CoR is rough around the edges in terms of design, but the gameplay offers a decent enough experience to have an enjoyable time. Later enemy usage could have provided more depth and felt less tacked on.

Aeon is a simple arena fight which could have benefited from better pacing and not have concluded so abruptly. Back in Time approaches a neat time travelling concept but combat is weak and easy. Investigation provides engaging and well paced combat, while Rising Lava creates a good concept that remains a constant threat, enemy usage creates tension and has fantastic design.
The cheesy b-movie horror style through its visuals and presentation help to create plenty of charm here. However the combat doesn’t provide much of a challenge and focuses too much zombies which quickly becomes repetitive.
Short, enjoyable and challenging experience and great design. A must for Quake fans.
One fine level with a refreshing and nicely designed theme, good attention to detail and mood, rounded off with tight, action packed gameplay.
