Doom 3: VR Edition reviewed by Gabriel Moss on PSVR using a PlayStation 4 Pro.

A PSVR version of a classic as highly esteemed as id Software's Doom 3 sounds great in concept, especially compared to the faster pace of the recent Doom (2016) and Doom Eternal reboots, but this port is hurt by its stubborn adherence to the original.

  • It's great to see doom 3 vr get love and attention! Doom 3 was engineered from the get go to be vr capable but due to licensing issues vr was never completed. The BFG edition has hmd support, but no inertia measures. The PSVR port (and well-established PC mod rbdoom) are full realizations of the intended VR experience, and great steps forward for mainstream VR adoption

  • It's not motion sickness, it's simulation sickness. Jeezes, after all these years, game 'journalists' still don't know the difference.

  • Guys, please don't do any more reviews on VR games, at least on ports of old games, it's just not yours. Be journalists, not VR haters. First you put Borderlands 2 VR 3/10 (then under the wave of dissatisfaction of VR gamers you changed it to 6,8) now here - Doom 5/10 .. VR games, at least the ports of old games-this is not yours...

  • If you have a quest 2 vr, you can play doom 3 vr if you download it on Sidequest, and you will have full 360 degree movement of your head. Doom 3 was a really fun VR shooter, what made it bad was. Single button reloads. Fast paced combat (if your motion sick. Im not)

  • We get it: this reviewer is not a fan of PSVR since he considers everything "limited". Better head to the PSVR Without Parole channel for a more objective review from people who actually play VR regularly.

    Pat FerPat Fer8 hari yang lalu
  • "It's 10 hour campaign is mostly packed with fast paced combat." People buy Doom FOR the fast paced combat. That's the point. It may not have been designed with VR in mind originally, but it's a novelty for the people who love both.

  • Very strongly disagree. Doom 3 VR is easily one of my favorite PSVR games. Yes the scaling is wonky, but VR elevates Doom 3 so much it's hard to believe it wasn't originally intended to be a VR game. Not every VR game needs to use hand tracking style controls or room scale, VR can simply be a way to make traditional games way more immersive. The Aim controller is great with Doom 3 VR, but even just the motion tracked DualShock 4 works really well.

  • You'd think by now ign would have found a reviewer who can play a vr game with free movement without needing to throw up. By all means get a second person unused to vr to give an opinion on the comfort for beginners, but the main reviewer needs to be able to actually cope with simulated movement as much of the target audience will be able to.

    • Dude, if you're trying to get reviews meant for veterans, please, don't watch IGN, cause this is literally a channel meant for casual gamers in the least offensive way of saying it possible. If you don't want to listen to their opinion, by all means, do so, but stop nagging them about not using a team. I'm pretty sure they don't just give one person to give pointers for the review, just one person to write for it.

      deliriumDrew VRdeliriumDrew VR9 hari yang lalu
    • @deliriumDrew VR it would be fine, but when the enemies are right up in your face in swarms that's when it gets bad. fast movement is fantastic in VR, but down thin corridors and room sized arenas it gets annoying. although, if enough testing and intuitive design goes into a game even something that sounds awful could be fantastic feeling, or it could feel terrible and disappointing even if its based on a well known and loved game series (like DOOM VFR)

  • There's a kind of fix for the scaling, it involves doing a calibration of the interpupilary distance, you can search it for specifics on how to do it

    Taimat CRTaimat CR10 hari yang lalu
    • Interpupilary distance set to 37mm around its ok. Go to Settings / Accessories / PlayStation VR / Adjust IPD eyes distance. Instead pointing to the center of your eyes, put the crosses at the very inner beginning of the eyes near the nose. When done the IPD distance should be near 37mm.
