I love finally see OpenArena on Desura!

It's a great game, maybe the best shooter Q3 based.

Great job devs :)

great fast fps, a good 2nd version of quake 3 arena

works good greate game

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.

I do love it, nice gameplay, quite lovely!

awesome with a good variety of guns

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").

Though other FLOSS FPS like Xonotic seem more polished and complete, this game is really fun.
Furthermore it is possible to run a vast of Q3A-Mods, which in my opinion makes OpenArena one of the best games to start with, if you are looking for a free arena shooter.
