I donno ive tried the demo and its a really fast paced kind of game, i donno about you but im not into the scifi kind of bullshit games,however i love deathmatch in any game cause i hate waiting when i die.
For single player Quake games, go for Q2 and Q4.
For multiplayer (which I prefer) buy the platinum edition of Q3 (which contains its expansion). For years, Q3 was the main CPL discipline.
and yeah i think Q4 MP < Q3 MP sadly :/
I heard Quake 4 sucked because of the shitty singleplayer and multiplayer. But since your looking for a Dm game, Quake is known for that.
Personally I hate the whole Quake series. It may have been the best in its time, but now it's just crappy as hell. There's nothing in those games that make you think at all, just run and gun. And you have to admit, that gets boring really fast. I used to play on Css dm servers all the time, but it got so boring after a while. So if your a DM fan, I guess Quake 4 is for you, but personally I would wait until Unreal tournament 2007 comes out.

Gotta remember that counter strike used the quake engine
No, I think it used the Half-Life engine. Ever wonder why Half-Life gets preloaded when you download CS on another PC?
It's too hardcore for a lot of people, most are used to slower paced team-based play. When you throw someone who is used to playing CS into a FFA fragfest, they tend to get discouraged.
Quake 4 has shitty SP but the MP is still pretty good. Personally, I still like Q3:A for PC/DC over Q4 for PC/360. Just go buy Q3, or Ultimate Quake and get all of the first 3.
