Product Description

This is the highly anticipated next installment in the Quake series of adventure games. Quake 3: Arena continues the action of the earlier two games but adds more intense action, surreal graphics, and a phenomenal multiplayer mode. Three player classes (light, medium, and heavy) with their own strength, speed, and armor levels, together with new characters and weapons (plus old favorites, such as the BFG), make this a thrilling first-person shooter game. The game also features body armor and health kits to help keep you alive.

Quake 3 makes for an exhilarating single-player game, but to truly discover what makes this game great, try out the mulitplayer mode for up to 32 players in one-on-one matches or group conquests.

From the Manufacturer

Hard-wired action is yours for the taking in single-player and multiplayer battles. Your opponents are now personalized for your brutalizing pleasure. These warriors may not be living and breathing, but they'll make sure you aren't either. Feed on raw action, build your fragging muscles, then rack up live death-match kills on the Internet or local area network.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hottest PC Game this year! December 15, 1999
Verified Purchase
To say that Quake 3 lives up to the hype is an understatement. I'll admit that, with the exception of the incredible graphics, I was a bit underwhelmed by the downloadable demo.
The final game, however, is fantastic. The bots are great fun - they play with a variety of different styles and "personalities" that make them very life-like. As mentioned above, the graphics are mind-blowing. Q3 is the first and presently the only 3D game that I'm aware of that uses curved surfaces, and they vastly improve the visual appeal of the various environments. The levels are a bit monotonous from a "decorative" point of view, but for actual playability they offer a great deal of variety and are very fast-paced. The jump pads increase the flexibility of the maps to a great extent, allowing players to quickly move vertically.
While the Quake series has been traditionally enjoyed most by the "hard-core" gamers, id software did a good job of providing a few introductory levels in Quake 3 to let the newbies practice their skills a little bit before being thrown into the fire. And Quake is by far the reigning king of Internet play - according to id's statistics, 500-1700 people worldwide join Q3 Internet games every 5 minutes.
Before purchasing, pay close attention to the system requirements. Most mid- to high-end computers purchased in the last 18 months will run Q3 just fine, but some will require upgraded video cards (cards based on NVidia's TNT/GeForce or 3DFX's Voodoo technology are best).
Happy Fragging!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Quite A Review... November 22, 1999
I can't review the final product since it just went gold today and hasn't been released in stores, but I have played the DemoTest of the game, and would offer the following comments:
This game requires a lot of energy to play. If you want to sit and relax in front of your computer, then don't try to play Quake 3. Save it for the times when you have lots of pent up aggression and energy. With hard-hitting sound effects, slick graphics and over-the-top gore, Quake 3 is a very satisfying way to release it.
Quake 3 is a fighting game, like Mortal Kombat -- you progress through the game by killing all your opponents. There is also a Capture The Flag option, which is a more strategic, team-based style of play. Both of these modes are playable over the internet or local network against other humans, by yourself with computer-controlled teammates and opponents, or a combination of the two.
Quake 3 *requires* a 3D video accelerator, such as a Voodoo 3 or TNT2. Make sure you have one of these in your computer before trying this game.
I would highly recommend this game to anyone who loves fast-paced action, gore, and state-of-the-art graphics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why are so many people ignorant? December 19, 1999
By N. Chan
This is a comparison between Q3 (quake 3) and UT (UnrealTournament), the two big first person shooters in the gaming arena. Togive you a little background, I am a game reviewer for Game-Guru. I don't want to give a big comparison between UT and Q3, I just want to explain why Q3 is the better game, overall.
First of all, even though gameplay is very important, you have to consider the graphics and level design. Q3's graphics are the best out there, with volumetric textures, curved surfaces, and secular lighting. Thihs allows for organic level disign, while UT's levels are blocky and feel like lego blocks. Although Quake's levels do revolve around a single theme, and UT's has various themes, the detail in Q3 is quite unbelieveable. Skeletons lie on the ground, and statues of past ID heroes stand in the battlefield. You won't find those in UT. Another thing concering graphics, Q3 includes 30 player models, with the ability to add more characters and mods (creating variations in the game from level design to a whole new game), while UT has only 4 models and only small modification abilities.
In gameplay, UT offers the smooth tech like gameplay, where the gamer feels like he or she is just pushing buttons to make things splatter on the screen. While this may be appealing to some gamers, you must remember that the first person shooter genre's perpose is to shoot and kill people, as the name suggest. The tech style of UT doesn't give you this feeling at all. Q3, on the other hand, is furious and fast, immersing you into the dark atmosphere, and really gives you the feeling of a shooter.
In the end, there are so many things that Q3 does as good or better than UT, but that doesn't mean that UT is a bad game, just not for the style that some gamers are looking for. Thanks for reading this!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Actual Review of the Game December 10, 1999
Well... It's fun as hell, really.
The weapon balance is very good and gameplay is fast and furious. It's a lot more like Q1 than Q2, really. Q2 was a very slow game and allowed for people to dominate without ever being killed by carrying a ton of armor. It's not like that in Q3.
The single player mode is simply amazing. The way the bots move is very convincing -- you can easily forget that you aren't playing other people. Their taunts are pretty funny, too, and give them personalities. I think that they did a great job with the difficulty levels, because the easy bots don't just stand still and the hard bots don't just rail you out of the air.
The levels look really good, but a lot of them aren't all that much fun. The outside, bounce pad levels are a riot! Some of the new power ups are great fun and remove the boredom and cheesiness of the Quad. They have Haste, Regen, Invul, Invis and Flight (I may have left one out). The teleporter adds a lot to the game, too: teleporting yourself to safety after someone knocks you off the level really frustrates the other guy!
Things I don't like. As I said, some of the levels are kind of boring. They look like Rocket Arena levels, but you still have to scrounge for weapons. The grenade launcher (my favorite in Q1 & Q2) is a bit off. The delay is too long on it, so it isn't nearly as useful. Basically, shooting behind yourself when you're being followed doesn't work.
Minor nuisances. They seem to have taken out the option to save your config, unless I'm just an idiot, and the default for multiplayer games is not rotate maps.
