Ten thumbs up!

Blood! Explosions! Flying body parts! Crisp digital surround sound! Huge, detailed 3D arenas! Violence against women! Violence FROM women! Mooing war cows with rocket launchers! The deep voice of authority cheering you on with "Head Shot! or M-m-m-monster Kill-kill-kill!" I'm so glad to live in a free country where this hugely entertaining stuff is dreamed up and sold openly for $10 in K-Mart. Unreal Tournament has no morally redeeming value, but is glorious to behold and exhilirating to play.

If you set the low-gravity Morpheus arena to 50% speed, the game becomes dreamlike and truly immersive. When you can fearlessly leap from tower to tower in slow motion and fire a machine gun in midair, a uniquely thrilling feeling of freedom and power emerges.

The only thing I can think of to improve the game would be to add breakable elements to the currently indestructible arenas. Die Hard styled shattering glass or deadly splinters flying from wooden beams would add another level of danger and intensity.

Fellow citizens of this mighty Land of Liberty and Justice, blessed and guided by Divine Providence, we are indeed fortunate to have games like this. As we stand in the dawn of a new millenium, where finding the sniper's balcony on Deck 16 and quickly racking up kill after kill can become a treasured memory, let us give humble thanks and praise to the video game industry.
