What happened?

I wanted to see how this ended up on the 360 after playing it on the PC. It was so awesome on the PC. And what gets me is they had well over a year to perfect it on the console and it ended up horrible, in comparison. The graphics are OK, where the PC version looked legendary. The controls are sloppy and limited. You've got all the same missions and the benefit of X Box Live. I was pretty dissapointed. If you have a decent PC get this for the PC if you're a Quake fan, otherwise it's worth checking out. You can rip around with bots if nobody is on. You've got 2 sides. The GDF and the Strogg. Each with their own respective weapons and tools which correspond with each sides objectives. This game has a few different types of vehicles. The Strogg vehicles are actually very fun, the GDF are pretty bland, but if you can pilot the helicopter you've got it made. I had issues with accuracy. It was rediculous, on medium the Strogg bots strafed liked some kind of insane gaming professional. It was tottally unrealistic and annoying. You couldn't hit em' no matter what. They were pretty dumb, until they finally did come after you then you were toast. Point is, this is a great game with alot of potential but lost so much luster in the change over from PC to console. PC games used to be so much more advanced than console games, now they make games with the console in mind instead of the PC and you've got limits on everything. It's barely even worth owning a gaming PC anymore. Hopefully Doom 4 and Rage will change that.

RENT ME ONLY!!!

This is a rent me game. It's a shooter like Battlefield 1943 style, you have several classes to choose from and several vehicles you can operate, although there are some cool things you can do like paint target with lazers, it feels poorly executed and very rarely it will have any effect on the battlefield tactics. The game physics feel outdated, the sights don't move when you run, and there is no muzzle rise from recoil. You can get some entertainment out of single player campaign, killing bots by the hundreds can be rewarding if somewhat repetative. Good luck finding anyone on line to play with, i've had the game for a week and never saw more that 3 people in game lobby.

Just rent it for a couple of achievment points or stay away for good.

This game has not much to say. You go around the world either trying to save the world as the G.D.F. or trying destroy the world as Stroggs. The controls are familier, but frustrating at times. The graphics seem really familier to Quake 4. The game has no story, no polish, no fun. The multiplayer-like single player does not work. I have not tried the multiplayer but I don't think I will. Don't try this game.
