Reviewed by Q Olegario Well finally fans of the well known and liked computer game, Quake can relax. The Nintendo 64 version has hit stores all across America. The game is based on its original computer version. Although there are numerous stages and weapons the gameplay is very similar to the computer version. I found the game fun, until I began to notice that there were no new tasks. Don't get me wrong the game is fun, but then again it is no GoldenEye. The weapons are the exact same ones in the computer version. The game began to get boring because there were no new tasks throughout the game. All you have to do is find the exit while killing all the monsters in your way. Although there are some new levels from the computer version of Quake, the game just isn't as mush fun as its computer counterpart. I figure if you have a choice between the computer version or the 64 version I would tell you to stick to the computer version. Not only is the game almost the same as the computer version but the multiplayer is just horrible. The game only allows two player multiplayer. The stages are very large so it may not be very easy to find your opponent. This multiplayer gets boring and repetitive very easily because...well...its only two player and you can't change your weapon settings. What i have found while playing against my brother is that there is really no fun...I mean since the stages are very large, players have so much time we ended up having a fight every time with the strongest weapon. I really wouldn't recommend this game unless of course you don't have a computer and are really willing to spend $60 dollars for a game that isn't that great. The choice is up to you.

Graphics 7 out of 10

The game's graphics aren't spectacular, but then again they aren't too bad. The graphics are dark and dim throughout the whole game. Although these graphics give the game a look of evil, the graphics tend to make you strain your eyes. Besides the fact that the game is too dark and dim, the graphics are a bit grainy blocky. I found that there were no extremely different walls or floors as in Goldeneye. The blood in the game was just dumb. When the enemies get closer to you they seem to become blurry and very grainy. I found that the graininess was very distracting and just looked horrible. I really found the graphics to not come of as spectacular but dark and dim. I had to turn the contrast up on my TV the first time i turned on the game just to see where I was going. I recommend buying the computer version instead because the graphics aren't as grainy.

Music and Sound 5 out of 10

The sound in this game was horrible. The only thing that i heard was a lot of grunting and screaming. The gunshots were clear but then just abruptly stopped whenever you released the trigger button. The sound level tended to stay the same throughout the entire game. I think that the all the grunting and screaming just annoyed the he-double toothpick out of me. Well now onto the music...wait...was there any music? While playing the game i found that I didn't hear any music. Oh wait never mind I heard was just extremely low. I found that the sound and music are better if you do them with your mouth. Even those sounds coming from your mouth...or other areas of the body are better than the ones in the game. I suggest turning on the radio while playing the game. Well overall the music and sound effects were lame not to mention annoying.

Game Challenge 8 out of 10

The game was challenging. There that's all i have to say. No just kidding. I found that the monsters were hard to kill. The aiming wasn't great so that also helped make the game more challenging. Although the game was challenging it wasn't all because of the fact that it was a challenging game. I found that the game was challenging because half the time you can't see where you're going because the damn game was too dark and dim. I also found that another factor of the challenge of the game was that every room looks almost exactly the same as the others. But anyway besides those and a few other points, the game itself gives you a good challenge. There are a lot of monsters and they aren't that tough to kill. Well the game also offers a challenge by making you search for keys in order to go into a new room. The game also makes you go back and forth through rooms in order to find your way out. I think the game offers a good challenge.

Game Play-Fun 5 out of 10

I didn't find the game very fun. I think that the game could have been better if they had made more stages and more monsters. The game was challenging I'll give it that but it just wasn't a whole lot of fun. To tell you the truth when i rented the game I got so bored that after about half an hour to an hour i just got fed up with the lack of fun and turned it off and began to play GoldenEye 007. I mean the game is OK, nut the multiplayer just sucks. I really didn't enjoy it. It would be more fun if it were 4 player, but its not so it sucks and is very boring. I don't think that that the creators put a lot of time into making sure that the game was fun. It looks like they tried to make it as fast as they could. Another thing that made me mad was that the rockets and other guns didn't light up rooms the way they did in the computer version. The game is an ok game but i just didn't find it fun enough. I suggest you play the computer version because all of the computer levels are featured in the 64 version. You won't miss out on any levels...They're the same...

Rumble Pak 7 out of 10

Although the game featured rumble pack capability it wasn't really worth it. The rumble pack really didn't do a good job because it seemed to have been more of an annoyance rather than helping the game. The game-play was the same but it did make it more of a frightening feeling when the controller shakes because some monster is shooting at you from behind or above and you didn't see it. I enjoyed the rumble pack until I realized that the game really didn't need it, it was a fairly good game without the rumble pack. I think that many will disagree but i didn't find it necessary to add rumble pack capability to this game.


This game was very frustrating because i ended up lost most of the time and when I did find my way i would have to go back to open a door later on. Besides this point the only other frustration I had was the fact that the game was just about exactly the same as the computer version, with some objects moved around. I was also frustrated with the blurring of some stages and the blockiness of others, but I enjoyed the game...sort of.

Replayability 5 out of 10

I don't really think that I will play this game again because the fact that it got pretty boring after a while...not to mention frustrating. I asked my brother if he ever wanted to play the game again and he looked straight at me and said, "No way in hell." As you can tell he didn't enjoy the game much either. Well I guess another reason that I probably won't play it is because I'm not gonna waste my time playing a game that is very similar to the computer version which I own.

Game Value 7 out of 10

I don't think that the value of the game was worth the $60-$70 price range that it is set in. Mainly because the computer game is sold for about $40-$60 and that has every single stage that the 64 version does. I think that the game should be a little cheaper than the computer version because there were some things that are disappointing about the 64 version that are not rue about the computer version. If you own any version of Quake, i suggest that you skip this one because it isn't as good as we all hoped it would be.

Overall 7 out of 10
