    hehe, you would be better of with Unreal 1. Cheaper and waaaaaay more fun to play. 99% of the people here will agree with me.

      The UT series took the next step in FPS gameplay :up:


        Since UT2k3 has come out that's been the standard by which other games can be compared for the last year. None of the other games listed on Gamespy's stat page have better graphics or features. Halo could have been the next best thing, but we see how horribly it runs and the graphics are substandard compared to UT2k3 anyways.


          graphics aren't that important to me at all. i like the ut2k3 graphics, but gameplay is way more important to me. that's why halo sucked so hard, the gameplay was horrible, not to mention the netcode and graphics. but that's why i love q3 and ut, the gameplay in those games were great. not just fun, but well balanced and very skill oriented.

          and yes, the quake engines (especially q3) are truely amazing works of art. i can't imagine what the d3 engine is gonna be like.

            absolutely. i in NO WAY mean to diminish the role and importance of the quake/doom series. they have DEFINED the genre... offline and online.

            but that doesnt mean they continue to define anything (although ET could be one of the more under-appreciated products on the horizon).

              If you have the IQ of forrest gump, then yes.


                UT/UT2003 - Very fast, less laggy then most FPS, and cool weopons, instant respawn

                BF1942 - Slower, made vehicles cool, slow respawn (varies), group effort, very fun.
