Im having a blast on Single Player. And while the multiplayer is hardly anything new... thats why I like it. Old Skool kill or be killed and no fruity crazp where anyone without skill can do good

Some elements of this game have been highly predictable. Namely that tech who helps you in the barrel place; I knew that he was going to die by the time you return; that was very obvious.

Another thing is when the rhino squad leader is knocked out and taken down that long shaft, the fact that he wasn't dead and that you were going to battle him later was extremely obvious.

On the plus side, the part where you fly your pod into the strogg building kicked ass Especially how you actually see what happens as you fly through the walls. Most games up til now would just show something along the lines of a black screen until its over.

I just finished this game last night. The last few levels seemed to drag on a bit, but all of the parts before that were awesome and made it worthwhile. Also be careful those who are playing the game on general mode - near the end the game puts you through several battles of your lifetime that I was suprised to be able to make it through

It's probably a good thing that I'm not in a profession that requires me to carry a gun. I was just playing Quake 4 a little while ago and was doing one of the escort missions. I ran up to one of the large metal doors and stopped waiting for it to open. The guy I was escorting finally caught up and his growing shadow on the door startled me. I probably emptied a clip before I realized I was shooting at a shadow. I guess it could have been worse, I could have emptied a clip shooting at my own shadow.

I finally got to drive the tank or whatever it is last night. That was a nice change of pace and I love the sound of it. I was cruising through the game in that thing until I hit the big red spider. I initially hoped I'd be faster than the spider and I'd defeat it that way but the dang missles keep getting me. So, I'm currently stuck...and trying not to cheat to get past it.

As a first tip, you can shoot down missiles with the tank's machine gun.

Also don't forget to aim for the legs, blowing up spider legs are fun. I thought the spider was a nice touch, and I enjoyed it a lot, just use the ground for cover, and use the machine gun a lot.

I guess I am late but I finally got it and I must say after all this time I am disappointed especially with the mp, sp is fine. It doesnt even feel like Quake at all. After all this time I really expected more. I dont see how true Quake fans can see this as great.
