It's a brand new Doom episode, MGS was the same price - stands to reason this would be around the $13 mark

I'm holding out for Dark Forces before I jump to saying things are complete, but we're getting there :)

Umm it's not the original doom though.. and it's a rail shooter.. should be interesting to see how it performs on a 3G over a 3GS... I'm waiting for the original doom to come out.. I sense shortly :)

What, the 3GS can't handle Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast? ;)

$13 :(

List most apps I'm guessing this will drop to around $5 in a few weeks. Maybe even more.

I'll wait.

I'll wait too. This isn't the original Doom :(

This I would pay $12.99 for. Doom, whilst very tempting, I can live without.

and it wasn't written by John Carmack....done by external developers.

Carmack is apparently working on porting the legacy ID apps to iPhone...i.e. Wolf3d (done), Original Doom and Quake.

I heard quake will be 'rail' too?

In any case, lots more goodies on the way.. nintendo ought to be pooping themselves by now.

maybe if they started porting some of their games they'd find newfound success! I mean I'd love to play some old nintendo platform games, or even some of their older fps on the iphone

In a world where DS and PSP games go new for $60, I don't understand the aversion to $13 iPhone games.

So has anyone played it on a regular iPhone 3G? what's the performance like?

Looks sweet but only 8 levels :unsure:

Have you seen the hardware numbers for DS and Wii? Then add all the shit software they sell but the bucket load! Nintendo doesn't give a fuck about iPhone gaming...

Sony are the ones who should be shitting themselves...

It's pretty cool, and blew me away with what's possible on a mobile platform.

I'd love to see the original Doom on here though, just like Wolfenstein had a make-over.

^agreed - the graphics are quite stunning for the iPhone, better on the 3GS I imagine too! I'll be playing the hell out of this on the tram home tonight. Ooh I should also mention EXCELLENT sound effects taken straight from Doom 3

I must say, after playing the Doom game for a while, I sure noticed the graphics improvement of the 3GS over the regular 3G.
