The Doom Collection to have for Halloween!
, October 19, 2012
I have been a big fan of doom since it's release for PC many years ago
now it's released for the ps3 and it's Fantastic I really was amazed at how well
they redid the graphics for Doom 3 and the controls on all three Dooms are
exactly like mainstream FPS games (like CoD and Battlefield) using R1 to shoot R2 to change weapons L1 for flashlight (Doom 3 only)
what's more amazing is they have all THREE games running at a silky smooth
60 Frames Per Second which makes the older games look much better then previous ports. the sound effects are exact as they should be and the option to play
FOUR player split screen on Doom 1, 2, and Online MP for Doom 3 just makes this a Must Have package for
doom lovers everywhere. they also included Online Multiplayer
for Doom 3 and while simple compared to todays mainstream shooters,
it's still a blast to play with multiple game modes Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Tourney (one on one deathmatch) and Last Man (be the Sole Survivor). I am about 3 hours now into Doom, 5 hours into Doom 2 and about 6 hours into Doom 3 and if you're looking for a good
scare for Halloween this just might be what you're looking for.
Graphics: Doom 1 and 2 are smoother but mostly the same monster textures are smoother though (doom 1 and 2) Doom 3 looks Fantastic with it's HD makeover and is so creepy compared to most games from this gen. 5 stars
Sound: excellent and exact in D1 and 2 Doom 3 really shines here I am talking sound effects that will set you up to be scared and you will jump, trust me. easily 5 stars
Gameplay: thankfully they tuned all THREE games to run perfectly off the dualshock which makes the game control without effort, also lots of options for gamma, and sensitivity for the speed for turning etc. 5 stars!
Fun: after all these years Doom 3 still makes me jump and I love it. Doom 1 is as fun as I remember with all secrets right where they were in the original release. Doom 2 looks as good plus all hidden areas are still hidden well and the game plays perfectly Doom 3 is the perfect halloween scare game for me with it's Moody sounds and Creepy effects plus the Hd graphics. 5 stars!
Overall: some long load times and slightly intrusive Game Saves (autosave)(sometimes the autosave takes you out of the moment and is annoying fortunately it's mainly before a cutscene or at the end of a level. these are about the only mar on an otherwise perfect Doom release package. Multiplayer is a blast and the single player is just as fun if not more fun then I had remembered.
the graphical overhaul will have you on the edge of your seat since it really brought out the creepy atmosphere of this game. I'd recommend the Doom 3 BFG edition to anyone not just FPS fans. that's saying something. 5 stars for a perfect collection, possibly the best HD collection this year!
if you're question is "is it worth it?"
the answer is simple and easy "Yes it is!"
