DOOM 3 ships
id Software's ($50) for Macintosh began shipping today and will be on retail shelves everywhere by March 19, publisher Aspyr said. DOOM 3 is the much-anticipated 3D action game that utilizes id's revolutionary new 3D graphics engine to create "disturbingly realistic graphics," with "never before seen detail and real-time lighting." The Associated Press has called DOOM 3, "one of the scariest games ever made," and TIME magazine says DOOM 3 is "too lifelike for comfort." The game quickly became the fastest selling action shooter in the U.S. when it was released for the PC. Players can "fight the forces of evil" as a lone marine or battle other marines in team or deathmatch-based multiplayer modes.
