:: Quake Mission Pack 1: Scourge of Armagon

* FPS - PC (GoG/Steam)

Wanted to play some Quake, but opted to start with the Mission Packs that I haven't completed yet. After playing a lot of DOOM, Quake in general feels a bit 'off'; the atmosphere is superb, but the weapon set isn't quite right. The Shotguns are so ineffective that you feel like something's wrong and with the slower running speed and general sluggishness of the player compared to DOOM throw you off. Quake II fixed the fluidity and weapon set but lacks the level design and environments of Quake. I couldn't say much about Mission Pack 1 in particular -- it's literally just more Quake levels, and I am perfectly okay with that.

:: Highlights

* The mine level is freakin' cool

:: Areas of Improvement

* Curse those bloody scorpion robots
* The new weapons don't add anything worthwhile
