  • Summary: From the creators of Unreal comes Unreal Tournament, a competition that tests your reflexes and competitive spirit in deadly arenas. Battle 15 of your friends or customizable bots in over 30 different levels, such as pirate ships, waterfronts, speeding trains, and floating castles. Multiplayer modes include Capture the Flag, Assault, Domination, and new Deathmatch variations. With enhanced weapons--including the Impact hammer, which squashes your opponent to mush, and the Redeemer, a rocket-powered nuke--expect the body count to be high. Expand

  1. UT fares better than "Quake III" in three of the categories: lag, amount of people allowed to play and levels.
  2. The graphics may be a little sharper and more detailed in "Quake III Arena," but UT's added gameplay features and 8-way multiplayer action more than make up for it.
  3. "Quake III Arena" on the Dreamcast may offer more visceral gameplay, but Unreal Tournament is the most complete package yet.
  4. While UT is more user-friendly and fun, "Quake III" is faster, prettier and more raw.
  5. The game looks great. Granted, it's not in hi-res mode like its PS2 counterpart, but DC players get on-line play, so nyah, nyah.
  6. A good choice; just remember, it's not the whole enchilada. I like the difficulty level of the bots within single player as well as the possibility of 8-player network play. And where else can you find a chance to put those damn dirty robots in their rightful place?
  7. I had an extreme amount of fun playing this one... The only issue I have is the sometimes-inconsistent frame rate, especially in split screen multiplayer.

    For computer gaming, it's the best first-person shooter ever. Yes, it's even better than Quake III.

    All I can say is wow! I've played UT on the PC for many years and I was skeptical as to how it would be on the Dreamcast. Graphics: Nothing has been lost in the translation. Textures are nice and smooth, and there is almost no slowdown in the framerate. Control: Suprisingly, the Dreamcast controller works rather well with UT. My only complaint is the secondary fire button, which when pressed, can easily cause you to switch weapons inadvertently. Gameplay: New maps plus the original ones from the PC version. The Dreamcast version reatins the various modes, such as Deathmatch, CTF, Domination, etc. Overall, a fantastic game and a must have for any Dreamcast owner. Expand

    Better looking and better playing than Quake III.
