Alright so Doom 3 for PC. What to say? It’s easier than on console, that is for sure (but then again I am not the biggest console player out there) - I played it on Normal, and in large parts of the game, I could have cranked the game up enemy wise, and then BLAM suddenly you are flooded in enemies in a small area, where you cannot avoid their fire, and cannot throw a grenade. So in that way it was very irregular in the difficulty.
And besides that you don’t have the slow-mo option, then it plays out like F.E.A.R, so much so that I refuse to believe that they didn’t squint to that when they deveoloped this.
The Boss battles reminds me of Painkiller, and the FPS of old, that there is 1 way of killing the beast, and you have to die and reload 20 times, before you figure it out. I find that both outdated, and tiresome tbh.
The story is WAY better than in the old games (Durr) and I enjoyed listening to the audiologs, and reading ppls emails, they help giving a sense of urgency and reason for going where you happen to be going. They kept the ‘omg where the fuck is that keycard’ part, but more logical than in the old games, where the damn keycard could be three maps back, and you’d just be stuck, because you didn’t flip a certain switch.
My main problem with this game is the lack of goddamn ammo, I don’t even considder myself to be one of those ppl who waste ammo right and left, but damn it’s scarce, or well scarce is not the word, cause there are lockers and stuff, there is just not enough of it.
And the jumping, omg the jumping.. I died more times (attempting to) jumping over lava, and those fucking flaming skulls knocking me off, or the beholders (are they even called that in this game, the huge flying lumps), than I did in any boss fight. And I have to say that I was only killed by a demon knight once. Those aren’t bad, they are slow and easy to dodge. Those fast little shit that jump right at you, are far worse imo.
So is it worth 9 euro? sure. I had two days of solid entertainment, and computer anger management. ^^
PS: Also that teleporter anus/colon is just weird.
