yup, it's quake alright, and now that it's on the desura system, updating should be a breeze, hopefully mods will start to pop up.

Even though I've always thought that the textures in OpenArena are ugly, some of the models out of proportion and some of the maps are horrible - I still keep coming back, and I actually prefer OpenArena over q3a.

Keep it coming guys - I love this game (no matter how many times it "dies").

Does what it's meant to do more or less. Really, you can't complain, I've never played Quake 3 except for on the Dreamcast back in the day, but compared to Quake Live and other current arena shooters this one is severely offensively biased. It gives it a unique feel. Yeah the graphics are some of the worst we've ever seen and there are a lot of things that feel unfinished, but this charming little frag extravaganza will appeal to fans of hardcore arena shooters just fine, and it'll run on nearly any computer you have lying around in the darkest corners of your attic that nobody's been to since you upgraded your computer in 2001.

Bottom line, not for everybody, but if you're a hardcore FPS fan the learning curve isn't very steep and you can have many thrilling moments playing a great shooter. I've wasted hours in front of the screen playing Open Arena, it isn't Quake Live, but it's fun, and, like I said earlier, charming.

Un juego fantastico, muy ligero, y rapido. Aunque no se lleva la nota maxima porque creo que se deberia mejorar la infraestructura online.

An amazing evolution of a classic! I own the originals, long operational on Linux, and now operational on all systems! Hats off to the devs!

Opem Arena bring back that feeling of playing quake 3 arena hours back but in a stronger and funner way. open arena is for anyone who's a fan of quake like fast paced shooters.

Nice Q3-based shooter, but I just like original Q3 much more, although, in modern days Q3 lacks some features and game modes, found in OA. Although, there's Quake Live, but completely stand-alone game is much better than game dependent from browser.
