  1. Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars is a revolutionary online experience, a paradigm shift in tactical multiplayer game design, and the online game that the console world has been waiting for.
  2. While not without its foibles, Quake Wars on the Xbox 360 is a fine representation of last year's great PC game.
  3. Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars makes the jump to consoles well although it's not perfectly intact.
  4. Fans of RTCW: Enemy Territory will love Quake Wars. Hardcore shooter fans who enjoy teamwork will also love it.

    Enemy Territory: Quake Wars is the kind of shooter that will garner a cult following and be loved by all who take the time to learn all of what it has to offer.
  6. While it's not the next evolution of competitive FPS by any stretch of the imagination, a clean frontend with good party support and matchmaking at least lets those players who can forgive its faults an easy way to play the game the way it was meant to be.
  7. Xbox 360 owners should certainly consider giving Quake Wars a shot though. It's a very impressive package and should gain a decent online following.
  8. Some may dislike the shocking pace of Quake Wars while for others, it might just be that step too far into the land of confusion. But if your reactions have been honed in the more uptempo shooters of our day – TimeSplitters and UT to name but a few – rather than trudging around in Halo or Battlefield, this could well be the blend of speedy action and team-based mechanics you’ve been holding out for.
  9. If you don't have Xbox LIVE, steer well clear of this because the AI simply doesn't cut it. Still, if you have LIVE, and are looking for a fun online shooter to tide you over, you could do a lot worse than ET: QW.
  10. What Enemy Territory: Quake Wars ends up being is a FPS with solid core gameplay of guns, vehicles, and equipment.
  11. Finally, the move to the consoles should make this game available to many more people, but it costs twice as much as it does for PC and isn't as good.
  12. Get this one for its online action, which moves quickly and rewards those who have the skill and knowledge to play to the strengths of the many weapons and vehicles.
  13. A well-structured multiplayer FPS that encourages teamwork over gung-ho heroics. [Aug 2008, p.71]
  14. Whether its quirks annoy you more than its strengths entertain you, though, all boils down to how much of a Quake fan you are.
  15. If you're looking for a short diversion from other FPS titles, this will interest you for a little while, but you're not likely to be wowed by it in any way.

    Still a blast to play, and with online multiplayer and CPU controlled bots readily available from the get-go, you'll never find yourself fighting a battle alone. It may not be deep, but it sure as hell is fun.
  17. The game is very ambitious for what it is trying to accomplish and although it may have not reached the goal that it wanted to on the Xbox 360, it’s as close as anyone has gotten so far.
  18. Far from being revolutionary, it also doesn’t do anything fundamentally wrong that might compromise the experience. In the end, it’s a good online FPS with a more classic feeling, which can please the hardcore fans of this genre and eager to find some great competition online. [July 2008]
  19. Lag and framerate issues spoils a decent sci fi shooter. [Aug 2008]

It feels like a destructive battlefield against the skills of teamwork from the opposite side. Though it gets repetitive and I took long breaks for while because it felt plain afterwards once I played it for too long.Overall experience of the game is amazing and it will forever be in my arsenal pack of video games.
