Crikey, 94%? That's on par with what HL1 recieved a few years back- 96% was it? Then again, the rating system changes quite a lot every year or so.

You've waited years. Now the wait is over.
That can be said again :D I plan on picking it up, though game play might be...I really need to upgrade my comp. Just need to get the money ready.

When I was down at EB, they had the boxes on the shelf already (empty though) as they were taking pre-orders. I hadn't really picked it up, so can't confirm, though the guy said for specs, it would require:

- 1.6 GHz CPU
- 384 MB RAM
- GeForce 3 gfx card

No doubt, the recommendations will be higher, if those are listed minimum requirements. I do expect my AXP 1900+ (1.6 GHz AXP) will hold things back, though I'll try it out...

I have:

P4 3.2 GHz Canterwood
2 Gigs of Corsair PC3200 DDR
GeforceFX 5950 Ultra 256

I can play FarCry on High settings but Very High brings the game down to chopsville. I imagine that Doom III will run reasonably well at 1024x768 in High mode. That is to say it F*&^%ing well better!

they said in another thread here that to play with the best graphics, you need a card with 512MB of memory.

I'm not looking forward to Doom 3. i actually do think it will suck and i AM serious. looks like way too much flashlight usage.

been playin this afternoon, very dark & atmospheric indeed, almost crapped myself when first zombie things appeared, quite hard some bits when u have too switch between torch and gun cos it is just pitch black:p

why didnt they have shotguns with torches attached:p much easier...

it is beuatiful gfx, and nice with sound in 5.1... but boring as hell after an hour...

might play some more tomorrow

Nice 5.1 sound, indeed. It's not the gamegasm I wanted, but it's not too shabby. The monster placement is perfect for making your jump, and the game feels very polished. Oh, and I laughed when I heard the main character referred to as the ranking "F.N.G." Does anyone know if they use that term outside the military?

Oh yeah, and even if you don't have 512 MB of ram on your video card, you can still run the game in Ultra quality if you set your AGP aperture large enough. Looks sharp that way!

You might well be, but I guess there are others who don't play action-fest fps on their computer. To be truthful, one of the main factors is to benchmark your PC, since along with HL2 it'll at least try to push it to its limits.
