Unreal II Preview

There's an Unreal 2 Preview on Computer and Video Games based on a visit to the offices of Legend Entertainment to check out progress on the upcoming FPS sequel. Amidst their complaints about traveling, the article offers first-hand impressions of the game, describing the experience of playing Unreal II comparable to the first time out with Half-Life, which left them "overwhelmed by just how much better it was than every other FPS out there." The article includes several quotes from Legend's Mike Verdu, one of which is included in the excerpt below that sums up their visit, and offers good news for those who bought video cards with T&L support a couple of years ago:
Just how well will Unreal II stand up against the competition? "I think it will stand up very well," says Mike, confidently. "Our game will look great because it is truly next generation – in all likelihood, Unreal II will be one of the first games on the market that truly takes advantage of next-generation hardware on a PC using hardware transform and lighting – or hardware T&L – on cards like the GeForce 2. I am also confident the gameplay will be great. The new game design innovations and the story for Unreal II add to a solid foundation created by UT and the original Unreal." Hard to argue with that really.

If we have to pit one game against other games in some sort of "which game reigns supreme" type of thing, then I suppose U2 really will hold up pretty well. At least from the screenshots it looks good, and being a fan of the original and UT (including the physics which didn't take me long to master) it's certainly at or near the top of coveted games list.
