    Ut 2004 SE is a must, people if you are thinking about getting the standard addition its a waste, SE costs the same but you get the vtms and a cool head set, and a metal box, its on 1 dvd(instead of 6 cds) so if you dont have a dvd-rom, get one, but enough talk, i am going to play some ut2k4 :D :D :D

    It costs more in every shop I've visited and I've already got a good head set so I bought the standard version (I don't need no VTMs)

    Those mere 60 000 are for the entire world... US got 40 000 and the whole of Europe got a piddly 20 000 :(.

    They really should have made at lease 200 000 and sent them all over the world rather...

    My dad's in America on holiday and he asked me whether I wanted anything (he missed my last birthday *sob*) and I said UT2004 would be great. It's unlikely I'll get it though, but until he comes back I'll have to wait and see.

    I live in Europe in that little funky place called denmark I ordered this SE DVD couple a weeks ago and then got an e-mail that they didn't get it at their shop so then I found another place to buy and ordered it again yesterday and now I'm hoping I'm going to get my copy of the SE DVD version.
    They really should have made at least 100.000 copies that would have helped a bit.

    I got the standard dvd edition the other day, (i already have a headset for CS and some headphones that can't be beat for superior sound) and i can safely say this game ROCKS SOME ASS! The onslaught mode is really something with all the cars and stuff, it makes me wanna cry flying around in the raptor. The leviathan is highly awesome too if a [sarcasm]little[sarcasm] overpowered :D

    Unfortunately, online is very jittery with my 56k as expected, so i gotta wait till broadband rolls around these parts.

    also when you get broadband dont be shy to use voicechat until you almost get kicked from the server because its a truly innovative part of ut2k4, it makes such a big difference compared to all the games that i have played before...

    It's not exactly innovative (games like CS have been using voice chat for ages now and i regularly partake in some good yelling down the mic) but it is fun! Just dont be shy of your own voice :)

    Yep, UT2K4 is THE game to get... i'm trying to convince 3 people to get it and they actually thought of comparing it to Battlefield... meh.
    hopefully i can convince them cuz there is a certain SWEET racing mod that i know of...

    Yeah UnrealRacing is looking kinda sweet.

    lol.

    The thing feels like Micromachines and its the feel that decides whether I like a racing game. Unrealspeed feels the same. I think the cars are too small.

    UnWheel however is just right, I dunno what it is but the handling (although not the most realistic) is easy enough to pick up and play and there's not too much of a learning curve.

    unwheel takes advantage of ut2k3 and 2k4's ability to do offroad driving properly... actually, just 2k4, cuz the vehicle code is so much nicer now...
    i wonder how difficult is it to chage from 2k3 to 2k4 with the vehicles...

    I am actually hoping the UnWheel vehicles can be coded to behave somewhere in between 2003 and 2004. The ONS vehicles in 2004 are way to precise, they don't behave like they have any weight or mass. I didn't have much of an issue with most of the 2003 vehicles, especially the blue Viper. The viper drives very predictable and believable. Viva Unwheel \o/

    the way that ut2k4 seems to be treating the vehicles is a way that i dont like... like theyre tweaking the vehicles to be 'warlike', like the game tests you more on if you know where to go with it rather than if you know how to drive it (except those times when your trying to crush someone, especially in a manta) , they behave in a way that even brain dead kids can handle, as opposed to handling in a realistic way that unwheel is trying to do...i think if the vehicles followed the physics code too closely , it would give players too much to worry about in a situation where they are supposed to kill other players... but in unwheel, taking control of the vehicle should be the player's only worry... and 2k4's vehicle code looks like its pretty good...
