A real breakthrough in multiplayer First Person Shooters when it was released, Unreal Tournament is fast paced, varied and impossibly fun. Although slightly dated now, there is still plenty of fun to be had.

      Unreal tournament is one of the first innovative first person shooters

      Unreal tournament is a fast paced first person shooter that focused more on the online multiplayer mode. It was the first game that featured an ultra realistic graphics engine that could be played on most computers. During multiplayer mode you have the option of selecting different modes like Deathmatch, Capture the Flag,
      Assault, and a special Assault mode.

      DEATHMATCH- you against him, the highest number of frags within a certain amount of time wins the match and advances you further in the tournament.

      CAPTURE THE FLAG - team vs team, where the objective is to steal the other teams flag and bring it back to your base.

      DOMINATION - most confusing mode of all 4, the objective is to control 3 main points for the longest period of time. The number of points plus the number of frags by your team determines the winner.

      ASSAULT - the other team must complete a certain amount of challenges in a certain timeframe. Your objective is to try and kill them so they dont make it in time.

      The games setting takes place in the future, located at the defunct Lliandri mines. The owners of the corporation have converted the facility into a colliseum like experience, where the main objective is to kill the other opponent. To achieve the ultimate goal of the tournament and become Grand champion you must face an assortment of foes, consisting of assassins, bounty hunters, and evil warriors. The vast amount of weaponry in the game, make killing your opponent a different experience everytime. If your aim is perfect you will be awarded a "head shot" which means killing your enemy by shooting them exactly in the head with one shot.

      This game is very addictive and fun. On one occasion I played for almost 8 hours nonstop. I know it was 8 hours because my girlfriend kept reminding me :}

      First person shooter, perfect for anyone who likes endless variations of online gameplay

      Unreal tournament is a long-standing champion of first person shooter game. Not a day goes past where I do not play this online against the thousands of other Unreal Tournament users who are simply addicted.

      The assortment of different maps, challenges and weaponry ensure you will never bore of this classic.

      The game itself is set within a futuristic environment, in the defunct Lliandri mines. The owners of the mining corporation decide to convert the entire facility into scenery for a battle-to-the-death spectator sport, wherein teams of blood thrusty warriors, assassins and bounty hunters fight to become the grand champions.

      There are 4 different game modes:

      A straight up death match, where the person who has the most 'frags' wins the match and advances onto the next stage.

      Capture the flag, where your team fights another in order to penetrate the oppositions base, capture their flag and bring it safely into your own base.

      Assault, which in order to win, your team must complete a set of challenges whilst your opposition attempts to stop you from doing so in a time limit.

      Domination - whereby your team and your opposition attempt to control 3 designated control points for the longest period of time, accruing points not only for the time you have controlled those control points, but also by the number of frags you have totalled along the way!

      It is a magnificent game for playing online - the maps which have been created since it's start by Unreal fanatics is literally unlimited! All can be downloaded automatically via the online server, where you shall also find many different variations of the game being played.

      The sky is the limit for this game.

      Great game

      Unreal Tournament is a first person shooter with the emphasis on online multiplayer carnage. It was developed by Digital Extremes and Epic Games and was published in 1999.

      If you don't have access to the internet then please do not despair as UT has some of the best bots on any online deathmatch. For those who arent familiar with the term, a bot is basically a computer controlled ally or opponent, on UT you can set bot difficulty from novice to godlike, you could play an entire match with and against nothing but bots. In fact UT has a single player campaign that includes a series of arenas that do just that.

      UT has a good number of maps, I was given a cd by a friend that contained hundreds more maps, I'm sure in this day and age they will all be available for download somewhere online. By far and away my favourite map was facing worlds. A meteor floating in space with a large sniping tower at each end.

      The weapons in UT were sci fi in theme and included energy rifles, a gun that fired mini circular saws that riccocheted off walls and the mother of all weapons...the Redeemer!!! This was in essence a mini nuke launcher, when fired the players perspective shifted to a camera mounted within the warhead so you could steer the projectile around the map.

