Product Description

Review

In the usual tradition of this genre, Quake 3: Revolution transports the player into an ultraviolent world where they have to fight with whatever weapon is available to be that last man standing, or as is the case with this game, hold a white flag the longest.

The Quake games have had a long-standing relationship on the PC, dating back to their predecessor Doom and its sequels, and have been considered by many gamers to include some of the best first-person shooters on that platform. The PlayStation2's crack at the whip is executed elegantly, as the hardware hardly breaks a sweat.

The player is placed in a beautifully detailed arena with a bunch of other nasty killers in a variety of do-or-die scenarios. In one, the player must survive all of the other assailants; in another, he must find the flag and keep hold of it for one minute. It sounds simple, though it's anything but.

With stunning graphics, amazing speed, and stomach-churning sounds, this game looks good and plays well, but it lacks the one element that makes the PC and Dreamcast versions of the game so good: namely, the online play. Having said that, it compensates with the multiplayer option--up to four people can play on the same console in four-way split-screen action. Playing this way against real opponents offers the greatest fun, and the graphics hardly suffer at all. --Robert Hyde -- Amazon.co.uk

4.0 out of 5 stars It's a first person shooter, what did you expected? April 12, 2002
Quake has been known as being one of the best in the relm of first person shooters. For the most part I agree. It holds your attention, provides hours of decent gameplay, and keeps you coming back for more. However like many first person shooters of it's time it followed the typical sci-fi feel. With games like Half Life,Aliens vs Predator, Unreal it just seems to hit on the nail that it is a sci-fi game. Thus we get some easily recognizable feel.
THis game has a story (very shallow but it's a first person shooter). You play one of four cahrtacters who goes through the realm of combat, starting from slave and ending in overlord. TO win the levels are multiplayer style events. Kill most creatures, Capture the flag, and so on. You get the basic idea. YOu are graded on performance and get your stats increased accordingly. SO if play more defense, you defense will grow faster but offense will not, and vice-versa.
Overall it is really meant for multiple players. Otherwise your just not having as much fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars i need more... July 25, 2002
By A Customer
If you've played all the Quake you can get your hands on, including the mission packs, this is the only place left really. I've done half life, unreal and red faction in an attempt to dim my quake urges but nothing worked except Quake 3! All I can say is I NEED MORE QUAKE!

5.0 out of 5 stars Quake 3: Revolution March 31, 2001
By A Customer
I think this game is great. It has great graphics, the gameplay is faster than Timesplitters, and their are more arenas around 30. The game also contains 12 high powered waepons and well over 30 characters to choose from. It has single player and team mmodes. The advance control setting is the easiest to learn you can pick it up in less than 10 minutes. This is a great game if you have a multitap and want to shoot it out with three friends on the weekend, the entire game including the single player mode is like a big multiplayer mode they set you in an area and kill as many people you can or capture the flag there is no real mission except raise your players attributes. The only thing that take away from the game are the EXTREMELY long load times ,but it is worth it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fraggin' fun, if mistitled. April 8, 2001
This game doesn't get five stars because of the LONG load times. Hardcore gamers won't find it revolutionary at all. But casual gamers(maybe those new to first person shooters) in search of gun toting mayhem need to check this out fast. The game graphics are the best I've ever seen in a first person shooter. I found the controls to be intuitive and within a couple of minutes was dooming the arenas like I was born there. Judging Quake 3 by comparing it to TimeSplitters is apples to oranges. They are both excellent and very different. Quake 3 has some of the darkest, evil, and plain perverse atmospheric settings for dishing out the pain to your computer bots or friends. At times you'll wish you could stop the clock (events are timed) and just wander the corridors of this virtual nightmare. I'm having so much learning my way around the Vadrigar's arenas. Trust me, its like when you first popped in Doom. Give it a rental at least.

2.0 out of 5 stars A major disappoinmet April 1, 2001
Being a huge fan of FPS games, Quake III:Revolution was one of the reasons behind my decision to bite the bullet and buy the PS2. Prior to yesterday, I had been thoroughly enjoying both Timesplitters and Unreal:Tournament, but figured that they'd by resigned to the shelf once Quake III was released. Boy, was I wrong.
The problems with Q:III are numerous. A big problem is the graphics which, despite being fast, become very muddy when distances increase marginally (even as viewed thru a component-video connection). It is very difficult to spot a deathmatch opponent on the other side of a medium-sized room, even when the character is moving. Part of the problem here might be the use of color: most of the levels appear to have been washed with a rust-colored haze. In addition, the lighing effects are inconsistant, making it difficult to find a dark corner to lurk in. The weapon graphics are weak, meaning that the firing animations are rough and lacking in detail. The weapons produce no incidental damage marks on the walls--no bullet holes, no burn marks. The game also annoys you by automatically switching to whatever weapon you've just picked up, even if it is lower-powered. The weapons themselves are generally an uninspired collection of the same-old same-old, with a few new additions that add little to the strategy of the game.
Becuase the game moves so fast (easily twice the speed of Unreal:Tournament), control is critical. Here again, the game lets you down with control that tends to be as muddy as the graphics. There are only six controller set-ups to choose from, and you cannot map your own configuration as in Timesplitters. There is an adjustment for the analog thumbstick sensitivity, but it is still too difficult to zoom in on an opponent and track them with the railgun.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK but a lttle off June 8, 2001
This game is fun to play when you have some friends over. However it takes five to ten minutes to load and it loads after every screen. The gameplay is fun but there aren't alot of weapons and you run out of ammo pretty quick. The characters look pretty 2D. If your looking for a shootem up game go with Unreal.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rent it first May 25, 2001
By A Customer
I read such glowing reviews of this game that I went out and bought it without giving it a test drive. This has to be without a doubt the most boring game that I have ever played. The graphics are below average and the game speed is so fast that you basically run around hoping to gather two frags before dying and starting over. I normally am a big Activision fan, but I feel like this genre is not really where their game designing strength lies. Many people apparently enjoy this game, but I would think twice before purchasing.
