Mankind discovers the secret of 'slipgates' called teleporters. However, they're misused by some strange force code-named 'Quake', which uses the slipgates to send hordes of warriors to earth to take over the whole world. A marine special unit, to which you belong, is instructed to seek and kill 'Quake' and his minions - somehow 'Quake' knew about the plan and erased the whole unit - except for - surprise! - you. You throw a round of shells into the shotgun, sharpen your axe and engage to the strange and ancient worlds of 'Quake's realm. You learn that 'Quake' is actually Shub-Niggurath, a hideous demon and witch-goddess, and that the monsters are her breed! You decide to collect the four runes of magic to find Shub and kick his god-forsaken ass! Written by Benjamin Lissner <>

Did You Know?


Originally intended to be a medieval game with swords and a dragon, but only a few months before it was released guns were added and roleplaying aspects removed. The dragon was also removed, although several other monsters like the Knights and Fiends were kept. The dragon was later added in the second mission pack by Rogue Entertainment. See more »

One of my favorite Computer Games
15 June 2000 | by (Hamilton, Ontario) – See all my reviews

The original Quake is one of my favorite computer games of all time. When it first came out in 1996, it was very revolutionary. It was the first 3d shooter to use texture-mapped polygons and the enemies looked very good. The weapons were very cool too. I really liked the nailguns and the grenade launcher. The animations of the monsters are, in my opinion, still top-notch even by today's standards. Unlike most enemies in today's 3d shooters, the monsters are scary and horrifying. The fiend and the shambler are the most terrifying monsters that you will face and they require very quick reflexes to defeat. Upon hearing that one of my favorite musical groups, Nine Inch Nails, would be doing the soundtrack for this game only heightened my anticipation of playing Quake for the first time back in 1996. The soundtrack does not disappoint. Trent Reznor has created an atmospheric and immersive ambient music that truly brings you into the twisted and weird environment of the game. The game designers are obviously big NIN fans because the textures, environments and monsters seem too look as if they could be from an NIN video. They also named one of the guns the "nailgun" and the ammo for it has an NIN logo embroided on it. All in all, Quake is a wonderful game even by today's standards. It is also a very revolutionary game and is now a part of computer gaming history. The game has great action, great weapons, freaky monsters, fun single player, addictive multiplayer and an NIN soundtrack. What else more can you ask for?
