UT2k4 was a terrible nightmare that I still can't forget. What the hell was up with the floaty hitscan-focused gameplay, the cartoonish art style which looked like crap and the generic music (except a bunch of tracks). The fact that's the only Unreal game I have (not for outer reasons) uninstalled speaks tons. They managed to **** up DM in that game MY GOD how is that possible
I really hate it, but it had some awesome mods
Of course UT3 has its share of very very bad things too, like the menu being slow as hell and VCTF
UT2k4 is an incredibly flawed game. Some people liked it because of that, but you can't really claim its more balanced than UT3 is, because its not. Shocktape was ****ing awful.
A game can be super unbalanced and still be fun: UT99's Sniper Rifle broke the game and it is still a blast. But claiming its better from a game design standpoint seems silly to me if you are factoring in the viability of the different weapons.
