    Weaponizing demons. For a brighter Tomorrow

    Doom 3 is a departure from the original Doom idea. Gone are the crazy music riffs, circle strafing demon dance, arenas and labyrinthine levels of h e l l . Say hello to story cinematic, voice acting, small claustrophobic levels with panic inducing lighting and creepy sounds. The game is basically Event Horizon on Mars...more horror and less crazy action. This version also includes the original Doom and Doom 2, and they play excellent with a controller. Great emulation, 60fps (for the most part), no screen tearing, a whole lotta scares and Cyber Demons to blow up. Oh yeah, and the marines finally realized they can attach a flashlight to their weapons... or in this case to their chest plate. Whatever, the game makes more sense now. I'll leave you with this amazing quote from George something or other: "Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change or turn on a flashlight cannot see anything." Powerful stuff.

    A contentious entry into a classic franchise

    The run and gun nature of the originals is gone, but a foreboding atmosphere that makes you dread every next step has taken its place. The monster closets opening behind you can feel cheap at times, but the game generally does a great job balancing an action-heavy FPS with the more methodical feel of a light survival horror corridor crawler. This is the package to get if you have any interest. Aside from including the expansion to Doom 3, it includes the original Doom 1 and 2 as well. Compared to the original Doom 3, the BFG edition does include changes like better graphics, and more importantly, the ability to hold a flashlight and a gun at the same time. Some might prefer this, but I actually preferred the original feeling of having to choose between light and a way to defend yourself.

    I already owned the old Xbox version of Doom 3, but this version runs on both my 360 and my One. Plus it comes with the original version of Doom (all 4 episodes) and Doom 2, both of which I loved to play. So far, all 3 versions play pretty well, and Doom starts off with things being pretty calm, so I can figure out how to work the controller! I'm old and grew up with PC gaming, so my dexterity with modern controllers is pretty bad...the original games are helping me overcome that!

    Rebought this to relive the Nightmare that is Doom 3. havent played this game in 12years & with the new partnership ID Software has with Bethesda & their new ID Tech 5 Engine this is a must own HD Remastered. Relive the Nightmare, fight Demons, play an alternate chapter, & fight alongside others in Online Multiplayer assuming there are others who play this online & replay where it all began with Original Doom & Doom 2 also remastered with better picture & sound. Overall Doom 3 BFG Edition gets an 9 out of 10.

    I've been looking for this game for quite sometime, Once I finally got it I realized it's the newer print. The label now says "Backwards Compatibility) with the Xbox 360 and Xbox One logo on the box. It's a pretty good game, Doom is a game that's mainly gunplay, just shoot and kick butt and it's very violent and gory, Of course according to the ESRB rating it's Rated M, to simply put it, it's not a kid friendly game at all.

    I played doom 3 on my original Xbox; looked and played decent, but not close to gaming PC quality. I purchased the BFG 1080P HD version for PS3 on sale, but didn't get around to playing. Now, that it is backwards compatible on XBox One, I purchased the Xbox 360 BFG 1080 HD version, just to play with faster load times and using my Xbox One console/controller. Looks and plays fantastic,- much preferred over PS3 tiny hand-cramping controller.

    3 In One, but not all classic...

    I love the original doom and the 2016 remake but I had never played doom 2 or 3 before. I found this on sale and noticed it has the first three games in the doom series, and the 3rd was an "ultimate edition" that made improvements to the original version. Well, I'm not very impressed by doom 3. I found it boring. But if you are looking for a means to play the first two games they are both included and as fun as ever!

    A Collection of Classics and also Doom 3

    With the improvements made to this collection, Doom 3 fares better than its original release, despite still having some shortcomings about it. it's a bit of an odd duck out of the franchise now, especially with how the 2016 incarnation turned out, but it's still very much worth playing, Plus, you get the original two games with this one, and that alone should be worth the price of entry on this edition.

    I used to own this game back when I had a 360, and was super excited when I found it at best buy- and is backwards compatible. Such a great, different doom experience. While the newer doom focuses on an action-packed feel- this one has more of a horror-action experience. Awesome game!

    I had to buy this game, due to lack of compatibility with original doom 3 with newer windows OS (win 10). So instead of buying it for PC I choose xbox 360 so I can save some gb on my hdd. To bad I cannont use a keyboard on xbox. Graphics are good, do not expect any upgrade on X360 version, its like playing the original doom 3 on PC with a high end card.

    My son and I played the game like we did many years ago except then was on a computer. Graphics were only little better then before but felt good playing the grandfather of all these type games!!! If you never played original Doom this may not be game for you as graphics nothing like they are now. Myself, I will play it again in few months.

    I was excited to find this since I played it on an older system as a kid. The graphics on the BFG version are awesome! The price was great since the disc includes Doom 1,2, & 3. The only downside is that once the BFG version is downloaded you can no longer play the older versions included on the disc without uninstalling BFG.

    I enjoyed this game but it is my least favorite of all the Doom games. This game tries to be a mix of survival horror and FPS. Sometimes it works other times.. not so much. Overall it is a solid game with hours of gameplay that any Doom fan would enjoy Plus it comes with DOOM 1 & 2 and it works on Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

    I've always enjoyed playing DOOM since the original (yes I'm old). I had to buy this to bring back some memories of the old days. It's like I'm back in the day playing this and having no girlfriend what a life that was (oh crap here comes the ol ball and chain)......

    Nice 3D entry for one of the OG's. DOOM helped start the video game revolution (especially the 3D). I enjoyed the tight corridors and excellent audio which both helped to give a few jumps while playing at night, in the dark, trapped in the closet (R.K.) with some skeletons. Great visceral weapon feel.

    I never got to Dooms 2 and 3. I'vé had Doom 1 before. I didn't even get thru the first room of his version. Pushed button and dash doesn't get to an open door. I get there before the closing door sound, but the door isn't open. 2nd...There is no longer a jump command or look up/down command.

    The Doom games have always been great, and this one is no exception. this game will give you all you look for in a shooter and keep your nerves up with all the aliens. just try not to get caught in the fire and beat as many as you can

    I remember playing the very first dos doom on pc. lots of great childhood memories there. They of course remastered it, but only the controls, not the game play. Is' stayed true to the original and even has both Doom 1&2 plus the resurrection as well as bonus mission.
