    Larkin is damn right.

    I wouldn't even dare calling those aliens in UT2004 "Skaarj".

    UT1 had the skaarj hybrid who had his own footsteps representing his weight, the higher view representing his height and his own taunts in skaarj language. UT2004 did not even have all this, how cheap.

    Accept it, UT1 is far supperior by design than UT2004 ever was.

    How so? UT3 has four main themes of maps if I recall it correctly. In original UT (without bonuspacks) it was mainly industrial themed (and some boring imo) maps. There are few exceptions, but that is only like one map in the crypt2.utx (which comes orginally from unreal beta and I don't get how would liandri build that cryptic theme map, if it was originally set in Na Pali (special temples built for Skaarj in the cryptic theme by Nali), so that's a weird lie in these map descriptions as well as other weird things, wtf time paradoxes and so on :lol:), one egyptian map, which theme seems again come from early Unreals partially (there were few screenshots with egyptian themed maps while unreal was in developement, although the textures are not same), but again only one map, I think it's a little waste of themes in original UT.
    The ut2004 has variety of themes because it contains also most of ut2003 content, but the quality of the new maps aren't that high, they all have pretty much simmilar shapes and are getting boring and I mean it mainly for DM.

    EDIT: And btw, skaarj hybrids in UT, to psycho: They had no special voices, the only special sound was the footstep, the other sounds were only pitched already existing voices inside script, no new voices or anything, so basically the skaarj sounds plus male voices in the monster speech, many people don't know about this, I first though it was standalone voice pack, until I looked in the script and that there are no other new sounds than footsteps. :)
    But still even that is better than ut2004 skaarjs.

    For me, it comes down to this: I had fun playing UT2004 online, despite its flaws. I can't really say the same for UT3, with it's ****ty netcode, empty servers and laggy mouse control. I don't think the game is as bad as some think it is, it really deserved a better reception. But with COD4 around, I can't find a reason to play UT3.

    I can't say I truly have/had an UT1 feel when I play/played UT3. Maybe I once said I did, but looking back on it... No, they're different games. Imho.

    UT3 then UT then UT2k4 for me... though i logged the most hours playing original UT, theres something about playing UT3 that is more fun overall and of course it looks great ;)

    i liked UT2k3/4 alot but that 'unreal feeling' feeling that both UT and now UT3 have just wasnt the same ...

    I like the sniper rifle in UT3 more then the lightning gun or sniper rifle from ut2004. That thread is merely a complaint thread about how the aiming system in UT3 seems to have been loaded with trojans.
    The UT3 sniper rifle is better, but due to aiming issues, i can't hit anything.

    But that was a jolly good attempt at a comback right there! :tup: If this forum had a rep system i'd give you +1.

    I do too. lol
    I would have prefered it if primary fire was impact hammer styled instead though. a cross between shield gun and impact hammer would result in a damn fine weapon.

    It also had many downsides that people seem to ignore. They only focused on the "omfg impenetrable shield u suk". Among many things were the facts it hampered your movement since you needed to keep it facing the enemy all the time and it wasn't a full body shield, you could shoot around it.

    UT3 has nicer graphics, but I'd take 2004 over it just because there's more characters to choose from.

    Maybe you should practice a bit more, if you can't hit anything with it. And I don't need anything from you.

    For DM/TDM I am surprised to say that I like UT2k4 much better.

    The weapons in UT3 are overpowered. The lack of FF makes everything basically a spamfest. UT2k4 required a lot more skill. Double jumps, wall jumps, shieldgun, fast weapon switch all required skill. Sure the LG ruled on certain maps and only in the hands of some players.

    UT3 is just spam away. There are so many lucky kills in UT3 by spamming 3 rox, fully charged goo, ect.

    I liked the UTClassic mutator in UT2003 best! It had nothing to do with UTClassic as far as I could tell but the game rocked with it.
    Unfortunately the one in UT2004 is completely different.

    My list from top to bottom:
    1. Unreal Championship 2
    2. UT2003 with the UTClassic mutator
    3. UT2004
    4. UT3 (but it's mostly about technicalities and maps. The gameplay is on par with UT2004, in my opinion. The HOLPs pushed the game up a great deal too)
    5. UT99
    6. UT2003
    8. Unreal MP
    7. Unreal Championship 1
