Grab a gun and hit the field: the popular Quake series tries its bloody hand at wide-scale warfare with Enemy Territory: Quake Wars!
In all honesty, Enemy Territory may as well have been called 'Battlefield Quake'. After choosing a class, you and your squad mates are dropped onto one of 12 maps, given a series of objectives (hack, destroy, protect etc.) and forced to fend off the other team in between shots to the head — no questions asked. The action is fast-paced, the weapons numerous, and with up to 16 heavily-armed players running around each match, expect to find yourself constantly respawning before you can shout "Medic!" Enemy Territory also introduces a number of vehicles into the world of Quake — both standard human military and those of the more exotic Strogg.
One of the highlights of Enemy Territory is it's 'pick up and play' aesthetic. If you've ever played a Quake game, much less an FPS in general, then you already know what to do: grab an assault rifle and start shooting. In fact, if more than 10 seconds have gone by without you unloading four or five clips into a wave of oncoming Strogg, you might want to check to make sure your controller's working. There's no doubt that Enemy Territory is an adrenaline-fuelled slaughter-fest through and through, and before you can even murmur a complaint about its lack of depth, you'll find yourself chucking grenades at enemy tanks as you blindfire the opposing team.
While the combat mechanics feel just as natural as they ever have, there are definitely more than a few issues to take into account before jumping head-first into this war. The vehicles are a bit of a pain to navigate — specifically the aerial deathtraps — and really don't add much to the experience other than explosions. Until recently, I don't think I've ever passed up a ride in a tank so I could just walk to the enemy base. The graphics in Enemy Territory aren't anything to write home about, either. While the visuals definitely get the job done, I'm not sure they warrant a $100 price tag. Still — there's no doubting that you'll be too busy ducking from enemy fire to stop and admire the detail on the individual character models.
All in all, Enemy Territory: Quake Wars is still a blast to play, and with online multiplayer and CPU-controlled bots readily available from the get-go, you'll never find yourself fighting a battle alone.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
I rate the printer as a 5 out of 5 stars as it has been able to fit seamlessly into my busy and mobile lifestyle.
It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.
