If you like your FPS multi-play with a bit of variety and subtlety then UT is for you. If you only need DM got with Q3A, well and if you have broadband access. There is no game out there that has better net code that UT right now. Any game that can be played competitively on a 28.8 connection has got my vote. Epic has buried all the criticism they got for Unreal's performance, once and for all. Get both UT and Q3A, but if you can only get one, UT is the one!
Unreal Tournament is a phenomenal game with exceptional graphics ,design, and multiplayer gameplayer gameplay. Quake fans will argue that Arena is better, while Unreal devotees will only touch Tournament. Those few who can appreciatie both get the best of both worlds, and plenty of end up with more lost time than they might like to admit.
Unreal Tournament is an outstanding first-person shooter, worthy of your purchase. It has got great levels and beautiful graphics. Its improved artificial intelligence provides maximum fun off-line, while sharpening those necessary skills to deal with those nasty humans you'll eventually run into in online play. With bunches of new maps and a strong emphasis on team play, I can't imagine a better way to spend my winter gaming days. Please have a blast with this great game!
The bottom line with this game is that Epic has created a masterpiece against which I will be measuring all other first person shooters. If you enjoy the genre, this is the must have title for your Mac.
While it isn't perfect, a little more tweaking of the code will bring it incredibly close. The fact that this is an incredible value of single- and multiple-player gaming, with intelligent bots thrown into the mix and an amazing variety of game styles, makes this edge out Quake III as king of the deathmatch. Of course, if you really like deathmatches, be smart and buy both--you'll pretty much be assured of being showered in gibs for a long time to come.

It is a curious thing when a game can both bust a game genre - in this case, the first-person deathmatch - wide open, and yet slam the door on said genre forever. Unreal Tournament takes the deathmatch-only style of gaming so far, and does so with such excellence, that it essentially burns the bridge behind it. UT covers the bases so completely, it is tough to imagine a game taking the concept any further. Mixing powerful weapons, diverse game play, gorgeous graphics and fearsome AI opponents, Unreal Tournament guarantees a powerful, pulse-pounding experience for fans of the first-person shooter.
L’arrivée des cartes 3D sur les ordinateurs a permi la mise au point de jeux de plus en plus réalistes, et l'évolution risque de s'accèlerer encore dans les années à venir. UT fut l’un des pionnier de cette évolution : c’est véritablement le chef-d’oeuvre de l’année 1999 qui a volé la star à Quake 3 (et la rivalité demeurera éternelle).
L'évolution étant perpétuellement en marche, la prochaine génération de jeux en vue subjective risque d'apporter son lot de nouveautés, au delà même de l'aspect graphique. La suite de UT, intitulée UT2003, établira le camp dès le mois de juillet sur PC, ce faisant prenant une longueur d'avance sur un Quake 4 ou Doom 3 qui se font désirer.
Le duel des sagas ne fait donc que commencer !
Honestly, I didn't expect to enjoy Unreal Tournament as much as I did. After all, the similarities between this game its predecessor pretty much stop with the engine. Also, I'm a story guy, and I usually can't really get into a game without proper motivation. Well, Unreal Tournament, with no cut scenes or back story other than the throw-away premise of a tournament started to stop space miners from getting too rambunctious, has practically no motivation whatsoever...until you're in the game. Then your motivation is to not become a body in another player's mound, and that, my friends, is motivation enough.
