This book was written by the same guy who wrote the script for the video game "Doom3". It had some great back-story of the scientists and the history of some of the marines leading up to "the incident". Great book if you liked the game. On it's own, this book felt one very big chapter to the start of a good story. This may be because I have played the game and know what is coming and am just anticipating it. All in all, I am looking forward to book #2. If it was available I woul ...more
This book has a good storyline, with about half of it being on Earth following an marine officer Kane in engagement before he's sent to Mars; and the other half on Mars itself before the incident. Kane is the main POV character although we do follow several others throughout the book.

This was a great book for someone like me (a Doom geek). I tried to read some of the earlier books published for the series (by another author) but they were terrible. It was like they were just re-enacting the game, level-by-level.

This book is not like that. It explores back-story and the set up. A Mars colonisation, and a rebel Marine who gets caught up with it all. Dr Betruger is a bit of a "mad scientist" who is conducting experiments on Mars that go horribly wrong. Ian Kelliher; the chief
I'm a big fan of the video game. This is essentially a prequel to where the game starts. I guess book 2 in this series will take it from there. I enjoyed visiting the characters and environs I've enjoyed in the game itself, and the writing was very good. However, it did have something of a 'set-up' feel for when the real action starts.
