Well, Doom 3 was made and marketed as a horror game versus a balls-to-the-wall actioner like Quake is. What I'll call bullshit on is the reviewer stating up front that Quake is the best at anything, let alone the best series EVAH!!! Right there, the fanboi should have been booted from the article and someone objective should... wait, I'm talking about a gaming mag.
At any rate, it's cool that the game picks up within hours of the second one ending. If they really keep the squad feel to it for the most part, then I'll be really happy. I hated in Doom 3 that I never got to hook up with any Marines and kick some demon ass. That would have ruled.
