Just downloaded DOOM BFG. I played the original D3 through 2 or 3 times. Looking forward to seeing this newer version. I never had any problems with the original game, even the gun/flashlight thing. I felt that made it slightly more unrealistic, but way more scary to play.
Well, I'm not bowled over by the BFG edition. Graphically it has really aged. I remembered it looking amazing, now it's merely okay. Wow. Time. Just wow. But it doesn't look bad at all. It's smooth as glass on my much newer PC that I had playing it originally. That's really neat, there. Could make it much more immersive than before despite the aged gfx. Now, I have to update my feelings on the flashlight. I don't like this new method. I wish they could have come up with a reason why you can't use it at the same time as having your gun drawn. Walking around with just a flashlight and having to switch to a gun in the dark was all kinds of scary. I'd love it if you almost had to wack things with the flash to give you time to get your gun ready... But all bitching aside, I'll enjoy this. And the addon (which I believe I only played through once) and the new levels.
For people with problems: This wouldn't load up probably. Loading screen with narration, this is crashed "Doom has stopped responding... blah blah blah). I found that I could load a multiplayer game (actually get into the level and move around), then close that and load the campaign and it worked perfect. No crashed after a short 20 mins of play. There are other fixes in the steam forums, but this one worked for me.
Looking forward to playing doom again.
