Ook pc.ign heeft een review gemaakt van Quake 3. Klein stukje uit de review over de systeemeisen:Of course, all of this graphical detail requires a fast machine to run smoothly. Simply put, Quake III: Arena is a resource hog, and you're inevitably going to experience slowdown when there are a lot of challengers fighting in the same area. There's just so much to animate at once that there's no way to avoid dropped frames at some points during the game. Thank goodness you can easily adjust the graphic acuity of the game in the options menu to suit your system. Regardless of the minimum requirements of a P200 MMX, I wouldn't recommend Quake III: Arena to anyone with less than a 300MHz machine with 128MB of RAM.
