That's what i meant, sorry, i didnt mean to say doom3 was trying to be something like Thief.
The game doesn't play at all like Resident Evil either. There's no survival aspect in its gameplay. It's a pretty straight forward, room cleaning shooter like Painkiller is, just less humorous.
And I don't think you could consider using the same tools to tell the story as SS2 did ripping it off. It's simply a device to bring the story across and SS2 isn't particularly unique there either. It's like saying all games that tell the story through screens with text narration and pictures between gameplay rip off Wolfenstein 3D.
