Every time I try to start the game it says "OpenGL 2.0 or higher is required!" which is weird because I have a higher version of OpenGL. Is this a bug that several people are facing or is it just me?

Best freeware FPS ever. The new Unreal Tournament could learn something from the creators of this game. Especialy how to make a game fun. Thanks for the new version, works perfectly, and fixed every of my problems in the old version.

Runs without a single lag with 10on10 match. XD

UT is a UT. RE is a UT. You are probably just another hater. These two titles are a different games, UT has power, RE has speed. Thats all. dont compare these two titles because its like comparing Need For Speed Underground to Gran Turismo
