  • Conclusion: Quake Arena Arcade is Quake III: Arena again, except this time around there is no-one to play against. If you've already played Quake to death, there is no need to pick this edition up, even for the exclusive maps. The lack of players online is a clear sign that Quake fans would really like something new for a change.

Quake Arena Arcade Review

PlayDevil
17 February 2011
  • Summary: " Quake Arena Arcade " still holds up as a game. With a bit of spit and polish, it’s a decent looking game in widescreen and in high resolutions, but without the team arena expansion, and with a 1200 point price tag, there is no reason to recommend this game. The online is laggy and pretty dead, whilst Quake Live controls are better and is free.

  • Excerpt: It was on the PC that the First Person Shooter (FPS) genre was truly born. Gamers in the ’90s were blown away when Doom was first unleashed. Sprinting around 3D labyrinths laying waste to hellspawn burnt id Software’s place into the flesh of gaming history. In 1999, id gave birth to what many regarded as the height of competitive FPS: Quake III Arena . You were invited to the Arena, combating warriors from all over the world.

  • Excerpt: Anyone interested in seeing what multiplayer-centric games used to look like, and more importantly, what they played like before Call Of Duty and Halo , should give Quake Arena Arcade a try. For about $15, gamers get a 16-player online experience spread across 45 maps. Thirty of the maps have been ported from the fan favorite Quake III: Arena , while the remaining 15 have been created from scratch for this game.

  • Conclusion: Final Verdict: Although this isn't as good as the original, it is still a great port and keeps mostly all of the good features that you know and love. Compared to the big FPS franchises like Call of Duty, Battlefield, and Halo, this game is still fun to play and stands the test of time as one of the most innovative FPS games for its time.

  • Excerpt: Can deathmatch be a science? id Software sought to find out back in 1999. Quake III: Arena was the developer’s attempt to turn multiplayer into both a perfect mathematical equation and a competitive sport — and a decade later their experiment’s been nicely repackaged as this playable time capsule. The results are mixed.
  • Pros: + Polished, fast, frantic, pure deathmatch., + Nicely structured single-player campaign.
  • Cons: - Designed-for-keyboard-and-mouse controls are too twitchy with a gamepad; gameplay feels stuck between “classic” and “dated.”, ? Can we get a remake of the first Quake, too?

  • Excerpt: It's quite scary that its been almost a decade since the awesome multiplayer first person shooter Quake 3 Arena was released because of how dramatically it changed this genre. So here we are again and this time Quake Arena Arcade has been remastered for XBox Live that contains the same good old fashioned gameplay with updated graphics for an XBox 360 exclusive.
