The steam version doesn't contain Quake 2 music files. If you are looking to buy Quake 2 (which is a great game), don't do it on Steam. You'll miss out on an awesome soundtrack and the game atmosphere won't ever be the same.

Out of all the quakes i think this one is the best, this game is the last game ID makes that advances the FPS genre which Valve take over with their Half-Life series.
This game is AMAZING for it's time and consoles would have to advance a generation or two just to play this classic it adds outdoor lighting, slightly more realistic lighting from Quake 1 (since Quake 2 uses a completely new engine the IDtech 2 engine instead of an improved version of the DooM engine the IDTech 1.5) and instead of fighting the DooM-style hellish creatures like in the origenal you fight agenst the Strogg.
The weapons in the game are very similar to the weapons in DooMs 1 and 2 (NOTE: i say 2 because the super shotgun isn't on DooM 1)
Also the character animations are better and the AI are smarter and In multiplayer it actually shows which weapon your character has out.
Player models are handled differently to previous IDTech games, instead of everyone having recoloured versions of one player model there are different model sets, unfortunitly you can't recolour them though, but you can add new ones or possibly variants of the default set.
And there is a part that feels like a part that Valve used in Half-Life, just thought i'd mention it.
