Description official description

Quake III: Team Arena is the official add-on to Quake III: Arena.

It adds a lot of multiplayer game types: Harvester, Overload and One Flag, all focused on team play. There is a selection of new power-ups aimed at introducing a class-based structure similar to Team Fortress. Three new weapons are available: a nail gun, a chain gun and a proximity mine launcher. There is also a batch of new levels, and a few graphical and sonic tweaks like the inclusion of Doppler-shift effects when rockets streak past your head. And finally there is a set of one-use items like Kamikaze (kills you in a colossal explosion, taking out anyone unfortunate to be around) and Invulnerability, which freezes you in mid-air and surrounds you with a near-impenetrable shield.

The Good
The game features multiple new weapons, arenas and game types. The weapons are greatly designed, each with it's own ups and downs. Old favourites are brought back like the nailgun. The new gametypes are creative and fun, and will keep team players on for a while. The game, right at the start, boasts a new interface, with complete access to Quake 3 Arena original. New character models look great, and the new HUD is excellent. Even better is the new contact system(talking). It is now easier than ever.

New game types were created and designed awesomly, along with the many new maps. My favourite type is One Flag CTF. Single player is also very fun, and is not just a boring, run on game like Unreal Tournament.

The Bad
Since the game is based mainly on team play, not much extra maps for good old DM and 1v1. Still, good add on nevertheless.

The Bottom Line
In summary, Team Arena contains everything an add on should have, and has already sold millions of copies. If your into good teamplay, stop wasting your time with the Unreal games, get Quake 3 Arena & Team Arena to make your DM,TDM,1v1,CTF,OFCTF and more types the best they can be. I rate Q3TA 9/10

One of the clans in Quake III: Team Arena, The Strogg, is also an alien race in the Quake universe; they are the main enemy in Quake II and Quake 4. The names of three members of the clan, Enforcer, Icarus and Paracyte are also the names of three enemies in Quake II (the last one is called Parasite there).
