SummaryA milestone in PC gaming.
The GoodThis game is just plain amazing. It's graphically the most beautiful game ever created (especially when you consider most games just two or three years older have less appealing prerendered graphics!), the music is simply unbelievable (go Straylight go!) and even the game itself is really good.
I can definitely appreciate the quality of the game, especially when you consider the fact that it was never intended to be released, only as a demo of their 3D engine. The graphics are even more impressive than Quake III: Arena's and the music/sound effects beat any first person shooter to date.
The BadThe first thing missing in this game is an atmosphere; no claustrophobic hallways as in Doom, no frantic hate as in Wolfenstein 3D. While it does have some "andrenaline-rush" parts in the game the one-player game is continuously dull in atmosphere. The multiplayer game is also a bit slow, but still rocks.
The second problem are the insane system requirements - I couldn't run it on a Pentium 166 with Voodoo 2 at an acceptable level, and the framerate only gets an "OK" label on a P2-350 with Riva TNT (for a year-old game?!)... But hey, it's worth it!
