Doom’s legacy as one of the pillars of the first-person shooter genre is unquestionably secured as it approaches its twentieth anniversary. Few games can claim to be so influential, and it comes as no surprise in the HD era there’s a new retail release commemorating the occasion. Doom 3 is an entirely different story. It isn’t such a fondly-remembered title, but instead quickly divided gamers between the camps that loved its dark, claustrophobic atmosphere and those that hated dealing with the darn flashlight. This edition isn’t going to change any of that.
