Quarantine II: Road Warrior
Description official descriptions
Quarantine II: Road Warrior is the sequel to Quarantine the driving game. As in the original, you still play the role of Drake Edgewater, a cab driver whose only goal is to escape the hell of futuristic Kemo City. Using his cab as the only way to survive, Drake accepts a series of special missions against OmniCorp. The money is used to repair and upgrade his vehicle with new weapons, as each ride into the city is risky business. Thus, from mission to mission through different parts of the town, he finally reaches the exit way to freedom.

The Quarantine series has been among the first games I know to present a huge 3D open air environment - an entire city.
The graphics weren't even up to date when the game came on the market, but they were fast. And it was amazingly thrilling to ride a hover-cab through a dark future city, blasting everything out of the way.
"Road Warrior" is the sequel to Quarantine and it doesn't change gameplay a bit. I was very disappointed, when I found out that it looks like the first part, sound like the first part and plays like the first part of the series. In fact, it is more a mission disk than a new game.
The Bottom Line
Quarantine is a dark future cab-simulation. It offers guns, passengers and 100s of mini quests, which are all very similar (drop someone off somewhere, shoot someone/something or take on another passenger). It's not among my classics, nor is it among my top ten of worst games ever. Maybe among the top 20.

The comic book that comes with Road Warrior has some striking similarities to the comic book that came with Rise of the Dragon. More specifically, they both feature parodies of the same set of old adverts from '50s comics (Charles Atlas, toy soldiers, joke company, etc.)
