Welcome to the Arena, where high-ranking warriors are transformed into spineless mush. Abandoning every ounce of common sense and any trace of doubt, you lunge onto a stage of harrowing landscapes and veiled abysses. Your new environment rejects you with lava pits and atmospheric hazards as legions of foes surround you, testing the gut reaction that brought you here in the first place. Your new mantra: Fight or be finished.

I've been retro gaming lately and finally got into q3 and wow I'm so rusty on this game I can't even beat the bots on hardcore - nightmare mode LoL! Along UT and HL this old games are just timeless.

My most favorite Quake 3 Arena analogy that I found somewhere in the internet; "It's just like a finely-tuned, high-performance, race car. It's fast, it feels great, and people who likes looking under the hood would find the inside is just as interesting. Yes, it basically does only one thing, unlike other types of land vehicles(like, the SUV). But you can't deny, it does that one thing, so, very, great."

Never mind, I just found out it's actually called Pain Keep Arena, and that Painkiller was actually the name of a bot in the first map of its solo ladder mode.

I agree that this is one of the best FPS I've ever played.. though Duke3d was super fun in MP... What I'm finding is that games that are supposed to be simple (Just kill the other guys) has become complicated, and in that process a lot of the fun of the game has been lost...
I've been playing some UT2k4 and I still go back to Q3 when I really want to have fun without endless frustration

There are a lot of mods for this game I don't understand why no one has thought of a Halo or Assassins Creed mod for this game

No second triggers
Less tactical (i.e. no biorifle or shock combos - though the Prox Launcher in Team Arena comes very close to a UT3 Bio Rifle)
and most importantly imo for the sake of flow that no one ever mentions

getting shot doesn't mean a critical loss of velocity, instead, velocity is ADDED. Someone can rail you off course.

This was my first fps game on PC, most of the fps games I played before it were console based which were the awesome 007 games and they happened to use the ID Tech 3 engine also ironically. :P

Quake 3, is without a doubt, one of my favourite games. This game is amazing. I can play it offline for hours and hours without getting bored. The bots are great, and quite challenging on higher difficulty settings. The weapons are well designed but the machinegun was really crappy. Making stuff for this game is really easy and makes the game even better. There isn't really a storyline to the singleplayer campaign. But this isn't much of an annoyence. I found the maps to be very fun, especially…
