Pros

+Also includes 6 deathmatch levels
+Includes expansions such as Winquake and support for further mods and expansions with great support
+3 difficulty modes (Easy, Normal and Hard) with a Nightmare difficulty only unlocked by doing certain steps at the beginning of the game
+Multiplayer support to co-op the single player mode or to play other types of matches

Cons
-No Music comes with the game, you have to use a mod to enable the music , the reason for that is because originally the music was on disc and you had to use the disc to listen to music while playing the game
-Have to use patches to improve the visuals, since there are no graphic options