      Unreal Tournament is ostensibly the same as Quake 3 arena which was released at the same time as UT, with one small difference, UT is actually good. If you are torn between which one to buy then I'd say go for UT. Quake is one of those games thats massively overhyped, it's claimed to be the best game ever made and yet in reality it's one of the worst.

      There are 6 game modes
      -deathmatch-
      All Vs All, first to reach a certain number of kills

      -Team Deathmatch-
      Same as above but...ummm...in teams : P

      -Capture-
      Steal opponent teams flag and return it to your base

      -Domination-
      Claim and keep various map points for as long as possible

      -Last Man Standing-
      Once your dead your dead, no respawns, last man left alive

      -Assault-
      Two teams attack or defend an objective respectively

      UT was a monster of a game when it came out and still is, now there are a couple of sequels that throw vehicles into the mix, so get stuck in to the UT universe.

      One of the greatest games ever!

      Everybody probably heard about this outstanding shooting game, I decided to write a review about it because I've got more than 6 years experience playing it. I think that the time I've spend playing this game will allow me to write a good review.
      First time I installed this game on my PC, I was wondering is it going to be better than my favorite on this time Counter Strike. I've started the game the intro maked me ask a question "Is it going to be good?", I've created my player and started to play the campaign, my first play was a "Deathmatch" (main game mode) it was 1 on 1, and I really enjoyed it, the weapons were something new, Rocket Launcher, Flack Cannon these two are my favorite ones and of course Sniper rifle. Because of this game I believe in love from first look, I just love this game.

      Other Game-mode is "Team Deathmatch" it's the same as "Deathmatch" but you join your FRAG count with other players. You get frags for killing players from opposing team, first team to gain the requested amount of frags wins the match. It's really enjoyable mode if two teams have similar "killing skill" when you play till 100 frags, and both of the teams have let's say 90, the adrenaline jumps to maximum and it's great pleasure if you win and if you loose then you want revenge and you keep on playing.
      "Capture the flag" used to be my favorite game mode for few years. First it's a team play mode, you need to have good tactics and play co-operatively to win. Your objective is to capture your enemy flag and take it to your flag. The maps for this mode are usually symmetrical, both of the teams have its base on opposing ends of the map, and in the center of the base is the flag waiting to get captured. Usually you need to capture 3 flags to win.

      "Domination" to be honest I've never liked this mode much. There are 3 points on a map, you and your team need to control them to get points, more strategic points you control faster your score grows. The match ends when one of the teams reach requested score.
      "Assault" is my favorite game mode as I don't like to kill for nothing, here you've got a certain mission, you and your team need to conquer enemy base by destroying some points, switching switches or just getting to some point on the map. You've got time limit to do it, there are two rounds on each map, first you attack and then you defend, if you conquer the base, then you need to stop the team to conquer it faster than you. The team that conquers the base in shorter time wins the match.

      "Last Man Standing" as in the name your objective is to stay alive as long as possible it's opposite to Deathmatch. You start the match with armor and weapons (in other modes you need to find weapons and armors) and with X number of lives, once you run out of lives you lose, player who is the Last Man Standing wins the match.
      Audio and Graphics for the time of the game was released were outstanding, now they're still good enough to enjoy playing this game.

      If you never played this game before you should seriously concern getting a copy, it's one of the best games you can find! I've been playing this game for more than 6 years and I still enjoy playing it so if you like games with long playability it's a great choice.

      A perfect online game

      In the late 1990s, there were two FPS games to rule them all - Quake 3 Arena, and Unreal Tournament. A debate over which is better will just send me into a tailspin, so I won't go there. Regardless of which is actually better, what is certain is that Unreal Tournament is one of the best FPS games ever made, particularly because of its stunning online mode that is still played today the world over.

