Not that Great.. Actually, Not that Great at All...

I have a MacBookPro that I bought last year, 2.3 Ghz i5 processor, 4GB Ram, Intel HDGraphics 3000. The game plays smoothly at the highest settings. When I bought the game I didn't really know what to expect other than that it's a first person shooter game. I saw all the 5-star ratings and I was like, ok, I gotta try this, because I've played many other types of first-person games like this (like Halo, COD, even Elder Scrolls, etc.). With that said, my expectations may have been too high. First, the graphics are unimpressive. It feels very 1999-ish… very DOOM-ish. This was disappointing, but awesome multiplayer gameplay would have made up the difference… but it didn't. Hardly anyone is online playing multiplayer at any given time! I wouldn't really have felt the need to leave a 2-star rating were it not the fact that there are so many 5-star ratings that skew reality. I'm just throwing my two-cents in here to put some balance (and reality) into the picture.

Get Your Wallet Out… Now

Great game. The lighting is AMAZING and the graphics are not as great but are still top notch. The audio is really good as well; bravo to the voice actor(s) of The Makron. his voice(s) make me wanna go hide in the corner and cry. The single player has a nice story and gameplay but i cant seem to get the multiplayer to even work. (which i am disappointed in because i really really liked the multiplayer in Quake II). not to mention it took like 3 hours to download, but the game itself is great. And for those of you who critic games on their performance, The game runs great on maximum graphical settings and i have an OLD laptop from like 2004 or something. Great game overall but i wish the multiplayer would work for me; definitely worth the 20 bucks

First person shooter that works just great

Running on my macbook pro 2010 with video card and it works just fine in full screen mode. All commands and movements are just like Doom 3. Of course Doom 3 and Quake use the same engine. I haven't figured out how to turn captions on, if you can, so I can play with the sound off. For the price, if you like first person shooting games, it is great. Not sure about the bad review about not having BOTS. Plenty of different monsters to come after you. The gore is a bit much, for sure not for the under about 12 years old I think. I have only played the first landing area, but having other people cover my six is a great idea. I even save a few guys and they stick around and help me.
