Pros Variety in missions & some cool environments/weapons
Cons LOADING SCREENS ARE TOO LONG
Summary In Halo & Halo 2, if you get killed, you automatically start at the last checkpoint, virtually NO LOADING REQUIRED. In Quake 4, you have to manually load the game, wait for a LONG loading screen, and then manually press A to start. This is TOOO MUCH
Pros Fun single-player shoot-em-up
Cons HD graphics are not stunning
Summary Well the XBOX has been out a little over two weeks and I've spent a week playing this title. I can't say I've seen the slow frame rates / lock-ups that CNET is reporting. Also note I'm playing in 1080i mode. The game has been a lot of fun. As they said, the graphics don't quite live up to what I've seen in NBA Live or Need For Speed MW... but the gameplay has been a blast, and more engaging than Perfect Dark Zero. My real complaint is that you cannot skip through the level intro movies, which, when you have attemtped to get through the same level 30 times, become a VERY annoying slow-down.
Pros Graphics, solid gameplay
Cons unoriginal story
Summary This game is a must-have for those who don't have the computer powerful enough to run it. A sort of sequel to Quake 2, the gameplay is excellent. Even with the lack of an original storyline, the game will keep you entertained for hours on end.
Pros fun online
Cons weak single player
Summary cnet gave this a 6 out of 10? thats barely above average and this game is very fun online. A game that is a 6 should be a game that is average in every way. I think cnet has way too tough standards when rating games and electronics. For all you people who enjoy first person shooters and online play get the game. You will be missing out on some fun fragging. If you dont go online then i would skip the game since there are other single player games that are better. But it does deserve a 8 or so if you get into online play or system link

Pros Excellent grafics
Cons Only 8 playeronline multiplayer
Summary I didnt seem to see the frame rate issues that the cnet editor had, but maybe that was because I was having so much fun playing the game!
