Gorgeous graphics (Quake II engine like you've never seen before) with lovely architecture and awesome texture work.
Beautifully animated player character (Corvus) with ultra-smooth controls.
Nice-looking enemies and terrific particle FX.
Somewhat linear and scripted.
Enemy AI disappointing, but OK.
More mileage would have been appreciated.
This is one hell of a thrill ride. First off the game uses a customized Quake II engine that looks gorgeous and plays ultra-smoothly. The 3rd person camera in Heretic 2 should be the reference point for all games that use this perspective because it is the most intuitive and easy-to-use system developed.
The player character Corvus has a host of easy to perform maneuvers that look very cool on screen. The weapons and spells are fun to use and have fantastic special FX. The levels look very good especially the Andorian episode and the K'chekrik episode and the artwork is always high quality. This game is a great buy.
The manual for those who are lucky enough to get the boxed edition is also nifty though not too detailed.
