Doom 3 is a video game made for PCs in 2004 and ported to the original Xbox in 2005. It was developed by id Software and published by Activision. The game is a reboot of the original Doom (though according to the Doom RPG website, it is a prequel to Doom). The game had an expansion pack known as Resurrection of Evil which was not as well received but was still good nonetheless.
The game was expanded as Doom 3: BFG Edition in 2012. This version contained the original Doom and Doom 2, the Resurrection of Evil expansion and a new expansion pack known as The Lost Mission.
After finding the remains of an ancient civilization on Mars, the UAC develops teleportation technology and begins experimenting with it. However, they end up opening a portal to Hell while a scientist, Dr. Malcom Betruger, finds the Soulcube and sends it to Hell in an effort to aid the demons in conquering Earth. It's up to the new marine to find the SoulCube, seal Hell away and save Earth.
Why it Rocks
- Used an award winning game engine, id Tech 4.
- Doom 3 is much more story driven than the original Doom.
- The SoulCube can instantly kill any enemy (except the final boss) and restore the marines health. The marine just needs to kill five enemy's to activate the SoulCube.
- A multitude of weapons to collect and plenty of ammo for demon slaying.
- As you advance your quest, you can collect PDAs. PDAs are necessary to advance through the game because some have access to secure areas, but they also have the codes to cabinets which contain health, armor weapons and ammo. The PDAs also have E-Mails and audio logs which add more story to the game though there is also some spam.
- The dark areas in the game offer a sense of fear to the player, though luckily the marine has a flashlight.
- Unarmed zombies can be defeated easily with punches and can help save the marine precious ammo.
