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

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

The Reckoning was the first mission pack released for Quake II. Like the first Quake, this mission pack brings in that same single-player fun with plenty of missions to keep your thirst for Quake II busy. A must buy for anyone, like me, that enjoys a lot of single-player fun!

Q1 map packs > Q1 > Q2 > Q2 map packs. A real let down after how good Q2 was. Don't bother with either mission pack for Q2 but definitely play the original's if you have them.

Eh it's Okay.
Not great or bad.
Pretty much you go trough 5 chapters along with having new weapons and annoying enemies.
Meh boring imo. Same looking level design,same enemies but some new ones,only 3 or 4 new weapons,just meh.
6/10. Quake 1's expansion pack is better.
EDIT. Forgot to mention but the Steam Overlay doesn't work it's broken. UGH
