Quake 3 Arena ID Software / Activision 1999

Network and Internet Quakes reach level 9 on the Richter scale. Graphics are magnificent in rendering the levels, as well as the opponents rich in detail incomparable to any engine so far released. The intelligence of the Bots is unmatched. even to the nice ones in UT. The levels are set in the science fiction area and the Gothic style from the first game (and to me the latter is more fun). Also all are of a good size in order to have places for tactics but not to be too large and confusing. The music belongs among the best also, so that action scenes are provided with an extra adrenalin rush. Implementing kinetic bounce and acceleration pads quicken the overall pace but also detract from realism. ID software proved once again that they are, despite quite substantial efforts from the competition, the number 1 in the action game field and can still come up and better their previous efforts with new ideas. Quake 3 provided fans with much pleasure for several years before it was finally surpassed but this game and UT were the powerhouses of the millenium.
