The single player game play is very fun. The story picks up right after quake 2 and takes in a very good direction. The characters area little lacking, but fun none the less. You also find yourself out to be an enigma, you have a past and it is a mystery for most of the game. The weapons are something new and old. Pretty standard for the type of game, some powerhouses and some kinda basic. The most interesting was the exchange for the bfg to the dark matter gun. Very interesting use of physics there. The game does keep things interesting and almost always changing. You start the game as a solider as part of unit amidst a war. Over time it goes slowly but surely into a complete horror show as you are shown in many ways what humans are used for by the strogg. Probably one of the more graphic games in existence. The game is fun, pure and simple.
Multiplayer is also fun, but is very old school. No twists, no frills, 100 percent old school, run and gun, blow people up and watch the chunks fly type killing fest. Very fun if you like that type, if not you will not be very impressed. So far xbox live is fun, but seems to like the halo style online system, meaning it doesn't always give you the best connection possible. Sometimes you will get laggy games because of this, but if the connections are good and you have enough people, the games will be intense and fly!
Overall a good game, intense at times and partially old school. Not for everyone though as the graphic nature of it may offend ano not everyone will love the old school feel.
