I haven't tried PS2 yet, but this EXACT thing happens to me so often in other multiplayer games that there is ZERO fun in them (and it's exactly why I am not installing PS2). It is the height of frustration to get the drop on someone but because they can hop around like a ballet-trained faerie rabbit on crack you die every time. Screw that crap.
Fortunately my experience is that bunny hopping and hyperactive strafing isn't much of a problem. Players run at a reasonable speed, sprinting lowers your weapon, and strafing is slower than running forwards. Plus there's huge accuracy penalties for moving and firing from the hip. It's balanced a lot like the Battlefield games, and not at all like Quake.
