TTGamer has posted a new review of the PC version of Enemy Territory: Quake Wars. The game is an online multi-player, team-based shooter that takes players back in time to the Strogg invasion of Earth, the catalyst for the Quake series. The forces of Earth will face off against the evil Strogg in a violent struggle for survival, giving players the chance to aid either side in the battle for dominion of the planet. TTGamer gave the game a score of 9 out of 10.

From the review:

Of course, gaining 'XP' wouldn't be much of a big deal if it was just a meaningless number, so Splash Damage made sure to build on the original ET's system of granting upgrades to players based on XP, although this time around there definitely seem to be more on offer, or at least more important upgrades on offer. For instance, you can gain more accurate weapons and even a scope, increased running speed, more health, and other class related enhancements such as lower build times and quicker target acquiring times. It was very important if not down right vital that 'XP' mattered in this game and Splash Damage have done a grand job of making this so, as these upgrades truly come through on the battlefield. For example, the second you gain a scope for your Assault Rifle as a GDF Field Ops, you're basically capable of changing the tide of a fight from well behind the front lines. These XP upgrades and your XP number itself doesn't stick with your online account (although there is stat tracking), but it does span across an entire 'campaigns', four of which exist by default, each featuring three unique maps, which by the way are all nicely designed and well stocked with useful buildings and terrain, not to mention plenty of vehicles and air craft to drive or fly around in, such as the 'Titan' tank and 'Anansi' Helicopter for the GDF, or the imposing 'Cyclops' mech-warrior like machine and personal 'Icarus' jet packs for the Strogg.
Aspyr Media is currently hard at work on the Mac version of the game. The full review is available at the link below.
