"Quake III Arena is a real, honest-to-goodness multiplayer game. You can play the single-player test zone against the computer just to hone your skills, but that's not nearly as enjoyable as reaching across the Internet and sharing a grenade with another troubled soul."

"Even in single-player mode I found the game riveting in its gore and violence -- but playing against 8 to 39 other people pumps gallons of adrenalin through your system, making your heart rate leap from normal to frantic...."

"The multiplayer mode comes in several forms: Free For All or DeathMatch (DM), Team DeathMatch (TDM), Capture the Flag (CTF), Tournament (TOU), and One On One (1v1). When you connect to the list of available game servers on the Internet, you will see each game described as being in one of these categories. Here is where the real fun begins, as you match your dexterity and wits against the minds of human opponents."
