I am talk about the new things of this mission pack. So, my main[QUAKE 2] review is here!

The new maps and the different sort of character story is still good as it was the main [QUAKE 2].
The new weapons was not so. I felt those too much different from the [QUAKE 2] style, but not bad.

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

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

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.

Install the Ultimate Quake II Patch to restore the Sonic Mayhem soundtrack.

As for the gameplay, it's alright for a 90s PC expansion made by a different developer. The new weapons are a lot of fun to use, but the last few stages can become really tedious having to wittle away at numerous beta class gladiators around every corner that have energy shields and beefed up health. It's not a problem if you're speedrunning, I guess, but in my opinion they tend to slow normal gameplay down because there are so many of these punching bags to go through near the end of the game; not hard, but somewhat boring. The standard Strogg guards are now equipped with hyperblasters, ion rippers, and Warhammer 40K style red laser flashlights that are suprisingly accurate and damaging, unlike the 40K Imperial Guardsman's lasgun. The railgun or rocket launcher makes quick work of them at long range when you get it, though.

TL;DR 7/10, it's alright, worth playing at least once

If you like QUAKE II then you will like this DLC. You get your moneys worth with this DLC, it took me about 7 hours to finish! Plus the ending bits were cool and challenging. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoyed QUAKE II. (P.S. If you can't run the pack you will have to right click on QUAKE II and select properties. Then click Launch Options and type in: "+set game xatrix" (without the " " ). Then launch Quake II and it should launch this DLC.) 8/10

In this mission pack you look at the story from another point of view and as always new weapons and enemies, good game!