      Although you can play a single player campaign against bots, it's not even worth talking about if you have an Internet connection (which, of course, you do, reading this), because the online multiplayer offering, simply, is one of the best online experiences you'll ever have. Loaded with numerous modes, such as Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, and even a special Assault mode (where you have to try and take over an opponent's fortress), there's lots to do.

      Also, there's a vast array of sophisticated weaponry, from laser and ray guns, to sludge launchers, to high-powered sniper rifles, and even a disc-launcher called the Ripper. Not to mention, you have a device called a Translocator, which allows you to teleport to other locations on the map, and if you manage to translocate as someone stands on the reciever of the device, you'll turn them into mush. OH, and I almost forgot about the Redeemer - a HUGE rocket that, if fired into a crowd players, will obliterate them all in a split second, and you get to guide it yourself with special rocket-o-vision.

      The maps are unequivocally what makes the game what it is - I became incredibly addicted to a Capture the Flag map called Facing Worlds, which is just expertly designed, and perhaps the best online map I've ever played. It allows use of all of the best weapons in a very balanced way, and even if you don't win, it's a hell of a lot of fun!

      Whilst serves don't get as much attention now due to the newer UT games, it's still in the eyes of many the best of the bunch, and is certainly an online hallmark that, in my opinion, hasn't ever really been bettered. This is an insanely addictive game, and I remember spending many weekends playing it and doing nothing else as a kid!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A hallmark PC FPS game. This game has stood the test of time, an all time classic.

      One of my friends sent me a link on YouTube the other week to a few of the music tracks from the original Unreal Tournament - and it just had me gushing over a game I played for 6 years solidly online all over again. If there is one game out there that I have the fondest memory for, this is it.

      Unreal Tournament (now known today as UT99) was made by Epic games, who were known back in the olden days for the original Unreal - a landmark graphical game that showed off the first real-time dynamic lighting and large open vistas in an FPS. The multiplayer was severely lacking however, and this is why UT turned up, in direct competition with Quake 3. I am not sure if we will ever again have a battle as bloody as these two huge juggernauts in the gaming industry ever again, but only a fool would say UT99 was not the surprising victor.

      UT99 is a fast paced FPS designed purely for multiplayer combat. You could play offline against bots of varying difficulty levels (which are still surprisingly better than most AI in today's games), or pitch your skills online or a LAN. There were a number of game modes, ranging from traditional free-for-all games such as deathmatch (everyone kill everybody else) and last man standing (instead of highest kills win, the aim is not to die!), to team based battles.

      It was these team-based games that helped make UT99 the classic it is. Unlike Quake 3, which was based entirely around the ultimate deathmatch game, UT99's team based games became an instant hit. Capture-the-flag was probably the most popular online, where two teams battle it out against each other to capture the opponent's flag whilst protecting their own. There was also assault, where a defending team must defend an objective from the attacking team, with each objective being different depending on what map was being player. In addition there's regular team-deathmatch, plus domination, where players must work together to control certain areas of a map for as long as possible. CTF and Assault were fan favourites, and playing these game modes today make me realise a lot of modern games forget what their primary purpose is - TO HAVE FUN!

      I used to play UT99 CTF in a clan with the instagib mutator. Mutators allow you to alter the game mechanics drastically to add more variety and throw in a few laughs. Insta-gib replaced all weapons with a one-shot kill rifle, whilst others included low gravity (all jumps are much more floaty), big heads (the better your doing, the larger your head becomes), or rockets only. These mutators still live on today in the more recent UT games, showing how popular they are.

      Mutators are not the only legacy game play element alive in the modern Unreal games - a lot of maps are actually taken from this; that's how good they were! CTF-FacingWorlds, DM-Deck17, DM-Hyperblast to name but a few, but the quality of maps in UT99 meant people were always playing a variety of them online, not just one or two. And considering the game came with over 50, the amount of replayability was staggering.

