Summary: Same old boring Doom 4 engine. Lacks the atmosphere and gameplay of original Quake - same as original Doom. Please someone give us the original games back, this boring flashy stuff is a waste of time.
Summary: To be honest, this is a slight disappointment. I love Doom 3 and all the previous versions of Quake, but this game just didn't seem to have what I wanted. Don't get me wrong, it's good, but not excellent like Doom 3.
50% faster pace, and 50% less frightening, than Doom 3.

Summary: Very fast pace and sort of mindless game, which means it's pure fun. very suitable for 9-to-5 day-to-day workers: 6pm: got back home; 6:05pm ~ 11pm: Quake time; 11pm ~ 11:15pm: shower and think about whether you should play one more level; 11:16pm: you decide to play another level; 11:17pm ~ 1am: oops you've played 3 levels already just go for it.

Summary: Firstly, having played some really inefficient Mac ports of PC games, I was pleased to find that Quake 4 runs surprisingly smoothly, and now with the latest patch, runs excellently on Intel Macs (love playing it on my MacBook Pro!). The graphics are excellent (same engine as Doom 3 I am told), and the gameplay is very involving and addictive - I often find myself playing into the small hours, telling myself "Just one more level...".
