Doom 3 (stylized as DOOM3) was a survival horror first-person shooter video game developed by id Software and published by Activision. It was released for the Xbox on April 5th, 2005 in North America.
Ignoring the events of the previous Doom games, the game is the first reboot to the series. Doom 3 is set in 2145 on Mars, where a military-industrial conglomerate has set up a scientific research facility to research into fields such as teleportation, biological research and advanced weapons design.
The game was a critical and commercial success; with more than 3.5 million copies of the game sold, it is the most successful game by developer id Software to date. Critics praised the game’s graphics and presentation, although reviewers were divided by how close the gameplay was to that of the original Doom.
Cheers & Game On!
