Doom 3 was terrible.

PC fans will have to wait for DICE with their planned Battlefield 3 reveal on March1st, to see if a major game built on DX11, featuring things like DX11 multithreading (if drivers ever come), tessellation, native 64 bit support, etc. can really raise the bar. It used to be the case that the games forced upgrades. Games coming out with DX9 in 2011 can never do that and you know this before you even play them.
The lighting is incredible though, in the first game too. Iirc, they apparently had experts from the movie world. They used a specially developed deferred lighting mesh?? Imho, DS's lighting was to that game, what those superb water effects were to Bioshock.

I note a couple of people stating that the controls are better in DS2 so I may give it a go when it comes down in price a bit.
