What i was waiting for.
What a game, the emphasis on this game obviously was the single player, which indeed is awesome. It starts directly after Quake 2, which is a good thing even though that game has a fair few years behind it. Earth forces return again to battle the Stogg, a cybernetic race which is bent on destroying Humans. After the death of the Makeron in Quake 2 and with the assumption of earth forces that Strogg forces would be in disarray following the death of their previous leader(the Makeron), proved to be wrong. So, earth returns again in a much grand scale to their last attempt to stop the Strogg from wiping out Humanity.
You, are Matthew Kane one of Earths best soldiers in an elite fighting squad named Rhino. Your job is of course to assist in the destruction of the newly created Makeron and the Strogg, the game itself starts off pretty hectic. With a fair amount of assistance from co-soldiers. This does start to dwindle abit later during the course of the campaign, but still this remains to be a solid fps.
You are basically armed with all the weapons from Quake 2(except from a couple), obviously updated, but they keep the names of the originals(Hyper Blaster, Chain gun etc..). The game offers superb voice acting, which is lent by some of Hollywoods fine actors. Now those of you wondering if its just a Doom 3 rip off or anything like that, let me tell you, your wrong. This game has more action(which it was supposed to be)a better story line, better looking guns, better scripted events, HUMAN INTERACTION.
It has it's fair share of scares(hardly as much as Doom 3) and nifty scripted scenes, but does turn out to be a one man show towards the end. All in all this is a excellent game that all fps vets should have on their shelfs. If i was to sum up this game i would give it 9/10 it really is that good. SO GO BUY IT.
