This is very obviously a teaser for Doom 4. This collection is a little something for fans to whet their appetites with in preparation for id's long-awaited reveal of the long-in-development fourth installment. With that said, this is one of the best HD re-releases I've played so far. You won't confuse this with any recently released games, but outside of some obvious trademarks of the previous generation of games (such as an overall lack of detail on the characters and world), this is a stunning game.

Doom 3 BFG Edition isn’t the complete, ultimate Doom collection I was hoping for but it’s still a lot of great content in one place and for a good price. Even if I prefer the original games modded to fan perfection, BFG Edition is a great entry point for novices, or a good way for lapsed fans to rediscover the blood, carnage and white knuckle terror of Doom.

Come introdotto in precedenza Doom è una pietra miliare del panorama videoludico. Nonostante i suoi difetti ormai datati, sarebbe forse un po’ troppo scontato e soprattutto irriverente criticarlo in termini di gameplay e resa grafica accostandolo alle nuove produzioni. Non dimentichiamo inoltre che un titolo fps o terza persona survival horror avrebbe il compito di tener in tensione il giocatore se non di spaventarlo e angosciarlo come potrebbe accadere, con la lettura di un ottimo libro o di un film visto a luci spente. Purtroppo le nuove produzioni investendo su resa grafica, IA e gamplay, perdono spesso di vista questo obiettivo, che viene trascurato a scapito di una maggior componente “action “ .

Doom 3 BFG Edition is an outstanding package for the price tag. If you have never played the original Doom 3, it is a must for fans of the genre. I have been anticipating the announcement of Doom 4 for a long time, as I grew up playing the original series on my PC and simply love it. If you have played the game, this is by far the best version outside of modding it on PC with those crazy texture packs. Anyway you slice it, I really think this is a solid collection for the price, and anyone who loves the series should definitely check it out. Doom is solidified in my brain as one of the greats in gaming history, and this package shows you why.

Doom 3: BFG Edition is, without a doubt, the definitive collection for fans of this series. The package brings together virtually every Doom offering that has ever existed, with additions like the "duct tape" mod and The Lost Missions amounting to delicious gravy. We've seen many iterations of the various games in re-releases over the years, but BFG Edition is the best. Hopefully it's also the last that we see before the long-rumored reveal (and release) of Doom 4.

DOOM 3 BFG Edition is basically an appetizer for the main course that is DOOM 4. Still, it’s a fantastic bundle for any horror enthusiast or DOOM fan, or even anyone looking to relive one of the better games of the last generation. It’s flawed, sure, but there’s almost a bit of charm in that.

PlayStation 3Impulse Gamer
I'm happy to give this title such a solid score based on just how much fun it is and how little is wrong with it. Sprinkle in the fact that it's a polished older game that is packed full of fun and there will be little reason why gamers won't be fighting their way through a hellishly altered version of Mars for quite some time to come.

In the end, Doom 3 BFG Edition is definitely worth it. It’s a game that continues to stand as one of the best survival horror games, and hell, it’s scarier than most of the mainstream horror games we’ve gotten in this console generation. Some parts may be a bit dull, but that doesn’t stop the entire experience from being truly memorable and highly replayable. Thanks to this release I was finally able to experience each main game in the series all in one place.

Doom 3 is a very good game, probably better than you remember. For PS3 owners who've never gotten any of this content, it's a particularly great deal. BFG Edition is a tough sell for the PC crowd, but console jockeys who missed it when it was the next big thing should dive on in. While several nagging issues can make it feel more like a rushed port rather than the definitive director's cut it should be, there's no denying that Doom 3 has improved with age.

