Andrew Cretella writes: "It may seem strange to criticize the game for its single-player considering Quake III built its entire legacy on multiplayer, but it was this version’s one and only chance to prevent itself from being redundant. Instead, redundant is exactly what Quake Arena Arcade is. All it has left to offer that its PC counterparts do not are the 12 Xbox360-exclusive levels, a mostly quantitative concern that does not make up for its qualitative deficiency. In fact, while Quake Live does not have those particular maps, even non-subscription players have access to over 50 arenas, so technically it wins quantitatively as well. Quake Arena Arcade is not a bad game; it’s just an extremely misguided release considering Quake Live is free and superior. It’s not like system requirements should be an issue anymore either."
