Excerpt: So there's Unreal Tournament 2004, sequel to Unreal Tournament 2003 released 18 months ago. Was it worth the wait? Definitely! I've been playing a lot of UT2004 these past couple of weeks and haven't enjoyed an on-line FPS this much since Team Fortress on the Half-Life engine. There's everything what you want from this type of game - exciting, fast-paced & furious & frantic.... nonstop combat and impressive atmosphere!
Conclusion: Well, just reading this you can see that they have delivered a sweet game and more. Just half of this game's content is alone worthy of a buy, but the whole package makes UT2004 into a gaming-god-behemoth, offering enough action, depth, and expansion possibilities (just think of the mods that are going to come!!), to justify keeping UT2004 's shortcut on your desktop. If you're having second thoughts about buying it yet after reading this, then you're insane. Pardon me.
Excerpt: The Unreal series has enjoyed plenty of success over the last six or so years, and the "Tournament" games have been very popular for online play. Unreal Tournament 2003 was released in late 2003, and while it was somewhat successful, people felt it was missing something to really make it a classic. The core gameplay was adjusted a little too much for the dedicated UT fans' tastes, and the new game mode called Bombing Run never really took off.
Excerpt: Unreal Tournament 2004 (UT2004) is the much anticipated successor to Epic Games 2002’s First-Person-Shooter, Unreal Tournament 2003 (or UT2003). This new “tournament” has been surrounded by hype for many month the demo itself was downloaded by millions all over the world. The most important question, will this game bring back the classic Unreal Tournament feel, which many people said UT2003 lacked?
Excerpt: Unreal Tournament 2004 review Game Over Online - http://www.game-over.com Authors Note : After installing UT2004, I had all kinds of problems: blue screens, reboots, lock ups, dump outs; you name it, I crashed it. I found forums filled with people cursing about unstable gameplay and rotten frame rates, and even went so far as to write the first couple of paragraphs of a review slamming Atari et al for sloppy, buggy work.
Excerpt: This month of March has been truly awesome for action gamers. We’ve had games like The Suffering, Battlefield: Vietnam, FarCry, Unreal Tournament 2004, and probably a bunch more that’s worth mentioning. We’ve had our more or less dry months after Christmas, but all that’s over now. Today we look at Unreal Tournament 2004, the third game in the Unreal Tournament series.
Excerpt: There isn't some clear-cut formula for making a great game, but Epic hasn't ignored bullet-point features in expanding the Unreal Tournament series, which is now in its third installment. The multiplayer-focused first-person shooter series started off in 1999 with great graphics, crisp control, solid networking (which led to smooth online gameplay), and hectic action.
Conclusion: Wrap-Up: Available in DVD or 6 CD formats Unreal Tournament 2004 is a worthy addition to any FPS gamers library. The content included is excellent and the game has full backwards support for UT2003 mods and maps. The community and support behind the game line is truly gigantic. Shortly after release, dozens of quality user built maps and endless custom skins have hit the fan sites new for UT2004 .
Conclusion: You should expect the game to appear in store shelves across the North American continent February 2004. Atari and DE recently announced the delay as they need more time to fine tune the gameplay mechanics and tweak the AI code.
