    The trip to Vietnam leaves us with mixed feelings. On the one hand, the add-on keeps the high standard of the main game, but on the other hand, there are not many new things. Despite the few vehicles and minor changes in the weapon section, there isn't much new to discover.

    A classic from the Sega Dreamcast, Quake Arena translates very well on the 360. All of the characters, levels and weapons are intact. Slightly-improved graphics and faster gameplay round out this update. However, compared to other online shooters this game hasn't aged well and can feel a little clunky at times (especially considering that the "aim down sights" button in other games is the "jump" button in this game). And of course, being as this is an multiplayer game, the single-player "campaign" feels tacked-on, merely serving as a warm-up for playing against human players. Despite this, there's no denying the nostalgia and charm Quake Arena Arcade gives. Full Review »

    Even though the net coding is really bad, QAA is still the best multiplayer first person shooter on the xbox at the moment. It's fast-paced, intelligent, and competitive. Full Review »

    A garbage version of Quake III Arena. If you play THIS Quake (along with Quake 4), please, don't think that all QUAKEs are like that. This game is not open (well... sure, that's for consoles), the multiplayer is not so bad but also not so good, the maps are limited, and there are missing a lot of things. Also, how can you STRAFE, especially when you AIM and SHOOT? Not recommended. Buy a computer and play the original Quake III Arena. Full Review »
