Quake II User Reviews
Multiplayer, shoot things thats about it. Mixed enemys. A classic not to be messed with.The bad:
Old graphics. Little compatibility for my 2ghz wonder machine. They should do a remake. Dodgy settings yo mess with.Summary:
This is an average game. Too much swearing for a game that has so much potential. There is a lot of mixed opponents to fight. Its dosnt like my 2ghz machine with 64meg video card, which is dissapointing. The options barely do anything on my machine, and since I am a programmer, I might do a unofficial patch for it so that its likes newer machines. This game alright... for one that was released in 1997. The weapons arent that varied, despite what the manual says. This game only kills a couple of my high standards in shoot-em-ups. Oh well, another opertunity wasted.
First Person Shooters have always been very competitive but nothing compared to the Quake Series, Quake II was a highly anticipated release because of the success of the original Quake.... But was the game a success like the first?
Another one of those games that feels like the story was thrown in at the last minute. You have crashed on another planet and found out that you are one of the survivng few out of about a hundred of your men. You then have to fight your way through tons and tons of aliens for your right for survival.
no matter how old this game gets its still one of the if not the best 3d shooter out to date. The online following is huge, and you don't get sick of this game...ever. I've been playing it ever since it came out and i only have a p150, game looks like ass on my computer compared to everone elses, but the game is so fun it doesn't even matter. And when you have a good computer it kicks even more ass because all the textures look so good under colored lights.
Better than Quake, and Quake 3. COMBINED! OpenGL, Glide, PowerVR Extreme, you want it you got it. 32-24-16 bit color. Too many mods! Awesome multiplayer!!!The bad:
Bad, that word is not in Quake II's vocabulary. Unless you're playing the single player game...Summary:
I BOUGHT MY NEW COMPUTER BACK IN THE DAY FOR THIS GAME!!! It was a 200 mhz Pentium MMX, 32 edo ram, with a PowerVR PCX2.
Now since we're in the Gigahertz age, Quake II runs more beautiful and faster than ever with Voodoo 5 and GeForce 2 Ultra, and TNT2, and so on...
Buy this game if you don't own it. In fact, I bought this game before I owned my P-200. I had a 486/66 dx2 at the time. Now with my 500, 128 sdram, and Banshee I'm cooking it up multiplayer.
The weapons are landmark, especially the BFG. If you've never played this one, don't try it, just buy it. If you did play this, ask yourse...
