Excerpt: There are four explosive ammo weapons, and four energy ammo weapons in the game, and you chose one of each before most matches (there are some matches where you do not, but most matches have you choose the weapons). The explosive ammo weapons are the rocket launcher, the grenade launcher, the flack cannon, and the RipJack. The energy weapons are the shock rifle, sniper rifle, bio rifle, and the stinger.
Summary: Unreal Championship 2: The Liandri Conflict is a fantastic online game which is hot on the heals of Halo 2 as best online multiplayer game, however, it is unlikely to take the thrown. The changes put into UC2 make for a more original play compared to past games in the series and the single player does a good job of providing a fulfilling on-your-own experience but once you jump online you'll see where Unreal really holds its forte.
Excerpt: World War II action games are still going strong, years after some have said that the genre would die out. This is mainly because the guys at Infinity Ward and Activision have continued to ensure high quality in their Call of Duty games. While Call of Duty 2 has been out on the PC for a couple of months now, one needed a pretty powerful computer to really enjoy it in all of its glory.
Excerpt: I know there are some of you out there who are so sick of World War 2-based FPS games that you're just reading this to see how bad I think Call of Duty 2 is. And in my review of the expansion pack to the first Call of Duty, I said that something needs to truly change in this sub-genre if developers want to keep selling WW2 games. What I didn't expect is for the guys at Infinity Ward to do exactly that.
Excerpt: For years, Epic Games has been synonymous with pushing the envelope of first person shooters. Constantly redefining the concept of Deathmatch, Capture The Flag and other multiplayer modes, Epic’s Unreal series has focused on fast, addictive gameplay along with tons of extras to keep fans fragging till the wee hours of the morning.
Excerpt: The Unreal series has had a tough time on consoles so far. PC gamers have been reluctant to buy these games because the ports so far have been generally inferior, and the controls are commonly a pretty big issue. Combine this with the lack of a real online community so far (the first Unreal Championship was plagued with exploits for months, killing off most online replayability enough that it never recovered) and how little-known the Unreal name is with many newer...
Unreal Championship 2: The Liandri Conflict Review
18 April 2005
Excerpt: The Unreal series has, so far, been a very PC-focused series of first-person shooters. While there have been some single-player adventures here and there, the series has been at its best as a multiplayer-focused game with extremely tight gameplay, great maps, interesting modes, and terrific postrelease support from Epic, the series' developer. To date, the Unreal series' console presence has been limited to versions of existing PC games.
Pros: Terrific melee combat, Ridiculous variety, Superb gameplay, Strong Xbox Live support, Raiden!
Cons: Coup de grace finishers could have been more interesting
Conclusion: In finishing, I must say how impressed I am with the way that Epic Games has blended the melee combat in to the FPS game engine, and at no expense to the ranged-weapon aspect of the game. Everything you loved about Unreal Championship is still there, only this time there's more scope, more moves and more obliteration. Lovelorn Russian taxidermists rejoice!
Excerpt: A Epic pode gabar-se de ter criado um dos melhores jogos de acção para a Xbox. Muito, muito bom! A Epic volta a oferecer mais um UT à Xbox. Mas ao contrário da primeira adaptação, estamos perante um FPS que nos apresenta a uma mecânica completamente reformulada, deliciosamente original e que assenta que nem uma luva no espírito dos jogos para consolas. Muito bom!
Conclusion: Für alle Xbox Live-Besitzer und Shooterfreunde ein absoluter Pflichtkauf! Das Spiel ist ohne Zweifel eines der XBL-Highlights dieses Jahres. Trotz der üblichen Schwächen, die viele Live-Spiele haben, macht der Titel einen "Mords"-Spaß, im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes. Wer von Unreal Championship 1 vielleicht etwas enttäuscht war, sollte hier auf jeden Fall mal reinschauen. Third Person, Close Combat, Spitzengrafik und guter Sound sollten genug Argumente sein.
