"Q4 for Mac multiplayer is not cross platform..."

This game was a waste of money as the Multiplayer feature is the best part. Before this upgrade I was able to see 3 servers. After the upgrade, the same 3.

Basically, the box states that you can play online but unless it is a pure Mac only server you can't. No logging in to servers that are PC.

You would think that since the Mac is gaining market share all the time they would keep releases current?

Boo to Aspyr for putting the Mac on the back burner and cheating their customers.

"Quake 4 crippled by 1.3 update"

December 24, 2006  |  By bigdaddysopa

 |  Version: Quake 4 1.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Bought Quake 4 and updated to v1.3 after installing it. Can't find ANY server to play on. The update apparently disabled cross platform play (Windows and Linux) and can't play on Mac servers unless they are running v1.3.
The single player runs fine but what is the point of a Quake game WITHOUT online multiplayer? Hopefully aspyr and id are working on this issue - I Contacted their support about this and they gave no info about any new updates/fixes....

"Not a multiplayer game."

December 11, 2006  |  By r-0X#Zapchud

 |  Version: Quake 4 1.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Bought Quake 4 today for Multiplayer only (Singleplayer is worthless for me), then realized the game in principle doesn't support multiplayer at all, because it doesn't support playing on non-mac servers. So much for "Compete online in fast action, arena-style Multiplayer" which the cover says.

"no more cross platform multiplayer"

October 22, 2006  |  By agree499_dotmac

 |  Version: Quake 4 1.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This "update" removes support for cross platform gaming, and because there's no way to find Mac servers effectively eliminates online play altogether. This update should come with a refund of half the purchase price! Don't buy Quake 4 if you want to play online and don't upgrade if you haven't already!