      Unlike recent UT incarnations, this game is more brutal and personal than any of the others put together. UT2003/2004 had you shooting at tiny pixels in the distance, as the world was huge, the characters were small. UT3 improved the scaling issue, but now every character looks like they are wearing cars for armour. But UT99 had it spot on - the action was fast, in your face, and personal. I still have nightmares from the bot Loque killing me every single time. You were not shooting little specks in the distance, or just a suit of armour. It was more gladiatorial, something that is sorely missing from recent Unreal Tournament games.

      Graphically this game is now very dated, but at the time it was only bested by Quake 3. The music is still some of the best techno tunes around, and the taunts by other players are almost as legendary as the game itself.

      If you want to know why people keep on talking about how good UT99 was, the best way to find out is to buy it and play it. There are still servers online today with plenty of players, and now pretty much every single computer made in the last 8 years can play this game no problem. You owe it to yourself to play a bit of history.

        Best shootem up ever

        What can I say that will allow me to get the message across of how good this game really was and still is?

        Well I would say go buy it and play it! There's nothing like the experience of something to show you how good it really is. Like the Nemesis at Alton Towers. If I described that here you just wouldn't be able to see how good the ride actually is, but enough about that...back to business.

        Unreal Tournament and Quake 2 were rivals games brought out at roughly the same time (if I remember correctly). Unreal Tournament beat Quake 2 hands down in my opinion. There were a few simple reasons for this:

        1. Unreal Tournament moves faster, quake was a little too slow.
        2. The range of weapons and the abilities of the weapons in Unreal Tournament were better than that of Quake 2.
        3. The game types and the maps of Unreal Tournament were more organised and fairer on both teams.

        The online multiplayer mode has become quite a huge hit. You can create your own online clan and play clan wars against other clans all around the world in clan leagues. Battling for the top position to move up the league tables and be the best.

        That's what this game is all about, competition, practice and glory.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Unreal Tournament is one of the best First Person Shooters ever.

          Unreal Tournament is the first game I played online, and it was also my favourite then. It took me a few days to understand what it was about, but it was one of the simples games to understand. As long as the single player version is considered, it is not too hard, as the real challenge waits online. This is the only game which I continued playing even after I upgraded my PC and tried lots of new ones. This game just happens to be too addictive. Being one of the most popular online games ever, there are large variety of maps available for this game on the internet.

          MINIMUM SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
          Pentium 200 MHz Processor
          Windows 98/ME/2000/XP
          32 MB of system RAM
          600 MB of free Hard Disc Space
          4x or faster CD-ROM/DVD-ROM drive
          DirectX 7.0 Compatible Sound Card
          PCI Local Bus Video Card
          Internet: 28.8K minimum speed

          The game features a number of game modes.
          Deathmatch: This is the basic mode of Unreal Tournament. This involves the players killing eachother to earn frags. The player who is left with the maximum number of frags in a time limit or the one who meets a frag limit wins the game. The number of suicides will be subtracted from the number of kills to determine the total frags. Team Deathmatch is another variation of the usual deathmatch where people fight in teams and the team which meets the requirements first wins.

          Capture the Flag: This is a very popular game mode where the players are put into two teams with both having a base with a flag. The players have to take the opponent's flag and get it to their own base to win a point. The team with more points will win the game. This game mode will have less firepower usage as the players are more concerned about capturing the enemy flags and scoring points. Defending the flag is also very important in this game mode.

          Domination: This is my favourite game mode and it involves the player taking control of a number of control points in the map, and each second with these control points under our dominance will give us points until we reach the time or point limit. The most used Domination map would be the Tomb of Sesmar which is available with the demo version too. This would be a more tactical type of game mode compared to the others, but can depend more on the luck factor too.

          Assault: The very much innovative game mode in Unreal Torunament. This one is more about completing a number of objectives in a limited time. The first time will have to attack and complete these objectives and the opponents will have to defend. Then the whole thing is reversed, as the defenders will now have to attack and finish all those objectives faster than the other team. The team which finishes in less time is the winner. This game mode was removed in Unreal Tournmant 2003, but was brought back in Unreal Tournament 2004.

