The grandaddy is back; no, not the one with a bag of Werther's Originals and a pair of dog-eared slippers but the hip one packing shotguns, tentacles and demons instead. Enter Hell all over again then with this compilation of the genre-defining first-person-shooter series courtesy of Doom 3: BFG Edition for the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3....
The premise is all so familiar; gung-ho scientists in 2145 have been dabbling with teleportation technologies and have gone and ripped a hole in the very fabric of the universe (did they learn nothing from Gordon Freeman?), creating a gateway to Hell. Oops. BFOops in fact.
From out of it spew Mancubuses (no, not a bunch of Northerners stuffed into a National Express coach), Hell Knights and more evil than you shake a set of rosary beads at. That's where you step in, creeping down the dark corridors of a Mars military base and hunting down the foul foe that now infest the place; thankfully, all cannon fodder for your epic range of weaponry including the infamous BFG.
For this special edition, the graphics have been remastered and are now in terrifying 3D, meaning that even the likes of Persil will struggle to remove those stubborn underpants stains that have been the curse of many a Doom player over the years. Aiming to add a fresh slew of skidmarks is the inclusion of expansion pack Resurrection of Evil plus a set of seven brand demon-spanking new levels, 'The Lost Mission'. Perhaps the most important addition for Doom 3 veterans though is that those bouts of terrifying finger origami while operating the in-game flashlight of the original have been banished by fitting the previously handheld torch to your armour instead.
For completists (or for young Modern Warfare fanatics wondering what there was to fight before terrorist insurgents), the original Doom and Doom 2 are also included, further underlying why the Doom series was and remains and always will be so damn special. And not a Rock or a Dexter Fletcher in sight!
Classic first-person shooter Doom 3 gets a fresh lick of paint this week as its re-released in a special "BFG" high def edition for consoles. Ahead of its release, the Achievements for the Xbox 360 version have made their way online and reveal a lot about what you'll be expected to do.
The BFG edition contains no less than three games in one, with the original Doom 3 joined by expansion pack Resurrection of Evil and all-new bonus game The Lost Mission, which fills in the story of the ill-fated marines you're trying to find in the main game.
Completing each of the three campaigns on various difficulty settings accounts for twelve of the game's fifty Achievements, with those playing on the easiest Recruit setting getting just five Gamerscore for their effort. More points are on offer for defeating the various boss enemies throughout the three storylines, and for completing tasks such as collecting PDAs, video logs and storage lockers. Finding the various easter eggs and secret rooms hidden throughout the game will net you a few points as well.
There are plenty of other Achievements along the way, however, including one for defeating an enemy when you only have one health unit remaining. Kills with shotguns and other weapons are also on the list.
Only six of the Achievements are connected with the online modes, with 65 Gamerscore on offer for multiplayer excellence.
Doom 3 BFG Edition is out this week for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
