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.

Doom3world Speed Mapping Contest

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.

Short, enjoyable and challenging experience and great design. A must for Quake fans.

Eight action packed maps, offering a variety of themes with good design all round. While the combat is a little on the easy side, the run and gun mechanics are handled well despite the infinite ammo, to keep a constant pace when mowing down waves of enemies.