Doom 3: BFG Edition raccoglie parte della storia del celebre brand in un comodo pacchetto, aggiungendo un paio d'ore di gameplay inedito con i sette livelli che compongono The Lost Mission. Purtroppo mancano Final Doom e i Master Levels di Doom 2, oltre al multiplayer per i primi due capitoli, e 40 euro, ovvero dieci in più rispetto alla versione PC, non sono pochi. Ma l'esperienza offerta dal titolo idSoftware resta di alto livello, nonostante le modifiche tese ad aumentare la frenesia che tradiscono, in parte, l'impostazione del titolo. Per fortuna restano intatti svariati momenti di tensione che esaltano il perfetto gioco di luci ed ombre ulteriormente potenziato dal nuovo sistema di illuminazione. Purtroppo, nonostante le migliorie, il comparto tecnico, almeno per quanto riguarda la versione Xbox 360 del titolo, subisce il passare degli anni e le mancanze in termini di map design emergono ormai con prepotenza.

Doom 3 BFG Edition è indubbiamente una buona riedizione, ricchissima di contenuti e in grado di fare la felicità degli amanti della serie. Meriterebbe l’acquisto già solo per il fatto di contenere i primi due Doom, ma offre anche missioni extra e un restyle grafico ben fatto, seppur tutt’altro che imponente. I cambiamenti apportati alla torcia faranno probabilmente storcere il naso ai puristi, ma l’opera di Id mantiene gran parte della sua atmosfera e il classico gameplay che tanto l’ha fatta apprezzare al momento dell’uscita. I modder avranno pane per i loro denti fino all’arrivo del quarto capitolo.

Doom 3 BFG Edition is, on the one hand, a grand celebration of Doom, bringing together the first two games with an updated version of the third, along with its expansion and a new side adventure, and on the other, a bit of a mess. The minor slowdown, the weird restriction of having to play the original two through My Games and not the in-game menu if the third is installed, and the lack of an option to revert to the old style of play are unfortunate, given the age of the titles and the opportunity to bring Doom to a new generation. Even though its cyclic encounter design wears thin towards the end, I was surprised by how much I still enjoyed Doom 3 and how atmospheric it remains. It may have lost some of the ‘oomph’ of the first two by going the horror route, but it remains a solid shooter—and one that happens to be available alongside two of the best.

Mit der BFG Edition ist id Software kein großer Wurf gelungen. Sie bietet dem PC-Spieler praktisch nichts, was er dank Mods nicht schon seit Jahren gratis bekommen kann - teils sogar in besserer Qualität. Die Neuauflage richtet sich also eher an Konsolenspieler, die bislang ohne diesen hübsch altmodischen Mars-Schocker auskommen mussten. Aber auch wenn das Gesamtpaket nicht alles richtig macht (wo ist der Koop-Modus für Doom 1 und 2?!), war ich doch überrascht, wie viel Spaß mir des olle Doom 3 wieder macht: Der sanftere Schwierigkeitsgrad und die neue Taschenlampe machen die Gruselschießbude endlich auch für ängstliche Waschlappen wie mich genießbar und lassen mich über das haarsträubend altmodische Leveldesign voller Wandschrank-Zombies hinwegsehen. Ich hab‘s gerne noch mal durchgespielt.

Neuauflagen großer Klassiker liegen derzeit voll im Trend, aber id hätte sich schon ein wenig mehr ins Zeug legen können. Wer die alten Teile bereits besitzt, hat wenig Grund, sich die BFG Edition zu holen. Grafisch bieten Mods schon lange mindestens genauso viel. Die Lost Mission fällt zwar unterhaltsam, aber auch recht kurz aus und rechtfertigt keinen Neukauf. Und für jede Verbesserung gibt’s hier eine Verschlimmbesserung, sodass letztendlich mehr ein anderes Spiel als ein eindeutig überlegenes herauskommt. Warum zum Beispiel die Grafik verbessern, aber die Optionen reduzieren? Warum die Taschenlampe dauerhaft verfügbar machen, aber ihren dynamischen Schattenwurf streichen? Oft drängt sich der Eindruck auf, dass hier mehr an die Konsolenfassungen gedacht wurde als an den PC – bei einer derart traditionsreichen Serie doppelt ärgerlich.

So, aside from the two hours of new levels for Doom 3, everything on the BFG Edition has been out there free, or cheap, for years. But if you want all three games for your console, the Doom 3: BFG Edition is for you. You get a straight port of Doom and Doom II, a nicely polished up HD version of Doom 3, and a chance to send a whole lot of monsters to hell. It’s Doom. Marine, grab the biggest freakin’ gun you can find and follow me.

