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 veteran or newcomer, the BFG Edition is a superb addition to any collection.

Impressive efforts with a few noticeable problems holding it back. Won't astound everyone, but is worth your time and cash.

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.

Rely on Horror
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.

Los más veteranos seguro que reciben con los brazos abiertos este remake de Doom 3, título que sigue conservando el encanto del original pero sobre el que el paso del tiempo ha hecho mella en su vertiente jugable y tecnológica. Las adiciones de Doom y Doom 2 son un lujo, y especialmente para los usuarios de consolas, Doom 3 BFG: Edition es una forma fantástica de disfrutar de un shooter "puro". En el caso de compatibles la elección es más dudosa, ya que no soporta mods y entre los trabajos de la comunidad hay verdaderas maravillas.

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 is still an enjoyable romp through armies of hellspawn, and if you've yet to play the Doom series, there's a lot to like here. Just be prepared for plenty of repetitive strafing and fragging lots of demon ass. This is clearly the devil's work.

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…

PlayStation Lifestyle
For those of us that remember the early days of gaming, adding every DOOM game known to man on one disc is a welcome addition to our gaming library. For those of you that weren’t around back then, DOOM 3: BFG Edition is a great way to see how far the gaming world has come in the last twenty or so years.

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.

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.

PS3-Spieler müssen mit deutlich längeren Ladezeiten leben, ansonsten entspricht die Fassung der 360-Version. Die ersten beiden Doom-Teile laufen nur hier optimal.

Un poil trop cher que ce Doom 3 BFG Edition. Alors certes, la galette contient tout de même Doom 3, Resurrection of Evil, The Lost Mission, Doom et Doom II mais l’aspect remasterisation n’est pas franchement convaincante. Le titre original et ses extensions ont tout même un peu vieilli tant dans la réalisation que dans les mécaniques de gameplay. Et ce n’est ni le nouveau système de sauvegarde, ni l’option 3D qui nous convaincront du contraire. A réserver à ceux qui ne connaissent pas bien la série et qui veulent frissonner devant leur écran, mais aussi aux possesseurs de consoles qu’aux joueurs PC. Pour les autres, attendez une occasion du feu de Doom pour l’acquérir !

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.

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.
