I don't mean I won't play IV, I'm just not that hyped about Ravenware. :D

Earth is under siege by an alien race. The Strogg are cybernetic warriors--a mechanical frame and decaying body parts stabilized by flesh consumed in a systematic annihilation of other species and civilizations. In a desperate attempt to survive a Strogg attack on Earth, an armada of Earth's finest warriors is sent to take the battle to the Strogg home planet. Earth's initial assault force is nearly annihilated immediately, but one marine manages to infiltrate the base, bring down their planetary defense systems, and kill the Strogg's collective brain and leader--the Makron. Earth assumed the destruction of the Makron would end it all, but it didn't.

 

That's where Quake II leaves off and Quake 4 begins.

 

The Strogg are quickly regrouping. However, with the Strogg

I read a preview for this last year.

 

It sounds like this time they've used the Doom 3 engine to make some large topside worlds, and the screenshots looked really nice, even back then.

 

 

Also, halfway through the game or so, you get captured and taken to the Strogg 'manufacturing line, where you get turned partway into a Strogg, but are rescued before being made part of the overmind.

I want Half-Life 2 lighting with Doom 3 shadows in one game. :(

 

 

 

The "unified lighting and shadowing" part of the engine is capable of much more advanced light effects than Hl2, it will be very interesting to see what they did with the outdoors areas in Q4..

Had a lot of fun playing Quake II years ago. I'd be stoked about this if I had a PC that could run the game.

I took this job because I thought you were just a legend. Just a story. A story to scare little kids. But you're the real deal. The demon who dares to challenge God.

So what the hell do you want? Don't seem to me like you're out to make this stinkin' world a better place. Why you gotta kill all my men? Why you gotta kill me?

Nothing personal. It's just revenge.

Here is the check for system resources:

http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/refer..._option_id=2046

 

There are some problems with it, and you need to permit pop-ups for the site to let the ActiveX plug-in run (it's verified by Verisign as valid).

 

My SPI hardware firewall wouldn't let it through, however (or was it my Norton Personal firewall). Anyways, I didn't think it was worth it to re-configure my firewalls, so I don't know what my system is rated at, but others have reported inconsistent results.

 

If you can run Doom 3 and / or Half-Life 2 then you won't have a problem, though, as it runs on the Doom 3 engine.

But there is a big warning; you might be able to run the game without normalmaps on a low-end computer but since the graphics rely on normalmapping to such a huge extent, youll miss everything.

 

 

Its like some brainiac I met:

-I didnt think Doom3 looked anything special.

-No?

-Nah, pretty low-poly too.. Hl2 pwns it

-Do you have normalmaps swicthed off?

-Yeah, why?

-Gah.. :rolleyes:

IIRC Quake II required more from the pc, relative to the time, than Doom 3 ever did. (E.g. it was the first game with bloom effects, afaik.)

I just heard that Quake 4 got a devastatingly 70% in the newest PC GAMER Issue.

 

Final Verdict:

 

Highs - Loads of action; gruesome visuals; Q3DM17 with Doom 3 graphics

 

Lows - Uninspired gameplay; Stroggification plot twist goes nowhere; no multiplayer bots.

 

Bottom line - This old-school shooter suffers from a lack of 21st-century game design.

 

LOL. That's the reason why old-school devs suck. A franchise alone doesn't make a game good.

Yup, it was the same with Q3.. I dont think I made it longer than 1/3rd before I got too bored to keep playing. I read that ID didnt initially want to make D3 but the popularity of Wolfenstein made them change their minds and so they added a game to the engine :rolleyes:

 

 

just for no reason at all:

So "normal maps" is some sort of "High" Definition Rendering?

 

I read that the HDR of Half-Life 2's Lost Coast is more Medium than High. Sounds fairly plausible, considering that it is software generated, like the earliest 3d rendering was done by the CPU before Voodoo cards were widespread ...
