I am, personally, a huge fan of the original Doom games, and from what I've seen, Doom 3 is very different, I still haven't received my copy. I know that you can't take on about 40 imps at a time like you could in Doom 2, on levels like the suburbs. I'm just wonderin' how similar the games are.

I haven't played the game but I have seen clips where the action is just as intense as before will you run around shooting enemies as the re appear behind you or in darkness. Almost all of the guns and enemies are back. However you won't be able to fight on more then 10 enemies at a time due to the power it takes to run the game. Fist are almost useless, and if you wan't to look around you need to have a flashlight which requires you to switch from your weapon to the flashlight, this can also be used as a meele weapon, so I have heard. Oddly enough your marine can never seem to find some tape or something in order to attach the flashlight to your gun.

Doom and DOom II, like you said, are played by u killing 20 imps at a time. However, i think doom iii will be much scarier due to the fact that u can only kill 1 or 2 zombies at once. This is because that too much monsters somewhere make this feel like more of an action game than a horror game. I frankly like having one monster sneaking up on u instead of 20--somehow that is scarier. Right?

THe gore is terrible. You rarely fight over 5 enemies at once. None of the weapons hav a secondary fire. Flashlight cant be armed with a gun [there will be a mod for that very soon i think] Also, the flashlight is off center. Don't ask about that one. The game is still very fast paced but is also VERY dark. I love the game. The gore will be modded and so will the flashlight. Its only day 2 dudes.

The flashlights fine the way it is, and having it armed with a gun as well is pointless, defeats the whole object of the game, unless your crap and you have to cheat :P
