  • Summary: The first official expansion pack for "Quake 3" includes several new capture-the-flag and deathmatch maps, and now teams can design their own skins and logos as well as choose from different character heads.

  1. A great add-on for fans of the Quake series and multiplayer mayhem. This is a must have for the frag fanatic.
  2. As an add-on pack, Team Arena rocks. It adds everything I wanted to see in "Quake III Arena," but wasn't actually there.
  3. A polished, tried and true gameplay experience, that, while not necessarily the most innovative, is a heck of a lot of fun.
  4. Though its new features may not seem remarkable individually, when put together they comprise a number of interesting new strategies and also let experienced players organize team-based games based on those strategies.
  5. What it was designed to do, it does very well. It barely makes a pretense of doing anything else, however—extra bells and whistles are definitely not part of the package.
  6. This should have been included with the original game, or as a free download a month or two after Q3A came out.
  7. While the power-ups are well done and Harvester and One Flag CTF are a lot of fun, this expansion pack will more than likely collect dust instead of frags.

    As a huge Q3 fan, I'm sad that this isn't in Q3. It adds next to nothing to the already existing experience and essence of Q3 when it's standalone. Combined, it could have been fun and had a lot of potential, but sadly that didn't happen. This "game" is not good in its own right, as it basically is an expansion pack or a mod for Q3. That's why it's not going to have more than an 8. Expand
