Bad horror elements, decent shooter, good voice acting, censored classic games, Final DOOM not included, added Steam achievements (even for DOOM I/II). Optimized for widescreen, 3D, Oculus Rift and high framerates. Multiplayer is dead. The BFG Edition-exclusive DOOM 3 "The Lost Mission" and DOOM II "No Rest for the Living" expansions are great, so it's still worth getting even if you own the original games, although you should probably wait for a sale in that case.
Despite its horror elements being utter crap, DOOM 3 is a decent shooter game. The graphics are good, except for human character models (which are ugly and repetitive - prepare for attack of the clones!), the weapons are diverse and well-balanced - pretty much all of them are useful throughout the whole game, and the voice acting is good. The game gets more fun towards the end, so even if it gets a bit monotonous in the middle of campaign, it is worth enduring so you'd get to play its best part.
In BFG Edition flashlight is no longer a separate weapon, it appears to be shoulder-mounted and can be used at any time with any weapon equipped. Along with more ammo found in the levels, this makes the game somewhat easier and less tense that original DOOM 3. Zoom is no longer available, but I didn't miss it at all.
The game now has out-of-the-box support for widescreen resolutions, 3D and head mounted displays (such as Oculus Rift), and runs steadily at 120 fps 1920x1080 on my system, all maxed out.
Also, the controls are customizable (seeing all the negative comments about unchangeable controls, I must assume this has only been patched recently), and you CAN bind CTRL to crouch and even rebind weapon selection buttons as you please (which you should as they go all the way from 1 to 9 and it is hard to switch to the most powerful weapons in a middle of a fight with default bindings).
DOOM 3: Resurrection of Evil
The new grabber is fun to use and comes in handy quite often - it can actually be used to defeat some of the thoughest monsters and save you tons of ammo -, the double-barreled shotgun is as good as it was in DOOM II (which, in case you haven't played, is VERY good), and the new artifact brings some variety to gameplay.
Unlike DOOM 3, where PDAs played major part in delivering the plot, in RoE audio logs on PDAs are almost non-existent, and those that are there are written poorly, as well as all the emails. It also has what seems to be the worst ending in entire history of video game, and the protagonist is as dumb as a bag of hammers - just play and you'll see why.
All the changes in BFG Edition that apply to DOOM 3 also apply to RoE, so you can't zoom anymore but are able to use flashlight with any weapon.
All and all, despite its flaws, DOOM 3: Resurrection of Evil is fun to play, especially if you liked DOOM 3.
DOOM 3: The Lost Mission
Adds no new enemies or weapons, but has almost everything from both DOOM 3 and RoE, along with high quality PDA entries that are quite enjoyable to read/listen to. I also enjoyed the level design, especially in the Hell levels, which look very different from those found in original DOOM 3 and RoE.
A solid addition to the game, and, along with No Rest for the Living, is a reason enough to get the BFG Edition even if you already own the base game and RoE outside BFG Edition.
I totally hate it that they censored the games - medkits look stupid with that pill symbol instead of red cross, and they pretty much ruined the secret levels in DOOM II, which are now barren and have all references to Wolfenstein 3D removed but not replaced with anything else. The only good changes are added achievements and "No Rest for The Living" episode for DOOM II. Also, Final DOOM is not a part of BFG Edition so you'll have to buy it separately if you want it.
In every other aspect it's the same old DOOM we all love.
No Rest for the Living
I was sceptical about it at first, but it turned out to be a good expansion pack that has the spirit of original DOOM games and is a lot of fun to play. The levels are well designed, well balanced, and, due to being designed for much more powerful systems than those in original DOOMs, are much more detailed. They are also about as non-linear as levels in original games and are fun to explore - I actually took time to find every single secret on every level, including the secret level.
If you like old DOOM games, No Rest for the Living is a must-have.
It is dead. There are no servers and no players. You could still find some people willing to play on Steam forums, but don't expect to just jump in for a quick match.
