Reload. Rev up. Ride out. The ultimate sport of kill-or-be-killed is now an explosive new experience, with mind-blowing new ways to move like lightning and annihilate enemies. For the first time, pilot a formidable force of battle vehicles that tear across land, skies and deep space. Load up pulverizing new weapons. Storm across 40 never-before-seen arena maps. Move faster, fly higher, shoot further.
Another supreme classic, but in the multiplayer section. I like the first Unreal Tournament more than 2004. Maybe it's because I got it all wrong or maybe because I first played Unreal Tournament 2004 two years ago. Epic Games have made a good job making it look and feel like the original game which is one aspect why this game is so good.
The graphics are not that much outdated actually, the game still looks beatiful at many points. Playing this is still possible, there is a few strong servers left that you can check out, be aware though - they players in them are probably pro.
Fun to play game. Music is great as always. A bit different gameplay/movement than UT99 with the other weapons. Jump distances are different from UT99 (noticed when converting a bunnytrack map). Newly added Bombing Run gametype is great. I get the impression that the legs of some characters are a bit too long if you compare them to the upper body. The ragdoll system works well and the static meshes make it look good. Could have stayed with the classic team logos. Many characters to choose from and unlocking characters by winning in the tournament is a good way to make players play and earn them.
I've played this game for 10 years and have hundreds of maps, characters, weapons, mods, and dozens of gametypes. With Ballistic Weapons, Sergeant Kelly's Weapons, Ragdoll Mutilation, Bloody Hell, and Tweak Tool it is the most rampaging slaughterhouse I've ever seen in any multiplayer FPS. The graphics and physics are way ahead of it's time and this game has the most replay value of any game I have ever played. I am also a mapper and have been doing so for 8 years. If you have the Editor's Choice Edition of UT2004 you can find the editor in the system folder so you can always make a new map to kill people in. UT2004 set the standard for fast paced bloody mayhem. I hate easy bots in games and Godlike bots in UT2004 will kick your *** hard so you can always train at your own level without feeling bored. Perfect game.
