PhilipS.10OK I'm the person that rated Quake 4 as a 410 based on poor graphics. I'm back to right a wrong. Recently I bought a LCD HDTV for my Xbox 360 and I'm playing games in 1080i. I decided to download the Quake 4 Demo (after trading it in a while ago). I can not believe it is the same game. The graphics explode and come to life in HDTV. This is now one of my favorite games. If you have a HDTV this game is a must have.… Expand
GerJ.8This game is alright, I mean the gameplay is great, the AI is great, but sometimes the games grapics get choppy, but this wouldn't stop a determined gamer. I think its still a great shooter to pick up.… Expand
Good for being on Xbox 360, but:
If you play this game, don't think that all Quakes are like that. They're all excellent games, so don't take this one as a quake. Slow gameplay (although not as much as games like CoD), there's reload (it's horrible to reload in a fps arena)... and generally, there are some bad points. It's a very good game, for being a Xbox 360 one. I think that, since you can't be very fast on X360, it's good to have reload etc.. It's like it was made for consoles, so, this is good for consoles but (compared to other Quakes) bad for computers.
Honestly, I would give it a 5.8 (good), but I give it, for Xbox, a 6.6, because the gameplay is fits very much it.… Expand
PhilK.4A lazy port of a below-average PC game. Nice graphics, but fraught with frame rate problems, and the usual FPS cliches of dimly lit metallic corridors. Gameplay feels very dated, almost like a re-hash of Quake 2. Multiplayer is also the same old story. Some people may view this as a good thing. On the plus side, a perfect port of Quake 2 is included as a bonus, but only the single player mode.… Expand
