EXCELLENT SOUND FX,
EXCELLENT MODS and MAPS available,
EXCELLENT usage of CPU (can play on a laptop),
EXCELLENT INTRO MOVIE,
EXCELLENT MAP DESIGNS,
THE QUAKE SYMBOL KICKS ASS =C,
YOU CANT BEAT A RAILGUN.
Poor Single Player Experience. No variety in visuals like Half Life. No Bot/Cheat prevention in Multiplayer offered standard.
Even the bad points of this game cant force me to give it any lower than a 10. It is just too addictive.
Quake 2 PC game from ID software has got to be the coolest game I've ever played.
Everytime I start it I MUST watch the Intro Movie.
This game tends to become an obsession rather than a game to me. I found myself mindlessly drawing Quake 2 QUAD symbols =C
I found myself playing alone just listening to the sound FX especially the RAILGUN. They have NEVER made a weapon in ANY game cooler than Quake 2's railgun. The only weapon that I feel EVEN COMES CLOSE to the visceral effect I get firing the RAILGUN is firing the AWP in Counterstrike.
In a lot of ways these weapons are alike.
Equal reload times. They are both 1 shot killers. They are Both Feared when seen. They are both FEARED when heard! and EVERYONE tries to ban them or keep them out of the hands of a bot.
THE R A I L G U N kicks ass!
