i just found the reviews from another board so here it is:


Presentation
Lots of text describing arenas and characters and a few movies here and there to convey the "sport" theme, but not much glitz and glamour otherwise. 7.0

Graphics
Very good considering there's no difference between the look of online and offline games. Occasional stutters in framerate. 8.0

Sound
Good sound effects from guns, explosions and characters, but annoying game announcing can get to you. 8.0

Gameplay
Aim. Shoot. Repeat. But it's done well enough in both the single player and online modes that you will not get bored. 9.0

Lasting Appeal
Enjoyable multiplayer game modes and the potential for downloadable content through Xbox Live will keep you and UC fresh. 10.0

OVERALL SCORE (not an average) 9.2

Thanks for the info, buddy....

In looking at their scores and what they have to say about each column...I got to thinking that the 7.0 for presentation kinda bugged me. But, who cares about the presentation? Isn't that just the cut scenes before actually playing the game?

I'm also a little concerned about their score in regards to graphics. 8.0? I understand that UC looks identical to the graphical brilliance of Unreal Tournament 2003. If that's the case, then, it definately should be above 8.0...Unreal Tournament 2003 looks sweet!

I can't wait! But, unfortunately for me, I won't be able to get on XBL until after 9:00pm PST this Friday... :( But, I'll be playing late...VERY LATE (or should I say early :D)

By the way, I responded to your PM :)

The more I've been reading about Mechassault, the more I'm becoming interested. But, I think I'm going to rent Mechassault first before I spend the cash...

My hesitation at this point in actually buying it is due to fearing that I'll get smothered by too many good choices in games and not paying enough attention at Unreal Championship which I plan on mastering :D

Well that is an EXCELLENT score. I might just buy this instead of NHL 2k3. But jeez, I don't know. This is such a hard decision. I love hockey, but UNREAL!!! C'MON!!

i would get both, but if u can get uc first and get a nhl later, sports game prices go down faster than fps games

I think what JJaX is talking about is justified. I mean, let's be reasonable. The reviewer obviously hinted to downgrade UC. I mean, I can make any game *sound* dumb, but, it doesn't mean it is. Besides, there is a lot of skill that takes place instead of "aim, shoot, and repeat". I agree with JJaX...they are morons.

In fact, let me attempt to make all racing games sound stupid: "Gas, brake, turn". Does that make all racing games bad? Of course not...but, it sure sounds like I could be putting down the genre or a specific racing game. Know what I mean?

I agree, one of the strategies/skills includes...RECOIL! Yup, that SPRAY AND PRAY strategy won't work online, CS veterans (like myself:cool: )and Ghost Recon veterans know that. Depending on ur speed and/or position of ur body greatly affect the destination of your bullet. Crouching and shooting in short controlled burts increases accuracy but, running, going full-auto, or the combination of the two (OR U JUST CANT AIM:rolleyes: ) will get you licking your blood off the floor. If all you(JJAX) plan on doing is aim, shoot, repeat... lets just see how long you'll last online, though it might work better for UC than Ghost Recon or Counter-Strike.

ARE YOU A MORON!? I wasn't talking about being a GR vet, I was talking about being a CS vet. Think before you talk Koopa, or else I'll drop ur house on you!:mad:

Shiet, Ghost Recon is like my Rainbow 6, and Rogue Spear anyway. That's why I kicked @$$ at it when I was at ur house, and u couldn't figure out how to pick the right weapons...:rolleyes:
