Trivia

German index

On May 31, 2005, DOOM³: Resurrection of Evil was put on the infamous German index by the BPjM. More information can be found in the game group.

Grabber

The game has taken a lot of flak because of one of its weapons: the grabber, which people claim is just a stupid copy of Half-Life 2's gravity gun. id Software has countered this by saying that the grabber was in DOOM³ long before Half-Life 2, but wasn't released in the original due to bugs. id Software also claims that the grabber was instrumental in designing DOOM³'s levels. The level designers would do a pristine laboratory, use the grabber to smash things up a bit, and save it as a whole new level, thus giving the game's levels a more "rugged" feel.

References

The Bruiser's television screen in place of its mouth, with the image of a mouth projected on it, might be a reference to Cain from the movie Robocop 2.
