Quake 3 Arena

Saturday, January 01, 2000 by TheDoc || [0 Comments]

Overall: 4
Graphics: 5
Interface: 4
Multiplayer: 4
The game play is pretty much the only thing I have to complain about here. While I'm not a big quake 2 player like the rest of XPD8, I find that I'm playing more quake now that I have DSL ... But I jumped into a game of Q3 and found myself dying way too easy... It was like, jump into the game, and run like hell before someone just wipes you out... I found that it's alot easier to die in the game than before. But that's the only real problem I have with the game, other than that, I love it... I'm sure I'll play alot more Q3 than Q2 now.

Graphics/Display:

Graphics are nice. They've added more detail to the games, esp. since it's made for internet play. You'd think that they would have to go backwards in how much they can display to get that many players playing at once, while still maintaining speed and playability, but they've seemed to accomplish it while increasing the amount of eye candy.

Interface/Controls:

Mostly like normal Q2, but it's no harder. Pretty straight forward and easy to do.

Multiplayer (if any):

x

Summary:

While I'm not much of a Q2 fan, I think that I'll be playing more Q3 than before. It gives me something more than CTF (I was always more of a DM person myself) ... I think they did a good job.
