Summary

A pointless extension to the original masterpiece.

The Good

Doom ruled. Doom 2 was better. But this? How long can you possibly capitalize on a long-gone game? This is just a pointless extension to the original Doom.

It has great level design, the most groundbreaking 3D engine ever, wonderful music and graphics. But still.

The Bad

The engine is old, the levels are too similar to the previous Doom games, and goddamnit man - how long can a company keep publishing games based on the same old engine?

The Bottom Line

A good game in its own right, but it annoys me that they've actually decided to sell it.
