    I don't doubt it....it is UT, after all. Pretty hard to mess up a recipe when you are just using a different mixing bowl.

    It's more like going to the store and picking up a cake, then redecorating it when you get home...

    Movement and scale are essentially UT3. The weapons are worse than any UT game ever created. There is really nothing else to the game than the movement and weapons.

    After reading a bit about the weapons it doesn't seem too bad. At least they seem to offer some variety again instead of sticking to the basic weapon set in UT4. It looks like no new weapons are happening despite suggestions there or replacement for them. If Toxxik offers an alternative for that it's very good.

    The weapons aren't balanced at all, all look the same, and have no real identity. The rocket launcher is just a bland overpowered rocket launcher. The Bullcrap is a shotgun/glorified flak cannon. Then there is the Falcon (identical to the sniper rifle in UT), the Violator (an assault rifle with a grenade launcher) the Stingray (a plasma cannon with a sniper beam secondary fire for some reason) the Dragoneer (a flamethrower with a useless charged secondary fire) and the Raven (identical to the Enforcer).

    They apparently have two other weapons coming, the Impactor (identical to impact hammer primary and link gun beam secondary) and the Hellraiser (identical to the Redeemer). They are all completely uninspired, except maybe the flamethrower that nobody uses because it is an awful gun.

    +1 above and of course they are varied in comparison with UT....it does claim to be a different game, after all. The least they could have done was create new weapons. Have a look at some YouTube vids (not the official ones) and pretty much everyone starts of by saying it is a UT3 ripoff and then about how overpowered the RL is.

    Also, check out the rocket launcher explosion sound. Familiar?

    The secondary of the flame thrower isn't useless. It does like 70 billion damage

    From the description it sounds a lot like the "FlameGun" that was initially in Unreal from 1996 to 1997 period. That gun eventually became the biorifle much later on. The original shot fireball projectiles or was supposed to. It evolved into unfinished flamethrower and then to napalm gel gun before turning into ges biorifle and the UT biorifle variants. Not sure if they took that inspiration but to me it would be a cool nod/trivia to the old days.

    I played this twice. First time, I was most amused. Came back to it, really stopped caring. I haven't played since. It feels kind of.. Soulless.

    Oh dear, how long until Epic come knocking with a cease order or something to them for ripping off their game on their own engine?

    I was going to comment something about how this would be akin to id taking action against all the Camping Grounds clones you'd find on UT2004.. Then I remembered that the guys making those maps weren't using it as part of a project to be sold for actual money.

    That and the fact that they don't say it was from UT or mention the original author at all. Even though its obvious to anyone who played deck16 oe any of its versions.

    It is one thing to have features like UT, it is another to steal maps and content.
