This game is a real spine shaker!
Doom 3 is probably one of the best of the legendary horror and FPS game titles that were ever created and rightfully so as they creep you out in so many ways that it takes a real achieving feeling inside you when you manage to complete it.
Not many people can do that, you know!
So the setting of this absurdly horrific and terror inducing game is that some kind of teleportation experiments are going inside a space station in space (Tee Hee) and then suddenly chemical X gets dunked into it, wait, sorry, wrong script!
No the experiment back fires and the portals that were secured to study well before use, they bring forth demons and many seriously sick monstrosities from the other dimensions.
Which, like that dickhead new neighbor of yours, instantly start to shit the whole place out, soon it seems that everyone is killed and/or devoured.
One unnamed space marine, the player character (Let’s call him Buck here ok?) so Buck has to search along the structure all alone in the space station to look for a way to end those monsters and in his way to do so many hardships follow!
The game is a true FPS Survival Horror definition and it just squeezes the shit out of your sanity and good night sleeps.
The game, although pure and intense action based FPS horror and vomit inducer is also heavily driven by story and NPC conversation and expositions.
So in the end it is not your mindless reckless button happy shooting frenzy but something much more than that entirely!
The game has loads of seriously damaging and he ass weapons, all of them with their pros and cons, weapons like shotguns that are extremely powerful but take too much of loading and that is where the injuries could take place, so you gotta keep this simple details inside your strategies as well.
Then there are submachine guns, plasma guns, rocket launchers and what not, you can carry two weapons on you and explosives as well.
The enemies are either infected humans (zombies) or demons (shitbrick purveyors) and as if their faces and attacks weren’t bitch enough the whole atmosphere and the subtle horror inductions are also enemies to your good night’s sleep, we tell you.
When you hear over the radio the shrieks of the guy who just a while ago was telling you about his country home while you yourself seem to be watched, that stuff gets in you head man!
And that is why this whole game experience is …phew…too awesome to miss guys!
