Quake-2 is a very worthy sequel to Quake. It has a few flaws and visually may not be on par with Unreal-1 but Quake-2 is certainly a game worth buying for several reasons. The most important reason is that when the game released, it had unbeatable multiplayer capability, just like the original quake. No game could touch it in that regard. The deathmatch is so good that it is still very playable, even after Quake-III, although not many really play it.
The single player experience is very balanced with effective weapons and enemies and good level design. There's also a fantastic soundtrack by Sonic mayhem. The ending is not at all satisfying though. But there are always the user made addons and the official addon paks to make up for that. Overall, Quake-2 has to be one of the most refined and polished productions in the gaming industry.
