Im one of the worlds biggest Doom fans. Its in my Top 10 and sometimes consider my #1 all time.

But Im not sure why this is even being released and for this pricetag.

I have the old Xbox steelbook edition which comes with the old dooms as well.

I dont understand how hard it is for them to put out Final Doom as well. I know Final Doom was simply a collection of user levels but it was solid. Doom 64 is the only other real Doom since it was still in sprite form and kept true to the original no linear nature.

Doom 3 was a nice game. But it started, or was at least a part of the new linear FPS movement which sadly still exists today. Didnt have the same exploration as old Dooms or FPS. But it had tons of atmosphere. I dont get the flashlight issues. I thought it added to the game. And after a while you mastered it and it was rewarding.

Im assuming the real reasons this even got a a full packaged release is because of the 3D. I have a really nice 3D TV. Hardly even use the 3d but I Think for sure Ill try it with this.

But even as a huge Doom fan I might wait a month and see it drop. I already have all the Dooms on Live anyhow.

No co-op put this on the waiting for a price drop list. I never got to play RoE online with my friends because they didn't have it. Did play Doom 3 co-op online though and I loved it. Was hoping this would fill the gap of not being able to play Doom 3 on Xbox Live anymore without going through loopholes.

Because Zenimax/Bethesda spent a grabillionzillion dollerydoos on id and Rage kinda screwed the pooch, so they're finding easy ways to get blood from a stone while waiting for Doom 4. 'Rereleasing' Quake 4 and Doom 1 were quick ways to get a Buck, and Doom 3 is basically the only I'd property that they haven't done something with in the last generation likely to bring in more than spent updating...

Oh when they say Doom 1 and 2 are included they're not kidding - D3 is only 600gs and the other two 200 each still

I don't think I will ever understand this logic. "I admit this isn't really a deal, probably a fluke, and no one will really care, but I'm going to post it."

In any case, maybe I'm confusing Walmart with another retailer, but I feel like I've heard other games that were out on the shelves at WM before street date but simply wouldn't ring up at the register.


The real question is if you can even buy it. I saw the Killzone Collection on the rack at a BestBuy, the the system rejected me.

so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

I had this pre-ordered at Newegg when they had the $10 off a $40 game. After reading this thread, I decided to cancel the pre-order and wait for the inevitable price drops to come in the months ahead. I was really looking forward to playing XBL co-op with friends, but they axed that mode. I already own Doom 1 and 2 on XBLA, and played Doom 3 and RoE on the original Xbox. Bottom line, I will wait until I can get the game for $20 or less. Sad now, happy later (delayed gratification).

I'm pretty interested in this so I might grab it next week. $40 is reasonable for it IMO.

Mine's been pre-ordered through Amazon. Can't wait to play Doom 1, 2, and 3 on my PS3. This was one game I didn't need to wait for a deal on. The price is justified and I want the publisher/developer to know that I support this price point with all that's being lincuded.

Does this version of Doom 3 still force you to switch between the flashlight and the gun, or did they just take the mods from the PC game and let you have both at the same time?

This was the reason I never beat Doom 3 and didn't play it much outside of the first 2 hours or so of the campaign.

OMGWTFBBQ, people will pay money for this?

I ask myself this very question every time I see a game release and then less than 3-6 months later there's as much DLC content or physical add-ons released for it as the entire game itself and people are still willing to buy the mf'n shit for $10-15 or whatever a pop.

Then again, I shouldn't even say this, since I had GTA IV, the standalone GTA IV Episodes and now have the "Complete" edition. I did the same thing with Red Dead Redemption, where I had the standalone, the Undead Nightmare disc version and now I have the GOTY edition.

But probably the worst example of milking shit like this is either the Street Fighter series or that newly released Angry Birds compilation.

I think they said they were changing the flashlight to a chest-mounted light.

Yeah I love iD still, even though things have changed. I know Rage got mixed/good reviews but I thought it was great. At the time there was nothing that looked that good on a console. Even if you didnt like the game itself, it should have been appreciated as a piece of artwork.

I would like a release of all the Quakes as well. Of course all of these games are better on PC, but Id like a console run through.

As it stands I have to play Quake 1 on my Sega Saturn! (personally I think it was the best port)

I just cancelled my pre-order for this game...I have a sneaking suspicion that Black Friday will bring this down 10-15 bucks easily. HD remakes are great, but they drop in price real fast. Halo CE remake is a nice example of that.


I heard they removed the iron sights too for this BFG edition which I found a little disappointing...I wasn't a fan of the zoom in Doom 3.

I want to play the game in HD but I can wait till it hits $10. I bit on Rage for $43 with Newegg and in no time it was easily available for $20.

Plus I still have the XBOX and PC version.

Neat but I wish you snapped a pic. I get the feeling the game will bomb with reviewers. I may pick it up as part of my buy2g1free welcoming coupon at BBY.


Same here - So far it is looking like Dishonored, Assassin's Creed (w/ credit - hopefully it still works) and Persona 4 Arena or Doom or *something*).

I would murder for HD Quake, and maybe break limbs for a proper Quake 2 redux eheh

They got $40 out of me for Doom 3 in August 2004, never again haha

To be fair other than Gamefly/Family Video deals on used copies, when did Halo CE HD drop below $30 new, except for the KMart sale for $15 a couple of weeks back?

If its a chest mounted light I will buy this on sale/clearance as others have said. Something else to note is this comes with Doom 1/2 also, not sure if its just tokens for the XBLA games or if they're on the disk w/o individual achievements for those games.

I dont understand how hard it is for them to put out Final Doom as well. I know Final Doom was simply a collection of user levels but it was solid. Doom 64 is the only other real Doom since it was still in sprite form and kept true to the original no linear nature.


As a rabid Doom-guy (see what i did there?), I always found Final Doom's campaigns (TNT and.. Plutonia or something?) too-difficult. I loved the Master Levels though, despite being in the same-vein, development-wise. I did enjoy the new campaign for the XBLA release of Doom 2 though, and that last level, holy crap--really makes you earn that avatar award.

Doom 64 though eh? While I appreciated the effort because afterall, it was still another iteration of Doom, I always thought it was a little dumbed-down, with the re-worked enemies and atmosphere, it seemed to take away the "gruesomeness" edge of the original in favor of a more kiddish look.

My favorite port of the "true" Doom was the Ps1 version--with the new area-lighting gimmick and somewhat upgraded sprites I thought that was truly the best possible version. Oh, and the cover art for the tallbox with the 90s Space Cowboy was gold all by itself.

There are real easy ways to play all the doom games in 1080 with modern upgrades and xbox 360 controller support on your PC. Including Doom64. Look into it.

Yeah, the PS1 port is really good. One of my favorite longboxes alongside X-Com, Jumping Flash, and In the Hunt.

I wish they would offer the SNES music as an option - the SNES port of doom was hard to play, but it has by far the best music of a port of doom.

It's been on sale a few times actually. Black Friday it very well could be again, and even before then with Halo 4 coming out- it has to be below $30 soon enough. I bought it on day 1 anyways, but why not get it used though? It has all the maps on disc...

As for the flashlight issue- yep, from what I hear they did allow you to use your weapon and flashlight simultaneously in the BFG edition. The Doom 1 & 2 games are tokens as well I'm pretty certain. Holding off on it either way personally.
