    Surprise, surprise —UT 2004 looks absolutely fantastic. From the sprawling battlefields to the tiny blades of alien grass, there’s not one visual detail that looks less than stunning.
  2. And therein lies the game's beauty—it's expertly balanced. For every Goliath tank driver, there's a Manta master or Raptor pilot who can rip you a new one.
  3. Most impressive of all is the obvious care and planning put into the maps, which are large without being cavernous, and intricate without being overly confusing (though I’ve got to say that it’s a good thing that they’ve included vehicles, because some maps would involve a lot of long walks if you couldn’t steal a vehicle somewhere).
  4. Onslaught alone makes this game a must by for all the fans out there. If you are an online gamer and looking for the very best death match game out there today, there is no better, more polished game out there.
  5. If you're looking for perhaps the best multiplayer experience ever created in the history of the industry, this is definitely the game for you.

    Unreal Tournament 2004 achieves that near impossible task in video gaming: It appeals to every online shooter fan without making compromises in quality.

    You'll be hard-pressed to find a white-knuckle, multiplayer-focused FPS more intense than UT2004 any time this year. [June 2004, p.87]

    Brilliant addition to the series. The quake engined games really need to look hard at the multiplayer interface (game browser, mutators, etc) Brilliant addition to the series.

    I bought this game on its release date about 10yrs ago now and I still play the odd deathmatch or onslaught, reason being this game is so muchI bought this game on its release date about 10yrs ago now and I still play the odd deathmatch or onslaught, reason being this game is so much fun! I remember the early days of multiplayer they were so intense I went from onlsaught to CTF then VCTF to deathmatch and there's more game modes than just these. All those mods and maps available for free, Im a veteran of this game and I still see a new map or mod on servers.
    Best FPS ever!

    I hate it, the action is nice. However most players hack and alot of those people can't type or just have no life. Single player is I hate it, the action is nice. However most players hack and alot of those people can't type or just have no life. Single player is nice, but it keeps crashing on a next-gen machine. Which can handle Crysis like a charm. Expand
