Tab3: Radioactive 0.8M112/8/2000 Keyed door seals shut...but there's an alternate route obviously not intended by the author! Finding it is tremendous puzzle-solving fun. You gotta try it!!!
Space Odysseys 3.6M512/8/2000 Very co-op friendly, excellent opening & closing credits.
The Mutator Labs 0.9M112/8/2000 Good design, tough play. 'Nuff said.
Payback 0.7M112/8/2000 A bit easy, but well-designed.
Raw Sewage 0.7M112/8/2000 Short, somewhat simple, but OK.
Missile Base A32 0.5M112/8/2000 Same author as above, also small and simple.
Final Absolution 0.6M112/8/2000 Again same author; good basic monster-fighting fun this time.
Final Drill 1M212/8/2000 OK, but has a very confusing exit back to the standard Quake 2 maps.
Storage 0.8M112/8/2000 Awfully simple; lack of landmarks makes it easy to get lost.
Old Storage Area 2 0.5M112/8/2000 Great crane, cool portal.
Terran Torture 0.3M111/2/2000 A decent map considering its miniscule download size.
TAB4: Strogg Pump Station 0.8M111/2/2000 Also a bit short, but satisfying.
TAB5: House of Jorg 0.7M111/2/2000 Basic, staightforward monster-fighting fun.
Mercy 0.9M111/2/2000 Clever theme: mercy-kill your fellow Space Marines. Nice layout & puzzles too!
Military Outpost 1.1M111/2/2000 Excellent visuals include nuclear missile launches.
Leftovers 0.6M111/2/2000 Fabulous little level by DOOM wad grandmaster Iikka Keranen. Great ending!

Water Works 1.1M211/2/2000 Technically this fails right at the very end, but it's too good to miss...so consider the game over after you blow up the dam.
Nailbomb 3.5M38/11/2000 Great airstrike, cool bridge, and the feeling of being on a real mission.

Bullet Ballet 0.6M28/11/2000 2 short levels. We played through fine, but long fall on 2nd map could be impassable if you're low on health.
Exterior Infiltration 1.2M28/11/2000 Great for use with the Co-Op Cam. Don't remember why, but that's what my notes say. :-)

Crater's Edge 1.2M13/21/2000 Yer basic fine level, nice visual detail.
First Strike 1M13/21/2000 Good medium-sized level. 'Nuff said.

Death is Not Worth Trying 0.5M13/10/2000 Short, but well done for such a quick download.

Angron Installation 1M21/27/2000 Simpler than its sequel, but still good.
Premonition of Angron 4.4M41/27/2000 Lavish eye candy, great design. Get it now!

Quake II Mission Pack: The Reckoning n/a171/12/2000 Commercial add-on. About 10 hours of wild co-op-friendly play. Excellent!
Built-in levels n/a391/5/2000 Superb, though use of multiple small levels to simulate larger ones is a bit annoying.
The Wellspring of Murk 2.2M11/5/2000 Handsome level. Not sure if I got stuck at the end, but Bryan was able to exit.
REoL TOUGH: Armageddon 0.7M11/5/2000 Pretty simple level design, but plays OK in co-op.
REoL TOUGH: The Unforgiven 0.6M11/5/2000 Problem: monster-dropped weapons are not permanent. Still pretty simple.