          BETTER KILL THAN BE KILLED
          The concept of the game is simple. It is another First Person Shooter and it is like "kill or be killed". Just keep moving around and shooting, and if you have a good eye hand co-ordination, you will win it quite easily. You will have lots of weapons ranging from the Chainsaw and Impact Hammer to Rocket Launcher, Flak cannon as well as the most powerful Redeemer which can kill anything which is in a large area including the player. There is also the classic sniper rifle and the minigun. There are also lots of characters to choose from.

          You can always try any of the available maps in the practice session, and the here the game can be fully customized including the number of bots and the time or frag limits. You can also add some mutators to the game which changes the game style upto an extent. The most popular one in this list would be InstaGib mode which allows a single-shot kill as we use another weapn, an enhanced shock rifle in the game. The others include low gravity, flak arena and chainsaw melee.

          The plot of the game takes us to the year 2291, and in an attempt to control violence among deep space miners, the earth government has legalised no holds barred fighting and Liandri corporation, a powerful entity of that time has managed to conduct some major tournaments which involved lots of fights with lots of gore. Some of the most skilled warriors from the different parts of the galaxy were selected to fight in this tournament and finally meet the tournament's current champion known as Xan.

          The game's graphics was among the best at that time. The characters were realistic and the level design was awesome, especially at the maps like Tomb of Sesmar, Morpheus and Phobos moon. The variety among levels is another important factor as we are to fight in trains, ancient ruins, castles, ships, space stations and on the roof of buildings. The sounds are also amazing, and the voices of the players also add to it. The game's gore level may be too high for some viewers, but it only increases the originality of the game. We can always track our records using the ngstatus option in the game.

          Unreal Tournament is a real great experience and even if there won't be many people who haven't tried it, I would recommend this to anyone. The game even got some additional modes like Jailbreak and Thievery which can be downloaded from the internet, and these can really change the whole game itself. Its low requirements makes it a great choice, and it certainly is one step ahead of Quake 3 Arena which was released at almost the same time. If you have good net connection, do check the munltiplayer too, instead of sticking to offline play. You may have to download some extra contents in some maps, but its fun.

          THANKS FOR READING MY FIRST REVIEW HERE :-)

            • "not much else"

            Unreal Tournament is the second fps game based in the unreal universe. It is based upon the idea that killing can become a sport. Players select a team and fight there way through different types of matches including assult (where players must defend a point for an amount of time and then defend it for an amount of time), Capture the flag (two teams have a flag they must defend why trying to capture the oppoents), domination (teams fight for certain points which when captureds they gain points for) and an every man for himself style of game. The game has many differnet weapons to frag (kill) your opponets including the Reedemer (a mini nuclear warhead), the minigun and sniper rifiles. Each weapon also has its own unique secondry fire mode which means that some weapons can be very powerful but use up more ammo. The game has very good graphics and sound and from personal expereince is bested played on a good spec pc. The internet has a wide range of mods bringing more variation and longativety to the game.

