However way you look at things, you can’t deny Unreal Tournament had balanced gameplay, alluring graphics, and enough features and modes to last you a lifetime. In my personal opinion, backed up by the facts above, you’ll probably find to Unreal to be the champ over Quake challenge in every case and point.

Unreal Tournament for the Dreamcast is one of the best first-person shooter experiences of the early part of this decade. It might have stuck around for a longer time if the Dreamcast had not gone out of production and a little game named Halo not been released in the same year. This game was clearly built for online play and multi-player in general, but the single-player is fun as well. Without online play, the package loses a lot of its value. Nonetheless, this is the best first-person shooter on Dreamcast.
Une bonne conversion pour la Dreamcast, et du bonheur pour les amateurs du genre.
Unreal Tournament goes from PC to home console with a great translation. If you're a fan of games like Quake, I'd recommend this game (especially if your a huge fan of FPS get this game for the Sega Dreamcast). This is a very fun game that will keep you going all night long.
Una conversión perfecta, en todos los sentidos menos en uno. Hoy por hoy es de los juegos que no le puede faltar a nadie, sea o no fan acérrimo de los "mata-mata" en primera persona.

UT on the DC is surprisingly good for a console FPS. It has solid, intuitive controls, good visuals and sound, and a ton of extra modes. It’s definitely worth spending some time with.
Although the Dreamcast is aging in comparison to newer systems like the PlayStation 2 and upcoming Xbox, it still holds its own with quality titles like Unreal Tournament. Solid in design and form, UT provides an excellent multiplayer experience with a first person shooter, two genres relatively lacking in the console market.
The Video Game Critic
After playing Quake III Arena, Unreal Tournament seemed like almost the same game. Both are on-line compatible, multi-player first-person shooters, and both provide a satisfying level of bloody violence. Unreal Tournament looks slightly more polished and high-tech than Quake III Arena, but both play nearly the same.
Unreal Tournament for the Dreamcast is solid, solid, and more solid. It's intensely fun, well balanced, and it safely brings out the violent side in you. Remember, the game is meant to be just that, a game. Don't get it in your head to start practicing the use of shock rifles, pulse guns, and flak cannons in real life. Just enjoy a damn good first-person shooter.
Despite its flaws, UT is what it always has been - a visually impressive and very playable FPS. It picks up from where Quake III Arena left off in terms of AI, on-line capabilities, and graphics, and deserves a place in your ever-growing library of Dreamcast games.
So with all these improvements you would expect me to conclude that Unreal Tournament is the better game? The fact is that even with the added extras and balanced accessibility the game does not look as good as Quake III or plays as fluidly. The sensation I got from playing Quake III is not evident here but that's not to say Unreal Tournament isn't a mighty fine game in its own right, which it is. Now all we need is Half-life. Excellent
Quake III Arena avait posé les bases du Doom-like sur Dreamcast et marqué l'avènement réel d'un style longtemps décrié sur console. The Tournament fait donc légèrement mieux en s'appuyant sur le background hérité de son prédécesseur. Vitesse améliorée, intelligence artificielle en hausse, environnements soignés et maps impressionnantes sont au programme de ce qui est probablement actuellement le meilleur Doom-like de la Dreamcast. La primeur de Quake III Arena jouera néanmoins en sa faveur pour la note, car même si The Tournament apparaît un peu au-dessus, il faut dire qu'il a largement profité de l'aspiration.
