Many will argue otherwise, but I found Doom3 to be a pretty enjoyable romp.
No, it wasn’t scary at all (oooh… monsters in the cloest!) and yes, it was hyped way beyond its means (especially as Far Cry stole most of its technical thunder), but the gunplay was solid and what semblance of a plot was there worked… sortof… I guess…
Still, out to prove that they learn from their mistakes (take heed Epic), id software have now hired a professional writer – Graham Joyce – to help develop the plot into something that won’t be written off 5 seconds into the game.
So can we expect eclectic, eccentric (and so very very British) situations when we return to Hell? Who knows, as no direction has been outlined or employed yet.
