Wow, I just got this game from a friend. And even though I only have a 64MB video card, the graphics are simply amazing. Even at their lowest settings (the best I can run) the game is beautiful.

I would suggest that if you want to play this game, do it with a video card of no less than 128MB and made by either ATI or nVidea. Game play will be so much better.

Back to the game.

Have it, had to hex edit the doom3.exe to even get the thing to run. riddled with minor annoying bugs.

I'd give it a 3 out of 10.

Damn carmack for trying to lock out windows 9X users!! Then instead of fixing the "real" bugs he releases a patch that disables it once again in winblows 9X. I really hate ID and the carmack brothers now. Butch of *!

The best part about it was Hell. I loved going through hell. There is also another file you need to download if you want the detail REALLY high. The game looked SO much better after that file was added.

Apparently the carmacks decided that blocking out win 9X users wasnt enough and disabled all of the features as well for some cards/ computer setups. There are ways to turn the features back on, and boy is it worth it!

Glad I only paid $25.00 for it.
