DOOM 3 is a first-person shooter, the third installment in the series, serving as a reboot to the previous games.


As the game is set in a science fiction universe, the events span accordingly. The year is 2145, and the technological progress has allowed humanity to set up different facilities on Mars. After an experiment goes wrong, the research center becomes inhabited by demons. The player controls a nameless space marine, fighting off hordes of enemies through a variety of levels.


The playable character employs a large arsenal of weaponry for his cause, from common firearms to the series’s trademark BFG9000. Each level of the game is linear, as the player must often either retrieve information, some device or reach the checkpoint. However, there are numerous obstacles on the way to the objective: the protagonist has to fight off not only demons and their servants, but also combat the natural enemy in the form of darkness.

Graphics and music

The engine of the game incorporates lighting and shadowing, making every object in the game feel real and natural. The textures are designed to be unappealing, as a psychological tool to ensure the player’s urge to get rid of the enemies and escape the dark and ruined corridors, but at the same time, the level of detail in each location and each enemy is very high.

        DOOM 3 reviews and comments

        Translated by

        It was very good in its time, and I had really enjoyed it at the time.... but there, really, in 2015, after rage, Crysis, stalker, Wolfenstein new order, and I pass, the feeling of weapons and movements is really too outdated.... and with all due respect, and even if I am well aware that it represents a milestone of the FPS, you must be a fan boy as nostalgic as enraged to recommend it today.... It's never good to grow old.... and it's even more true for video games....

        Doom 3, remains a classic and there are already tons of evaluations. It remains for me the witness of a time when the modding was at its peak. From the creation of its own dedicated servers, maps, sounds, 3D models, scripts etc. From the full gameplay change has just a few tweak. Certainly this still exists for some games, but less and less. The modding extended the life of the game but not that, it created around this world of teams and a fantastic dynamic. Nothing more intense than a last man standing tweaked with small onions to sublimate the experience of Doom3.

        Having played this game before the advent of steam (steam counter-game so) this was and will remain a great memory of the FPS. For me the first one to really scare me and distill a permanent anguish, while these qualities were reserved at that time to the excellent survivals such as RE or Silent Hill, but absent from the FPS. Doom 3 will thus open the way to the great FEAR and whatnot. But to return to the game in question, his graphics have won me the jaw more than once with this impression of the synthesis of the master J. Carmack, and I do not even talk about his dynamic shadows! The sound atmosphere was also appropriate and participated in this constant apprehension of the underlying danger, and I remember a good difficulty and a correct lifespan. Short less nag than the license doom in general but a great doom anyway! A must-have historical.

        If some Criticisms are made, the Beginning would be more like the Calm before the Storm. For me, Doom is still the Genre rider in Terms of Ego Shooters, measured in a Hardness scale. It's precisely down to the Seam, compelling inrelistic Cardboard Camera shooting And what's more sophisticated. There is much to shoot, but everything still has its understandable Logic. The Rooms don't even seem so monotonous to me yet, it's all arranged as varied as possible, it's rather the prevailing Darkness and Gloom, which pushes very depressively. There is no Sense of strategic Superiority involved, it feels more like pure Self-defense, always equally sandwiched from all Sides, somewhere. Not so new anymore, but negotiable, a Piece of Video Game history. As a Tip perhaps, don't necessarily play at the highest Level, as the Textures otherwise appear unharmonious and no longer fit together properly.