Se vi state chiedendo se Doom 3 sia un titolo da giocare (o ri-giocare) anche al giorno d’oggi, sarei più propenso a rispondere di no: l’atmosfera è ancora in grado di suscitare emozioni, ma il nuovo funzionamento della torcia e l’imperante sensazione di avere tra le mani qualcosa di vecchio contribuiscono a far pendere la bilancia dal lato sbagliato. In più l’unico contenuto inedito è, in realtà, un riciclo di elementi già visti in precedenza: se siete appassionati della saga, vale più la pena di acquistare Doom 3 BFG Edition per avere nella propria collezione i primi due storici capitoli piuttosto che per rigiocare la versione rivista (non troppo bene) di Doom 3.

Doom 3 has aged fantastically well. Provided you haven’t already played the games in this collection, BFG Edition is also a solid value. However, if you already own the XBLA Doom games or have played Doom 3 on PC, recommending BFG Edition becomes less easy to do. As a fan of Doom 3, I feel like BFG Edition misses a good deal of its potential, especially if you compare it to last year’s Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary. Doom 3 newbies should jump right in but veterans should weigh their options first.

Doom 3 BFG Edition is een testament voor de overbekende en baanbrekende shooterserie dat alle aspecten van het spel uitlicht. De uitstekende belichting, sfeer en het geweldige gebruik van geluid zijn als vanouds, maar van vrijwel alle andere onderdelen van de game zijn we ondertussen veel beter gewend. Doom 3 is een verouderde game, maar ook nog steeds een ontzettend vette game.

PlayStation 3Gameplanet
Doom 3 BFG is great value, considering everything that is included. But as a stand-alone HD remake of Doom 3, it’s slightly disappointing, despite the inclusion of a whole new mission. Just a little more polish would have made this a must-have just for Doom 3 itself. Thankfully its two predecessors are along to provide some added value.

Doom 3: BFG Edition isn’t that impressive. The old game has received minimal updates, at least on the PC, so you’re much better off buying the old game, putting whatever mods you want, and experiencing it once more.

Wer mit Doom 3: BFG Edition Spaß haben will, muss seine verwöhnten Augen erst einmal kräftig zudrücken: Diverse grobe Texturen und vor allem die kantigen Charaktere machen altes andere als einen zeitgemäßen Eindruck. Trotz grafischer Überarbeitung sieht diese Neuauflage altbacken aus. Auch an die Finessen-arme Spielmechanik und das durchsichtige, oft tumbe Gegnerverhalten muss man sich erst (wieder) gewöhnen. Und doch zog mich Doom 3 nach kurzer Anwärmphase in seinen Bann, schließlich ist die dauerdüstere Gänsehaut-Atmosphäre zeitlos und das Design in seiner altmodischen Schlichtheit erfrischend: Sammeln, ausweichen und abschießen, Raum für Raum, Gang für Gang, Level für Level - wunderbar geradlinige Shooter-Action. Mehr Liebe zum Detail beziehungsweise weniger Schlamperei wäre aber doch ganz nett gewesen: Auf Konsolen hat man bei der (ordentlich synchronisierten) deutschen Version die englische Tonspur weggelassen, dagegen fehlt auf dem PC bei Doom 1 und 2 die Multiplayer-Komponente.

The DOOM 3 BFG Edition still boasts some decent thrills here and there, it controls fine, and the atmosphere remains impressive. However, id Software didn’t do enough (if they did anything) to upgrade the presentation, so we’re left with glaringly old-fashioned technical elements that hinder the quest at every turn. You still have to appreciate the style just because you see it so rarely, but that isn’t quite enough. There are a ton of great games out there right now, and the new shooters clearly outstrip this game. Hence, it seems that nostalgia isn’t always all we need…

Si l’on pouvait se réjouir d’une nouvelle édition pour Doom 3, force est de constater qu’id Software fait le strict minimum pour accueillir les joueurs consoles sur leur titre. BFG Edition revient sur l’un des aspects primordiaux du gameplay original, à savoir l’utilisation d’une arme ou de la lampe torche et pas les deux en même temps, et sacrifie donc une bonne partie de la difficulté et de l’ambiance sans oublier les sensations qui passent à la trappe. On aurait pu pardonner ce changement destiné aux nouveaux venus mais les joueurs PC que nous sommes ne pouvons décemment pas passer à côté de l’impossibilité de modder le jeu. Des mods qui, il faut bien le dire, fournissent des améliorations techniques bien plus visibles et séduisantes que le peu de travail fourni sur cette nouvelle édition. Sur consoles pourquoi pas, mais sur PC, à oublier.

Verdict pas simple à rendre, d'autant plus qu'il dépend fortement du support que l'on possède. Sur consoles, un joueur n'ayant jamais touché Doom III trouvera une bonne occasion de le découvrir. Bien sûr, il faudra savoir pardonner, beaucoup de ses mécaniques ont pris de l'âge, son aspect technique est tout juste correct et la distribution des monstres au compte-goutte dans la campagne principale n'aide pas à installer le rythme, même si les séquences d'actions les plus remuantes, surtout dans les deux add-on, parviennent compenser ces errances. Pas toujours facile d'être un jeune papy actif.

In conclusione, rispetto ad altri remake in HD visti negli ultimi tempi, soprattutto a quello di Halo, Doom 3 BFG Edition risulta molto meno convincente. Il sospetto che il gioco sia stato riesumato per non far perdere di vista il franchise in attesa di Doom 4 c'è, ma il risultato finale è purtroppo al di sotto delle aspettative.

Doom 3 BFG Edition är inget dåligt spel. Doom var stilbildande på sin tid, svinroligt och brutalt. Doom II var en fantastiskt uppföljare som jag spenderade hundratals timmar tillsammans med. Doom 3 var atmosfäriskt, becksvart och svinläbbigt för åtta år sedan och står sig som ett av de där tekniska underverken som drev grafikutvecklingen framåt. Det som gör mig avigt inställd till BFG Edition är att det i princip bara är samma gamla spel, en gång till, med sparsmakade nyheter. Att kunna spela de gamla klassikerna i widescreen samt möjligheten att kunna lira Doom 3 i 3D är enligt mig inte värt 300 kronor.

Trotzdem hat sich Doom 3 im Grunde besser gehalten, als ich zunächst erwartet hatte. Es ist immer noch ein Spiel, das mit beiden Beinen fest in den Neunzigern steht und mit seinem unnachgiebigen und ein bisschen gleichförmigen Geisterbahn-Terror eher in kleinen Dosen funktioniert. Aber wenn es klickt, dann richtig - und auch das muss man erst einmal hinbekommen. Wer die BFG Edition im Vorfeld allerdings für das letzte Wort in Sachen Doom gehalten hat, der sieht sich enttäuscht. Keines der Spiele dieser Sammlung liegt hier in seiner besten Version vor.

Το multiplayer είναι ιδιαίτερα φροντισμένο, προσφέροντας ποικίλα modes για κάθε γούστο ενώ το μπόνους των πρώτων δύο Doom συμπληρώνει επαρκώς το πακέτο.

All in all, the BFG Edition is a polished overhaul of an elderly but entertaining corridor blaster, bolstered by two major expansions and remastered editions of DOOM and DOOM 2 (also available separately on Xbox Live Arcade, and pretty much every other platform in existence). id Software's take on hell might be a little two-dimensional, but if you don't have the patience for the likes of Dead Space, this should scratch your diabolical itch.

Ultimately, this Doom 3 redux reveals a game that conjures the same tricks as its predecessors, but without the humour or flair. The game also seems dated when compared to the more recent shooters. But Doom is still Doom - a franchise that helped pioneer the genre - with its place in history guaranteed. For anyone wanting to reminisce or experience the shooter for the first time, the BFG Edition really is the ultimate way to blast those demons back to hell.

