Hey! WTF! Where is the music ?! - steam version doesn't have the OST and without it you feel that the "magic" element is missing :-(

This is a game from the past. As mean old game.
I bought that game for nostalgia, but this game is still good how I remembered it!

I think to the other players do not share my nostalgia, but I guess the today's player would enjoy this game as me did!

This game like a hack-and-slash with guns. Because, there is a very short story detail and there are only two video animations. At when you start the new game and at when you end the game.

I know the story is really short.
For example; You are a soldier and you have got down an alien planet for kill the 'Stroggs'. You gets many of short missions like; go there, switch that, get that, destroy that, etc..
It sounds like boring, BUT NOT! Not those thing gives to this game fun, the atmosphere do that what consists the strange good yellow tone, the sci-fi place, short of story and that strange rock music what seems like does not match the game, but though it is still good at the playtime.

Only one thing!
You must install the [Ultimate Quake II Patch] for the original-full experience.

Good things:
-Strange good atmosphere.
-Low hardware requirements and runs well.
-Seems like hack-and-slash.

Bad things:
-Must install the [Ultimate Quake II Patch] for the original-full experience.
-Can not disable the mouse accelerate. (I used to it)

I recommend this game those who like the FPS style, old games, sci-fi stories and the less details story.
P.S. I suggest play 'Hard' difficulty for more fun. This 'Hard' not like hard as you expected. If you use the [Energy Shield] item then it becomes more easy.

AVOID this steam release, as it is missing the CD music. The Good Old Games version DOES have the missing music though!
