In 1996, id Software released Quake. id is no stranger to iconic titles, especially since making Wolfenstein 3D and DOOM. Unlike those aforementioned titles, Quake is pure 3D. It is also pure gold to most first-person shooter fans. While the first Quake is archaic and obsolete in today's gaming culture, it is still an incredible title and the start of an amazing franchise. This blog post offers a look at the first Quake.

Quake is a Mature-rated game. There is blood and gore in this game along with some gun violence.


Get to know Quake with this section...

^ from: - This is Quake for PC.

The story of Quake involves four Runes being held by four fierce bosses in four different time eras. The evil Shub-Nigguarth rules overall. Saving the world means going through these four different time periods as well as defeating Shub-Niggurath once all four Runes have been collected. Can you defeat Shub-Niggurath and her minions? Quake was released for both PC and even the Nintendo 64.

This game does House of Pain proud in the sense of, "if you come to battle, bring a shotgun." You also have an axe as your melee weapon. So your early weapon choices aren't basic. This game is MUCH different than most first-person shooters in that your first weapon is a shotgun. You can find more powerful weapons to give you an extra edge. Enemies range from ravenous wolves, to knights, to even the fearsome Shambler.

When you start, you must choose between three difficulty levels- Easy, Normal, and Hard. Be careful with the Hard because you have to jump over lava to access the portal. You then select one of the four different realms. Collect items such as ammo, armor, and even the VERY helpful Quad Damage. You may need to solve puzzles or do some swimming. Whatever it takes to survive, do so.

One of the cool things about Quake was the multiplayer action. Without consulting any resources in my research, I think Quake 1 allowed for as many as 16 players at once. This was pretty impressive considering a game of its age. Also cool about Quake is if you're a Trent Reznor fan. Collecting ammo for one weapon bears the Nine Inch Nails logo.

It has been so long since I remember playing Quake 1. So my little preview of the game is rather limited. Time now for a review. Next section...

Quake: Final Thoughts

If you thought Wolfenstein 3D and DOOM offered intense action, you haven't seen ANYTHING yet until you play Quake. Quake has loads of challenge and replay value. It was a game changer for sure. This game delivers some great graphics for its time. Modern first-person shooters would overwhelm Quake, but Quake is very much a game that was ahead of its time. It offers plenty of excitement and intense moments sure to keep any gamer fascinated and intrigued. Even if it is more than 20 years old, it is still a solid addition to any true gamer's game collection.

Video Preview.

Here is a sample of what Quake has to offer:
