On a whole the game comes highly recommended by
Gamevisions. Alot has
been made of what is basically a mulitplayer game. It is suitable
for Internet play or solo use. The single player mode is not as
large as Half Life with Unreal being split up into different battles,
but it is after all a different style of first person shooters
and easily outshines Quake3: Arena's attempt at offline multiplaying
gaming. Plus with the competition on the market now for first
person shooters, games now have to be of some class to compete
in the top 10. Unreal Tornament comes very close to getting in
the top 3. Along with the Quake Series, Unreal Tornament has a
large aspect of its game dedicated to the online scene. Unreal
Tornament does come close to knocking of the Quake series' crown
with a wide range of gaming types as explained in the review.
These include Capture The Flag and Assualt. Overall this game
is a marvel to play and look at, boasting true graphical power
and compeling sounds techniques never seen before on a first person
- Sound - Gameplay
- Depth - Multiplayer
The graphics are detailed
and smooth, there are some amazing lighting effects
and some truly outstanding level structures and locations.
Such as deathmatch on a pirate ship in the middle
of the ocean and Capture the Flag on a rock orbiting
Earth. There is a high amount of detail on the characters
and levels in Unreal Tornament. Superb...
A good addition to Unreal
Tornament is that the computer controlled opponents
(bots) shout orders, commands, insults and abuse.
The sounds of weapons are loud, constant and they
actually sound painfull. The screams of enemies as
they are blown apart by your weapons is very atmospheric.
This is a especially satisfing when the computer complements
you on multiple kills or head shots. The music is
also varied and suits each levels theme.
Unreal Tornament has the
most explosive arsenal of weapons on any game in genre.
The thrill of decapatating a opponent from a level
away with a sniper rifle is satisfing just as is chasing
an opponent through a level with a flak cannon as
he/she tries to escape impending death. The game has
so many modes to go through all of each with different
objectives, i.e. deathmatch, assault, and Capture
the Flag. Unreal plays so smooth that its hard not
to love it.
| Unreal is a big and varied
game with five different game modes to choose from each
becoming available when the previous one has been partially
completed. The game is set a reasonable difficulty with
a good learning curve for new comers to the genre of
first person shooters. It is so packed with features
and options that is going to be hard not to keep coming
back for more.
| This game offers good support
on the internet with alot of servers being available,
this game could possibly take the dated Quake2's multiplayer
crown away. But this has yet to be seen from a game
of its type. Included in the game is a server hosting
program, made available to easily configure your own
server and run it from your house.
