Quake 2 is another classic from id software.

While not modded quite as much as it's predecessor or Q3A, it is still a blast to play and the mod's on offer are bundles of fun. Just step into Quake 2 Rocket Arena, armed with the new and almighty rocket and rail gun and you will be gibbing for hours on end.

If you dig fast paced action, then load up the good ole Quake 2, fire up a mod or two and have some fun!

About Quake 2 with 0 comments by Saliva on Dec 19th, 2014

I've been putting lots of effort in mapping during the last couple of months and I've been receiving positive feedback about the work I've done so far. There are many new sections I've added to the map and I've spent a considerable amount of time to get the lighting just perfect. I've also connected more parts to give the player more choice as how to approach certain situations.

The project will consist of three maps in total. The layout of the first map is nearly finished. Next, I will need to spend some time on making every switch, elevator and door work and also add items and monsters.

Let's take a look at some screenshots:

The editor shot above shows a recently constructed part of the map. I chose a rusty style because this area serves as a disposal unit. This area will contain a very powerful item in a pool of acid. The player has a couple of choices: ignore the item, get the item and sacrifice a considerable amount of health or spend some extra time searching for a protective suit.

Here you can see a completed in-game screenshot of the area mentioned above. I've spend a considerable amount of time on the lighting in this part.

This is a different part of the map. As you can see, the style used here is somewhat different than the previous area. This area is representing a 'boiler room'.

Last but not least, I also made a video that shows how I build a new part of the map during the course of 45 minutes. It is fast forwarded a bit and I've added some music for your entertainment. You can check out the video here:

We are working on converting this game to the Source engine... (Half-Life 2 engine) You may be interested in the Quake II Source project.

I always wondered about the relation between Quake and Quake 2. I never understood how Quake 2 could be a Quake sequel. Quake 3: Arena however ties into both. You can play as Ranger or Grunt, and then there is Bitterman. If you look closely at your crashed ship in Quake 2, it bares the name "Bitterman." And of course there is Tank Junior like Tank in Quake 2.

I always thought that Quake was a Doom spinoff. Think about it. The government is doing experiments in inter-dimensional travel and basically open up the gates to hell. Even the helmet worn by the Quake guy resembles the helmet worn by the doom guy, except it has no glass or breathing apparatus. Both Doom and Quake have pentagrams, and other satanic stuff such as the level named "Satan's Dark Delight." Shub-Niggorath, is taken from Lovecraft, obviously, and though I haven't gotten around to reading it, I suppose that the shambler comes from Robert Bloch's Lovecraftian mythos story, "The Shambler From the Stars."
Actually Quake seems to bare a closer resemblance to Doom than to it's sequel.

quake2 = finest single-player FPS ever created. And yes, as far as I know, Quake1 dude was Ranger and none of the stories match at all.
