Cons: graphics engine not optimized. Games suffers major framerate slowdowns in both campaign and multiplayer. Multiplayer especially is particularly disappointing because of the stuttering. The graphics are not any better than Quake 3 so this should play buttery smooth on the X360
Conclusion: I've only played the demo on multiplayer, but I have to say that these are some of the worst graphics I've ever experienced since 3d games hit the market over 10 years ago. They can be compared to Unreal Tournament for the dreamcast, only with a far worse frame rate. An absolute laughing stock. The sounds are choppy, the animations are a joke. The framerate sits at about 5 fps with a few other players bouncing around the arena. The physics are absolute zilch.
Summary: Description did not mention that this was the 2012 reissue, the major difference being that it does not come with the "Making of" DVD that contains the Xbox 360-compatible version of Quake 2. As this disk was the impetus for my order, this was extremely disappointing. Oh, and Quake 4 is mediocre. Unispired gameplay and this reissue does not fix the poor performance and slowdown. A poor use of 20 dollars.
Summary: If you want a good 1st person shooter.....go for Call of Duty 2. Quake 4, might have been called 'Yet More Quake'. I give it 2 stars as it's probably better than perfect dark, but not by much. Again, it seems to be quite an average game, not moved on much since quake! Heck, I've changed my mind, I'll give it one and half stars. Heck, now I'm rounding it down.
Summary: kjedelig, løper kun rund i trange ganger, møter så og si de samme fiendene hele tida(unntatt bosser), kan ikke skyte i stykker noe som helst i miljøet,grått og svat og til tider mørkt, fiendene går poff etter du har skutt dem. råtøffe gode våpen, men hadde ønska spillet var bedre slik at du kunne unytte våpena bedre,skyter du med raketter i de trange gangene så kan du selv dø fort, og du dør veldig unaturlig fort, 125 hp går ned til 60 hp fort hvis du blir slått og...
Summary: Hier mal wieder eine von diesen - von vielen für unnötig befundenen - 1-Stern-Hass-Bewertungen: Zunächst mal Kritik an Amazon: Quake 4 zu dem Preis zu verkaufen? Hallo, gehts noch? Ausserdem verstehe ich nicht was die Bewertung "Wie Lustig ist dieses Spiel" soll!?! So und nun zum Spiel. Quake 1-3 waren echt sehr gute Spiele, demnach war ich auf den 4. Teil überaus gespannt. Leider kam dann schnell die Enttäuschung überhaupt: Die deutsche Version ist CUT!
