Summary

An excellent addition to the Quake series!!!

The Good

I liked the graphics in particular. The enemy AI and models were excellent, just as you'd expect from ID Software. The updated engine had some new features too, like 3D Accelerator support, and switching hands, later to be seen in Counter Strike.

The Bad

The few things that let Quake 2 down a bit were the repetitive levels and the "hardness" of it, even on easy. I had to use cheats to get past it. These are minor things, I know, but the game could have been a lot better if these things were fixed. Other than that, the game was awesome!!!

The Bottom Line

Many people say that Quake 2 can't top the original Quake. I think (out of my own opinion) that this tops the original Quake. And since it's been released as a budget game in a DVD case for $9.95, you can't go past that!!!
