Post Assault Cube
Yet another game to try ... but this one is totally free.

Check out Assault Cube if you have a bit of time to kill and 50-60 MBytes of disk space to spare. I found this game while searching for some example map content for ideas for a Q2 map I have been dabbling with. I downloaded the game and played it for a bit, and was fairly impressed by it's playability. It is indeed a multiplayer game, with declared intention to work reasonably even on dial-up connections. I connected to a server in Europe and had no problems staying connected and moving about, though I did have my rear handed to me by some of the players on the opposing team (yes, there are various modes of team play as well as death match variations).

Anyway, if you are up for something different, check it out: http://assault.cubers.net/media/

A couple of other things to note:
- It's multi-OS ... there are Windows, Mac, and Linux versions
- There is a map editor feature that seems to be simple enough that nearly anyone can use it. If you were ever interested in making a game map, but were daunted by the complexity of the program(s) involved, this may be one to check out.

Did any of you guys check this out? Reminder: it's free. And less than 60MBytes.

A good bump. I either missed this or forgot you posted it. Need to follow up.
