Doom 3: BFG Edition (2012): A Comprehensive Review


Doom 3: BFG Edition is a remastered version of the critically acclaimed 2004 first-person shooter Doom 3. Developed by id Software and published by Bethesda Softworks, the BFG Edition was released in 2012 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. The game features enhanced graphics, improved audio, and new content, making it the definitive version of Doom 3.


Doom 3: BFG Edition is a first-person shooter set in a dark and oppressive science fiction world. Players take on the role of a lone marine who must fight their way through hordes of demonic creatures to survive. The game features a variety of weapons, including the iconic shotgun, plasma rifle, and rocket launcher. Players must also use their wits to solve puzzles and navigate the treacherous environments.

The BFG Edition introduces several new features to the game, including a checkpoint save system, support for 3D displays and HMDs, and the ability to use the flashlight while holding a weapon. These additions make the game more accessible and enjoyable for modern players.

Graphics and Audio

The BFG Edition features significantly enhanced graphics over the original Doom 3. The textures are sharper, the lighting is more realistic, and the models are more detailed. The game also runs at a higher resolution and frame rate, resulting in a smoother and more immersive experience.

The audio in the BFG Edition has also been improved. The sound effects are more realistic and immersive, and the music is more atmospheric and haunting. The game also features a new voice cast, which delivers excellent performances.

New Content

The BFG Edition includes all of the content from the original Doom 3, as well as two new single-player expansions: Resurrection of Evil and The Lost Mission. Resurrection of Evil is a direct sequel to Doom 3, and it features new levels, enemies, and weapons. The Lost Mission is a prequel to Doom 3, and it sheds new light on the events of the original game.

In addition to the new single-player content, the BFG Edition also includes copies of the original Doom (the Ultimate Doom edition with the add-on fourth episode, “Thy Flesh Consumed”), and Doom II with the expansion No Rest for the Living. These classic games have been updated with modern graphics and controls, making them more accessible and enjoyable for modern players.


Doom 3: BFG Edition is the definitive version of Doom 3. The enhanced graphics, improved audio, and new content make this a must-play for fans of the original game and newcomers alike. Whether you’re a seasoned Doom veteran or a first-time player, you’re sure to enjoy this classic shooter.
