Unreal review (PC)

  • Excerpt: Half-Life changed everything. Valve’s seminal shooter spearheaded a dramatic shift in the action gaming landscape, eschewing unfocused blasting in favour of slow-burning survival and a twisting storyline. It took the games industry a little while to catch up, but from the moment of its release in November 1998 one thing was certain in everyone’s minds: this was the best first-person shooter in the world.

  • Summary: The game's engine is still one of the prettiest on the et, and Unreal gets credit for being the first true Quake II-killer in single-play, even if games using an enhanced Quake II engine are now giving it a serious run for its money). A return trip to the hellish planet shows us that Unreal still has a few tricks up its claw-bearing sleeves. With that said, Return to Na Pali is mediocre as mission packs go.

  • Conclusion: Command AI and human teammates with the new voice system, for deadly tactical coordination! Take the ultimate online shooter offline! Try your luck against lightning fast AI in the all-new single player tournament mode! Polished and refined versions of all the popular “classic” UT gametypes: Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, and Instagib CTF! UT2007 is the return of the premier online first-person shooter franchise.

Unreal - Return to Na Pali

Gameguru Mania
2 May 2004
  • Excerpt: The first (and I hope the last) official addon to the well known 3D action Unreal. Legend (creator of Shanara or Death Gate) tried to create their first non adventure title (before Wheel of Time or Unreal 2), but with no great succes. The level design is really simple, only the graphics part of the game is well known "Legend" - super atmospheric textures and pictures. The gameplay is nearly the same that in Unreal with a very similar story.

  • Excerpt: It was to be the Doom-killer; the game that would finally unseat the then-undisputed masters of FPS gaming: the men and women of id software. But to those who played it, Unreal was surprisingly unoriginal, lacking in both innovation and imagination. Its gameplay was uninspired, its story was a confused mess, and its missions were hopelessly simple.

Game Over Online
14 March 2004
  • Excerpt: What takes 4 years and a billion words of hype to make? Unreal. This is the supposed Quake 2 killer. It would have been the Quake killer but it took so damn long to make that Quake 2 was already out. As for the game, its a first-person-shooter. Guide your humanoid character through 40 odd levels vanquishing your foes. Promises for Unreal abound. Everything from dynamic lighting to roaming monster AI (artificial intelligence). How much of them made it into the game?

  • Summary: Finally, This game is one of the best 3D shooters I've played to this date. Although Shogo: MAD is catching my eye that's another story. Unreal is original which is its absolutely best feature. The story is an original alien motif. The environments are original, and the sounds are original. Phew, I think I can stop holding my breath so I have enough strength to call 911.

  • Excerpt: Looking back on the years I have spent playing games, I can only recall a small number that actually changed the way I thought about gaming. These few games brought to life emotions inside of me that made the game come alive in a new way that other games just can't do. Doom, Quake, Civilization, Secret of Monkey Island, Gabriel Knight, Gabriel Knight 2, Tie Fighter, and now Unreal. Unreal is the much hyped up, yet one of the most delayed games ever.

  • Excerpt: Do you remember the storyline in Doom ? Or Quake ? Quake II ? Not likely. Around the time gamers were getting a little tired of first-person shooters whose plots could be summed up as "kill everything, rinse and repeat," along game Unreal .
