As well as the single-player campaign Quake really comes into its own in multiplayer, it is still one of the most widely played online games of all time where armed with a grenade launcher you can wreak your revenge on everyone that ever crossed you.
The sequel Quake 2, is basically Quake with better graphics and more weapons, you are still battling the same nasties this time you are the sole survivor of a last-ditch assault force sent against the Strogg's mysterious alien home world. Starting your mission with only a pistol, you'll eventually scavenge much more impressive weaponry from those less fortunate squad mates who didn't quite make it.
Of course, if you're feeling a little more social, you can put off saving the world and opt for Quake II's multiplayer mode, which allows one, two, or three additional players to join in the action. There are four setups for the multiplayer mode, ranging from the standard everyone-for-themselves mode to capture the flag.
The most recent Quake outing was purely multiplayer. Quake 3: Arena transports players into a violent, virtual world filled with deadly weapons, impressive power-ups and intense combat. Players compete on 26 maps in either death match (free-for-all or team play), with goals to rack up as many kills as possible; or capture the flag, a team-oriented game with scoring based on the number of enemy flag captures.
What is really impressive is Quake3's 3-D engine. The 26 maps are filled with exquisite architecture and impressive special effects; further, Quake 3 provides dozens of highly detailed player models to choose from. Basically this is still a great franchise and one that other games strive to equal.--Simon Fisk
