Quake Wars

I saw a video of the Enemy Territory: Quake Wars beta at Youtube today. It looks like a crossbreed of BF2 and Halo. It is strategic FPS with two sides, alien and human. You can be different solder roles (medics, engineer) and drive vehicles, but I don't think there is squad and commander features. the Aliens and Humans have completely different classes etc. Wonder if it is worth looking into. It is online multiplayer only with bot support I think. Can't imagine it being better than BF though. The release date should be sometime in 4th Quarter this year. I looked up the requirement and it is at least playable lol.

Quake Wars and Team Fortress 2 both look like very promising team-based shooters. Not to mention I don't have to get a brand new computer to play them! The Quake engine scales really well to crappy computers, so I think I'll be running 800x600 with minimum detail again.
