Similar to the story of the original Doom, the game focuses on the marine who is transferred to Mars and sent out on a routine mission, and who needs to kill zombies and demons from Hell. One difference is that Doom 3 is set on Mars itself, whereas the first two episodes of the original Doom take place on Phobos and Deimos, respectively (Mars is always considered secured by the humans).

The environment of Doom 3 is generally much more realistic. For example, whereas the original Doom gives the two moons breathable atmospheres, Doom 3's Martian atmosphere is unbreathable (although oxygen tanks allow the player to breathe for a brief time). The gravity is still the same as Earth's, instead of being slightly lower like Mars should be. (If the player with all his gear weighed 300 pounds on Earth, he would weigh 114 pounds on Mars.) Unlike classic Doom, Doom 3's Demons from Hell have their bodies dissolve when they die, except zombies and certain bosses.

In both cases, the protagonist visits [[Hell]]. In the original Doom, it is the third episode Inferno ([[Ultimate Doom]] adds a fourth, [[Thy Flesh Consumed]], which takes place on Earth), whereas in Doom 3, it is only one level, but Doom 3's one Hell level is much longer and more intense than the others, and with screaming of damned souls. It also has a boss called the [[Guardian]]. Other bosses include the Spider Queen, or [[Vagary]] (inspired by Dungeons and Dragons' Drider, a dark-elf/spider hybrid, as well as Quake's Vore, though the Vagary can also be seen as an apparent nod to the [[spiderdemon]] from the original Doom as well as Shelob from ''Lord of the Rings'') and [[Sergeant Kelly]], who gets transformed into a tank-like cyborg called [[Sabaoth]].
