Sorry about the delay in my reply. We got swamped at work, and in the rush, I forgot that I owed you a post!
I checked out the website and had a look at their screenshots and testemonials. Their product looks like an adequate 3D engine, though I'm a little worried that the only testemonials came from non-game companies. There's a huge difference between being able to do good architectural visualizations and being able to run a good 3D game!
Honestly, the only way to tell if the tool is any good is to download some demos and try it for yourself. Their products look good enough to warrant that investigation.
As for being able to make games without writing code...this might be the wave of the future. I have some friends in the industry who are currently experimenting with VirTools (www.virtools.com). They have nothing but great things to say about the product--they got a fully 3D basketball player running around a court and dribbling the ball up and running in 5 minutes(!). Like Quest3D, VirTools' code interface is almost completely flow-chart driven (at least, from what I've heard), making it insanely easy to throw together impressive demos from existing objects. Be forewarned, though--there is no substitute for writing your own custom code, and I have no idea how Quest3D or VirTools handles such cases...
If you want to become a level designer, a CS degree won't hurt, but it probably won't help much, either. Level designers typically require a skill set only partially overlapping that of Programmers. Often, they need equally good (or better) art skills (to build the levels in 3DS Max, etc). By far, the most important factor in getting you hired as a designer is to have designed your own levels for *something*. Start making Quake 2 maps, work on a Half-Life mod, etc--but build a portfolio of levels that shows your ability to think creatively and use existing tools to do interesting (i.e., experimental and fun) things.
OK--so ends this post. As usual, I hope you found something useful in it. I'll try to reply more quickly, next time.

: I just want a favor if you have the time of course.Could you have a look at the site www.quest3d.com ?They have a very interesting engine but also a new programming way that is more of a visual programming.Thanks and I am waiting your comments.
: By the way,what does it takes to become a level designer?I mean,a computer science degree will help?
