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

    The graphics are a match for anything else on the market, and the game doesn't need a supercomputer to run it.
  2. A first person shooter loaded with astounding maps, diverse game styles, great weapons, and the best bots in the business.
  3. 96
    A title that is as close to flawless as I've ever seen, both in its ability to entertain and in its finely honed technology and presentation.
  4. Everything about Unreal Tournament is spectacular and in your face.
  5. A new generation, looking a lot prettier, playing a lot smoother, and sounding a lot better, but with very little innovation.

    But what separates UT from Quake 3 is its glossy presentation...Audio in UT is also superb.
  7. Without better DM map design, more polished graphics and artwork and maybe more panache in the weapons design department, we don't feel that Unreal Tournament is quite ready to earn our seal of approval as the uber-shooter to carry gaming into the next millennium.

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
