Game Vortex reviews Enemy Territory: Quake Wars (PS3)

Ricky Tucker reports:
''Enemy Territory: Quake Wars is a port of the PC game of the same name which found praise with the PC audience last year. Although the PS3 port brings over everything that made the PC version great, it doesn't do much to win over console gamers.

Overall, Quake Wars isn't a bad looking game, though it isn't a shining moment for the PS3 either. Although characters and vehicles are modeled well, nearly every texture is a blurry mess that looks bad whether you're standing next to it or a few feet away. The same is true for levels; the blurry textures create a muddy landscape that isn't much to look at. Quake Wars also deals with some major framerate issues. While not as bad when playing online, the framerate tends to sputter and drop when too much is going on. During single-player games this isn't much of an issue, but it can ruin multiplayer games.

Sound is another low point. There isn't much in the way of music, leaving most of the in-battle soundtrack to be filled in with explosions and various types of gunfire. Neither carry any impact, drastically reducing the feeling of a large-scale battle that the game is trying to convey.''
