Which do you think I should get?

I was thinking, Doom 3 is cheaper on the PC, and they have the new expansion for it. But that co-op on XBL is so damn tempting.

Then there is SC: CT, definitely would get this for Xbox vs. the PC. The co-op is sounding sweet.

So actually my question is really two, which should I get first, and PC or Xbox??

If your PC can run it, I'd say get Doom 3 for the PC only. I'm doing the same, and picking up my copy of Chaos Theory for the Xbox tomorrow (or today, if I'm lucky).

I'm not a big fan of Doom 3. If you want a great first person shooter for the PC get Far Cry... That game is sweet.

Doom 3 was actually scary for about 30 seconds... then after 30 minutes it got reallllly repetative. Its more of the same over and over and over... the monsters get harder to kill but over all its pretty lame. Dont get me wrong, the graphics are sweet (almost as good as Far Cry) but thats not enough.

SC: CT. DOOM 3 is a fun game, but suffers from repatition and lackluster online play. The (PC) game is beautiful no doubt, but SC:CT will last you much longer. I beat D3 in about 10-12 hours havn't played it since.

Id say SC if you already got the PC one, but I'm getting both so I'm bias :P

Now that I own both, get Splinter Cell. It'll last you longer.

Well, i just have a chance to play Doom 3 on Xbox, yea, just got a copy of it before the release. The graphics isn't that bad like those screens floating around the web, is look sharp and great like the PC version. By the way, get Splinter Cell if you already have Doom 3 on PC or else, get both of them.

SCCT is fun but the COOP is kinda short but luckily there are lotsa difficulties and so many ways to do everything. Versus mode is definatley a blast though.
My plan is to just buy both and if i really start to love doom3 alot over the other or if i just hate doom3 i will sell the leftover one. Hey mabye you can buy it from me!

Ehh, I say Far Cry is definitely up there with Doom3 and HL2, graphically. But Doom 3 bump maps the crap out of everything.


Anyway, Doom3 wasn't all that great on PC. The addition of a coop mode, and few other changes might merit a revisit, which is a rental. I'm sold on SC:CT, after playing both the solo demo on PC and Xbox, as well as the multiplayer beta for PC.

Now that my debit card works, I just grabbed SC:CT. See you laginas on live.

Well I got SC: CT a couple days ago, and now I'm very interested in the Doom 3 collectors edition. I mean the throwback games, that is pretty sweet.

having played Doom on PC and CT on Xbox, i'd say get CT...Doom 3 has an amazing singleplayer and a decent multiplayer, CT has an amazing singleplayer and an amazing multiplayer.
get chaos theory, you won't regret it.

I'm going to get one and I think I'm leaning towards SC:CT.

Chaos Theory, am about halfway in it now (just played singleplayer) and prefer it much more than PAndora Tomorrow, rented Doom 3 today and quickly put CT back in, not nearly as fun...

i'm in the same situation. i have until tuesday to return CT to trade it in for doom 3. i just hope IGN or gamespot reviews it before tuesday, because thats what im going to base it off of (not hte score, the review)

:rolleyes: Dont get me started on Half Life 2... Talk about linier... and I would still dissagree... Far Cry rocks in the game and in the graphics...

I'm getting both, but I would get SC if I could only afford one.

I got Doom 3 today. SC multiplayer is probably more fun. The two games are entirely different. SC is all stealth stuff and Doom 3 is just like BLOW DA **** UP. Depends on what type of game you like better.

I got a presell of Doom 3 on ebay awhile back....hopefully it will come in a few days...I was getting so anxious to play it though that I just decided to get SC CT while I was waiting...haven't popped it in yet since I also bought Pandora Tomorrow which I have yet to play..I'll probably play that to the end before I play CT ..unless one of my friends gets CT and I'll play online with him.

if your looking for a decent xbox coop game, i'd go with doom 3, just dont expect it to be like the pc version. trust me. (entire sections have been cutout for the xbox version)

Ok, I now officially own both games. So I will be able to tell people which has the better co op soon.

If you get co-op for XBL, the co-op is only 3-5 hours long.. thats it. Me and my buddy beat it in a day... I would say get SC.

Umm, look at the post above. I own both. I made my decision, spend all my money lol.

I still have to buy UC2 this month...probably gonna trade Brothers in Arms or RE4 for that...

BTW, has anyone realized all the new SC fanboys and Doom 3 fanboys? They all feel like their game is the best and the other sucks. Whatever happening to not being cheap, and buying both?

Well I got both now and I can say I have enjoyed both equally. I started off both games on the hardest levels so I could get the most out of them, and both games are fantastic. Like I said earlier, if you can, get both. If not, then I suggest SC: CT, because unfortunately it is better. Don't get me wrong about Doom tho. It has a very solid solo campaign.
