    Quake Live may be a 10-year-old shooter, but it's still a rush. [Nov 2010, p.85]

However, the little tweaks of Quake Live with the game system are great (though not perfect). The game play is generally the same with Quake 3, but with apparent playing style changes because of these tweaks. The changes are, mostly, positive. The good things, like the great fast tempo of Quake 3 and the emphasis on moving and thinking (besides of shooting, of course) are preserved. Faster rocket speed, weaker rail gun, new spawn system made the game more favorable to aggresive players and more balanced. New visual effects make the graphics of the game acceptable even nowadays (almost 11 years after the release of Quake 3), and new hitbeep and other little things make the game very pleasant for competitive play. The tier system (which needs more work) makes players of different level able to enjoy the game. More can be done to make this game even better, but now it is already a brilliant piece (and it is partially free as well) and will easily kill your spare time. Expand

I was a fan of Quake 2,Quake is a legendary series and made by the software company that introduced us to First Person Shooters, ID Software. I was a fan of Quake 2, Quake 2 and Quake 3. What I love about QuakeLIVE is they took a very difficult game to get involved in, because of; patches, mods, maps, servers, configurations, and the other details you might need to look into before you started playing. Now QuakeLIVE takes Quake 3, touches it up, makes it super simple to get playing, patches automatically and now even gives you the ability to have a membership that allows you to host private games. Since this game is free, there's no reason you shouldn't at least try it out; www.quakelive.com Expand

You thought the original Quake was fast-paced? Well, in Quake Live, Id Software cranked up the speed a few notches, making for amazingly chaotic multiplayer matches. There are many different game modes to choose from, and plenty of maps that reference to older Quake games. Its also no long browser-based. Pretty recently, players are now able to download it.

    The reasons people flocking to Quake Live is, I think are the following. If people are playing, they are also paying which keeps Quake LiveThe reasons people flocking to Quake Live is, I think are the following. If people are playing, they are also paying which keeps Quake Live and well!! The game just short of fantastic. There are many people playing Quake Live. I`m in high school and during lunch the library staff lets us play Quake Live on the school computers.
    I just cannot believe all the people who LOVE Quake Live.
    I am also amazed at the value you get if you purchase a Premium or even a Pro membership!!
    I will say this much -- Kudos to all the peeps at Quake Live for making this into the #! First person shooter in the world!!

    I first played Quake 3 Arena on the Dreamcast and I loved the fast paced nature and the physics of the Quake 3 engine. Later on, I got Q3A forI first played Quake 3 Arena on the Dreamcast and I loved the fast paced nature and the physics of the Quake 3 engine. Later on, I got Q3A for the PC and loved the mods but was quickly turned off by the fact it was extremely hard to improve in the game due to the high competitiveness. QuakeLive changes all that. With the "tier" system, you can judge the average skill level of people found in a game. You can often times prevent yourself from getting completely slaughtered by choosing a matched game. With the stat tracking, friends list, accomplishments, 40 arenas, 5 game modes and premium and pro subscriptions, this game promises to take weeks of your life away. Expand

I paid $19.99 for Quake 3 to find out they have released a game that has Quake 3 graphics and Quake 3 characters for the price I paid for Quake 3, they should have just updated that. Not only do we need to download a bunch of stuff to play this, we need to take care of our browser and don't delete certain cookies and other things cause this game won't play if its corrupted. Furthermore, this seems like a get rich scheme just like BF4FREE all these games take features from the original game and make you pay. Quake 3 could have had these updates, but you know they want to make money WBGS will not approve ad filled loading screens and a subscription-based games that are clones of the original Quake 3 when they could have just updated Quake 3 stop ripping us gamers off.
