Has anyone bought it?
Has anyone played it?
Has anyone formed an opinion on it?

I got it on Monday. My computer's graphic card is obsolete and I need joystick. Keyboard is a pain in the @$$.

My two pennies.

Looking to get it.
My Graphics card may need upgraded (128mb but low end Nvida - Gateway Computer) - ATi's 9600 / 9700 are "resonable $$$" now may go that route.
Snapshots of the graphics I have seen are outstanding.

You Like it ?

I'm quite sure that you can hardly compare Doom and Doom 2 to Doom 3.

I just did a quick search and could find nothing...do you guys have a link for a demo for anybody else to try out the game?

This game must be the shiznit. The nerdy dude who hangs out with my group is buying a ton of new crap for his computer to play this one game. Maybe I'll go play it at his house one day. Until then, I don't care - it can't be good enough to drop more than $50 on.

Despite how crappy the graphics were with Doom for PS1, I had a lot of fun with it. I didn't like the rushed pace of UT, but I still can't get enough of Quake for any system since they are similar to Doom, etc.

Man, let me tell you, it IS good enough. The old doom 1 set a landmark in the game world, and this one is supposed to do the same. The trailer is amazing, I can't wait to play it...

I hear that - Doom I was a quantum leap - damn near feel outta my chair playing on my 486dx with 14 Inch Monitor 4mb Ram :rolleyes:

Now the graphic card I am looking at will have more memory (128mb) than my original PC had hard drive (120 mb HD ) _ am looking forward to it ....maybe hit Best Buy tomorrow ..ummmmmmmmmm :coolgleam

I guess a game just isn't that important to me. Plus I'd have to upgrade my video card which would cost a lot since I need video capture and output. I'll just let my friend buy it and mooch off him. I give him rides alot in the Caddy so it's fair...

Go go into a dark room, a boogie man jumps out. You're in a dark hallway, a boogie man jumps out. Repeat 1000x and you have Doom3. AWESOME graphics, but rather repetitive. Gets your nerves in a bunch though, turn down the lights when you do play!

I loaded it up on my laptop, before turning it loose on the 'home' desktop. (The laptop worked better than I expected too - dell inspiron 8200..)

It does offer the same kind of 'hair-standing-on-the-back-of-your-neck' tenseness as the 1st doom did. But, spock is 'logically', what else, correct - the boogey men do change as the levels increase though.

Make Sure your drivers are up-to-date! (I popped an ati radeon 9800pro in the desktop, and still needed to get a later version driver from their site.)
