Doom 3: BFG Edition Released
For gamers of a certain age, the videogame Doom was an unforgettable experience.
While it wasn’t the first FPS, it was the one that secured the genre and paved the way for many, many great and not-so-great titles down the years.
Doom 3, released in 2004, was intended to show anyone who cared to watch that the series was still the big man on campus, though the FPS genre had moved on and evolved, even if only a little. Sadly, it didn’t quite manage to make good on a lot of the promises it made and even though it was a good game, it ended up feeling a little flat.
Still, if you want to find out for yourself just what all the fuss is, and was, about, then you could do worse than checking out Doom 3: BFG edition, which you can pick up now. Remastered to look good on modern HD screens and kitted out with 3D graphics, should you be lucky enough to afford that kind of thing, it also includes the Resurrection of Evil expansion pack. Some previously cut content, the “Lost Levels”, has been added into this version, so it may well be worth your while to pick it up on either PC, PS3 or Xbox 360.
