Summary: Enemy Territory: Quake Wars is an objective-based FPS set in the Quake universe. At least, I think it is supposed to be the Quake universe, but the only thing this game has in common with “Quake” is the title.
Conclusion: But I’ve saved the worst for last. Universe at War looks and performs horribly. The graphics are awful and grainy, and units are often too small to readily identify. The maps are drab and lifeless and worst of all, the framerate chugs like the Chattanooga Choo Choo.
Excerpt: Developed by Splash Damage and published by id Software, Enemy Territory: Quake Wars (shortened to Quake Wars) is an interesting spin-off of the popular arena shooter series Quake. This title takes the fast-paced action of Quake and combines it with more strategic elements similar to Battlefield’s.
Summary: Enemy Territory: Quake Wars fails on one level and an succeeds on the other. The single player offline mode pretty weak. There are only monotonous battles that you will grow tired with over time.
Excerpt: Enemy Territory: Quake Wars is a first person shooter that�s based on the Quake series. The game is a port of the 2007 PC version and is similar to the Battlefield series. There isn�t much of a narrative to accompany the single player game.
Conclusion: At the end of it all, Enemy Territory: Quake Wars is one of those games you want to like, but can’t. You want to say “Hey, it’s not you, it’s me”, but you can’t do that either. Just about the only thing you can do is play, enjoy it as much as you can and give it a pat on the back for trying.
Excerpt: From start-up, you’re presented with a loading bar, leading to a (pleasant looking) pre-rendered cinematic, explaining Earth’s current plight as they’re invaded by the Strogg, an alien race constructed from other alien races.
Conclusion: Enemy Territory Quake Wars is not a bad game, but frankly the version that came out on the PC months ago exceeds the console offerings. No new content, an inferior release, and a significantly higher price tag equals makes me want to ask “what the...?
Summary: If you put in enough time you can have a lot of fun playing Activision's newest team-based first-person shooter. The problem is that this Xbox 360 port of Enemy Territory: Quake Wars comes up short in comparison to the PC original.
Excerpt: Delayed. A word strong enough to reduce the most ardent gamers to gibbering wrecks as a wave of disgruntled grumbles and groans emanate across gaming forums. In the constantly evolving games market, a lot of things can change in a year. And they have.
