Atari Australia Press Quotes - Windows:
    "Part of the excitement over UT2003 comes not just from the game itself, but from the Unreal editor, a direct gateway for mod and map makers. The editor allows map creators to include prefabs or static meshes, previously created in 3D Studio Max, and imported into the editor. " - Games Domain

    "In fact, the graphics on the version we were playing were universally superb. Being an unfinished build, some animations were lacking, but the scenery was excellent, particularly in the outdoor levels, featuring waist-high grass, deep patches of light and shadow, and a nice variety of multi-level pathways and walkways" - Games Domain

    " The first thing you notice is the exceptional graphics. I have never seen before such a great attention paid to the visual details. The weapons, the bots, the players and the maps, the shadows, the water reflection, the light effects, the liquid textures from the walls, all of them look incredibly beautiful and so detailed." - Computergames.com

    " Unreal Tournament 2003 is one of the most complete and stable games ever launched. It's not just an Unreal Tournament with a better graphics: better tweaked gameplay and higher speed make it the fastest-paced FPS after Quake and well balanced weapons plus the best graphics anyone has ever seen in a game determines every Quake III or Unreal Tournament player to consider it the best option available this year. 97% " - Computergames.com

Back of Box (Canada):
    MVP or DOA -- which wil you be?

    Unreal Tournament 2003 takes sports combat to the next level. Will you be a superstar of the warrior elite, famous galaxy-wide -- or just another trembling victim of the Tournament? Echoing back to the Gladiators and arenas of ancient Rome, human, alien and other more sinister warriors are locked into battles where there can only be two outcomes -- victory or death...

    Lightning reflexes, awesome weapons and the skills to use them will determine if you're a contender...or a moving target.

    Unreal graphics and sound.
    Eye-popping visuals that are beyond the cutting edge and advanced 'Rag doll' physics combine with full 3D sound to deliver you into the pounding heart of battle.

    Devastating weapons and technology.
    Pulverize with the Flak Cannon, unleash a hail of explosive bullets or nail a headshot with the Lightning Gun. Just three ways to increase the body count in your favor.

    Intense single and multi-player action.
    Select and command a team of elite warriors. Blast your way through the leagues, or go online and test your skills against human opponents worldwide.

    Alien worlds, Alien races.
    Humans, 'droids, aliens and... things that were once human are both teammate and opponent in lush, tropical jungles, devastated industrial ruins and orbiting space stations.

    Build your own game.
    Use Maya Personal Learning Edition and the Unreal Editor to create your own levels, build unique characters and design your own game mods. Take them online and challenge others in your own personal arena.

    New skills to master.
