How id lost it's FPS crown

This article does an excellant job articulating my own criticisms of Doom 3 and exploring how it is that id has for the first time failed to set the industry standard with their new game. Doom 3 is too slow, too over-written, the AI sucks, and the plot is old. Though Steve Bowler only makes passing mention of it, in my mind the current best FPS out there is Halo 2, it does a great job of combining plot with stupid violence.
