As a huge DooM fan, I hope they bring back what you said and some of the strange secrets, hidden places/elevators and strange rooms/walls, even entire levels that serve no realistic or logical purpose but to make for a wild monster battle. I felt that although DooM3 created and captured that isolated scary atmosphere (playing in the dark at night with surround sound a must), the environment tended to try and maintain a kind of space movie realism which the originals didn't bother with.

I played Classic DooM a little while back and it was a blast to run through the first 9 old maps updated with DooM3's engine & graphics.

Looking forward to hearing how the Darl Mod works out.
Heh heh ya I did the same. It's a great mod! Oh yes Dark Mod... that will be cool too. Only problem with good mods they take so bloody long to release lol.

I rather enjoyed doom 3 and didn't understand all the hate. The only complaint I had was like most everyone else's gripe about not having a flashlight on the weapons. Modding is also quite easy with basically zipped text files. You can tweak the difficulty any which way you like.

Back in the day, I bought a ATI X800PRO AGP when they came out... $600 from NCIX...OUCH! In 2004 (Doom3 came out a few days before I think). I had a A64 3400+/1gig/ASUS MOBO back then.

Anyway, great game that was, but I enjoyed it a lot more with a Dual-Core/8800GTS 640mb to enable ULTRA mode. I even bought "Resurection of evil", the expansion pack.

Now, I just bought Aliens vs Predators a few days ago and I find it's pretty DOOM-like in darkness-speed and "ammo count".
Ok, it's not as scary, because DOOM3 was the nicest game out there graphics wize then.

But I find that AvP, when swarms of nasty xenomorphs are crawling towards you, is a good reminder of the DOOM3 experience.
My 2 cents...

Such a great game. I actually finished the expansion not too long ago.
When I upgrade my monitor, I might have to play through the original once again.

The only thing that annoyed me, well pissed me off, is the fact i couldnt use a flashlight and a weapon at the same time. Its in the future, they've got the technology, yet they can't have any of their guns with flashlights on it or Einstein marine can't use 1 handed weapons with a flashlight in the other.

I think it was intentional to add to the scary environment but there are plenty of mods to add the light to your weapon.

I finally finished the expansion as well as the original. It became very tedious very quickly but certainly had it's moments.

Was fun.

Now I'm going to load Half Life 2 to help bring me back to days of the golden era
