Arr pc powerplay, a fine australian mag, AND IT HAS THE NEXT REVIEW!:D

No mention of "lame attempts at humour", the reviewer said it "provides a much needed comic touch" amidst the tension. Reviewer seems very impressed with the level design, saying that it's exceptionally well-done for a space station.

Some worthy quotes: "DOOM 3 is akin to a heavenly experience."

"The bar has been genuinely raised for the first time since Half-Life. DOOM 3 is the best first-person shooter ever made."

"The DOOM 3 shotgun - and believe me when I say I don't speak lightly here - is perhaps the single greatest thing ever."

"DOOM 3 is an exemplary case of just how an exquisitely balanced weapon economy can mine greater depth from a seemingly simple situation."

"Shadowy figures dart across your periphery vision, crazed voices call out for you to follow, satanic runes pulse along the walls, the screen distorts or drips blood and you'll surrender control for a moment all in an effort to unsettle you and sustain an ever present sense of menace."

"... the tale is predominantly told via voice and video links with the other main characters, while the finer details are further fleshed out through accessing emails and video and audio logs on the PDAs of the dead or missing."

"Early on you find an email from a guy complaining that an ordered shipment of jackhammers turned out to be chainsaws instead. 'What the hell were they thinking?' he writes. 'Chainsaws serve no purpose on Mars!' ;)"

Final Verdict: For - Gripping atmosphere - Superb level design - Perfect weapon balance - Awesome graphics

Against - We honestly can't think of any

Overall A frighteningly intense experience and an absolute masterpiece of FPS design.

Score: 96/100

And just to tell you, imo pcpp are very good reviewers so this is great news:)

The first page has some scans from one magazine. Then go to the 2nd page. There is a link that when you click on it, it will ask you to save to your pc. Do so. You will get about 6 or 7 scans from the zip file from a German pc mag.

Yes but the maps will be small with lots of dark places to conciel your self so it actually should create more on a tense enviroment then say 32 players.

Follow Mr. Doom's link, go to page 2 of that forum, scroll down, and there's another link, to download a zip file. It's picture #6 in that zip file.
