Next Generation Magazine: Quake, ng alphas, December 1995

Edge Magazine: Quake 2, Prescreen Alphas, June 1997

"No doubt fed up with the publicity garnered by its rivals, both those with their own 'better than Quake' engines and those licensing the technology, id has released the first shots of Quake 2. Though the firm remains tight-lipped as to the game's plot, setting and level designs, it's already obvious that the sequel to the best-selling PC game will represent a significant leap over its previous incarnation."
