Macworld's Game Room has posted another review, this time focusing on the recently released Mac version of Quake 4. The game puts players in the role of Matthew Kane as he and his fellow soldiers battle the destructive forces of the Strogg. The Game Room gave Quake 4 a score of 4 out of 5 mice.
From the review:
The first three installments of the Quake franchise had very little in common with each other. The first was a techno-gothic monster shooter; the second was a straight-up sci-fi action game; and the third was an arena-based multiplayer game. Quake 4 actually picks up the story of Quake 2—you return as a human space Marine assaulting the homeworld of the Strogg—these nasty cybernetic aliens look like Star Trek’s Borg on growth hormones.To read the full review click on the link below.
Macworld Game Room: Quake 4 Review
While a technically impressive game, Doom 3’s level design and overall gameplay style left a lot of first-person shooter enthusiasts wanting. That game was prone to way too many dark rooms and spots where you’d get ambushed by monsters—that’s great for a haunted house attraction at Halloween, but it doesn’t exactly make for compelling gameplay. Quake 4 doesn’t fall into that trap—most spots are well lit enough to see. And when they aren’t, your weapons often have flashlights so you can see what you’re doing in the dark.
