Considering the fact that you've never even played Quake 4, that makes your price assessment 100% useless.

Considering I went on to point this out, your response is useless.
Also, considering FEAR's demo wasn't a true level but a mishmash, your assertion that the level design based upon that is equally useless, eh?

And as I've stated before, the Quake monsters should engage you in a straight up frontal fight, especially a Quake 2 sequel, which is exactly what they do.

Just because something is based on something old does not mean it shouldn't advance. Hey, Peter Jackson is remaking King Kong. I guess he should use the same technology for the special effects, right? Updating would be bad, eh?

In fact I haven't seen or played levels this dull in years. I'm seriously bored with the levels, I mean, there is just nothing impressive in any of them.

For someone so incredibly concerned with how useless the opinions of reviewers are you're very concerned with me believing your opinion of the game as being proper.

Read my typing - Quake 4 looks boring to me. You like it. that's fine, but you've been here arguing nonstop with those of us that aren't interested in it. Just because you like and do not like FEAR does not mean others shouldn't be the other way around if they so choose. Every single post you've made is knocking other games in an attempt to prove that Quake 4 is the best game you've ever played. No one cares. Other people find it dull. Reviewers are mixed, some finding it dull. You seem to take offense to this. Unless you have something personally vested in the game, you're just wasting your time arguing with people and telling them they are wrong for not liking it.

Again, as I have not played this game, nor FEAR, and have little intention of playing either until the prices fall, I could care less about them, I just find it great that you keep talking about how opinions are useless yet you refuse to let others have one.


Because you've already decided that you don't like this game, you're not objective about it at all, and your thoughts of the game as you play it will probably be affected negatively by all the bitching and drivel on this ever continuing written pissing contest about Quake 4. And sadly I have contributed to it. That being said, I'm going to return to playing Quake 4 on the 4th difficulty level, blasting Strogg, and occasionally playing the multiplayer. You go do whatever makes you happy and we will just agree to disagree about this game.

Not true, low expectations usually make a game better, as its easier to meet them. I had more or less figured Far Cry would suck due to the lame plot. I was very wrong about it and the game surprised me. I was more or less convinced HL2 would be great due to the pedigree. Turns out it sucked me in much less than Far Cry or the original HL.

However, your staunch defense of Q4, with the refusal to allow opposing views and the refusal to admit maybe some parts of Q4 aren't as much fun as they could be have certainly turned me off. You're overblowing the game to the point that no game could live up to it.