            -----Unreal Tournament(single player)----- Unreal Tournament is a first person shooter where your basic aim is to kill everything you see. The story is that in the near future people got bored of all the entertainments they had and someone called Xan invented a new way of having fun – fight. He also created a lot of arenas where he holds his tournament. They are all sorts of places from a lost temple somewhere deep in the jungle to a low-gravity skyscrapers. Each tournament has 5 stages with few levels in each. If you complete all the levels, get to the very last level and defeat Xan himself in one-on-one skirmish battle – you are the champion. -----The beginning stage and the competitions----- You enter the game as a soldier. You pick a team you want to belong to and chose your sex/body/face. You also chose the difficulty level and there are about 5 (or 7) different ones. Then, straight away you enter the competition. The 5 different stages require different skills from you. In some you will act on your own and blow the heads off anything that is still moving, in some you will have to act with your team and use the tactics to achieve your target. **Deathmatch** This is just ‘kill-them-all’ stage. The first level is very easy and you fight only one bloke who is rubbish, but the further you go – the harder levels become, the stronger people you have to fight. All the way through the stage you use different weapons you find. The main target is to get a certain amount of frags (kills) before anyone else does. Pretty simple, even though the last few levels may be rather hard. Hint: Run, jump, strafe don’t get hit. But at times its important to go in an take as many lives with you as you can before you get shot. **Capture the flag** Obvious from the title. You have a base and your enemy has a base. Each base has a little podium where you’ll see a flag (yours is
            red, your enemy’s is blue). Your mission is to steal the enemy’s flag, bring it to your base and touch you flag. And this is the wide variety of tactics comes in. How to get the flag, how to get it to your base without getting killed, how to keep your flag at your base so when you get the enemy’s flag you get a point…. You have a team of people and you can give them orders, so you can tell some to guard you base, capture the enemy’s flag, run around and kill everyone, follow you etc. So there are as many ways to get the flags as many people play the game. And yu will probably have your own when you start. Hint: Leave people guard your flag and take the rest with you. People wondering around pointlessly are useless on this. **Domination** There are 3 check-points on the map. There are 2 teams. The aim is to get a certain amount of points before the opponents do. And you do that by controlling these points. When you control a check-point your score goes up. When you control more than one – it goes up even quicker. This stage as very tactical too. You need to make sure you teammates guard the points you’ve already captured and capture the ones you opponent controls. When your opponent gets a point you need to make sure someone goes and gets it back. The whole game is a constant losing - capturing of points. Quite hard at times, but most of the times when you work out where all the points are and how to get to them quickly you win. Hint: Find 2 points, which are close to each other. Forget about the third one and run between these two getting them back quickly when you enemy captures them. This way you always control 2 points, which is more than your opponent controls and your score goes up quickly. **Assault** There is an object (like a ship or a fortress) and you have to complete a number of tasks inside that object (press this button then pull that rope and blow up that computer). W
            hile you do that you are being timed down plus you have the whole of your opponents team to prevent you from doing this. When you win, you swap with your enemy and defend. When you work out where things are it’s pretty easy, but before that you will probably lose a few times. Every time you die you star at the very beginning of the level and you have to get all the way to the points. So if you don’t die – you save time. When you defend the same thing happens. But when you die defending you appear at the last point you have to defend and you don’t have to go anywhere. Hint: When you attack, tell all your people to attack and not to follow you. This works much better. When defend - tell everyone to cover you and stand by one point with all your team protecting it. **Challenge** This is basically deathmatch, but instead of fighting people you fight cyborgs on very odd futuristic maps. These guys are hard-core. They run better, shoot better, kill better. They are a bit of practice before you face Xan on the last level of this stage. You can only play challenge when you complete every single level of every other competition. Hint: By the time you get there you would have completed the deathmatch stage and therefore know how to kill. Every time you win one of the competitions above you get to watch a little trailer where you get a very nice cup. When you collect all the cups you complete the game. It’s very important to use you radio properly. The orders you give to your teammates really help you survive. Considering that most of the time you do all the work (capture flags, points, destroy targets) it’s much better to have your bots killed that yourself. -----Weapons----- There are lots of them and all of them are quite original. There are no ‘bad guns’. All guns are good if you know how to use them. **Drill Hammer** (1) The most basic weapon in the g
