Watch The Doom 3 BFG Edition Trailer

I have to admit I’m a little excited about the Doom 3 BFG Edition. Not only will the disc contain the complete Doom trilogy on the current generation of consoles, but Doom 3 has been updated, and it looks actually pretty great. As is often the case, the release of an updated version of a game as old as Doom 3 suggests some real movement on the long next installment of the series, Doom 4. We’ll be at QuakeCon this year, and hopefully we’ll be getting a closer look at both the Doom 3 BFG Edition, and Doom 4.

Here’s the trailer. Enjoy

Doom 3 is a joke even on PC, I have pre ordered this game on PC because I was so damn excited. After playing the game I was very disappointed and never picked it up again it is gathering dust now.

I got to the very last level on Doom 3 and stopped, and already had the expansion ready to go, but never played it. It was just so repetitive and bland. It’s like id know how to innovate technically, but they fail to advance in game design. Monster closets worked when the genre was new and fresh, but they were tedious by the time Doom 3 rolled out. It’s like they failed to see how the genre had advanced since the original Doom games.

Dead Space was everything that Doom 3 should’ve been, just in first-person. And the demons should’ve looked like demons, cliché designs and all. I found it baffling that the creature designs and level designs in the old Doom games did a better job of evoking that feeling of trepidation and horror of confronting actual demonic forces. In Doom 3, the majority of the creatures merely looked like alien beasts. I had nightmares back when Doom came out, Doom 3 had no such effect on me, and it has nothing to do with age. The difference is I actually enjoy getting nightmares about games now.

Even so, this pack would be worth getting for anyone that doesn’t already own the original games. Doom and Doom II are still incredibly fun to play as standard no frills shooters. I already own the entire id catalog on Steam, so this would be a redundant purchase for me.

When Doom 3 first came out I was really disappointed, it didn’t seem to improve much over the leaked beta other than adding much needed polish. Though that said it’s one of the games I most often replay.

Once you accept it as basically a mindless shooter, which is what Doom in, it’s enjoyable. Also the fan made graphics mods make the game look good even by today’s standards, probably better than what this BFG edition will have.
