3.0 out of 5 stars DOOM 3 BFG, is it really better?, October 17, 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Doom 3 BFG Edition (Video Game)
If you are a horror game fan and have never played DOOM 3 or have only played the original Xbox version, the BFG Edition is a must own!!! However, this release is not meant for those who already own DOOM 3 on PC. There just isn't enough additions to justify re-purchasing this game unless you are a huge DOOM fan. Below is a list of updates for the PC followed by a graphical comparison of current PC modifications and the BFG edition.
1. Updated Textures and lighting.
2. Wider range of resolution support.
3. Controller support and aim assist.
4. More frequent save checkpoints.
5. 3D support.
6. Armor mounted flashlight and the removal of the handheld flash light.
7. Bonus levels called the "Lost Missions".

Here is a video comparison I made for those PC owners who are curious about the graphics upgrade.

A customer says:
So what is this like? Did Bethesda just remake the original Doom 3 or what?

I'm a huge DOOM fan as I go all the way back to playing the original shareware DOOM over dialup (showing my age). I don't mind paying for the game as I'm a big fan of the franchise but I don't know if it's worth it. I'm going back through the game currently and I have a high-end gaming laptop that runs DOOM3 with all the detail jacked to the max with no issue whatsoever. I'm one of the few people that didn't mind the flashlight vs. gun (adds to the terror of the game if you ask me) but if the only selling point would be updated textures, I'm not sure if this is worth it for me.

Thanks for making the comparison. I was curious what this was. Played the demo back in the day and didn't think much of it. Pretty graphics yes, but gameplay I've seen done already (and better) in the AVP series (everybody knows by now that Doom was originally inspired by the movie Aliens).

Thank you for the concise review that actually answers all the questions I have about the game.

8. No crosses on health items in classic Doom
9. Censored Wolfenstein maps in Doom 2, which means no nazis or anything that was in original physical (or Steam) version of Doom 2.
10. 1.5x ammo, resulting in too much ammo in Doom 3.
11. Shoulder mounted flashlight, meh.
12. Considerably brighter, which ruins the "horror" aspect for Doom 3.
13. No flashlight shadows (pre patch).

I'm sorry to sound negative but I do not like it when a game that needs no changes is changed to appeal to the hand-holding newcomers to FPS games.

I'd say they watered it down if you ask me. Very embarrassing in comparison to original 2004 release of Doom 3 and the classic Doom games.
