I love Quake 3 Areana! It doesn't take a whole lot of computing power, and it's a great FPS to play online or with friends. F4a is a mod that allows you to play freeze-tag on Quake III Arena. That is my favorite way to play quake.
Get Quake, join a f4a server, and join the sensation.
I got to know Quake III at university. I knew it before, but never really played it.
Since our school is in a network, we managed to disable their firewall, and have been playing Quake ever since then, when we were bored and stuff. And indeed, it's a fun game. Like almost every computer can run it, and it's a real good laugh to play it together with some friends!
Quake is amazing. A lot of kids at my school have the demo on their servers and we would play whenever we have a chance. It is so much more entertaining to play with friends then against bots. Personally I'm quite fond of the map with the giant mouth. 1v1 duels are perfect there.
Weapons wise I will have to go for the following
rockets - power
rail gun - speed
gauntlet - just for the humiliation
lightning gun - the sweet looking shots
The requires a high standard of your hardware, i can't afford it.
However, I did play it in my friends computer, and it's amazing!
Quake 3 Arena was an awesome game. But... Team Arena is out (well worht getting btw), and Quake 4 is out (best game ever). Get quake 4. THere are no bots, but thats okay. Besides, the weapons are much better in Quake 4! They brought the nailgun back, and the machinegun can now actually be used to kill people!
You reminded me old times when I played Q2A. It is similar game to Unreal Tournament, and when I played thourgh internet, I felt unstoppable, cuz we with friend allways were winners on 2vs2.
Ahh Quake III. I loved that game! In many ways it still rivals the likes of UT2K4. Personally I prefer the weapons to the almost entirely energy based arsenal of Unreal.
Quake Wars is looking to be very good.
quake III i find this game very scary. i was playing this game at around 11pm till the midnight with almost full volume, it gave me quite many frights. got scared, but i liked the game play. if i had to rate this game i would give around 3.5/5...only thats enough
I hate that game!!! I gave it to my brother and he hate it too! that game sucks!!!
Quake games are always fun. I never really got into Quake 3, but my girlfriend just bought Quake 4 for me, and I have really been enjoying that. I haven't gotten to try it out online yet, but I am sure it will be similar. Perhaps I will have to purchase Quake 3 and get my friends to play it with me...
