I picked up Quake Wars yesterday, being bored of what I have and waiting for the new football and Socom offerings. I had downloaded some of the preview videos, which are pretty funny, from the Playstation Store and it looked fun. I have spent about 3 hours playing on and offline. Since there is not a review here I thought I would put up my first impressions.
This game basically is like Team Fortress, you have 4 different classes you can choose from. Its claim to fame is that you have missions, 2-3 in a game, and only 1 class, usually, can do the task to complete the mission and the other classes support them. For example, only 1 class carries explosives needed to destroy an objective or only engineers can repair a laser. There is a main mission and depending on your class secondary missions like if you are a medic, revive a player. The list of missions is on a pull down list where you can see who on your team is working on that mission with you.
Offline play is just like online play. First you set it up like setting up an online game, choosing map, time limit, etc.. Once you do that you start the offline and you are on a team doing a mission along with computer generated players that have unique names and act like real players. At first, you may think you are playing online. It is kind of like the demo of the online mode for GTAIV.Read more ›
-It has a good array of vehicles to hop into, drive around, and kill people.
-The use of different classes is very innovative and makes for a unique play style for each class.
-The game is very sluggish and slow.
-No control customization. In every FPS on the PS3, (COD4, Haze, UT3, Rainbow Six), R1 is the trigger button. In this game, the trigger button is R2 and there is absolutely no way to change it. This, to me, is reason enough not to buy the game had I know about it beforehand. The people who made this port obviously should have recognized that there are control differences between Xbox and PS3.
-No tutorial system to tell you what everything means and represents. I dunno why they stripped it out from the PC version, which had an excellent tutorial system complete with voice dialogue.
-The graphics are not that great and look rather outdated, like the game was made for the PS2, no joke. You dont realize how good the graphics are on games like MGS4 until you play a game like this.
Overall, I would say that it is not worth 60 bucks but may be worth 30. It has some worthwhile features and I would recommend playing the original PC version, which is much better than this port.
>Online is great. It is fun for sniping or just shotguns.
> There are so many vehichle you can use which is very fun. There are 1,2,3, and 4 person vehicles. There is Atv's, Buggies, hummers, Armadilos, different sorts of tanks and different sorts of helicopters and boats.
> Lots of different sorts of maps.
> Choice to be two different speciseach with it own perks and disadvantages. There is the Strogg and the humans. For the strogg there is also lots of different futuristic guns and vehicles.
> You can choose to be different classes like medics, mechanics, snipers, field soldiers and others.
> You can build stuff like anti personel turrets or build bridges across ditches for tanks to get by.
> AI turn straight away and start shooting you even if you are 700 feet away.
> You can't customize guns.
> Can't switch controls around so there is always set controls
> Not the great of graphics
> Not as great as other gams like cod4 and 5
If you like online First person shooters you should get this. There are many different sort of gameplay.
And the AI is very well done and aggressive. I recommend this game.
