This Doom 3 mod will give you a "survival horror" Nightmare-level feel to the Veteran difficulty level.
While I (like many others) enjoyed Doom3 immensely, I felt that something wasn't quite "right" in the gameplay experience. Too often I was passing up armor and ammunition because I was already loaded down with enough ordinance to give Satan himself a nasty flesh wound.
As a fan of "survival horror" games, I've loved the tension of dwindling ammo stores, making every shot count because I wasn't sure if I'd have enough bullets to face the next unholy creature that craved my flesh.
That's the atmosphere that this Mod seeks to create. In effect, it looks to create a "Nightmare"-like experience without the rather cheesy trick id Software resorted to. The weapons are a bit more fairly balanced (no more riding the shotgun for all it's worth); the monsters are tougher and require more careful aiming to take down easily; and available ammunition is reduced- carelessly blasting away at enemies will, more often than not, leave you with less ammunition than demons to fire it at.
This time, you're not a walking armory. This time, every opponent is dangerous. Hell itself waits to see if you are a true survivor.
HOW TO INSTALL AND PLAY:
- Simply unzip this file into your Doom3 main folder. Start up the game, click the "Mods" selection and select "Doom- True Survival" from the list. Start a new game- I recommend Veteran difficulty for best results.
