DOOM is what you see is what you get. Great gfx for 2004, solid linear shooter and it wasn't a short game like every singleplayer FPS these days.

Now Rage was a disappointment, and I expect they went back to the drawing board with Doom 4 after modelling it heavily on Rage tech and mechanics. I get the feeling if Doom 4 went ahead as originally intended it would make Doom 3 look like a classic gem.

RAGE was indeed a complete disappointment, and I completely agree re: Doom 4. But you could definitely argue that Doom 3 is already a classic gem in its own right. The BFG Edition just didn't seem to cut the mustard for me, sadly. Especially for a player who owns the original Doom trilogy collector's set and a copy of Doom 3.
