Unreal Tournament

Does anyone still play this? Just fired it back up after a couple of years away and am enjoying it thoroughly, especially on the internet. 10 years or so ago, before broadband, it was patchy and full of cheating, whiny kids. Now, those cheating whiny kids are playing whatever COD is currently favourite and the real FPS players can shoot each other in peace. Logged on today - 105 servers and only 409 players. Don't seem to be any gobby, geeky fuckwits ruining the experience either. Found myself a couple of servers to play on and was wondering if anyone from here fancied joining in, you know, so I have someone to shoot who speaks decent English?  

If by some strange feat enough are interested, I'll fire up my own UT srever once more. If you want super fast paced, shoot-now-ask-later fun, this is the best game going.

Have seen this talked about on another forum, apparently it's been a hidden gem for a few years but now some gobby, geeky fuckwit has just joined and ruined it for everyone...



I actually dont really know what you are talking about!

you might persuade me to re-install it if i can find any room on my hard drive,instagib is the way.I never found it had too many cheats in its hey day.
They messed it up with all the ut2003 and ut3 .

I've been caning Rocket DM recently. Immense fun!

Cheats are easy to overcome by installing anti-cheat on the server. It just kicks cheaters out for you.

Never played unreal, its ID software isn't it?  I have just finished running through Quake 4 and it hasn't aged well.

Unreal -> Unreal 2 -> Unreal 3 = Epic (as in Gears 3)
Doom -> Quake -> Rage = id

its a world full of tanks,you start off with a light armoured vehicle witha pea shooter,and upgrade by earning experience ,a lot of people are raving over it.Obviously being tanks its not fasty paced,more tactical;.

Meant to be really good fun,im looking into it over the weekend,its free so can't really go wrong.

As him says, it was Epic Megagames. It is also one of the most shit hot bits of code ever. Back in 99, it would run at speed on a non graphic card equipped machine. It is properly fast paced.

yep the unreal tournament code was work of genius,it just played so right,every key stroke was immediately responsive,your movements were very precise,ive played most fps games and engine wise for control and response ut has never been bettered,even quake 3 which the press use as the benchmark didn't have such precision.
