    You know, I am like the biggest Doom 2 fan ever. I have NEVER played Doom 3. Will I like Doom 3 if I get it?

    That depends. Do you like flashlights?

    I love flashlights. I would love it if Doom 3 was darker and freakier than Doom 2, is that the case?

    It's the world's premier flashlight simulator. Here's a typical level:

    "Hmm, the lights just went out!"

    "Better take out my trusty flashlight. OMG A ZOMBIE!"

    "Better get out my gun."

    "Hey where'd he go?"

    "Trusty flashlight, you're always there for me!"

    "OMG ZOMBIE IN FRONT OF MY FACE!"

    Followed by:

    "Ooh ammo!"

    And then a door or a wall or a hidden panel opens up, and some zombies shuffle out menacingly. Of course, you can't see them since you didn't have your flashlight out.

    Doom3 was ok the first time but I cant be bothered to play through it a 2nd time.

    The game was pretty scary but I was so sick of the flashlight thing. The whole game is just finding a monster with the flashlight then bring up a weapon and shoot into the darkness til you see the monster burn up in a redish color then flash light again.


    What I dont understand is in that big so highly advanced research facility there isnt a single roll of duct tape so you can strap that flashlight to your gun.

    Wait, you're telling me the entire game is just a set of different levels in the dark in which I have to turn on my flashlight to find a monster. And upon finding a monster, I need to turn off my light, put it away, take out my gun, load it, and shoot the monster? And then rinse and repeat?!

    its more like [hit flash light key] *spot monster* [make sure monster is in the crosshair] [press a weapon key 1-9] [open fire til you see the monster die] Possibly switch to flash light if you lose the monster but thats not normal because the monster is usualy busy clawing your face making your character turn to the left and right, up and down, everytime he is damaged making it hard to hit that imp thats making kebab out of your face.

    But yeah thats pretty much the whole game. Except the game is one long level like half life and really hard and the weapons have really really poor sound effects and look really bad (the pistol has a wood handle and the shotgun is from 1970-80) and the assault rifle sounds like someone is droping peas on a beer can.

    Also when you come into hell its darker than ever but you dont have your flash light with you.

    By the way when is the expansion released?

    If you're going to get Doom 3, make sure you have a high end system. And also be prepared to not run anything else while you're playing it as it seriously consumes system resources. I bought it the week it came out, installed it, played for about 30 minutes then uninstalled it because my system couldn't handle it. The graphics are beautiful and it has a decent jump factor to it as stuff is always flying at you from nowhere. The whole flashlight switch thing got really old, really fast. You'd think after all this time they'd develop a weapon with a light on it, or at least give you a roll of duct tape. :rolleyes:

    But the point is, we shouldn't have to download a mod in order to play a retail release of a game.

    Yeah good point, but what I'm saying is instead of complaining about it,find a solution to your problem and the duct tape mod would be a solution to their problems.

    And I'm sure it's not that hard to install so not like that would be a problem.

    the flashlight serves its purpose perfectly. every time i saw a normal human i used it to beat them in the head.

    then i usually had to restart from my last save, but whatever.
