is not a sequel to Unreal but more of an add-on that works separately
from the original code, the sequel to Unreal itself is in development
elsewhere. Some people were worried that UT would be more of
a 'Total Conversion' rather than a new game; we can put those
worries to rest right now because it isn't! UT takes the Unreal
engine, re-codes it to be faster, look better, replaces textures,
makes level design of the like unique to this title and adds
all new sounds and half a dozen stunning gameplay modes.
is packed to the teeth with guns and houses 10, all of which
have a second fire mode and feel as powerful as holding a Nasa
space shuttle in your hand whilst it launches. Explosions aren't
exactly exciting (unless you use the Redeemer, play it and see)
but weapon bullets, muzzle flashes and sounds all feel immaculate
for what they model.
and the gameplay?
gameplay in UT is a real problem for several staff members at
Speedy 3D who now find themselves embroiled in it so much so
that they can't write this review. As you can see we are doing
it now, but chances are the millennium has been and gone already
because we lost track of time. Such is the scale that you can
become so deeply involved in UTs many styles, variations of
play and weaponry.
