Summary

What I consider to be the best game ever made.

The Good

Unreal is what I call the perfect game. It was released in '98 and even though "Half-Life" topped the charts, it didn't give you the awesome feeling of being in a colossal world, the big change of environment, the stellar graphics, the great replay value, as huge enemies, as awesome soundtrack, and as great final boss. Now I've played Half-Life. I love the game, I even bought the complete pack in Steam and I've looked at both games and Unreal simply stands out as being the better game. Anyway, in Unreal you get to play through gigantic maps with many incredible weapons. You fight your way through a place called Na Pali to save the peaceful inhabitants called the Nali from their evil overlords called the Raj. Depending on what difficulty you play it can take you weeks to finish this game.

The Bad

Some weapons you can't reload and is sometimes very necessary because you don't know how much ammo is left in a clip.

Too much to read. You get a translator witch picks up messages from all kinds of places, you don't need to read them but can be very helpful sometimes. Some times it will feel like there's a message to be read every 5 meters.

The Bottom Line

A must play game!! You can pick up the Unreal anthology very cheap these days. Out of all the old-school fps games you need to play this one the biggest priority. It can't apply to all gamers but for you who love old Sci-Fi games you need to play this.
