    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 online game which i... Read Full Review

    _The_ Game.

    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 good game) no fancy... Read Full Review

    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 that hte community was... Read Full Review

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

    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 you do is move, spot... Read Full Review

    "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 one in particular, ... Read Full Review

    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 DeathMatch? And Qu... Read Full Review

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

    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 at home, I never pla... Read Full Review

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

    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 single player is usua... Read Full Review
