It is very different, but looking at the way quake and doom where heading it might be for the best. I hope that both Titles head back to their roots, I was bored to death on last Quake and Doom3 well was very slow to start and bored me.

DooM 3 failed miserably, and Quake 4 was a little blah. I like the older ones. i still play Q2 on my psp (best OST ever)
