The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

The Strogg Are Back So Gear Up

Quake 4 for the 360 puts you in the shoes of a marine badass looking to kill some strogg also know as Kane. If you are a veteran of the Quake Franchise then you know that plenty of running of gunning is going to be going down as you play this action filled game.

Story of Quake 4 isnt very interesting so I am not going to go into detail about it, because all we care about is the shooting portion of the game and Quake 4 delivers it. Begining of the game can be a lil slow but once you get into it it will be carnage after that. Plenty of enemies to gun down as you are running down the hallways looking for that good old EXIT sign. Levels are pretty linear so dont worry bout getting lost, linear levels always seem like a problem for most gamers but in Quake 4 dont worry about that as the constant attac from strogg will keep your mind off of that and more on the fact that you are shot to hell from 15 baddies.

The enemies in Quake 4 are pretty detailed as and they come in many different types from the big baddies that do alot of damage tearing you apart with their claws to the normal types that just seem to stand back and shoot the **** out of ya.

Weaponly is pretty decent as you will get all your favorites suck as the shotgun, nailgun, hyperblaster, grenade launcher, pistol, rocket launcher ect: They added a new gun known as the Dark Matter Gun that just kills everything in its godforsaken path.

The multiplayer in quake 4 is horrible though as it only holds 8 players in one game and the maps in the multiplayer are horrificly bad. Ive only played 6 multiplayer games and believe me they just flat out suck. Its not even really worth playing the multiplayer portion of Quake 4 unless your after those nice little achievement points whick most of them lie within the multiplayer part of the game.

 Overall Quake 4 isnt worth buying but really worth renting as it is entertainment till you beat the game then Quake 4 should just properly go in the trash. So just give it a try and im sure you will be enjoying the single player portion of the game.
