Product Description

Product Description

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Quake series, the popular PC game puts players in a violent world in which the point is to collect weapons and kill as many opponents as you can. While not without its flaws, Quake III Arena goes well beyond just mimicking this experience for Dreamcast users. It's the best PC-to-console port yet.

Quake III Arena is the first title to allow multiplayer, real-time networked gaming between Dreamcast and PC players. Hooking up through the SegaNet servers, players can go online and shoot it out with other people around the world for the first time in console history. (We played with a keyboard and a mouse--the only way Quake III should ever be played--and with them we exacted my punishment on more than just a few unsuspecting patrons.)

A full slate of 25 nasty warriors has been rolled out for the Dreamcast game. The weapons--which range from shotguns and rocket launchers to lightning guns and plasma guns--and effects also are packed in tighter than Charlie Tuna in his can. It also has all of the nifty springboards, quad damage, space-age dungeons, and everything that we loved about our favorite shooter on the PC.

The Dreamcast version has a large variety of gameplay options, including single player, free-for-all, tournament, team deathmatch, and capture the flag, most of which are open for play in two-to-four-player split-screen mode. The game's rendering engine achieves smooth and realistic texturing, and stunning environmental effects. The environments in particular are great, with dazzling sky textures leading the way. Also, the geometry and large, detailed textures of the character models make them the envy of the console world.

The character's movements in Quake III Arena didn't feel nearly as smooth as in the PC version, because of a rather slow framerate. Compared to the PC version, this one makes you feel like you're battling with one leg in concre

Quake 3 Arena is one of the heirs of Doom, the first-person shooter that defined the genre. This version is based on the PC sequel that evolved from the single-player adventures of its predecessors into a network-based gaming experience. And since it is compatible with that PC version, it marks the first time players of any console can compete with--or against--the thousands of PC competitors online (PC users must download special Dreamcast-compatible maps to play). This version features 26 levels of maps and 24 warriors to slaughter with shotguns, lightning and plasma guns, and rocket launchers.

WARNING: If you don't have a keyboard and a mouse, you might consider buying them before you purchase this game. It's really impossible to play well using the game controller. You'll get blown away so fast as you try to aim. Aside from the game control the game is amazing. The graphics are outstanding, especially on a VGA monitor. The game play is fast. There is virtually no lag time on the broadband even with four players. On the 56K connection, there is an occational lag, and I have yet to be booted out of the connection. Of course, playing on-line is the key to this game. Online game play is extremely addictive. There are plenty of levels to chose from--I think 30 or so. One player game is fun too. But the opponents are tough (maybe because I am a beginner). I'd say this is one of the must-purchase games for the Dreamcast.

Quake 3 has some of the best graphics i have seen on the dreamcast. Besides the graphics, the gameplay is good too. This game really shines in the multiplayer and internet sections. It is so much fun to play online against people, and frag the hell outta them! =) I only occasionaly recieve lag while playing online. It is also fun to play a split-screen game against your friened. Why not 5 stars? The single player game gets old, quick. Its just you in arena going against computer AI players. If only they made the gameplay like quake 2 it would deserve 5 stars. Still, overall its a great game. I only occasionaly recieve lag while playing online.
P.S If you see "TREND" on a seganet server, prepare to be fragged! =)

This is with out a doubt one of the best looking DC games out there.. The graphics are ultra killer, and there is no slow down to be found anywhere.. This is even better than PS2's Unreal Tournamnet. Yup yup, it sure is. Anyway, besides the graphics, the gameplay is the best found on a 1st person shooter, fast and intense action the way it's suppose to be, blood and guts will fly when you frag someone w/ your rocket launcher.. The weapons are very impressive looking, the best ones are the plasma gun, and the rocket launcher.. It's too bad that they took away the super shot gun that was in Q2.. Anyway, besides the weapons, this game is a game to behold, get online w/ it and meet fellow Q3 fanatics and join a bloody clan! This is as good as it gets, folks. If you don't have this game, BUY IT! It's the best 1st person shooter out there, but be on the look out for Half Life on the DC! Quake 3 Rules!

I have never been a fan of Quake until I played it on the Sega Dreamcast. Since Sega was smart when they made the Dreamcast, they built in a modem, and that is what makes the game so awesome. This is one of the first games to use the Dreamcast's modem, but dozens more are on the way.
Personally, I can't wait for Phantasy Star Online, but this is a Quake 3 reveiw, and I will tell you, your money won't be waisted if you buy this game, it is truly awesome, and the lag is actually better than it is when I play this game on my PC! See you online.

After playing Unreal Tournament I expected, a lot more but what to do. Personally Dreamcast is my favourite console. I also have a PS2 nad a PSP but my favourite one is DC. First it's too hard to aim to your enemy and contorls are a bit too hard. Graphics are amazing and the sounds are ok. Specially the atmosphere is amazing. There are only a few of us Dreamcast users left and I think we should own every single game that we can find for it. Q3 is not a bad game. Unreal is much better but it is absolutelly better than the Rainbow Six series. And in multiplayer mod I had amazing fun with 3 friends of mine. So considering the price I can recommend you this game.

This game is godly. I must say, it takes advantage of the grafix and speed of how the dreamcast system is capable of. Also, this game blows away Unreal Tournament, I hate UT so bad. This surpasses it in all categories. You people that say you need a mouse and keyboard, you are so wrong. It takes real skill to use the control, there fore improving your skillz. I am a counter-strike player, so dropping down to a controller is much more entertaining. It can be a pain but it only took me a few hours to get good with the controls. If you are a shoot em up / action fan, this is a great game to add to your collection. The grafix are superb, along with everything else. If you dont have Internet connection on it, just have 1 or more friend(s) over and rock. I had my friend over for about a WEEK straight playing this, like 15 hours a day. But we had to take it back cause it was a rental. I am not a freak this game is so addictive. Also as someone said, the more the marrier. Which is so true. 2 Players VS 2 Computers is so fun, and adding more friends or computers make the game so much better. Also, the computers AI is quite good. On Easy you will probably get your butt kicked if your a first time, but you'll progress and jack up the AI for more action n fun. This game is godly compared to UT because the faster gameplay and the grafix are so much better. People dont like DC because it is a past system, it makes me mad considering this is 1 of the many games on DC that equals or surpasses similar titles on a PS2. At first when you rent or buy the game, you sit down and start it up. You go to options and look at the buttons and your probably thinking " what the hell?? " but after a few hours you get used to this game and you could be addicted to this like I am. Well overall I give this game a 9.7 / 10.Read more ›
