    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 aA garbage version of Quake III Arena.

    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. Expand

    At the end of the day, Quake Arena Arcade is a virtual ghost town, but if players are willing to give it a crack, it's one serious shooter that is worthy of your attention.

    This is undoubtedly Quake as it was in its heyday, and it's as playable as it always was. If a few more of you would just start playing it, we might all be able to enjoy it a bit more.

    A fun game. There's little to criticize here, save a price on the higher end of the XBLA spectrum, but you really can't compete with free.
