    Quake still is and always will be a good-looking game because it has good colour and form aesthetics, composed with the graphical limitations in mind. Increasing the resolution and adding filtering can actually spoil that. Another game with very good graphics from that period is Azrael's Tear. Many PlayStation games qualify too.

    Dusk certainly doesn't have that kind of aesthetic either in colour composition or models.

    Edit: It's also worth mentioning that pixel graphics were originally designed for low CRT resolutions, which made the pixels blend and diffuse colours, creating much smoother details and even translucency effects. That doesn't come out on LCD monitors at all, and pretty much all retro graphical styles get this wrong.

    Art style still sucks ass. Game's a bit unimaginative (except the level design). Seems to lack quite a bit of polish (for example, notice only one death animation and one pain grunt sound for the main mooks). Soundtrack is also typical modern blandness.
    However, core gameplay and level design seems decent, which is what matters most.

    Yeah it's early access but it's been like this since ep. 1 and I doubt it will change.

    I don't think variety is how polish's defined pal.

    That's probably the only good RPS article they made in years, and it still reads as fucking obnoxious as ever.

    At least they linked this Blood mod I never heard of. Looks decent. Oh, and Dusk is good too looking forward to it around Christmas season of all things.

    Just played, what, 7 levels of the new episode. Go out and buy this game now! You must, because I command it!

    Biggest head trip I've had in years in a FPS. Often genuinely creepy too.

    The second and third episodes are leagues better than the first, so if you were put off by it you should try again.

    skacky you're one of the few true connoisseurs of good games, so I'll take your word for it and give it a shot :salute: (and no, I'm not being ironic)

    Been waiting for a proper Quake followup for the past 20 years. Just bought it today, in the middle of episode 2 right now and I'm having loads of fun.

    Australian guy also says Fallout 76 is average teetering on good, so I guess that does mean Dusk is at least a little better than Fallout 76.

    Australian guy just likes to go against the public opinion sometimes. He was one of the few reviewers who disliked Wolfenstein the new colossus, for example.

    I am pretty sure nuWolfenstein was universally disliked among oldskul fps community, just like fallout 3/4 is disliked among oldskul crpg community. You might've confused the noise from nugamers for a universal consensus on nuWolfenstein.
