    I gave it an 8 because it really is a fast paced action shooter. I think I have an answer for Peter K. though. Compared to other games out at the time, like unreal 3, Quake 3 Arena was an improvement, only over it's other Quake games. And it was coming out around the time people were expecting improvements over gaming, Im sure. Unreal 3 especially had a much better look.

While, the graphics are dated, it has a lot of intersting character choices and arenas. I love playing the DoomGuy. Another downside though, I wish the taunts were more realistic to what they were. Like the DoomGuy had DOOm related taunts. Its at least better than playing the Dreamcast version. But graphically it has its ups and downs. Expand

    The First real game MP in the world, with a lot of mods realised by a really nice community! I can propse u to try some mods like TrueCombat (Total conversion : realistic mods ) totally submersif ans addictive. TrueCombat have now a young brother : TC:Elite on Wolfestein ( using Q3 3D motor) but i prefer q3 original and Truecombat for the design and the player movement realist ..just try The First real game MP in the world, with a lot of mods realised by a really nice community!

    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.

    In playtesting, I found that a number of new additions to the interface simply get in the way of gameplay.
  2. This should have been included with the original game, or as a free download a month or two after Q3A came out.
  3. A solid mission pack, adding a whole new team element. Team organization is something that is evolving in online multiplayer gaming, and it's nice to see Quake join the fray.
