i've noticed the lack of personal reviews out that, and the recent thread "has anyone PLAYED Doom 3 yet" has inspired to me write a short review... Ok, so yeah I bit the bullet and went out and purchased Doom 3 for mac yesterday... knowing not to expect it to run on "ULTRA" graphics or anything. My Powerbook satisfies the absolute minimum requirement for Doom 3, except that I have 1GB of RAM. So I loaded it up. Installation was smooth (simple drag 'n drop). Then I launched it. It bounced a couple times in the dock before fading away into Doomsville. Menu Initialization took only a few seconds before the iD intro video played. the Menu then loaded and I selected New Game. being the wuss I am I selected 'Recruit' . It then proceeded to load the intro exposition videos. after that, I was fully launched into Doomsville. I started walking around. first couple steps it studdered a bit, but then it proceeded to smooth out. walking around the Mars Facility, I was seeing a constant 25fps or so. I then looked to see what settings it was on. 640x480, Low Quality. Those are the settings it automatticaly choose for my setup. I walked around some more and noticed that even though its on low settings, the game still looks beautiful... im sure its not as good as running it at 60fps on Ultra graphics, but its way more than good enough for me. When I first encountered the Doom creatures, the fps dropped down to about 20fps, and it began to studder slightly. after that it was fairly smooth. So far im able to run around and shoot the monsters without too much of a drop of in fps. I also decided to test the Multiplayer mode, which I found to be a little dull. not too many rooms out there to play in. But one good thing is the fact that its Mac - PC compatable, so I was playing with a bunch of PC users who didnt know they made Doom3 for the Mac So theres my small review. Feel free to ask any questions.
