Quake 4 is a first-person shooter developed by Raven Software, the fourth installment in the series and the first Quake game not developed by id Software.


Storywise, Quake 4 is a sequel to Quake 2 and continues the story of the war between humans and cyborg alien race Strogg. You play as a Marine Corporal Matthew Kane, a member of elite Rhino Squad. The squad participates in the invasion on Strogg's home planet, but their spacecraft gets crushed in the middle of the battle zone. Now the protagonist must reunite with his team and finish the mission.


The gameplay shares many similarities with previous entries in the series, however this time, the game is much more single-player focused. The single-player mostly consists of fighting with aliens in different locations on foot with occasional differences such as turret sections or mech missions. One of the most notable differences in the game comparing to the rest of the series is that most of the time you are accompanied by the squadmates that help you fight enemies. The player has 12 weapons to choose from, most of which are recurring from the previous games such as nailgun, shotgun, railgun, blaster.
The multiplayer includes six different game modes: Deathmatch, Tourney, Capture the Flag, Arena Capture the Flag and DeadZone.

        Quake IV reviews and comments

        Translated by
        Microsoft from French
        The ugly little duck of the saga rightly? So yes and no. All of abbord there are two things that bells with this steam version already the game is only in English so that the game came out translated into all languages as the texts that the dubbing and also that it should bidoullier the file quakeconfig to have the textures thoroughly a patch that corrects its two worries would be welcome for the game in itself it picks up the Quake 2 or stops with a major assault on the planet Stroggos following the destruction of the "big gun" and the MaKron the leader of the Stroggs (Hi Manu) by bitt Erman. You will be the incarnation of corporal mathiew Kane of the rhino squad who forged a solid reputation after surviving a massive stroggs assault on Armstrong's organizations. the rhino squad and many others are sending on stroggos in order to overthrow the course of the war that pits humans to the greedy human body Strogg in order to make them Strogg and coarse their armed and their dominations side gameplay Quake 4 is very classic and does not d little bit of Quake 2 apart from the fact that you are no longer alone other soldiers will be at your side to fight and some as the engineers can repair your armor and the doctor restauré your life gauge. Even if the game will also offer many solitary passages may also some phase in vehicle which they on the other hand are not the strong point of the game. fun to do the first time may if we decide to revive the game they will prove a little boring side realization knowing that it dates from 2005 it remains mine of nothing rather nice still now in 2018, pulling the engine ID TECH 4 engine democratiser by Doom 3 the game offers neat environments of fine textures of shaders well used the shadow volume of Doom 3 works just as well as in itself last the characters are well modeled and the Syncro lip in time is rather convincing. the doubalges are good bills although has little nanardesque by time (wanted? possible) the music dives well in the mood of the game is the ambient sounds, as the howling of the Strogg make their effects as well as the detonations of the weapons their giving a lot of punch. Life span counted between 7 and 10 hours to complete the solo campaign which is correct may the replay value is not really at the rendezvous of more there to bigger world in multiplayer better to rabbatre on Quake 3 arena or Quake champions for Frag to the quake. For summary I agree on the fact that Quake 4 is the least good of the saga may say that it is a bad game no if you like the FPS uncomplexer well Gore and futuristic Quake 4 will make you pass despite its flaws a good time. This is a really nice game
