Summary: This game is awesome! I haven't played it in soooo long, but the second you play it you'll be sucked back into the world of '99 when the FPS scene was evolving :) Many an hour was clocked into UT, Q3, CS, and HL. I'm glad I bought the best kind of PS3 (slims and new fat's suuuuuuck), a HW BC capable one, because now I can enjoy allllll of the beautiful FPS classics that released on the PS2, new games now-a-days don't fill that gaming emptiness that they used to, maybe it...
Summary: I read such glowing reviews of this game that I went out and bought it without giving it a test drive. This has to be without a doubt the most boring game that I have ever played. The graphics are below average and the game speed is so fast that you basically run around hoping to gather two frags before dying and starting over. I normally am a big Activision fan, but I feel like this genre is not really where their game designing strength lies.
Summary: I didn't find the controlls to be clumsy. I happen to like movement/straife on the left and look on the right analog. Many people I know however, don't. Other than that, the game is an excellent challenge when put on the easiest level. Make sure you have your memory card, which they don't seem to be able to stock anywhere in Louisville, Kentucky. I love the graphics, moveability, weapons, and enemies.
Summary: I don't see why so many people hate this game. In my opinion there seems to be alot of biased reviewers. The game is fast, bloody, and kicks a**. First person shooters are not usually my favorite thing but I bought this one and I love it. The story gets kind of old after a while and the weapons get boring but tats only during single player. The real fun started during multiplay with some friends.
Summary: This game is fun to play when you have some friends over. However it takes five to ten minutes to load and it loads after every screen. The gameplay is fun but there aren't alot of weapons and you run out of ammo pretty quick. The characters look pretty 2D. If your looking for a shootem up game go with Unreal.
Summary: I was originally going to get the Dreamcast version of Quake III Arena because of its keyboard and mouse support, but I'm glad I got this instead. The new "campaign" mode is little more than isolated matches with rudimentary stat-building, but the gameplay is still great. The minor autoaim (similar to that seen in Serious Sam) solved the biggest problem I had with the PC version: the difficulty of hitting targets despite having the precision of a mouse.
It's a first person shooter, what did you expected?

Summary: Quake has been known as being one of the best in the relm of first person shooters. For the most part I agree. It holds your attention, provides hours of decent gameplay, and keeps you coming back for more. However like many first person shooters of it's time it followed the typical sci-fi feel. With games like Half Life,Aliens vs Predator, Unreal it just seems to hit on the nail that it is a sci-fi game. Thus we get some easily recognizable feel.
