  1. There is no excuse for a game to perform so badly at the lowest settings, especially on a system which meets the recommended system requirements. Unless you have all the latest hardware, don’t bother with UT2K3 for a while.
  2. The worst crime ever committed against PC gamers was releasing the sequel to UT without an Assault mode.

    With the exception of the extremely, though not awe-inspiringly fun bombing run mode, UT2003 could essentially be Quake 1996 with one hell of an Oprah Winfrey style makeover.
  4. With bigger guns and even bigger levels, Unreal Tournament 2003 seems to say: size does matter.

    It's just been so toned down from the original that on one hand while I applaud the balancing of the weapons, on the other I miss the raw intensity that permeated "Unreal Tournament."

    Lack of some good game modes and in the need of more better maps is something I would want until UT2004 became the answer to this.
