E3 2004 Preview
Published on May 13, 2004 By mittens In Action
Another one of my previews has been posted over at FileFront, this time it's on the Xbox version of Doom 3. Here's a snippet:


Another thing that’s quickly apparent in the Xbox version is that this game looks amazing for an Xbox game. It features a lot of the same graphical features of the PC, though, as you’d expect, it’s not nearly as pretty as the PC version. The levels aren’t quite as big, and the model and texture qualities aren’t quite as good; but still, for an Xbox game, it looks damn amazing. And you’ll be able to blast through the creepy-as-hell demon forces at a solid 30 frames per second.

Ya know, while both are FPS, and while Halo 2 is the Xbox FPS flagship, I don't think Doom 3 really has to "beat" Halo 2. They're very different games, that's for damn sure. Really, Doom 3 doesn't hold to the standard FPS mechanics... it's just as much Survival/Horror as FPS, as far as I'm concerned... there is a whole group of people that Doom 3 will appeal to, many of which could probably care less about Halo 2.

I'm VERY curious how Doom 3 will play in coop. Ya, coop is generally as good as it gets, but Doom 3... that's EXACTLY the kind of game that you WANT to play alone! You can't have someone watching your back in Doom 3... defeats the point! Plus, Doom 3 environments are crammed for ONE person, much less two. Guess I'll find out soon enough.

Aye, that's what went through my mind. It's almost like playing through Silent Hill with another person - not quite the same.
