    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]

    I've just played the demo and this game is simply amazing. The new modes, Onslaught and Assault, are perfectly balanced and VERY fun. I've just played the demo and this game is simply amazing. The new modes, Onslaught and Assault, are perfectly balanced and VERY fun. The new levels are excellent, the graphics are beautiful, and it runs really well on my medium quality pc(Athlon XP 2600+ 2.0 GhZ 512 MB RAM GeForceFX5200 128 MB) on 1024x768 res. I can't wait to get the full version of this game, and from what I've read in PCGamer it will have even cooler levels then what I've seen, including an assault mission where you pilot a spaceship!

This is no doubt a legendary shooter that everybody ever interested in multiplayer FPS should play. This is one of those titles that have carved their names on the very core of video gaming.

    Like your typical shooter. Mindless, dumb shooter that is so simple you can't even focus on it while playing because it's just so boring.
