Episode Summary

Doom 3, Resurrection for Evil, FlatOut and more!
On tonight's episode of X-Play, we review Doom 3 for the Xbox. Throughout the long, long development of Doom 3, questions were raised as to whether the humble Xbox would be able to handle the game in all its graphical glory. But it turns out that developer Vicarious Visions has got some powerful mojo. It's been able to port over Doom 3 more or less in tact and includes a multiplayer co-op mode. But we know the score. We know what you are all wondering. How does the Xbox version of Doom 3 stack up against the PC version?

You’d think that after all the trouble you went through closing the gates of hell in Doom 3, they’d have a courtesy to stay shut. Then again, without some gaping maw leading straight to the netherworld, we wouldn’t get to play Doom 3: Resurrection of Evil. And that means no double-barreled shotgun. And a world without a double-barreled shotgun is a very sad and lonely place indeed.

There’s nothing more aggravating than being stuck in traffic after a hard day’s work, except perhaps getting a speeding ticket for trying to make up for lost time. Fortunately for us, video games give us a chance to escape the mundane, a license to do the things we could not normally do in real life without suffering serious consequences. FlatOut is a game that encourages you to let off some steam and to channel that road rage into something constructive. It’s a demolition racing game where the goal of finishing first is often secondary to ramming the fenders off your competition.moreless
