Product Overview:

"Unreal Championship 2: The Liandri Conflict" brings the "Unreal Championship" franchise to Xbox and Xbox Live with bold enhancements to single and multiplayer gameplay including all new super-agile player acrobatics, third-person camera mode, and intense melee abilities. "Unreal Championship" fans can play as any one of 14 characters from the "Unreal" Universe, each with spectacular new Adrenaline powers that enable new offensive and defensive combos.

Key Features:


Bone-crunching melee combat. For the first time in an "Unreal" franchise game, players can battle using hand-to-hand weapon combat seamlessly melded with Unreal's trademark fast-paced shooter action.


Unprecedented player mobility. Combat takes on a whole new dimension. New third-person navigation makes it easy for players to pull off incredible acrobatic combo-moves. Levels are designed to allow the players to maximize their movement skills and take combat to a high-flying vertical level, never seen before in an action shooter.


Adrenaline Powers for fighting. New Adrenaline Powers enable players to deflect projectiles and invoke powers for new offensive and defensive tactics.


Unparalleled multiplayer action. The "Unreal" experience is optimized for Xbox Live, enabling players to take on adversaries from around the world. System Link provides the ability to play against others by directly linking Xbox consoles.


Intense single-player excitement. Players are immersed in a two-part, single-player tournament experience that allows the player to take on the role of a variety of uniquely-skilled characters, as well as the role of heroic Anubis as he fights to reclaim his people's Rite of Ascension tournament from the omnipotent Liandri Corporation.

will this be enough to tear me away from UT2004, and wipe the dust off my XBox that UT2004 is solely responsible for?

Those shots are incredible considering many high profile XBox games release screenshots in 1024*768 (CoughHALOcough)

Wish they'd turn on AA though :/

Malcom looks seriously f00ked up... everything else is eye candy, though. I have an Xbox myself, love it but not nearly as much as my PC... but this game warrants interest!

hal, this is the 'image corruption' I'm talking about. Now for some reason more of them look right, but after awhile they start loading messed up again.

edit: It's doing this in I.E. and Firefox both, but there's no consistency with which specific pictures get corrupted.
