On the one hand, fame, fortune, glory; on the other hand, death. Prove your skill in the arenas of the future, leading your team of computer-controlled "bots" to victory in the Grand Tournament, or compete with the best of the best via LAN or the Internet in seat-of-your-pants battles. While Unreal Tournament offers the finest in classic "Deathmatch" play, right out of the box you can compete in Team Deathmatch or Capture the Flag. Control strategic points on the map to rack up your score in Domination, or test your skills in Assault, as one team defends its base from the other. Each game type comes with its own special maps and rules, for never-ending variety and challenge. Add gameplay mutators such as Jump Match or InstaGib, and Unreal Tournament will keep your wits honed to a razor edge. [Infogrames] Expand

  1. Every weapon that was in "Unreal" has been given a total facelift for Unreal Tournament. Everything has been totally redrawn and textured - the overall look of the weapons is quite impressive.
  2. 100
    The graphics are a match for anything else on the market, and the game doesn't need a supercomputer to run it.
  3. Everything in the game is utter perfection. Whether you're in it for the single player quest or the online extravaganza Unreal Tournament doesn't have what you need -- IT IS what you need.
  4. Everything about Unreal Tournament is spectacular and in your face.
  5. The combination of several dozen professionally designed levels, competitive bots, and entertaining game modes will be hard for DM enthusiasts to resist.
  6. A new generation, looking a lot prettier, playing a lot smoother, and sounding a lot better, but with very little innovation.
  7. If you play only one FPS this year, it will probably be "Quake 3," but if you play two FPS games this year, give Unreal Tournament a try.

    Best fps I have ever played. Its so much fun I'm still playing it. Its still alive and this is 2009. That's how good this game is. Best fps I have ever played. Its so much fun I'm still playing it. Its still alive and this is 2009. That's how good this game is. While its way more alive in Europe and South America than North America its still a flourishing game, depending on the mod. Team deathmatch, ctf, 125 speed ctf, and ig. This game is definitely still going. Expand

    Unreal Tournament is the bast FPS of all time! Great graphics,perfect gameplay and good balance make this the best FPS of all time... Too badUnreal Tournament is the bast FPS of all time! Great graphics,perfect gameplay and good balance make this the best FPS of all time... Too bad that when someone mentions first person shooter first game that comes to mind is call of duty,but they are all the same! I don't know why people like them so much...I just home that when Unreal Engine 4 comes out Epic Games will release Unreal Tournament 4 rather then Gears of War 4.... Expand
