Assault and the original Domination, as much as I love them, had some issues that prevented them from reaching their full potential online
Sorry, but that right there is one of the main reasons im not fully interested in UT2003 as much as I should be. Assault and domination were the best modes in UT, and the current crop of online games shows people like playing objective team based games (counter strike, medal of honor, BF1942, Wolfenstein etc..) where you have to do something like blow some big ass machine up, or steal something and take it somewhere.
Domination 2.0 might be interesting, but in the old beta version I tried it didnt seem to cut the mustard. CTF is old hat and deathmatch is fun for 2 minutes, so the only thing left in UT2003 is Bombing Run which seems very interesting indeed. For how long its taking to come out, you would think there would be more to a multiplayer orientated game than 1.5 decent modes.
Stick Assault in there with a fair few varying maps and sure enough the game will be good, but with its current old school modes that are available in every other multiplayer game, just what does this game have to offer is what im left wondering...
