    Just one of the best FPS's in the world

    Quake 3 Arena : a title everyone should know. It's just amazing. For starters the single-player mode is brilliant. The bots are quite a match if you put it on high difficulty. But the real deal is the...

    _The_ Game.

    Rated on July 19, 2006 by igl

    It is a myth to me, why there aren't any attempts to copy this game, because it can't get any better. Sure it has no huge maps (it has as custom maps) no huge 64 player battles (not really makes a...

    I never really could get into Quake 3. Being a longtime TFC player, I wanted to see how QTF was. I bought a copy off ebay for pretty cheap and installed it. I was pretty disappointed to find out th...

    Forget about all the reviews from 1999! This is a review from 2006!

    Rated on July 22, 2006 by someone6669

    If you look at all the reviews from 1999, you will find people crazy about this game. Maybe it was good then. However, in 2006, this game royally sucks. There is no depth into the game at all. All ...

    "Here we go again." These words will be prevalent on your mind throughout the Quake III Arena Experience. Quake III is the latest installment in the Quake series, which puts you in the shoes of no...

    It's not a very well-rounded game, and at the end of the day, that lack of variety is why Quake III was a failure.

    There was a time when id Software was famous for making innovative and awesome games. Remember Wolfenstein 3D, the granddaddy of the FPS? And Doom, the one that put the genre on the map, and gave us...

    I started playing this when I was twelve and I STILL love it.

    Rated on July 28, 2006 by LusikkaMage

    Not exactly the type of game you'd expect a 12 year old girl to love, but I used to play it all the time back then, and I still do on occasion now that I'm 18. At LAN parties, I'll own at UT2k4, but ...

    Great Deathmatch Experience, but is not for die-hard fans of CTF

    Rated on October 03, 2004 by sirgamer88

    I got Quake III a few weeks ago, and even though the graphics aren't as good compared to games today but at that time they were great. The problem with most "online-Multiplayer shooters" is that the s...
