Quake

Worthless singleplayer with a story that seems to been done on a coffee break. In singleplayer you explore four different episodes with a number of levels and the goal of each level I simply to shoot your way to the exit. At the end of each episode you find a magic rune that you take with you and when you have all four runes a secret path in the hub that connects all the episodes open up and you can go and kill Shub-Niggurath, the final boss. The singleplayer campaign can also be played in co-op and it makes it a bit more fun :).

Multiplayer is deathmatch and fun but the thing that made Quake epic was how easy it was to modify and the number of modifications that was made for the core game.

Quake 2

First-person shooter that have nothing to do with Quake besides the name. It has a better story (they did it over lunch) but it's nothing to think to much about. The player is in the role of a Marine ( no hair ) that take part of an attack against an alien race called the Strogg. The attack more or less fails and the player is one of the few who survive so it's up to the player to kill of all the aliens including the Strogg leader Makron. You also get objectives to follow in the game so it's more of a linear battle across the levels you go through. Railgun weapon was fun.

Multiplayer works like Quake with deathmatch, capture the flag and you can also play the whole game in co-op. Like Quake this game was easy to modify so there where many cool mods made for it. I played mostly Capture the flag and 3TCTF, a mod with three teams playing capture the flag.

Quake 2: Ground Zero

Expansion pack to Quake 2

Quake 2: The Reckoning

Expansion pack to Quake 2

Quake 3: Arena

Quake 3 is a multiplayer-focused first-person shooter where your main goal is to kill the other players. It also have a capture the flag mode if you are into that. Mix of weapons from the other Doom and Quake games but I must say that I prefer Unreal Tournament over this game.

Quake 3: Team Arena

Expansion pack for Quake 3 with new game modes, weapons, maps and little else.

Quake 4

The story goes on from Quake 2 and this game takes ideas from Halo, Starship troopers and Half-Life and it does not go that well. You play another space marine this time and you have to fight of new Makron that they Strogg has created. Mostly I found the gameplay tiresome and I hate games that have a 'jump past three traps in a row' section. There is a part in the story when the player get put inside a machine to turn him in a Strogg and it was fun to see but it was not used well by the story.

Quake Mission Pack 1: Scourge of Armagon

More weapons, levels and monsters for Quake in case you thought the story ;) of the first one was epic and you need more.

Quake Mission Pack 2: Dissolution of Eternity

Even more things for Quake.

Quantum Break




Quantum Gate

A game from the multimedia age. Not fun.
