I recently reinstalled DOOM 3 and played the few maps and the atmosphere was indeed amazing. Much creepier than F.E.A.R. 2. I can agree that it's sometimes a bit too dark, and you often had to kill a monster in pitch black darkness because you couldn't have your flashlight up at the same time, on the other hand, that gives a different game experience. The story isn't an oscar, but it's actually above average to first-person shooters. The System Shock-style audiologs worked well too. I thought that sometimes it was a bit stupid how monsters popped up from being hidden behind panels, which I also remember was a common criticizm.

Overall though, DOOM 3 is really a game that people should try out. You might have updated your hardware since the game came, meaning you can play it in a greater resolution.
