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!

An excellent Single player FPS
This is my first quake, i play it when i was ten years old.
I still remember when i blown up an enforcer's head. My onli reaction was scream IT STILL ALIVE!!! and the rest was just shoot to his dead body xD
IMPRESSIVE

Exce-freaking-llent.

This is how you make an FPS. They dont make them like this anymore.
Non of that 2 gun limit, regenerating health nonsense. Non of that waiting for npcs to open doors for you. You go at your own pace, no time to waste.

Alot of weapons and items to pickup.
Good music
Non linear level
Secrets to find if you explore. You dont have to worry about a message telling you to "get back in the combat zone" ◔_◔

Flaws:
map system is not great, graphics are old and alot of doors/walls look the same
selecting/using items are more complicated than they need to be
saving the keys you remap can be a problem

In 2015 this game still holds up.

Although it has absolutely nothing to do with the first quake it is another classic first person shooter. recommend getting this game and its expansion packs!

not as good as first

Ditto.

Quake II was for me the very pinnacle of a great FPS. Quake I had the slow medieval ambience and spooky nine inch nails provided soundscapes but the lost marine storyline of Quake II took the game leaps and bounds further.
From the very offset there is no let-up in action, you were sent to fight and even though the mission has now gone to hell, fight you must.
The landscape and wealth of visual treats the gaming environment provides never gives up and it is clear to see that most other FPS's (half-life) included looked to quake to as the basis for a thrilling and involved gaming landscape.
The ubiquitous arsenal of weapons is never really better kitted out than any other game and, as always, the shotgun (or rather super shotgun in this iteration of the quake universe) should be the discerning strogg-smashers choice of weapon.
But let us not forget the amazing force of the now reverential 'rail-gun', this thing turns your enemies to goo at the simple click of a mouse, pure gory brilliance! Past this should you find it there is fun-yet-mostly-useless BFG (That's big effin' gun to you and I) which packs more punch than Mike Tyson's home-made chilli sauce but is about as palatable.
The enemies are varied, strong and often difficult and their AI is surprisingly advanced for a game of this age.
In essence this is (you'll notice I'm attempting to ignore the Doom franchise) the quinticential godfather of FPS, great visuals, good story, awesome arsenal. What more could you want?
