Ruiner is a dark, nightmarish, fast paced third person action modification for Doom3. The player assumes the role of a herald of death & fights hordes of the damned using unique weapons, abilities and spells.
the ideas and talent put into this MOD are great. The MOD is also very enjoyable with a few glitches per se. The gripes I have are not fully with the MOD itself but how it uses it's own config file. But all things aside, the content is good and very enjoyable. The new monster's were freakin sweet and looked very bad ***. The hero that you use is a very high quality model with great detail. I really hope they decide to make a full MOD from this and not just leave it as is because it has so much potential.
The Mod provided excellent game play, but it was a bit too difficult, the weapons were adequate but if spells could be considered completely separate from weapons then it would be better.
Monster design was brilliant specially the Guardian, but also insanely powerful. This Mod should be remade with another Engine but this time in form of a game. Something like BloodRayne ?
All the same, it was a brilliant Doom 3 mod, i havent had seen anything this brilliant in other doom 3 mods. But of course, the lack of Widescreen support is a bit annoying, in the end i had to use the main resolutions, i hope that in the final release the mod can support widescreen, or at least being able to provide custom resolution.
Excellent work. Been waiting a while to play this and I can safely say that I was not disappointed. A very different approach to the standard Doom 3 gameplay that works very well. There were a few quirks that come with all betas, but nothing to bring this mod down. Runs great, looks great, and sounds great. An excellent addition to the Doom 3 mod list.
The long and anticipated wait for the Ruiner mod now comes to a close. Bustling with Doom 2 content, a new lighting system, and a completely new environment, the Ruiner mod is indeed a must have for Doom 3 fans, especially for those who own the steam version. There are just too many Doom 3 mods that fall flat on their face just because they don't sense that necessary line of code in your computer. The Ruiner mod does have a few rough edges though, here and there a bug can be found, but nothing that bars the game's experience from you. The outdoor areas do choke for some reason, but thankfully the fps drop isn't fatal. The only linger question that remains is that the team would stick together long enough to get the final product or even a patch out. Overall, 9/10.
