Hmm, notice they use a FPS view. I wonder if it's a good or bad thing to have that in, it might feel weird having the game in the film. They do have the chainsaw though I'm glad to see, they couldn't really make the film without it eh.

Methinks it'll go the same way as the Resident Evil movies...

i.e. straight to the bargain bin http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/mockface.gif

Games like Doom (even Doom 3, wherein they put a lot more effort copying 'story' files from System Shock 2 than they did in the originals) just don't have enough scope for a believable film.

Whereas a game like Half-Life...well, given a half-decent director who isn't just interested in the explosions, you could really do something with it. Half Life was written by a real writer, for one thing, and you always had the impression that there was a lot more to the story than was been given to you up front (a telltale sign of competent writing). The leading character, Gordon Freeman, has the possibility of being much more unique (once again, in the hands of a good writer/director) than the default 'hard-assed marine' that Doom offers, and the whole story allows for much more interest and intrigue WHILE still allowing for plenty of action to please the lowest common denominator.

Anyway, just my 0.02.

I'm with Junko, there's a lot of potential for a Half Life movie. Just don't let Holliwood get their hands on it http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

During all these years I have wondered if not BOOM is a better name for that game.
Its simple and explanatory. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Oh yeah, that reminds me, why does he still call himself The Rock? You'd think that he'd be using his real name by now. Or maybe he doesn't have one?

I yust hope that he wont have more lines of speech that the marine from the game has (0). http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

bah, just silly, just silly. silly game, silly movie, silly actor.

Just finished playing through Doom3 the second time. It's a nice game, but I have a bad feeling about the movie. Couldn't they even have chosen a decent actor in it? Nope. It will probably be even worse than Alien vs Predator. Gotta watch it though http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif
