Itís been a while since I last played this futuristic shooter on my PC but there I was looking through various boxes looking for the cd labelled Unreal tournament, after throwing everything from pens to Papa roach cdís across the room I finally found it, issue one of Playboy. As I sat there looking at all the naughty topless woman pictures I started to notice something, all the good looking girls had staples through their breasts, typical.

Anyway after that two minute distraction I clean myself down and carried on looking for my Unreal Tournament disc which I could have sworn was in the same box as all my other junk but it wasnít, so I thought maybe itís in my computer desk draw, so I walked over to my computer desk and opened the draw to see if I had dumped it in there but there was no UT cd there, just a few PS2 games, a couple of dvdís and a packet of strawberry flavoured condoms.

I next tried looking behind furniture such as my desk, chest of draws and wardrobe that seem to hide loads of stuff behind their dark shadowy back boards (usually dust) but it wasnít meant to be so a slumped into my twisty chair in front of my PC and decided to play a song on it for a change, so I selected my Nicelback album from my cd holder and opened up disc tray to find, my Unreal tournament cd laying there in the disc tray staring right back at me, so I though stuff the music I will installed Unreal Tournament on to my computer instead.

After an hour of revisiting the good old classic death match chaos, my mother walks into my room asking me the usual motherly questions while moaning about her day at work, she walks over to my computer and watches me firing rockets at an unsuspecting bot while complaining about the amount of blood and guts I just coloured the wall with, she then walks away and suddenly says ďWhatís this?Ē I turned around and there was my mother holding my Playboy magazine aaaaagggghhhhhhh, oh well at least I found my UT game again.

Thank you for reading.

You only talk about the graphics i started TO almost 3 years ago it looked crap but was so addictive..
Hopefully the new patch will stop them cheaters.

They all have bad points:

UT - Very playable but too easy to master
TO - Excellent graphics but ridden with cheaters
UT2K3 - Excellent graphics but strays from original UT too much :|

UT is one of the coolest games ever.

Played it first time with Breed by Nirvana on, alochol in system, and on the c-l-a-s-s-i-c Overlord level.

I never really liked Tactical Ops myself, it kinda spoilt the idea of UT being futuristic etc.

I just think theres something about UT that 2003 doesn't have.

Yep. I tried infiltration but back then weapons used to go through solid textures.

UT 2003 has nicer graphics, but it isn't as good as the original UT.
