Pros: fantastic game for anyone who ever played and loved games like quake, unreal tournament, doom, halo etc.
Cons: testing until i will find one
Other Thoughts: haven't seen any free games (yet) that have this kind of quality. looks good (or better funny), runs really smooth, plenty of servers available and just simply put a game for many hours of fun.
