Doom 3 packshot image
Science has unlocked the gates to the unknown, and now only one man stands between Hell and Earth. A sci-fi horror masterpiece, DOOM 3 is like nothing you have experienced. Dramatic storyline, pulse-pounding action, incredible graphics, and revolutionary technology combine to draw you into the most frightening and gripping first person gaming experience ever created. The ruins of an ancient martian civilization have unlocked the secrets to teleportation, and the UAC will stop at nothing to harness this world-altering technology. As part of a marine detachment sent to protect the facility, your duty seemed simple enough... until the invasion. Now, in an epic clash against pure evil you must fight to understand who is with you, who is against you, and what must be done to stop this nightmare from reaching earth.

So, the one on Steam says that it does not support Windows 7, and I have Win7 and I'd really like to get this game. Can I get some verification from someone more tech-savvy, pls?

I'm running Windows 7 and I can play it fine, you may have to tweak some stuff in the config file to get it working properly, especially if you want it in 16:9 aspect ratio. But to answer your question yes it should work fine on Windows 7.

I can't believe it. I need proof. Anyway, it's good to hear it can run in your rig and even though you set it the game's setting high. that's remarkable!

Hey guys, I have a pretty up to date upper-middle class gaming rig yet the game simply won't allow me to run it at anything higher than low settings. Anyone have a fix? Oh and also, I'm using Win 7.

It's something weird to do with the resolution, I get the same problem. You're going to want to install the sikkmod and the texture pack it comes with, I can't remember the exact link but there's a DL on moddb that'll be what you need. It really looks nice and it even destroys my system. Gotta get to OC that 4690k :D

Ha, I had that same rig. Try high settings for playable FPS buddy. But i had a pentium D. Play at 1024 for best results with that GPU… much outdated.
