After debating whether or not to buy Enemy Territory: Quake Wars I decided to wait until Crysis came out to determine my next shooter. So far I am pretty glad I did. Most of the reviews look like it's a BF 2142 ripoff with over simplified controls for vehicles and the age old twitch of the Quake franchise. The same guys that made the Enemy Territory expansion for Return to Castle Wolfenstien (Splash Damage) made Enemy Territory: Quake Wars and more than one review said RtCW players that played ET for RtCW would be very familiar in the game. That doesn't boast so well for me as I have no desire to play anything like RtCW.
The highly touted "mega textures" or what ever they called them have turned out to be less than thrilling and the game seems to be pretty mediocre all the way around. From what I read props for the teamwork aspects of the game are in order. Apparently the class balance and overall balance of the game worked out pretty well in that you have to have a variance of classes to take and defend objectives effectively.
Is anyone playing the retail version if the game and if so what are your thoughts?
