Doom 3: VR Edition Review
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.

    Jesus this review is hot garbage. This game kills! Don't believe a word of this review.

  • dpazavalos

    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

  • colaboytje

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

  • danielrhenke

    Play it on Quest 2 instead of PSVR

    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...

    Doom 3 is so much better than the 2 newer ones. They're OK but without the horror factor it just seems cheesy

    • papasnejk87

      especially doom eternal in which you are constantly being forced to do fatalities in a desparate hope to get ammo!

  • Vesperitis

    To quote a certain caustic games reviewer from England who lives in Australia, "Virtual F***ing Reality"

    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)

  • VodkaAndAK47

    Garbage review, 7 or 8 at best

  • Pat Fer

    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.

  • Kay.

    "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.

    IGN stands for IGNore this dude and go buy doom 3 VR. ITS DOPE

  • Wavyhill

    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.

  • bigwhopper6501

    You guys should get someone who can actually stomach vr before writing reviews on vr games

    It's funny that the Doom 3 VR mod made by like 3 people featuring full motion controls (IE no controller) is somehow more functional and funner playing than a full official VR port by a genuine game studio lmao

    • Nihilist Ryan the Game Feline
      Nihilist Ryan the Game Feline

      It's not tho. The Aim controller is what makes this game. And The Oculus Port doesn't have it.

      It really is, typical ign. And you can tweak the world scaling to be larger by adjusting the the eye to eye measurment closer together.

    Did he really ding it for motion sickness?? 🤦🤦 Man that's a personal issue. Regular VR players don't get motion sickness. I'm hours into it ,zero motion sickness.


    This game plays great. Go toss yourself down a couple flights of steps and then come back and review it.

    The game is by no means perfect, and scaling of NPC's are a bit rubbish but with a PSVR aim controller this game is easily 7/10 at least. 👍

    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.

      Its not that crazy. Mars is the only place where scientist will be able to really mess around with genetic engineering so they could create mutants that resemble demons and use them as slave labor to terraform the harsh martian landscape and these mutants could revolt and take over the martian cities like the demons in the game.

    For some reason some DOOM fans doesn't count DOOM 3 as part of the series when it's actually it's oh you want a proof the character you play as in DOOM 3 is actually DOOM guy but in this game he is a bit younger and if you are wondering what is time line of this series here it is : (1) DOOM 3 (2) DOOM (2016) (3) DOOM (4) DOOM 2 (5) DOOM N64 (6) DOOM ETERNALS (7) DOOM ETERNALS : THE ANCIENT GODS PART 1,2

    DOOM is like, the WORST candidate for VR, fast movement with swarms of enemies with lots of rapid turning while moving at a constant 50mph down corridors? worst case scenario for VR

    • deliriumDrew VR
      deliriumDrew VR

      @KomodoBadger there is a walk button if you’re going too fast

    • KomodoBadger

      @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

    • A. P.
      A. P.

      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.
