Guaranteed to live with you long after you hit shut down
When Doom first shot to fame in 1993, its pleasures were simple and incessantly brutal: butcher everything that moved and get the hell out of a Martian space station overrun by Beelzebubs bad boys. Now, after four years in development, the nightmare is back, only this time its evolved into a very different beast.
Unlike the previous games where your only motivation was survival, Doom 3 brings a strong sense of storytelling to the slaughter; this time the nightmarish tale unfolds in a series of slick CG movies, making for a deeper, more compelling experience where you actually care what happens to your hapless hero.
But the main reason to buy Doom 3 is its genuinely terrifying atmosphere from realistic, dancing shadows to towering Hell-spawn, this is one game thats guaranteed to live with you long after you hit shut down. As Arnie said in Total Recall, Get your ass to Mars.
