I have just come into possession of a copy of Quake 4 http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/icon_twisted.gif It's a great game, with a very strong singe player campaign. In some aspects, it has a Doom 3 essence to it, in terms of lots of dark corridors and such. Graphics are beautiful, with my X850 it runs smoothly in nearly all areas with AA on. Squad work is good, you can get healing from medics and techs (will replenish armour). Of course, there is also the uber strong one man army sorta stuff too. However, mulitplayer is much different, it still retains an individual style that Quake 3 had. Tip: Don't play SP at night with the lights off, images tend to keep in your head once you go to bed http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

SP: Doom 3 with friends
MP: Fun fun fun

I'll get some screenshots up later http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif Imageshack is down at the moment.

That's the best part about that sort of game, I love the results of a long session of any of the Thief series played in the dark with headphones on http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Haha you wear brown underpants? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Some of the cutscenes in this game are f****** brilliant, for example being in a drop pod shot off a cruiser onto a planet, watching other planes go past then smashing into a building run baddies down and such. Very entertaining http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/icon_twisted.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I play it here n there, but only MP, and I only like the rail gun only mod. Very slow rate of fire and 1 hit equals one death makes it more challenging. But it's very repetitive, and I'm starting to find it boring already.
