    Where is it?

    Rated on December 26, 2005 by differentiation

    Quake II is a game more for the fans of the series rather than for casual FPS gamers. It is an improvement over the 1st game, and lays down some revolutionary stuff for future FPS back in the day. Som...

    Although it's a lot like Doom, except with a different name, Quake II is still an awesome game.

    Quake II... is awesome. Still fun after 10 years since it came out. Just moving through room after room, killing stuff. But it becomea so engaging once you start playing it. The only thing that is dis...

    This game had the storyline, that the others didn't!

    Rated on July 25, 2006 by Xenonixlv

    Let's start with Quake 1, which i think didn't have a story. There were soldiers , monsters and zombies that fought against you, but were totaly friendly to each other. In Quake II I liked the stor...

    A classic................. it was the main reason why I got into first person shooters in the first place!

    Rated on August 09, 2004 by j-miller

    First person shooters has always been my genre of choice, why you ask? Because of three things: Sophisticated AI, cool weapons and enemies, and loads of action. Although what seperates the good FPS fr...

    It's a complete fail as a sequel but nobody wanted to see that truth.

    Rated on September 09, 2004 by kinkyfriend_85

    In late 1997 this game came out, many had waited for it after they had played through the first Quake. Many would expect something of a carnage, something special. But this is what came out. This f...

    Quake 2 For PC. With my terribly old and weak computer, I've tried many games that would work well and fun to play, but it's usually one or the other. That's when I finally decided to play Quake II...

    One of the few FPS that will stand the test of time. Quake II is a classic, a landmark and a testament to greatness.

    Rated on June 06, 2005 by 043030

    There are few ground-breaking landmarks in gaming, revolutionary games that amaze and awe. Classics such as Half-Life, Half-Life 2, Halo and Doom have been bequeathed with this glory, and the Quake II...
