Sorry folks; I don't know where this 6.7 rating is coming from (Game Fly) but in my opinion this one of THE BEST GAMES I HAVE PLAYED IN YEARS!!! Halo 2.....you don't even come close!! Maybe it's just me and my own personal preferences...but I think Quake 4 deserves a 10+....excellent shooter game...my favorite! Bud Candia NH

At first look this game is totally where it's at. Then after a few hours, once you've gotten over the sweet sound of the nailgun pentetrating your ears, you realize you've been doing the same things again, and again, and again.
Gameplay is where it's at and this game has pretty much one mode. It starts like this-- Go into a dark room with wires and biomechanics all over, kill the strogg, find a switch, repeat. Again, and again, and again. With the exception of a few very short trips in some vehicles, that's all you do. The scenery and challenges do not change much. Just one hallway after another and they all look the same.
Perhaps the worst part of this game is the loading time. Every time you die the level must completely reload. I'm not talking 10-20 seconds either. More like 1-2 minutes each time. If you get yourself into a difficult situation, with little ammo, expect to spend a lot of time twiddling your thumbs and staring at the halo 2ish loading screen.
In other words, don't buy, rent, or put this game on that birthday list your mommy asked you for.
I absolutely loved this game and am so glad that I purchased it. The controls are fluid and easy to learn. The graphics really show off the 360s capabilities and the multiplayer smorgisboard that everyone wants. I actually cant find anything bad so say about this one guys. So stop reading the reviews and rent it already!!!
