GamesRadar: Quake Live Preview

As a concept, Quake Live is fairly simple to describe: Quake III Arena, for free, in a web browser. As a phenomenon, it goes much deeper. Quake Live is a step into new, experimental territory.

Nine years on, a significant number of gamers still play the increasingly modded Quake III, suggesting there's no reason why it shouldn't pick up a new following. Much of the modding has been incorporated into the Live version, along with aesthetic improvements. "The designers have given it a spruce up," says John Carmack. "They've gone through and touched up every map in there, touched up the model skins, so it's a little bit more polished, but it's still the same game. Just with the nine years of aggregate finessing that the community has decided was the better way of doing things." (PC, Quake Live)
