I loved this game. I found everything about it to be wonderful. I enjoyed the story, weapons, enemies, setting, gameplay, and voice actors. The graphics show their age, but it's not so bad that it should put potential buyers off. I'd recommend this game to anybody. It's on sale pretty often and it's well worth the money. This classic fps definitely deserves a spot in your collection. 9.2/10
If we compared Quake IV with Quake III, it hasn't any new remarkable feature! Because Quake III is the best and most complete first person action game, so we have nothing to add to this full game. But Quake IV is still your best choice if you want to play a classic, FPS game.
The first impression when you look at Quake 4 makes you think of Doom 3. Fortunately, the illusion disappears very quickly uncovering a radical shooter, which will entertain the player for at least a few hours. Despite the fact, I believe that Q3A was a better part of the series I can still appreciate great levels, great designs of opponents, and decent graphics and sound that holds up till this day.
A really great game! I love the very epic and scary story, it's way better than the Quake 2 story. While the quake 2 story had a lot more hero feel, this has the more realistic war feel. Both are good. I personally like Quake 2 as a game more, but like the story of Quake 4 more. Awesome enemy designs, awesome weapons designs and awesome music. So yeah, a really great game. sad that there probably won't be a Quake 5. But if you like SCIFI games and kinda old school gameplay, then I recommend it for you.
I remember how painful the wait for this game was. There were constant leaks with fake logos, I remember me and my friends drawing Quake IV logos because we were hyped, especially when they finally announced it. And then they released it... and sadly there was little disappointment about it. The graphics felt as plastic as in Doom 3 - for the time it wasn't bad at all, but it didn't age well at all. Music is pretty non-existent because there is nothing memorable about it. The plot is an interesting take on the franchise because it turns you into strogg, but sadly the game doesn't do anything interesting with it, which is a shame. It also has the then late "id game syndrome", meaning halfway through the game it gets boring, just like Doom 3, because there is not that much happening or changing gameplay-wise. While the guns are fun (nailgun for the win!), it doesn't do anything amazing in that department - it's fine. MP is just a boring rehash and the meat of the game is single-player. Interesting piece of history, nowadays outdated, but still good to play if you're hungry for some good old straight FPS.
