The non related sequel to id's original shooter that brought story and some much needed cinematic glamour to the raw yet refined shooter.
Once again the Nintendo 64 version of this PC classic has a story of it's own. Rather than a direct port of the original game, as with the Playstation version, Raster Productions reworked a completely new campaign onto the Quake II template. Some sections are recycled and admittedly many of the new environments and enemies have been extracted from the mission packs but they're interesting inclusions nethertheless.
And as a result it is somewhat graphically different. Quake 2 on N64 is similar to that of perhaps a PC running the game on a 3DFX chipset. The sound however is once again reliant largely on ambient sounds, yet most of the sound effects have remained intact. It even uses the N64's memory expansion pack to enhance the colours and lighting effects more so.
It must be said though, alot more was expected of the Nintendo 64 version and all in all it is somewhat of a disappointment when up against Hammerhead's work on the Playstation Quake 2. In anycase, this is worth a try.
