in terms of what id set out to do, i think it does it really well.
thanks to id, i am really enjoying it, whenever i am bored and i dont know what to do, and just want to kill time, i usually fire up quake1, i like the fact its simple, and that i can just run and gun... i think i might finally shelf my copy of quake1, for me, doom3 is the new quake1.
PS: outdoor areas, there are not a lot of these, but the ones that are thre are awsome, i am looking forward to see what other teams do with the engine as well.
