Quake 4 review

  • Multiplayer still kicks ass
  • Spiffy graphics
  • Vehicles offer variety
  • Single-player story goes nowhere
  • Creepy facial animations
  • Uninteresting weapons

But is that expecting too much? Quake 4 was designed to make things go boom and look pretty doing it. On that level, it succeeds, but no better or worse than any other first-person shooter. The robust multiplayer still lives up to the Quake legacy, but as a single-player experience, Quake 4 could have been a lot more ambitious and, in turn, a lot more satisfying.

    this game is great. personally, i prefer the single player campaign to online battling. it does have a story-line but you have to listen to everyone whenever they talk. there actually is a pretty big story in the background.
