As you would expect, the XMP mode leverages the same engine used in Unreal II, providing extremely high quality visuals. A year later, the graphics still hold up very well, and the sound effects are also the same ones used in the original game, so you can expect an attractive overall package. Even though the single-player game hasn't changed in Unreal II: The Awakening Special Edition, the XMP mode by itself makes the package worth a purchase for fans of team-based multiplayer shooters. And, as mentioned, those who already own Unreal II should definitely dust off their old discs, as the XMP mode is available to them as a free download. Our only worry is that Atari might be spreading its Unreal fan base a little too thin, what with the existing popularity of the multiplayer-focused Unreal Tournament 2003 and the impending release of UT 2004.
