Summary: Quake 2 had big shoes to fill, and it did so magnificently. Quake 2 is set in the future on an alien world, with a whole new set of weapons and enemies. While I preferred the dark castle theme of Quake 1, it was nice that Quake 2 went a different direction instead of rehashing its predecessor. Most of Quake 2's lasting value comes from its well-designed network code and modding abilit y. Even back in the days of 56kbps modems, 16-player online games worked great.
Summary: This game is part of my childhood. I went from Doom 1 & 2 to this and then Half-Life. Needless to say this (like almost every id game) is a gem and you should at least try it out because it's a piece of gaming history.
Summary: 2 new episodes, loads of new weapons and ammo types (plus all the weapons and powerups from the previous expansion), better & brighter map design, and loads more music with almost every level having it's own track. Armagon was excellent for all the new stuff it added and this one continues to build on it. If these two missions packs were released today they'd be $30 DLC (or a brand-new gam e considering how CoD is).
Summary: Quake 2 only shares the names with his precedent. The underworld atmospheres with NIN ambient music are gone and the set now is the space stations with rock n' roll soundtrack. Even if is not palpable and remarkable as the original game, Quake 2 works anyway, being one of the greatest shooters at time. A long and enjoyable game provides challenge with great variation of weapons, enemies an d levels.
Summary: How do I explain this game? Quake has always been the best PC game series for me, and Quake II has the best singleplayer game in the series(Quake III Arena had the best multiplayer). I remember when me and my buddy Daniel would play this game non-stop (we even beat the game together)! I remember always using the Railgun to blow enemies' heads off!
Summary: Something went terribly wrong at id software from Quake to Quake II. The Quake II graphics are ok at best (even for the time period), the movement does not seem to be as good as the original Quake, some of the levels were confusing. Quake II is fun, but not as much fun as the original.
