I must be the only person on this board that's underwhelmed by this title -- I'd like to see some original games take advantage of live instead of another PC port.

Yeah, the crypt's and the factory were pretty dark but, that's because of the inherent "atmosphere" of the level, I believe.

Some games are like this. The Thief series required me to play only at night, in my darkened computer room.

Now that I think about it, the port of Doom/DoomII that came out when the Playstation (1) was brand new, had some levels that were so damn dark that they were kinda hard to see even sitting in a dark room.
Better to have a gun and not need it, than to need a gun and not have it.

I can't beat the fire guy in the one demo level:b

My one question/reservation is that the demo had reload set to pressing the stick and I can never set anything to that as I press down too hard all the time. In ever fight I am constantly reloading my weapon and crouching/standing upPosted Image Does not make for good tactics.

Anyone know if you can change controls?

Didn't OXM carry a review of the full game along with the demo in their issue? If so, how was the review?

I hadn't heard that the new version will come with Wolf3D. Awesome! I believe that was the first FPS I ever played. Killing Nazis never gets old.
