Man, my experience with UT was pretty close to yours, we even began with the same map. I am a couple of years older though.

@dannyodwyer Hi! I just wanted to suggest a Random Encounter of Thief: The Dark Project Gold. I think that would be amazing!

I can't actually remember, did any of the Unreal games have any kind of single player?

My favorite part of this game is the map editor; so other games to play is Ms. 'Splosion Man [2011] and Spyro: Year of the Dragon [2000].

loved Unreal Tournament, played it so many times. There were some awesome mods too... I remember one which had a cool black hole gun...


Anyway, Danny is the best "reporter"  on Gamespot. He is at the same time the most informative AND funny!

Unbelievable how people still play it. It is one of the best multiplayer games  ever.

I used to have a laugh putting 16 bots on easy vs me on a small map. Then run around on a super rampage and see how long I could keep it saying monster kill.

Quite simply the best FPS ever. My opinion stayed the same for 13 years and doubt it's going to change anytime soon.

the Assault game mode was the ABSOLUTE BEST, The train, Castle and Warship levels were my favorite

Next I want to see the soldier of fortune games man those two games were great.  The random map generator in the second one was awesome if you wanted to just play without going to one of the campaign levels.

Unreal Tournament 3 was a disgrace, it had none of the imagination, creative design, fast compelling gameplay, or pure fun as Unreal Tournament.

Maybe i'm the only one (or maybe not) but i would like to see a new Unreal Tournament game for the pc and if possible either current gen or next gen consoles.

I am 41, I started on Castle Wolfenstein, then Doom, Quake, and the Unreal Tournament, which is ultimately my most favorite FPS ever. I just downloaded STEAM to see if I can give some body some!!!

I love the one when u had to stop a train.

So many good memorys.

Epic always had so many Great Map packs for free,Quake you had to pay throu the nose.

Yeah this was great too. But back in that time, multiplayer deathmatch for me was Quake III Arena all the way. All I ask of iD software, after the Rage botch-up, is to release something like Quake V Arena! That would be the best news.

Overall, this is the best game I've ever played. Nothing like it for individual rewards and team play rewards. The variety in weapons, weapon functionality, maps, game types is amazing. I still yearn for another arena shooter that "understands" what an arena shooter should be! There's an enormous player base out there waiting for someone to create the next great one and there is so much scope there to push the genre on - particularly on the eSports and community features side of things.

Unfortunately, all gaming studios seem to think that we want yet another Counter Strike (or CoD for those too young to remember CS) clone with real weapons and recoil. Its time to look back to find the future of successful FPS games!

Unreal is still the best shooter franchise ever made. If they make a new one it will continue the tradition.

I always liked Unreal Tournament better than Quake 3 because of the assault game mode.Those were the most memorable moments I had in an MP game.

Unreal Tournament 99 game of the year edition : 9.99

Unreal Tournament 2004 editors choice edition : 14.99

Unreal Tournament 3 Black Edition : 19.99

These are currently available on steam.. So if you guys are wanting to get back into it, go to steam if you cant find a physical copy of these amazing games that re-defined the genre.

Announcer-Monster kill!!... Holy Shi***t!!

I grew up with UT2004, back then I was just a noob with PC games. I believe either Halo CE or UT2004 was my first online fps pc game.

My addiction to this game (UT 2004 though) stopped like 5 years ago because I sold the game.  Actually I bought and sold it like 4-5 times to keep from playing it too much.  InstaGib, low grav, 1.35x speed and translocators on.  Barn was one of the simplest maps but oh so much fun.  heck yeah.

@FSOTP Yeah if I recall it was the first game to allow you to shoot off limbs.

@Ranma_X_basic Well, there is still Unreal Tournament 3; but it doesn't get much attention simply because, in my opinion, the feel of UT can only be captured via older graphics/physics engine and movement. 

It's almost like asking to recreate Pac-Man in next-gen, it just won't work because the mechanics of the game are meant to be old.

@HairyDweeb you sold/lost your copy?  wtf is wrong with you?  I have every single physical UT release ever made, my fav game of all time, god I was good at it too, until a pro made me look like a noob. :P  But I had revenge :P

@Juguard @HairyDweeb I still have Unreal Tournament III for PC and the 360 but UT 2004 and 99 are my favorite.  I'm already on eBay looking for a copy and downloaded the UT2004 demo, there's a server up on there.  I was good at it too and will be addicted again in a few days :)

@HairyDweeb @Juguard I miss those days, I would love it if more people would still play it.  I love the raw UT, there are way too many mods for it nowadays, I just want to replay the classic maps with core gameplay online with people :)
