Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

The eagerly awaited sequel to one of the PC's defining first-person action extravaganzas, Unreal Tournament 2003 doesn't disappoint. For packed onto its three CD-ROMs is some of the finest action gaming on the planet, along with enough to keep you glued to your PC for months.

Packed in this time, in addition to traditional Deathmatch, Capture the Flag and Domination modes, is the fantastic new bombing run. As with all elements of the game, it's introduced by an excellent tutorial, and even novice players will have little trouble finding their feet. Bombing Run adds a new team element, with the aim of getting the ball through the opposition goal. Think a first-person version of Speedball and you're there.

The gameplay in Unreal Tournament 2003 is far more tactical than you'd first think, although not to the detriment of those looking for a simple blast. But particularly in multiplayer mode--undoubtedly the highlight of a superb set of games--you need to think quite hard about your actions, whatever mode you're playing. It really can make the difference.

In some ways, the game hasn't evolved from its predecessor. Undoubtedly it's slicker, looks better and is more polished, yet the core of the action is still very similar. Yet it's such pure, engrossing entertainment you'd be hard pushed to grumble. In all, Unreal Tournament 2003 is an accomplished and successful marriage of the original with some very welcome new ideas. Even the weaker areas of the game are very good, but when it's doing what it does best it's utterly unmissable. Don't be without it. --Simon Brew

5.0 out of 5 stars High Octane Fun!! 20 Sep 2002
Having played the demo now for over a week I can confidently say that Unreal Tournament 2003 will be a worthy successor to its predecessor. All the elements which made the original UT a success are back in spades with plenty of enhancements to make UT2003 the best fast paced multiplayer shooter out there.
It's bigger, better, faster and even more addictive than before. It doesn't try to emulate games like Counter Strike or Medal of Honour in terms of recreating the gritty realism of real life war. This is a futuristic frag fest where individual skill and reflexes win over guile and precision.
The graphics as you would expect are eye poppingly good with the levels I've seen so far a class above anything out there in terms of style and atmosphere. The addition of large highly detailed outdoor arenas is a notable improvement on UT.
The game types of old are back with Deathmatch, Capture the Flag and Domination (slightly modified) all present. A new addition however is Bombing Run which I had my doubts about before playing it. Having tried it out on a number of online servers I'm hooked. It's american football meets rollerball with guns! The objective is to get the ball through the oppositions goal to score points. If you're lucky enough to find a closely matched game online, you're in for a treat because it is incredibly fast paced and end to end with twists and turns in the scores all the way. And yes team work does pay off, you're even able to pass the ball between team-mates to cut open a tightly packed opposition defence - just like in real sport.
I might go so far as to say Bombing Run is more enjoyable than Capture the Flag which is saying something!

By mr_ska VINE VOICE
I was quite eager to play this when it came out, but since I have got my hands on it and given it a thorough testing over the last year or so I have come to the conclusion that it just plain isn't as much fun as the original UT.
UT2003 is a really good game though. The graphics are lovely and the game plays well enough, with the various modes of play from standard deathmatch to 'bombing run' being lively and absorbing. So this is a definite buy if you don't already have the original UT, or even if you do have the original and a high spec PC and want to keep up with the crowd.
But it does lack one or two of the things that made the original so special. The sniper rifle has been replaced with the 'lightning gun' which just plain sucks. The thinking behind it was that the sniper rifle was too good. When you got taken out with a headshot the rest of your team had no idea where the shot came from so couldn't really do much about it, but that was part of the fun. You had to keep on the move and knew that you were gonna get splatted at least every now and then. Occupational hazard. The UT2003 replacement, the lightning gun, leaves a great trail across the map to show the world where you are and invites your opponents to take you out like a bug. Which they do. Easily. Which kills the fun of the weapon for both sides.
The Assault mode is missing too, and that is a total crime. The 'Overlord' map from the original UT kept me playing for ages, it was close to perfection and I loved it. It was worth the price of UT on it's own. There is just nothing in UT2003 that matches up to the fun of it. Sure most of the UT2003 maps are good, but not quite up to the 'Overlord' standard.

4.0 out of 5 stars Oh-so-nearly the ultimate sequel to UT'99 29 Aug 2003
By Mark Thomas VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
There's so much to talk about with UT2k3 it's hard to know where to begin.
For the first three months of playing this game, I hated it. I got annihilated by the bots (even on low skill settings), online games were a repeated lesson in how duff I was compared to everyone else (who all seem to speak another language: wtf? n00b! lamer!, etc.), the game types were unvaried and dull, and I could only JUST run it on my PC at any rate. But, entirely due to the fact that I loved the original Unreal Tournament, I persevered. Now, I think it's a really good game. NOT a great game, but definitely a very, very fluid and fun reflex-sharpener of a game.
Let's do the plus-points first:
The movement system is beautifully simple to use, and yet complex enough to give you a suitably athletic and high-speed method of traversing the maps. When it flows, it's incredibly rewarding.
The weapons are varied and fun to use, but watch out in online games - there are some people out there who are astonishingly good at getting one and two-shot kills, which can lead to frustration.
The graphics are gorgeous, as is the sports-like 'feel' of the game, and there is a new roster system for you to choose teammates, who vary in specialisations and gameplay styles.
However (and here come the downsides), I would recommend to definitely NOT buy this game unless your PC is well above the minimum specs, especially on the graphics card side, otherwise you'll have to turn the details down, but you'll still lose out on framerate, something which is crucial to play UT2k3 properly.
The bot AI for your teammates is totally unfathomable; they can sometimes be INCREDIBLY stupid, standing around doing nothing unless anyone crosses their path, whereupon they become crack-shots.
