Summary: I was originally going to get the Dreamcast version of Quake III Arena because of its keyboard and mouse support, but I'm glad I got this instead. The new "campaign" mode is little more than isolated matches with rudimentary stat-building, but the gameplay is still great. The minor autoaim (similar to that seen in Serious Sam) solved the biggest problem I had with the PC version: the difficulty of hitting targets despite having the precision of a mouse.
Summary: I didn't find the controlls to be clumsy. I happen to like movement/straife on the left and look on the right analog. Many people I know however, don't. Other than that, the game is an excellent challenge when put on the easiest level. Make sure you have your memory card, which they don't seem to be able to stock anywhere in Louisville, Kentucky. I love the graphics, moveability, weapons, and enemies.
It's a first person shooter, what did you expected?

Summary: 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.
Summary: 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!
Summary: 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.
Summary: Although Quake in the past has given us a chalenge and a lot of fun Quake 3 drops the standards for all of its pretacesors, Quake 3 had the weapons they had the graphics they even had the charcters but what they didn't have was originality and a storyline Quake has always been a action packed thriller that kept us up late in the night trying to pass its skillful levels but Quake 3 is nothing more than somebody shooting a whole bunch of people for the h*** of it it has no...
Summary: This game is excellent if u like games like doom and timesplitters. I find this game slightly better than timesplitters, but it is very slow. The controls are very easy, but aiming up and down can be a pain if you are in that kind of situation. I guess i gave it four stars because it is the best game of its kind by far,for its slow speed i took one off. I can probably finish 2 eggs and orange juice while it is loading the level.
Summary: quake 3 for PS2 is a very good game but i feel does not match what the other games in the quake series accomplished . GRAPHICS- the graphics were great from wall textures to the star lit sky of space and the water effects were well done i was quite impressed with the lava . the guns looked realistic but none really were anything like the weapons in quake 1 & 2 .
Summary: Quake 3 was definatly one of the greatest FPS on the PC, the PS2 version is no exception. Despite long load times and a slight lack of variety, the game plays like a dream. The graphics are better than any I've seen on the PS2 so far, and the action never skips a beat. I've read the game even runs slightly over 60 frams per second and never below. Buy this one as soon as you see it!
