Intro & Gameplay:
Doom 3 BFG is a great and unsettling shooter with fantastic gunplay and graphics that hold up well. Although for a remaster the graphical changes are very minor making this feel much more like a cash grab than a well thought remaster of a brilliant game. Doom 3 BFG also brings a simple, well done new interface and includes the original classics, Doom and Doom II.
Doom 3 is a game I only found late last year so I won't be reviewing with rose tinted glasses. I always heard mixed opinions about the game. Some were saying it was atrocious and should have been aborted, some saying it was a great comeback for the series. Doom 3 BFG has you set on Mars playing the infamous 'Doom guy', on his first day (I assume Doom and Doom II are noncannon in this game) of the job as a guard, a hellish force takes over the place turning everyone into mutants and zombie-esque creatures. You being the badass you are, are forced to kill every son of a ♥♥♥♥♥ you find. The story isn't really much, but I don't care much for story in games like these, that's why there's no alone rating for it.
The gun mechanics are incredible in Doom 3, every weapon sways around realistically and fires beautifully making a great suitable sound that goes along. It really is some heavy stuff and it's brilliant. Unfortuantely the game gets stale quick. There's really not a lot breaking the straight forward shooting up other than the PDA which most will probably not even use. Play in short breaks, 15 or so minute sessions or you'll get bored fast. There's a wide range of monsters and weapons including fan favourite weapons such as the BFG and minigun. Monsters like the Former Humans and Imps come back to thrash you with their meaniness and they looks great, well, sort of, they're hard to see after they're dead since they desintegrate but when putting bullets in their face they look good and highly detailed. Doom 3 isn't horror per-say but more unsettling is how I like to describe it. There's blood everywhere and screaming and the occasional, very occasional jumpscare.
Doom 3 is a great singleplayer game but unfortunately without bots and players the multiplayer may as well be pointless. No one plays, and ID decided to be lazy and not add bots in Quake 4 and Doom 3, something which the games, especially Quake 4, could really benefit from but that's a story for another time.
As you may be aware, Doom 3 BFG also includes the original Doom and the sequal, Doom II. These games feature controller support but don't feature any other benefits other than a small amount of achievements if that's your thing. The games are locked at 35FPS and they suffer from 4:3 letterboxing. The Steam versions of Doom and II are definitely better but if you get this then there's no purpose in getting the Steam versions since they work just fine and for old Build engine games, there's really no shame in 35FPS and ugly letterboxing. They are a very nice extra and I do play them a lot but they could have been better.
Since they're apart of the package we may as well talk about them. Doom and its sequal are identicle other than the fact that Doom II has more guns and a broader range of enemies. There's practically barely any difference but that's no problem as they're brilliant games that have you going around complex and very well thought out maps scavanging for health and the frustrating keycards. They're not creepy like Doom 3 and the fact that people hate Doom 3 so much is probably because it's nothing like these 2 goldies which is definitely understandable, but I think you have to put the slow movement and overall different gameplay and atmosphere of away and just take it for what it is if you're really dissapointed. Doom and Doom II are a nice bonus touch.
