Enemy Territory: Quake Wars
« on: September 13, 2007, 07:53:27 pm »
So yeah, the demo for this game dropped on fileplanet a few days ago and I today I gave it a test and holy crap. This game is like Battlefield 2, except with real objective maps like from UT2K4. It also runs very smoothly (no glitches like BF2 is riddled with) with beautiful graphics.

The general feel of the game is very smooth, theres no hitching, no lag from what I've seen, weapons feel powerful and fun. Theres 5 classes, each with 2-4 weapons each and a ton of equipment. The soldier, for example, can deploy timed explosives that you can place on a surface or armored thing, and grenades, and 4 choices of a main weapon. Then theres the standard medic with it's revive thing, but then theres the technician-type person, who can deploy automatic turrets. And I don't mean little things half your height, I mean giant guns that are so big they have to be flown in. And another class gets the same thing, except artillery. And its powerful artillery. It can shoot pretty much across the map, and destroy anything it hits. Theres a cooldown on firing it, of course, and targeting it makes you vulnerable.

Anyways, if you liked BF2 or BF2142, then you have to try this demo. Linky: http://www.fileplanet.com/168864/160000/fileinfo/Enemy-Territory:-Quake-Wars-Demo-(FilePlanet-Premiere)

It's really fun, havent played everything yet.

But, i must say it's kinda freaky when the stroggs say:

*i need a medic...!* *strange voice*
*Here you go...* *strange voice*
*thank you!!* *stranger voice*
*No problem.* *strangest voice*

Great demo, Im getting this for sure.

(edit) Looks like they are shipping it with ingame adds, so it goes straight in the "Im not touching this with a strangers dink on a 50 foot pole" bin, someone made a poll in the ETQW forum, and according to that (unofficial and unreliable) poll, 20% wont buy it if it ships with adds, can adds really make up for 20% lost sales ??

Aaah anyway, theres enough shooters comming out so this one wont be missed by me...

I haven't heard anything of this ad thing. I didn't notice any while playing, there were bilboards but I didn't look at them... I'll look harder next time.
