Many people will say that this game is the worst. "It's nothing like the first game! It blows chunks!"
Well, I'll say you're wrong.
It is DEFINATELY not the best game in the series, like the first one. Like Deus Ex: The Fall you need to look at the game as what they wanted it to be and how accutare the game got to their target. As we can see in the ad for it, most of what is shown is firefights and explosions. Perhaps they wanted a more action-esque game? Yes and no.
I know it says that I'm played very little of the game here on steam, however I had a CD copy of this recently and decided to play it one day as it had only been opened a few times before. My older cousins would come once in a while and since we had a desktop, cousin P would come and play his collection of PC games he would leave here. Recently, within the last few months in the smmer, I found the stash and this was in it.
After 6 hours of playing it off the CD I can say, yes the game IS NOT the first one. Most scenes are better done by running and gunning rather than slow and comprehensive plans and watching the walking patterns. And sure, it might crash once in a blue moon; who cares! This is a windows 2000 game :D
Other than the main RPG flaw being that you need a gun no matter what to go anywhere fast, you can definately play the game the old style if you want to. This does prove to be tougher over all as the enemies don't USUALLY walk on a path anymore. Nor do the have a specific walk area. Enemies tend to explore, and if they find you you're done unless you flatten them ASAP. Armor is indeed hard to come by as an upgrade so it is worth having health items as often as possible. You will take a hit, even it a random fire starts.
Different from the first game, where in the beginning you have to collect items from enemy guards and such instead of finding them in random places, in this game it is flipped: you can just find random whatever anywhere on the map. As I said earlier the RPG elements are indeed lowered.
So what were they aiming for? While the first game revolutionized how we think of FPRPG's nowadays, at the time quake was the holyfartcow of the universe just as COD is now. What was most likely being aimed for was the idea of being more like a shooter than an RPG, even though those elements are still there. Not helpful in a stealth FPRPG.
Overall score? 7.6 / 10. Not a bad game, just not as good as the first.
