Quake 4 is a must-have for gamers looking for traditional first-person shooter action.

Le jeu, même si il a beaucoup été critiqué du côté obscur de l'informatique, reste un bon divertissement. De plus, quand on regarde la ludothèque disponible sur Mac, on est réellement très content de trouver l'accès à un tel jeu. Avec un moteur graphique et physique aussi pointu, on prend vraiment plaisir à jouer. Le solo est un régal pour ceux qui connaîtraient Doom3 sur le bout des doigts et qui voudraient un peu de "sang" neuf. Le multi, même s'il reste loin de Quake 3 Arena reste amusant pour quelques parties mais n'aura jamais le culte qu'ont voué les joueurs à son prédécesseur. Le solo reste un excellent jeu pour se faire de bonnes frayeurs les jours d'orages. L'ambiance, les mouvements en continu du décor et des personnages non joueurs rendent le jeu vivant et agréable à suivre.

In all, Quake 4 is a blast. Combining top-notch graphics, squad-based tactical gunplay, a dark and engrossing story, and a grosser enemy, Quake 4's singleplayer shines. With the wide selection of interesting weapons (made even more "interesting" with powerful modifications), shootouts are fun to replay over and over again in order to find out how well certain weapon combinations work, or just to pound the crap out of the "squibs" over and over again.

Quake 4 doesn't advance the first-person shooter in any way, but that's fine; I believe that part of the continuing popularity in first-person shooters is their familiarity—gamers can install them and start playing without reading a manual or bothering to learn new controls. What Quake 4 does do is take most of the important elements in games of this type and polish them all up to a nice shine. The game is simply well developed, and it plays as if the developers at Raven had gripes about other first-person shooters and set to create one that corrected them. I mean, if they created a bio-mutant zombie Nazi alien first-person shooter that I can enjoy, then I can only imagine what genre fans will think of it.

The Mac conversion of Quake 4 has been a long time coming; if you’re a first-person shooter fan, it’s been well worth the wait. The game has the highest production value of any first-person shooter I’ve seen since Doom 3 and terrific single-player gameplay. Unfortunately, as I noted in my first look at Quake 4, multiplayer modes left me wanting more.
