I'd been eagerly awating this release as a long-time Doom fan. It's been a long time since 1993 and the first instalment of this ground-breaking first person shooter, now it's been given a makeover for it's release on the Xbox 360.
I played Doom 3 before on the original Xbox and PC and the game itself hasn't changed a great deal. The graphics are noticeable sharper and the controls are easier to use. One of the bugbears from the original game was the lack of ability to use a flashlight and a weapon at the same time. That's been fixed with this version so you can flick on the light using LT whilst blasting away with RT. The flashlight does slowly run down so you need to keep an eye on it so that it doesn't go out suddenly while you're in the middle of a firefight.
The game includes all the content from the 'Resurrection of Evil' add-on pack plus more new levels called the 'Lost Mission'. And for true retroheads like me, you also get the original Doom and Doom 2. There's also co-op and multiplayer options but I haven't tried these yet.
Recommended for fans of the original, however I suspect the price will come down fairly quickly on this so you might want to hang on for a couple of months.
