At $19.99 this edition of UT is a painless way to satisfy your trigger finger for a long time. If you made the initial choice between Quake 3 and UT and went with Quake, this is a good way to see what you missed. The better Mac gaming climate means better Mac games, and this choice of first-person shooters is a good example. I prefer UT’s weapons “feel” myself, and will probably spend more time behind the UT rocket launcher over the long term.

Whether it’s the best of it’s kind or not, for a modest price tag of $19.99, Unreal Tournament: Game of the Year Edition is plenty of bang for your buck.

While all of this extra content is a fantastic addition to an already superb entry in the first-person genre, existing users of Unreal Tournament will discover that these mods and map packs are already available for download online. If you already own Unreal Tournament, there's no compelling reason to shell out the 20 bucks for something that you can grab for free. However, if you're easily annoyed by long download times and hassling yourself with updating and configuring, or if you've never dabbled with UT before, Unreal Tournament: Game of the Year Edition just might be what you've been looking for.

If you don't already own UT and have a twenty to spare, pick it up; it's a great game. And the best part about UT: Julia Roberts is that you can separate it into its components and play Unreal Tournament without the chipper, obnoxious overbite part. How delightful it would be if I had that option when I went to the movies with my wife to see Reservoir Dogs (a film by Nora Ephron).

Additional play options that make the "Game of the Year Edition" what it is are the Rocket arena and Chaos mode. Whether you choose to fight to the death in the ruggedly bare-bones Rocket arena (no power-ups or weapons upgrades), or use the sword, crossbow and animated smiley-face mines to blow your opponent away in Chaos mode, you'll find interesting and momentarily diverting gaming. Even though these additions don't really break any new ground in terms of originality, it's unlikely gamers will be bored whether fragging solo or playing head-to-head in an online battle to the death. In the realm of first-person shooters, Unreal Tournament: Game of the Year Edition is sure to please the gaming adrenaline junkie with beautifully rendered graphics and pulse-pounding gameplay.
