Reviving a good thread...

Daikatana (MSDN review on the way, has been since March actually.)

Pros: Good soundtrack, some good visuals (graphics in general are pretty good), good voice acting.
Cons: Horrible AI (especially the sidekicks), uninteresting level design, uninteresting weapons & monsters (a good example of quantity over quality: each episode has its own distinct set of weapons and monsters), horrible item/monster balance.

The music must be pretty damned good, because both you and Geoffrey mentioned it in your reviews.

The brilliant track in Dukecide is from Daikatana, though I may have mentioned this before.

I didn't think the level design was that uninteresting - at first sight it may appear bland but it has the same complexity q2 had and especially in the plague maps I remember things to look great.

I'm very surprised that no one has mentioned Braid. It's by far the most amazing game I've ever played. It's difficult to make a review of a game so cool, so I'll just say:

Pros: Everything.
Cons: Somewhat short.

And you can get it for just US$ 2.49 on Steam.

EDIT: Oh, I see why Braid hasn't been mentioned. This thread is very old, and Braid came out on 2009 :P

As part of a Christmas deal, of course.

Nah, it was just inconsistent. The first episode was linear but in the second episode you had to travel back and forth so it came like out of the blue, not to mention that the 2nd episode hub levels were hard to navigate due to inadequate lighting and poorly communicated tasks (as opposed to Q2).
