"Good, but not Wolfentstein: ET"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

If you have ever played Wolfenstein: ET, and you loved the fast paced team game that it was, you'll probably really like this. But the pace of this game is slowed considerably and with the addition of vehicles, it seems that a lot of the skill factor has been removed (which is good for new players). All in all a great game.

"tcnz cant spoil this one."
5 stars"

Great fun and even on tcnz's shitty dsl service it doesn't lag too much – ( 30 tick engine anyone? or is it 60 like prey? ) Well ballanced play and a few good local servers already. Please note on tcnz I can't see alot of the servers – switched to an orcon account and got 600 extra boxes including the quakewars.nz servers. Not sure why yet. All in all a better experience ( ie more fun – less pissed off b network issues ) than bf2142. A lot more depth than css. Next Is tf2 :) sweet.

"High-End High-Speed"
3 stars"

This game looks great, however due to the high-end machine it needs to run on to work well, and needing an EXCELLENT broadband connection it loses it's effectiveness. TF2, on the other hand, runs well on my machine, and plays well on my broadband connection with only 128KB up.

When High-Speed broadband grows on trees then this would be more enjoyable.

"Worth buying, entertaining on the whole."
4 stars"

A good game overall. Not recommended you buy this game if you have a slow broadband connection! At times it can lag really badly, and seems to lag when the host lags. Don't buy this if you expect it to be a campaign type edition of Quake as I did. Definately a rewarding game in large numbers online, but like all games has it's down points. Great game for those who like achievements and ranks that you can gradually earn over time. Once again, it's worth buying.

"Best game to date."
5 stars"

This game has to be the best online team game that I have ever played. I really like how you can choose between two opposing teams, and there is five characters on each team to choose from. Ranging from assault personal, medic's, engineers, and more which all perform their own set skills and duties. Flying vehicles, tanks and much more. I recommend this game to any who like a good online shoot up. and also a good way to meet new friends on the direct in game chat.

"Fairly Decent Multiplayer game"
3 stars"

ETQW is certainly best played with a bunch of people as the bots tend to suck.

The graphics are nice enough and the level of detail in the models are a nice touch for a primarily multiplayer game. The character classes and vehicles are all varied and useful in their specific roles. Classes are balanced to make teamwork a far more rewarding practice. Maps are nicely designed and offer lots of surprises and exploring for players as well as open spaces and roads so as not to handicap those who like vehicles.

All in all its a good game.

Description

Serving as the prequel to id Software’s legendary QUAKE II, Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars is the ultimate online team and objective-based multiplayer experience. Set within the epic QUAKE universe in the year 2065, the game pits the Allied troops of the Global Defense Force (GDF) against a new Axis of Evil – the barbaric and technologically advanced Strogg - during their initial invasion of Earth.

Gamers choose to play as Human or Strogg in one of five unique character classes. Employing an arsenal of weapons, vehicles and deployable armaments, players engage in an action-packed test of skill and coordinated teamwork through a series of combat objectives. Persistent character growth and achievements reward players for teamwork, while clearly defined mission and class objectives guide new players to meaningful contributions on the battlefield.

In development at Splash Damage, co-creators of the award winning Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, and in conjunction with id Software, Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars employs id Software’s new MegaTexture graphics technology, delivering large outdoor battlefields of unrivaled detail. These life-like recreations of real-world environments are designed specifically for objective-based team combat and include realistic terrain, lighting, special effects and atmospheric conditions.

  • Team-Based, Strategic Missions – Gameplay in Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars is all about conquering and securing enemy territory, and pushing forward or holding your team’s front line. Players must work together using their vehicles, deployables, and character class abilities to complete objectives, defend valuable installations, or execute massive assaults. The gameplay is designed to allow players of every skill level to jump into a match and make a sizeable contribution to the overall mission. Every player’s choice of character class, along with their actions play a critical role throughout as they gain rank, upgrade skills and provide specialist abilities necessary for victory.
  • Unique Teams and Character Classes – With “asymmetric gameplay,” the characters of both the GDF and the Strogg look, move, and behave uniquely. Bases, characters, vehicles and weapons demonstrate the different technologies and behavior of each side and require distinctive approaches to combat from each player. For example, a GDF Medic can heal and quickly revive injured or fallen soldiers on the field, while the Strogg Technician may use a GDF corpse as a “host” body for a waiting Strogg reinforcement. Similarly, the GDF Field Ops will deploy and call-in a laser-guided strategic strike missile, while the Strogg Opressor peppers a GDF convoy with his Plasma Mortar. Players can choose one of five character classes unique to each force, including the GDF’s Soldier, Field Ops, Engineer, Covert Ops and Medic, or the Strogg’s Aggressor, Opressor, Constructor, Infiltrator, and Technician.
  • Weapons, Vehicles, Deployables – The weapons, vehicles and deployables in Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars are much more than standard issue equipment. Each selection truly affects gameplay and is integral to a team’s success or failure. Set in the relative near future, the Human arsenal is based on ultramodern updates to today’s conventional Earth arsenal, while the Strogg utilize a more advanced technology suitable for conquering vastly different alien worlds. The GDF use weapons, and vehicles such as machine guns, rocket launchers, armored personnel carriers, and hover-copters, among others. Conversely, the Strogg’s technology is built on the manipulation of energy and gravity and includes assets like the Hyper Blaster, Lightening Gun, a giant mech-walker, a hover tank, vertical take-off and landing Hornet, and more. Players will also utilize unique strategic assets like radar, auto targeting anti-personnel or vehicle turrets, artillery or strategic strike missiles – all of which are realistically deployed onto the battlefield when and where you choose.
  • Ground-Breaking Technology – Using id Software’s new MegaTexture rendering technology, Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars renders large, highly detailed and un-tiled outdoor environments all the way to the horizon. Outdoor dynamic lighting allows for every battle to be fought during day or night, with accurate simulation of shadows, atmosphere, vegetation, and weather. Advanced real-time physics, and all new network code support large-scale military combat for up to 24 players through real-world locations, including deserts, glaciers, mountains, and countryside
