'Doom 3: BFG Edition' Xbox 360 install not recommended

By
Doom 3: BFG Edition does not support a full install option for Xbox 360.

Users can carry out a full installation of some titles for a performance boost, but publisher Bethesda Softworks has warned players that doing so in this instance will be detrimental.

The company told Shack News that there is no performance-related benefit to installing the game and doing so will lock players out of the versions of Doom and Doom 2 that come bundled with the release.

"We recommend not installing the game," Bethesda's Matt Grandstaff told the website. "There is no performance advantage to installing the game to your hard drive."

Doom 3: BFG Edition features the full original Doom 3 game, its 'Resurrection of Evil' expansion and eight new levels for an extended campaign called 'The Lost Mission'.

The game and expansions have received enhanced visuals and lighting effects, 3D display support, 5.1 surround sound and achievement/trophy support on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

It also addresses a major fan complaint with the original game by mounting the flashlight on each gun, making it so players no longer need to switch between using one or the other.

Doom 3: BFG Edition is available now in North America, and will release from October 19 in Europe for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
