Previously called the "QUAKE 3 Engine" and one of the most successful licensed engines in history, id Tech 3 was the engine used to create games such as Quake II Arena, Return to Castle Wolfenstein and Soldier of Fortune II: Double Helix. id Tech 3 introduced shaders, curved surfaces, 32-bit color, special effects, bleeding-edge networking and super-smooth speedy hardware rendering.

There was also console only games which used ID Tech 3 such as James Bond games like Everything or Nothing and Agent Under Fire, and I think maybe also From Russia With Love since it seemed very similar to EON.

How I wish they were ported to PC to keep them alive, could probably get the map editors to work with them too, custom Co-Op maps for EON would be awesome since that game already has a Co-Op mode.

Yes, as long as you have QUAKE 3, Quake II Arena, Return to Castle Wolfenstein and Soldier of Fortune II: Double Helix.
I'm not sure if they have released the source code without having to buy one of those games. I'm not sure.

GladiatorBot for Quake2's a pretty accurate approximation considering they're directly related
