  • Summary: Heart-pounding gameplay, spectacular graphics and brain-shattering sound effects - guaranteed to have players jumping out of their skins! Incorporates the ferocity of the single-player game with the ultimate bloodlust of the two-player splitscreen Deathmatch. A true 3D polygonal environment that includes the most horrific creatures to grace a console. Startling dynamic lighting, levels designed by the masters, and an arsenal of the most awesome weaponry to match. Collapse

  1. Playing Quake is like living a horror movie. The game simply gushes atmosphere from every slime-coated, ambient lighted, gothic architectural artery.

    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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. It's Quake, what else do I have to say?

    This game has great gameplay. I can play it for days. The Graphics are not high-res but still good.

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

    Probably the only competitive FPS (or even video game) for Nintendo 64. I mean, the only great and hard FPS for this console: Quake. Probably the best game ever made. I've already written a review for the PC version. Expand
