Its crap, just installed on my E90. It does not even start, like the previous ports of Doom. I wasn't expecting anything more from it than just a successful install anyways.

To run this game you need quite a lot of RAM and a TI OMAP 2420 processor. The OMAP 2420 has dual cpu with 3D HARDWARE acceleration. The 3D hardware graphics is crucial...

This is why the game runs on N95 8GB, N82 and E90. All of them have the OMAP 2420. The game does not run on the n95 classic because it doesn't have enough RAM although it does have the CPU.

The Samsung INNOV8 (i8510) has an OMAP 2430 but has a "lite" version of 3D hardware acceleration not as good as the OMAP 2420 so may still work if the developer gets around to supporting it but you will get less FPS.

AND FINALLY OTHER PHONES THAT DON'T HAVE THE OMAP 2420/2430 SIMPLY IS NOT POWERFUL ENOUGH. PERIOD! FULLSTOP! END!

So if you're asking if x phone that is not listed above will not work.

you have to forget about stuff like cracking noises an other such stuff, so many people make fusses about tiny things i mean its just a phone man and this is imperfect world you can't 100% phone. Please in reviews keep things like plastic used, design etc..to only the essentials i mean if its a major prob of noises than ok but everything will make a slight crackling sound when used so much. Phones do survive alot cause they are the most used gadget. Thanks
