This long-anticipated first-person shooter certainly was worth the delay, as the demo proves. Though the gameplay of endless swarms of undead creatures is nothing original, the presentation is superb, and the demo is generous in scope. Some gamers might be disappointed with some of the gimmicks, but it's hard to complain about the explosive action, amazing graphics and sound, and expansive environment. Three levels of difficulty also make the experience available for all gaming abilities.

You play a new recruit of the Union Aerospace Corporation facility on Mars, on special assignment to find a missing scientist. Strange events at the UAC facility reach the expected climax, and the massive blasting begins. The demo isn't terribly long, but it does introduce a variety of available weapons and equipment, including the essential PDA that stores access keys, video recordings, and other information. Much of the tension springs from the dark environments in which you can hold only your flashlight or a weapon, not both. The somewhat arbitrary limitation creates some great unexpected jolts. From the demo, Doom 3 looks like a slicker, faster, and scarier remake of the original, and that's not a bad thing at all.
