The original release of DOOM 3 on PC in 2004 not only represented a landmark in real-time graphics technology, but the game itself was genuinely gripping and one of the first titles I had ever played that could legitimately be called an ‘experience.’
I vividly remember creeping through the darkened hallways of DOOM 3’s vision of the Mars research facility, with what (at the time) resembled movie set-quality areas with jaw-dropping detail and movement – this was a real place, and Hell had engulfed it, twisting and contorting the world to its evil will.
It was terrifying.
Now, here in 2012, DOOM 3: BFG Edition is available in the US across Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, and will launch in Europe, the UK and South Africa later this week.
This remastered version of the classic title comes standard with the ‘Resurrection of Evil’ add-on pack, eight all-new levels in ‘The Lost Mission’ scenario, gameplay enhancements and visual improvements, as well as the original DOOM and DOOM II.
It’s an horrific amount of content – see it all in action in the just-released launch trailer for DOOM 3: BFG Edition below:
