It offers and intense single player experience that introduces tactical gameplay, disturbing imagery, tense moments and boot to the face all in a Hollywood style science fiction setting. Quake II offers the ability for players to compete in multiplayer matches such as Death matches and Capture the Flag but there are a ton of modifications available for everything from the maps to the weapons and character skins. Now, Quake is at this time 14 years old but it still holds up as a fantastic game that showcases what games can be even with a somewhat limited technology and die hard fans while opening the door to the possibilities for the future of gaming.

    This First Person Shooter is different than most today due to the speed at which it is played. There are no other games today that are so fastThis First Person Shooter is different than most today due to the speed at which it is played. There are no other games today that are so fast paced and require as much dexterity as this game. It is true that the game is so fast paced partly due to abuses in the Quake2 engine, but nonetheless, it makes the game even more enjoyable. The online user interface is mediocre compared to today, but this game was released in 1997, but the level of fun that you can have while playing this online is immense. The atmosphere of the online scene is quite unique with all the players being die-hards who have played for literally decades. The superb skill-set which most of the players have just adds to the fun. The numerous mods that can be played on various servers is what is truly makes the game and has literally kept the game alive for years. But if one gets tired of the online scene, they can always turn to LAN or Single Player. LAN is great to play with friends at LAN parties or just for nostalgia purposes. The single player, while not having the most deep plot to last through the ages does have lots of action. But come on, who plays FPS's for the plot anyway? The single player is linear for the most part but is non-stop fun/killing with a wonderful boss battle to top it off. This game has sucked more time from me than any other game and I truly recommend it. Full Review »

    Quake2 was the first FPS game to add "jump" to the game mechanics as all other previous fps games were strictly walk around and press buttons.Quake2 was the first FPS game to add "jump" to the game mechanics as all other previous fps games were strictly walk around and press buttons. It was back in those days when players could make their own multiplayer and co-op maps and then release them to the masses within the MSN Gaming Zone servers. It was where the the first "rocket-jump" mechanic was invented using existing game mechanics by altering the mechanics' values via simple text files executed in a live game. This game was the adam and eve of all current FPS games. I, myself created over 500 multiplayer maps over the course of 4 years as the game's popularity lasted no shorter than 10 years, well beyond the creation of Quake3. Full Review »
