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 <ezeeb@bigfoot.de>

This is still my favorite multi-player game...
2 February 2005 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

I bought this game back in the summer of 1998, and there are no regrets here. When I started playing multi-player, I was hooked. Best memories are from the Finnish server iNET Small(was taken over by eDome, then EUNet if memory serves me correctly). The graphics improved with the releases of FuhQuake and most recently eQuake. Instant gibbing on maps from DM4, DEATH32C to AEROWALK and who can forget NAKED3. New 24 bit textures adds a lot more atmosphere to the maps as well.

Special thanks goes to the gang at the now closed SH9 Server in Härnosand, Sweden! The server had an amazing group of people playing there, immortalized through the screen shots!
