hey undertow, name 3 games out there (i.e. released) that look as good as UT2003 with all the graphics turned up
We're not talking about UT2003, dink, we're talking about UT2004, an as of yet, unreleased game that has DX7 graphics. All the effects used in UT2004 can be done in the much older Quake 3 engine.
As for the game, Epic keep regurgitating this tired and shit gameplay with the knowledge that idiots like you will buy it. UT2003 is fucking boring. Halo, with all the problems and unbalance issues that Gearbox don't seem to have a clue how to fix, or just don't have the will to, is far more fun than UT2003. CoD mops the floor with it. Even XMP is more fun than UT2003. UT2004's going to be no better, the addition of vehicles and a couple "new" game types isn't going to make it any more appealing.
It plays well on a lot of machines, it has been the least buggy games across the widest hardware, and it has solid bot support.
Makes it one of the top two games for small lan parties in my book.
I see. So gameplay isn't a factor at all, when it comes to what makes a good game? Moron. And it's bots are not freaking solid. Totally inhuman.
Besides, i'm getting so sick of these MP games. I'm looking to forward SP games.
