Out of the Blue

I got it.. you got it? It runs better on my system than I ever would have expected (woot!)...

Impressions? Dark, immersive, scary, and fun! I also think you are exposed to more "story" in the first level of DOOM 3 than in all of id's previous games combined.

I just never would have imagined that in the future when interplanetary travel is common, we will have reverted to flashlights and pistols that each require both hands for proper operation. Go fig!

178. Doom 3 Aug 7, 2004, 11:43 Celestial Toad
 
I finally got my Doom3 by UPS last night.

I really like the interface. And the heavy metal track that plays is not bad. I am in the "Enpro" section or whatever.

I think the game rocks so far, but I wish it wasn't quite so DARK. Jesus. It actually is scary, I have jumped back in my seat several times.

I thought the "Super Turbo Turkey Puncher" machine was hilarious! Did anyone see that? If you go in there before the first mission you can play it.

I have passed like 5 lockers without finding the damned security codes, which is irritating, but it just means I'll have to start over and look around better. The detail on everything is just amazing. And I like how you can use the computers "in engine" without jumping to another screen.

And I keep getting plasma cells everywhere, but I didn't see the plasma gun. Where was it? Overall I think it rocks.
