Excerpt: Quake 2 is the best first-person shooter I have ever played. I guess I should buy Quake 3! Having played Quake 1 (the gypsy-esque shareware version) on my PC, and experienced deathmatch first-hand against my friend, I went out and bought QII for the PSX as soon as i could. It was platinum, and from the multi player mode alone I knew I would be getting great value for money. I was not dissapointed at all.
Excerpt: Quake 2 After playing and very much enjoying Unreal tournament on my PC, I decided the playstation couldn’t possibly match his! A couple of weeks later I was playing on my friends playstation, when he brought long quake 2. I was playing Duke Nukem at the time and refused to believe quake was better, despite his persistent reassurances. It took all of 3 minutes to decide that I had found the game I had been looking for!
Excerpt: I was truly amazed that a half decent fps shooter could be done on the psx. I mean 2meg and 33mhz is not particularly impressive compared to the 16meg 200mhz minimum pcs that first played it. Thats not to say its perfect but all its faults are down to the limitations of the console. The game pauses between subsections to load new level data. This happens a lot but is understandable and although irritating its not too bad.
Pros: A great technical achievement and a very playable game .
Excerpt: Quake2 one of my fav games on the playstation. Guns, blood and fun. Quake2 is a first person shoot, you can play a one player game against alien creatures using your wit and strength against the computer or use the guns supplied throughout the levels to blow your mates head apart. Even better buy a multitap and you and three friends can do battle to the death by any means, to kill kill kill and more importantly survive.
Pros: Nice weapons, blood and guts, good fast fighting, great multiplayer game .
Excerpt: Quake 2 is a first person shooter and on one player can get a little boring after a while. The levels are too easy and it just starts to get repetative. This is one of the games on the playstation which can have the 4 player option. And what an option it is. I would buy this game just for the multiplayer mode so you can have huge battles with your friends and family. Huge array of weaponary and a good selection of levels makes this game one of my mulitplayer favourites.
Pros: great multiplayer
Cons: split screen 4 way so the screen is pretty small for each player
Excerpt: This game is a mediocre game it has tried to cash in on the Quake brand name but a game like this should be left on the PC its graphics are very glitchy with glitchs in the walls and the enemies are very blocky and square. The guns graphics are okay and there effects are quite impressive.
Summary: Hablamos ahora de Quake, uno de los shooters más famosos de todos los tiempos, concebido para jugar en Pc, pero que tuvo sus adaptaciones para varias videoconsolas. Play Station disfrutaría de una versión bastante lograda de la segunda parte que pasamos a analizar. Volviendo a jugar tengo qu edecir que el juego aún me sorprende.
Excerpt: Munitevi di lancia missili e mirate ai vostri piedi, saltate e sparate, con un po’ di allenamento riuscirete a scegliere l’angolatura giusta per raggiungere punti che prima sembravano irraggiungibili. Fate sempre attenzione ad eseguire tali manovre state infatti maneggiando esplosivi ad alto potenziale ed ogni volta perdete un po’ di salute. Nei combattimenti ricordatevi di usare granate e missili a lungo raggio, puntate ai piedi ...
Summary: Uno de los clasicos del arcade en primera persona junto con Doom y Duke Nukem, y sin duda, uno de los juegos mas entretenidos que puede haber cuando te reunes con unos cuantos amigetes para jugar a la playstation. Y es que si algo destaca en este juego, es la posibilidad de combatir hasta cuatro jugadores a la vez, sin necesidad de conectar dos consolas.
Excerpt: Nonostante sia presentato con tanto di trama e background molto particolari, resta semplicemente uno sparatutto ad esplorazione con pochi elementi di strategia, intesa come scoprire nuovi passaggi o eliminare il nemico in un modo piuttosto che in un altro. L'atmosfera cupa pervade tutto il gioco che gode di ottima grafica associata ad una buona giocabilità. Sono presenti una buona varietà di mostri ed una altrettanta varietà di armi con cui sconfiggerli. ...