            ame, but deadly when you know how to use it. Mode 1 – fast little hits which don’t do much damage Mode 2 – If you hold the button for a while the thing charges and when you get close to your opponent and let go you’ll have the pleasure to see his insides all over the floor. Its really powerful! **Enforcer** (2) A pistol. You start the game with this and a drill hammer, and every time you get killed you appear with those 2 only. If you pick another Enforcer you will not only get the ammo, but also another pistol in your other hand. This way they are quite fast and dangerous. Mode 1 – Single shots. Mode 2 – Fire faster but not as accurate. Good at close range. **Bio Rifle** (3) Little gun that fires green blobs of something toxic. It sticks to walls and after some time disappear. Short range because it works like a bow: if you want to shoot further – lift it up. If you put lots of this stuff on the floor and someone walks on it – they will lose health. Mode 1 – Fires single blobs Mode 2 – Hold down the button and watch the thing collect the toxic stuff like a syringe. Then let go and a massive ball of it will fly out, land and burst out in smaller blobs. **Shock Rifle** (4) Fires blue shock charges. Average weapon. Mode 1 – Fires long rays Mode 2 – Fires big balls, which are more powerful than rays, but are slow and easy to dodge. If you do mode 2 and then mode 1 on the same spot, a blue ball will fly out, then will get hit by the ray and explode. The explosion isn’t that greas, but looks good. **Pulse Rifle** (5) Little rifle that fires green pulse charges. Mode 1 – Fire little green balls. Quite fast and powerful. Mode 2 – Constant ray of pulse charges. Not as powerful, but easier to hit the enemy **Reaper** (6) Shoots little round razors.
            Mode 1 – Normal razors which bounce off the walls Mode 2 – Explosive razors, which explode when hit something. **Minigun** (7) A normal minigun. Mode 1 – Shoots a constant burst of lead. Mode 2 – Faster but not as accurate. **Flack Gun**(8) The best close range weapon. Fires red hot flack Mode 1 – Normal flack which is very powerful. Mode 2 – Flack bombs. Even more powerful. **Rocket Launcher**(9) My personal favorite. May be the best weapon in the game. Mode 1 – Fires rockets. If you hold down the button it loads up to 6 rockets to fire at the same time. Mode 2 – Grenades. You can load and fire more than one as well. **Dominator**(0) A BIG gun. You can only have one rocket at a time and when you shoot it you make a little nuclear explosion. Mode 1 – Fires a big nuclear rocket Mode 2 – You control the rocket that you’ve fired. You are sort of inside it and fly it to your enemies. Very cool. While you do that you can get shot and the rocket will explode where it got to. **Chain saw** (1) An alternative for drill hammer. You can’t get in the actual game – only in practice session with a mutator. Mode 1 – Just saws the stuff in front of you. Mode 2 – Swings it. Easy to get Head-Shots. **Teleporter** (0) Not really a gun, just a teleporter. You have a little device, which fires a disk in front of you. Doesn’t go too far. Helps to get somewhere you can jump or reach. Mode 1 – Fire the disk Mode 2 – Teleport there -----About the game itself----- This game is set up as a multiplayer game, but instead of having live people you have bots. And it worked really well making a whole campaign if missions where you fight with bots against the bots. The idea is really original – no more standar
            d monsters. The game follows all the rules of network playing and is especially good for people that can’t play over the Internet or LAN, but really want to. The graphics are very good and detailed but the game works on even slow computers. The sounds are quite realistic and each bot has about a dozen phrases he keeps saying every time he kills someone. There are many levels of difficulty which makes the game suitable for the beginners and the pros. There are many teams to choose from with different stories, costumes, faces. There are even an all-girls and all-boys teams. The practice mode lets you play on all maps from the campaign plus some special ones. You can set the amount of bots, personalize them, play on any map and any game mode (deathmatch, domination). It’s perfect for practicing battles before the real battles. -----Multiplayer----- Multiplayer is almost the same as campaign. This just shows that the bots are brilliant and the game is amazing. A part from the fact that people are more fast and clever (but I bet Xan could beat most of them) and it is more fun to play against real players.

