What Gamespot Users have to say about Unreal II: The Awakening

    All around good FPS

    Rated on March 30, 2008 by DrewTheSchu

    I was surprised that Unreal II didn't get a higher score. Personally I thought the graphics were solid, and the storyline was pretty good as well. Weapons were pretty standard as with all FPS games...

    Unreal 2 is a First Person Shooter being released to the market with much fanfare and much hype. The first Unreal was a landmark in graphics, sound, and playability. Any gamer will tell you one of the...

    OK...This is the review you want to read. I’m going to tell it to you how it is. First this game does not suck as far as first person shooters go. It has a lot of pros and only a few cons. The g...

    If you want a fair, unbiased review, look no farther. For starters, THIS IS NOT A MULTIPLAYER GAME! It never was and never should have made to be one. The orginal Unreal didn't have multiplayer fun...

    Unreal 2 rocks

    Rated on December 28, 2005 by toxic_shock

    I just bought this game together with Unreal Tournament 2004 for 30 euro...and both games rock. Don't judge Unreal 2 for the lack of multiplayer. This is why there is UT2004. So, it is all about the...

    Unreal 2 looks incredible and has a lot of cool weapons, but the gameplay is so-so, and level design is mediocre.

    Rated on November 12, 2003 by doctor_kaz

    Overall, Unreal 2 is a decent run-and-gun shooter that is at least worth picking up in the bargain bin. It doesn’t have a lot of substance or originality to it, but if you are an FPS player, then you...

    This was a good game. Not a great game, but a very good one. It’s very hard to stand out in the glutted FPS market, and Unreal II fails to do that, but it delivers a good, solid game from start to f...

    Unreal II: The Awakening is a solid first-person shooter. The game suffers somewhat from high expectations, which it does not live up to. However, the graphics engine, for which the orginal Unreal w...
