Doom III Xbox screenshots

If John Carpenter and HR Giger had babies, then they might look like some of these. (With apologies to any children of John Carpenter and HR Giger.)

Following last week's news that Doom III Xbox would feature co-operative online play despite the lack of split-screen options, a series of screenshots of the Vicarious Visions-penned Xbox version have popped up this Wednesday, confirming something else that our sneaky source in the States told us: that it's "very, very faithful to the PC version," and looks great.

Granted, it's easy to poke fun at zombies in fishing waders and at times it does resemble an aborted screen test for The Thing, but it's clear the console is chucking around a lot of detail while remaining capable of some Alien-esque lighting, and hasn't sacrificed too much of the detail of its PC counterpart in order to achieve this.

With E3 just weeks away, we're already gearing up for what we hope will be some form of playable Doom, and if Id Software is still on track and John Carmack's GDC comments still stand, then we won't have to wait all that much longer to buy it, either.
