Quake Arena Arcade - пример бездумного порта от людей, которые не понимают игру. Ужасное управление, невозможность подогнать графику и интерфейс под себя, чехарда с пользовательскими серверами - «такой хоккей нам не нужен»! В смысле, Quake.
Playing Quake on a console might seem like blasphemy, but this modern Xbox port of the 11 year old Quake III Arena plays much better than you'd expect. In a time where military shooters dominate the online space, playing some oldschool deathmatch is incredibly refreshing. Quake has aged well, and this version offers plenty of content and entertainment without having to rely on nostalgia.
Quake Arena Arcade is filled with a gaming walk down memory lane but more on the bloody gibbs side.

We enjoy QAA, but next to golden oldies(Doom, Duke)and modern epics(Halo, Call of Duty), it's less of a legend. [March 2011, p.81]
Despite the number of maps on offer, 1200 Microsoft Points (£10.20 / €14.40) is too high a price for what has become, sadly, a niche title.
Quake Arcade Arena is fun and fast, just like fans will want, but I'm not sure they got the message about its release.