Doom 3 was a cutting-edge first-person shooter in 2004, but the intervening years have dulled its blade somewhat. The monsters and their movements now feel more hokey than horrifying, especially if you’ve faced the twisted nightmares that infest the Dead Space series. You’ll jump out of your skin a few times if you turn out the lights, but you’ll also wonder how anyone ever thought collecting locker and security-clearance codes provided sufficient excitement for the bulk of a 10-hour campaign.

I had planned to end this review with a recommendation that, if you don't need 3D or Rift support, you just stick with the regular Doom 3, which is highly moddable and which any modern PC will run perfectly fine. But the original game is no longer available for sale on Steam outside of the hundred-dollar id collection, meaning the BFG Edition is the best you're going to do right now if you want to buy a new copy of a shooter that, for better or worse, ranks among the most hyped video game releases of all time.

Il faut voir Doom 3 BFG Edition comme un petit cadeau aux fans. Une petite gourmandise qui nous permet d’avoir sur une même galette Doom 1 et Doom 2, pour faire plaisir aux plus vieux, des jeux intemporels toujours aussi agréables à jouer seul ou à plusieurs, et Doom 3 relifté accompagné de deux extensions pour prolonger le plaisir. Si on sait sur quoi on va tomber, on ne peut être déçu mis à part peut-être par la modification obligatoire de l’utilisation de la lampe torche -rendant l’expérience moins viscérale- et le manque de contenu bonus. Si l’on souhaite découvrir ces jeux pour la première fois sur nos belles consoles et télé d’aujourd’hui, le constat est un peu plus nuancé. Il faudra savoir tolérer des graphismes dépassés, des environnements exigus (pour Doom 3) et un gameplay dynamique mais loin des canons actuels. En gros, il vous faudra aimer les vieilleries. Mais Doom est dans ce domaine là toujours une bonne cuvée doublée d’une ambiance unique !

C'est bien connu, le temps n'a pas de prise sur les grands classiques : le fun immédiat retrouvé sur Doom et Doom II, inclus dans cette réédition, sont là pour le prouver. Hélas, Doom 3 n'a lui pas aussi bien vieilli, et quasi rien n'a été fait dans ce Doom 3 BFG Edition pour mettre le rendu graphique au goût du jour. Pire, les modifications apportées à la lampe-torche nuisent au parti-pris horreur du jeu original, dont les mécaniques action, très exploitées dans l'extension The Lost Mission, n'ont jamais été le point fort - et semblent aujourd'hui totalement dépassées. Bref, si le jeu reste agréable à parcourir, on a du mal à saisir la valeur ajoutée de cette simple réédition, sorti de sa sympathique compatibilité 3D.

Doom 3 never stretches to extremes, even when slavishly following its predecessors. It's a game that can startle you, for sure, but one that more often bores, the gunplay a low thrumming drone rather than a high-pitched screech of rage. Doom 3 is part of the most iconic FPS lineage gaming has, so your mind tries to make it fit that. But in the end, it doesn't. The truth about Doom 3, and it breaks my heart to say it, is that it just isn't very good.

There is some new content in the package: a new campaign for Doom II and an expansion for Doom 3. The new eight levels of DII are a lot of fun and harken back to what made the series so much fun in the first place—a flood of enemies all spread around a stage, all firing at once, and all unrelenting in their thirst for your blood. The strategy that came into play in those instances—firing through see-through barriers, bottlenecking the crowds when possible—is brought to a head with some fun, open level design. Sadly, that aspect is still lacking in this disc's namesake. It's just basic puzzle-solving and shooting when an enemy presents itself. The whole package, especially the visuals, reminds me of Duke Nukem Forever, and though I know the engine running Doom is the same in DNF, I don't mean that in a positive way.

If you’re a Doom-a-holic, you’ll already own the previous games and expansions but will likely be keen on this in order to blast through and gain achievements/trophies. While the gameplay and design does seem surprisingly archaic for a recent-ish game, there is enjoyment to be had in the mindless domination of brain-dead demonic hordes. We have been spoilt in subsequent years, which isn’t Doom 3’s fault. The unfortunate truth remains that it is more of a chore to revisit than a joy.

