The engine this game runs on is good enough to enable a relatively intense dispersal of body parts from shot gun blast you administor to your victim, and yes, produces blood splatter on walls and screams of agony. A midrange system can handle all that game offers.
The extra staying power of game revolves around creation of new maps and bot models by gamers themselves; which can be found for download at places like LvLWorld and Polycount. Thousands of maps and hundreds of bots can bring a whole new dimension to game, and creations continue to this day. Take on Homer Simpson, Darth Vader, or creature from Aliens in maps ranging from being inside a computer tower , where you are about two inches tall; to rampaging through a city, where you can leap from top of each building in a single bouncepad ... all while trying to evade a plasma gun, rocket launcher, or flamethrower.
