Its the best multiplayer game i've played in my opinion and brought a new and advanced new engine in 1999, a Engine that a lot of big video game companies used for about five or six years... and that's good.

Fast, complex skill-based gameplay like the Quake series (including, of course, Q3A) is a breath of fresh air these days, where games with snail-slow movement, nearly insta-gib weapons, RPG item unlocks, and regenerating health can still somehow be labeled "competitive".

    It is truly among the finest in the Deathmatch genre.

    The single player aspect would get a 7 or a 6 just because. I just don't think this game works as well with bots as it would online.

    The single player aspect would get a 7 or a 6 just because. I just don't think this game works as well with bots as it would online.

    That being said, the single player is decent, and can be quite fun, but there's times where it's quite frustrating. Reason being is hunting down someone to blast them away can take a while, especially if you're unfamliar with maps, weapon locations, etc. It started out as fun, but it got old after a while.

    The weapons themselfs were good, except the machine gun. Horrid starting weapon. But then again, it is just a starting weapon. I never got used to the Rail Gun either, but that's probably because I don't use it much. The classic Quake/Doom guns are present, with a shotgun, rocket launcher, Grenade Launcher, Plasma Rifle, Rail Gun, and BFG 10K, including powerups. Most of the time, I didn't really find myself cursing that I was only able to get certain weapons...well except the Rail Gun, but then again, I was never that good at using it.

    Gonna go play online sometime. I'm pretty sure it's a blast to play online against others, especially since there's mods and custom games and much more.
