Quake 3 Arena is all about deathmatch and the multiplayer game is where the heart
of Quake 3 Arena resides. There's no traditional single player game, virtually no
story line, no worlds to save or girls to rescue.What the game does have is the most
intense action ever to cross any first-person shooter, or any game for that matter,
coupled with a whole lot of killing.
Deathmatches, or multiplayer games where you go up against a small number of equally
equipped (but not necessarily equally skilled) opponents, are what made the first
two Quake games such a success. In fact, it's still easy to find a multiplayer Quake
1 game on the internet. But unlike Quake 1 and 2, where the multiplayer game seemingly
played second fiddle to the long drawn out single player game, Quake 3 Arena's multiplayer-focus
makes the game incredible refined.
Quake 3 Arena's levels have all been painstakingly crafted for the best multiplayer
experience. Most levels are relatively small, ensuring a constant and high amount
of action, while various platforms, spring boards, alcoves, and wide open areas keep
you on your toes and on the look out for where the next threat is coming from.
Quake 3 Arena is a monster of a game. IT admins will fear the added bandwidth the
game will put on their servers, CEO's will cringe at the lost productivity of their
employees, and university students' grades are bound to plummet, all in the name
of some fun. Strap yourself into Quake 3 Arena and be prepared to waste countless
hours. What are you waiting for?
