Quake is a first-person shooter revolving around the Earth-Strogg war. The Strogg alien race threatens the Earth, but Earth has launched a counter-offensive, Operation Alien Overlord. Overlord takes the battle to the Strogg homeworld with the ultimate objective of securing their capital city and killing their ruler. Arriving almost two years after the massively successful PC version, Quake II for PlayStation features 19 levels of non-stop carnage. Taking place throughout six different areas located on the alien Strogg planet, players must infiltrate large warehouses, military complexes, and research facilities while disarming security doors, destroying research information, and taking transmission satellites out of commission. Players will be met with heavy resistance along the way ranging from Light Guards and the muscle-bound Enforcer to massive Tanks that wield laser-blasters, rockets, and machine guns. While players begin with a dinky Blaster, there are a variety of attack weapons scattered throughout the planet including the Super Shotgun, Rocket Launcher, Grenade Launcher, and the end-all BFG10K. There is also some helpful items including health kits, three different types of armor (Flak Jacket, Combo Suit, Body Armor), armor shards, a bandoleer for storing more ammunition, and the destructive Quad Damage (increases your weapon's damage by four). Quake II features three different skill levels, and options include as the ability to increase or decrease the music and sound effects volume. The PlayStation version features a variety of multiplayer games including Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, and the Versus mode. Deathmatch is an every-man-for-himself battle to the finish, while Team Deathmatch involves a two-on-two, two-on-one, or three-on-one team-play option. Versus mode is a round-based competition with no health or item pick-ups — once a player is killed in action, they'll have to sit out until the other players are finished fragging each other. Quake II comes with Multi-Tap compatibility (for up to four-player deathmatch) and works with the PlayStation's Mouse. Additionally, it supports the Dual Shock Analog Controller and utilizes the various vibration functions.
