Quake 4 takes you back to the front as you fight against an unrelenting alien enemy. Armed with advanced weaponry and vehicles and aided by an elite squad of marines, you take the battle to the heart of the Strogg home planet and become Earth's only hope for victory. They're regrouping but with their planetary defenses ruined, you have a chance to deliver a full and final assault. You are Matthew Kane, an elite member of Rhino Squad, and part of Earth's next invasion wave. With the Makron assumed dead, your squad is taking part in an operation to take advantage of the disarray and mop up the rest of the enemy forces on the Strogg planet. But your drop ship gets hit and comes down hard, killing a large chunk of your squadmates at the opening of the game. From there, you'll pull yourself up out of the muck and get down to business.

  1. Lets start off with a disclaimer: There isn’t a lot here that you haven’t seen before. If you’ve played Quake 2 you already know a lot of what Q4 is going to give you as it is the official Q2 sequel.The Breakdown:GRAPHICS – Beautiful! The difference between Q3 & Q4 graphically is more like the difference between Q & Q3. All the textures look silky smooth. The charater models look gruesome and fluid. The blood sprays in all directions with every gunshot and impale. The one drawback is that you computer has to be high-end. Don’t fool yourself into thinking that you can run this game on anything less that the listed requirements.SOUND – The sound effects are creepy and always appropriate. The soundtrack sounds epic. It makes you feel like a hero even if you are just running through some trenches.GAMEPLAY – I enjoyed playing early on, but once I realized that there wasn’t ridiculous dismemberment, it just became a typical FPS with an updated Quake II skin over it. Don’t hear me say that violence is everything in a game, but with the Quake series you expect it to be that one franchise that you can always count on to push the gore envelope, and while some of the cut scenes were pretty nasty it wasn’t enough to save this from getting old after a while.If you want a PFS with a more mature bloody theme then Q4 might just scratch that itch, but gamers should go into it keeping in mind that they’ll forget the journey shortly after it over with no real desire or reason to relive it.Biggest complaint – No Bots?!? You idiots!!! Give me a new Quake Arena game.

  2. I played this a couple of times through. It was fun. Some things seemed odd at times, but I eventurally got it. It’s a tad gory here and there, but I have seen worse.

  3. This game came as a welcome surprise compared to Doom 3, which shared the same engine. This game was MUCH more fun to play. The levels actually had lighting in them, the environment was much more immersive (you have fellow Marines to interact with much of the time), and this game was not plagued by all the technical problems and crashes I had with Doom 3. Two thumbs up for this version of Quake, a worthy successor in the Stroggos storyline. Playing the older version of Q2 and the mission packs on the bonus CD was fun as well.

  4. What a letdown. This game has a great engine beautiful art, fun story and cinematics. However the gameplay was awful, nothing close to the fast paced action of Quake 1, 2, and 3 or even Doom 1 or 2. The game focuses on startling, and surprised the player. I felt like the combat was too slow paced and lacked enough enemies. Too often I walked down empty halls with nobody to shoot. Needless to say ID Software really missed the mark with this one.

  5. Arrived in good condition with case, manual and both disks. Quake 4 is fun, but I bought this for the copy of Quake 2 and its expansion packs, which are included on the bonus dvd. One complaint: the bonus dvd does not play the Quake 2 soundtrack. Quake 4 can be a pain to run on modern computers, works best with unnecessary background processes turned off.
