Quake wars is a multiplayer-focused game much like the Battlefield series of games.
It added on to things such as choosing your own type of soldier and weapon, giving a bit more variety and numerous different abilities to each different class of soldier. However, the game is incredibly inconsistant. Multiplayer online tends to be very laggy, and getting stuck in the terrain is common, and you'll have to make yourself respawn in order to stop a glitch or un-stick yourself from the terrain.

Apart from the glitches, multiplayer modes are made to be played with a large number of human players. However, you will never find many other players on this game to play with, resulting in a shallow game with just a few players and bots on enourmous open-spaced maps.
The bots in the game can be turned on to substitute for a lack of players. Unfortunately, the mindless "run-and-gun" tactics the bots use is a very poor replacement for human-controlled characters. There is no legitimate single-player campaign in this game. Just the same mode as multiplayer-except only with the terrible AI.

The game also sounds quite horrible. I sensed no improvement on gun-sounds whatsoever, and if you are playing with bots, they constantly will be shouting at you with generic phrases that were intended to be used as a human player would use their mic, except this only makes the bots much more annoying to play with. I suggest you don't waste your time on this game.

ET: Quake wars has its ups, but unfortunatly its weighed down by its downs...
ok if you are looking for a great bot match, this is it. Oh or go rent shadowrun. Both have really good PVP simulation. However online both games struggle with lag as well as replayability. In the age where Halo can make a game that records your battles and forge allows you to build unique scenarios, This game is seriously lacking.
Some of the big bad issues. The feats system is non existent. You find yourself getting these awards flash on your screen, but then try and figure out what you have and what you can do with it, good luck. Also the tutorial sucks, and with a game as complex as this they could have taken a lesson from shadowrun and made a very detailed tutorial. ALSO there is no story line. The missions could have easily been streamlined into a seriously good story. But they didnt. ANd my last grief is the load times are long. not too long, but still having to wait more than thirty seconds for anything nowadays sux.

well thats my 2 cents, and with this game im gonna ask for my change back.
See u on live
