Quake 4 Examined
8:15 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

Strategy Informer has posted a review of the PC version of Quake 4. The latest in the popular first person shooter franchise, Q4 makes use of the Doom 3 engine to deliver a greater graphical punch and follows the exploits of Corporal Matthew Kane in his battle against the deadly Strogg. The game earned an 8.3 out of 10 from Strategy Informer.

From the review:

Another fun thing is that a large portion of the game will be fought side by side with other marines. Some providing pure firepower, and some healing you or replenishing your armor. The AI is pretty good, nothing special, but also nothing that would irritate you. For instance, teammates ducking behind crates as you open a door, or enemies finding cover in between shots. All this really makes you feel like you're a part of the game, a quality rarely seen in FPS games. I guess it would be in order to mention the vehicles. I think one word is sufficient to describe the vehicle levels of the game; boring. The game could've done very well without it, but I guess not everything can be perfect.
The Mac version, courtesy of Aspyr Media, should be available sometime in March. It can be pre-ordered from at Macgamestore.com.
