Edition Examiner – Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars

Time for another entry into The Edition Examiner.  I started this back in August to take a closer look at the limited and collector’s edition of games when available.  Everyone really enjoyed it so here we go again.  Thanks to Activision, I’ll be shining the light on the Limited Collector’s Edition of Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars for the PC.

Yes, I’m a PC gamer as well.  How do you think I started mastering my extraordinary skills?  Anyway, let’s get down to making the case.

The Edition Examiner covers two important things; craftsmanship and extras.

Quake Wars Limited CE   Quake Wars Limited CE   Quake Wars Limited CE   Quake Wars Limited CE

Craftmanship - The LCE is designed in a very simple yet effective manner.  The outer case in which the LCE is housed is a very nice cardboard material.  That makes it good to withstand what a gamer might put it through.  It has markings on the back of it along with images of the two factions at war.  The raised text of the game’s name gives off a pretty cool shine on the outer case.  The actual LCE casing is the same material and it’s a 3-part sleeve.  The left side has the manual and cards, the center has the game disc and the right side has the bonus disc.

Overall, the craftmanship was well done.  For a game like this, simple and effective worked out nicely.

Extras - The QUAKE Wars LCE comes with a bonus disc loaded with concept art, videos and more.  The concept art is plentiful and the videos include some cool developer interviews.  It also includes ten exclusive QUAKE Wars Collector’s Cards.  Each one of the cards shows off a different GDF (Global Defense Force) or Strogg vehicle or deployable with gameplay facts and never-before-seen artwork.  The extras alone give strength to this edition.

Edition Examiner Result - It doesn’t stand out but that doesn’t take away from it being a very good edition to the Limited and Collector’s family.  The screenshots I hope add to the written word here so that you get a good sense of what’s inside and how it’s designed.

I would’ve much rathered a tin case but the cardboard material was efficient in making it stand out.  I think the best of the Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars Limited Collector’s Edition is inside with the bonus disc and other extras.  It gets my nod for being worthy of LCE status.

  1. Not to mention that its just a great game as well!! The beta really made it shine!!

  2. i’ll be installing this weekend to give a spin :)

  3. Well I read your Lost Planet edition examiner and I have to disagree. Lost Planet is a 3/5. How can you give an xbox360 Collectors Edition a 5 out of 5 if the bonus disc does not include any exclusive themes or gamerpictures. This is why I bought the Perfect Dark 0 collector’s.

    Deacon can you review the Halo 3 Legendary Edition? I read that it comes with an Essentials DVD that includes gamerpictures and themes of Halo 3. To me this is a must have and should be included in all reviews.

  4. if i can get my hands on it i will. but the Lost Planet one scored really big on design in my opinion. keep in mind it came at a time when there was really no overwhelming demand for exclusive gamerpics and themes etc. it did though come with a bonus map that you couldn’t get anywhere else.

    so i reviewed based upon when it was released ya know. :) still, i’m very glad you checked it out.

    i’ll be doing the Halo 3 Limited up next. i’ll see if i can get the Legendary as well.

  5. will you only do these when you get the games for free? you should have done halo 3.

  6. i plan on doing Halo 3 Limited tonight. if i win Legendary i’ll do that as well. and hey i’m not ballin’ like most people so i do them when i can manage them or when they’re sent in for me to put through the EE.

  7. I posted that comment while I was home for lunch and felt like crap because I said it in my head and it came out like I was being an ass. Sorry about that, Deac.

  8. lol @ Jokar. i took it in such a way that you were asking for more from the Edition Examiner. i didn’t think at all as if you were being an ass.

  9. I’m asking for more from the edition examiner. More close-up pictures, more reveiews, more content from game developers, etc.

    Maybe users can submit their own EE reviews? I have the GoW CE which I like. I also have the Halo 2 LE, Oblivion CE, and Lost PLanet CE. I also saw Two Worlds has a LE…….who would buy that?

  10. My brother also bought the Bioshock CE and I gotta say it is lame. I watched the bonus DVD and it put me to sleep after 3 minutes. No special casing but it does come with 3 music tracks from the game. I give it a 2/5.

  11. more, more, more..you guys always want more! ;) lol

    feel free to submit your own guys and girls. just email ‘em to me when you have a hot LE or CE and you want to put it in the Edition Examiner.

  12. oh and i LOVE the feedback and support of this guys!
