Overall its quite a nice game.
Good sounds and graphics but the lack of a clear storyline and a not very biG Multi-Community makes the game not very recommedable.
I do recommend Same Year Release Unreal Tournament from Epic Megagames.
(more mods availible too)
Overall score: a minor 7, but still recommend Quake 3 Arena. (read more)

Playing the Quake 3 Arena at the start is very hard, I used to play all my games on the joypad, but I soon learned that was too slow, so trying to learn how to play using the mouse was hard, but once that I had worked it out and it did not feel WEIRD the game just got better and better! As you progress through the game your speed of reaction gets faster and faster so that after a while you rail with out thinking, rail is the way forward but it talks a level of skill that has taken a long...

This game is the absolute worst game ever made by id software. All the bad points above say it all. Worst game ever made.
It's hard to believe that i enjoy playing games on a 286 more than this.
Not to say that id software is bad, just the Quake 3 game is no good im my opinion. Quake 1 and 2 were not so bad though. (read more)

Quake 2 was better than Quake 3 Arena game on the PC.
#1 This game doesn't capture the IMPACT of death that quake 2 did. The Sound Effects of a death suck here.
The animation of gibbing someone doesn't feel like Quake 2's "Hamburger Meat" splat!
This game's deaths are ridiculous. I never feel as if I'm being hit. All the weapons are rapid fire, even the BFG.
Only the Railgun seems to keep the feeling of heavy bodily damage.
The starting weapon is an UGLY machine gun that you can shoot... (read more)

When I first got this game I wasn't a huge fan of 1st person shooters, but after seeing my brother play I had to try it.
And I loved it!!!
Gameplay is excellent with INTELLIGENT AI. The AI can be configured from easy to hard to nightmare and will help you refine your combat skills & accuracy (a must with the Railgun)
Graphics are absolutely delicious, a gore lovers delight.
Blood splatters, mutilated bodies, bullet holes & burn marks all over the place.
Sound is the best I've heard on this... (read more)

This is a great game. I think its much better than unreal tournament. However, I found the controls abit fiddly when I first played it, but I realised that you would change them. I bought this at a real bargain, at £10. And I didnt expect it to be so great, but it was better than I had expected. (read more)

This game is absolutely awesome! If you are looking for a good game that is fun and takes time to beat, YOU NEED THIS! It is the best game ever. In other games you are drooling all over yourself from the intense boredom, where when you play this you are flooding the house because of the radical graphics! Games like unreal tournament are good competition, yet nothing beats the awesome gameplay and graphics of Quake III Arena!!! (read more)

This is a great game but is beaten hands down by Unreal tournament. It lacks the mood created by unreal fantastic sound effects and excellent maps. The weapons are far more creative too. (read more)
