This review is from: Doom 3 BFG Edition (Video Game)
I played Doom 1, 2, and 3 when they first came out years ago. This game is awesome but don't expect mind-blowing graphics like some reviewers are expecting. I don't have any graphics of the old game to compare this new edition to but it seems they are no worse and no better. They are quite adequate though and this game is a blast to play! Yes, you do have to connect to the internet initially, using Steam, but once you have installed you CAN play offline. I do it every day. Some reviewers rated the game low because they did not want to connect to Steam online. I repeat, you DO NOT have to connect to Steam once the installation is complete. There are settings on your Steam account that you can select to play offline.
That said, this game is a BLAST. New levels are added and the sound is enhanced for Doom 3. You no longer have to hold the flashlight in place of the gun. That alone makes Doom 3 better.
DOOM 4 will be out hopefully soon after the first of the year and this game enhances the waiting period.
