Summary: When I got this game for my birthday, I wasn't really happy; I had no internetconnection to play the game online. But as soon as I installed the game, I came to the conclusion that this game rocks even offline. The AI is very adjustable, and it just looks like you are playing online. If you buy this product, you will play it forever...
Summary: I really loved Unreal Tournament for the PC, so I was excited to see it come out in PS2 format. I was impressed with how close the PS2 version was to the PC version, but extremely disappointed with how difficult it is to control the character. First Person Shooters, are, after all, about moving your character around and killing the opposition, and it is just too difficult to control your character using the PS2 controllers.
Summary: I just bought this game and I think it is extremely hard to control the guy running around and shooting. Maybe I just need to play it more but its pretty hard to control. So if you are one of those people who dont have very good coordination, dont buy this game.
Excerpt: Whilst the PS2 Analogue Control did the job, I friggin loathed having an action mapped to the L3 and R3 buttons - in particular the auto-center for the former. The game is USB keyboard and mouse compatible, and would have allowed me to avoid this. There are several characters to pick from, with there being as many to unlock. Not that they make a real difference though. Also, some of them share voice samples.
Pros: Decent graphics and music, fairly fast FPS action
Cons: Lack of quick restart, only 4 competitors in multiplayer, action a bit choppy
Excerpt: If you havn't played this where have you been !!!?? This game offers loads of wepeons and it full of gory fun. It has a training level to get you started and you can also get cheat codes for it at: www.gamewinners.com and if thats not enough to convince you to get the game read on. When I started the game I loved it.The training level will tell you everything you need to know.
Pros: Lots of weapons , characters , really fun when playing online
Excerpt: Unreal was originally on the PC and it was title "most violent first person shooter". Now, it has come to the PS2, but is it as violent and better than the PC version? Unreal Tournament features very detailed graphics and the variety of weaponry are unmistakable. The weapons are great as you find one that can slit an opponent's head off!! But, to my great disappointment, the multi-player mode is very, very shallow compared to the original.
Pros: Good graphics, weaponry and choice of characters
Cons: Multi - player mode lacks in amount of levels and modes
Summary: 'Unreal' has become one of those legendary names in gaming, like Quake, Doom, etc. - one of the first-person shooters which set the benchmark for its time. You hardly feel like a 'proper'gamer unless you have experienced these classics, so when UT appeared on PS2, I took the plunge.
Summary: As some others have already stated this game is a conversion from the PC. It works well apart from the framerate which is appalling and the fact that you REALLY need a keyboard and mouse to be any good unless you've never played on PCs. On the PC I beat my 14 yr old daughter 12 - 2 every time. On the PS2 she beats me almost every time usually 6 or 7 - 2. Part of my problem is the controller, it just doesn't work for me. Give me a keyboard and mouse any day.
Excerpt: This game as been one of the best games on the Pc for the last couple of years. The PS2 version although a good conversion of the classic suffers due to at the moment being no online games for the PS2 The graphics are very detailed and in my verdict just as good or if not as good as the PC. However because this is on a console the controls on the PSX pad are quite akward and do take a whilst to get use to.
Excerpt: Welcome to the... Past Unreal was a revolutionary game when it was released for the PC… over two years ago. Sure, it never quite caught on and dominated the market in the way that the classics from Id always have, but it raised the bar of graphics exellence in First Person Shooters by quite a margin, and introduced a variety of revolutionary weapon designs and ideas into a somewhat stagnant genre.
Pros: The definitive multiplayer FPS . . now on your favourite console
Cons: Comparatively poor graphics, lack of multi - player options .
