Summary: I loved Unreal. I bought it for the PC about the same time I played Half-Life. Both game's graphics and storyline were unbeatable at the time, only to be beaten by Halo. Halo is now the standard. So now I have an Xbox. I have played both Halo and Halo2. I have beat the game muliple times and we play huge deathmatches as well. Face it. Halo is the standard and this is now what you have to measure up to. Enter Unreal II. I find it sluggish and buggy.
Summary: Miserable game that uses atrocious checkpoint type saves since the designers apparently lack the imagination it takes to make the game challenging otherwise. This is even worse than most games that use checkpoints due to lack of creativity in that it can set you back very far in your progress.
Summary: unreal 2 the awakening has a lot of problems the graphics suck the weapons are very ordinary the mission objectives are at times nearly impossible to complete and the thing that puts it over the top is its poorly written plot line the cut scenes are boring and you have to sit through them avoid this game and get halo or halo 2
Summary: I bought this game for the Xbox about a month ago, and have regretted it. Unreal II doesn't have much going for it. The graphics are average. What it doesn't have going for it: Load time 1/10, Levels 4/10, AI 4/10, Online 2/10, Cutscne/Briefing 3/10, Replay 1/10. The load times for this game are ridiculously long. The levels are all very simple and plain - I beat the game in under an hour on the hardest difficulty (not including load times).
Summary: Warning: this game is not for kids! Unreal 2 for the Xbox is a first person shooter (FPS) game. You play a space marine named John Dalton. You travel with your small crew of bounty hunters to different planets securing alien artifacts. The alien artifacts are believed to be parts of a super weapon. Everyone wants the weapon, including power hungry aliens. Unreal 2 is very similar to the famous game "Halo", but it lacks the intensity and polish of, Halo.
Summary: Yes folks, it's sad but true, but this game is a very poor port of the PC version. I wonder how the programers could waste the potential this game had on a machine that delivered us a firt gen game like Halo. I was excited about this game; although even the PC version is a less than fantastic game, i kind of liked it. Than comes the time for the Xbox version, and what a disappointment. The graphics are a mere shadow of the PC version.
Conclusion: I got my copy of Unreal last week and couldn't wait to try it out. In the past I've played Quake, Doom, Wolfinstein, etc... I was really looking to capture some of that FPS quality of those games but with updated graphics and sound. Well I was a bit disappointed. Okay I was verrrry disappointed. The graphics are not nearly as good as Quake 3 Arena, and the sounds were not up to what I had expected from an XBOX Game. With all that you may think I didn't like the game.
