Reviews for Quake III Arena in Action for PC-Personal Computer ( PC ) :
Only at one point i can agree with those bizzare reviews some people wrote about Q3A...the high specs.
If ya dont own a high-end PC, just stay away from this game.
Choppy movement or controls?
Just a lie!
I never controlled such perfect simulated physics.
The idea of Q3A is not a singleplay, but crossplattforming all over the i-net!
Q3A is def. the top FPS-game available, unlimited fun in every way!
No need to name Q3A-like games...cause there is none!!!!!
Playing Q3A single, ya encounter 7 Tiers filled with high programmed AI bots.
Kill ´em before they kill you is the only goal ya have to reach. Sounds simply, but its rather not.
Equal to ALL real sports, ya can play just for fun, but then ya miss the real thing!
Movement, weapon-control and teamplay over the i-net never let you think about those unneccessary gimmics other FPS come up with (sneaking, more weaponfunctions...all this rubbish).
Q3A is straight, fast and the highest kick ya can have in a team!
Thats def. the highlight of Q3A...playing with your buddies local or worldwide.
There several gametypes:
-Deathmatch free for all
-Teamdeathmatch 4on4 (standard)
-Capture the flag
There tons of modifications out there, like:
1999, the release date of this godlike game, it burns out my eyes. !wow!...what modeldetail, what textures, awesome overall look!
2 years are gone since the release, but i only can count 5 or 6 games which can mess up with Q3A´s gfx.
It´s the best engine out there at the moment and games build on it just look and run fine! (STV-Elite force, for example).
Soldier of Fortune is the next big thing designed on the Q3A-engine, cause no other engines gives the programmers that kind of realistic physics and gfx-power.
Indoor, outdoor and even terrainmaps can be build, textures and models can be rendered in high resolutions and quality.
Footsteps can be localized exactly, bullets swirl around your head, painsounds give you the information about your enemys health, ambient sounds make the arena felling much more realistic.
Having an A3D-card, ya can enjoy the best enviromental audio ever be done in a FPS!
