Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Q4 is really a long awaited continuation of the very successful Q2. Those of us that enjoyed Q2 immensely, and were very disappointed that Q3 had no single player, have been waiting long for another chance to reek havoc on the Strogg homeworld!

The look of Q4 is a perfect blend of old and new. The designers did an exceptional job in designing the new game to be a fresh experience, while maintaining the essence from Q2. The same dark industrial look of Q2 is brilliantly carried into Q4. The Strogg supply boxes we have all come to know, and hide behind, are just one of the environmental elements carried over. Deadly red laser beams, massive hatches, pipes and bridges. The feel of being in the belly of an industrial war machine is palpable! The overall scale of the single player world is massive! Though most of the fighting takes place in dark, some times cramped interiors, there are many good sized areas and even a few battles that take place in large outdoor areas (With heavy war machines). Be warned though, if you hate elevators, there are many, many, many lifts!! I would give Q4 a 10 out of 10 for blending the old with the new to create a truly immersive single player environment!

Compared to other games like Halo (Not really fair) about a 7 out of 10.

As for the single player path, again this is a continuation and improvement on Q2. I have always been partial to the mission based single player path. Q2 was great in this respect, with the computer constantly updating you as to your next mission. Q4 is a quantum leap in this area! Yes you could get annoyed with the "Mouse in the maze" way that you are directed down the path, i.e. there is only really one way to go at any one time. But this is nicely tempered by the awesome effects and animations!

4.0 out of 5 stars I'm not your typical player, but this is fun! January 26, 2009
Platform for Display:Mac|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
As a middle aged woman, who is just returning to college, I'm really not your typical game player. I have Quake 4 for my Mac laptop, OSX 10.5.6, and it runs just fine. I'm not really into gaming that much, I was just curious what all the fuss was about. I've sort of surprised myself by really getting into it! The graphics are good, the sound great, and the general game atmosphere is pretty ominous, and sometimes downright scary! I'll admit, sometimes I just have to stop for a minute. I don't really have much to compare it too, although I have played Alien vs. Predator on my PC, and didn't enjoy it nearly as much. So my review? It's a fun way to take a break from actually working on the computer.

5.0 out of 5 stars id software got it right April 18, 2007
Platform for Display:Mac|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Those of us who are fortunate enough to have a mac, and have ever played Doom 3 on it will know that Doom 3, id softwares last games was horrible. No plot, monsters jumping every which way out of closets, and who knows where else. Let me get this striagh, this is totally different. No dark hallways where you can see the gun in front of you, no more ambushes by zombies and demons and whatnot, Quake 4 is an awesome, incredible shooter. The voice acting and constant action combine to make a gaming experience that no other game can match. If you have a Mac, this is a game you must get.

1.0 out of 5 stars If you own a Intel Mac, WAIT FOR THE PATCH! April 28, 2006
Platform for Display:Mac|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game because it was the first Universal Binary game that I actually want to play (besides Enigmo 2), and when I got it installed I was puzzled as to why I could not play it on high-quality graphics in full (wide) screen mode. I tried all I could to get it to work and unfortunately it will only play in 4:3 mode and that leaves nearly 1/3 of my screen not being fully utilized. I contacted Aspyr tech support, and was told that they are aware of this being an issue with the Intel Macs and that they are working on a patch to resolve the problem. Well this means that I cannot really enjoy this game until the patch comes out, however long that will take.

I am very happy that I bought this game, and once this has been resolved I will replace this review with a more accurate description of Quake 4. But in the meantime, don't go out and buy this game if you don't want to get full use out of it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Quake Yet May 31, 2007
Platform for Display:Mac|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was concerned about getting a graphics based game for a Mac (traditionally not a gaming machine), however the Intel chipset and Universal software made for a great gaming experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Blast for the Mac! May 1, 2009
Platform for Display:Mac|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I recently made the switch from Windows PCs to Mac's and was looking for a game that would show me the capablities of the IMac-24 so far as video was concerned. I was not disappointed with this game. The visuals are very impressive as is the action. If you like first-person shooter games this one will definitely entertain you. The system I have is an iMac-24 with the 2.66 GHZ Intel processor and the NVIDIA 9400 graphics built-in chip. The game plays very smoothly and I highly recommend it for this configuration with one caveat: the 9400 chip-set works well but generates quite a bit of heat so, just to be on the safe side, I usually limit my playing experience to an hour or so out of an (over?-) abundance of caution.

But the bottom line is: if you're thinking about getting it go ahead and do it.

4.0 out of 5 stars great game, but needs a fast CPU and video card April 21, 2006
Platform for Display:Mac|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I got it yesterday, played it for hours. My mac does not meet the min. requirements for CPU:

1.47Ghz G4 (upgraded Digital Audio G4 powermac)

Radeon 9800 Pro 128MB (PC version flashed for mac)

1.0 GB PC133 RAM

RAID 0 Array w/2 7200rpm drives

I think my Radeon 9800 makes up a little bit for the missing CPU mhz, but this game is making me want a G5 or Core Duo mac a lot more. Too bad they cost so much.

I play at 800x600, low quality, shadows off. Very playable in the indoor levels, very slow in outdoor large-scale battles. Framerate goes as high as 60 fps indoors, as low as 8 fps during heavy fights in/outdoors. Id says a patch (v1.2 ?) is coming soon "that will increase framerates at lower resolutions" which means on my computer :)

Good news: online multiplayer is FASTER than single player mode IF you have 6 or less opponents online with you. It's great, like Q3A was.

4 stars overall, -1 from 5 for the heavy hardware requirements.
