Quake II, PC

id Software’s 1997 release Quake II is as much a quantum leap from the first Quake, as Doom was to everything else around at the time.

Quake II is faster, leaner, and meaner than its predecessor. The dark, Lovecraftian themes have been replaced by a science fiction angle this time, and all the weapons and monsters have been changed too. Very little remains from the original Quake.

What makes Quake II really stand out from the crowd though are the precise gameplay mechanics. Shooting an adversary with a Railgun from a distance is still a revelation.

Still available to buy and play now from Steam and GOG.com, and elsewhere!
