Summary

An ideal way to get your XBOX live gear up and running

The Good

Well, to start off, since Unreal Championship is Unreal Tournament 2003 on the XBOX, you can expect the same modes. Thats okay, because the modes are awesome. Double domination and bombing run are the distinctive modes, while plain old deathmatch, team, and CTF are there also.

The graphics, while not exactly up to its PC big brother, still prove to be excellent. The textures, gunshots, and areas all look amazing. Sound was also a plus, as all the sfx for voices, shots, and physical stuff was great. Control is laid out well, and all the downsides to a console shooter are absent. UC did a good job of mapping out commands, and while a mouse and keyboard is better, this still keeps the game going.

The Bad

Unfortunately, UC falls where UT2003 did too. I hated the character models, they all looked alike, and the little glows to seperate your team from the others was not enough. The character models were all boring and looked almost exactly the same. Not good at all.

The Bottom Line

UC is an ideal game for the new XBOX liver. For the XBOX, the game is very good, and the models aren't a huge issue. Still, the game isn't perfect, and that's why it earns a score of (4 OUT OF 5)
