I wonder if mods still work with the remastered version.

Oh the days of deathmatch on Lithium II servers.

If they don’t work yet, than this release means anyone can go ahead and make them work.

The move to 64-bit and some changes to the API broke many mods. This release is to make it possible for those mods to be updated.

Is Quake II worth picking up? I have the first one but never played the others

ThirdWorldOrder,

I don’t like it nearly as much as the first but it’s definitely worth a pickup. Still better than the vast majority of boomer shooters that have come out in the past 8 or so years. The remaster is well done.

I started playing yesterday and couldn’t let go.

II is epic. It’s a total must if that’s your thing. It literally set the standard. Ok, well Q1 did, but II, what a treat.

I wish I could go back and play it again for the first time. It was one of the first games I played after getting my first voodoo card. It felt like I was experiencing the bleeding edge of tech.

Thinking about it, i can’t remeber a time in the last decade that a game made me feel that way. Crysis was probably the last time.

More on topic, yes everyone should own it. I think I bought a steam or GOG bundle and got all the doom and quake games for like $5-$10 or something like that.

cambriakilgannon,

Messing around with VR gave me that sense of wonder again for a while. If you ever get the chance to play around with it i recommend it

Tatters,

I remember getting a Voodoo card specifically to play Quake II as one of the first hardware 3D games. Isn’t it the one where at the beginning you get out of a crashed rocket or something like that?
