Summary

Trying to be the next Quake 3, but stops way before......

The Good

Probably one of the best aspects of this game is the many types of gameplay and the many stages for each, although some levels are very poorly made (eg' Lava Giant. (WHO WANTS TO CTF IN THAT CRAPPY LEVEL??)

On the other hand, some levels are great to play in, like the Frigate, which I found to be very fun. Some game types were also very good, like domination.

The Bad

Here we are :
*Very slow, hard DMers will hate the slow choppy gameplay
*Graphics suck. Not colorful, instead just a few slabs of models put together<
*Single player tournaments hard and annoying
*Game finding process slow and unproductive, most servers fail to connect

The Bottom Line

Look, UT is decent, but it is not a solid DM game! If it was a single player, okay fine, but this game is just lousy. You want something good, go to Quake 3, Arena & Team Arena. I give Unreal Tournament a slow and poorly deserved (4.5/10)
