Doom 3: Resurrection of Evil review

If the demonic zombies don't get you, the boredom will

For

  • The double-barreled shotgun is back!
  • Killer graphics and lighting effects
  • New modes extend online replay value

Against

  • New bad guys aren't that new
  • Pretty pictures
  • boring gameplay
  • We've seen the gravity gun before

If you scare easily, Doom 3: Resurrection of Evil can be a heart-pounding experience. But if it takes more than dark corridors and monsters jumping out of corners to make you sweat the cold stinky sweat of fear, Nerve Software's expansion pack quickly becomes a tedious trek through "Been-There-Ville."

The story is about as creative as Doom gets: It's two years after the events of Doom 3 and you're part of a Marine force sent in to trace a homing beacon from deep in the facility. Soon enough, you accidentally unleash the forces of Hell once again. Now you'll have to trek through the UAC Mars base and Hell itself all while blasting holes in demons and reading other people's private electronic journals for clues and backstory.
