Modern review of Quake II (Game from 1997)
« on: September 28, 2016, 12:34:54 pm »
So first of all, what is Quake? Quake is a first person shooter by ID Software (The makers of the DOOM games) they have made five Quake games total. (Quake, Quake II, Quake III Arena, Quake IV, Quake Live) and I'd definitely recommend you check the series out.
Now, to the review.

Quake II is a classic first person shooter, it is one of my favourite games mainly because of the fast paced multiplayer and the level design. It has a ton of third party mission packs. (I haven't gotten around to trying other mission packs yet.) I love that the game is kind of like a first person shooter with puzzles mixed in. I could play this game for hours and it has cool weapons like Railgun, Chaingun, Hyper Blaster, Rocket Launcher, Crowbar.. Wait that's Half Life (Thought I'd try adding humor.), Grenade Launcher, Shotgun, and Super Shotgun. If I had to rate this game it'd be a 9.3/10. I recommend you try this game out for yourself.

Quake 2 is cool and all, but the multiplayer is dead. I personally enjoyed the single player campaign. Quake 3, on the other hand, is still alive and kicking. Nice review, you deserve a cookie.

Oh, uhh... *chuckles*  I'm still using the old disk version. I'll look into that.
