Actiontrip Gets Unreal
12:31 PM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Actiontrip has posted a new dual-preview of both the singleplayer Unreal 2 and multiplayer Unreal Tournament 2003. This quick new article gives a short rundown of Epic Interative's history with the series, as well as going into where both games will stand upon release in the coming months. By splitting the games into two distinct series, Epic has allowed each to focus on what they do best, storyline and online gameplay, respectively. While neither game has explicitly been announced for the Mac yet, we're hoping to hear something in the future, since they both seem to be likely candidates for porting. Here's an excerpt from the preview:

The perks to [Unreal Tournament 2003] are the game's impressive graphics engine, diverse weaponry (pretty much the same as the original game) and the improved computer AI. The computer-controlled AI takes orders much more easily in this incarnation of the game - you can designate a specific role to a specific team member (ie, flag defense, escort, attack) before the round starts rather than having to navigate the orders on the fly. Of course, you can switch roles mid-match as well, if whatever battle plan you started with isn't working. Also, if a specific team member isn't pulling his/her weight, he/she can be booted from the team in favor of new blood.
Head over now to check out the rest of the article, and stay tuned to IMG for any news on Mac versions of either game.
