QUAKE 4 GAMEPLAY PERFORMANCE
Quake 4 gameplay takes place at the beginning of the game as you enter the main complex in the Air Defense Bunker level. The walkthrough takes approximately two minutes to complete and concludes when you meet up with the Badger Squad.
The lowest frame rate occurs in the scene below. A 320x240 MPEG-1 video/audio clip of the entire Quake 4 gameplay scenario can be viewed using this link (~ 22MB). A shorter clip, which contains the first 15 seconds of the walkthrough, can be viewed using this link (~3MB).