              Disadvantages

              First of all let me tell you that Unreal Tournament is the most addictive game available for british citizens to buy for any computer system. The amount of options available in this game are unbeleivable and consequently, both originality and playablility are of the charts. Unreal Tournament, or UT, consists of two gaming styles. Single Player and Multiplayer. However there is not much difference between either. In single player mode you begin a tournamnet in which you compete in a number of games covering everyones favourite, Deathmatch, Capture The Flag, Domination and Assault. Once every level has been completed you are brought to the main competition where you face harder opponents. Once you have defeated these, "Xan", organiser of the tournament awaits you on a space station. Xan moves with unbeleivable speed and his shooting is pin point. Only the most competent of UT gamers manage to win the tournament. There are two new games unseen before which are present in Unreal Tournament. Domination consists of two teams battling in an arena trying to gain and hold control of three bases. Team work and co-ordination are essential and only these two qualities used together will ensure a winning team. Assault is a mission based game in which you are told to complete four objectives. The enemy tries to stop you and there is a time limit for you to overcome aswell. Once you complete your mission the tables are turned. You become the defence and the enemy attacks you. They try and beat your set time. The only way you can win this game is by having both good team skills, good attacking skills and good defensive skills. Multiplayer is amazing. No additional software is required to play online. There is an inbuilt server system in Unreal Tournament and this is constantly streaming with millions of players fighting to be king of the tournament. All of the above gaming modes are included. As with most online gaming new user made l
              evels and modifications are available and add a fourth dimension to an already 3 dimensional interface. In built into the system is its own statistics logger. Through the web site http://www.ngworldstats.com you can gain access to all of your gaming attributes that you have gained through playing online. This game is truly one of the greatest games ever produced and it is no surprise that it has won many glamourous awards from many review magazines. This game is an essential part of any true gamers collection and no computer hard drive is complete without a copy of UT installed onto it. One last thing before I get back to killing people, have you got a tough keyboard? YOUR GONNA NEED IT!!!!!!!!!

                Unreal Tournament, game of the year edition, is an unreal game. It has several modes ? the best by far being capture the flag, it has totally awesome graphics, and the best of the best game play. Quake has nothing on this game. It has the best features possible. It is advisable to buy the ?Totally Unreal? package, which includes (as well as Unreal Tournament, of course). It includes ?Unreal Tournament CD two?, ?Unreal?, and ?Unreal Mission Pack?. The classy weapons/guns of the game are: Redeemer (Which is self ? suicidal) Rocket Launcher Flak Cannon Minigun Ripper Sniper Rifle Pulse Gun GES Bio Rifle Shock Rifle Double Enforcers Enforcer Impact Hammer Chainsaw Translocator From the top of the above list are the best weapons, lowest in the list are worst. It has a brilliant range of individual games in your ?Unreal Tournament? mission. First of all you will be able to play only ?Deathmatch?, which involves killing (shooting) every person you find. Then you will unlock ?Domination?, which is the best practice for your next task, ?Capture The Flag?, I wont give away any more of the features you can unlock but there are ten sub-games to every games. Altogether there is fifty sub-games. Very long-lasting. There is one downside to the game; it is very skilled once you get to, near the end of, ?Capture The Flag?. Altogether the game is totally unreal. It has, in a word, ?excellence? about the game. It is a must buy.

                  I haven't ever liked shooter games, walk around to find the right passage, walk to find the right key, the right door, walk, walk... stop!! Now you have to fire, fire and then... fire!! It's a revolutionary video game: you are in the arena and you fight against other players (if you play offline you're against BOTs, but if you play online it's more exciting to play against other real people), you have to kill, you have to gain points and points. It isn't important if you die, just one click and you can fight, there aren't pauses. It's very interesting because it isn't boring, you don't have to think, to solve problems (there is the school for this...) you have only to play! The graphic isn't perfect, remember that it's an old game, but surely it's very beautiful. There are many weapons, with different shots, you have to decide quickly what to use. There are also different types of play: "Capture the flag" (you have to protect your flag and to steal the enemy's flag), "Assault" and many others. It's a must!
