> From PC to Dreamcast, here's the low down on Unreal Tournament for the
Sega Dreamcast from
and Epic Games. Let the Online FragFest begin.
> Unreal Tournament's graphics are not the best seen on the Dreamcast for
a first person shooter, but what it lacks in graphics it makes up for in
animation. Gunfire, character animation, and the way you can destroy your
environment are what makes it cool. Overall the graphics are decent but
the animations are sweet.
> You get used to the control within minutes of playing it. You can also
customize your control setting to fit you personal needs. The Dreamcast
controller does great for this game, or you can play with the Dreamcast
Keyboard and Mouse if you're used to the PC controls (which is a nice touch
for all you PC fans out there). Overall the controls are simple and easy
> The sound is very well done. Each gun has its own unique sound effect,
and bullets hitting your opponent or a wall sound like they are are hitting
them at 100 mph. When you kill the enemy, you hear body parts and blood
splattering all over. Also, when you frag someone the computer says something
like "medics", "you suck", and so on. The sound effects are pretty good
overall. The music really gets you into the mood too.
> Unreal Tournament has many different modes of play. You can do an offline
multiplayer fragfest in Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, or Capture the flag,
which you can also play online. Then you can go online and Frag people
from all over the country in the comfort of your own home. Unreal Tournament
will keep you busy for hours and hours.
> Unreal Tournament goes from PC to home console with a great translation.
If you're a fan of games like Quake, I'd recommend this game (especially
if your a huge fan of FPS get this game for the Sega Dreamcast). This is
a very fun game that will keep you going all night long.
