Summary: 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.
Summary: This game is the worst in its genre. After the 2nd quake, which was also bad, came something even worse quake 3 arena. After playing the pc, then renting the game for ps2 i realized that both were bad. Terrible controls, you can't win on normal diffuculty since the guys kill you easily, and the arenas are small and are terrible-looking graphics. Don't buy this game, it is a waste of time and money!
Summary: Just like Unreal, Quake is another great computer game that was quickly converted to PS2 in an effort to put it on the shelf for a quick profit. The vendor knows the game will sell because: 1) Quake has an enormous name share in the gaming market, and 2) there haven't been any great PS2 games released lately. I hope Sony and software companies stop taking advantage of the PS2 consumers by releasing medicocore games.
Summary: Quake 3 Revolution is almost flawless but is slightly held back by the long loading times and lack of multiplayer options. If you're worried about the PS2 controls, don't be because they are fine. The game is highly addictive and is certainly worth buying if you're a first-person-shooter fan.
Summary: My wife bought me a new Playstation 2 with Quake 3 as a birthday present. Games over here in Denmark are not cheap to buy, and this one was disappointing in that I'd finished it in a day. I've played a lot of Quake on the PC over the web and this just doesn't much up. Sure the graphics are cool, there's no slow-down and the soundtrack rocks along a la industrial gothlike. If you're about to splash your cash on a game get Gran Turismo 3. Now thats another story entirely.
Summary: When I first play Quake III on Pc it was a big dissapointment, first the CPU as unflawless aim and never misses a shot, and second except for the better graphics it doesn't really offer anything new to the genre.We already have Timesplitters and Unreal Tournament for ps2 and with Red Faction on it's way I don't think Quake will really proclaim it's place at the ps2's top games.
