Quake 4 is the first game to utilize id Software’s revolutionary DOOM 3 technology. In the game, you are Matthew Kane, an elite member of Rhino Squad and Earth’s valiant invasion force. Fight alone, with your squad, and in hover tanks and mechanized walkers as you engage in a heroic mission into the heart of the Strogg war machine. But, in this epic war between worlds, the only way to defeat the Strogg is to become one of them. Battle through early missions as a deadly marine, then after your capture as a marine-turned-Strogg with enhanced abilities and the power to turn the tide of the war. [Activision]

Great game, I like Doom 3 but this is the most badass, and interesting game of their work yet. It so well orchestrated, and I enjoyed every moment of it, I want a proper sequel!!!100Count69
The vehicles really set Quake apart from its cousin “Doom,” as levels with vehicles almost always involve huge outdoor areas swarming with bad guys.100Detroit Free Press
An addiction, a perfect sequel, both in story and gameplay, and a game you will want to explore over and over.97Game Chronicles

Quake 4 is not pretentious. It’s a hardcore shooter in which you don’t have to be a hardcore gamer to experience.90Cheat Code Central
Quake IV shows no mercy.90Maxim Online
The multiplayer action is fast-paced and furious, just like Quake multiplayer should be and the single-player campaign feels just like it should, even if it is linear.90Thunderbolt
Quake 4 is everything that fans loved about Quake 2 and 3 in one package, providing an engaging single-player story and chaotic high-flying multiplayer.89GameTrailers
Games this good are extremely rare things, and as such they should be applauded. [Dec 2005 p.80]88PC Format
Basically, Quake 4 took the ball that “Doom 3” started carrying and runs with it in a different direction, one that, for the most part, vastly outshines the original bearer of the engine.87Worth Playing

Quake 4 is a perfectly competent shooter that somehow suffers from identity crisis.70Tomle1202
Game was released after DOOM 3 which was better game for me Even so, game was still good to play, with unique atmosphere and lots of gunplay. But also weakest Quake game I ever played.70Genek13
Quake 4 is great oldschool shooter. It doesn’t bring anything new to the table, but it is solid craftsmanship done by the masters of FPS genre.70RagingPoet
