A Masterpiece
28 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

In 1997 quake 2 was out, and half life debuted in 1998 (based on the quake 1 engine). Maps had bland colours, boring flat textures. Lots of concrete, more polygons.

Then entered Unreal. Huge variety of textures and lighting. Large outdoor areas. Detail textures that looked good up close! Great water/lava/fire animations. Amazing sound track that changed to suit the action. Fantastic ambient sounds. Smarter bad guys, huge variety of weapons with alternative fire modes. A story line. Everything came together seamlessly, which made it feel like you were really there.

It was basically a single player game. The multiplayer aspect was updated and re-released as Unreal Tournament in 1999 winning many awards.

This game is a piece of art.
