In-depth Review: Quake Arena Arcade - Electronic Theatre

Quake Arena Arcade is a reproduction of that original PC game (later ported to Dreamcast as a sign of SEGA’s early investment in online gaming infrastructure) bought into the modern age of high-definition gaming. The single-player mode, much like that of Epic Games’ Unreal Tournament III, merely acts as a training ground for the online play. With five grades of difficulty and a wealth of varying rule sets, many younger gamers may find it disappointing that there is little in the way of variety in the single-player campaign, including when taking into account that of the ‘boss fights’. Of course, anyone who played Quake III: Arena back in 1999 would expect no different, and is unlikely to be disappointed by the pace of the blasting action available when like-minded friends are absent.

I loved quake 3 area, I think this arcade version was supposed to be released 2 years ago.
I tried the demo of this, and its sooo similar to the original, I tried multiplayer, set my sensitivity to high, and killed the only other person in the game.
He got so angry he kicked me from the game lol..
I think its great this has finally made it to arcade, but I think its too late. The game is obviously dated, giving the host of the game the ability to kick anyone is annoying.
For anyone who loved the original its a great buy, but Im not sure if its worth it these days.
Hopefully the make an actual new version of quake, which is similar to arena in terms of multiplayer.
