Summary: Playing Unreal Tournament 2003 is one of my favourite stress-relief activities; butchering huge numbers of unlucky characters from various fantasy worlds may not be everybody's cup of tea, but if it is, you'll find satisfaction in Unreal Tournament. The game is split into two main parts; a single player 'tournament' mode and a single/multiplayer 'skirmish' mode.
A Successor to Unreal Tournament, But a Worthy One?

Summary: When I purchased a computer system in November 2000 to upgrade my aging PC, a game title I had in mind was Unreal Tournament (UT). After spending just a short while with UT, I realized it was a winner. This game defined the cliché "thrill of victory and agony of defeat." I was almost afraid to play it because I hated to lose, but was it great to win!
Unreal Tournament gets an unfair rap from average users...

Summary: Let me start this review by stating that I'm a fairly finicky gamer. I disliked Half Life: Counter Strike, immensely enjoyed the No One Lives Forever games, and was disappointed by Unreal 2 (though the game had its good merits). As much as I loved the first Unreal Tournament, after spending some quality time with UT2003, I can honestly say that this game is truly... better. Some people disliked the game because it was too demanding of their systems. This is bull.
Summary: Unreal 2003 kicks butt. It's fun and looks fabulous and the online play is superb, however because of the framerate issue(s) I've got to knock this one back one star. If the video on this game was as solid like the classic game or like Quake III I'd have to give this one a five star rating.
Summary: Unreal Tournament 2003 is not as good as the orginal UT. But it is a great game with Excellent level design, graphics, weapon balance, gameplay modes, bot AI and mutliplayer modes with great physics. Just like the first game UT2003 is one of those games that really make the wasted hours, the lost sleep and the money spent upgrading hardware. In the single player game, you can play in Tournament mode.
Summary: I have played this game on the PC and I love it. I herd it was on sale at Amazon so I scooted over to by a copy for my iMac. I almost died when I saw $70.00+ price (sale i thought?) So went the US Amazon site and there it is new low price of $19.99, that's around $30.00 Canadian, but only avalable in the US (Apple has it on line in the US same price) SO BEND OVER CANADA, the AMAZON is comming Through.
Summary: I don't understand the complaints. Yeah Quake 3 arena was good but the original Unreal Tournament brought online FPS to the masses (including me) something Quake never did. This is essentially an update to the original game and luckily still has all the original qualities that the original game had. With the bonus packs there are some great new game types too, like Bombing Run and Invasion.
Excerpt: "...This is a reincarnation of unreal tornament, and a damm good one at that. Starting with the graphics I would have to say they are the best i've seen although you do need a good pc to run it to its full potential. The attension to detail is crazy, to say the least, and with the grass not just being layered textures and actually interacting with your character is astounding, it actually ripples if you walk over it. Now the game play is a bit of a let ...
Great game,great graphics, but you need a good pc to play it

Summary: This is probably one of the best games Epic's created, but my computer's video card is not as good as others. To install the game you need to have a code,so how would install the game if you lost the code? Besides those drawbacks, I love this game overall.I recommend it to any UT fan out there or fans of first-person-shooters.
