    All around good FPS

    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, with the exception... Read Full Review

    I've played a lot of FPS's. (Half life, Unreal/Tournament/...Thief...yummy) Never in my life have I actually fallen asleep while playing a game. Literally. The graphics engine on this baby is without a doubt the most i... Read Full Review

    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 their most memorable ga... Read Full Review

    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 functions though I'm su... Read Full Review

    Unreal 2 rocks

    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 single player which... Read Full Review

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

    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 are going to enjoy ... Read Full Review

    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 finish, with the usua... Read Full Review

    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 was also known, does ... Read Full Review
