Doom 3: Resurrection of Evil review

  • The double-barreled shotgun is back!
  • Killer graphics and lighting effects
  • New modes extend online replay value
  • New bad guys aren't that new
  • Pretty pictures, boring gameplay
  • We've seen the gravity gun before

A new capture-the-flag mode supports up to eight players for LAN and online play, but it's just a marginal improvement over the original.

Staying alive is definitely more challenging the second time around, but the game still feels extremely linear and simply lacks much surprise. Just like with Doom 3, RoE works best if you're afraid of the dark, but sadly most of us have outgrown that fear long ago.
