    Despite its flaws, Nintendo 64 owners looking for the Quake experience can't go wrong with this game -- if for single-player mode alone. However, seasoned Quakers looking for the ultimate multiplayer game may want to rent before they buy.
  2. If Quake is a game experience you don't want to miss, and if a Nintendo is all you have, then Quake 64 is your ticket.
  3. Playing Quake is like living a horror movie. The game simply gushes atmosphere from every slime-coated, ambient lighted, gothic architectural artery.
  4. But be forewarned. If you are expecting to get the same experience that you've been hearing about from rabid PC gamers, you aren't going to get it. Quake for the PC was an okay game made great by the superb online options and an open architecture.
  5. It's Quake, what else do I have to say?
  6. If you've never played Quake on any machine before, this is one of the best versions available this side of the original PC game.
  7. Though the enemies aren't programmed well enough to follow you around many corners and elevators like they would in Turok or Bond, the surprises and just sheer craziness of attacking enemies makes Quake64 a game that freaks you out.
  8. I knew there was no way Quake 64 could pull off a control scheme as fluid as my PC setup. But it comes close, and I have to give it credit for that.

So much so that when your caught by surprise you will jump, because you feel a part of the world. The game has weight. Ambience for a soundtrack and level design that encourages replays.
    I found Hard mode to be more challenging than Nightmare because the grunts grenades are less predictable. The PC version has more levels but they picked the best of the bunch for the N64. Now onto Quake 2 and 4 for the Xbox 360. Just dropped through my post today :)

    Probably the only competitive FPS (or even video game) for Nintendo 64. I mean, the only great and hard FPS for this console: Quake.

    Graphics are sub par compared to the PC version that now has been converted to above doom stanards but its fun! Its Quake!
