This pack includes:
Quake III: Arena
Quake III: Team Arena
Quake III: Arena
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.
Quake III: Team Arena
Never before have the forces aligned. United by name and by cause, The Fallen, Pagans, Crusaders, Intruders, and Stroggs must channel their power into an allied operation where teamwork is the only method of mass destruction. Four distinct games test each troop's synthesis and strength to exacting degrees. Cooperation is the only course of action, and war, the only alternative. Soldiers once alone in their struggle, now face the Arena as one.

Quake 3 was one of the first of those games, that didn't have a singleplayer campaign, or at least not really. Without internet connection all you have are a bunch of bots, that are actually fun to fight against, yet they aren't anything like facing off against a real human. A bot would never cheat like a human. When a friend of mine reached supersonic speed using bunny hopping, i learned the true messege of the matrix movies.... Anyway, this pack contains team arena, and the base game. Both are fun for months, yet if you want to enjoy the full extent of this game, you need to use the mods. The ammount of user created content is staggering. There are medieval mods, fantasy mods, and even real life mods, a'la counter strike. Well, not Actually counter strike, but close enough. Also, the user created skins are just fun. If you can think of it, chances are, someone already made it. The game downloads costum content automaticly, so you don't need to worry about it, if your hdd can handle it.
I used to play with this game 8 hours a day. Too bad i didn't get any good in it, but well.... Anyway, quake 3 is an awesome game, that has so many mods, that you can practically make it a rather different experience altogether. My favorite was always the superhero mod, where you could combine powers, and i could basically make a Spider-man, who used rocket launchers. Ah, good times... Team arena doesn't add much to the core gameplay, and i my opinion, rather useless, but with this pack it's practically free so whatever...
This game is just one of the greatest online arena shooter. With all its simplicity, quake 3 shook the world with its gorgeous 3D graphics and high speed gameplay that makes it so perfect. You start in the map, with only your machine gun and your gauntlet. From there you try to get a better weapon than your online opponents and try to gain as many points as possible by fragging them and not get fragged. This is 90% of the gameplay. It may sound empty at first but it is the gameplay, player control and level design that bring everything together where you will elaborate strategies to gain advantage and have easy access to the powerups spread in the map. The single player is more empty in comparison. You simply play a sequence of online maps against bots AI and from time to time, you'll do a duel against one stonger AI. If you play long enough, you will quickly see that every bot do play a bit differently. Some will favor a specific gun where some other will just use what they have in their hands, the same applies to movement skills and basic accuracy. In the end, it does the job right to introduce you for the multiplayer! It is still a game played in LAN games, and this is exactly where it was aiming at. Go play it.
This was one of the first FPS games I played, I immediately fell in love with the dynamic gameplay it has to offer. The skill ceiling of this game is so high(compared to other FPS games), you literally can't be the best, there's always room for improvement. There's no "lucky shots" which exist in most FPS games. If you get killed it's because there's someone better out there, not someone who won the RNG lottery. The graphics are outstanding for a game so old. I never experienced any FPS drops playing that on my old PC, which is now around 15 years old. The game wasn't meant to be played in single player, because it's just bots. Come on, who wants to play with bots? Go join a DM server and shoot that rocket launcher.
Man, I played this game since 2002 and didn't find a better game than that. I was 12 years old when I first launched this game. I spent about a year in understanding console commands and syntax. Then I created my first config file for this game. It's been a fun time experimenting with this config. I edited this file almost everyday cause I was young and had a passion and a bunch of time. It helped me a lot in my current job, cause in unix-like operating systems (like linux) most of the configs are working on the same principle. So, it not just a good game, it's a game that helped me to find the way in my life. Thanks all in id Software for this game. Cheers
