Description official descriptions

This version of Quake II differs from the other releases by replacing most of the levels with new ones. Some of the levels have familiar themes or even re-create the original ones closely; however, new stages are dominant, tending to be significantly shorter than those of the PC version. This release also features additional graphical effects, such as lighting during gunfire. Multiplayer for up to four participants is included.

The Good
It's almost completely different from the PC version as far as missions, so you get a totally new story (although people who played through the PC version will see some levels that look oddly familiar... :) ) There's lots of action, cool weapons, and the multiplayer is great fun with 4 people- first one to get the BFG wins! :)

The Bad
Choppy animation on most of the weapons on-screen (especially the minigun! Ouch!) Blurry graphics, low-res textures, almost no color variation (shades of brown and puke-green... yechhh! This can be fixed if you turn on the Frooty Colors code...) The sound effects sound like they were recorded in a can. The ending is lame.

The Bottom Line
Pretty good. If you must have more Quake 2 then you should buy this- it gives you a new adventure. If you like multiplayer games then this is also a good choice because it has pretty good multiplayer. The graphics are bland and boring and the sound effects are nothing new, but you'll like it.
