Re:My Review OF BFG Edition
When I played the original Doom 3, I was impressed;The graphics we're really good, the gameplay was solid, and the A.I. For the game was spot on. When I had heard ID Software we're re-releasing the game, I was curious to see how it would differ from the original. Second, if you have played the Original Doom 3, Don't buy this, seriously. This could have been better than it actually is. Reasons why I didn't care for this version are:
1. ID software, before the release we're saying this would have improved graphics, but if you have played the original and you have played this, The lighting is brighter. Doom 3 was meant to be a dark/scary game.
2. When I played the original game, I liked the idea of having to switch to you're gun to you're flashlight, just to make it through the dark levels of the game, but with this, you're flashlight is mounted on you're shoulder. Also, In the original release, you used you're right hand to use the pistol, and with this, it's no different. They should have made it to where you used both hands to use the pistol, and not just one.
3. While Their was an expansion pack released with the bfg edition(when the original game came out, you had to buy the expansion pack seperately) the graphics still look the same as they did back when the original game came out.
4. While ID was saying this was an upgraded version, why not then put some new monsters to fight, instead of the same ones that we're in the original release and ppl who played the original already know how to take them out.
All in all, I was really hoping for a different gaming experience with this, but sadly, it didn't happen. The original Doom 3 was great, and this is just a muddled over pc to console port.I'm sticking with the Original. Better luck next time ID.