Doom 3: BFG Edition has its darkly atmospheric highlights. But a generous amount of content can’t salvage a package that’s decidedly dated. If you want a cracking Id shooter, buy Rage on PS3 for about a tenner, because this is one mission to Mars you’re better off skipping.

Très clairement, Doom 3 : BFG Edition se présente à la fois comme une compilation ultra-complète de l'univers de Doom avec trois épisodes et deux extensions, mais également comme une offre proposée sans grandes intentions. En effet, le jeu profite d'un lissage graphique sommaire pour s'adapter aux écrans HD, tout en proposant un unique contenu additionnel inédit finalement assez pauvre en durée de vie. Il convient donc de conseiller cette compilation aux fans absolus de la série, surtout dans la version console qui dispose d'un mode multijoueur en complément.

Doom 3 is not a terrible port but it has some fundamental issues. The controls are not well realised, the story is forgettable and the new features are not awe-inspiring. When it was first released it was forgiven some of its shortcomings because of the ground it broke visually, however, much of that content has been cheapened by clearer visuals or has simply aged too much. This coupled with ‘extra content’ that leaves you feeling a little disappointed makes for an overall weak package. With Halo 4 and Black Ops 2 just released, there are much better investment opportunities in the world of the FPS for your disposable income, making this re-release Doomed to the bargain bin.

Die schlimmste Fassung von allen: Sieht im Vergleich zum gemoddeten Original alt aus und schränkt die ursprünglichenen Dooms unverständlich ein.

Verdict pas simple à rendre, d'autant plus qu'il dépend fortement du support que l'on possède. Sur PC, aucun doute, cette BFG Edition ne présente guère d'intérêt, les mods HD offrant un bien meilleur résultat que ce vague remaster, sans parler des versions charcutées de Doom I et II. Mieux vaut donc ressortir son Doom III ou le racheter pour 20 euros. A moins de vouloir à tout prix payer 10 euros supplémentaires pour Lost Mission qu'il aurait sans doute été plus simple de distribuer comme un add-on. Attention, c'est donc bien le pack qui est noté ici.Sur consoles, un joueur n'ayant jamais touché Doom III trouvera une bonne occasion de le découvrir.

It wasn’t a very good game eight years ago and slightly improved graphics certainly don’t improve its standing now, but if nothing else this proves the world needs a Doom 4.

Découvrir Doom 3 en 2012 sur PS3 et Xbox 360 ne se fera pas sans une grosse appréhension. D'un côté, on sait que l'on touche à un titre qui a frappé très fort en 2004. De l'autre, on ne peut que constater une remasterisation quasi-absente pour un titre peu avenant et aux mécaniques grinçantes d'arthrite. Malgré un changement majeur (plus besoin d'alterner entre torche et armes), un contenu dense et l'ajout des deux premiers opus, difficile de justifier un craquage enthousiaste à 30 euros. Sauf pour parfaire sa culture, bien sûr.

Sammanfattningsvis går det inte att komma ifrån att Doom 3: BFG Edition känns som ett otroligt slappt skapat verk som cementerar id Softwares degradering till en ganska obetydande och medioker spelutvecklare som inte alls verkar bry sig om de fans som en gång gjorde dem till kungar.

Když jsem v roce 2004 třetího DOOMa poprvé hrál, radoval jsem se z výtečného Eura, ze své maturity, z krásné holky i hezkého léta, ale veškerý sentiment je teď zpřetrhán snahou Id Softu dostat za minimum práce maximální odměnu. Takhle se vzpomínkové edice nedělají. Pokud nemáte PS3 a vyloženě netoužíte po starých DOOMech, BFG edici si odpuste.

It may be dubbed the ultimate collection but even on consoles the BFG Edition is far from ideal. As a PC game its existence is highly questionable; any esoteric changes made on id’s part have already been done better by a dedicated modding community. Doom 3 may not be a groundbreaking title but there’s a certain reverence for many aspects of its experience, no matter how dated it has become. It was divisive, memorable and holds a particular place in history; the BFG Edition loses all of this. There’s no discerning reason for it.
