    Yeah I remember Unreal classic used to have an option for Deathmatch but I didn't put it in cuz the Unreal series is something else.

    UT1 is superb and still for nine years. UT2004 was only good with mods (never liked its vanilla gameplay and its stock vehicles), but its easy modding kept me playing it.

    I rather not explain UT3 being console-fied (do not tell me how is it consolized). The only time the game crashes my computer was that I had 1 GB of ram (now I have 2 GB) and tweaked the ini settings (it seems UT3 is more on editing INIs than the past series). Before the ram update, the game did crash on DM-Heatray and large maps.

    On a side note: Yo G! What's up man? Haven't heard from ya in weeks. Get better man, really. (Pop on xfire so we can talk someday)

    On original topic:

    UT2004 is the best game. Here's how I see it:
    2004 -> 99 -> 2003 -> Halo 1 PC(blech) -> UT3

    Just it's vast ability and engine power for not only it's time but today's time still makes me <3 it. It's just harder to <3 it now then it used to be, having my 8600 GTS makes it laggy and hard to play on certain maps.

    Edit:
    While this factoid may be true, its not the entire truth. For the record I came in with UT99, started '00 I believe.

    And some ppl think that ut2003 or ut3 is best while ut2004 is worst of the series, but I think it got something true in it and i personally find ut2004 to be worst as well, sure it's fun with some things etc, but it eats too much of space (my ut2004 is 12 GB big and I don't even have all the stuff from the editors choice edition, the bonus mods, only chaosut now and tried two other mods shortly but had to uninstall them and they didn't seem much good to me, plus some other mods downloaded from net under certain people's advice but not much of it) with loads of useless and mediocre stuff and the basic gameplay until you activate tons of muttaors suck pretty much, it's slow paced, much slow paced than ut2003 base gameplay which was more fast paced and more towards first quake style (That morbias style map gael or hows it called really rocks online in ut2003 and even offline and that is with default stuff).
    Not to mention the cartoonish graphics suck and even more than it was in the end with ut2003 or during ut2003 developement, I mean ut2004 is extre,e in that, sometimes it can be good but it's certainly not IT.
    I think the best is still the original UT(GOTY).

    And Invasion like style games you can have even at first Unreal with certain mods downloaded and with much more fun, the invasion is only fun at ut2004 with classic ut mutator, ut2003 style, species statistics and quadjump i think, otherwise its boring as hell.
    The most fun i found online to be vehicle ctf which didnt contain any maps at first too. :rolleyes:

    Good and hard question.For some weeks I got my new PC and finally I'am able to play Unreal Tournament 3 and Gears Of War,GOW is a game which doesn't need many words to describe it,it's just awesome,at the moment my favourite game forever.However,UT3,sure the game looks not that bad,more good,but I don't understand,but the gameplay isn't that good,of course,the game is faster,but the weapons are a little bit too strong and the space where you take damage by these weapons a little bit too big,too.Like GOW,the game looks good,GOW looks alittle bit better,but the gameplay of UT3 isn't that good,I prefer more the feeling of UT2004 and UT,that is better,I don't wanna say that UT3 is bad,it could be better.Anyway,I've been a fan of Unreal for a very long time,like many of you guys and I can't decide between UT and UT2004,both games are and were great,but UT2004 looks better and the gameplay is just a little bit better,so UT2004 is my favourite UT game,but it can't beat Gears Of War,UT2004 and UT FTW.:)

    Given the choice to play any of the UT games at this point in time, I would choose UT3 9 times out of 10. However, in terms of how much enjoyment I got out of a UT game during its peak years, UT99 wins hands down. Perhaps it's the nostalgic effect, but I really miss the fun times that were had with UT99 in the pre ut2ghey3/4 era. So I voted for UT99.

    Despite the fact that I was a better UT2004 player than I was a UT player...

    UT was the perfect mix of gameplay, features, maps and atmosphere right out of the box.

    UT2003 was a mess. UT2004 was a lot better, but was still broken at the core.

    I'm torn between UT and UT2004 but voted for UT. I like both alot and I even like UT3. UT just plays different than the newer ones and I suspect I have nostalgic feelings for it since I played it first. I played UT first, then Unreal Gold, then UT2003 and so on. I just recieved Unreal 2 last week and I picked it up used for about $2. :rolleyes: So I cannot comment upon the gameplay of that one yet.

    Somebody can see through the nostalgia, though. I grew up with UT, being it my favourite and most played game from 2000. If I close my eyes I can still see Xan on his spaceship and remember the great fun I had. It definitely holds a place in my heart.

    But if I look at it without nostalgia, I must say that UT3 is really better than the original UT.
    UT3 just plays better. I never had so much fun in a DM, Duel, and CTF, and I played all the series...A LOT.
    UT3 I like it's fast action, the powerful and balanced weapons, the bot that gives you the best challenge of the series and I like its style. The gameplay its outstanding.
    And please note that I left out the vehicles (even if we should count them in, they're an addition) and of course the graphic. I'm comparing the core game only, and I say that UT3 it's just better.

    I understand that you (like me) have a personal attachment to UT, but try to look at it objectively. (note that I don't play UT from years so I might mistake something).
    - Do you think it's right that the shock rifle primary does 60 HP being it more of a sniper tool than the actual sniper rifle (that shoots faster)
    -Have you ever killed somone in a duel with the biorifle?
    -Long ray of the pulse rifle that make it useful even at medium distances, so not having to switch weapon
    -Rockets so slow that make actual skill almost useless as it's more of a random bombardment (and with 6 rockets)
    -Flack that do not bounce enough and it's not useful around the corners, it just leave shrapnels
    -Ripper that is most useful to spam
    -Enforcer (single) that easily owns RL and Flack at medium distance


    Well, the following UTs have fixed all of the above.

    The bots then, well, were just crap compared to the UT3 ones.
    In UT CTF (and Assault) does not work offline, the bots are too easily ownd because they behave like dummies.




    I know it holds a place in you heart...every gamer has a beloved game.
    I'm convinced that Doom II is still the best game of all time, for example.

    UT2k4. Has all the best Gametypes, I even like Bombing Run against Bots! :lol:

    UT was great back in the day, but lacks Vehicles.

    UT3, well, WTF was Epic thinking? I don't care abbout "Interface/Menu", but where are the Gametypes? Reminds me of UT2k3 when it came out and people were dissapointed. I'm also finding that the Art Direction is getting less interesting. Sure it's detailed, but I much prefer the believable to the increasingly bizzarre that it's going.

    Not that it matters much, because I have never actually released a Map, but I'm seriously considering learning Hammer and Mapping for CS:S. Perhaps would never release a Map for it either, but I just find myself getting less and less interested in all things Unreal.

    I went (and still go) for UT.

    After it was released I played the hell out of it with my (in those days already old) Voodoo3 card and I'm still enjoying it most.
    I have very fine memories of those days :)

    Some mates keep calling me crazy because I put the GOTY box with some 3dfx cards into a showcase. But well ... ;)

    Personally UT2k3 was just a graphics update until UT2k4 came out which I still enjoy when playing it from time to time.
    As for UT3, well ... the art direction is great but I hardly play it.
