CU Amiga (Jun, 1998)
The arrival of Quake is a real bonus for the Amiga. It is the most technically advanced game the platform has ever seen, and it has an enormous amount to offer the player. Some people will complain that the system requirements are too high, but on the highest spec machine available – Zorro 3 graphics card and 66 Mhz '060 – it runs very nicely, and that is the power tha PC owners had to upgrade from, not to, to play Quake. Quake is a jaw dropping game. It is utterly engrossing and enormous in extent, thanks in large part to the range of add ons. Quake totally dominated the PC games world from the day it was released to the day Quake 2 was released, and it deserved to. Nintendo 64 and Playstation owners are howling for this game, but we've got it first and we also have the Internet and QuakeC facilities the console versions can't touch. Quake is the king of games – buy it.

Quake är spelet som många har väntat på. En del av er har nog provat på på PC någon gång och vet vad det handlar om. Det är ett mycket avancerat 3D-actionspel, ett av de bästa som någonsin gjorts till datorer påstår en del. Skillnaden mellan Amiga- och PC-versionen är minimal, det enda som märks är att du kan använda menyer till inställningar i Amigaversionen.
Amiga Format (Jun, 1998)
Oh boy. All we’ve ever had are clones on the Amiga - Testament, Nemac IV and a handful of the others have been good games in their own rights but it’s obvious they’re Doom clones. Good Doom clones though, because although they look pretty shoddy in parts (some of the monsters in Testament are very 1988), they were great fun to actually play. But for one, and possibly the biggest genre, the day of making do with clones are over. Make way for Quake. The heavy metallic clang, clang, clang of a grenade bouncing before exploding in a shower of light and destructive energy is a marvellous thing and something that’s hard to grow weary of. You’ll experience this many times in Quake as you fight your way through the many levels of the game’s three episodes.
