#5 Doom 3 - [ Xbox ]
Doom 3 is an amazing display of visual and audio mastery; its technology and art design are simply magnificent. But as an FPS game, Doom 3 is merely competent. Even diehard fans would probably agree that it's no "masterpiece of the art form" (as PC Gamer trumpeted in its eyebrow-raising exclusive review). The problem goes way beyond those annoying monster closets. The game is probably most notable for what you can't do: you can't use any secondary firing modes, you can't upgrade your weapons, you can't diverge from the rigid level design, and you can't interact with your environment (with one key exception: those awesome computer panels). In the end, there isn't much to do besides blast monsters. Doom 3 is a solid, enjoyable exercise, but it's not a truly legendary game.
