Quake 4 Reviewed
7:56 AM | Anthony Wang | Comment on this story

Applelinks has posted a review of the action shooter, Quake 4. Quake 4 is the latest game from Raven Software, sequel to Quake II, and the the review praises the game for taking the best parts of a first person shooter and enhancing them for a solid gaming experience.

Quake 4 doesn't advance the first-person shooter in any way, but that's fine; I believe that part of the continuing popularity in first-person shooters is their familiarity—gamers can install them and start playing without reading a manual or bothering to learn new controls. What Quake 4 does do is take most of the important elements in games of this type and polish them all up to a nice shine. The game is simply well developed, and it plays as if the developers at Raven had gripes about other first-person shooters and set to create one that corrected them. I mean, if they created a bio-mutant zombie Nazi alien first-person shooter that I can enjoy, then I can only imagine what genre fans will think of it.
Please follow the links below to read the review and to learn more information.
