    Default Doom III vs. Halo 2

    Hopefully, Doom III will be on Xbox- and I thought it would be interesting to see what everyone's opinion is on the next heavyweight FPS games.

    Doom III's technology is completely new- so it by far has the upperhand graphically and atmospherically.

    Halo 2 will (most likely) be a refurbished rendition of the Halo engine...not all in itself bad- considering the wait for Halo 2 will be considerably shorter than that of its predecessor.

    Gameplay wise, Doom III will be more of a moody- dark, paced horror movie

    Halo 2 will obviously be an enlargement on the frantic gameplay of Halo: Combat evolved

    My pick is Doom III over Halo 2 by a considerable margin, but I'll be glad to hear any other differing opinions!

    i'd much rather have Halo 2, i think the addition of new maps and weapons will be just enough to get me hooked all over again.......

    but there is news that perfect dark is in the works, and RARE can make a kick a$$ fps..............

    Silvertrace.. I like your sig but doesnt yoda say: Begun this cold war has" and you have it mixed up! So it would be right if you did "Begun this councel war has" Just wanted to tell you!, or if you don tlike my idea, just ignore me!

    I'm really looking forward to Doom III, but nothing has been mentioned about multiplayer support or vehicles for it. So I gotta go with Halo 2, plus I realllly wanna drive a longsword (for those of you who dont know what tha tis it's that black stealth bomber kinda ship Master Chief left halo in)

    Alien Halo 2...

    The main reason I am excited more about Halo 2 (besides the fact that it kicks @$$), is that to play Doom 3 I am going to have to upgrade my video card in my PC...not fun

    Ya.. or you know.. buy it on Xbox.

    I'm actually hyped about both games just as much. I love games with very involved stories and DoomIII is focusing heavily on that aspect. Halo 2 will hopefully follow on Halo and deliver a great sci-fi story. So I didn't put anything on the poll as I am looking forward to both with equal anticipation

    Gameplay wise, i think Halo 2 will be the winner. I just get more enjoyment outta playing Halo then i did any of the Dooms...

    BUT...

    Trent Reznor IS doing the soundtrack for Doom III... i can only imagine how dark and evil this game will really be....

    i can't wait for both of em...

    A brand new doom people.................
    Im gonna have to vote DOOMIII, Because ID has been in the game longer then bungie when it comes to FPS.

    But then again Halo was the greatest FPS to grace a console. Im torn so will not vote for either.

    Uhhh actually John Romero(SP?) was on the ID team but he left to make diakatana. (IDs big dogs used to be Carmanck + romero)

    ID is responsible for the QUAKE3 Engine. Without ID you would have no Jedi knight 2, Metal of honor etc......

    Yeah but my point is their games really sucked as of lately. Then again were the doom games really that creative and interesting? I beat doom again about a year ago and wondered why I was interested in it at all. Not the technology or anything but it's just not interesting, same thing over and over and over. And I do blame ID for the Quake3 Engine, I hate the engine, it sucks. I prefer the UT engine.

    Well doom was amazing for the time. While most kids were playing street fighter i was playing Co-op Doom via 14.4 modem. We also got into modding and dehacked. I agree UT is a sweet game to. I was actually in a great clan for the PG ladder. But you have to give ID credit for creating the FPS.

    And how could you say the Quake3 engine sucks? Many hard-core UT players will admit that the quake3 engine is more powerful.

    Damm right, doom kicked ass and i can only hope that doom 3 lives up to the hype. ID get big respect for kicking off FPS. In fact didn't they create wolfenstein 3d back in the day, it is the original FPS.

    I'd just seen a long video about DIII on Gamespot. For now, I'm hyped up about it so I'll vote Doom3. When I see a video of HALO 2 I'll let you know if my mind has changed. SO UNTIL THEN.
