Zen And the Art of Fragging With Quake

Aggregate..., Ciao
23 June 2002
  • Excerpt: I never really enjoyed first person shooters. Racing and fighting games are more my forte, but considering I wanted moreaction from the Dreamcast and that the graphics look downright incredible, I decided to shell out some bucks and take a chance.
  • Pros: Many maps and characters, excellent visuals, intense mulitplayer action
  • Cons: can't search for people online

  • Excerpt: As far as First Person Shooter (FPS) go I'm a bit of a novice (as I've explained before), and as such an area that I'm not keen to jump into. I've got Quake 2 on my PC. "Is Quake, is good" is the cry from many FPS fans, so it was on a spending splurge that I bought four games for my beloved DC and...
  • Pros: Graphics, fast, challenging, very solid game
  • Cons: A keyboard and mouse are pretty much neccessary

Quake III arena

Xanderd, Ciao
26 January 2002
  • Excerpt: Quake II arena is a very good game. Although my major glitch with it is that I found it very difficult to pick up the controls. So i switched the controls so the analogue stick 'moves' and two of the other buttons let you look up and down.
  • Pros: Excellent multiplayer modes
  • Cons: Difficult controls, expensive online gaming, same old genre?

  • Excerpt: If you’re a PC owner then it’s highly unlikely that you have never heard of the likes of Unreal, Half Life or Doom. Apart from these there is also the Quake series from ID software.
  • Pros: Great gameplay for a console version
  • Cons: Not as good as the PC equivalent

Can my DC really run Quake 3 this well

BonzoBana..., Ciao
1 March 2001
  • Excerpt: I've just been reading how Unreal on the ps2 looks a little rough and has severe slowdown on splitscreen mode. Quake 3 as far as I can tell has no slowdown and split screen multiplayer works really well.
  • Pros: A totally brilliant port that truly does the game and dc justice .
  • Cons: hard with a pad and controller settings not saved .

  • Excerpt: Everyone has said how great the online version of Quake 3 arena is, with very little slowdown and pretty good connection times, but the single player game has been slated from day one...why?
  • Pros: Playability, internet option, graphics
  • Cons: Difficult, hard to get into

QUAKE 3 THE EASIEST ONLINE GAMING EXPERIENCE

callmeado..., Ciao
6 February 2001
  • Excerpt: I'd like to concentrate on the online gaming aspect of Quake 3 Arena. Basically this ported PC first person shooter is the first major online gaming release for the console market. Q3 represents the easiest online playing experience yet available in the UK.
  • Pros: Peerless online gaming ease
  • Cons: Watch those phone bills !

  • Excerpt: Even if you don't know anything about games, as soon as you start playing this you know it is made for a PC. The controller is pretty bad on this game, i haven't tried it but i know that a keyboard and mouse would work better.
  • Pros: Online play, Split screen
  • Cons: Rare slowdown

Spectaular

25 January 2001
  • Excerpt: Spectacular! I had to begin with a adjective because its that... GOOD. I've played a lot of first person shooters and this is a great one. Visulize the first time you played golden-eye in four player mode and multiply it by 3 and 2/3rds.
  • Pros: Smooth, great fun
  • Cons: Sound could be inproved but hey who cares

Too limited

Parody, Ciao
22 January 2001
  • Excerpt: Quake 3 Arena, as everybody probably knows, was originally created for the PC. And I am afraid to say, that it should have stayed like that. Even though ID did a brilliant conversion of the game to the Dreamcast, and it's compatibility with the DC Mouse and Keyboard is a good idea.
  • Pros: Enjoyable, lasts a while with the multiplayer .  Low lag in online play .
  • Cons: A limit of 4 PEOPLE !  Hard to play with controller .
