Mod Reviews - Chaos Deathmatch

Ever get sick of all the weapons in Quake II? Want something different? Perhaps many more weapons? Then this is for you. You have Quake II weapons, plus several others that make deathmatch with this MOD interesting.

What is it:

  • Weapons - There are lots of different weapons in this. You have several types of grenades such as flash, poison, laser, and living proximity. You have explosive shotgun shells for the shotguns and homing missles for the rocketlauncher. And then there's other weapons included in this with new models. See the screenshots to see them.

  • Items - Also included are handy items. There's a grapple hook, jetpack, radar/sonar scanner, tech powerups, flashlight, and anti-gravity belt. You can just think of all the stuff you can do with these.

  • Features - Other stuff in the games can be set. There's a lights-off mode, weapon/item banning, startup weapons/items, tele zoom, new models/sounds/skins, and more! Oh yeah, and you can fake your own death :)

  • Maps - Well, for now there is only one map included with it. You can use Quake II maps which are always fun. Expect quite a few new maps in the next release just around the corner.

  • Next release - There will be lots of new stuff coming out in the next release. They expect to add a few more maps. Some good stuff for CTF (did I forget to mention it supports CTF!!!) are turrets you can place in your base that shoot are any enemies coming in. They are also going to add a invisibility item.

  • Fairness - The Chaos Deathmatch Team has made it so people that set traps like the lasers can't always have the power. They will only be set for a certain amount of time until they explode.

  • Severs - Well like any other MOD, the servers start out small. But more servers are popping up. Hopefully this review will bring more people to this MOD and more servers will pop up.

  • The readme - If you need any help understanding all the stuff for this MOD you can always look in the readme.txt file. It explains about all the weapons/items in it along with setting up servers and what not.

    This MOD is nice because of all items and weapons put into it. All the little features make it all the more fun. I sure can't wait to see all the stuff that will be released in the next version. And if I review that one it will be sure to get an even higher rating!

    Overall Rating: 89%
