Excerpt: Epic tossed out the basics of most every online FPS, giving the traditional Death Match, Team Death Match, and Capture the Flag modes as well as the upgrading of a previous mode into Double Domination. In Double Domination, each team is trying to reach two touchpoints which will change that area into their respective color. Keep both touchpoints the same color for ten seconds and they score a point, but the instant the other team reaches one of the points it resets.
Excerpt: Every once in a while, stellar groundbreaking games come out that shake the world and make everybody weep at night waiting to play them. Unreal Tournament 2003 is not that game. So why did I use that line? I felt like it. If I were writing about the original Unreal Tournament, the preceding paragraphs wouldn’t have been there.
Excerpt: They call it the sophomore jinx: A rookie pitcher has a stunning debut season in the major leagues, only to be sent back to triple-A ball the next year. A band puts out a phenomenal first album, but there's only one good song at best on the follow-up. When Unreal Tournament was released in 1999, it was widely celebrated, widely played, and widely loved. Could the sequel possibly repeat that huge success?
Excerpt: So there's Unreal Tournament 2003, sequel to Unreal Tournament released four years ago. Does it live up the hype, the constant improvement of the series? Was it worth the wait? Now, after a couple days of playing I already know the true - UT 2003 looks and plays really awesome! There's everything what you want from this type of game - exciting, fast-paced&furious&frantic.... nonstop combat and impressive graphics.
Excerpt: Unreal Tournament 2003 is a pure first person shooter. If you're looking for storyline or a challenging single player mode, then look elsewhere. If you want great multiplayer action with a variety of weapons and game types, played across some great looking arenas, then Unreal Tournament 2003 is a must-have game.
Conclusion: The gameplay rocks hard and the graphics rock harder. Multiplayer is fun as hell, providing you don't try to invade California, and just you wait until some Mods arrive on the scene. Mark my words: There's no stopping the powerhouse known only as Unreal Tournament 2003.
Excerpt: Ah... Unreal Tournament 2003... Les fraggeurs l'attendaient ; les accrocs du Deathmatch guettaient sa sortie ; nous-mêmes étions assez impatient de virer la démo pour laisser enfin place au jeu final. C'est chose faite depuis quelques jours et vu l'état de mes yeux après des heures de jeu non-stop, quelque chose me dit que les ophtalmos vont profiter de la déferlante.
