Not much to talk of apparently - only 2 maps and no bots.

Does it include the souped-up gravity gun?

There're several comments about grav gun + radiator being way too powerful, yes. Lacl of bots means I won't bother though - if I want deathmatch I have UT2004.

Personally, I've got stuck again in the single player. I'm finding the difficulty very variable - much of the time it's easy, then they throw a 'defend the arena' level at you with a hundred or so marines and no ammo. Probably have to jump back a save point or two and approach it more carefully (sigh).

Alternating with Doom3 works well - at least I'm not getting stuck at that - slightly bored yes, that's because id wouldn't know subtlty if it lurched out of a hideen closet behind them going 'arrrgh'. ]:=8)
