    Do not get me wrong I think it is a good game but I just lost interest for now and am sure I will eventually play through it.

    I really like the FPS games that take place in a variety of setting both indoors and outdoors and I think this is why I got bored with D3.

    Recently, HL2 and Far Cry really spoiled me but hey, those games show what I am looking for in a FPS.

    Got it at Best Buy on sale $29.99 very similar to Doom 3, which I like. Loaded it up played a couple levels (it's good). I will rest from it though as I just finished D3 this week.

    I'm finally tackling HL2 (very good so far).

    I'm looking forward to Quake 4 more than any though.

    This is all from a 10 page article in PCGamer. 10 Pages of content. More like a paragraph of usefull information and 9 pages of nothing new screen shots and filler. Anyways, here ya go.

    *Game focus on singleplayer.
    *Quake 4 takes place just hours after Quake 2 ending.

    *Tim Willits is a behind the scenes super-visor of Quake 4. This is a bad thing. Either he ****ed up on Doom 3, or I don't like survivor horror games. And I am a System Shock 2 freak. If you thought D3 was scary, get System Shock 2. You'll wet yourself.

    *Uses a version of the Doom 3 engine that has lighting and texturing tweaks.
    *Your character is a "vital part of the war effort".
    *Usually in the company of other marines (think CoD).
    *Huge outdoor areas.
    *More GORY than Doom3. Woot.
    *Considers it self different from Doom 3 because it's a "Over the top action game" instead of a "Survival horror game".
    *Features flying vehicles.
    *Gunner, Gladiator, Strogg Marine are back, with varations of each.
    *Will have swearing (something Doom 3 lacked).
    *Features "Hovertank".
    *Hovertank is 100% pilotable.
    *Quote: "You'll be fighting, alone, with an army, indoors, outdoors, in vehicles, you name it."
    *Quote: We want this game to feel like an action movie."
    *NEW AI, the AI is supposed to be very smart, taticly using terrain and firing positions. Quote: "Raven is paying a lot of attention to AI routines and situational level desing in Quake 4".
    *Levels disigned with specific enemies in mind.
    *Multiplayer is a 100% copy of Quake 3. It will play exactly the same. Will have more than 4 players. Will feature DM and CTF.

    I started playing HL2 before I finished it - I think that was the deciding factor.

    Far Cry and CoR have impressed me a lot more than D3, especially the latter (since it has a similar look but with far better gameplay).

    They fix the sound stuttering bug yet?

    I might have to beat that for a 3rd time...

    Yep, I think so. My stuttering went away completely after a Steam update.

    For some reason, I seemed to get more stuttering in HL2 (mostly picture, no sound issue) with the 5.xx Cats.

    I got quickly bored by Doom3 also (before playing HL2, but after playing FarCry), but it's definately a good game for a specific niche and IMO it is nowhere near the flop some people tell it is. Still, it is fun to play with the lights off and sound cranked up

    I think HL2 easily surpasses Doom 3 in terms of graphics, gameplay, level design, variety and weapons. Overall it is clearly the better game.

    But for sheer atmosphere, Doom 3 takes some beating. Playing some of the last few levels in the dark on my own was absolutely terrifying. I had to keep looking over my shoulder to make sure an imp wasn't spawning behind me

    Yeah I agree, but it's hard to tell as Doom 3 is mostly in the dark.

    Update to the Cat 5.4's, I had the same thing in HL2 with the 5.3's.

    The one thing that bugged me about D3 was too many imps and not enough pinky demons or cacodemons.

    Off to get the expansion now; must be really bored.
