* ExcusePlot: The game's plot goes like this: SufficientlyAdvancedAliens kidnapped some of the greatest warriors and made them fight each other to death and redeath. You die? [[DeathIsNotPermanent They'll respawn you back]]. The best warrior will then challenge Xaero, the Arenas Eternal's champion. In the PS2 version, you get to fight against the tournament's host directly, though.

* LoadsAndLoadsOfLoading: A pretty painful issue of the PS2 port, in which loadings might span for just as long as two minutes.

** Bullfrog, the developers of Quake III Evolution, sure didn't leave the happy owners of this PS2 port without a tasty treat - [[VideoGame/DungeonKeeper The Reaper and The Mistress]] make guest appearances there!

* CompetitiveBalance: In ''Team Arena'', you start as JackOfAllStats, as in any FPS, but in the maps with the Runes, depending on the rune you've taken, you may become:
** FragileSpeedster: Scout. (Negates your armor, and you're unable to pick up armor, but makes you faster)
** MightyGlacier or LightningBruiser: Guard. (You receive the max health and armor, and the health will regenerate to the maximum)
** GlassCannon: Doubler. (Increases your firerate and weapon damage)
** SpoonyBard: Ammo Regen. (Your ammunition regenerates... rather slowly)

This game was designed almost exclusively with multiplayer mode in mind. Id had recognised the fact that the deathmatches were easily the most popular thing about ''Quake'' so far, and created this entry as a virtual arena for competitive online matches. The single-player mode contained only a very basic story, and was based around a series of tiers, with the player making its way to the final match against the Champion.
