OXM UK: Enemy Territory: Quake Wars Preview

OXM UK writes: "The Strogg are coming and they want you to join them. Not necessarily, all of you though, maybe just your spleen, brain and a limb or two.

Enemy Territory: Quake Wars is a prequel to the bloody saga seen in Quake II and IV. Playing as either the Strogg or the human Global Defence Force, you have to complete very specific mission objectives which change from map to map. And whether you can achieve your goals will depend entirely on selecting the right character class for the job.

It's Battlefield 2 with a flavour that only id Software could add, namely brilliant sci-fi weapons and game play so blisteringly fast that you hardly have time to blink. Admittedly our first few games felt a little strange, simply because we're so used to playing Quake in claustrophobic indoor arenas. It also surprised us to be battling the futuristic Strogg with such conventional weaponry - tanks, quad bikes and helicopters that wouldn't be out of place in COD4."

The story is too old to be commented.

This game wasn't successful on PC. I have no idea why, but I don't remember hearing about it alot last year and its coming at a very wrong time on consoles, when we will have heavy hitters like Gears2, Killzone2, Resistance 2, Socom, MGO, Battlefield Bad Company, Agency, Haze etc. already coming this year on consoles.
