Is this a BAD port?
I own the originals and have loved them for a long time but I am kind of set on getting BFG now, as the originals are kind of hard to take care of on new hardware.

Few questions:

-Are controls good or bad?
(I owned the 360 version at one point but the aiming was terrible, is it the same here?)

-Does it ask me to press Controller buttons?
(Such as, press Y (or something) to bring out your Flashlight!)
(Yes I did see the STTP3 thing, but i'm asking about the rest of the game)

TL;DR is it one of those blatant console ports like Dark Souls, or is it good but still littered with a bit of console features?

Controls are pretty basic for a shooter. It does at times, but not really frequently.

Is it like the original's controls?

Numbers to change weapons, q for the soul thing, r for reload, space is jump, shift hold is run, f for timed flash light...E I think opens stuff....tab is the pda...mouse is aim and shoot...wasd is how ya move back, forward, and strife.

Pretty much like l4d.

Oi thanks.

What about aiming, is it clunky, or is it good?

More of a full on free aim vs an auto. Not clunky unless you have a very very low end gpu[uses rage's engine and old 3's engine in one hybrid engine] or a really bad mouse.

controls are very similar, you shouldnt find yourself confused at all ;)
MrMuffinz May 15 @ 6:16pm 
Nah, I meant, do they feel unnatural?

My peeve with the 360 one was the fact horizontal aiming blew really bad.

dude this isnt a console, the controls are pretty sharp as long as you got a good keyboard and mouse
MrMuffinz May 15 @ 6:44pm 
I was just asking if the mouse control was good, sheesh.

I'm not even a console gamer, I just found it at Gamestop back when it released and was like "oh well".

I'm sure I know what ya mean by clunky...like you go to aim, and it just randomly stops. Ya, no it doesn't do that.

I've been playing for a few hours now. The controls are pretty good, as long as you use a mouse (I don't know about a controller, I tend not to use them for anything besides 3rd person games). I've been having an issue with random crashing though, but I haven't seen anyone posting about crashes, so it might just be my computer. It tends not to handle older games all that well.

Other than that, it's been great fun so far, and the controls work well. Graphics are a little dated, but you don't play DooM for graphics, you play it because it's DooM.

Yeah I did wind up buying it like 2 hours ago.

Actually liked it a bit more, pray for the fact there's problems with Vsync that causes blur.

Got to like level 7 in Doom 2 aswell.

a big minus is that there is no coop modus, and actually no way to use the mods from the orginal. like open coop and similar. why they do that?!
+i like the xbox controller support. its nice to feel the vibrations of cannonfire in the controller.
+for the lost mission. is cute but for the original doom3 there are much more levelbuildings from the community.
+ for the steam archivements.
the biggest + what i see is the mod ond oculusrift devsite what supports okulusrift for bfg.

Overall i think its not a bad port but the original with mods is better , so i have to reinstall my old d3 version with wulfentexture and sikkmod next time. Unfavorable that i have no old resurection of evil and can´t buy it in german :´(
